    This is the sweetest, I wish there was more, I couldn’t get enough of it. An absolutely perfect fic.

    Summary

    In a world where soulmates have the ability to write on each other's skin, Spike finds himself shackled to a five-year-old Buffy, who (for once) listens to her mother's advice about not handing out personal information. With no way of tracking the annoyance down, Spike is forced to endure a decade of unavoidable communication.

    When Spike finally arrives in Sunnydale and discovers his soulmate is none other than the Slayer, he revels in the notion of a destined death match, but the Powers That Be have other plans...

    One of — if not *the* — best slow burn fics I’ve ever read. It’s just so perfect!

    Read this originally on FF.net and let me tell you, years later and it’s still one of my all-time favorite fics. I actively pray it’ll come back one day.

    Summary

    After extensive surgery and rehabilitation, V has reclaimed something of a life... Unfortunately, her new life is carved and sculpted for her by Arasaka. Observe V as she departs from Night City and experiences life in Japan under the watchful eye of the Arasaka Corporation.

    Author note: I find the lack of Sandayu Oda content upsetting. No one's going to write Oda/V? Fine, I'll do it myself. Eventual Sandayu content, implied Takemura stuff. (Constant work in progress, title may change later. New to Ao3, not new to fanfiction.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A rare-pair, this fic is so worth reading. The characterization is truly amazing and the plot/pacing/everything else has me hooked!

    And yes, this is *exactly* the slow burn you’re looking for.
