Xander stared at himself in the mirror and simply agreed that even with the eyepatch his was a face that a mother would call the police on in order to keep him away from her daughter. It was just another way he was inadequate for anyones affection or attention. No wonder he was alone.

You're insecure

Don't know what for

You're turning heads when you walk through the door

Don't need make up

To cover up

Being the way that you are is enough

Everyone else in the room can see it

Everyone else but you


Xander threw on whatever his hand touched first and left for the weekly meeting at the magic box. He didn’t even bother to brush his hair. He knew no one would notice. They all had their own problems.

Baby you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground it aint hard to tell

You don't know

Oh Oh

You don't know you're beautiful


When he got to the magic box he hung out in the back of the store until the meeting started and took a seat in the back of the group. He listened to Giles drawl on about the latest creature feature and felt sorry about himself.

If only you saw what I can see

You'll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe

You don't know

Oh oh

You don't know you're beautiful

Oh oh

That what makes you beautiful


Spike arrived to the meeting late and took a seat off to the side. He liked watching the group. Buffy and Dawn were arguing quietly about whether Dawn could go on patrol, Willow and Kennedy were giggling and in love. Xander sat in the back disengaged and shrunken in to himself.

That bothered Spike. He knew the boy was having trouble adjusting to life with one eye, but he was surprised to see him so obviously in pain over it. Xander was the one who you could depend on to make the best of things and adapt.


So c-come on

You got it wrong

To prove I'm right I put it in a song

I don't know why

You're being shy

And turn away when I look into your eyes


Spike didn’t realize he was openly staring at Xander until the boy caught his eyes and looked away ashamed. Spike knew he had to do something. He just wasn’t sure what yet.

Everyone else in the room can see it

Everyone else but you

Baby you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground it aint hard to tell

You don't know

Oh Oh

You don't know you're beautiful


Spike showed up at Xander’s door an hour later with a six pack of beer and some salty snacks. He also had a box of twinkies just for Xander.

“What are you doing here Spike? Come to kick me when I’m down?”

“No, I’m here to get your sorry arse to stop feeling sorry for yourself.”

“What do you care?”

“I know what it’s like to feel disabled and useless. I did a stint in a wheelchair a while back? Know what  that feels like to a creature who is near invincible?”

“That’s not the only part. I had bad luck in the romance department before I lost parts. Girls didn’t want me then. Who could love a face like this. I feel useless and ugly.  I'm the one working hard to earn a living and it's a huge joke to them.”

“You pet, are far from ugly. You are the most beautiful person I have ever met. You are smart, witty and funny. You are the most observant one of the lot. What you said to dawn about being the one who isn’t chosen and all that rot was the most empathetic and moving speech I have ever heard. You are loyal and brave. You are proof that even an "average" person can make a difference and save the world”.

“You really think that?”

“Yes, you’re gorgeous. Even with one eye you are the most beautiful creature to walk the earth inside and out.”


If only you saw what I can see

You'll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe

You don't know

Oh Oh

You don't know you're beautiful

Oh oh

You don't know you're beautiful

Oh oh

That's what makes you beautiful
