Here, finally, is the last of my requested drabbles. (So maybe it's a good thing I only got four requests... *g*)

Made a Lot of Stops
For [ profile] seapealsh: Spike&Joyce friendship

The first time, he sobbed his whiskey-sodden heart out. The second time he just scowled sullenly into his cocoa, wishing he had the fangs to eat her with.

But the third time, it came out that this woman with a taste for Nigerian tribal masks and French Modernism had barely been off the continent, had never seen Paris (smelly) or Giza (dry) or Machu Picchu (a bloody long ramble just to commune with rocks, however ‘wise’).

Whereas he had a century of travels to tell, and if she noticed him pausing to leave the corpses out, she didn’t mention it.

You made them so vibrant in a very few words, I loved this.

Excellent! I hate to think of Joyce never having traveled, but it's possible. She can't have been out of her 20s by the time Buffy came along. It's touching that Joyce bothered to ask about (and listen to) Spike's yarns. I know I'm fascinated. It's a big part of the appeal of fanfic!

Ooh, thank you, Snick! It's perfect. Can you just picture that? I have no doubt that they had many cocoa dates and discussed his travels.

Wonderful idea here. I'm such a sucker for Joyce and Spike, even though I know we didn't a huge amount of screen time for them together. This is just *so* plausible.
