Title: By Their Fruits Shall Ye Know Them
Fandom: BtVS
Summary: After Faith killed Alan Finch, Buffy and Giles are discussing it in his office. What Wesley, outside in the library, is thinking.

Note: Written for a prompt at Open on Sunday: enemy
Word Count: 100

The circulation desk stood of to his left, stark and solid. But beyond it the office where the Slayer, no, where his Slayer, was speaking with Mr. Giles, that office seemed immeasurably distant, even though Wesley could hear each word quite distinctly.

Mr. Giles was speaking treason. Duty required that he report Faith. He knew that. He had just said... He had just said he was planning on keeping it from the Council.

Well, Wesley Wyndham-Price knew his duty to the Council even if Mr. Giles no longer did. By their fruits shall ye know them. Wesley recognized his enemy.

Thanks. I had to look it up. I wanted the idea of something Biblically and originally had "By their deeds shall ye know them." but then verucasalt used actual scripture in her story and I felt I had to look up an actual quote!

This is so totally dork Wes - and I love him because somewhere in there badass Wes is struggling to be born! So scared, he still needs the safety of rules and still hopes to impress daddy dearest.

Yours is the most kickass accurate description of Wes I've ever seen! ;-)

I love his arc damn near as much as Spike's. Though I am sure I have far more Wes in me than Spike.

*laughs* Yeah, I'm probably more Wes-like myself.

Oh, Wesley... you drank the Kool-Aid from the Mothership. Unfortunately, it takes a couple years to wear off.

Perfect drabble is perfect!
