Your friendly neighborhood travelling drunk. Is this what a bio is supposed to be?

Okay, in all seriousness, I've adored BtVS since I was 16 (25 now), to the point that I dressed up as Spike for Halloween in my freshman year of uni (I bleached my hair guys), own the DVD box set, and met James Marsters at comiccon. Only jumped into fic recently after starting a job that actually gives me time to write again, but I've been a writer forever.

Writing-wise, you can expect angst and comedic banter from me, a fair bit of Scooby-love, and tiny bits of fluff in amounts that are bearable for my blackened heart. I am also your resident Xander fan so be warned; the doctors have yet to confirm whether it's contagious.

Summary: Over the summer following Buffy’s death, Dawn tells Spike that maybe Buffy didn’t despise him as much as he thought. So, when she comes back and the Scoobies barge in, Spike stays. 

Starts out with a lot of grieving, but I promise it gets lighter as the chapters go on.
