Wrote more than a dozen stories last night/this morning; this is the first to be transcribed and posted. They will not be posted in chronological order; nor in the order they came out of my brain. They are all set in the same femalehusband!verse that sees Tara and Faith as a couple. Should be posting a master list sticky post for that 'verse, but I think I'll do the 22'verse one first as posting these fics will take a couple of days.
They are all a belated birthday pressie for elisi, which I hope she will enjoy.
TITLE: Love in the Shadows
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
CHARACTERS: Hank Summers; Spike;
SUMMARY: Dawn's wedding; a father uninvited, and a vampire risking... things...
A/N: This is set a little earlier in the day of the wedding of Dawn and Lisa; also, of course, Faith and Tara; also Andrew, and someone who has yet to be revealed.
He felt so cowardly.
“I wanted to thank you for... you know,”
Spike shrugged; lighting a cigarette, trying to seem indifferent.
“Just stay at the back.”
Hank watched his daughters talking at the front of the Marquee; wondering distractedly what they meant to this man, so willing to risk their anger so he could be here for Dawn's wedding.
“Ain't you I'm worried about mate; just protecting my bollocks from the Slayer.”
“I don't want to...”
“Don't want her having them off for bringing you do I?”
Hank nodded, and settled into a chair before such circumstances could be set in motion.
Goddess watch over us all,
