    Summary

    So, this round of Seasonal Spuffy has come to an end, so it's okay for me to post my entry other places.
    Some Spells Have Lingering Effects... is a semi-sequel to Muzzled in which Spike and Oz became friends while being held and tortured by the Initiative. Their different relationship and Buffy's earlier knowledge of what was going on in the labs, made for a different relationship between Spike and Buffy. One that continued during Willow's My Will Be Done spell. They have established a bit of a working friendship as Spike helps Buffy with her slaying. This fic is a Spuffy interlude between Muzzled and some future fic that will take place when Oz returns. Both the original fic, and the intended sequel will focus on OZ and Spike as much as, or more than, Spike and Buffy.

    Summary

    A what if fic in which Buffy and Spike are sent back in time (separately, and unbeknownst to each other) from sometime not terribly long after "Chosen". Think AtS season five. Their mission is to prevent Glory from opening the portal and thus prevent Buffy's death and reincarnation; thereby preventing the rise of the First Evil. For whatever reason, they both end up in Season Four, rather than when they need to be.

    Summary

    Set some time in the future where some of the events of season eight comics have occurred, but several years before this takes place. The hellmouth in Cleveland has become very active and someone they'd assumed was dead has requested help for himself and the slayers remaining there. Buffy to the rescue....

    Summary

    Buffy/Spike if you squint, this is a future story that takes place when Spike has been dust for many years. It's set in the world of Hearts Breaking Even and The Last Good-bye, but many years later. Buffy has a daughter and meets her English teacher, who reminds her too much of someone else. They like each other immediately, but dating can be complicated when you look like the daughter's father...Not a reunion fic as such, but close enough? If the Prologue looks familiar, it's because it was a ficlet for sb_fag_ends Halloween prompts. It's short, and the story begins right after it.

    Summary

    Post NFA - Set very loosely in the LA of After the Fall comics. All you really need to know is that Angel and Spike survived the demon army the Senior Partners threw at them. When that didn’t work, the Sr. Partners encased the city of Los Angeles in a dimensional bubble, which allowed the demons to quickly take over the city. Humans are rapidly becoming an endangered species, although some of those unable to find hidden shelters are being kept as slaves before being killed. Angel and Spike work to save as many of them as they can. Because the comics at IDW wandered around a bit, I’ve decided not to worry about “canon”, it’s just too complicated. So, I’ve borrowed the setting and mention of a dragon, but that’s it. Don’t look for specific demon lords or events. This is my story set in that world.

    Summary

    The challenge was: What if Spike was the one to save Buffy when she was staked by a vampire, not Riley?

    We begin with an altered version of that scene and go on from there. Spike's feelings are what they are, but perhaps not as well hidden as in canon, and his having saved her life gives Buffy a new appreciation for him. Glory makes an appearance, but is dealt with a bit sooner than in canon, and without Buffy's death; Riley still takes off for SA; and Joyce has surgery. And then the Council shows up....

    Summary

    The fourth and last in the series that began with The Gentleman Wore Leather. This one is multi-chaptered and ends on a happier note than the others did. (Happier for most of the characters....) It's time for Buffy's Cruciamentum and she has help this time around...

    Summary

    Sequel to The Gentleman Takes His Leave, which was a sequel to The Gentleman Work Leather. Turns out Spike didn't leave town, Angel still lost his soul, and Buffy hasn't killed him yet because they want to put the soul back.

    Summary

    Little scenario sparked by last month's comic and a preview of this month's. No doubt I'll be Jossed by next week, but until then, we can pretend this is how it will go. :) Buffy thinks Spike wants to be platonic friends so she tries speed dating...

    Summary

    For those who've not followed this AU Season Five series, there is no Buffybot because Spike has already had the real thing, and he and Buffy have a budding relationship that is veering between good friends and lovers.

    The first ficlet – pure pwp – is “How Can Something So Cold Make Me So Hot?” a very short, non-canon story, in which Spike helps Buffy out with a bad sunburn. An eye-opening experience for both of them...

    Its sequel is “When the Ice Has Melted” and it begins the next day in the same now-AU Sunnydale where the events of the first story occurred.
    No porn at all in this one, with or without plot, as Buffy and Spike deal with the aftermath of their encounter and what it revealed to them about their relationship and possible feelings for each other. Riley doesn’t take it well, which drives Buffy and Spike even closer together.

    That closeness has become obvious to everyone, even Xander, by the time this third fic begins a day or so after the end of “When the Ice Has Melted”. We jump from that little scene to some time later when it’s approaching Christmas.

    Summary

    A sequel to "Double Bubble Toil and...." this fic pics up a week or so later. Willow has yet to recover her power and is biding her time while Giles has asked the Coven to send him a magic mentor for her. Buffy and Spike have an uneasy friendship thing where she admits he has some good qualities and he keeps her secret while still trying to coax her into a less platonic relationship. Due to the non-canon events of the first story, adherence to canon here is a sometime thing. It comes and goes - many things having been changed by Willow's extended version of her My Will Be Done spell.
    Written for my friend, R.

    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.
