This was all James’s idea. It’s a story that I think he’s been kicking around for a long time. The reason I wanted to do it was simple. We were backstage at some event at San Diego, and he started telling me the story. And he’s the kind of actor who’s a natural storyteller—not all of them are. So he just rattled this thing off in a very fun way, the way you’d tell one of your favorite misadventures to a friend over a barstool. It just rolled, and I loved it right away. It’s a small story, it’s not a big turning point for the character. It’s a fun story where a few diverse elements come together to tell the sort of story I think we’ve sort of lost, something real human and personal, where the fate of the world doesn’t hang in the balance. But as he told me the story he was so much inside it, so connected to what it was about and how it connected to Spike on a simple level, that I really wanted to have that comic in my hand. I ran it by Joss and he was cool with it, so off we went.

—She’s right, Spike. Thanks for hopping the first bug ship back to San Fran.
Afraid the bug ship’s been scuttled, Luv. You’ve missed out on a lot. And you can save the thanks. Dawn — safe, sound, and back in her body — is all I need.
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you.
Finished my Spike/Buffy comic book shoes!
