Story Notes: I got this idea in my head while writing my first drabble story so ahem, without further ado, here is another.
I did 100 word drabbles for To Still Be Wanting You and pivoted to just under 1k drabbles for this fic. It still allowed me to practice being more succinct in my storytelling, but yeah, I guess I live for the extremes
Banner by me.
Betas: ClowniestLivEver, Lady Emma, Jws1993
Written using 6 prompts from board one (ch 1-3, 5-7) and one prompt from board two (ch 4). I uh was originally only gonna do five from board one but as always, the story exploded.

I researched this hotel (which actually exists) and found out breakfast currently costs 50€ PER PERSON. Which I could not live with, so I decided it was complimentary for Spuffy, lol. No one should have to pay that much for breakfast.

Unbeta’ed because I have no patience when it comes to drabbles.

Prompt: Buffy’s Big Bloody Debut

At first, I was annoyed that the Munich Opera House's online history (to check which opera was being put on when) only goes back to 2001. Until I came up with an entirely different activity for Spuffy to engage in at the opera, lol. (No, not that. I know what you're thinking.)

Thanks once again to Jws1993 for reading this over.

Prompt: It Must Be Tuesday
