Fic: Of A Christmas Rose and Mistletoe

Title: Of A Christmas Rose and Mistletoe
Summary: It's Christmas in Sunnydale and Spike's taking advantage
Rating: PG
A/N: Black Hellebore is also called "Christmas Rose"

The crypt door flew open with a bang and was invaded by a blonde tornado. A hand was around his neck, gripping tight, as his back made friends with the stone wall.

"Merry Christmas to you too, love," he winked, sagging in her hold.

He watched her falter and blush, trying not to smile back at him as his gaze crawled over her festive attire. All red and gold. As a vampire, he conceded they were two damn good colours.

"I don't have time for your joking, Spike. Do you know anything about the short green demons kidnapping kids in town?" Her foot tapped impatiently and her stomach gurgled.

Spike's grin was nothing short of evil. "You mean Santa's elves?"

She dropped him, letting Spike clatter awkwardly to the cold crypt floor. "You are no help." Shaking her swishy blonde ponytail, Buffy turned toward the door.

Spike cleared his throat. "Aren't you forgetting something?"


His eyebrow twitched, and he flicked his gaze towards the ceiling. "You an' me are under the mistletoe, pet. Gonna give us a kiss?"

If looks could dust… But with a begrudging sigh, Buffy stomped over and lay on his lips a kiss so soft he only felt when it was gone.

He stared at her in awe, his smile sated.

"And Spike? Mistletoe isn't black." She rolled her eyes and stormed back out into the harsh lukewarmth, slamming the crypt door in her wake.

"Love you too, petal."

Well yeah, for all my angsty bravado, I'm a big softie.

I mean, could you deny that face a kiss? I sure couldn't.

Thanks for reading!

Hmm, black mistletoe. I wonder what spell you can make with that?

If you can't be fluffy at christmas, then when can you?

Glad you like!

Heh. Iiiiinteresting. And also appropriate - of course Spike's mistletoe substitute is black...

Thank you.

This is Spike, black is the colour of choice. And I just had a really weird brainwave about Harmony saying the chip wouldn't let him pick flowers, so maybe he just picked up the first dead plant he found. And now I'm laughing really hard.

Thanks. Just wait, there's more angst on the way - I haven't gone completely fluffy...

Oh my gosh you mentioned the c word and it's not even November yet. This was so good though that I forgive you.

In my defence, I DID mention the flower - black Hellebore - of the prompt was also called "Christmas Rose". That said, it's like the third Christmas fic I've written (not published) this year, and I REGRET NOTHING!

And thank you. I enjoyed writing it too much for words. x
