Party Drabbles For open_on_sunday 02/06/05 - #1-3

Drabble Challenge #98

Since it is the Superbowl, Mardi Gras, etc, let's combine a few of the suggestions and go with:

PARTY

Cross posted to open_on_sunday and my regular journal.


BtVS – Early Season 6 – Spike/Buffy

1. Tell-Tale Heart

The warning signals are flashing loud and clear. Less patience, more emotionally closed off… a sure harbinger of an oncoming apocalypse, or Buffy’s birthday. Something needs to be done to bleed off the building pressure, and her friends are oblivious.

At Spike’s request, she stops by his crypt after patrol. Dozens of lit candles greet her, warmly flickering. Pink paper hearts and rose petals lie at her feet. She finds a bag of Hershey’s Hugs and a note on the sarcophagus.

Party for one, Slayer. Guaranteed stress free.

He waits in the lower level, hoping she’ll choose to join him.


BtVS – Season 6 – Older and Far Away – Spike/Buffy-ish

2. Outside-In

Food, music, company – what more can anyone ask for from a party? Well, there is the fact that Niblet’s bitchin’ about people wanting to leave. And droopy boy’s ‘date’ for the Slayer. What’s his name? Richard? A more boring git can’t be found, except for the Grand Poof, but he isn’t here. Wasn’t invited. Technically, neither was Spike, but since when has that ever stopped him?

It’s not so bad bein’ on the inside for a change. A little teasing, a game of cards or twenty, and if Buffy looks at his bruised face and cringes? So much the better.


BtVS – Season 5 – Spike, Joyce

3. Mother Love

He’s had access to the Slayer’s house for nearly a handful of years. Rather a remarkable thing for a vampire – unsouled, anyway. And how does he spend his time? Does he skulk through the house, searching for a way to do her in? No, instead he sits in the kitchen with her mother, planning her 21st birthday party.

Joyce reminds him of his own mother. Nothing but the best for her child. While Anne’s preparations were never so elaborate, they were crafted with just as much love. If only…

Bugger it. At least she’d save him a piece of cake.

I love writing Spike's POV. Glad you thought I pulled him off well. **rereads words and thinks about rephrasing**

I tried to say before how much I liked these but LJ wouldn't let me. The Spike POV is excellent.
