Drabbleness
(For this week's challenge at slashthedrabble)


Wake-Up Call.
Spike/Xander, PG.

Xander's making waffles. The scent drizzles slowly into Spike's cocoon of covers; he lies there baking in it. Warm blankets, warm bread, warm oil on the waffle iron. Xander's voice mangling what used to be a Rodgers and Hammerstein tune. Spike could -- should -- go out and join him. Juice and coffee and maple syrup poured into each little square. He should. Getting up in the morning; it's what people do.

But just another minute, just another chorus. Just waiting for--

Dip in the bed, arms round his waist. Warm, sweet breath on his cheek. "Breakfast is getting cold."

"Let it."

Boysenberry-maple, I think. Because Xander, like Dawn, can't get over the fact that syrup comes in kinds.

Lovely use of the warm/sweet theme throughout and so was the drabble.

I'm also craving waffles...and we don't have any maple syrup to go with.

Tasty drabble!

May I be under the covers snuggling with Spike and Xander now? Instead of the poorly-salaried alternative?

Sweet! Also, you just made me crave waffles.

Myself too. Which was stupid, because waffles have I none.

Yeah, I'm still craving. I might have to go 'borrow' a waffle maker from my mother.

Loving your icon, btw. It made me LOL.

I have no idea who this woman is; I found her on a random websearch for raccoon pictures. But I love her dearly.
