A/N: That's right, a bit of Seraphverse fic! ruuger made me this lovely icon, which seemed excuse enough to polish up this snippet set late S5 in the Seraphverse.

A week or so after the funeral, Spike sat in his scrounged armchair cradling Cora when Buffy came creeping down the stairs. )

Oh, you. How are you so flawless?

There are a lot of lovely things that fanfic gives me, but very rarely do I get Buffy and Spike friendship fic. This is so tentative, but lovely, their interactions just perfect, and the way everyone's clinging to Spike's baby like clinging to life just shatters my heart.

It's the truth. And you know, I never sit down in this 'verse with the thought, "I'm going to write some Spike-and-Buffy friendship fic now," especially since down the road - in another year or two, maybe - I expect them to end up together. But neither I nor they are in any hurry, so for now: friendship.

Thank you for the lovely comment. You know they always make me smile. :)

So true. I remember McDiva serving the same function as Cora during the initial grief from an unexpected death in my family, though she was nearly 3 years old at the time.

I think Buffy, of all of them, would most need the illusion of normalcy, that sure knowledge that life goes on even in the face of dreadful loss. She may never truly have normal, but she has to know that her sacrifices mean something.

Beautiful and heartbreaking.

I am always thrilled to know that something rings true emotionally, especially, as in this case, when I haven't experienced it firsthand.

Thank you. :)
