Fic: If I Can’t Dance (Spike/Xander, R, Chapters 1 & 2)

For the lynnevitational, I've posted the first two chapters of my new S/X fic, If I Can’t Dance. I plan to have chapter three ready for next week.

Title: If I Can’t Dance
Author: cordelianne
Chapter: 1 & 2 /?
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: R
Word Count: Chapter One: 1,496, Chapter Two: 1,653
Summary: Set in season 5 and basically follows canon, although there will be twists and changes along the way. Chapter One begins shortly after "Buffy Vs Dracula" and Xander's line: "As of this moment, it's over. I'm finished being everybody's butt-monkey!" Chapter Two takes place before and after "The Replacement."
Beer is definitely of the good. Beer makes the bad stuff seem all fuzzy.
Xander drinks some more beer and glances around the Bronze. It’s the usual Monday night deadness. Not actual dead people, just the not-many-people deadness.

A/N: Written for the lynnevitational, thanks to lynnenne for hosting this shindig!
Thanks go out to the awesome electricalgwen, savoytruffle and spookymonkey for their invaluable pre-reading, betaing and support. Any mistakes are mine (and you're always welcome to point out my mistakes).
