THE BTVS-ERA CAMPOUT ON THE BEACH / BEACH PARTY:

This challenge was issued by Lissette over at Fire Still Burns in the Summer Beach House Forum, but at least two stories cross-posted to Angel’s Oasis have been base upon it. So, here are the details:

Okay, I’m totally in that BtVS mood and I want a challenge somewhere during the time C/X and B/A are dating….

They all go to the beach to spend the night, kind of like a slumber party at the beach. Somehow Buffy convinces Angel to go to this little sleepover. They do the normal roasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories, etc. Then Buffy, Xander and Willow take off (for whatever reason) and Angel goes to his tent, to lay there and brood about Buffy having gone off without him and then finally fall asleep. Cordelia wonders into the dark tent thinking it’s Xander and comes prepared for a little make out session and maybe a bit more

Angel is pleasantly awakened by a warm, luscious female body draped over him, being able to see in the dark and all, realizes it’s Cordy, but doesn’t say anything because he is enjoying it too much.

Don’t worry about the curse, we’ll just conveniently overlook that part.

This can be just a standalone (or my preference) the beginning of a nice long serial but either one is great.

Requirements:
1. During ghost story time, Angel’s story must scare Cordy and make her jump and Angel gets lots of amusement from it. She gets mad about it and hits him a couple times ending in a small wrestling (in that very flirtatious way and they both get a bit hot) match and they make Buffy & Xander very jealous.
2. Must have some smut…okay, I’m lenient, this isn’t a must, but it’s a huge plus! LOLOL

FICS WRITTEN (SO FAR) FOR THIS CHALLENGE ARE:
Campfire Entertainment (Cydnestorm)
Flaming Embers (Cydnestorm) – A sequel to Campfire Entertainment
One S’More Unto the Breach (DamnSkippy)

(If your fic has been accidentally left off the list please contact the Archive Editor.)
