Just a sentence or two

Her eyes trace the patterns of her guilt in the shadows surrounding him. He speaks of wasted salt and flesh, and her soul trembles at the accusation unspoken. Words have rarely been hers, and tonight they flee his broken whispers.

No one will rest.

That's beautiful, Chris. Wish it had been this Buffy I saw in the church scene.

Re:
Having trouble coping with the ettiquette of threading here, so just replying here, where you prompted my little rant...

Truthfully, that *is* the Buffy I saw at the end of BY. I'm not quite clear yet on where her head is since that moment, but I did see the emotion and the fear in her during that finale scene.

And I suppose the question you're raising is all tied up with my current block. I think I see where ME is going, and why they're going in this direction, and my emotional brain is trying to connect the dots, but some of them are missing.

I'm an impatient woman. I want all the dots now, not in dribbles over the next three or four episodes before all the typically-Buffy repressed emotions explode in a SMG-special emot-a-thon. I know it's the pattern they've established for her, and I know it's the dramatic pattern of storytelling they've established in prior seasons.

But I don't have to like it, do I? And they're leaving us such tiny, tiny clues right now.

Sigh. I think this page is trying to tell me I'm talking too much. More later...

::sigh:: Wish I could concur. I really, really, really don't want to dislike Buffy. So far, though......but I'm hopeful. Perhaps your lovely prose can convince me? :)

Someday...
For you, I'll push to get it done. It's pulling at me, coming in bits and pieces, but it's terribly schizophrenic right now. I suppose that should tell me something about what needs writing, but I'm slow to sort it out.
