Spike Drabble - Who's The Winner?

Spike in bed

Here is another of the Drabbles I promised, here if you missed the meme. shinybaum asked for a drabble about Spike and a clipboard ...

It is longer, being 236 words long, and is set in Season 4, during "Where The Wild Things Are" ... and is beta'd by kudagirl 


Who's The Winner?

"Right I'm off to find the drink!" With those words Spike walked confidently across the room of Lowell House, leaving a surprised Anya and Xander in the doorway.

Although he swaggered among the people, inside he was worried that the apparent fog would wear off and he would be noticed as the missing Hostile 17.

"Drink" he muttered to himself as he spotted a table set round a corner in the quietest corner. Once there he approved the soldier's taste and poured himself a tumbler of JD and leant against the wall taking in the surrounding spectacle.

As he relaxed he knocked something off the wall, and bending to pick it up he saw it was one of the many sheets of lists that military people seem to collect. Hanging back the clipboard on its pin he spotted The Slayer's name in some of the boxes, and tracking across the rows he noticed it was aligned to the slot where Riley's name was. Puzzled he studied the sheet further and found that the top row was a list that made the Kama Sutra look polite.

For the first time ever Spike envied Riley. The Initiative may spend their working days mutilating Demons, but in the spare time, they found more interesting ways to make use of army equipment.

An army score sheet, with a difference ... and it looked as if Buffy would be the winner.

Hmm...you would think it would make Spike mad to see Buffy's name on a score card about sex. Too bad he didn't show it to Buffy. She would be ticked off seeing this. If she had, the break up with Riley might not have bummed her out so badly.

You have a typo in this sentence:

Puzzled he studied the sheet further and found that the top row was a list that mad the Kama Sutra look polite.

Think you meant to type made instead of mad.

Thank's for the edit - it is now changed.

Yes, when I was thinking about this I wondered whether I would extend it, so have Spike show Buffy - but this is season 4 ... Spike is not as emotionally involved with the Scoobies yet ... I suppose it could become the start of a longer fiction which would save her from a lot of heartache.

No, but I think he was emotionally involved with Buffy. He just hadn't realized it yet. If you expanded this, this could be the moment he realizes he does have feelings for her.

Now tell me, my oh so innocent friend. Just how do you know about the Kama Sutra?

It was part of the problem of keeping it short - but I will try to get some more written, as that was my underlying feeling that he would be upset on Buffy's behalf.

As to the Kama Sutra ... must be the friends I have!!!!!!

:D Aw, I quite liked Riley.
22nd-Jan-2010 08:14 pm (UTC)
*g* - I was not a Riley fan, as I'm a Spuffy fan (as you know) ... but the idea of where he would find a clipboard, that I could talk about in a few words led me here!

See - Riley was no good for her!
22nd-Jan-2010 11:24 pm (UTC)
But I bet she had fun with her list :D:D:D
23rd-Jan-2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
Just wonder whether Spike decides to add anything to the list?

A naughty drabble \0/
22nd-Jan-2010 08:15 pm (UTC)
LOL - Must be the friends I have!!!

Not such a strait laced Iowa farm boy even then. Nice.
22nd-Jan-2010 08:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks - I always knew that Riley was worse than he tried to portray!

Yes, this was part of my problem - it was meant to just be 100 words and I more than doubled it ... but have had a positive response, so really must get some more written.

However, it would be with a Spuffy element ... as that is the way my brain runs!

Oh oh lovely and suggestive !!
23rd-Jan-2010 05:27 pm (UTC)
LOL - glad you enjoyed it!
24th-Jan-2010 09:20 pm (UTC)
Hee! A list of what they got up to! Naughty!
24th-Jan-2010 10:02 pm (UTC)

A lot of people are hoping I will continue this (you have been warned!)

I always knew that farm boy act was just an act! Wonderful drabble.

LOL - Couldn't resist, as I'm not really a Riley fan, but accept that they were together for quite a time.

I think this is my only specifically non-Spuffy fic!
