Fic: Caught

Title: Caught
Creator: drizzlydaze
Rating: PG
Setting: S2 School Hard
Word count: 547
Prompt: 4. If only Spike had caught Buffy's eye in that club...
A/N: Loving the prompts again this month!

“There’s some big guy out back trying to bite someone!”

Which grabbed her attention. She gave Willow and Xander the look, headed straight for the door. But then a flash of platinum hair caught her eye and she turned, glimpsing the man who had spoken about the vampire in the first place before he melted into the crowd. “Hey, wait!” she shouted, knowing full well that shouting never worked in clubs. So she broke out in a near jog to where he had been, and he emerged from the crowd again.

She bumped into his chest, and boy, what a chest! Hard and muscled, cool to touch. “H-hi,” she said, feeling tingles all over her body. She suddenly felt a lot more alert. This guy. This guy. “So, uh, what’s with the whole Billy Idol look?”

He raised an eyebrow. He seemed like the kind of guy that would do that a lot, be sardonic to the world, a kind of jerk, kind of an ass, but super hot while he was at it. “Betty Blonde,” he said in response.

So she had to get this right. But her mind kept coming up blank for things to say as she tried jamming down the thanks for telling me about the vampire out there, because, hello, talk about not very smart, and she said instead, “Wanna dance?"

He looked amused. “Sure.”

She smiled widely. “Buffy,” she said. “Buffy Summers.”

He took a step towards her, a smirk unfurling across his face like there was some private joke she wasn’t getting. “Spike.” He leaned towards her, and more tingles popped up. “But let’s get somewhere a little more private, yeah?” British accent.

“Yeah, okay,” she said, trying to sound casual about it. Like she hadn’t been hoping for that. And they walked to a dark corner in the Bronze. Buffy knew just what those corners were for.

Their faces inches apart, neither spoke and neither began to dance. Tinglies all over her body as she waited, looked into his pale face, his ice blue eyes, and then he leaned in, hand trailing over her face. “Buffy,” he whispered, still with that small smirk playing around his lips. “You…”

“Yeah?” she said, with a hand on his body and the other in her back pocket.

Instead of going for her lips, his mouth found her neck. She arched it back. “You…” he murmured again in this intimate stance. “…I can’t decide if you’re delicious or disappointing…” She could feel something changing against her skin. “…if I’m delighted or disappointed…” his words a little less clear. “… but I just have to tell you…” He pressed himself closer to her and the vamp tingles intensified.

“…Tell me…?”

He dragged his mouth across her neck and suddenly pulled back, face right in front of her, fangy grin, ridged brow. “You’re about as much of an idiot as I thought. You’d think you’d know a v—”
Cloud of dust, check. The tingles disappeared. “And that took longer than I thought,” she said. “You’d think you’d know the Slayer when you saw her.” She walked back to Will and Xand.

“We saw you double back,” Willow said. “The guy with the convenient tipoff—he was really a vamp?”

She nodded. “Just another vamp.”

Very much in character - but I can't tell you how glad I am that it didn't happen that way!

I love the fact that the sexual attraction is very much there, even while both of them are thinking about their missions.

Thanks! Boy am I glad it didn't happen that way either.

Oh I'm glad that this is just an AU. I can't think about BtVS without Spike! Nicely done.
May. 8th, 2013 10:04 am (UTC)
It wouldn't be BtVS then. Thank you.

Great work (though I'm glad it didn't work out that way too).

These prompts seem to be inspiring people.
May. 8th, 2013 10:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! I love the prompts.
May. 2nd, 2013 12:36 pm (UTC)
Oh boy. Nicely done! Would've worked too.
May. 8th, 2013 10:04 am (UTC)
Thank you!

aaaaaaaaaw. Waste of a Spike!

May. 8th, 2013 10:05 am (UTC)
I couldn't agree more!
May. 2nd, 2013 02:27 pm (UTC)
Yep, that's how it'd go down, all right!
May. 8th, 2013 10:05 am (UTC)
It's sad to think it, but yup.

Honestly, I find fics like this way less sad than the kind where S2 Buffy is dazzled by Spike's sinister attraction and goes around acting like the heroine of a 1970's bodice-ripper. :D
May. 8th, 2013 02:04 pm (UTC)
Haha yes!

Eeep! I was thinking, so this is either going to end in an OOC but gratifying snog session, or just how it should - which it did. Poor Spike!! Although really he deserved it, underestimating the Buffster.
May. 8th, 2013 10:06 am (UTC)
I was making sure to write Buffy with a double meaning in all her actions -- tingles of arousal actually being vamp tingles, that kind of thing. Ah, Spike.
May. 2nd, 2013 06:36 pm (UTC)
This is FAB! I love how Buffy works that "dim-witted damsel" routine and how Spike doesn't realize that he's being played by the consummate pro. Sad that Spike had to wind up dust, but you handled this scenario beautifully.

May. 8th, 2013 10:07 am (UTC)
Thank you! Luckily it didn't turn out that way in the show.

*sniffle* But he wasn't just another vamp!

Well done. His over-confidence definitely would have been his downfall.
May. 8th, 2013 10:08 am (UTC)
Thanks. Spike and his ego.
May. 3rd, 2013 08:45 am (UTC)
That's really nifty!
Very amusing what if.
May. 8th, 2013 10:08 am (UTC)
Thank you. I love what ifs.
May. 4th, 2013 10:39 pm (UTC)
Don't mind me, I'll just be crying in the corner.
(Great fic, by the way. Horrible, of course, but great.) :)
May. 8th, 2013 10:08 am (UTC)
Heheh, thank you! *hands you a tissue. Very belatedly*
May. 8th, 2013 03:13 pm (UTC)
I'm really enjoying your episode "rewrites" - I guess I'm supposed to be sad or something, but since we know it didn't go down that way I'm just impressed by how true to the characters and the story you are; very well-done!
May. 9th, 2013 08:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! I just set out to write the way it would've gone down, not specifically aiming for sad. Though when I read it over, really would be a pity (and kinda funny, in an irony way) if Spike had dusted so early in the game.
