Fic: Have Yourself A Scary Little Christmas (Buffy/Dean) PG  
Title: Have Yourself A Scary Little Christmas
Rating: PG
Series: A Second Time Around - Interlude
Summary: Dean is just not in the mood for Christmas songs.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything associated with Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Supernatural. They belong to Joss Whedon and Eric Kripke. Nor do I own the song Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
Note: Written for the Buffy/Dean Holiday Challenge at buffyxdean. Prompt: evil! Santa. Oh, and also written for Lyndz's Mini-Christmas challenge at Route 66 - use a well-known Christmas song and either rewrite the lyrics or fit the original ones in there somehow.

Previous Parts


Dean was going to shoot someone. To hell with that rule of keeping weapons hidden in public. The next person he heard singing some cheesy ass Christmas song was going to get it. He shook his head. Like this season was reason enough to be happy all of a sudden. Right, not with Sam turned into a five year old.

Who knew the beginning of December was one of the few times of the year when magic went crazy and had higher levels?

He sighed as he opened the front door and then froze when he heard someone humming what was definitely a Christmas song.

Eyes narrowed, he went into the other room and stopped, blinking at the sight of Buffy surrounded by boxes of various shapes and sizes as she worked to wrap each one. Just as he opened his mouth to say something, she began to sing.

“Have yourself a scary little Christmas.
Be sure to turn on the light
Because the demons are going to put up a fight.”

Grinning, Dean crossed his arms and leaned against the doorjamb as she grabbed another box.

“Have yourself a scary little Christmas.
Evil Santa is on his way
Because the demons are too busy today.”

She pushed her hair away from her face and reached for the tape, cutting a few pieces to hold the paper in place.

“Grab your weapons, keep them close,
Close to your side.
Shiny weapons that are pretty sharp
Help us save the world once more.”

Buffy turned the box over, folding the ends of the wrapping paper into a triangle.

“Every year demon hordes will gather
And if the Powers aren’t asses,
We’ll kill the demon masses somehow.
So have yourself a scary little Christmas now.”

As her voice trailed off, Dean straightened and began to clap, grinning when Buffy dropped the scissors and looked up, eyes widening at the sight of him.

“Dean!” She bit her lip. “How long have you been standing there?”

“Shouldn’t you be able to tell me that, oh mighty Slayer?”

“I’ve got spools of ribbon and I’m not afraid to throw them.” As if to prove her point, blue ribbon came flying towards him. Laughing, he stepped to the side. “Talk, Winchester.”

“Heard every single verse,” he said. “I came in while you were humming.” He began to step over the wrapped gifts so he could sit next to her.

She closed her eyes, cheeks turning slightly pink. “Oh God.”

“I liked it. Best Christmas song I’ve heard all day. Just don’t let Sam hear the part about evil Santa, okay? I really don’t want to have to explain that one.”

Buffy opened one eye and then the other, smiling. “Deal. So, you really liked it, huh?”

“That was my kind of Christmas song. Way better than that crap they play at the stores.” He smirked. “But I’ve got an even better one in mind.”

“I’m almost afraid to ask. What?”

Dean rubbed his hands together, grinning, and then to the tune of Frosty the Snowman began to sing, “Dean Winchester was a very handsome man...”

Laughing, Buffy threw another spool of ribbon at him.



Have yourself a scary little Christmas
Be sure to turn on the light
Because the demons are going to put up a fight
Have yourself a scary little Christmas
Evil Santa is on his way
Because the demons are too busy today

Grab your weapons, keep them close
Close to your side
Shiny weapons that are pretty sharp
Help us save the world once more.

Every year demon hordes will gather
And if the Powers aren’t asses
We’ll kill the demon masses somehow
So have yourself a scary little Christmas now.


And yes, now I've decided to try and write the lyrics to the song Dean starts at the end there. *grins*
 
 
Feeling: pleasedpleased

Girl, you're good!

The Christmas song is creative and fits well with them. =) LOL!

Thank you and thank you! :D

LOVE. LOVELOVELOVE.

Her lyrics cracked me UP. Oh Buffy.

The next person he heard singing some cheesy ass Christmas song was going to get it.

Thank you. I've been listening to Christmas music since JULY for my dance team. More than ready to hear something else.

Grinning, Dean crossed his arms and leaned against the doorjamb as she grabbed another box.

Why is that the prettiest picture ever? Dean grinning, leaning oh so casually, arms crossed, eyebrows raised = me as mush.

“I liked it. Best Christmas song I’ve heard all day. Just don’t let Sam hear the part about evil Santa, okay? I really don’t want to have to explain that one.”

Buffy opened one eye and then the other, smiling. “Deal. So, you really liked it, huh?”


HA! Sam'll enjoy it...later. When he's not so small and young and easily impressed upon. (Sorry, I'm giggling now over the imagined look on his little face if he heard about Evil!Sana. *giggles madly* Oh Sammy.)

Want the lyrics to the other song. This one is classic, and I found myself singing along with Buffy. You rock out loud.

QUOTAGE!!! *coughs and clears throat* I mean, thank you! LOL. I had so much fun writing those lyrics. I was singing them at work (which earned me some weird looks from customers, let me tell you) just to be sure they worked.

And yes, Dean leaning with arms crossed and eyebrow raised is a pretty picture. I challenge anybody to disagree after seeing it.

LOL, aw little Sammy would probably not be happy to hear the phrase "evil Santa". Can't you just picture it? Dean having to explain that no, Santa isn't evil and Buffy fighting not to laugh at him.

As for the other song... *looks around* I've gotten this far:

Dean Winchester was a very handsome man
With a .45 and his brother Sam
He had to go on the lam

Thanks so much! :D MWAH!

*applauds* Oh sweetie! I loved this. Was so in-character for both Buffy & Dean. Their easy banter and I loved the description about what she was doing during each verse. Really fabulous job!

Thank you! I had so much fun with this one (Really, I don't know how much the customers at work appreciated my new lyrics to the song, lol.) so I'm glad you liked this. And of course, I'm having fun with all the prompts! :D

Cute! I'm going to work on more drabbles either tonight or tomorrow.
