Topic 460, 462, and 464 [31 Dec 2012|10:51pm]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

TOPIC #460 - Why do you persist?

That is a question I've bloody well asked myself a thousand times over. Cause by all rights I should have been dead and gone over a century ago. I'm a product of the Victorian Era. A relic of the past. But despite everythin'. Despite becomin' a vampire. Bein' a very bad man for many a blue moon. Gettin' chipped. Fallin' for a lovely bird. Becomin' a good guy. Goin' through hell to get my soul back for the girl I love. Dyin' a very painful death for said love. Comin' back as a ghosty to haunt an old sod. Only to become a soulful vamp once again.

Why do I persist? I don't really have a bloody clue. Could be bad luck. Good luck. Dumb luck. Don't really know. Don't really give a piss. Whatever the soddin' reason for my continued existence. All that matters, is that I'm a persist bugger and leave it at that.

TM Topic 446, 454, and 455 [01 Oct 2012|11:40pm]
[ mood | lonely ]

Topic #446 - What sort of person are you?

I'm just your not so typical, cool British bloke. A bit more specific. Like Angel, I'm a vampire with a soul. And like Angel, I used to be a bad guy. But am a good guy now. All selfless and noble.

Uh, anyway, unlike broody old Angel. I try to have a little fun. I like to drink, smoke, and gamble. I'm a bit cocky. Am bluntly honest. I tell things like it is. I'm a rebel with a cause. Fashion wise, I love wearing my black leather duster. And look way better than Billy Idol, so really don't see the resemblance. Sports wise, I'm a big fan of Manchester United. My choice of music is classic british bands like the Ramones, and Sex Pistols. Speakin' of sex. I'm a great lover. Can charm the pants off most birds. And since Buffy might be readin' this, will just leave it at that.

When not bein' all romantic and noble. One can usually find me kickin' butt and not takin' names. Cause I like killing sodin' demons... and dustin' poncy vampires. When not fightin'. In my spare time I'm always up for a good game of kitten poker. Or just hangin' at a bar gettin' drunk.

And when my services are needed. I'm also a hero. Have saved the world several times over. So all in all. Like me or hate me, I'm a damn good man.

Topic 435, 441, & 445 [29 Jun 2012|06:34pm]
[ mood | awake ]

TOPIC #445 - Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf? Gotta go with a vampire. Duh.

No offense to a couple of not so big or bad wolf's I know. Seein' that I'm a bleedin' vampire and all. It is difficult for one of the best vampire's of them all... not to be a little biased. Hard not to show favortism towards my vampiric kin. Werewolf's only come out to play durin' a full moon. The rest of the month they are just a normal Tom, Dick, and Harry. While vampires are always supernatural... always undead creatures of the night.

Let's just say that yours truly believes that vampires are better than werewolves. Vampires are cooler. Vampires are smarter. Vampires are bigger and badder. Vampires are immortal. And in my case, vampires are incredibly good lookin' and wicked cool.

So it's a given that I don't wanna be the Shaggy Dog. I'll leave the fleas and howlin' at the bloody moon to Red and Angel's ex's Oz and Nina. Think I'll stick with bein' my cool, charismatic, and charmin' blood suckin' self.

Topic's 421, 424, 428 - Misheard, Famous, & Forgotten [29 Feb 2012|10:00pm]
[ mood | lonely ]

TOPIC #428

Uh-oh! You forgot to do something you were supposed to! Now what?

Think I had a pretty good excuse for forgettin' to do somethin' I was supposed to do. What was the excuse you might ask. I died. And became a big bad vampire. Now that's a pretty good excuse. Least I think so.

But seriously when I was alive. I would have apologized if I had forgotten to do somethin'. Cause I was a very dependable, studious and reliable bloke. But that was then. Now if I forget to do somethin'. I don't say sorry. So I'm not gonna apologize for forgettin' a birthday... anniversary... or what not. I'm a vampire for pete's sake. One should be grateful I don't bite 'em.

