Title: The Vamp Around the Corner
Word Count: 7850 in 3 chapters
Characters: Buffy, Spike, Joyce, Dawn, Willow, Tara
A/N: Takes place in an AR wherein Buffy was called to Slayerhood according to schedule, but did not move to the Hellmouth until her freshman year of college. NOT a Wishverse fic. Many thanks to shapinglight for betaing, though she can't be blamed for changes that happened after her read-through. Contains dialogue swipes from BtVS. I do not own…yada…strictly not for profit…yada…
Summary: When the Slayer's family moves house in her second year of college, a new neighbor swiftly becomes all she wants for Christmas. His wants are decidedly more complicated.
CHAPTER 1 / CHAPTER 2 / CHAPTER 3
Inspiration for this came from lutamira, who put up a list of tropes and asked for characters and pairings to go with them. I decided I wanted to see Spike and Buffy in a "next door neighbor AU", while retaining their vamp/slayer natures. One shower later, I had what I deemed to be a workable idea. You may judge for yourself whether you agree.
