Just doing a little housekeeping and bringing home my Seasonal Spuffy entries from the past spring. I plumb forgot about them!

Disclaimer: Spike and Buffy are not mine. I'm just gonna borrow them for, like, five minutes, mmkay?
A/N: Here are thirteen Spuffycentric haiku snapshots from "Something Blue" in four parts. Written for the Spring 2008 round of [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] enigmaticblues for organizing this round and also to Mister Beta and [livejournal.com profile] philips for their unerring good judgment. And a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] blondebitz for the beautiful banner!
Feedback warms the cockles of my heart. (Heh-heh. I said "cockles.")

Acrimony

I.
Slayer bares her neck;
chained vampire longs to see her
exsanguinated.


II.
“Whole bunch of stones,” huh?
Yeah, she’ll die for a good slay.
Wait—am I kneeling?!


--


Matrimony

I.
Irony: William
never dared hope to marry.
Vampire takes the plunge.


II.
Slayer says yes, beams--
his memories of sunlight
instantly eclipsed.


III.
Scoobies scandalized
by mind-frying displays of
unremitting schmoop.


IV.
Fought for ten minutes
over hyphenated names.
The Big-Pile-of-Dusts?


V.
Fifteen minutes more
holed up in the Watcher’s loo.
White wedding? Barely.


--


Love Was Phony

I.
O! happy couple:
the only two amongst them
untouched by the spell.


II.
Amidst the skirmish
they grapple with hands and mouths—
then, befuddlement.


III.
Spike lips! Lips of Spike!!
Love transmogrifies into
abomination.


IV.
Horror: BLOODY HELL!!
He bickered with the Slayer
over cake toppers.


--


Goodbye, Honey

I.
Fond memories of
slipping a hand up her shirt
confuse enmity.


II.
Lingering effects:
forbidden dream trysts set to
"Wind Beneath My Wings."

Contentment and smiles
Nothing short of a good time
I just hope for more!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


*happy sigh* Aw, you haiku'd! Rawk on! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed them.

BTW, I'm headed towards xmas break and hope to go on a fic bender. I've been meaning to friend you forever so that I can read your stuff, and yesterday, I stopped by and saw your Spike Figaro icon and knew that I should not put it off another moment. Srsly, I probably looked like I was having a seizure at my desk trying not to cackle out loud. So much fabulousness.

You should see my Sprocket!Spike icon!

In fact, I'll show you right now! Hey, look! Here it is!

I hope you like some of my fics and I'll add you to the kink filter so you don't miss out on any. (I believe you found me through my sister, no?)

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


HAHAHAHAHA!! Das is wunderbar!

Thank you kindly, ma'am. *passes plate* Yes, I'd like some kink, please.

Yep. This is my first year in the fandom (hell, this is my first fandom!) and I'm still gradually tracking down the fic. Imagine my joy at discovering that La Stoney has a Spuffy-writing sis! :D

These made my day.

Well, you just made mine! I'm thrilled that they were laugh-inducing. :D

From: [identity profile] rebcake.livejournal.com


I'm afraid I can't pick favorites, this time. Maybe the entire "Matrimony" section? Of course, I love the funny: cake toppers! Big-Pile-of-Dusts! Mind-frying displays!. It's comedy gold, baby. Thanks for posting this for us newbies.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Heee! Thank you--your comments are a delight. I had so much fun writing these; I was flat on my back with spinal ishoos and high off my ass on pills at the time, and it probably shows.

From: [identity profile] stars-of-tears.livejournal.com


This was very cute
Funniest thing I have read
In a long long while

(yeah, I'm a haiku cheater ;))

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Aww, thank you! I'll take a haiku any way I can get it. ;)

From: [identity profile] dragonflylady77.livejournal.com


I just friended you after I read this your Something Blue Spaiku, after prompting from [livejournal.com profile] stars_of_tears because I loved it so much and I want to read more of this you write.

Sorry not making much sense, I'm really tired and late too.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thank you for reading and commenting and friending! I'm so glad that you enjoyed them. And you make perfect sense. ;)

From: [identity profile] missus-grace.livejournal.com


I don't know if I read these the first time around, so thanks for the repeat!

Loved this:
Scoobies scandalized

unremitting schmoop.


Spuffy schmoop is the BEST!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thanks, sweetie! I was laid up with that stupid back injury, and I distinctly remember giggling while I wrote that one. Ahh, those were good pills. ;)

It is indeed!

(Sorry, but you've made a typo in the last header: "Goodbye Honey"

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Heeee! Your giggles are making me giggle; between the clapping hands and the falling snow, your comment is like a little party. *throws confetti* And OMG, thank you for pointing that out! I was cutting and pasting and hurriedly typing in headings at work and totally missed that.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Mwah! My mind love you right back. ;)

I was high on pills for that damned back injury when I wrote these, and I remember it being a fun little venture at the time. Glad it comes through!

From: [identity profile] louise39.livejournal.com


Love how you captured the essence of that episode - smoopy - funny - maybe a little sadness at the end.

Thank you so much! I always feel sorry for them at the end; it was probably the only time in the whole series that either of them was perfectly happy.

Yay! I can't remember if I read these the first time, but they were entertaining either way! Love "The Big-Pile-of-Dusts" and "White wedding? Barely." Ooh, and "cake toppers"! LOL!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thank you! I probably had more fun writing these than any other batch. (Also, the mister and I have one of those crazy hyphenated names, so that one was kind of a gimme. *g*) I'm glad you had fun, too!

Yah. Me, too. My first impression of that episode was, "Spike/Buffy=icky." But now I go back and, you know? Hindsight really doesn't improve the schmoop that much.

Fifteen minutes more

White wedding? Barely.


Bwa ha ha.

Spike lips! Lips of Spike!!
Love transmogrifies into
abomination.


Transmogrifies! I've read a haiku with transmogrifies in it! Woo hoo!

They're all fabulous, though. And the "Goodbye, Honey" section is possibly the most understated and yet right description of the aftereffects that I've seen.

BTW, I recced you yesterday.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thank you for your lovely feedback! I was hoping to get at the absurdity of the situation but also a hint that even this corny spell-induced romp had a few little irreversible consequences. And thanks you also for the rec. :D

*scrambles off to check it out*

From: [identity profile] diachrony.livejournal.com


Cake toppers and "Wind Beneath My Wings" ... heh heh.

Your spaiku are delicious sexy little nibbles!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


I love the idea of Spike being tormented with sentimental memories of wedding planning.

And wow, that's a delicious compliment. Thank you, sweetie! I'm thrilled that you think so. :D

From: [identity profile] c-woodhaven.livejournal.com


I'm just circling around to check these out!

They are made of awesome, as usual.

I can see Buffy's golden hair..er...bouncing...with this one!

Aw, thank you, sweetie! I had a lot of fun with these. I wrote them last spring when I was on the pain meds and remember actually giggling while I wrote them. Heh. Those must have been good drugs.

I can see Buffy's golden hair..er...bouncing...with this one!

Bwahahaa! I mean, for shame. I'm surprised at you. ;)

From: [identity profile] spikesdeb.livejournal.com


Bloody awesome! You are a word-wrangler of the highest order and I bow to your talent *bows* :)

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Aw, shucks. *blushes* These were a blast to write, and I'm thrilled that you enjoyed them. Thanks for letting me know! :D
