Fic: Mysteries of the Kitchen

Title: Mysteries of the Kitchen
Author: Rebcake
Rating: R (for toys) — Don't try this at home, kids.
Word Count: 380
Pairing: Spike/Buffy
Summary: My entry in today’s impromptu “Buffy slays something with a kitchen implement and has sex with Spike afterwards” ficathon. What more is there to say?
Ficathon notes: Apparently, it’s all the fault of gabrielleabelle and penny_lane_42. As if that surprises anyone. Follow these links for entries from:
angearia Kitchen Battle Royale
beer_good_foamy Pull Out The Pin

“What is that thing, anyway?” asked Buffy, wiping the hair out of her eyes with the back of one wrist and pointing at the offending object.

“Rugalach demon, pet,” said Spike from the kitchen door, where he had appeared just as the commotion on the porch died down.

“No, I mean this thing.” She bent over and yanked on the handle of the mystery object, which came loose from the dead demon’s chest with a squelching sound.

Spike took it from her and held it up for a closer look. It was wide but slightly pointy, with vertical channels and a knobby handle.

“Right. Let’s get it cleaned up a bit.” He skirted around the overturned utensil drawer and headed for the sink.

Buffy righted the drawer and began to refill it from the jumble on the floor. “I don’t know what half of this stuff is. I mean, what could this possibly be for? Is it even necessary?” She gestured with a small device that seemed to consist of four tiny holes and a handle.

Spike turned from the sink, shaking the excess water off the knobby thing. “That is a zester, Slayer. For getting the zest off lemons and whatnot. And this, love, is a reamer.” He held it out to her, rounded point up, tongue peeking between his teeth. “For the juice.”

“You are so full of it, Spike.”

“I could be.” He waggled his brows.

“That’s just…” She stopped, flushing. “Um, you did say ‘reamer’, right?”

“Right.”

“Seriously?”

“Dead.”

He looked at her expectantly. She took the reamer and hefted it in her palm, then tucked it into her back pocket with a smile.

“Let’s stash Rug Lock here out behind the shed.” She picked up the demon by what passed for its armpits. Spike shrugged, then picked up its feet. They maneuvered down the porch steps. “Then we’ll see if we can squeeze any juice from a vampire.” He nearly dropped his end. He wasn't sure he liked the glint in her eye. Well, he did, but she didn't need to know that.

“I’m starting to rethink this plan…”

“It’s either that or the zester, mister.”

“They say I’m evil.”

“Not lately, they don’t.”

“Oi, no need to get nasty.”

“You know you love it …”

And on it went, until they found something more interesting to do with their mouths.

FIN


A/N: Check out this visual aid. I’m not exactly sure which one was in the Summers-Pratt kitchen, though those wooden ones look extremely dangerous. Just for fun, get a load of the center one in the third row! I had to check that I was really in the Home and Garden section and not “novelties”. Wowsa!

I wish you could see me laughing. I really, really do. Naughty!

And I'm blissfully proud to take partial credit for this little impromptu fic-a-thon.

Hee! It's the pictures, isn't it? I was really afraid to search "reamer" on the interwebs, because who knows what might pop up, but I figured Amazon wouldn't be too out there. Wrong!

Thanks for commenting, darling.

Hey! He started it, with his peeking tongue and waggly eyebrows. I mean, what's a girl supposed to do?

:raised eyebrow:

That's some reamer.

I was shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

MiAmor thinks I should make an icon out of it, though.

Hee! And extra points for visual aids. Whoa.

Glad to get a grin! I really had no idea that reamers were so advanced...but that's why we have the very educational internet, right?

I was going to say that that's a very unorthodox use of a reamer, until I read Wikipedia:

Grasping the fruit in one hand and the reamer in the other, the user (...) grinds out the inside with a twisting wrist motion until nearly all of the juice is extracted. This dislodges the seeds and some amount of pith, so the juice must generally be strained before use.


...Woah. Wikiporn. "Dislodges the seeds" indeed. Spike is a bit of a pervert, Buffy makes him put his money where his mouth is (...so to speak), it takes a lot to shock a vampire slayer, and I'm laughing uncontrollably over here. Great addition.

ETA: Reading that back, it sounds a lot bloodier and more, ahem, intrusive than when I thought it. Ouch. Sorry.

There are many ways this could go that make me wince, but the seeds and pulp are really too much. Thanks for that, beer. As you say, it's a good thing he's such a pervert, but she's no angel, either. I suspect it'll all turn out slightly less sinister in the end. Heh.

Even so, some of the pointier models are cringe-worthy indeed, but the stubby little lime reamer looked almost friendly (in comparison)! But Buffy's always been a gal who worked with the tools on hand...

Funny if you think of it! but after beer_good's explanation, please put a "Don't try it at your home" disclaimer (just to be sure)
rebcake

Don't try it at your home

Hoo boy! Ain't that the truth! Unless you have a naughty vampire around, it's probably better to keep out of the kitchen when you've got the bedroom on your mind. Most household accidents...

That was deliciously suggestive. And glad I could see what a reamer looked like.;)

Some of those reamers are pretty scary! But Spike and Buffy are very brave (and not a little twisted). Thanks for commenting!

Oh my, I didn't know those existed! LOL, great fic!
rebcake
Feb. 25th, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
Hee! There are many, many arcane kitchen implements, with mysterious purposes. I say this as someone who owns both a butter bell AND a potato ricer. Also, a zester. I do not have a hand-held reamer, however. That may change...

Thanks for commenting, darling!

Heee! The more I read the more I'm convinced that my kitchen could be a perfect place for shooting a porn movie! :)

Thanks for the laugh! :)

Thanks for commenting, darling! I like to think that we fic writers are just as ingenious about using the materials at hand as Buffy herself! This little ficathon might prove it!

You win extra ficathon points for finding the *dirtiest* kitchen implements...

Eh. Anything is dirty if you say it right. It's the old "You're the one showing me dirty pictures, doc," joke. Or, possibly not. Heh.

*waves extra points*

*assigns a triple score to beer_good_foamy for the 3-way crossover*

The management is not responsible any consequential or incidental damages, whether foreseeable or not, which may result from the inappropriate application of kitchen utensils to your vampire.

If only!

I'll never look at my reamer the same way again. *skips off to make a lemon pie*
rebcake
Feb. 25th, 2010 07:42 pm (UTC)
Mmmmm. Pie. See? Anything is dirty with the right perspective.

Sorry if I ruined your reamer for you. Or, perhaps I made it into a new favorite? *hopes*
aerintine
Feb. 26th, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
Don't worry, it is now my favorite item in the kitchen. Next to the wine rack, of course. :D

WIN! :)

Reamer...

o.0

...kinky.

Well, the beater just seemed redundant...

I've always thought reamers were just butt plugs put to practical use...
rebcake
Feb. 26th, 2010 05:01 am (UTC)
You put it so succinctly! Of course, who am I to say which application is the more practical? No reamer here, no ma'am.

I love it, though we just call them "hand lemon squeezers", which sounds much less kinky! I do love a bit of naughty Spuffy.

Friending you, if that's OK - we seem to be "meeting" all over the place anyway!
rebcake

hand lemon squeezers

We colonials are so lazy and direct. Why use three words when one will do, especially if it can also work as a double entendre?

Friend away! We will be forever united in our love for naughty Spuffy!
