Title: Heart Don't Lie
Author: NautiBitz (nautibitz.com/contact.html)
Show | Pairing | Rating : Buffy the Vampire Slayer | Spike/Buffy | NC-17/M (not for kids)
Summary: Buffy and Spike face the consequences of a 'wild' night together: a bundle of (possibly evil) joy! Much more than a "baby fic", this is a multi-layered love story about learning to listen to your heart. It's also chock full o' freaky sex, fluffy bunnies, horny gods, catty brawls, cranky slayers, and the end of the 'verse as you know it!
Timeline: An amorphous S4 AU wherein a chip-free Spike is working with the Scoobs (you'll find out why), Buffy
lives at home, Oz is still around and Giles still works at the high school
library. Also, Anya has yet to return. Which is probably a good thing,
considering she'd be really freaked out about now.

Author's Note: This is an authorized sequel to Saber ShadowKitten's "Humping
Like Bunnies." She supplied the brilliant title, "A Bunny In The Oven",
I went from there. In the previous story, Buffy and Spike were -- oops! -- transformed
into rabbits by Willow. Humping naturally ensued. Here's the zany aftermath.
About The Title: Nope, that's not a typo. The title is not Hearts Don't Lie. It's Heart Don't Lie. There is no S. You're absolutely right, it isn't grammatically correct, but you'll understand its context when the line is spoken in a later chapter. (It also happens to be the name of a LaToya Jackson song and an E.G. Daily song, but don't hold that against the story. There will be
no '80s hair or pastel graphics in this fic.)
Special Thanks: To my beta, little_bit, for her invaluable help once I endeavored to turn the first chapter into a series. She whipped
my ideas into shape, supplied some great lines and scenarios and edited the crap out of my first drafts. This bun's for you, Ms. bit!
Thanks also: Beta readers of various chapters: adjrun, rabid1st, kjdraft, cheebs. Overall beta readers once it was done: willow25 and dhark_charlotte. French language assistants Max and shippy. To readers of the non-beta type,
especially luna, who kept bugging me to post chapter two, and everyone at NautiFic who cheered the story on as I posted it in rough form.
If you've been following this from day one, I commend you. And I apologize.
