Love it! I really like scenes that get a little sad at first, so it's even more emotional when it gets better, and this does that so well with Demon getting tangled up in his head and Buffy and William bringing him back to the present. I love how Demon and William can understand each other so easily, and how they look after each other, how Demon lets his human side take care of him. And how they all acknowledge the hurt of the past, but that it's behind them and they love each other and are doing better and are happy now. And on a less serious note, 'Tits!' as a single paragraph, and 'Pussy, now' always make me laugh. Demon is easily pleased <3[Report This]
I love this scene so so much! It's so sweet, I love seeing how the two sides of Spike both love Buffy in different ways but just as strongly, and how she loves both sides of him. Buffy had the impression she’d just fixed something that’d been broken for a very long time, gosh that's such a great line, I'm so glad she was able to heal what was such an old hurt for William. And I love Demon's shaky, marker-pen 'I LOVE YOU' so much, that's always the most emotional part for me, the fact that he may not understand the writing itself but he understands what it means and he wants to give that to her. I love all the ways Demon expresses love without being able to talk, like in ToD when he puts his or Buffy's hands over his heart. They're all just so sweet, I love them, I love how you write them, and this is such a wonderful fic <3[Report This]
Love this! I love Demon so much, he's so sweet! It's really cool to see him at this point in time, worrying about biting Buffy, knowing that in the next chapter of ToD he gets to. And I'm always so soft for Demon calling William 'his human', I love how much they genuinely care about each other. <3[Report This]
I really, really, really love the POV in this one. I got choked up a few times. Not often one chapter can make me both lusty and verklempt!
I majorly headcanon that Spike's demon is just as in love with Buffy as any other part of him, it's just not good at this whole humaning thing. It didn't understand Buffy's actions in S6 at all, things got messy, and it tried to fix everything. I loved ToD and these shorts because I was able to explore all that and have Buffy and all of Spike's parts (hee!) work things out. And it's just fun to write from Demon's perspective! ;-)
Ohhhhh! *claps hands excitedly*
I just wandered over from AO3 and stumbled upon this bit of delightfulness! Hurray! 👏👏👏
These are all shoved into some "Spuffy one-shots" thing on AO3, mostly so I'd have an accurate word count, lol. I'm glad you found them!
I hadn’t delved into that yet - is there anything else in there?
Great chapter hope to see the next part someday or just to learn what would have happened next.
I’m glad you enjoyed! I’m not sure how I never finished this one, but past me really should have!!
I don't think I'll ever not want more of this 'verse. So glad I stumbled back upon ToD, I was really needing some fluff.
If you're ever feeling like writing another oneshot for this, I'd like to humbly request some stuff in the 6 weeks between Spike being put back together and finding out Buffy's pregnant. Her reassuring him that she still loves him makes me waaaaay too happy XD
I had the hardest time leaving this verse! They're my favs for sure! And Buffy letting Spike know he's all kinds of loved is cerainly one of those things there can never be too many stories of! :-D
Hahah, I love this chapter because it ties back to the line “I’ve done things with you I can’t spell”, which always makes me wonder, because I too feel like William is an excellent speller.
It was totally Gort and i's headcanon that he totally is! I'm so glad you're enjoying the craziness ;-) (that line left me wondering what the hell he wouldn't be able to spell, lol)
Adorable!! What a lovely surprise. ^^ Spike in a lion costume is something I didn't know I needed. And it was nice to be so in sync with Buffy's reaction to "defenseless".
Thank you! :)
He'd be an adorable lion! (Says Buffy, lol) And Spike totally knows Buffy is the opposite of defenseless, lol. Thanks for the read and review!
I love the picture you painted of Spike vamped out in his lion costume! Hehehe That’s too perfect!
He'd be adorable and he'd absolutely hate it! Thank you for reading and reviewing!
I love this happy domestic scene.
Spike is a fabulous daddy and I can so easily see him dressing as anything his family asked! He'd be a perfect lion. He already has that big cat swagger.
Yup a whip of many uses (and he and "Wonder Woman" can switch off using it. She'll have him panting out truths in no time LOL.
Tod is adorable! I love that he's the lion tamer. Actually Buffy tamed this particular lion but Tod sealed the deal.
