Doomed to Repeat
for bobthemole: Spike, Dawn

Dawn scowled at him over her textbook. “But you lived this stuff.”

“Yeah? Whaddya know about the Belfast Agreement?”

“The what?”

“Happened in your liftetime. When’d they open the Chunnel?”

“Um...”

He snorted. “Bet you don’t even know when Man U’s treble was.”

More scowling. “What’s a treble?”

“Niblet, you’ve got bigger problems than Vietnam.” He slammed the book shut. “Time you learned the events that actually mattered.”

Then it was fouls and pennos and Beckham – she knew Beckham, at least – and no more land wars in Asia.

Just as well. He’d been a bit blissed out that decade anyway.

THANK YOU! That was pitch perfect! And the icon could be an illustration, it's so appropriate.

Yay. Glad you liked. :)

I KNOW. Absolutely perfect.

What's the old saying? If you claim to remember the sixties, you weren't really there?

*sigh* The stuff that matters is so seldom on the test.

Nifty!

Ain't it the truth? They never asked about BtVS on my grad school exams, either.

Fabulous! I love how you subverted the trope here! And the voices were just right!

Seriously. Since when was Spike an avid observer of world affairs? You'll notice that everything he does mention here is within Great Britain...

Exactly! And take WWII for instance--yeah, his only brush with that was the free virgin blood party, stealing a Nazi's jacket, and ending up on a submarine.

I pretty much picture him going to concerts (it's totally canon to me that he's just left a Ramones concert when he fights Nikki Wood), drinking in demon pubs and crying when Dru isn't paying attention to him, and taking Dru out for nights on the town. Oh, and watching TV. Loads of TV. Hee!

Sounds about right. Plus he occasionally finds out about certain important events. :)

Oh, I haven't read that one! I'm excited to now, though! Thanks!
