for [livejournal.com profile] lizziebuffy2008: Buffy, Spike (but really, it's all about Lorne)

Spike critiqued the dresses ("What, did the woman grown a fungus?") and Buffy played “Spot the vampire” (because really, what living thing could be that thin?). Plus, snuggle time.

Then Spike stiffened, wandering hands suddenly still. On screen were just more glammed-up starlets and one wacko stunt-costumed in green and horns – oh. “Demon?” Buffy asked.

“Friend,” he whispered. “Before.”

Before the battle. She’d heard those names, living and unliving both – mostly fallen, now. She could guess this one.

She nestled deeper under Spike’s arm. “Looks like he’s having fun.”

“Yeah. Glad of that.” Long, careful sigh. “They’d have been, too.”

No, not exactly what I had in mind...WAY BETTER!!! I was just going for the funny, but you got my much wanted Spuffy and some poignancy for fallen (and not) friends. Loved it!!

Oh, that's lovely, hon. I like the idea of Lorne having fun. He'd totally be in his element. Very poignant.

Also, I think these are the best words ever when it comes to Spike and Buffy: Plus, snuggle-time. *happy sigh*

Well, I love established relationship fic, so it's all the same to me!

“Friend,” he whispered. “Before.”

What an evocative moment. His emotion is so raw here, that it even halts his wandering hands!

I, too, hope that Lorne will find the fun, even if he's lost his friends. *pets him*

It actually seems a bit peculiar to me that Lorne doesn't reappear in more post-series fics.

Well, aside from the fact that he doesn't get paired romantically with anybody all that often (though the exceptions tend to be exceptional), I think it depresses people that he left on such a dire (and OOC) note. Sometimes those kinds of things can inspire people to fix things, but sometimes it just kills your spirit. *sniff*

That said, I think he has a big, cheerful role in the Angel comics (but I only read a handful of issues, so I'm probably missing something horrible.)
