Well, I've managed to miss three doll!fic-able occasions in the past week: Smut Goddess [livejournal.com profile] darklingdawns birthday (two words, people: Daddy's Girl. Holy mother of guh!), and the birthday of Her Serene Highness [livejournal.com profile] empresspatti. Well, that just won't do. Morgana's fic has helped me pass many a dull hour at work in a much more pleasant fashion, and Patti makes me blow tea out of my nose practically every time she posts. (Srsly, y'all, she's like Erma Bombeck on crack!) In my defense, though, I've been dealing with yet another bout of difficult times with the wee, mercurial talent who makes these greetings possible. As is so often the case with actors, sometimes the artist's inner demons (heh) interfere with his or her productivity. Yep, I'm afraid that doll!Spike has been hitting the sauce again. He'd had a decent run of sobriety until Valentine's Day when the doll!Buffys decided to have a girls-only party instead of a romantic evening in. The little plastic poet was disappointed about missing the opportunity to strew rose petals and spout verse at whichever Buffy would tolerate it, but it wasn't until he learned that armless!Angel would be at the girls' party that he really went off the rails. (The Buffys were planning to have a makeovers n' manicures sort of affair, and armless!Angel is a perfect canvas for practicing one's make-up skills!)

Consumed by jealousy, doll!Spike holed up with the cooking sherry and a cheap box of chocolates, and I allowed him to give vent to his unrestrained self-pity for a few days, no questions asked. Once he started drinking the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria that I got for Valentine's Day, however, all bets were off. I'm all for feeling one's feelings, but there comes a time when you have to quit wallowing in your pain and other's people's perfume and get back to work. I mean, really, do you think that this looks like a healthy response to rejection?

Come on, little feller. Have I got a job for you!

Ah, romance isn't dead yet. Thank heavens that doll!Spike was able to swallow his sadness and summon his inner professional! (Although, the more I look at him here, the more I have to ask myself, "Professional what?")

HAPPY BELATED VALENTINE'S DAY, LADIES! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MORGANA & PATTI! *big belated hugs* I hope that you both had the wonderful day that you so richly deserve. May the upcoming year be filled with creativity and good health. <333

Aw, thank you, sweetie! *hugs* I've missed having the time to do them lately.

Hope your Monday was low on "meh." :)

Aww, Spike would have given an awesome manicure. If one is into chipped, black nail polish.

Hee!

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


Ha! I'm sure you're right. Someone needs to convince the Buffys of his usefulness in this arena. ;)

From: [identity profile] penny-lane-42.livejournal.com


I just adore your creativity. Between your doll!fic and your Spaiku, you just amaze me.

This was way too fun and naughty. I love the bit about Spike liking eyeliner and nail polish, too!

(Although, the more I look at him here, the more I have to ask myself, "Professional what?") No kidding!

Too. Fun.

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


Aww, thank you so much! I wish I had more time to devote to both. I'm holding my breath for spring break. (Aren't we all?)

In an ideal world, there would have been shots of the armless!Angel's makeover. I may have to go back and re-create that at some point.

And yes. Spring break can't come quickly enough.

Bwaa-haa-haa!!

Poor Spike; so neglected by the girls. But does Armless Angel want to go to that party and be cosmetic-ized? Poor Angel, too!

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


Indeed, he does not. At some point, I'm going to have to take a picture of Angel at the hen party, don't you think?

Since armless!Angel is presumably somewhat lacking in the fingernail department, I have to wonder if Spike's suspicions are perhaps in some small way justified. (looks askance at Buffys)

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


Well, he has arms; he's just not wearing them. Now that I think of it, Spike should probably be as worried about what's going on with the stray arms as anything else!


From: [identity profile] drop-edge.livejournal.com


Oh, poor little Spike. And I'm going to have to quit reading your posts until I finish my class; otherwise, I'll spend all my time reading fic and none learning about mucous.

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


Mmm, mucous. What could possibly lure you away from that?

Hey, are you going to K's on Friday night? *puppy eyes*

From: [identity profile] empresspatti.livejournal.com


Best prezzie evah!!

Thank you Sweetie - you are a joy to know.

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


Oh, you're very welcome! Your birthday didn't pop up in my handy-dandy little LJ reminder list, and when I saw the "Happy Birthday, Patti" posts, I was all, "NOOOOO!! But . . . but. . .there's got to be doll!fic!" I went into Emergency Doll Photography mode and commandeered every piece of left-over Valentine's candy in the house. *snort* Like anybody needs to eat another chocolate-marshmallow heart, anyway. Blurg! :D

From: [identity profile] empresspatti.livejournal.com


I don't need to eat those hearts. I can just apply them directly to my hips and save my stomach the trouble.

Thanks again for the bd wishes. Us old and feeble like to be remembered!

From: [identity profile] rebcake.livejournal.com


It's the enormous knife that gets me. Spike must be feeling, um, diminished if he needs that monstrosity to feel better! I know he likes weapons, but c'mon!

His "professional" side is pretty scrumptious. I'm a little ashamed of myself...


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


Yeah, the "no questions asked" portion of my deal with Spike covers the placement of the knife as well. I fear that his relationship to it is somehow compensatory. *sigh* I think I may have to look into some kind of self-esteem booster for him. Maybe some daily affirmations: "I am a virile and lovable vampire with fantastic abs." "My poetry is just fine the way it is." That kind of thing.

Oh, no shame! I'm convinced that he rolled off the doll assembly line destined to be a little plastic pinup. I mean, look at him--he's having a fabulous time. Leer away!

Poor Spike! He can come to my makeup parties anytime!

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


He really does look quite fetching all dolled up. Heh. The Buffys don't know what they're missing!

From: [identity profile] botias.livejournal.com


Am I wrong to think that the Buffys just might have gotten carried away after a few glasses of wine? And they were all there to egg one another on with denial-ridden justifications. *pats poor Spike*

Yay for another installment of Dolls of Our Lives.

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


Heeee, "Dolls of Our Lives!"

Yeah, Spike wasn't the only one nursing a hangover. It doesn't take much Franzia at all for the Buffys to regress to junior high.

I may eventually have to take some pictures of Angel at the hen party. He was less than thrilled to be part of the makeover madness.

From: [identity profile] riccadonna.livejournal.com


The Big Knife's one is the essence of tragic!
I think that in the proper Valentine one little Spike still has suspiciously shiny eyes.

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


Poor discouraged doll! It was definitely not te Valentine's Day he'd envisioned. I'm going to have to have a talk with the Buffys before February 14 rolls around again.

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


Wait a minute! I love despondent/drunk Spike on the box of chocolates, but where's the pics of the hen party? I wanna see armless!Angel at the mercy of the Buffys with blusher.

This was deliciously funny , as usual !

From: [identity profile] darklingdawns.livejournal.com


Hee! That's just adorable... and the image of Angel all dolled up is gonna stay with me :)

Thank you, sweetie- it's the best birthentine present a girl could ask for! *huggles*

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


You're very welcome! I'm so glad I could make you smile. Although, honestly, silliness is a much less valuable commodity than being able to write the kind of stuff that sends people off to their bunks in droves. *sigh* We work with what we have. ;)
