My Left Fang

Ghost buster prompt: My Left Fang

Buffy shuffled blearily into the kitchen, filled the coffee pot, and turned around to see a vampire snarling at her.

"Ow!" Spike said, miserably, on the floor, holding his no-longer-bumpy forehead where Buffy had hit it with the coffee pot.

"Sorry!" Buffy reached to help Spike back up. "What were you doing in game face before breakfast?"

"My tooth is loose." Spike vamped out again and poked at his left fang. "Lookth."

It did, indeed, wobble as Spike poked at it. Buffy poked at it and he said "OW!"

"Well, don't vamp out."

The fangs and ridges melted away into a pout. Buffy wondered, not for the first time, where, exactly, the fangs went. She'd never felt any under-gum fang or anything, and she'd explored Spike's mouth pretty damn thoroughly over the course of their relationship.

Mmm Spike mouth. Buffy was momentarily distracted by that thought, and from the scowl on Spike's face she could tell she'd missed him saying something. "Hm?"

"What if there's another big bad before it heals? I'll have to bite 'em, and then I'll lose my bloody fang."

"You won't lose your fang. Not if you stop playing with it." She ruffled his hair. He pretended to be annoyed at that. "And even if you did, so what? I think it would be cute. Pugnacious."

Spike growled. "Don't want to be cute. I want to rip flesh out of demons."

Buffy had successfully wormed her way into his arms at this point, which was almost as good as having her coffee ready. "Well, next time don't bite the stone-skin demon." She kissed his nose, and he relented, sitting down with her to canoodle and wait for the coffee to boil. But she knew she'd have to keep smacking his fingers away from his teeth for a week or so.

Awww, poor wobbly-toothed Spike. *g*

Isn't he cute? :) Glad you liked.

But would it grow back?

At least it was the stone-skinned demon that did it, and not Buffy whacking him in the face with the coffee pot.

I was wondering about teh grow-back issue as I was writing. Wasn't sure if it would or would not and then decided it wasn't integral to the wee ficlet. I'm going to go with - yeah, sure, they grow back. Makes him whinier. :P

Buffy got him firmly in the temple, so no tooth damage. Otherwise she'd have to be very contrite, indeed!

Oh, Spike. When will you ever learn? NEVER sneak up on a slayer before she's had her morning cup of coffee. Heh.

Spike growled. "Don't want to be cute. I want to rip flesh out of demons."

That's our Spike! ::pets him::

Love it! Soooo cute.

Hee. Silly Spikey. He really really should have known better.

Poor boy doesn't want to be cute, but he never fails! :D

Mmmm, mouth of Spike, have to agree! Super-cute!

Heee! Who wouldn't like a thorough mapping of the mouth of spike? So glad you enjoyed!

And poor loose-fanged Spike ought to know better. You wait until after the caffeine!
Oct. 29th, 2012 04:42 pm (UTC)
hee. Yes. Pre-coffee is a bad time to surprise a slayer!

mmm coffee
Oct. 29th, 2012 09:33 am (UTC)
Oh, poor Spike! He was totally his fault, since Buffy was seriously caffeine deprived, but he so cute when he's fussy and pouty! Aaawwwhhh! X3
Great ficlet!
Oct. 29th, 2012 04:43 pm (UTC)
hee. He /is/ so cute when he's fussy and pouty! So glad you enjoyed!

I wonder if there's a tooth fairy for vampires?
(Actually, come to think of it, I wrote one of those once.)
Oct. 29th, 2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
hee. Yeah, I wonder about their dental needs, too. Loved that scene in Angel when Harmony vamps out to brush her fangs.
:D I seem to recall the vampire toothfairy story. I recall it was cracky! :D

My tooth fairy was in Scheherazade, a very long story in which Spike Sleeps with Everyone. :-)
Oct. 29th, 2012 04:17 pm (UTC)
Haha poor Spike! Will the tooth fairy come and give him treats if he loses the fang? Adorable fic!
Oct. 29th, 2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
Hee. Thank you. I imagine a bag of blood is harder to slip under a pillow than a quarter, huh? :)
Oct. 30th, 2012 02:36 pm (UTC)
Poor Spike. Wobbly teeth are soo annoying!
Oct. 31st, 2012 11:34 am (UTC)
Well Spike that will teach you not to bite stone demons. Lol. This was very cute.
