Batman / BtVS Drabble sequence

Here's the next part of the Batman / BtVS story, with a note which is mainly aimed at reviewers on one or two of the archive sites. Comments please (especially if you think I'm being a little too rude) before I post to archives.

100-word BtVS / Angel / DC crossover Drabble. Minor spoilers. Characters are the property of their respective creators and are used without any intention of infringing copyright. This story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis. Sequel to First Contact, Second Thoughts, Third Party, Fourth Possibility, Fifth Ring, Sixth Sense, Seventh Seal and Eighth Avenue.

Ninth Symphony

By Marcus L. Rowland

"Well?" Batman asks after ten minutes.

"Still simmering a little," says Oz, strumming Beethoven's Ninth, "But better."

"What are you? My therapist?"

"You get mad, I get mad. You wouldn't like me mad."

"Like that TV show?"

"The Hulk? Kinda."

"So... Faith?"

"You know what she does?"

"Kills people."

"She was kinda... unbalanced."

"She isn't now?"

"She gave herself up, did time."

"She escaped."

"She was needed."

Batman waits.

"Remember the LA blackout, the mass murders? She stopped that."

"Single handed?"



"Helped kill the right demon."

"Why her?"

"Becase she's a Slayer."

"A what?"

"A Vampire Slayer."

Author's note: Some of the reviews I'm getting for this sequence have asked me to expand on the stories. Please try to understand that I write Drabbles and stories with Drabble-length chapters because I like this format and find it technically challenging. If I can tell a story in a hundred words, anything more is unnecessary padding. If you want longer stories by me, please check out my work on, Twisting the Hellmouth, Fonts of Wisdom, and other sites; I currently have about a third of a million words archived on each site, there ought to be something long enough for you somewhere there!
