The Night Before Christmas

Firstly, thanks to sueworld2003 for keeping the community going another year. I'm not writing much (at all!) at the moment, but I've a few old stories to link to that I hope people will enjoy reading again.

I'll start with The Night Before Christmas.

This is the first story I ever wrote for the community, and the first detailing the legendary (so legendary, Joss failed to mention it), century-spanning epic battle of good(ish) vs evil between Spike and his arch-nemesis, Santa Claus.

Setting: BtVS season 5
Rating: PG.

Wonderful - you going back to your first entry. Off to read now and I love your work. All the way back to 2006 - how neat is that and how it shows the long lasting respect and devotion from the Buffyverse fandom and fanfic writers and readers.

Thank You - all the wonderful FF writers, artists and sites owners for all your work.

Super FUN -

Just one of the many lines I loved -

"Up yours!" Spike shouted after him, because you had to have the last word, didn't you? "Know what you need for Christmas, you fat git? A gym subscription, that's what!"

And it's OK for me to choose this one as I took my chubby little self off to the gym to do the "loose some weight" thing - and hey, I friggin lost some of it.

Good for you! It's such a tough thing to do, and Spike was being mean.

On the other hand, Santa in this fic is probably meaner. ;)

This was a delightful hoot. Love how you took that one "throw away" line from Anya and built a really enjoyable one shot out of it.

Lovely.

I just went and reread this one and it's as delightful as I remember from way back when I first read it, years ago. Got to love Spike trying to do the right thing (more or less). His upside-down conversation with Dawn is so much fun -- actually the whole fic is big fun.
