Ahh, so the warm, rich scent of Slayer's blood was the reason for the hand trail down his chest to prominently frame his bulge. Looks like that headache might be more caused by his inability to get all parts of himself in alignment. Demon wants to fuck her. William wants to write sonnets. Spike fluctuates between the two and knowing it is damn wrong. Would give anyone a headache.
Poor guy! He's rather confused ;-) Thank you so much for the read and review!
Oo, I can't believe I missed this gem! Poor, mixed up Spike Love the struggle between William and demon - both in obvious favor of doing all sorts of things that are decidedly not killing Buffy.
Spike's always a bit of a mess over the girl, lol. I think William and Demon (er, William and the demon ;-) aren't going to let Spike be at peace on this one ever again!
Thank you for the read and review!
That was hilarious and oddly disturbing. Very well written either way. I love the idea of William and the demon in his head all of the time. Brilliant. Sorry, we didn't have a menstruating slayer smilie so that will have to do.
Poor Spike, he's already so twisted around over her! (I might have borrowed William and Demon from Thing of Doom for a cameo here).
Lol, poor dirty old Spike. Great one- shot. Its always very amusing to see Spike's man and demon sides both agree with each other when it comes to Buffy. Thanks for sharing with us!
He's totally a goner already! (and of course I see William and Demon dragging poor Spike kicking and screaming where they want him to go, lol ;-)
Thanks for the read and review!
"as his demon half bent the Slayer over the same desk to shag the hell out her. William, oddly enough, seemed just fine with that, even as the demon’s hips churned, coating its prick and the girl’s thighs with her dark blood."
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed my little tiny bit of craziness to mark the day!
What a PERFECT fic! :D I love this interpretation of School Hard so much! I also love the basically!canon idea that Buffy was on her period during the episode - no wonder Spike ended up obsessed. ;)
The imagery is vivid, just like in the episode, and I LOVE it! I also love the back and forth between the William and Demon sides - they're both done for at this point. XD Also, I love how, together, they're falling for all aspects of Buffy.
...even as the demon’s hips churned, coating its prick and the girl’s thighs with her dark blood. < This line stands out to me. Menstruation fics often clean up the mess or keep it hidden, whereas you're letting it stand out to the viewer. It's a very strong image and I love it.
She could be our heaven. <He's a goner! A goner in the best possible way. Aww, Spike, you're too sweet... but it is for your own good in the end. ;)
Wonderful fic! Amazing work fitting it writing the story into your schedule - thank you for it! It's an automatic fave! :D
I really get a kick of thinking that all his earliest memories of her are steeped in the scent of her blood. I might be weird...
Poor Spike doesn't know what to do with himself, since most of his brain has decided she's the bee's knees...
With the menstruation I wanted to do the opposite of the episode and instead of being coy, bring it right out in the open. He's a damn vampire, it's blood, I don't think he's going to mind where it's coming from ;-)
His mind made itself up without him! Again! Damn it!
Thank you! I was very glad to be able to come up with a last minute thing to mark the day!
I will never turn down an opportunity to read more William and Demon antics. I love how tender Spike is with Dru here, even while he's completely in the throes of a Buffy-crisis! He's totally a goner. Thanks for sharing your amazing brain with us :)
I seriously can't get rid of them. They live in my brain and demand to be written about, lol. I'm glad you caught that detail, he takes care of those he loves, even when he's feeling like he's being turned upside down and inside out.
Thank you for putting up with all my craziness!
This is delicious. Excellent Spike characterization, and the sexiness feels like it fits right into canon. Hot and sweet and a yummy harbinger of Spuffy to Come. thank you!
I might be a little biased but I can only see them as being on a collision course! Thank you so much for the read and review!
Always love Spike being aware of the attraction early. He did subconsciously ... I fully believe that.
Yeah good thing that Dru was asleep because his head wouldn't be the only thing hurting.
Yeah her being mid cycle would drive vampires wild. Of course they never mentioned that at all. I can see both Spike's demon and his human side being already more than a little in love with Buffy (completely in lust).
I imagine the attraction (for both of them) was swirling beneath the surface long before either of them was ready for it.
I'm surprised the series, which obliquely references menstruation in this episode...never does so again. Think of all the things they did approach...but menstruation was just a bridge too far even though half of the population has had to deal with it frequently :(
How are you doing all this writing? You're like on fire right now.
It was the perfect length for me to read while I am wasting time trying to write a speech. I have so many feels about School Hard! It really does feel magical like you describe here... Spike is blown away by her. I love to watch it.
I love the physically of the episode, both Spike and Buffy's and Angel spends most of his time disappearing and being useless. And neither of them was ever the same afterward!
Ooooh... Poor Spike. Yeah, he's already smitten, and there isn't a prayer. Not a prayer. He'll never get back on track, not with this one. You can deal with her monthlies... daily. If she'd give you half a chance...
Yeah. You should have killed her faster, Spike. It's already too late now.
He's a goner for sure!
Thank you for the read and review Sigyn!
Spike was indeed never the same after seeing Buffy. She did wake the William part of him.
I liked the little tenderness we saw with Dru, even as evil he could be very sweet.
I think he genuinely loved Dru (and Dru him, just that she was terrible at showing it in the ways he needed her to), but the poor guy was a goner from the moment he laid eyes on Buffy!
Lovely little drop into School Hard canon... Really like Spike trying to keep control of both his human and demon sides so unsuccessfully... And William colluding with Demon. That'd escalated fast all right.
I don't Spike has ever had that much control where Buffy is concerned, certainly not over what his subconscious thought of her! And he was a goner from when he first laid eyes on her!
Yes, it's VERY likely she was.... Xander going Buffy's purse and readily finds a tampon, and then Spike saying, "Fe, fi, fo fum, I smell the blood of a nice ripe...girl."
They do everything but explicitly say it.
