FIC: Schoolgirl Fashion (Wes/Dawn, PG, 1/1)

For some reason I usually think other Dawn combinations (er, other than Xander/Dawn -- did I really have to clarify?) aren't something I can picture. But cheesygirl wanted some Wes/Dawn, and now I can picture it, damn it. 200 words.

See appropriate disclaimers here.

Schoolgirl Fashion

Wesley heard the knock at his office door but didn't look up from the text he'd been working on all morning. “Marie, if you could fetch me the Grosh’nik files -- oh, Dawn,” he said in surprise when she walked in and flung her shoulder bag on a chair.

“School got out early,” Dawn announced. “And you know, not that I mind having to finish high school in L.A., but do I have to do it in uniform? Kind of awkward to go shopping in Santa Monica with the schoolgirl look.”

He let his gaze drift over her knee-socks, her short, pleated skirt, her white blouse, and the cardigan thrown around her shoulders. “Well, I’m not sure about that,” he said. “I quite like seeing you dressed up that way.”

She rolled her eyes, but her sashay over to him was playful, teasing. "Um, Wes?” She came closer to him, and leaned against the massive oak desk, the movement swishing the hem of the skirt against her thighs. “I'm pretty sure it doesn't work if I'm, you know, an actual schoolgirl."

"Oh, I don't know," Wes murmured as he drew her onto his lap. "I believe it works very well."

I can totally see Dawn rockin' the naughty schoolgirl attitude. Now I want to know what happens next :) I'm picturing continued disagreement and maybe some discipline, but that could just be me.

Yes, Dawn has great capacity for naughtiness even in the mix of her dorkiness. I know, I kind of want to know what happens next too. *facepalm*

Thanks so much for reading -- you're sweeter than sweet.

And Angel all horrified and not-wanting-to-know, and SPIKE having to be kept absolutely in the dark, because whoa!
May. 1st, 2006 03:26 am (UTC)
Bwah! Oh, man, you do this far, far too well to leave us with just one glimpse of this pair!
May. 1st, 2006 03:27 am (UTC)
Hee, thank you! But I'm not supposed to be thinking of Wes/Dawn! *tries to hum something catchy*
May. 1st, 2006 03:28 am (UTC)
Hell, I'm not supposed to be thinking of Angel/Dawn!
May. 1st, 2006 03:29 am (UTC)
Ha, oh my god!

*puts fingers in ears and sings*
May. 1st, 2006 03:43 am (UTC)
Yes, there must be more!
May. 1st, 2006 03:45 am (UTC)
Enablers, every last one of you! Hee, thank you. I'm glad you liked!
May. 1st, 2006 03:53 am (UTC)
Yum! This was deliciously teasing, just like Dawn herself ;)

There should be more Wes/Dawn in the world!
May. 1st, 2006 11:18 am (UTC)
Thank you so very much! :)
May. 1st, 2006 04:15 am (UTC)

Hee! That is so cute! And I think you absolutely nailed both characters. Good work.

May. 1st, 2006 11:19 am (UTC)
That's wonderful to hear -- many thanks!
May. 1st, 2006 05:45 am (UTC)
Lovely start of some naughtiness there.
May. 1st, 2006 11:19 am (UTC)
Thank you, yay!
May. 1st, 2006 05:54 am (UTC)
yum! i love wes/dawn.
May. 1st, 2006 11:20 am (UTC)
Glad you liked! Thanks.
May. 1st, 2006 06:14 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that if there's a Wes/Dawn secret society I should have a membership card. Or something.
That was awesome. Close enough to character to be really, really naughty *g* Yumness.
May. 1st, 2006 11:21 am (UTC)
Who knew, but it does seem like the pairing has some very cool fans. :) So glad you liked this.
May. 1st, 2006 08:54 am (UTC)
Great Fun. Re the above comment - Just imagine the fallout when Spike does find out!

May. 1st, 2006 11:22 am (UTC)
Hee, I went to sleep imagining how in the world Dawn ended up in L.A. post-Chosen, and what Angel and Spike think is/isn't going on...

Thanks very much!

(This is the only shippy Dawn icon I've got. Oops.)

It's a shame weda doesn't get a lot of action, because Wes/Dawn is just plain FUN, darnit. Yay, you, for taking the plunge, and for doing it so well! *grin*
May. 1st, 2006 03:01 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I had no idea there was a community for the pairing, but maybe I'll go ahead and post a link to this ficlet there. Thanks for the heads up and the encouragement. :)
May. 1st, 2006 03:09 pm (UTC)
Okay, like I said last night - this is a pairing I've never thought about. But then, I sadly rarely think about Wes pairings. I wonder why that is? Do I have a Wes blockage?

Dawn, on the other hand, I can see rockin' with just about anyone because I'm naughty like that. (Although when at first you mentioned this I misunderstood it to be Dawn/Giles for a moment and had a momentary freak, so I guess I do have limits.)

Anyway, now that we've dispensed with talking about me - the "actual schoolgirl" line was hot.
May. 1st, 2006 07:50 pm (UTC)
I know what you mean! Wes is one of those people I see as the B-half to a pairing. So I'll happily think about Angel/Wes, or Xander/Wes, or Angel/Xander/Wes (OMG, does that threesome exist? How many rubies would I give someone to write it?), I would say "Hey, let's take Wes, and oh yeah, person B". Not initially, anyway. Even though...you know, maybe it's because in my view of him from the series, he's always so alone. He's the kind of being oddly isolated. Strangely, he's one of the characters whose arc fascinates me the most. Sooooo much change. But yeah, with romantic pairings, I don't go right to him in my mind.

HAHAHAHAHA! Dude. I can't write Giles with Dawn! I just...I can see why people do, I can start to wrap my head around the appeal, but no, no no! I can't even think about Giles/Willow or Giles/Buffy as an actual thing, so that explains the Giles/Dawn reluctance (if it's not working with Buffy as a daughter figure, her sister is just a place I can't go in my head).

Plus Giles only loves Xander. omghee! Xander gets everyone, consummate slut that he is in my worldview.

Glad you liked the schoolgirl line!

MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm. Dirtybadwrong.

More, please.
May. 1st, 2006 08:03 pm (UTC)
*beams* Thanks so much!
May. 1st, 2006 05:02 pm (UTC)
Oooh, this is very good! I'd never thought about Wes/Dawn but this is very convincing. The voices are perfect!

I love this description:
the movement swishing the hem of the skirt against her thighs.

May. 1st, 2006 08:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I'm glad the voices worked for you.

I may be, er, writing a little more Wes/Dawn, and for now her voice is sort of escaping me (in that she's not getting to talk much during the story) so we'll see if I end up posting it soon or letting it chill for a while.
May. 1st, 2006 07:40 pm (UTC)
This was fabulous.
There can never be enough Wes/Dawn fic.
May. 1st, 2006 08:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you, yay! It's a new pairing to me, so I'm excited to learn that other people really enjoy it.
May. 2nd, 2006 07:41 am (UTC)
I'm sure you're busy and you probably have a millions things you need to do, but...

can writing more Wes/Dawn fics be one of them?
May. 2nd, 2006 11:24 am (UTC)
Hee, and here I was about to send you to the next story, but it seems you'd already found it.

Maybe? We'll see how inspiration strikes. At any rate, I never thought I'd be writing it at all, so it's hard to predict. :)
May. 10th, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)

I love, love, love this pairing for all the reasons that are displayed so well in this ficlet. They're so deliciously wicked and snarky together! Loved this!
May. 10th, 2006 08:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! And oooh, neat icon. *admires*
