Stars in the Bright Sky Chapter Two

Hi and here is the second part of my old Christmas story, Stars in the Bright Sky.

Recap: Christmas Eve and Buffy is torn between wanting Spike and keeping him away from the Scoobies over the festive season. But Spike shutting her out and not wanting her is a different thing! Determined to discover what secret he has from her, she follows him back to the crypt, only to discover that he has a victim in there and that she might be forced to kill him. She finds Spike covered in blood and a young girl on his bed - a girl in the final stages of labour.

Chapter Two:

Without thinking, Buffy reached out and grasped the young girl’s hand as she groaned under her contraction. Then she gently pulled down the remnants of her skirt over her thighs and turned to where Spike sat on the other side of the bed. For a second or two, she couldn’t even find the words, then, “Spike, who is she? What the hell is going on? She’s having a baby!”

The vampire raised a rather weary eyebrow at her. “Hey, guessed that all by myself, Jessica Fletcher! It was difficult, but the big stomach, pain, groans, blood - gave the game away.”

Buffy glared at him, then turned to the girl. “Hey,” she said gently, pushing her dark hair back from her sweaty forehead. “Who are you?”

The girl squeezed her hand. “Lucy,” she muttered, then shut her eyes as if speaking the one word had been too much to bear.

“Spike, how long as she been like this? She needs to be in hospital.”

“No! No hospital!” The pressure on Buffy’s hand increased seven fold.

A very long time ago, I wrote this Christmas story for someone - and I can't remember who! Hope they don't mind me posting it here. And apologies for any huge mistakes. I was younger then!

I will post second part tomorrow.

Title: Stars in the Bright Sky
Rating: Oh, it gets a bit more explicit in 2nd chapter!

Chapter One: Shut Out

“Who’s that for?” Buffy asked suspiciously. The table was covered with cards and paper, ribbon and glitter. Dawn had decided to tackle all her gift wrapping in one go. The mess was amazing. She was busy folding a black T-shirt and her sister had a very good idea whose Christmas present that was.

“It’s just a little something for Spike,” Dawn jabbed sticky tape over the paper.

“Dawn, he’s a vampire. I don’t think they do Christmas. Religious festival, peace on earth, goodwill to mankind, remember. Vamps and goodwill – not mixy.”

“He can still have a present,” Dawn said stubbornly. “I don’t expect you to ask him for Christmas dinner. Oh, do you reckon he’ll be on his own?” She looked suddenly anxious.

Buffy pulled a face. The whole gang were coming over on Christmas Day, although she was working right up to midnight on Christmas Eve at the Double Meat. Everyone was bringing something towards the meal so she wouldn’t have to cook and she knew that throwing Spike into the mix would not make for the relaxed, happy time she was expecting. “No, he’ll probably either go and get very drunk at Willie’s or have Clem round and watch old movies on the TV and get very drunk at home. Like lots of guys at this time of year.”

Dawn looked at her. “You sound so nasty about Christmas. I know it will be sad without Mom, but don’t you enjoy it even a little bit?”

Okay, given a chance to rec my old Spike stories, what would I pick?

Since I didn't post a holiday story this year, how about Please Forgive Me So I Can Lose the Ears, where Spike and Buffy get some help making up.

There's also this yarn!Spike story where Spike realizes he's missing something real important. Oh, and he's watching the same episode I've just rewatched! *huge grin*

I made one for Spike and the New Year -

Bless You All and I while we know life is never all going to bring happiness and peace I send all my hopes that this new year we be more of Good than it will totally suck.

We always have the Buffyverse to give us great drama and characters to look on.

Title: Spike and Saint Nicholas
Medium: art

As a companion piece to my Satanklaas vid, here is a very simple graphic I made for BuffyTube several years ago. (Just meant to be funny, not artistic.) It shows Spike doing what kids tradtionally do for Saint Nicholas: putting their shoes in front of the chimney, filled with carrots or other treats for the Saint's horse, and singing traditional Saint Nicholas songs. During the night, Saint Nicholas' helper comes down the chimney to retrieve the carrots and replace them with presents.
