Fandom: BtVS crossover with H.C. Andersen’s fairytale The Little Match Girl
Disclaimer: I do not own the characters of BtVS or the fairytales. Buffy was created by Joss Whedon (Mutant Enemy Productions). The fairytale was written by H.C. Andersen.
It was nearing night when he saw her. The child was obviously freezing, trying to gain the attention of people passing by. He knew it would snow soon. He could feel it in the air.
She looked homeless but clean, young and innocent. She didn’t belong out here.
As he walked closer, he could see what the girl was selling: sulphur matches. He had no need for such a thing but still felt in his pocket for a coin or two. He felt like being generous tonight. If all went well he would recite his love-poem to the beautiful Cecily.
A/N (edit): H.C. Andersen was a Danish writer. Thanks goes to MarcusRowland for knowing the English title. Let me know if you’re not familiar with the fairytale. Picture London in the late 1880's.
