  1. Summary

    The Barbverse is an AU which branches off from canon after "The Gift" with an alternate version of Buffy's resurrection. A saga of sex, violence, violent sex, pizza, gods, demons, ex-demons, ghosts, road trips, black magic, white magic, sorta greyish magic, felonies and misdemeanors, cooking with pig's blood, ethical dilemmas, the importance (or not) of the soul, tying the knot, the care and feeding of small children (demonic and otherwise), life after undeath, the founding of dynasties, the folding of laundry, Ultimate Evil, blood play, channel surfing, true love and (ooh, that word) redemption, in which is explored the question of whether or not one Buffy Anne Summers, vampire slayer extraordinaire, and one William the Bloody, vampire of infinite heart and limited ethics, can reach a certain degree of mutual accommodation after diverse discourses and considerable ass-kicking.

    The main pairing of the series is Buffy/Spike, but many of the stories are gennish and/or focus on other characters. It currently comprises two and a half novels, half a dozen novellas, lots and lots of short stories, and more drabbles than you can shake a stick at, and spans some fifty years of the characters' lives.

    Summary

    Post-Season 5, an alternate reality take on Season 6, but not so crazy-alternate that anyone's unrecognisable. Starts with strong Spike and Dawn friendship, and builds from there. Just lots of small tweaks that pack a punch - like the odd bit of honest communication amongst the Scoobies.

    Runner Up for Best Angst - Spuffy in round 30 of the SunnyD Awards.

    Summary

    He was the only person who ever left her whose abandonment she'd truly earned, and he was the only one who kept coming back.

    Events went differently in Season 6, after "Gone", and Buffy and her friends try to get back to what passes for normal on the Hellmouth. But wouldn't you know, as soon as they beat back one interdimensional baddie, the portents of yet another "dark power rising" start to appear. Unfortunately, Willow has seen that this time the demon threat will succeed in wiping Sunnydale off the map — especially if it can recruit the Slayer of Slayers to its side — and that's the best case scenario. This permanent WIP is intended as an alternate season of Buffy.

    Note from the poster: This story is entirely by Anna S. (eliade), who has generously allowed me to post her fic to AO3. It is a classic of Buffy fanfic, unfinished and likely to remain so. It has only been available via Wayback Machine for the last several years, and deserves a wider readership. A readership which will soon discover a rich and compelling tale by a master of dialog, characterization, and plotting.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Possibly the best BtVS fanfic ever written, for all it's unfinished.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the classic Buffy/Spike epics -- they gave Spike a soul long before it was cool. Read it. READ IT NOW.

    Summary

    In which Spike and Xander are needy, introspective chocolate-lovers and two weeks is kind of almost like forever, or maybe just a prelude.

    Warnings: food sex, hurt/comfort, character cliches, dialect, poetry, abrupt but positive endings, rambling, ret-conning, over-attention to detail, country music, cheap cider, loving abuse of Angel, gratuitous additional shipping, bondage, bloodplay, spanking, rimming, British science fiction, Japanese ghosts, and evidence that the author can't write actual plot worth a damn.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This was the fic that introduced me to Spike/Xander. Still a lot of fun.
