After reading wisteria_'s thread about the most hated words in fanfic, that being new to the craft, I should take copious notes; write down each and every hated word and vow NEVER to use them, ever again, so that my fics will be read and enjoyed by one and all.
Turns out, the only words left to be used were:
Buffy and Spike Spike and Angel William/Angelus
as these are my pairings of choice. **pouts** Makes for a damned short story, but at least it'll be to the point.
