No More Mister Nice Guy
I've done another entry in kallysten's 2005 Drabble Challenge. Crossposted there; comments, if any, here. 100 words, Spike/Buffy, during "Chosen", rating PG-13 for mild language, character death. As usual I diverge slightly from canon.

No More Mister Nice Guy



“Gotta move, lamb. I think it’s fair to say, school’s out for the bloody summer.” Spike grinned broadly even though he was starting to burn.

“Your famous last words are from Alice Cooper?” Buffy rolled her eyes. “How lame is that?”

“Hey!” Spike protested. “Alice Cooper’s not lame. ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ was sodding brilliant. Now, Marilyn Manson’s lame.”

“Is not!” Buffy contradicted him. “I mean, ‘Tainted Love’! It’s totally great.”

“It’s a bleeding cover!” Spike pointed out. “The Soft Cell version blows it away.”

“So?”

They were still bickering when Spike combusted totally and the roof fell in on Buffy.

And they go out the way they started.

It would have been fun, and would have made "Chosen" much more rewatchable.

Now THAT? Was in character. Sodding brilliant.

With just her stylish yet affordable ruby slippers peeking out from the edge of the collapsed High School.

Hilarious. Gotta say, I'm with Spike - Soft Cell all the way :-)

The bitter edge to the vocals in the Soft Cell version, with their undercurrents of betrayal and despair, are very evocative of the S6/S7 Spike/Buffy relationship to me.

Marilyn Manson just snarls them out with generic anger aimed at nothing in particular.

LOL! And isn't that a perfect ending? Spike and Buffy bickering. :)

It's all they've ever done. Well, apart from the odd bit of dancing and a few shags.

Actually, I can see this happening with no stretching of my imagination whatsoever.

In the last seconds, as the ground starts to give way beneath Buffy's feet:

"Okay, Spike, you've converted me. I think Alice Cooper and Soft Cell are great and Marilyn Manson is lame."

"No you don't, but thanks for saying it."

Ahhh, true love!

If I deigned to use acronyms I would have to say "lol" because I really am....

*replays it in her head and laughs again*

Glad you liked it.

Oh, god - I would have enjoyed that ending so much more!

Plus there would have been less in the way of embarrassing howling and uncontrolable sobbing... except with laughter.

Yes, it would have been fun, wouldn't it?