Spike being bitey anywhere is hot so I think the prompt is more than perfect LOL.
Ahhh the missing Butterfingers (I laughed that Buffy, who was clearly looking to swipe a few for herself, and Spike both have the same taste in Halloween candy).
I love picturing them as a happy family like this. Just adorable!
I'm terrible at letting this verse go! I love them all too much!
Spike would argue he's not a tame lion...but who's he trying to kid?
Buffy probably has a lasso for that Wonder Woman costume and now they're all set, lol.
Thank you so much for reading and reviewing this bit of fluff!
That was such a good picture of Buffy on the banner, very nice.
This is so sweet, the things yo do for your children. I can picture it that little boy in costume and Spike as a lion. I can also picturing him being the most miserable lion ever, whining about it to Buffy. Also lovely the way Willow prepared Tod with things to say.
A Wonder Woman costume, would be bad to just use it there, costumes can be useful all night long. Spike is thinking ahead with the whip too.
The banner was all Kathleen and she did an amazing job ;-)
Poor Spike, lol, but he loves it even if he's pouting.
And Willow is already teaching Tod how to protest, lol.
I'd bet Wonder Woman's costume comes with a lasso ;-)
Thank you for the read and review!
Aww, a lovely story to end Doomlets. I thought my eyes were deciving me when I saw your update.
Tod lifted one and peeked under it. “Are you going to give Daddy whiskers and a black nose?”
“He’s going to have a black eye if he’s not careful,” Lol! Poor Spike!
I thoroughly enjoyed this.
It's been marked complete for a bit, but this story was determined to happen for Halloween. I didn't think I was going to get any Spuffy prompts and it was actually an AoS person who asked, probably just to be nice, and then I gave her something that doesn't make sense if you haven't read the 60K fic and 9 other one-shots. Oops.
Spike might not mind Buffy taking a swing at him, lol, since she'd probably pull her punch now. (Unless he eats every last Butterfinger)
Thank you for the read and review!
Aw, so good to have another Spike is a soppy dad extension to ToD! This is just so gloriously domestic... I'm sure Spike is a very sexy lion and Buffy will have fun with the the whip later...
Spike snarled, and the vibrations against her tummy tickled, and she laughed more, weakly hitting his back. He looked up at her and grinned before licking his lips. “I could eat you all up, luv, starting right here.” I'd volunteer to be eaten ;D
What are you going to be, mum?” Tod asked from beside her as she grabbed Spike’s chin and ignored the way he curled his tongue as she drew whiskers on his cheeks. “She’s going to be the same thing she is every year,” Spike said. “The most amazing woman ever.” Smooth Spike, very smooth...
A candy wrapper hit her shoulder, and she and Spike turned to glare at Tod. "No kissing lions.” Oh the joys of parenting, best contraceptive ever (apart from jealous dogs...)
Nice to see you back albeit briefly Sun.
I can't seem to let these three (sort of four?) go, lol.
Maybe Buffy has a lasso with that Wonder Woman costume ;-)
Hee! Spike knows what he's angling for with the lines!
Poor Tod's put out they're not paying attention to him, lol.
I'm glad you enjoyed and thank you for the read and review!
The original ToD is one of my absolute faves fic-wise... Mainly because I'm in love with Demon! Also I'm totally with Buffy that William/Demon action is very hot ;D
Thank you for the ToD update! My heart got all fluttery. This was super cute. Spike would make a really great lion.
I'm slightly worried about my subconscious, lol, but he would make a great lion and if there's anyone who could tame him it'd be Buffy and Tod! Thanks for the read and review!
Aw! It made me very happy to see this and much more to read it. I miss you! Thank you for this wonderfully sweet addition to Doomlets!
i'm so glad you enjoyed! I hope you're feeling better soon! :-D
"I don’t think I’m equipped to deal with sparkly vampires."
Haha. Hahaha. Who is? Not Spuffy fans.
Poor Buffy. She's going to be finding glitter in places you don't want glitter for AGES, lol.
This is so sweet. And bite-masturbation...what an interesting concept, makes total sense.
I think I took the idea from Kresley Cole? But it worked well with the dynamic I had going on here! Thank you for reading and reviewing!
