    Summary

    Begins just post NFA during the battle. Very brief Spike/Buffy reunion that is spoiled by a demon. Spike doesn't handle having had Buffy and lost her all with the same few minutes very well, but Xander insists he has to live. Getting that to happen is much harder than Xander had bargained for, but eventually his patience pays off in ways he never expected.

    Summary

    Pretty much a fill-in-the-blanks ficlet that takes off from when Buffy finds out about Spike's soul. Somehow, he got off the cross and was recovered the next time we saw him. Could have happened like this.

    Summary

    AN: A sequel to "Slayer's Night Off" (in which Spike and Buffy learn some things about each other and Riley makes a big mistake), this first chapter was a short response to a Taming the Muse prompt a couple of years ago. I always intended for it to go on, so I may or may not have posted it anywhere besides the Taming community. Be that as it may, it is now the first chapter of a wip story that picks up the night after “Slayer’s Night Off.” Chapters One and Two in this entry, additions as I polish them up.

    Summary

    Buffy goes out on Halloween for some fun at the Bronze, but there are a lot of vampires that didn't get the memo about it being their night off. Which gives Buffy and Spike a chance to learn something about their relationship that they hadn't expected.

    Summary

    One of those "what if" between the lines kind of things. What if Xander had been watching the byplay between Buffy and Spike when she opened Willow's gift? And then overheard a conversation between Tara, Buffy and Spike? Would he put 2 and 2 together?

    Summary

    Set in the future of the world of Hearts Breaking Even. Buffy is allowed one night with adult William before she goes back to her lonely life in her own time. (Written for a trope bingo prompt. The trope was "virgin") It could be seen as a sequel to that fic.

    Summary

    comic verse: Spike has been off on his voyage of self-discovery (aka "learn to move on") while Buffy, who refused to tell him she didn't want him to go, has been slaying zompires with Dowling. News of the fiery crash of the bugs' space ship has reached them, but no word about Spike. What does Buffy want for Christmas? (Written for a banner by OKDeanna)

    Summary

    Buffy and Spike find themselves dealing with some unexpected residual effects from Willow's spell. To their surprise, those feelings don't go away when the spell is cleared up. Can an unsoulled and eventually unchipped vampire and Heaven's Chosen One be in a relationship? How would everyone else feel about that? Some Initiative bashing, and Xander is a jerk for awhile, but he gets over it.

    Summary

    Buffy follows a demon through a portal and gets stuck in Victoria England for several days. Fortunately, she only has to explain herself to a young boy and some curious sheep. Although she's only there until Giles can reopen the portal and bring her home, it's long enough for her to make a lasting impression on little William, and for him to remain a pleasant memory in Buffy's mind. When Spike comes to Sunnydale a year or so later, it doesn't take long for them to recognize each other. In this AU season 2 and 3 fic, that leads to a lot of complications...

    It will be posted in multi-chapter sections rather than one chapter at a time.

    Summary

    Summary: Based on my own AU fic “Hearts Breaking Even” in which a young Buffy spent a couple of days with a nine-year-old William (after jumping through a time portal after a demon). When Spike comes to Sunnydale as a 120+ year-old vampire, they eventually recognize each other and adult Spike and slightly older Buffy find themselves strongly attracted. Needless to say, the fic eventually ended Spuffy, and we can assume they stayed together after that story ended. Now Buffy has been sent by the PtB back in time again. But only for one night....

    Summary

    Written for a request at the fundraiser for Spikeslovebite, the request was to peek in on "our" Spike and Buffy in the Sunnydale to which Buffy had been sent in "Prologue to Life/I Know You" and in which Spike had joined her by the very end of that story. Extensive author's notes will offer a lengthier explanation of the "verse" created in that fic for those who aren't familiar with it. All you need to know about this one is that Buffy is trying to plan a wedding and deal with Adam at the same time. Very non-canon in most respects, as is to be expected in a Sunnydale where things have started being different as soon as "our" Buffy showed up.

    Summary

    Buffy is about to marry (somewhat unenthusiastically) a Shanshued Angel when vamp vibes and a familiar song cause her to realize Spike may not be as dead as she thought. The planned wedding goes downhill from there....

    Summary

    Begins shortly after the first few issues of Buffy Comics Season Nine. While a working knowledge of what happened in Season Eight and the beginning of Nine might be useful, I don't think it's necessary as it's not all that relevant to the plot here, which is more about Buffy and Spike working their way (two steps forward, one back) back into a relationship than it is about the comics plot stuff. Sufficient to know that season eight ended badly (world saved, but some deaths occurred and relationships were shattered) and Buffy has taken much of the blame. She's working in a minimum wage job, slaying at night, and sees Spike once in a while when he and his ship of bugs (just go with it) are around. She's just moved out of Dawn/Xander's apartment and into one of her own when our story begins and goes totally AU from anything comic-related.

    Summary

    Follows "Old Friends - Again". What is Giles going to do with Ethan now that he has him? (This should really be Part 2 of this verse. You should read "Old Friends Again" before this so you know what's going on.)

    Summary

    A more or less gen fic that has strong hints of Gethan and is followed by a much shorter ficlet that is definitely Gethan. In this one, some knowledge of the comics verse wouldn't hurt, but it won't help that much either, as this is very non-comics-canon. All you need to know is that the new Slayers/Watchers Council headquarters is in the UK, and so, apparently, is some version of the Initiative. When Giles and Buffy accept Riley's offer to take Ethan out before he is "neutralized", they find a couple of surprises waiting for them...

    Summary

    Set somewhere during the Old Friends - Again verse, after Spike has been back a while. Buffy gets a surprise visitor at an awkward moment.... But it all works out....

    A sequel of sorts to that Gethan/gen fic. I don’t think it’s necessary to have read that one, but some knowledge of the Buffy comics would be useful.
