Spike+Dru

Spike and Drusilla skating (vintage postcard manips, part 1)

Wow, it's been a while since my last post. But now the Christmas holidays are here and I finally have some time for fandom stuff again.

Here are some vintage postcard manips that I made as a contribution for this year's noel_of_spike. The cards are from my mother's vintage cards collection.

I hope all of you had a great Christmas or other holidays!

ETA: For those who are interested, I've added the original postcards I used as bases. As you'll notice, I changed the colouring to make it look more like night, to make it plausible that Spike and Dru are not burning up.

Spike and Drusilla skating (vintage postcard manips, part 2)

Here's another set of images of Spike and Dru skating. I made these for nekid_spike (Winter Wonderland prompt). Again, the vintage postcards I used as a base are from my mother's collection.

ETA: and here are the original postcards that formed the base images. They are a lot of fun, because there is a postcard for each day of the week, and at the bottom there is a short poem (in Dutch) telling the story of a budding romance.

In my manips I left out this bottom part, because I didn't have the time or energy to translate the poems into English. And the story didn't really fit Spike and Dru anyway. That's also the main reason I didn't use the Monday card, because it would make no sense for Spike to visit Drusilla in her house. (Also, that card is a bit damaged and I didn't have time to restore it.) But below I'm providing English translations for the curious. Warning: they're very literal and with no attempt at rhyming.
