many fandoms little time by me

The Sunnydale Herald Newsletter, Saturday, June 27

HARMONY: Okay, I'm trying to be supportive here so don't drive a stake through my heart like last time, but you can't kill Buffy. She's the Slayer. She is so gonna kick your ass.
SPIKE (loading shotgun): I've got two barrels here that'll prove you wrong.
HARMONY: I knew you'd take this personally. You are so sensitive! How are you going to kill her? Think! The second you even point that thing at her, you're gonna be all, "Ahhh!" And then, you'll get bitch-slapped up and down Main Street--unless she's had enough and just stakes you!
SPIKE: Sure, it'll hurt like hell for about two hours...
SPIKE grabs HARMONY by the neck and twists. HARMONY gasps in pain.
SPIKE: But she'll be dead just a little longer than that.
(Summers's home, backyard and porch. SPIKE watches BUFFY from the bushes, then moves forward, striding purposefully toward her, gun at his side. He raises the gun and cocks it. She looks up at the sound, her face wet with tears.)
BUFFY: What do you want now?
(SPIKE is about to pull the trigger when he sees her tears. His rage vanishes in an instant.)
SPIKE: What's wrong?
BUFFY: I don't want to talk about it.
(SPIKE lowers the gun.)
SPIKE: Is there something I can do?
(BUFFY says nothing, overcome with tears. SPIKE sits down next to her, setting the shotgun down with a clunk, and tentatively pats her back.)

    Rating Info
    • Fiction Rating Key Here
    • "NR" = "Not Rated"
    • Authors' given ratings usually trusted, but "general audiences" is increased to FRK+ because of original BtVS/AtS series' ratings. Occasional stronger ratings given when chance glances show they're needed. The "F-bomb" requires FRMA, no matter how it's used, as does graphic depiction of violence. Just covering my BFB. :-)

The Sunnydale Herald Newsletter - Sunday, June 28th

Bartender: "We don't get your kind much."
Host: "Excuse me?"
Bartender: "Demons. We get a couple now and then but they're usually vampires passing for human."
Host: "Well, I never pass on anything, mister, especially when it comes with a little umbrella in the glass."

~~Happy Anniversary~~