So just to avoid any problems. I forget stuff. Remind me of whatever was forgotten. I'll try not to forget next time. But don't expect me not to forget things. I get drunk every so often. Gettin' plastered does not help in the rememberin' department.

Lastly, with respect to any of my friends out there. Do try to get someone else to pick you up at the soddin' airport. Why the blue blazes would you even be foolish enough to think I'd be reliable. I'm not a bloody chauffeur. I don't even have a driver's license. And I'm cranky, moody and argumentative. So why the hell would you expect me to take you anywhere. Therefore, unless you know who wants me to pick her up for a romantic night on the town and a good shag. Call Xander. Andrew. Even Angel. They can't say no to anyone. And are better at not forgettin' to do such things.

Topic 417 - Riot [14 Dec 2011|07:40pm]
[ mood | listless ]

Riot

Unlike old Angel. I'm a riot at a party. I know how to let loose. Know how to have fun. Know how to kick it old school. But that's another topic.

Anyhow, I like every kind of riot there is. Unlike some, I like noisy, violent public disorder. I like a good ruckus caused by a crowd of blokes wantin' to do there own thing. Stand up for what they believe in.

Far as I'm concerned. Bein' a vampire and all. And havin' a not so warm and cuddly demon in me. Let's just say that my inner demon has never had a problem disturbin' the public peace. Or causin' trouble where ever I gone. Even more so back in my soulless days. Back in the old days I caused more than my share of riots. While, Angelus and Darla wasn't too happy 'bout all the trouble I caused. Dru didn't mind. Given that I was young and reckless. I didn't care 'bout the risks or ramifications of my actions. And like I told them. We could handle any angry mob. Plus it helped keep unlife a little more interestin'.

So I've never had a problem with riots. Matter of fact, I found some to be the most excitin' times of my entire existence. For example, back in 1900, an uprisin' against western influence took place in China. It was called the Boxer Rebellion. All the poor sods that got killed wasn't too fond of it. But for me, Angelus, Darla, and Dru. It was a blast. It was a chance to prove just how good a vampire I was. I took advantage of that historical event to kill my first Slayer. And earn a ton of respect in the demon community.

Then many years later. July 13th, 1977 to be a bit more specific. When a huge blackout plunged New York into riotin'. I loved the chaos after the lights went out in the Big Apple. The panic and fear in the air was delicious. While Dru was off havin' some fun on her own. I took a once in a lifetime opportunity to kill another Slayer. And got a really cool leather jacket to boot. So it was all good.

So I've found riots to be good times to do bad things. Seein' that I'm not bad anymore. Am thinkin' that any future riots I happen to experience won't be as much fun as the past ones. That is bad for my demon. But not so bad for any slayers who might have some worries 'bout me offin' them when the power goes out.

Topic 413 - Worst fight you’ve had with a friend? [16 Nov 2011|08:30pm]
[ mood | okay ]

What’s the worst fight you’ve had with a friend?

Seein' that I don't have many friends. And of the ones I do have. I've had my share of fights. Some verbal. Some physical. All of them Rated R. Let's just say that given how crazy stuff tends to happen to those I know. If I let damn things like arguments... disagreements... fights... misunderstandings... losin' ones soul... gettin' possessed by ancient evil... friends tryin' to destroy the world... Et cetera and so forth. If I let little things like fights get in the way of my relationships. Well then I wouldn't much have any soddin' friends at all.

Not to mention that sometimes fights can be a good thing. Allow friends to work out unresolved feelings. Get out all the bottled up emotions. Be bluntly honest about how they are feelin'. If done in a good way. It can be good for a relationship. Least I think so.

Topic 409 - Sore Loser. [19 Oct 2011|03:15pm]
[ mood | restless ]

Are you a sore loser? Pretty much.

You could say I don't like losin'. I always play to win. I will not allow myself to be a bloody loser.

So it goes without sayin' that I'm not that accustomed to losin'. No matter what the situation. No matter how impossible the odds may look. I'll come out smellin' like a rose. Cause I'm that damn good.

