Puppet man

Looking for fic! ... Possibly. I think

So Hostess is going out of business. Which is a shame because we have a factory here in Denver and a bunch of people are losing their jobs. But one of the many things that popped into my mind on hearing this news was, of course, "Xander would be crushed."  

As a sort of bizarre memorial to the end of the calorific institution, my mom bought a few of the remaining snack cakes and dropped them into paper sacks for my sister and me. She even wrote "Lunch Sack Memorial" on the front (my mom is awesome). In this bag was the classic "Hostess Cupcake" - i.e. the black icing with the white swirl on top, which sparked a memory.

I have this EXTREMELY vague recollection of Xander insisting that all Hostess cupcakes have an odd number of swirls on top - seven or nine - or they look strange. I can't remember if it was fic or canon. I can't remember if he was talking to Oz, Spike, Willow, or Anya [for some reason I'm thinking Oz maybe?], but it's going to drive me crazy. 

I distinctly remember the dissertation on the proper method of consuming a Twinkie in s2, however, so chances are this was fanfiction. 

But I thought if anyone could remember a story in which Xander has OCD issues with Hostess Cupcakes, it would be the fine people here at Bloodclaim. 

Thank you in advance if you can help satisfy my curiosity. 

And also, since I'm long winded and I have the opportunity here, Holy HANNAH I've missed a lot of updates! I'm sorry I've dropped off the planet and have been completely failing to read and respond to fic, I guess I have a lot of catching up to do!

Angel gazed down at Xander with something fiercely protective-- loving, in his expression. “Alright.” He murmured, lifting his wrist to his mouth. He allowed his demon face to come to the surface, slashing his wrist with razor sharp fangs to allow the blood to flow freely. "Let's get you fed, Xander."

Xander's own demon rose joyfully, gleefully. And, ohhh, it knew exactly what to do; Xander felt his face shift and crunch, and with both hands, he gripped Angel’s bleeding wrist in his trembling hands and drank.
