Summary: While in Dallas, Godric takes an interest in Sookie, believing that there may be a reason for her erratic and many times disagreeable nature. This story will explore their relationship.

Notes: This story is an AU, starting off in Dallas. Godric is not the vampire that the Fellowship kidnapped, rather it was a vampire from his nest.

***I wanted to add a note here, since I received an extremely hateful and mean-spirited review. Criticism does not bother me. If there is something you feel is off or that you have a question about concerning character, the writing or whatever, I feel that is perfectly acceptable to comment on. However just writing something in order to attack is pointless and rude, especially when doing so anonymously; if you're going to have the gall to be so unaccountably horrible to someone, I believe you should at least have the backbone to give the person you're attacking the chance to respond.

Additionally, I want to address the comment for anyone else who happens upon this story. The person who wrote this hateful comment suggested that I was writing Godric in a way that had him "engaging in an open, condescending trash-talking of Sookie." This commenter also objected to the character using the phrase "temper tantrums" to describe the way Sookie sometimes behaves. Generally I wouldn't feel the need to explain myself to anyone however this comment really got to me because I was also accused of being "misogynistic" by whoever made this comment, so here goes.

Number one: I do not believe Godric to be trash-talking Sookie; he is stating facts as he views him. If you had read closely at all you would note that he commends and compliments Sookie's bravery, simply makes note of the way she chooses to handle situations. And specifically, as far as him saying she has "temper tantrums," if this reader had gone on to Chapter 2 he or she would have read that Godric apologizes for saying this. Number two: Godric cannot possibly know Sookie as a person completely. At the point he is making his observations he has known her for two days, max. He knows what he does through Eric. Number three: As the writer of this story I have a right to manipulate characters how I desire. Is it my intent to portray Godric OR Sookie in a negative light? Absolutely not. This story is about a loving relationship. Is Godric both 'Dominant' and Vampire in the story? Absolutely. In the author's note it was stated that the relationship between them was going to be a Dominant/submissive. I am writing my Sookie as a character that has had to do everything on her own, something that Godric states as well. I'm not making a negative commentary on anyone who does or has had to do so, in fact much the opposite since I understand very well the situation I'm writing about.

Since I am writing about a DOMINANT/SUBMISSIVE relationship, though, it needs to be understood that in real life, the world we live in, there is a whole culture of people who live in the relationships I will be writing about. There is nothing "misogynistic" about it and I find that hurtful and insulting. The D/s culture is comprised of people who identify themselves as Dominant or submissive, Master or slave, and wish to be in a relationship of this nature. In my story, Godric, as a Dominant, sees that Sookie, MY Sookie in this AU that I am writing, is a natural submissive and only wants to help her. That does not mean control everything she does. That does not mean take her freedom away or her ability to voice her opinions. I would be happy to discuss this more at length with anyone who has questions or issues about this and wants to have a real conversation. But I will not be bashed and attacked for writing about a type of relationship I find to be beautiful and fulfilling as do thousands and thousands of others in the world.

I apologize for ranting, the comment just felt like a personal attack. To anyone still willing, I hope you will give the story the chance I feel it rightly deserves. D/s relationships can be beautiful and, in my opinion, the people involved have the potential to become even closer than they would partaking in any vanilla relationship. The level of trust involved to be this way with someone is astounding. It isn't for everyone obviously but I can say it is immensely rewarding for those who do find their way into the lifestyle. Thank you to anyone else willing to give the story a chance.

Title: Should the Wide World Roll Away
Chapter: 13/?
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: PG-13
Concrit: Please! Comments are always welcome. I love to know you're reading.
Disclaimer: All characters are borrowed with respect from Joss Whedon.
Warnings: (Minor) character death.
Summary: Since it's been SO LONG...(sorry about that): last time Angelus managed to kidnap both Giles and Julian, but Julian wasn't as helpless as it seemed. Both Spike and Xander as well as Buffy and Willow went looking for their missing friends. Spike and Xander had a "misunderstanding," and Cromwell ran into some bad luck.
Notes: Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. All I can say is...ugh. Life. Sometimes it takes over. I really hope people are still going to be interested in this story and want to read. I have always appreciated both the readers and the commenters tremendously. I am continuing to write and will continue to post. I just can't promise regularity because of other obligations. But I'm still here! Promise.

While I was away I got an English and Creative Writing degree and now I'm working toward getting certified to teach. Also, I've been working on several original works of fiction (short stories). I'm posting one here and I'd love it for anyone who wants to take a look to go ahead...and review if you want!

Also...I'd like to send happy (late) birthday wishes to one of the people who has always been wonderful - Happy Birthday sparrow2000!

Title: Should the Wide World Roll Away
Chapter: 11/?
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: PG-13 now
Concrit: Yes Please! I love to know you're reading.
Disclaimer: All characters are borrowed with respect from Joss Whedon.
Warnings: None for this chapter.
Summary: Spike gets back to Xander (finally). Buffy and Willow take a trip to Giles's house. Julian and Angelus chat some more.
Notes: Oh my God...you know, I think instead of calling this section "Notes" I should label it "Excuses" because I really did not mean to take this long for the next chapter. So for that I apologize. Honestly, I've been sick since the end of November and I'm really only just starting to get over it now. Aside from feeling really terrible, my friend unfortunately accidently overdosed on painkillers and had to go on dialysis. So now he needs a new kidney. My next semester is starting soon, and I don't even know if people still remember this story, but for any that do and are still reading, I do have Chapter 12 laid out and already started so that should hopefully be up soon. *crosses fingers* Here's hoping you enjoy this chapter!

Again, I apologize profusely for taking so very long with this one. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Apparently someone has nominated me and my story Should the Wide World Roll Away at the Sunny D Awards. Thank you to whoever did so. It is a much appreciated compliment. The next chapter of that story should be up soon (within the next day or so, maybe?). In the meantime I hope you all enjoy this story.

Title: Just Like Kisses
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: G-PG...nothing bad.
Concrit: Please! Comments are always welcome. I love to know you're reading.
Disclaimer: All characters are borrowed with respect from Joss Whedon.
Warnings: None.
Summary: He shoved off lightly, pumping his legs back and forth until he was swinging high enough that his feet no longer skimmed the earth below him. Xander closed his eyes then, gripping the chains of the swing more tightly in his fists and imagined he was flying, up and into those angry clouds, above them and into the heavens.
Notes: This is a oneshot. Set in season 2-3ish, some time after Angel has "offered" Xander up to Spike in the episode "School Hard". Hope everyone enjoys.

I continue to be grateful to everyone that reads and comments on my stories. Your feedback means the world to me. Apologies for the wait as I'm working on a few papers at the moment. The length of this chapter is shorter as well. It's sort of connecting us to the next part of the story. Hope you enjoy the chapter.
