La Femme Nikita  
The original is on IFC right now. I think I once drew a comparison between LFN and BtVS--like, what if the Watcher Council had been a darker institution like Section and slayers were handled like new recruits--they either measured up faster or were killed to make way for a new one.

I have an amazing mental ability to slot Spike into any ingenue role, so I like to imagine him as Nikita in the original movie, a sociopath that they're trying to re-style into a passable person (and assassin). Spike just needs careful handling is all I'm saying. Some love and attention, a gun and a leash. Yep.

I love your brain.

Also, the original LFN. Especially the scene where she bites the guy's ear off and does the scarecrow dance. Good times.

And what about the part where she can't figure out what to buy in the supermarket, so she follows that other woman around and buys, like, ten of whatever she puts in her cart? That's Spike trying to figure out how to be human again! Hee.

Yes, yes, I amuse me. *g*

God. Drabble?

If you don't, I'll spam LJ with Vamp!Xander.

Well, I'll do that anyway. So, no pressure.

Well, if I weren't working on my spander ficathon assignment...hey, did you sign up, by the way? ::gives you a stern look::

My life is a spander ficathon. I don't really see the need to make it official, you know?

Oh, you know, that cute mensch of a cashier--sweet as hell--that Nikita hooks up with?

Dude, after the movie, there were factoids and one said, "Sadam Hussein had a league of belly-dancer assassins." Or maybe "legion." Either way. Hee.

Yeah, and the CIA at one point hatched a plot to assassinate Castro via an exploding conch shell. No joke. Harper's had a list.

Funny, but sad.

Oh my god that is brilliant! Someone should write it... *grin*

Someone should! Someone should really just get out a pencil and--

::is distracted by your Krycek icon::

--and stab that cigarette-smoking bastard in the eye with it!

...oh wait.

You know what I realized, while watching an episode of the Hercules cartoon, no less? One of my biggest kinks is when a man is horribly injured (though not with massive, easily-seen wounds), and is sitting half-slumped against a wall. He looks totally asleep, which worries the person looking at him because there would be nothing to indicate the slow slip from unconsciousness to death. The strong male body is left helpless and vulnerable, and the only thing to be done by the observer is worry and study the face for any sign of movement.

I had to share this kink with someone, and I thought you'd appreciate it. ;)

Did you ever watch the USA series of LFN? *Very* different from the movie, but fantastic.

One of my daughter's favorite fanfics was a buffy/nikita crossover. I believe it's called From Slayer to Killer, and takes place roughly 4th season. I thought it was decent but didn't really get a lot of it since I've never seen nikita. And it does end up being buffy/spike.
