To Die For (1/1)

Here's my entry. It's polished and beta'd, so it's better than what I posted yesterday...although I don't know by how much. I got my icon here: http://www.angelfire.com/anime3/schala4/images/icons/buffynotaquote.html

Title: To Die For
Author: Mandylynn (mandylynn4@yahoo.com)
Pairing: Xander/Spike (more friendship than I like in my Spander, but...what can I say?)
Rating: PG for strong language and gross imagery
Warnings: Spoilers for final seasons of Buffy and Angel
Notes: Written for spring_with_xan for April 9th. 3332 words. Beta’d by the luverly Bee (lebourdon). Thank you sooooo much for helping me muddle through this once mess-of-a-story!
Summary: One year to the date of the destruction of Sunnydale, Xander finds himself in a deserted, lonely place in his life. Written in memory of my grandfather, Doyle Zimmerman, who died exactly one year to the date of April 9th, 2006. May God keep watch over his soul. Title comes from the following quote, which, found after writing this, I’ve decided that it fits this piece entirely. *pets quote*
Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for. – Dag Hammarskjold
