A/N: Written for the seasonal_spuffy community on Live Journal. The challenge was “fairy tales,” and this story is (very) loosely based on the tale of Thomas the Rhymer. If you’re not familiar with the story, Thomas got taken off to fairyland, and after seven years was returned to the mortal word, unable to speak anything but the truth. Spike, poor guy, finds himself in the same position.
