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."
