Clarification"Spike." Dawn had her lip locked in full pout, it might have worked if Spike wasn't studiously ignoring her. "Can I borrow your duster?"

"Don't have a duster, love."

Dawn's pout was replaced by confusion. "Yeah, you do. It's hanging by the door."

Spike looked up at last. "That is a coat."

"Buffy said it was a duster."

"Pet, a duster is what guys wear in cowboy movies. You'd do well to remember that Buffy has no concept of pop culture pre-90s and shouldn't be trusted on anything that doesn't involve killing things."

"Okay. So, can I borrow your coat?"

I loved this. God point to make...

I expect Dawn will get the point, Buffy never will.

So true! Glad to have that clarified finally!

Now to spread the word...

I so pleased. Notice that Dawn never got her answer. I expect she either got her way or Spike ended up banging his head against the wall in frustration. Possibly both.

I am deeply, deeply amused. And startled. Buffy - not the only one ignorant of that fact. Nice one!

Just a personal bugbear. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one in the fandom who ever grew up watching westerns. Sergio Leone and the amazing Ennio Morricone, rock my world. John Wayne, on the other hand, should be hung, drawn and quartered. Hack.

I love the way you write these two and their interactions!

Thanks. The muse has been kind to me with Spike and Dawn. ::pats muse::

Lol. Funny, like stubborn Dawn. So, it is not a duster? Then why do writers keep calling it a duster?
7th Jul, 2004 22:16 (UTC)
Because, like Buffy they have no knowledge of westerns to have ever seen or know what a duster is.

As far as I can tell it was never mentioned in canon (some transcriber for season 6 and 7 insists on incorrectly calling it a duster , but that doesn't count) and was completedly made up and perpetuated by fanfic writers.

Yeah! That's right! Spike wouldn't be caught dead in cowboy gear. ;-P

Luv it!

I don't know... Tombstone had great costuming and Sergio Leone's films are perfection. Probably better to visualise Clint Eastwood than John Wayne.

I don't know . . . Spike in a poncho? Not even in the sixties. ;-)) But, yeah, more Clint than John . . . Maybe Gary Cooper?
