Closer and Closer by dampersandspoons

Summary: Spike Pratt is eighteen, pissed off, fresh out of jail and thrust into the arms of his stuffy uncle, Rupert Giles. Their history is unclear to Rupert's co-worker Joyce and her daughter Buffy, but what is abundantly clear is everyone's inability to communicate. The game of push me pull you can only last so long before someone finally gets close enough to make contact. And when they do... what secrets will they find?
Author's Notes: This story is based on a prompt given to me by nautibitz
Nauti: ok, well, here it is. I've always loved rebel teen Spike living at Giles' (ie Season 4). I'd like to read an AU where Giles isn't his dad, because that's lame, but a relative he has to stay with, and there's that same animosity between them. Buffy somehow has to be there for some reason and he MUST be British, and be called Spike and... GO!
Based on that, I created this little story! I hope you like it. It's lighthearted at first, and then it gets a bit more serious. But I won't be killing anyone with drama and angst in this one, aside from teenage melodrama that is more humorous than actually sad. Unless you're a teenager in which case I'd like to say that it's really not that bad. Wait until you're 25. :)
This story is not complete.

Chapter Notes: I have been to the UK twice, and I've used the knowledge gained from those trips as well as some extensive research about Burroughs that are slightly more dodgy than say, Camden Town (which isn't really dodgy if you aren't a jerk tourist, but I digress). That said, if you are a local or a native of London and you catch something off, please let me know in a private message so I can correct it. I don't think I'm off base, though, so hopefully it won't be necessary. Enjoy the update!

Chapter Notes: For the first time in a LONG while, I write an Angel that everyone can hate. I typically love Angel and don't think he's a jerk most of the time, and this isn't really Angel bashing. I figure this time it's cool, since he's really not the main conflict, and also, I just love assholes!!!! Maybe you'll LOVE what a prick he is, because I sure as hell do! :D I said in a comment yesterday that rich, bureaucratic assholes don't have souls, so he's really more like Angelus. But it's current day, and Los Angeles, and I couldn't see anyone naming their son Angelus. And...he's not THAT evil, just an arrogant ass. Keep your pimpin' hands strong, ladies. Anyway, enough about that. Enjoy the chapter, and let me know your thoughts when you're done. :D

Chapter Notes: I've been obsessing over three paragraphs in this chapter for two weeks now. I actually had it done on Christmas but because I am insane and nit-picky, I had to make sure it was right before I posted. I did post two chapters back-to-back the last of December, so please make sure you've read the last two updates before you read this one! Thank you for all the reviews and encouragement! Enjoy!
