Summary:

William wrote poetry, but surely he didn't stop just because he was turned!

I'd like to see a fic telling the story of Spike's life through his poetry. 

You can add actual action and dialogue if you want, but the core of the fic has to be the poetry Spike writes throughout his very long existence. Since Spike was known to be a Bloody Awful Poet, the poems doesn't have to be very good, as long as they're fun and passionate.

Must  including poetry about:

  • His very first poem (because wee William surely wrote poetry)
  • Poor attempts at poetry for Cecily. (Bonus points if even more cringy than the one from Canon)
  • Being turned and waking up in a coffin
  • Enjoying bloodshed and fighting. (The bloodier the better)
  • Hating Angelus
  • His fights with the two Slayers he killed
  • Buffy (when he wanted to kill her)
  • Being chipped
  • Falling in love with Buffy
  • Buffy dying
  • Getting a soul

Can include poems about:

  • His mother
  • The gem of Amara
  • His fake engagement in Something Blue
  • Harmony
  • Dru
  • Shagging Buffy
  • Buffy breaking up
  • Dawn
  • Joyce dying
  • Fantasies about killing Riley
  • Buffy kissing him in Intervention
  • Blooming onions
  • Whiskey
  • Punk music
  • His duster
  • The taste of pigs blood compared to human blood
  • Seeing Red - bathroom scene
  • Closing the Hellmouth
  • Haunting Angel in W&H
  • Meeting Buffy again post series
  • ...

Have funwrite
