Five drabbles I really liked from Open on Sunday in 2015  
Here are five open_on_sunday entries I really enjoyed last year. And looking back through links I’ve collected I’m embarrassed that I didn`t get around to commenting on a few on them, so I really must recify that! But that aside, they are all great in their different ways.

I’ve Got You Under My Skin by xspike4evax is a lovely look inside Cordy’s head as she wonders what she sees in Xander.


If You Are What You Say You Are is by punch_kicker15 and is set during Superstar - Jonathan gives Joyce some bad and good news. This one is a killer.

After that, you might want a little bit of Spike, Dawn cuteness with feliciacraft’s A Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich for Dawn.

baudown always gives good drabble and You Don’t Bring Me Flowers is no exception. Xander is grumpy, but it’s amazing how disarming a sleepy vampire can be.

And finally, Show Me What I`m Looking For by verucasalt123 is a glimpse at Anya and Tara after Joyce`s death. I think this scene is my head canon now.

Thanks so much for mentioning my little drabble. I really need to get back into the habit of writing one every week. Such a great challenge to get your story told in so few words.

Your drabble was terrific, so I had to mention it. I just must apologise for not commenting on it at the time!

I picked three & five earlier myself because they're so great but the others are equally fine.

Thanks for posting.

I realised that I missed your drabble rec post. But better to rec twice than not at all :)

Oh, wow, I'm truly honoured to have my Spike & Dawn drabble included here! They're my favorite platonic pair. Thank you!

It was a pleasure to rec, it's a super drabble and I could just picture that scene. *g*

Nothing like some quick bites as we wind down :) Thanks for the post!

A few nibbles for when you get the munchies is always fun :)

Thanks so much for putting my Superstar drabble in with such great company!
sparrow2000sparrow2000 on January 20th, 2016 04:06 am (UTC)
It's in great company because it's a great drabble :)

Thanks again for the recs. You've put up some great links this year.
sparrow2000sparrow2000 on January 20th, 2016 03:51 am (UTC)
You are most welcome, I'm glad you found stuff you liked from them. It's funny I seem to have read nearly all gen stuff this year when I traced back the links I'd collected.

Ooh, I hadn't seen Baudown's. Thank you!

She's a great drabbler. All her drabbles are great big stories told in miniature which is what I love about them.
