Outline

OutlineSpike nuzzled into his companion as he woke, causing Dawn to unleash a stream of delighted giggles. "Morning, love."

"Good morning to you too." Dawn received a very thorough wake up kiss. "So what happens now?" She felt rather than saw the answering shrug.

"Staying in bed with you for the foreseeable future is as far as I care to think at the moment."

Planting a fond kiss on his forehead, Dawn sighed. "I meant do you want to stay in Rome or do you want me to join you in LA?"

Pulling back to properly look at Dawn, Spike studied her face. It was so familiar, a little older, more mature, perhaps, but still essentially his Dawn. "Bugger that. How about we hit the road?"

A road trip was good idea, but Dawn really wanted to the chance to play tourist rather than just seeing the countryside through a car window. "I'd like to go somewhere where we can just wander around at our leisure, go to museums and art galleries and libraries. Look at old buildings, that kind of thing."

"Europe? Asia?" He settled back and pulled Dawn into his arms.

"I'd like to see more of Europe, it's been all hotel rooms and research. I'd love to see Paris and Amsterdam and Berlin and London and —"

"Okay, love. One at a time," Spike chuckled in amusement.

Dawn groaned. "I can't see Giles and the Council parting with money for a holiday and I'd like to get away from all of that for a while. So I guess it's just a nice thought."

"Not necessarily. I know a place we can crash in London that's out from under the Council's watch, so let's start there, shall we."

"Deal." Dawn straddled Spike and sealed their bargain with a kiss.

Sounds like you need the services of a good axe murderer.

I have to say I never really thought about a Spike snd Dawn relationship before I started reading your ficlets. Now I have to wonder, what if...

There's nothing like sharing the Spike/Dawn love around. So happy you're enjoying.

I really like how this series is turning out! Dawn and Spike are great together because of the way you write their relationship and shared exploits. They exude warmth and tenderness when they are together.

I really, really like the way you write Spike and Dawn interacting, whether they're together romantically or not. They have a great rapport.

Many thanks! I don't know if it's a good or bad thing that Spike and Dawn are some of the more vocal voices in my head, at least writing rather than axe murdering comes of it, so that has to count for something.

Maybe writing about axe-murdering? *blinks innocently*

Hmm... knives, swords, claws, blunt instruments, scalpels, razors, bare hands, fangs, teeth... No deaths by axes, but I did do a disarticulation by axe in Back to Basics.

There seems to be a blade theme going on there.

I'd hate to explore your subconscious. I've got a feeling that it'd turn out to be a very dangerous place. ;-)
