Birthday greetings and a drabble.

Happy birthday elcazavampiros


Here is a stupid little 100-word drabble, set during ‘After Life’. Not specifically a birthday fic, unless you want it to be. Rating PG.


Soul Music



“Wherever I was,” Buffy told Spike, “I was happy. At peace.”

Spike gazed at her with his eyebrows raised.

“I knew that everyone I cared about was all right. I knew it,” Buffy went on. “Time didn’t mean anything, and there was music. Songs by Dingoes Ate My Baby, only with someone else on lead guitar, not Oz, and I was singing vocals. And I was boinking groupies, only like I was the guy, which was weird but, hey, kind of fun.”

Spike’s eyebrows climbed even higher. “You don’t mean … ?”

“Yeah, Spike,” Buffy confirmed. “I think I was in Devon.”

Doesn't she mean, "I think I was in Deeeee-von"? :)

Hee! Yet another terrific drabble!

In "After Life" she said "Heaven" in a reasonably normal voice. It was later, especailly in OMWF, that she started drawing it out for 147 days.

Thank you!

Took me a while, I haven't watched much early BtVS so don't know enough about The Dingoes.

Very groanworthy ;)

I was off thinking about cream teas for a moment there...

Actually cream teas was where I started with this one, but I thought that American's wouldn't understand the reference, and then I remembered the other Devon.

Ooh. Baaad pun.

Yes, it is.

This made my day. I'm a sucker for puns, so I'm friending you. I'm pretty new to lj.

Thanks! Glad to have you on board.

If you check out my Memories there are a lot more puns in my stories, especially in the Drabbles.

I must confess that I didn't get it. Fortunately, google came to the rescue. Now I can add another groan to your responses.

And no doubt, if Devon had known, he would've liked it very much.

He might have preferred to be in Buffy.

*grin* And Happy New Year to you, too! (What's a Grocer's Apostrophe?)
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: January 6th, 2006 09:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks!

A Grocer's Apostrophe (probably more correctly a Greengrocer's Apostrophe) is when a superfluous apostrophe is inserted when adding an 's' to a word to make it plural. The name comes from the habit of greengrocers (fruit and vegetable shops) of making that mistake when displaying prices and offering for sale apple's, oranges', onion's and cabbage's.

It is becoming more and more prevalent as educational standards fall.

In my case it was a typo, but it was very embarassing!

Hee hee hee...I'm friending you for the Auld Lang Syne story, among other things (such as the fact I have your fic in my bookmarks and have had it there for a while now...) But I"m commenting here. This was funny! And I too went "cream teas" at first...
