Summary: A sketchy Christmas in the Inkverse.
Be warned: this is a shamelessly sinful corruption of my favourite Christmas poem. I'll never hear it the same way again *blushes*
And there are pictures. If smutty art's not your thing, please run.

Response to a challenge by OffYourBird: ‘The Two Ghosts of Wolfram and Hart’.
“Spike tells Buffy to leave him in Chosen but, this time, she doesn't... and out pop two ghosts in Angel's office nineteen days later. How does Buffy being in W&H as ghost #2 affect AtS season 5? What kind of shenanigans does our ghost duo get up to? ...Angsty, fluffy, smutty (answering the question of if ghosts can touch each other!) - whatever genre you like, so long as it has a happy Spuffy end.”

Probably heading into the territory of melancholic despair at some stage, be warned. But happy ending guaranteed! It's in the challenge requirements after all ;)
Spoilers through AtS S5.
Bihaldan is Old English - 'to hold', or to keep/occupy/conceal/rescue/retain. And is also the origin of 'behold' - to see, to look at, or to instruct someone to look at.

But as Joss said on writing S12, "And then they said, "You have four issues," and it was like "Ohhhh. That's all the time we have." So we dealt with a lot of things in small panels, and I don't know if I fit it all in..."
He didn't, but that's cool, because I've filled in the gaps for him ;)
