I wish ME had given us more moments like this one on the screen. I think a Spike/Fred friendship had real potential.
Usually I feel miffed at ME for not giving Spike anyone who really *listens* to Spike. It was only now, as I read your story, that I realized that ME *also* didn't really give Spike anyone who *talked* to him. Buffy doesn't count. Season 6 Buffy just wanted to whisper things into a dead man's ear (to borrow a phrase from the song episode) that she was afraid to tell her friends. None of the scoobies or the Angel gang (except maybe Buffy, just a little bit, in Season 7 -- remember "the Killer in Me" when she delights in having all the potentials out of her hair for a few hours?) ever really chattered away at him for the sake of having a real person (not a conveniently "dead and therefore not real" listener) hear the thoughts bouncing around in their head.
Am I making any sense here at all? I feel like I'm blathering a bit.
Anyway: I liked the story, thanks for sharing!
