Fic rec: As In “Recent” by Nauti  
Buffy and Spike have some kind of history. You can feel the heat between them, although technically as a vampire he's room-temperature.
— ANDREW, in his self-appointed role as documentarian, in Storyteller

What if that "history" is more recent than Andrew thinks? Nautibitz uses her considerable "storyteller" skills to supply a missing scene that might take place just before Buffy and Spike enter the kitchen at breakfast time.

Contains one of this mod's favorite lines in fanfic, ever. See if you can guess which one!

Ah, love that one. I'd forgotten it was nauti's. There were so few non-angsty fics set during season 7. This one made me smile. (but I couldn't figure out what your favorite line was though....

Well, you'd have to know about my weakness fondness for puns — especially naughty ones — to guess. That Nauti has quite the way with dialogue, among other things, so there's lots of good stuff to choose from!

Good point about the rarity of non-angst in fic about this season. I'll have to make an effort to highlight more of the cheerful bits!

Is it the one about the "Something's coming, but it sure as hell ain't me" speeches?

You betcha! Hahahahah! That Nauti sure can turn a phrase. *wipes eyes*

I hope it was "Anyone gets suspicious, you can always distract 'em with one of your 'Something's Coming But It Sure as Hell Ain't Me' speeches."

Line made me LOL

Yep. Perfection in both characterization and plot in the form of a joke. *happy sigh*

"A bit of the old squeak-and-creak" HAH. Very nicely done voices for both of them.

And I love that screencap - is it bizarre how much we meaning we pull out of those tiny little onscreen crumbs? But they way they enter that kitchen so casually reminds me a bit of when they were friends in early S6 and there's something so easy in their presence with one another here. Good times.
