Author's Note: Ages ago, I wrote a super-rough version of this (mostly the phone call section) and posted it on my LJ. I then used some of that in another Spike-sitting fic, Truce or Dare. When I came across the original draft last weekend, I was inspired to flesh it out and polish it up.
A Very Important Message: As I title this, it occurs to me that I write about being under the influence a lot. I swear I'm not condoning (nor condemning) anything here — I just like to explore what can happen when Buffy loosens up a little, and magical demon drugs or plain old booze are an effective means to that end. Of course, Buffy usually winds up naked in these scenarios, so... let that be a lesson to you kids! *fingerwag* And... if you felt implicated by that remark, you shouldn't be reading this anyway! You shouldn't even remember Buffy, let alone want to see her sexing a not-at-all-glittery vampire! God, I feel old right now.
ANYway: This is a new addition to my Close Encounters collection, an assortment of teasy, naughty 'deleted scene' one-shots (and now, 3-parters) set in Season 4, arranged by BtVS timeline. Each fic stands on its own, totally disregarding the one(s) before it, though a few of them are treated as 'canon' in my fic, Wild Things. This one fits after the first in the collection, Just A Taste.
