Merry Eve of Winter Holiday Of Your Choice

Title: The Next One, With No Snow
Author: mpoetess
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Challenge: "The Dark of Night"
Setting: December 24th, 1999; between Hush and Doomed


"The hell you doing out here, Harris?"

Out here, thermos of eggnog beside his sleeping bag. Refreshing holiday treat and handy blunt instrument. He doesn't use it. Yet. "The hell do you care, Spike? I untied you; take off. Bugger. Sod. Whatever you English types do."

Instead, Spike drops down. Steals a cookie, faster than Xander can smack. "Why bother? Can't bite, can't fight."

"My heart bleeds, except not. Have the bed, then. Merry Christmas."

"Them upstairs playing Carol of the Broken Bottles all night? Not bloody likely."

"And now you know what the hell."

"...right. Pass us the nog."

Hee! I'm more of a 'bugger off' English type myself. *g*

I deeply want to go to that tropical island with the Santa in your icon. Instead of going back to work tomorrow. ;-)

LOL! Oh, I know what you mean. Just as soon as I win the lottery I'm buying this island ::points to icon:: and opening a Spander-writing community. *g*

I can soooo hear their voices.

Loved it. Hope you had a good Christmas.

Eep! Poor puppy. Er, and poor you!

I spent Christmas evening crammed into a tiny house with two uncles, one aunt, five cousins, a grandmother (not mine), a mother (mine) and thirty five dogs. And didn't get to drink, because I was driving. And yet, fun was had.

Hmm, yes, poor me! Ack, not nice!

Five dogs? whoa. I thought coping with one was enough! Indiana wasn't satisfied with his own presents, he had to try and open everybody elses!

Glad you had fun, sweetie.
