Sunnydale After Dark
Summary:

Written for the 2024 “Short & Spuffy” Drabble Event. 
Crack Fic! 

Spike is a terrible house guest, and some of the Scoobies are learning that truth the hard way. What happens when Joyce eventually agrees to take him in and let him crash in the basement at Revello Drive? 
I wish I knew the answer to that, but the prompts will decide everything. 

Ready, Set, Drabble!

Story Notes: Set in S4, some time after “Something Blue” but before “Hush” and going wildly off canon for fun shenanigans... may the prompt wheel be merciful! 
Part of the “Domestic Unbliss” series, which is also home to the first drabble fic in this crack verse: “The Home Invasions.” 
 
The stories are NOT related, so there is absolutely no need to know what happened there.
