Thanks to work being crazy-busy and me going to yoga 5 days a week, I'm finding that I'm behind on replying to comments, commenting and reading. A special thank you to everyone for the wonderful comments on Five Times Xander Doesn't Tell Spike He Loves Him (And One Time He Does) - I've been grinning for weeks over those comments (and am still replying!).

However I have been writing! And not just FINALLY completing Outside Pride, I am also consumed with (some may say obsessed with) a new human AU S/X fic for [livejournal.com profile] fall_for_sx that I'm frantically working to complete for Sunday... so look out for that! I'm excited to share it.

So yes, this is the conclusion of Outside Pride, much later than I'd wanted but the chapter is what I wanted it to be so that's important. I sincerely apologize for the delay (writer's block can be a bitch). The entire fic is just over 15,000 words. As George Saunders says, An ending is stopping without sucking. And I definitely aimed for this to not suck. I really hope that you enjoy it!

It's here!!! I'm so excited to have more Outside Pride! It's been a while, I know, but I've been figuring how to conclude things and finally know, so Chapter 10 should be coming your way soon! I've included a "Previously" to refresh you on exactly where we left things between Spike and Xander at the end of chapter eight. :D

Summary: AU set at a summer camp.
The sun is shining, crickets are chirping, birds are singing and it’s bloody annoying. Spike visualizes knocking the birds out – not to kill ’em, just to shut ’em up. But it would be messy. And he’d have to get up to do it.

And with a few minutes to spare, here’s the last chapter for the day. There are still two more chapters in the story (which need to be written! *g*) but I feel this chapter will be a satisfying way to end my posting day for [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan – and hope you’ll agree! Oh! It’s a longer chapter than usual too! Special thanks to the best betas a girl could ask for: [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle and spookymonkey. I so appreciate them going out of their way to help me with this chapter today! Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] apreludetoanend whose support and encouragement is a huge reason I actually finished chapter eight! *hugs*

“This is all my fault.” Buffy slouches in her chair and casts a guilty glance around the room. “No, no!” Willow catches Xander’s eye, then sighs. “Okay, so you and Angel making with the smoochies probably inspired this particular video session, but they always have nights like this. You just gave them the opportunity. So it’s really more like you did them a favor.” “Teenage hormones plus no parents equals sex on the brain,” Xander says. “Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. Purely hypothetical of course.”

Today’s my second posting day at [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan and I'm pleased to be posting the next three chapters of Outside Pride. So that means today I'll be posting chapters 6, 7 and 8! I had initially hoped to post all remaining five chapters but life got very very busy and exhausting. But I am delighted to have chapter eight for you today, especially since yesterday morning it was only a couple hundred words long. I feel that you won't be disappointed with where chapter eight ends, and then I plan to finish the last two chapters asap and if there's still a free day at the comm, I'll snag that day to post. But definitely keep an eye on my LJ for updates!

Whoever said that when God closes a door he opens a window was full of shit.
Xander winces. Outside Pride and it’s insistence that Xander be a good Christian role model – whatever that means – have infiltrated his brain. He now feels guilty just
thinking a swear word.

Xander’s never prided himself on being big with the strategizing – he leaves that to Willow – but he had thought his plan of ‘avoid the guy I’m having sexy dreams about’ would be easy to follow.

Trees and rocks, and more trees and rocks. And don’t forget the clean air and fresh water. It’s like a bloody nature movie, but with none of the fun violent parts.

Today’s my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan, exactly the same day I posted to the community last year which randomly makes me happy! Over the course of the day, I’m very pleased to be sharing with you the first half of my very first human AU fic. I will be posting the second half on my next posting day, May 17th. So stay tuned today, more chapters will be posted! *g*

Towels? Check. Xander makes the check in his head because it’s more fun than using the list so helpfully provided in the “You’re a Counselor! A leader! A role model!” Welcome Pack.
A/N: I want to take this opportunity to note how important it is to me in all my fic to have the characterizations be true to the characters we love from the shows, and to assure you that I am especially attentive to this when writing human AU (and concrit is always welcome by email). I also had some fun by including the occasional line from BtVS and AtS.
