Title: The Resolute Urgency of Now
Author: Emelye
Canon: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Xander Harris/William ‘Spike’ Pratt
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 35,810
Summary: “Dru gave me a hundred years of grand passion. What she never gave me was one chance to be first in her affections. Five minutes with you and I feel like the only man in the world. I’d trade ten lifetimes with Dru for ten more minutes with you.”

Recommendation: I do so love a story where Xander gets to be badass but doesn’t get ‘powers’. I was rather charmed by the OCs from New Orleans, and I even enjoyed the ‘bad guys’. When I was starting to read this story I was sitting in my car and the radio was on and ironically the Smashing Pumpkins’ Tonight, Tonight came on with the line that’s the title for this story. It felt like a weird sign.
