So this popped up in my random story feed, and now I can't stop laughing. You painted a very clear picture here, and it is just playing out on a loop in my head.There's no reasoning with a genuinely phobic person, lol.
This, though, did my heart good: She knows Spike well enough to be able to differentiate between the types of swearing: there’s angry swearing, of course, but there’s also terrified swearing, excited swearing, throes-of-ecstasy swearing, and trying-to-be-cool swearing. Proof that they have made it through and come out on the other side. Buffy *sees* him. He matters enough to her that she *knows* him.
Thanks for brightening my morning![Report This]
I think I have seen this promt on tumblr. Oh my goodness this is so amazing! I love her description of his different swearing as sounds totally like Spike. I love her comment about Fort the Bloody and him saying it’s her duty to slay the spider.
Aww, thank you so much! This was a lot of fun to write, glad you liked it.
AWWWW CUTE!!! It was nice. Poor spider though. I mean, I used to be terrified of them but I got over my fear. This was a nice fic. Short but again cute! Thanks for sharing it!
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed :)
I adore this little tid-bit!
Fort the Bloody? The fact that Buffy has more than enough shoes to make a fort? I LOVE IT ALL!
And OF COURSE Buffy would be the one to kill the spiders ;-)
Aww, thank you!!
LOL Yeah even the Big Bad has to have his phobias. Spiders are useful but can be nasty buggers (I have the literal scars to prove it)...there is no reasoning with them.
Thank you for the laugh. Very cute story.
Haha! Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed :)
Well, now I'm just picturing Spike in his crypt scrambling up on the sarcophagus anytime he spots a spider, holding a candelabra in defense as he whirls in circles. Then Clem walks in, sees this and says, "Spider again?" At Spike's furious nodding and pointing, Clem finds the spider and delicately steps on it. Cool mein back in place, Spike jumps down from the sarcophagus. "Right. Back to business then."
Okay, I'm done now.
This was completely delightful. I love that Buffy has *that* many shoes, and that she knows exactly how to differentiate between Spike's types of swearing. That's love right there
I love that! And you know Harmony totally had to kill them before she moved out.
I'm so glad you enjoyed and thanks for reviewing.
