Drabble: Counting...

I couldn't survive Valentine's Day without the antidote. This years anti-Valentine is...

Counting… A drabble by Bogwitch


Five minutes to go. Twenty-three hours of waiting.

She isn’t coming. Spike knows that he should have guessed, but his stupid heart always hopes anyway.


Even if she does turn up now, it’s too late – some romantic she was.


He wonders if she’s been delayed. Perhaps something nasty decided tonight was good for a little mayhem.


It was more than sex, wasn’t it? He thought he’d meant something to her. Bloody women.


One minute and he’ll know.


Fine. Angel was right again; he was too optimistic to hope that Illyria would understand Valentine’s Day.

ETA: I forgot to say The canteen at work went all out today. We all had heart-shaped shortbread and all the women got a flower. I repressed my queasyness and partook of the free stuff. :)


Poor, poor Spike.

But lovely drabble! His heart is always on his sleeve.

I think he know it was a longshot.

most fun...except for Spike, clearly

Poor Spike, he keeps making the same mistakes.

Yay! There is not enough Spillyria fic in the world.

I've had a nightmare of a time thinking I could pair him with this year as I've already done Illyria, Harmony and Buffy Valentines fics/drabbles/events.

This started out as Buffy, but Illyria was funnier. :)

Poor Spike. He really knows how to pick 'em, don't he? *g*

Sometimes, a man just gets lonely...

So good! I actually thought it was about Buffy to the last line. :)

Hee. You fell into my cunning trap!

*snerk* Poor Spike. Always so optimistic.

And always picks the wrong ones!

Awww. He's a hopeless romantic, he is. Illyria, not so much. Great anti-Valentine.

I don't think she undestands the fudamentals - like showing up.

You got me. I thought it was Buffy. Hee. So Spike.

Hey. Free food is free food, heart shaped or not.

I couldn't resist that twist.

How could I refuse?

I love this! Poor little Spike, always choosing the crazy ones. :D

I also love, love, love your icon. Is it a sharable one? Ha! Did you notice how many times I used the word L-O-V-E in this comment? Tee-hee. A very merry un-Valentine's day to you, Miss Bogwitch. *kisses your cheek before darting for the door*

She's emotionally cold and distant, she's skinny and she's powerful, she has a superiority complex...

The icon is shareable, it was from my icon advent calendar.

Poor Spike, but definitely, Illyria doesn't seem to be of the romantic type. :)

She'll take him out to fight something and she'll forget all about it.

Boy, Spike knows how to pick 'em. *g*

Personally, between you and me, I think rather dodgy taste.

Ehehehe... that was unexpected!

Another falls into the trap!

Aw - poor Spike!
I read this yesterday, but LJ wouldn't let me comment on anything, only read things!

She'll turn up eventually and make it up with a tentacle or two.

You tease!
It was fun . Do you think Spike is the kind of guy wanting to celebrate Valentine ? Maybe with Drusilla , bringing her pretty girls all dressed up . ;-)


I think Spike would do whatever his girl wanted. But he must secretly hope...
