Title: Alone Time
Author: Shona aka Mara
Rating: PG
Disclaimers: Not mine, never will be. Joss said I/we could play here, honest!
Characters: Faith
Notes: Set at the end of Enemies. Faith knows she's been played. (1st person)

She turned on a dime. Honestly, I never thought the chains would hold her - god knows I'ddda been out of them in a split second, and isn't she s'posed to be better than me? But this? I didn't see coming.

Angelus… Angel. I thought I could use him. I thought…

I thought I was better. But she played me. *They* played me.

She didn't break the chains. He was never mine. 'Only reason I wanted him was cause'a her. He's hers. Always will be. I hate that it makes me weaker, but it does.

And now I've lost.

I'm alone.

I really worry sometimes that when I switch my mind to that "must write Faith" mode I can write this kind of thing so quickly. As Cordy would no doubt say "Over-identify much?".

Faith... gotta love her.

and not at all as part of my *must write something each day in Decmber* phase...

This is true. Writing Faith can be very cathartic. Things I want to do/say but cant, Faith can. It's a symbiotic relationship really

Nice Faith pain. Anguish, anger and betrayal all mixing together in the complex mix that is Faith.

You've just summed up all the reasons why I adore Faith as a character. She's so complex, everything she encounters is a double-edged sword, and everything seems to cut deep.

Thank you!

You do write her well (should I say scarily well...?)

A very effective little piece.
