Found this in shapinglight's journal.
Was thinking about fanfic in general and realising again that I have only one really hard-and-fast rule when I write it, which is probably not immediately apparent to people; and this is that, the characters in the show having mysteriously failed to give Spike much in the way of affection, or even in many cases to notice him at all, I feel duty bound to redress that balance.
Having said which, poor old Spike might be thinking to himself: "Well, attention like that, I could have done without, thank you very much."
Hmmm, this might be funnier if you know the author in question...
Still couldn't help posting though*g*
