The Declaration

"Oh, yeah, Spike, yeah! Like that! Harder... faster... just... yesssssss!"

Xander's orgasm removed any and all control he had over his brain and mouth and they immediately took advantage of the freedom, even as he slipped into a post-coital daze.

"Love that. What you do to me. Love it. Love... you. LoveyousomuchSpikeso..."

Spike was still frozen in place, arms braced on either side of Xander's head and slowly softening cock still buried deep within sleep-relaxed muscles, when Xander's eyes fluttered open a little while later.

"Spike? You okay? You look kinda freaked."

"You... You said..."


"I... Oh. I did, didn't I? Do, even. I mean... I do. Love you. Didn't mean to say it. Not now. Not yet. Didn't know how... or even if... But, yeah, I do. Love you." Deep breath. "I love you, Spike."



Worried by the continued silence, Xander moved, one hand reaching up to brush a thumb over laxly parted lips and then further, combing through tousled white-blond curls.


"You... You said..."

"Yeah, I did. So...?"

"You... love me?"

"Yes, Spike. Xander Harris loves William the Bloody. And now he's wondering how Mr the Bloody feels about him...?"

"Still here, aint I? Soppy git."

The Confession

"Um... Guys, there's something I... We... Um... Yeah, okay. Deep breath, and just... out with it. No stalling. No beating about the bush. Enough of the pre- whatever... varication! Prevarication. That thing I'm not doing because...because that would be silly. And irritating. And I so don't want to..."


"Spike! I thought you were in the car."

"I was. For twenty minutes. Decided I'd better come and see if you'd gotten lost or something."

"No! No, I'm just... uh..."

"Trying to figure out how to tell them you're shagging the undead?"

"No! Just... Yeah."

"Kiss me. They'll figure it out."

The Reaction

"Good Lord!"

"Oh, Goddess, Xander, what are you doing?"

"Willow, is this another one of your spells? Should I stake Spike?"

Tara smiles, content to watch the Scoobies watching Xander as he makes a valiant attempt at removing Spike's tonsils with his tongue. Hands wander, pet and grasp, and words are lost. The room falls silent except for muffled groans and heartfelt whimpers. None of the impromptu audience makes a sound.

Eventually Xander has to breath so Spike pulls back, and glances round the room in gleeful delight.

"He's mine. I'm his. We've been shagging now for weeks. Any questions?"

Great drabbles. I really love that line, you should make you an icon with that. It's too good!
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 11th, 2004 11:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I might just do that. *g*
Sammoimoietmoi on December 11th, 2004 11:39 pm (UTC)
Cute! And all of their reactions are so real!
I really have a thing for this "removing Spike's tonsils with his tongue". lol I love this expression!
"He's mine. I'm his. We've been shagging now for weeks. Any questions?"
Oh, yeah! Is there a video? :D
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 11th, 2004 11:51 pm (UTC)
I love this expression!

Hee! Thanks. I figured it would have to be Xander doing to Spike, because otherwise the Scoobies would be sure that Xander was being forced into something. ;o)

Oh, yeah! Is there a video? :D

Oh, I wish! *g*

LMAO Loved these!

I can't even pick anything to quote, or I'd be cutting and pasting the entire post. LOL This line though, was definitely the best:

"He's mine. I'm his. We've been shagging now for weeks. Any questions?"

I agree with amejisuto, you should definitely make an icon with that. *g*
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 12:17 am (UTC)
Thanks! That line seems to have amused everyone. :o)

I might just go make some icons soon... *g*

I love the progression there. The first part with the stunned silence, the second part with Xander babbling almost to himself, and the last part. *happy sigh* Loved Tara's reaction.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 12:23 am (UTC)
Thanks. :o)

Tara knew already, of course, because she's the quiet one who watches and takes it all in. *g*
willshenilshe on December 12th, 2004 12:24 am (UTC)
Way to tell 'em, Xander! *pumps fist* Oh, yes! As always, you just plain satisfy the Spander urge. Bravo on these!
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 12:32 am (UTC)
Thank you! :o)

My Spander urge is never satisfied. *g*
rubyblushu on December 12th, 2004 12:30 am (UTC)
I love the way Spike handles the outing of the relationship. It's so very Spike.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 12:41 am (UTC)
Thanks! Demonstrations are so much simpler than complicated explanations. *g*

darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 12:42 am (UTC)
*smooch* Thankee. :o) I have fun writing them.

Sweetly snarky... delightful.

Sweetly snarky

Just what I was aiming for. ;o)

Sorry about your guitarcityphonelines on December 12th, 2004 01:33 am (UTC)
Loved all the Xander babble and word trippage! Just loved.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 01:37 am (UTC)
He's so much fun to write when he's babbling or saying stuff he didn't mean to. *g*

*purrs with satisfaction* Ah! Got my weekend dose of darkhavens drabbles! *grins* "Kiss me. They'll figure it out." *watches mental porn vid* Yummy.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 01:56 am (UTC)
Aw, thank you! I made you purr. Whee!

And yes, that vid has been playing here nonstop too. *g*

*squeals* That was lovely. Really, REALLY enjoyed that. First Xander confessing to Spike, and then both of them confessing to the Scoobs. LOVE that last line, and I'm with amejisuto; make it into an icon, 'cause...yeah. That's perfect. ^_^

darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 02:47 am (UTC)
Thank you. :o) I'll probably iconise that line tomorrow. ;o)
tabaquitabaqui on December 12th, 2004 03:09 am (UTC)

darkhavensdarkhavens on December 12th, 2004 03:15 am (UTC)
Thankee. :o)
