It’s my day! *bites nails* It’s a long story, and I have to leave for work in 45 min., so I’m not going to get it all up this morning. With luck, I’ll have most of it up before midnight, but can’t swear to it. I won’t be be home much at all today until well after 9:00 p.m. If I don’t get it all up (a distinct possibility since I haven’t finished the ending) I’ll link to it on my LJ/DW accounts. I’d do chapters at a time, but I don’t do short chapters and that might be a little too much for many readers.
Title: Making it Work (early season four)
Word count: 20,000 ++
Rating: Strong R or NC17?
Disclaimer: Joss’s characters, I just tweaked the season a little. (Okay, I tweaked it a lot. Don’t sue me!)
Summary: Continues from two Schmoop Bingo ficlets (I’ll provide links as soon as I have time) in which a drunk Spike comes to Buffy after Dru has kicked him out again. He thinks he wants to fight her, but ends up realizing that’s not what he wants at all… In this fic, they find that their situation may not be all that unique. The question is, can an unchipped, unsouled formerly evil vampire contain his demon well enough to suit the Chosen One? Can they make it work?
