I love this. Exactly the conversation I would imagine they'd have.

Bloody abomination, that's him. Doesn't hurt to have company, he supposes. Even hers.

Excellent - their shared human elements are what disgust their vampire selves yet redeem each of them in their own way. Lovely conversation, with very good voices.

Loved this. Not nearly enough stories told with these two. And I love the idea of Spike knowing that Darla was pregnant before Angel. The little touches like her getting emotional due to hormones, wanting Spike to feel the baby and mentioning how Dru is the only "pure" one were really well done.

Thank you! I'm glad the details worked for you. I agree, there isn't nearly enough Spike&Darla fic in the world.

Thank you! That was exactly the sort of connection between them that I was going for. It hadn't occurred to me that their 'abominable' qualities were what led them to their respective redemptions - that makes it work on a whole other level than I was thinking of. Yay for the subconscious. :p

This is excellent missing scene. You capture the character so well, I can hear them talking to each other as I read.

How the mighty have fallen! I loved how he unfolds at the sight of her tears. Out come the tissues, then the pet name, finally the offer to see her to the station. He can't help himself, it seems. This story does make me wish that Darla had managed to find Dru. A little sisterly affection would have made a huge difference to her at this point.

Well done.

Ya know, I hadn't even noticed that progression (tissues, pet name, offer) until you mentioned it. :p Glad you enjoyed!

On Darla and Dru: Expectations is a piece that approaches the 'tween-seasons from a different angle that's kind of neat. (There's not nearly enough gen Darla fic, IMO, so I sort of started collecting it.)
