I read that story here on TSR... I think. I remember that one pare of Spike and Buffy came from very dark world. I believe Spike mentioned that he was one making food for Buffy to avoid poisoning and one to make graves for all her friends and loved ones that was gone one by one. They let other Buffy and Spike hold they baby alot cause they saw sadness and longing in they eyes. And Spike tells Spike to keep the faith cause they might get lucky too.
