There’s a little bit of dialogue from Grave in this, however it is just a little bit – mainly because I’ve never really liked the scripting in that episode, so I decided to elbow Joss aside for a bit and write my own dialogue! See, megalomania has well and truly set in. I’m up to my knees in white cats now….

Also, bit of a self pimp. I did an angsty little post Dirty Girls ficlet earlier in the week which was nothing to do with tamingthemuse. You can find Seeing Silence under the nifty link.

Anyway, back to Memento Mori. This is a shorty this week, but it needs to be done, to get to the point of the story. What do you mean, there needs to be a point…

Umm, I've started another series. This bunny started nibbling about 9 months ago after I reread [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs wonderful Revelations and I had a kind of tangential thought. Ever since then there have been bits and pieces scattered across my hard drive, but none of them made much sense - and maybe they still don't! Anyway, here's the prologue which is very, very short. Later bits should be longer!

A/N - Jan 2012
I wrote that short intro nearly 5 years ago and a lot of fic has gone under the bridge since then. In Jan 2012 I decided to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies [livejournal.com profile] feedbackathon, and Memento Mori was one of the stories I submitted. I was curious to see how it would stand up to reading five years on, and also by some folk who didn’t read it as a WiP, and who weren’t my normal Flist readers. It’s been a really interesting experience, to get some really wonderful comments and also to get some very insightful concrit, which helped me pinpoint some of the things that nagged at the back of my head, but I couldn’t put my finger on – most specifically on occasion having Xander use words that are more a reflection of my vocabulary, rather than his. This was the first story where I had to plot and carry my own narrative, instead of doing a ‘season’ rewrite where all the narrative scaffolding is already in place, so revisiting the story and getting new feedback was a really good experience and it reminded me why I’m very fond of this story.

Anyway, commercial over – on with the story - I hope you enjoy...
