Bloom

BloomSpike enjoyed watching Tara. As the centre of attention she was clumsy and tongue-tied, but if he chanced to observe her unawares, a different Tara emerged.

When helping Dawn with homework, Tara was eloquent and patient, always able to communicate the logic and complexity of a problem. When she was preparing spells or packaged magic ingredients for Anya, there was a grace and fluidity to her movements.

Seeing her dance when she thought nobody was watching, Spike mused that she was much like his younger self. He hoped she had a chance to blossom without the demonic intervention he suffered.


hieispikexmas drabble challenge: any spike pairing (that isn't spuffy, spillow or slash) would be great

Thanks. I've always like Tara and was quite pissed they killed her off.

Thank you.

I'm back in the land of broadband after much swearing at the shiny silver box while resetting it up. Fast internet is good.

Beautifully described. I really like the idea of Spike quietly admiring Tara.

So do I, but I like all of the outer Scoobies. They got a raw deal.

I wasn't heading there, but kind of stumbled on this one while I was writing it and it felt right.

I really like Spike's introspection.

Now the prepared I understand, as I rejigged that section, but where was my brain with glace? Weird.

Thanks for the catch and pleased you enjoyed it.

This is a lovely little snippet. It's well constructed and completely self-contained--and I think it captures the emotion involved without resorting to either too much or too little. I like the concept of how people change when they don't think they're obligated to be self-conscious. Enjoyed it. X3

Apologies for the hideous delay getting back to you. Found it in an inbox clean out.

I'm really glad you liked this.
