Xander in Oz: Shanks and Prags and Inmates, Oh My!
I do not own Buffy the Vampire Slayer (holla, Joss and Fox!) nor Oz (HBO and some other folks). Special Note:
I used to watch Oz in high school and recently found some dvds and began to re-watch them. Damn, it is one of the most disturbing but well-acted and plotted shows ever created. So this fic is set in the Oz universe and it will be disturbing. You have been warned. If you don’t know the series you may want to check out its wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oz_%28TV_series%29 or this: http://www.tv.com/oz/show/108/summary.html?tag=page_nav;main Word Count:
The judge’s gavel hits the table so hard that the vibrations run through Xander’s body. Or maybe that’s just his body shuddering in fear. Handcuffs are clasped onto him; they encircle his wrist protectively, like a lover. Except they are to protect them
from him, and not the other way around.
He can hear the whispers of those around him, especially the reporters. “One charge of kidnapping in the first degree, one account of manslaughter in the first degree, and one account of assaulting an officer. Sentenced to Oswald State Correctional Facility for seventy-five years, out for parole in fifty.”

Also, this is my first attempt at 100 word drabbles. It's a bit of a challenge I created for myself since I'm so damn wordy. hee.
