Slayer on a Mission

Prompt: I have a bone to pick with you.
Setting: S8, when Spike shows up to save the day.  If you don't know S8, just know they - finally - get their reunion in the middle of an apocalypse.
Rating: G
Words: 100

Since I acknowledged comics exist by setting a prompt in S9, I have to do S8 as well, to round my series out.  Otherwise I'll feel all unfulfilled and incomplete, and won't be able to sleep properly.

*Is not OCD.  Not one little bit.*


It kinda sucks being the Slayer – still the Slayer, the one in charge, these days – because there’s never time to stop, never time to deal, and why do long-fantasized-about reunions have to happen in the middle of the biggest apocalypse yet?

On the other hand, she’s never been one for dealing, has she.  Nope, still not good with the talking and the sharing, and the how could you leave me when you were the one who didn’t leave? and don’t you love me anymore?

It’s probably better this way.  She marches up to him, all business.  Slayer on a mission.

Awww, no! I hate that they didn't get back together. You have a chance to fix that!

Oh, and I also hated the bug-mobile / spaceship thing Spike had going. How stupid was that? One of the many reasons I stopped reading the comics.

Er - I'm trying to keep within the realm of canon, so no fixing, sorry. Even though I'd love to!

You know, the spaceship is one of the few things I really liked, but I read all the IDW Spike comics first. They really made his relationship with the bugs come to life. Plus, vampire/dashing spaceship captain mashup. It's a kink I can get behind. :)

I never read the Spike comics so it's possible the bugs came too far out of nowhere for me. Plus, they're bugs. It's probably the bugs aspect of it more than the spaceship aspect that I don't like.

I'm more of a B5 than a Star Trek fan so I guess I'm less into the dashing captain thing. Now if he was running around, trying to drink alien blood, and finding it completely incompatible, that I could get behind. ;-)

Firefly. I dare you to watch Firefly and *not* develop a thing for dashing spaceship captains. :)

Oooh... I just realized there's so much more potential for crossover fics now that Spike has space travel experience. The world needs more Firefly X Buffy!

Already a huge Firefly fan. It's only my list of top 4 tv shows.

And you're right, that could make some intersting crossovers. I think you need to get busy writing them. ;-)

Difficult for me to see any interaction between the two characters in the comics as positive, but kudos to you for trying, darling.

Worst. Reunion. Ever.

But yeah, I tried. :) Thanks!
