BtVS – Three First Kisses
a. Pre-Series – Angelus/William (R-ish)
In the past few months, he’s been murdered and turned, raped repeatedly by both the ladies and that brute, Angelus, in a show of who’s got the power. It most certainly doesn’t lie with William. Just a convenient piece of flesh to vent their desires upon.
So the first time it happens, William is stunned. In an uncharacteristically gentle display, Angelus brushes his lips with his own, tongue softly seeking entrance to the cool cavern of his mouth. Quick as that, William’s heart imprints.
Shown just the teensiest crumb of affection, and the boy is lost, body and missing soul.
b. Season 3 – Giles/Wesley
Acting as chaperone for his Slayer’s prom leaves Giles with mixed emotions. He’s proud of her. Buffy’s already survived her own death, defeated the Master, apparently tamed the worst part of the Scourge of Europe, and been given a moment of peer recognition.
Wesley, on the other hand, is still nattering on about that airheaded bint, Cordelia. Should he, could he, would she mind… enough!
Giles grabs him around the back of his neck and kisses him hard on the lips, in full view of the student body. Guess there’s a sure fire way to shut him up after all.
c. Season 7 – Spike/Xander
Spike cowers in Harris’ closet, letting the sounds and images of his past sins buffet him in relative privacy. It’s like a too-vivid Technicolor movie with the sound cranked up
He knows he screams out in his sleep. Many nights he awakens in Xander’s arms, terrified out of his wits. They never speak of it aloud, but many nights the man’s strong arms are all that keep Spike from flying apart.
One night, Xander kisses him. Nothing more than a soft glide of lips meant to soothe.
It’s the first night Spike sleeps straight through; no nightmares disturb his slumber.
