Daily(ish) Drabble(ish) #9 - The Long Term Plan, Spike/Xander
First commenter on the day's drabble(ish) gets to provide pairing and prompt for the next one. You can choose from Spike/Xander, John/Rodney and Sam/Dean or choose one of them as a solo character. Give me a word, or mood, or something to think on and I'll see what I can do. I may expand the possible selection if this works and I actually get my mojo firing on all cylinders. (Nobody gets two drabbles in a row. If you get one today, you don't get to have one tomorrow, even if your comment is up first.)

Oh, very nice.
I liked it very much, and I liked how you showed how long term the relationship has been. Very nice.

Thank you!

I love giving them a 'long term' to play in. :D

A lightning flash of a glance showed Xander that, yes, Spike was indeed wearing his 'why for art thou rejecting me?' expression.

Bwahahaha! What a perfect description of that pout. *g*

That's brilliant, love. Not only well characterised, but witty and very clever. I'm so looking forward to reading more.

Thank you, darlin'!

I love the idea of them a bit older, a bit wiser, and just as much in love and batshit crazy as they were when they got together. :D
