==Synopsis==
 
==Synopsis==
Feeling depressed, [[Spike]] had ordered his bugs to take him to the dark side of the moon, without revealing his objective for the journey. While there, Spike lamented his relationship with [[Buffy]], while the bugs determined it was time for them to intervene. They caught him and forcibly brought him to the solarium. Although Spike feared that they would let him burn in the sunlight, in fact, the bugs had redressed the room to look like a beach and had replaced the regular glass with [[Necro-tempered glass|Necrotempered glass]].

TBD.
 
Meanwhile some lunar [[demons]] gathered around the ship. Although initially appreciative of the new solarium, Spike subsequently rejected it and while getting dressed again, a [[Moon Frog]] jumped onto the solarium. Spike immediately ordered a bug squad to attack it in protection of the ship. However, when they opened the hatch, the creature crawled in and attacked them. The bugs fled, believing their prophesied Night of the Long Tongues was upon them. Spike attacked it and led it to the solarium, but there he was ambushed and captured by other lunar demons.
 
 
Having captured Spike, the demons forced the bugs to lift off, making plans to jettison Spike, was they were in Space.

The story was set after "[[Apart (of me)]]", but before "[[???]]".
*Spike's intake of alcohol while brooding over Buffy is similar to what he went through long ago by [[Drusilla]] in "[[Lovers Walk]]" after she left him for a [[Chaos Demon]].
 
*Spike had flashbacks of when Buffy's robot arm was ripped off in "''[[On Your Own, Part Two]]''", as well as when he left her in ''"[[Apart (of Me), Part Three]]".''

There was a time when I thought Buffy was pregnant and I could take care of her and we'd maybe have a play at a ''normal'' life. Talk about ''fooling'' yourself. Is there any clearer sign you've become a boring git than being pitied by the bugs?"