I've survived more than one Apocalypse. Saved the world. Saved it as a bad guy. Then when I became a good guy. Well then I saved the soddin' world a few more times for good measure. So I was good at bein' bad. And even better at bein' good. And no matter what. I always found a way t' come out on top.

In the rare once in a blue moon occurrence. I'll acknowledge that I'm not a good loser. No fault in wantin' to never lose. And even less so against someone your competitive with. I'll admit that I'd rather die than lose to Angel. Me and Angel have a long and very complicated history. Just as he doesn't wanna lose to me. I damn sure don't wanna lose to him. Ergo we have a friendly, or not so friendly rivalry. Whether it's in love or war. If either of us are involved. Whether it's about Dru. Or Buffy. If we don't get our way. We will always be sore losers.

Anyway, no matter how hard a bloke tries to never lose. If your around long enough. Crap will happen. I've been to hell and back. I've gone through some really rough patches. And have found myself on the wrong end of many a bad situation. But I've never given up. I've never called it quits. I've never thrown in the towel. I always get back up. Dust myself off. And move on.

Topic 405 - In bed. [28 Sep 2011|08:40pm]
[ mood | determined ]

In bed.

As much as I love bein' a fighter. I love a good shag even more. So it goes without sayin'. I've spent a good bit of my life in bed. And I didn't spend much of it alone either. Dru and I spent most of 117 years in bed. Well 'cept when we couldn't make it to a bed. In which case we settled for the back of a car. A romantic hayloft. In Central Park. At the local library. The laundromat. Bookstore. Courthouse. Morgue. Graveyard.

Uh, come to think of it. Guess I was never that picky about where I did it. Yet I do gotta say that out of all the places I've done it. I preferred my crypt. It was more intimate. More romantic. Allowed for more fun than just a quickie. Many hours of pleasure and awesomeness, if you catch my drift. Not to mention more comfortable than a table or hard floor.

So right, I've had allot of good times in bed. Thousands of hours of good times in bed. Maybe someday I'll write my life story. Course given how much of a ladies man I am. It would read more like a romance novel than vampire story. Oh wait most vampire books and movies these days read more like romance novels. But none-the-less, my story includes much time shared with the fairer sex. Much time livin' life to the fullest. In other words, it is allot more interestin' than broody old Angel. Poor sod wasted a century feelin' sorry for himself. So didn't get out there and have fun til he fell for the slayer. Only to muck everythin' up, and go back to bein' Mr. Broody again.

Anyway, to sum things up. I'm not like other soulful vampires that prefer to sleep in a coffin. Or who prefer to sulk all alone in some dark and gloomy abode. I love sleepin' in a nice cozy bed. I love even more sharin' said bed with a girl I love. And love most of all, given her a night she never forgets.

TOPIC 402 - One Bad Day [07 Sep 2011|04:15pm]
[ mood | depressed ]

Can one bad day change who you are?

As someone that has had allot of bloody bad days. I can say that a bad day can change who you are.

Back in 1880, I was very much human. T' be bluntly honest, I was a pathetic git. I sucked.

But that all changed. It all changed the day I was sired by my deadly beauty, Drusilla. She turned me into a vampire.

Helped change me into a totally different bloke. No more mister nice guy. I became strong. Powerful. Tough as hell.

I gone from weak and helpless, to strong and feared creature of the night. Feared big bad monster.

So one bad day, turned out to be the day that changed my destiny. Gave me a new purpose. A new way of seein' things.

Yet I've withstood not just one bad day. But too many to count. I've had allot of crap happen. I've lost everythin'.

I've lost family. I've lost many friends. I've lost my greatest love. Hell I've even lost my soddin' soul a couple times.

But despite it all. I remain strong. I remain resilient. I continue on in spite of all the difficulties and failures.

