Fic: Unknowing; Known

Angst and sadness abound here, sorry.

Title: Unknowing; Known
Summary: He doesn't know (during "The Gift")
Prompt: Funeral Bell
Rating: PG

He doesn't know.

Until he wakes, skull cracked and bleeding on the cold and distant ground, he doesn't know the fate of the world. He doesn't know the fate of her.

But he finds himself crawling through the rubble, Sun poking meekly through clouds of dust. He could have burned to ashes then, and never have known.

Then he sees. Lain out on the timber, daylight painting her gold, she sleeps.

She sleeps, in peace, as he falls to pieces.

He does know, then.

Spike knows that after today, the Sun won't shine again.

Oh, well, that's cheerful.

Good job with the prompt. I had no idea what to do with that one. ;-)

Well, what can I say? I write words made from sunshine! :)

You know what, as soon as I saw the prompt, I knew this was what I had to write, whereas most of the ones you've answered? Mindwipe. Funny, that.

Aww, thank you Sweetie!

I really wanted it to be sad...

I don't know why but I'm really feeling the sad and the angst of late, and at risk of sounding like an evil maniac, the characters are so damn fun to fuck with.

I just need to get some torture fic done and I'm set for life.

Poor Spike - sometimes victory doesn't feel triumphant at all.

It really doesn't, and what a shame; to fight so hard and loose so much seems unfair.

And she was just starting to let him in again.

I'm glad you like, Honey, x

Aww...

I warned you guys. There's a big warning right there, about the sad times, but still you venture there...

I made your icon cry :(

*spoiler alert* the Sun comes back up. Spike, stop crying. Please?

Aww, thanks, Honey, that was the idea!

(Don't cry though, makes me feel all guilty)

Yeah, sorry. I couldn't help it. My brain went to that sad place and I couldn't resist.
