2.02: School Hard

"Come on, people! This isn't a spectator sport!"

Spike's minions charged forward.

Xander turned to run and Spike easily snatched him back, keeping a firm grip on his throat. Angel lunged towards the door but, at Spike's signal, was restrained by several eager minions.

Sensing someone behind him, Spike looked up and grinned.

"Fe-fi-fo-fum. I smell the blood of a nice, ripe..." he turned, "Slayer."

Buffy tightened her grip on the axe as her eyes flickered from Spike to Angel to Xander and back again. "Let them go."

Spike's grin widened.

"Oh no, luv. You have to choose."

Pause.

"Angel...?"




2.16: Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

Drusilla knocked Angelus back into the tree, laughing gleefully when his head bounced solidly off the trunk. He dropped, soundless and insensate, to the ground.

"Don't fret, kitten." Graciously she helped a stunned Xander to his feet. "Mummy's here, and she's got great plans for you. The magic in the air tells me to love you and I do, but the stars have told me you're not mine to keep."

Not noticing his struggles or his protests Dru went on, leading him further from safety with every word.

"You'll be the perfect little brother for my Spike, Miss Edith said..."




4.10 Hush

Xander stood, clad only in boxers and a t-shirt, carefully checking the knots that attached a naked Spike to the tubular steel frame of his foldout bed.

"Don't see why I have to be tied up like this. Be much more fun if I could actually move a bit, it would. Angelus taught me some really dirty tricks, but I need leverage."

"Shut it, Spike. I'm sure I've got a gag around here somewhere. A souvenir from the summer I spent in Oxnard."

Spike's eyes lit up in anticipation.

"So what you waiting for, Pet, an invitation?"

"No, for Anya."




7.02: Beneath You

"Is there anyone here who hasn't slept together?"

The urge to turn and look was overwhelming, and Xander had never been any good at resisting temptation.

He turned.

So did Spike.

The matching actions failed to go un-noticed.

"Xander?" That was Nancy.

"Xander!" That was Anyanka.

"Spike?!" That was Buffy.

The accused's gazes held for a moment and then they shrugged, and turned to face the music.

"I'm thinking this would probably go much easier with alcohol."

Spike snorted.

"That's what got us into this mess in the first place, you stupid git."

"Didn't hear you complaining at the time."

These were great! School Hard broke my heart, but Beneath You was absolutely perfect!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! I choose to believe that Spike would rather keep Xander than Angel and that he whisked him off and kept him. I should probably put a 'safe' on the end of that sentence, but this is Spike... *g*

All of them lovely, but, Hee! for Beneath You. That "look" was absolutely priceless.

And a thousand slash fics were born.

Thanks! It was such an obvious slashy moment. My favourite scene in that whole season! LOL!

Spike snorted.

LMAO! Hee! I always loved that little scene. We all *know* they slept together. Oh yesiree!

Great job!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:12 am (UTC)
Yes1 It's totally obvious that they were doing the deed when they reacted like that. *g*

Thanks!
yeah, i live on the hellmouth.: vamp xander loves partsvichan on April 12th, 2005 09:56 pm (UTC)
*squeak* I love the *look.* My boyfriend still makes fun of me for how much I flipped out when I saw it the first time.

And Dru just HAS to have her kitten... *purr*
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:14 am (UTC)
The first time they showed the episode on TV I missed it, but I caught it when they repeated the show and I was highly amused. But it took me another 6 months to actually 'discover' Spander. o.O

And of course Dru must have her Kitten, but only until she can give him to Spike cos Miss Edith said... ;)

Thanks!

Mmmm Lovely. Dru and her Dark Kitten is a fav of mine. I smirked when Buffy choose Angel (Spander!). And Spike tied to the bed - always a happy thought.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:20 am (UTC)
I love giving Dru her Kitten, so long as I know she's going to get bored quickly and pass him on to Spike. And Buffy? Well, I gave her the benefit of the doubt (in a weak editing moment) and added a '?' to 'Angel' so she could have been asking him for help or advice, but I also know that Spike's evil enough to insist on accepting her first answer - cos he wants to keep Xander. *g*

And who doesn't have a happy at the thought of Spike ties to a bed? :P

Thanks!