Topic 399 - Soft [10 Aug 2011|04:45pm]
[ mood | restless ]

Soft

I do not like the bleedin' word soft. It is my opinion that blokes should not be soft. Bein' soft makes a bloke weak. Bein' soft makes him vulnerable. Unable to succeed. Unable to do what has to be done. Unable to make the hard decisions. So to be blunt. I am not soft. Never have been. Never will be.

On the other side of the coin. I do like soft birds. Soft to the touch. Soft in all the right places. Course most of the ladies I know are not soft. Less fair maiden. And more tough girls. Less sugar 'n spice. More rough around the edges.

So a little bit soft is okay for the girly girls. But soft is not a word to describe me. I am the farthest thing from soft. I am big and bad. I am tough and rough. I am what one would call a bad boy. A outlaw. A rebel. A lone wolf. I march to the beat of my own drummer. I do things my way. Not the soft way. But the hard way. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Topic 390 - Sick [16 Jun 2011|07:20pm]
[ mood | depressed ]

Sick

Besides never growin' old. Stayin' forever young... forever hot. And never dyin' from natural causes. Not gettin' sick is one of the best things about bein' a vampire. So I don't have to worry 'bout gettin' sick or whatnot. But I still gotta worry when others I know and love get sick. It breaks my heart to see the ones I love suffer.

One of the saddest moments in my life. Well it was when I found out Fred was sick. Possessed by an ancient god known as Illyria. Eaten her up from the inside out. Takin' over her body. Destroyin' everythin' that she was. And leavin' only a shell of who she once was. It was all so sudden. Fred gone from bein' so full of life. So happy and in love with Wesley. To bein' so sick and gravely ill. It is bloody hard to talk about. Fred was one of the few people in the world that I ever connected with. We had a unique bond. A special friendship. I loved her. She was such a wonderful friend. She had such a beautiful soul. So kind. So loving. She believed in me. When others doubted me. When others didn't give a sod whether I vanished or not. She gave me strength. Strength to carry on and not give up. When I was stuck as a helpless ghost. Unable to touch the world. Fred gave me the courage to not lose hope. And thanks to her support I eventually became my soulful vampire self.

It bloody hurts to think about Fred bein' sick. Hurts a hell of allot more knowin' me and my friends wasn't able to save her. We all would have gone to hell for her. Died for her. But like other bad times. It seems like me and Angel are always destined to lose the ones we love. No matter how hard we try to find happiness. How hard we try to find friendship and love. The fickle hand of fate gives us a bad deal. So we are left with only our memories. Memories of better days. And hopes that maybe, just maybe everythin' will work out in the end.

Topic 381 - What is it you like about yourself? [13 Apr 2011|01:15pm]
[ mood | lonely ]

What is it you like about yourself?

I like bein' a vampire with a soul. My soul made me unique. It made different than any run of the mill vamps. Not heartless or uncarin'. Not full of hate and rage. Instead bein' a good man, and an even better demon.

So think that's what I like the most about myself. I like that I'm good. Despite all the crap I've suffered. All the pain. All the death. Heaven or hell. Soul or no soul. I'm still good.

I could yammer on about the many positive attributes I possess. But am tryin' to cut back on the braggin'. So will just keep it short if possible. I'll say I like bein' a wonderful hero. I like bein' a good bloke who lived... and loved. Who never gave up on his friends, or loved ones. A bloke - brave, noble, and selfless, as the night is long. A heroic man that lived everyday to the fullest. Done the best he could. Saved countless lives. Made a difference.

Topic 378 - Write about a time something blew up in your face. [23 Mar 2011|05:20pm]
[ mood | depressed ]

Write about a time something blew up in your face.

Rome. Italy. Circa... not too long ago.

The blowin' up of something in my face took place in a strada. Strada means road or street in Italian. It was on some bloody strada that Angel and yours truly was on a mission. We only had 12 hours to get the head of the Capo di Famiglia. And by head I mean literal head of some old Goran demon back to Los Angeles. Failure would result in LA becomin' a demon war zone.

