One last story before we say goodbye to 2015. Another WIP down! The long-awaited, or perhaps long-forgotten, conclusion to a little noel_of_spike story!

Title: When You Wish Upon A Bar (4 of 4)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2125
Characters: Spike/Buffy, Dawn, D'Hoffryn
Setting: BtVS Season 6, after Wrecked, but before Older and Far Away. Also after AtS S3 The Vision Thing.
Summary: Spike isn’t getting what he really wants out of his secret “relationship” with Buffy, though things could be worse. Just his luck, D’Hoffryn has decided to celebrate Gurnenthar's Ascendance on the Hellmouth after a romantic disappointment of his own.

A cuckoo in the Christmas tree...





For those of you who'd like to know why it took so long...

I blame anaross.

Not that it's her fault. But while I was writing this I had just begun helping to put her stories up on AO3 and I came across one I hadn't read before, The Choice. As usual, it's a great story, but it pretty much made the same point I was hoping to go for with this Christmas ditty, only pointier. It's hard for me to work up any enthusiasm for treading over the same ground as my betters, so I had to psych myself up to finish this, with just one chapter to go. Hopefully, it's different enough. *fingers crossed*

The holidays have been lovely, if busy. I am looking forward to a long weekend without many obligations, even of the fic variety. Maybe I'll catch up on some entertainment. Maybe I'll take a walk among the trees or drag myself to a museum. Anything could happen!

I wish a wonderful New Year to you all!

Happy New year to you, too. I know that feeling (and so glad you're getting her stories up somewhere accessible) when someone much better than you are has written something you were thinking about doing. Got more than one abandoned one of those in my wip folder. lol

Will get to this over the weekend, here or on the BSV. Must get ready to leave for a while now.
