When In Doubt, Make A List (Spike/Xander)

Title: When In Doubt, Make A List

Author: baudown

Pairing: Spike/Xander

Disclaimer: Not Mine

written for: open_on_sunday

Prompt: plus/minus

Word count: 100 (plus a photo)

Xander studied the list, frowning.  It was decidedly unbalanced.

In the minus column:

Uses up hot water, shampoo

Blood --  doesn't wash mugs, leaves rings, microwave FOUL

TV -- stolen cable (arrest, jail?), bogarts remote, soccer football boring!!!

Gross smells -- peroxide, nail polish, cigarettes, blood

Constant flirting (big ho)


Weirdly possessive


Stupid British slang

Bad moods -- like a fucking toxic cloud

Bad temper -- broken furniture, holes in wall

Friends (tell them!!!???) -- Willow (wigged?)  Giles (disgusted?)  Buffy (stakeage?)

In the plus column:


Behind him, husky-voiced:  "Come to bed, pet."

Xander crumpled the list into a ball.

Pretty much a no-brainer.

I always jump to when I see the tag Baudon. You never dissapoint. And art as well. What a hoot and a brilliant use of the prompt. :D

Thank you! This prompt just called to me.

But for some reason, it won't post on the open_on_sunday site. Hmmm.

I had trouble last week with the first drabble I did. I finally reposted it at the end of the week and it worked. LJ has been a stupid for me lately.

I'm glad it's not just me! I'll try again later or tomorrow.

Excellent, and kudos for the visual. Nice touch!

And double kudos for giving me an excuse to use the Spander icon. ;-)

Thank you!

And you know how I feel about that icon. Best. Icon. Ever.

I was so happy to find this icon! ;-)

Hee, that's lovely and the visual was just a bonus. Kudos hon!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I amused myself writing it.


Spike indeed</p>

'Nuff said

Like the man said -- a no-brainer!

Spander is always a no-brainer, of course

completely adorable.

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

Thank you! I had to do something light after all the dark I've been writing them lately.

Oh, yay! Thanks so much!

Hee! Love Xander's notes to himself about the cons.

Thank you! I had so many ideas for the con list that it was hard to choose. Glad you liked them!
