Title: For Keeps
Author: gryfndor_godess / on LJ, gryfndor_godess
Rating: PG-13; probably a few chapters will be R down the road.
Summary: When unknown demons attack Spike in autumn 2019 and infect him with what seems to be a parasite, all Slayer and Watcher hands are on deck to try to get it out of him. But what if the “parasite” could be something more?
A/N 1: This is, as you may be able to tell from the summary, an mpreg fic. Spike gets pregnant. If the concept of male pregnancy freaks you out, this is probably not the fic for you.
A/N 2: This is a WIP. I expect it to be a good-sized novella when all is well and done. Sadly, I am quite far from being well and done, and all I have at the moment is Chapter 1 and maybe Chapter 2 later in the week, if I can get my act together. Writing (of any kind; not just this) has been like pulling teeth lately, but I am hopeful that this story at least will take off once I get past the introductory, what-the-hell-is-inside-of-Spike chapters. In any case, this is my first time posting a WIP (in BtVS fandom at least), and my apologies if updates take a while. Please feel free to friend me if mpreg is your cup of tea and you’d like to keep up with the fic.
A/N 3: So not only is this a WIP, this is a WIP that takes place far in the future in my post-NFA verse, which I not at all ironically call the HEA-verse. In this verse Anya and Cordelia were resurrected by the PTB after NFA, the Scoobies moved back to the newly rebuilt (but no longer a Hellmouth) Sunnydale in mid-2005, and they all had children a few years later. The pairings are Buffy/Spike, Xander/Anya, Willow/Oz, Cordelia/Angel, and Dawn/Gunn. A list of fics in this verse is on my fic masterlist if you’re interested, but below the cut is a brief description of original characters and other relevant information that will tell you all you need to know.
A/N 4: Thank you again to the mods for everything you do!
Lastly, this is for snickfic, who wields her great power of seducing people to mpreg with great responsibility. Thank you for the inspiration, Snick.
