 Tell Me a Story

[ A ]

Long ago, in Kentucky, I, a boy, stood
By a dirt road, in first dark, and heard
The great geese hoot northward.

I could not see them, there being no moon
And the stars sparse. I heard them.

I did not know what was happening in my heart.

It was the season before the elderberry blooms,
Therefore they were going north.

The sound was passing northward.

 

[ B ]

Tell me a story.

In this century, and moment, of mania,
Tell me a story.

Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.

The name of the story will be Time,
But you must not pronounce its name.

Tell me a story of deep delight.

—Robert Penn Warren

Summary: Buffy’s sweet, mostly. If it weren’t for the other TA in her Intro Psych class, she would totally be enjoying the college experience. Spike’s completely salty. So far, he hasn’t been able to convince a certain self-righteous freshman that dating Riley Finn is a terrible idea. What happens when an impossible blonde meets an intractable asshole? Lesson the First: you can’t spell ‘lust’ without ‘UST’.

Summary: What happens when the Initiative chips not one but two vampires and their interest in them is less military and more pastry? Crack-fic that starts with "Pangs," works its way through every dessert-based innuendo, and affects literally everyone in a variety of smutty, calorie-filled ways, of course! Warning: you will want to have dessert on hand before you start reading; ideally, your dessert will be cherry pie with whipped cream on top.
