The Raven Banner

Previous Parts:
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five


Timeline: Season Five, BtVS in the middle of I was Made to Love You. In that millisecond of time between April powering down and Buffy's talk with Xander. It’s a tight squeeze, I know!

Summary: There is a Valkyrie missing in Sunnydale, can Buffy stop arguing with Spike long enough to find her and avert yet another apocalypse?

Notes: Written for noaluvjames who wanted a Buffy/Spike speed-dating story and who originally sparked off the idea. I hope this cheers you up. Also dedicated to hesadevil who isn't well. Get better soon. Anyone mystified by all the Norse Mythology, feel free to ask.

Thanks to hesadevil, calove, beanbeans, amybnnyc and sandy_s, between us we should have got this story (long)ship-shape.

Just loved this! You had me from this line: "She just had time to plaster on her best dazzling, yet insincere, smile for the next guy, who at first glance, was really drop dead... Spike." Wonderful Buffy voice throughout. And your characterization of Spike is so perfectly tuned to where he was at this point in canon. Loved the Norse stuff, as well as your wonderful imagery--the "mayfly sparks" from the falling cigarette, and the iridescent silk of the banner, for example. There are so many wonderful lines, it's hard to single out just one, but I really enjoyed the visual humor of this: "The demon went to protest, but stopped as Spike mouthed the word 'Slayer' at him. 'Hey! Take it. It's yours.'" Great story!


Thanks for reading, and enjoying!

Yeah, I don't like my Spike too nice. There's still a bit of evil in there.

Can't keep away from the old imagery!
