(I promise that I don't come up with prompts for story ideas I already have - this prompt was shapinglight's brilliant idea. I just, erm, get excited?)

This is set maybe after DMP, but before Dead Things happened?

Spuffy vs Mecha Godzilla
by Quinara.

“Buffy! Buffy! Spike! Buffy!” Xander yelled as he burst into the crypt, footsteps thudding. Buffy hadn’t been at home and it didn’t look like she was here – but the trapdoor was open, so he headed over.

Before he could go down, however, Spike’s torso popped out of the hole. “What’s happening?” he asked breathlessly, pulling at his collar as if his shirt were the wrong way round. Something was weird with his hair as well…

Still, no time for that. “Spike! Is Buffy here?”

“Er…” Spike looked way more startled than the question required. With the clack of a belt buckle he seemed to ignore Xander entirely, trudging dazedly onto the upper floor and looking at the ceiling. “I, er, don’t…” OK, whatever Spike was about to say? He was lying.

“I’m here!” Buffy’s chirpy voice broke the silence. Soon she’d appeared as well, all bouncy hair and rosy cheeks (and wasn’t that a nice change), looking almost – summery?

“D’you come all the way here without a sweater, Buff?” he asked, feeling overdressed in his coat and scarf.

Buffy laughed, very brightly. “No, no,” she said, crossing her arms over her tank top and rubbing her bare arms. “Spike and I were, um, working out – you know…”

“She got hot,” Spike filled in, sounding like he was trying to be helpful. “There was sweat.”

“No there wasn’t!” Buffy insisted, turning beetroot red. OK… “Well, there was,” Buffy continued, stating the obvious. “But only work out sweat – exercise! Training! Like at the gym; wholesome!”

That was when Xander decided that there was way more going on here than he cared to think about right now. “There’s no time for this!” he said, waving a hand at the two of them and their relieved faces. “I’ve got something more important to talk about…”




And that was how Xander Harris got to have the best night of his life, watching his best friend – and vampire slayer extraordinaire – as well as, uh, Spike fight freaking Godzilla down Sunnydale Main Street. Him, Dawn and Anya, pigging out at the Espresso Pump like they were at the drive-in: it was perfect.

“Ooh, look at that!” Anya chirruped over her muffin, as Buffy and Spike felled the monster with some wire from the hardware store. And Buffy claimed she’d slept through Episode V…

Still in audible range, Buffy whooped, “And that is for ruining our –”

“Love,” Spike interrupted. “There’s people in here.” All three of the spectators (along with the rest of the crowd) got to their feet as Spike cracked open some sort of cockpit.

Omigod, it’s a mecha???

Xander thought he was going to black out from the pleasure, but he was brought back down to earth as Buffy dragged Warren, Jonathan and some other guy from Godzilla’s head.

As the police took them away, he smiled; his perfect night had come to a perfect end – he’d never seen Buffy look so happy.

Though, hey, she was turning to Spike now and –

HEY!!

BWAHAHAHAHA that is so funny and adorable! I really like how the godzilla monster is the trio's device and how much Xander fanboys over the whole thing. My favorite part, though (other than the ending), is how Xander notices that Spike's hair is messed up. :)

Happy! That made me very happy. I love that thing they do where someone interrupts and finishes a sentence with the right thing but it isn't actually the end of the sentence. You know the thing I mean, 'cause you did it in this story. *nods*

What exactly did Buffy do to Spike at the end? :O
quinara
Oct. 1st, 2010 10:27 pm (UTC)
Yay!! And absolutely. *nods*

I think she may have expressed her happiness in a non-Xander-friendly way... ;)

That is fabulous-brilliant from beginning to end. And of course it had to be from Xander-POV.

I know I'm just a dirty old woman, but the "clack of a belt buckle" kinda of took over my brain. I'm happy that Xander Harris got to have the best night of his life complete with front row spectating (and popcorn?), but the delayed reaction is the best part. Maybe. It could also have been Buffy's rosy cheeks (for a nice change). Hard to say. Must appreciate in its entirety...

Well, I'm glad you appreciate it! There is a very dirty fic hidden behind all this - Xander's just far too oblivious... :)

Oh. My. God.

This is the best fic you have ever written. Like, seriously.

BRB DYING.

Heee! Wow, thank you! I'm not entirely sure I agree (but maybe my ego just wants some sort of time spent/quality of output ratio), but SO GLAD YOU LIKED.

Oh this is so made of win!!

LOLS!

The flushed and friendly Spike and Buffy being stumbled in on by Xander! Heeeee!! Shades of invisible Buffy's madcap adventures!

And then mecha-godzilla! Oh it's too awesome!
*applauds*

Oh, thank you!!!

The question is, for how long can Xander remain oblivious... (In the face of the mighty Spuffy, not long, I say!)

*bows* ;)

Oh, thank you! :D For some reason I quite like the idea of the Espresso Pump as The Place to Watch Fights...

And the Trio? LOL! They *would* make a Godzilla and fight Buffy!
