    Summary

    Buffy is ashamed of him, Spike knows. But when no one else is around, she touches him like she could love him.

    (In which Spike makes a damn good cup of coffee, watches a sunrise or two, and plays confidant to a Slayer who thinks dying to save the world would've been easier than this.)

    Summary

    Trent Crimm might only recently be an independent journalist, but he's had no one to rely on but himself for far, far longer. And most days, it feels like he's barely keeping it together. So it only seems fitting that the conclusion to the worst period of his life is for the whole thing to go up in literal flames. 

    Luckily for Trent, help comes from a (not so) unexpected source.

    Summary

    Here's the deal: Buffy's got no idea how to beat Glory, or how they're gonna book it across the country in a moldy RV without anyone killing each other, especially now that someone broke one of the beds—and the thought of going home again kinda makes her wanna cry.

    The one thing she knows is that Spike would follow her anywhere, even like this.

    Summary

    As Lucifer walked across the room towards the Detective's desk, he noticed that the figure sitting there was definitely not the Detective. The figure was quite a bit smaller, and much more inclined to sticky hands and impulsive hugs. She, however, didn't seem to notice him and was rather subdued. He thought it was strange to see her so unlike her usually happy and (unfortunately for him) clingy self. So much so, in fact, that he found himself making his way over to her and asking (without thinking or really even being conscious of the act), "What's wrong, child?"

    Beatrice Decker jumped and tried to smile at him when she realized who had approached her. "Hi, Lucifer..." she said instead of answering his question.

    "Yes," he replied absently, trying to think about anything else but the child in front of him (he couldn't). He watched as she looked down at the table; she didn't even try to hug him as she usually did. "Spawn," he called to get her attention. When she looked up at him, he found himself kneeling down to her level. "What's the matter, darling?" he asked, his voice gentle and soft (so unusual when applied anyone who wasn't his Detective).

    Summary

    "Morgana would know Guinevere anywhere. Had she heard anything at all before her voice, she would have recognized her by her footsteps, by her breath, so entrenched was she within Morgana’s heart.
    But Morgana knew she could never be the same to her.
    She would almost rather live knowing Gwen would never know so that she never had to face the risk of change.
    Her path was a lonely one. And that was the best she could ask for."

    Or

    After fleeing from her sanctuary with the druids, Morgana feels cursed. Destruction always seems to follow in her wake, and few to none are able or willing to care for her in her entirety. But the one person who could change her lonely destiny finds her in her misery.
