Obstacles Part 1/3

Hi, it's my posting day at seasonal_spuffy. First of all, thanks to enigmaticblues for all her hard work and to everyone else for your wonderful posts. The theme of this round was 'obstacles' and I'm afraid I've been very lazy and just called my story the same thing.

Pairing: Spike/Buffy (it goes without saying). Mention of Angel/Nina.
Rating: R, I think, but mainly for language.
Setting: This story is a sort-of sequel to my previous seasonal_spuffy story, Heroes in Hell. Events go AU after Chosen, with Spike never having gone to Wolfram & Hart and AtS season 5 unfolding without him. He and Buffy are now a couple again (or for the first time, depending on how you look at it) and a few years have passed. As in the Buffy comic, Buffy is living in a castle in Scotland and training Slayers, but it doesn't matter at all if you've never read the comic.
Beta: Many thanks to my beta laisserais for all her help. Thanks, too, to woman_of who read through the Scottish characters' dialogue for me. Any remaining mistakes are, of course, entirely mine.

A Day In The Life - Ficlet

Hi, folks. It's my posting day on seasonal_spuffy as well as shapinglight - just checked the email to be sure! LOL

Many thanks to enigmaticblues for all her work for this wonderful community. And for the theme of obstacles, which I've kinda turned on its head by removing as many of them as possible from a slice from an alternate Season 5. Hope you enjoy.

Title: A Day in the Life
Author: Just Sue
Rating: PG13
Summary: Some time in an alternate, nicer S5 - where the key is a key, Riley is gone, and Glory is somewhat misplaced in LA – a glimpse at a day in the life of Spike and Buffy.
Warning: Ad nauseum references to tea
Betas: Many thanks to slaymesoftly and alwaysjbj. Any and all errors are mine – feel free to point out.
Disclaimer: Not mine in reality, just caressed briefly in an attempt to entertain, then returned intact…mostly.
