*sighs happily* You're bloody fantastic, sweetie. *giggles* Xander, his second curse. I like that! Absolutely adored these. I think my favorite was Spike's caring note with each gift. (Insert appropriate 'aww' here. ~_^)

You're bloody fantastic, sweetie.

::preens:: Thank you!

Yeah, the notes were suitably 'aww'-y. *g* He's a clever vamp. ;o)

Yummy! Especially that last one, it's delicious.

Thanks! With a promp like 'Gifts/Presents' I couldn't really do anything else but revisit my favourite episode. *g*

A wonderful set of drabbles (as usual). I love evil Spike looking after Xander.
And, because I don't know where else I can comment on the community, I want to say how much I love this place! I check it at least once every day, knowing I will find something special. (I've been lurking for a while now!) Thank you for running such a fantastic community, with such talented writers. I am coming out of the closet to say that, yes, I am a Spanderholic and this is my fix of choice!
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 29th, 2004 04:21 am (UTC)
Firstly, thank you for the compliment on the drabbles.

Secondly, thnks for coming out of the closet to say how much you're enjoying bloodclaim. Every time someone says something like that it puts a silly grin on my face and makes me all sappy. *g*

Welcome, fellow Spanderholic. ;o)

This story gave me the giggles. And happily curling toes.

I curled your toes? Hee! Thanks. :o)

Oh that was lovely and everything I like, innocent Xander, vampire Spike and broody Angel - Cindy Lee
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 29th, 2004 04:26 am (UTC)
Thank you! It's everything I like too. I ♥ School Hard fic. *g*

OOOOoooo! YAY! Nice one!! ~bounces~ Everyone should know how much I love warped School Hard!! Heee hee! I loved the whole visits and gifts thing! And the 'Thank You's' were perfect.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 29th, 2004 04:32 am (UTC)
Everyone should know how much I love warped School Hard

You and me both!

And the 'Thank You's' were perfect.

Hee! I couldn't resist having the boys driving Angel mad with silly stuff and at the same time reminding him that the whole thing was his 'fault'. *g*

Thanks! :o)

I like this. A new twist on an old theme. Love the presents, and Xander's reaction to them. Especially loved how he left his house. The last bit though, "His second curse..." Wow. Perfect ending.

The last bit though, "His second curse..." Wow. Perfect ending.

Thanks! It was one of those lines that just happen. I had 6 words left, thought 'Spike and Xander...' and there it was. Angel set himself up with a second curse by taking the boy who hated him with a passion and handing him over to... the vampire who hated him with a passion. *g*

Sexy and yearning and hee! funny at the end. You're the mistress of spander drabbling.
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 30th, 2004 08:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you, darlin'!

I couldn't resist adding the funny at the end. You just know those boys would never be able to resist taunting Angel with what he set in motion. *g*
it only burns when I breathe: spike&xander_goodboy_secondversespikedluv on January 18th, 2005 05:30 pm (UTC)
OMG, I loved these!!! Spike was so sweet, in a creepy way, and poor Xander is so needy. (I adore it when the boys fulfill each other's needs...and, well, just fill each other in general. *weg*)

But the last one was hilarious! I loved the idea that they never let Angel forget. And your title, lol, was perfect. As was your last line, Spike and Xander, his second curse. *snicker*

Spike was so sweet, in a creepy way, and poor Xander is so needy.

A perfect description. I think that's why S2 is my favourite flavour of Spander.

But the last one was hilarious! I loved the idea that they never let Angel forget. And your title, lol, was perfect. As was your last line, Spike and Xander, his second curse. *snicker*

Well, they both love winding Angel up. I figure together they'd never ever let him forget that he was completely responsible for getting them together.

That last line had me giggling even as I typed it.

Thanks! :o)

i like this one too. thank you for sending me the link.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 9th, 2005 12:04 am (UTC)
Thanks for fbing. I'm glad you liked it. :o)
You know what would be creepy and unexpected?: Drucillafleshlycherry on February 9th, 2005 03:33 am (UTC)
I followed this link from stagesoflove, and I'm in awe. Spander is a ship that needs a lot of work before it will tickle my fancy. You've done that. Absolutely excellent.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 12th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Thank you! I do enjoy sharing the joy that is Spander, especially with non-believers and those who need to be convinced. ;o)
