I spotted this quote on su_herald the other day, and did a doubletake:

Spike: Got to hand it to you, Goldilocks, you have bleedin' tragic taste
in men. I have a cousin, married a regurgitating Frovlax demon, has better instincts than you.

Wait, what now? Spike has a cousin? Let's look at the possibilities here ( Read more... )

When I saw that scene, I immediately thought vampire cousin and since Dru dated out of species with the slime demon, I didn't think it far-fetched to have a vampire marry out of species.

Demon-in-Law...that has possibilites :-)

I gotta say, I share Spike's opinion on the idea of dating someone "all slime and antlers"...

It just seemed funny to me, because the vampires don't seem to have much in the way of social structure generally.

I know that I've read a fic that subscribed to possibility #2. Now if I could just remember what the heck it was! I think, however, that the cousin wasn't vamped; she became immortal through some other route. Powerful witch, perhaps?

I'll come back with a link if I can remember more.

Ooh, I'd be interested to see that fic. I think that's what boggled me the most about the quote - the fact that I'd never seen it referenced in any fic I can remember.

Regardless, it looks interesting - thanks!

You know, I've wondered about that comment, too. I actually eventually concluded with Option Number 3. Though I suppose it could be Standard Spike Hyperbole, especially since he's using it in a scathing remark towards Buffy.

It seemed funny to me because the vampires don't seem to have much in the way of social structure generally, but I don't know of anything concrete that'd rule out that possibility.

An episode of Spike Soul Survivor is based on this quote

Ooh, thanks for the link! I'd never run across Soul Survivor before, so I'll have to check it out.
