In other news, I am ass-deep in writing my thesis proposal, which is due tomorrow afternoon. Ha, um, we'll see. I'm not feeling so great about it. Also reading about Post Traumatic Growth, while interesting, is equally depressing.
I randomly wrote about 1300 words of a new Spike/Dawn fic. It totally came out of nowhere. I have about 13 fic ideas on my queue that are in various stages of being written or just jumping around in my brain, and guess what? This wasn't one of them! I can certainly give credit to athenewolfefor the inspiration though. Although the fic-to-be doesn't exactly meet your request guidelines (or, at all really since it's not too dark), the prompt did get me thinking about the pair of them.
I've also been thinking about the Spike/Gwen, Spike/Dru, and Spike/Fred fics. Consequently that means I have not been thinking about my seasonal_spuffy entry, which remains at a pitiful 800 words. Oopsie, and my posting date is October 23rd. Yup, that will be interesting too.
