This completes my bingo! :D
Why This Must Be Read: Set before season 6, when they were still (kind of) enemies, this is a classic. It goes more in the comedic direction than deeply serious character analysis, but it has lots of canon-typical witty banter, and the whole Scooby gang. It starts out as a Sex Pollen/Heat demon case and turns into romance with lots of sex on the way.
Spike was holding Buffy up. She had managed to worm her way inside his jacket, pressing herself against him intimately, a look of restrained ecstasy on her face.
Xander eyed them suspiciously. "Is that the Buffybot?"
"Xander!" Buffy realized what she was doing. "Oh." She pulled away from Spike, and almost fell forward.
"Don't mind her. It's the mist. It'll... wear off. Slayer!" Spike peeled her off of Xander.
"You need to get her out of here," Anya said, nose wrinkling. "Far away from Xander."
"Mmm..." Buffy's arm was draped over Willow's shoulder, forehead touching her cheek. She nuzzled into her friend's neck.
Tara spoke up. "Um... I vote against the wild orgy?"
"Second that," Spike said, gathering her in his arms.
