Exposure

ExposureSpike woke to the sound of people hitting things. It took him a moment to realise that he wasn't being pummelled and relaxed slightly, looking up from his bed to see his basement had been taken over by Potentials. Again.

Five of the infernal creatures; two brunettes, a whiny Eastender, a Chinese girl and a blonde with a bad dye job. All hammering away at each other or the punching bags. It was very annoying.

He put the pillow over his head and tried to go back to sleep, idly wondering if he could get away with killing the monsters.

I don't think you were alone in that thought. They were all so annoying and Kennedy was an awful plot device.

Yay! Death to the potentials! Very amusing!

And there's just the decision of a fast or slow death for them.

I feel like I'm a bit out of my depth here.

Meaning, I have no idea who all these chicks are. When I read 'blonde with a bad dye job,' I immediately assumed it was Buffy.

I quite like that you thought it was Buffy. After all, she was a blonde with a bad dye job and horribly annoying.

The Potentials, or Slayers in Training, were a bunch of girls who got sent to Sunnydale because they were getting killed in season seven. When the Slayer dies, one of them will become the new Slayer, but the first evil (the big bad of season seven) was sending its minions off to kill off the Slayer line. As you do.

Poor Spike...

How much of this is just general irritated man faced with teenage girls, and how much is vampire wanting to kill Slayers?

Possibly both, but I think general irritation would rule the day here.

I find him likeable, but then I also have a thing for Billy Idol.
