snickfic: (Spike Dawn friendless)
[personal profile] snickfic
For icon text winner [ profile] angearia, who requested Anya and Spike bonding, with optional bonus Dawn. Hope you like, hon, though it ended up with less bonding and more angst than I meant.

“Vamp in charge here,” argued Spike. “I’ll order.” Because if pizza mattered, then something mattered, even when...

“I have a concussion,” said Anya, “and I’m bruised in many uncomfortable places. I should get to choose.”

“I’m the one taking care of you lot,” said Spike. While the others grieved by killing things. “It's babysitter’s prerogative.”

“You don’t even need to eat.”

“Technicality,” said Spike. “Besides, I’ve got seniority. Barbeque.”

“I’m over eleven hundred years old. Sicilian chicken.”

“I'm as old as the world,” whispered Dawn from the couch. They were the first words she’d spoken since breakfast.

They had pepperoni.

Ah! This is brilliant. I love that it's the immature argument over seniority that gets Dawn to speak up.

I love you for prompting for this, by the way.

LOL! When I thought of it including Dawn, I immediately knew you would love it, too. How can you not love the outsiders bonding? Inconceivable!

funny and touching-- I got just a little teary there at the end.

And I must be hungry, because it's not 10 am, and the sicilian chicken sounds really good...

This clicks on so many levels for me. A) I like Anya-Spike sniping. B) I like Spike the somewhat abrasive caretaker. C) I like Dawn still grappling with her identity. So, you know, in general, me likey.

Well done indeed. :)

Great change of pace there - all surface fun till the memories can't be held back any more.

I’m bruised in many uncomfortable places. I should get to choose.

Yes, Anya, I think you should, in a world where physical pain trumps emotional. That world is not the Buffyverse however, so the key takes it!

Wonderful. Funny and sad, a winning combo. Like pepperoni and pineapple!

Oh, oh, oh! That ending. You kill me. I love your Dawn. I love your Spike. I love your Anya. And all of them together? With the beginning all silly but with that hint of sadness with the mattering and then the gut-punch at the end? Fabulous.