So bein' the hero that I am. I'd humbly offered my services to help protect the people of LA from chaos and doom. And I might add, me goin' had absolutely nothin' to do with my ex... Buffy supposedly livin' in Rome... or accordin' to Andrew, the Slayer allegedly shackin' up with a dangerous scoundrel by the name of the Immortal. Granted I was concerned for her safety. And questioned her taste in men. But that was really nothin' new. Yet it was Angel that wanted to check up on Buffy every five minutes. Not me. I was completely okay with her movin' on. Doin' whatever or whomever she wanted to do.

Uh, anyway. If Angel would have just let me handle the mission. It all would have gone great. But no, like always, he had to do things his way. And his way resulted in lettin' some thugs distract us. While a loser butler stole the head at a disco. We then got a ransom for said head. We got the ransom money from Wolfram & Hart - Rome branch. We was told that everything would go smoothly. Just give the money and all would be good.

So we take the ransom money to a strada to get the soddin' head. We made the exchange. But what we got for our troubles wasn't what we expected. When we looked in the bag. A bomb goes ka-boom in our faces. The explosion ruined my black leather duster. Suffice to say, I was really devastated about the lose of my most valuable possession. The only thing I had left that meant anythin' to me.

But luckily it all worked out. For me anyway. Angel, not so much. Ilona, my close personal friend, and head of Wolfram & Hart in Rome. The lovely bird gave me 11 new leather jackets. Identical to the original in every way. So it was good for me. Then far as the mission gone. When we came back to Los Angeles. We found the head had been delivered to Angel's office with a note from the damn Immortal. He was clearly behind the whole thing. Just tryin' to get under my and Angel's skin. But he should have learned. Nothin' stops us. We keep on keepin' on. No matter the pain or heartache. We move forward. We don't let anyone or anything hold us down. No demons. No bombs. Nothin' will stop us from what's right... and doin' what has to be done. Cause we're heroes. And that's what heroes do.

Topic 375 - How do you act during a break-up? [23 Feb 2011|06:20pm]
[ mood | restless ]

How do you act during a break-up?

I get all broody. Move to Los Angeles. Become a private eye. No wait, that's Angel's thing. I'm a bit less with the broodin', and more with the drinkin'. So I drink. I drink allot.

Unfortunately, it takes crap loads of booze to get a vampire drunk. So unless I can get someone to pay the tab, I waste allot of cash on said liquor.

After I get past the whole bein' drunk part. I sober up. Feel all bad for myself. Try to get plastered again. Eventually things return to normal. Or as normal as things can be for a trouble prone creature of the night.

Which cliché rings true to you? [26 Jan 2011|11:05pm]
[ mood | working ]

Which cliché rings true to you?

Most writers try to avoid usin' clichés. They think that clichés are over-used and lackin' in original thought. And that the expressions have lost their meanin' or power. Such as dead as a door nail. It's been used so much, the sayin' has lost it's impact.

Yet I'm not one of those elitist writers. I like clichés. Like a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. It is used by many a romantic bloke to put into words how he feels. Even if a million others feel the same way, the sayin' is just as meaningful and true today, as it was centuries ago. Shakespeare was a master of coined words. The ability to create sayings that are hard to forget. And like the poet in me would say. If its good enough for old William Shakespeare, its good enough for me.

Anyway, back on topic. The best clichés capture what is true, and sums it up in a simple to understand way. Here are clichés that ring true to yours truly. Absolute power does corrupt absolutely. Actions do speak louder than words. All work and no play, does make Spike a dull boy. Alls fair in love and war. An idle mind is the devil's playground. And an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

So yeah, many a cliché rings true to me. Some are over-used. But if a sayin' isn't any good, then it will go the way of the dodo. But long as I'm around. I'll always use the occasional cliché, euphemism, figure of speech, or idiom. That's just the way I am. And that's the way I'm gonna stay. Cause like they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. And I'm not just sayin' it cause I came up with many of the clichés blokes use these days. Or maybe I am.
