Five brilliant drabbles by baudown  
Well it looks as if I might be first up to post - happy new year everyone! :)

baudown gives good drabble, and I can only envy her effortless talent for telling huge stories with such economy and style. Here are five of my favourite drabbles from her written in 2013. Most, but not all are Spike, Xander in some form or another.

My favourite drabble hands down of the year ‘Til I’m Gathered Safely In. The last line especially makes me sigh.


Requiem is Spike, Angel and it just kills me.

Tribute makes me shiver and remember that Spike in love is more obsessive than Angelus could ever be.

Parlour Games just brings a lump to my throat

Last but not least, Something New just makes me smile like mad.

You are most welcome, they all deserve to be read and reread often.

Yes. Definitely, although for my money Parlour Games in particular.

Parlour Game is gorgeous isn't it - it was a toss up between the two as to which one was at the top.

Great drabbles. They're so hard to do well.

I really struggle with drabbles, so I really admire anyone who can nail them.