Whoa! Great drabbles luv!! Really wonderful. I'm curious to what happened with the School Hard one. That's really great!!

Good work as always!

I just told werewindle above that I gave Buffy the benefit of the doubt (in a weak editing moment) and added a '?' to 'Angel' so she could have been asking him for help or advice. But only because I know that Spike's evil enough to insist on accepting her first answer - cos he wants to keep Xander.

So, Xander is safe(ish), and Buffy and Angel have to explain to Willow and Giles just how they managed to screw up and lose Xander. *g*

Thanks!

Oh, very good. The first one twisted my stomach (poor Xander).
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:24 am (UTC)
Thanks! I think Spike took Xander home and made him feel better... eventually. ;)
Sharvie_sharvie_ on April 12th, 2005 10:53 pm (UTC)
Xander just can't get a break in your world, can he? *lol* Lovely work!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 13th, 2005 12:26 am (UTC)
Hey! Okay, so Buffy chose Angel, and Dru caught Xander and turned him, and he got found out by his ex, the newly re-installed Vengeance Demon, and his almost-date, and his super-powered friend, but... he got to tie naked Spike to his bed!

All in all, I think he came out on top - in more ways than one. ;)

Thanks! :D
Nebula: iconic_moon_spanderauthoressnebula on April 13th, 2005 01:03 am (UTC)
School Hard, I can just see the look on Xander's face when she said Angel. B, B, and B, with Dru leading a frightened but probably curious Xander to her beloved Spike. Hush had me right at the 'naked Spike' part (and drooling over my laptop, thank you very much, ~_^)

But it was that last one that made me laugh. And squeal. Because I SO wish that had happened.

Absolutely lovely hun, as always!

Hee! Thanks! When I first saw the episode I saw The Look, and then wondered why nobody else had seen it. I wanted reaction! Anyanka, Nancy, Buffy... somebody should have seen it and gone "OMG! You've had sex!" But no, they were blind and dumb and no fun at all. *g*
funkparadise on April 13th, 2005 01:45 am (UTC)
All are excellent as usual, but the rewrite of Beneath You?

::jumps up and down and claps::

Hee.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:57 am (UTC)
Thankee!

I just had to do that one. I remember being in shock when I saw that look and no-one on screen noticed it. *g*
tabaquitabaqui on April 13th, 2005 02:12 am (UTC)
Heeeee.
You do the best drabbles, i swear.
:)
*bounce*
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:57 am (UTC)
Thanks, darlin! *smooch*
Genghis Katkat8cha on April 13th, 2005 02:21 am (UTC)
Georgeuos all of them. School Hard made me want to hit Buffy *hard* but then she redeemed herself in Beneath You. All very cute, and funny.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 01:00 am (UTC)
Thanks, :D.

In all fairness I have to give Buffy the benefit of the doubt. I really think she was asking Angel for help, but Xander and Spike would both take it the wrong way which works out fine really... *g*
outsideth3boxoutsideth3box on April 13th, 2005 02:36 am (UTC)
I love your drabbles!

I can remember how hard I laughed and carried on when I first saw Beneath You. That look was precious. Thanks for making it come out right this time!

The rest were great, too, but that one really tickled me.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 01:06 am (UTC)
Thanks!

That episode, believe it or not, was the first time I ever even considered Spike/Xander, and it still took me months to discover fanfic!
Virtual Personal: Smiley laughing - andemaiarvirtualpersonal on April 13th, 2005 03:37 am (UTC)
All good, but the last one still has me grinning like a fool!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 01:07 am (UTC)
Thanks! Love your icon. :D

Oh ye gods! That beneath you one is sublime! You are a genius of epic proportions, my dear.

::curtsies::

Thankee, m'dear. I had wonderful material to work off. ;)
