"Making sense of canon. It's a Sigyn thing."

                                       ~ Convi

 All of my canon compliant stories, long or short, have been grouped into "series," so they can be easily searched. I have them split by season, on the whole, in chronological order, though no one has to read them that way. Every story always makes sense by itself. Non-canon compliant stories are either in their own series, or stand alone.

Sigyn writes fanfiction when she can't help herself. Thus, she throws herself into it wholeheartedly, and enjoys the freedom to use words like, "Agony" and "Mercurial" and not feel any shame about it. She can allow her ellipses to breed wildly, her adjectives to proliferate beyond all control, and her dialogue to continue past the point where anyone could possibly care. Spike is probably one of the most interesting characters she's ever encountered, and she desperately wants to explore his progression and growth. As a result, most of her stories are pretty much in canon, trying to make sense of the character as he is depicted in series. She loves reviews, even bad ones, and feel free to contact her -- her life is small and often full of quiet moments available for others. 

All stories go up at Archive of Our Own after they're published here.

Summary: Spike and Buffy are being inventive: Buffy’s the head cheerleader, and William her seductive English tutor; Queen Fi pleasured by her enslaved eunuch; Will and Buff in an illicit tryst in a posh boarding school; the follower of Lucifer properly tormented for turning to the side of the devil. A lot of things can happen in five hours.
Starts fluffy, eventually gets kinda heavy, pretty much running the gamut of a lot of sexuality.

Summary: While under her Will Be Done spell, Willow just happened to say “I don’t care about anything,” and as a result, wanders blithely off as a vengeance demon. Spike and Buffy are left to protect a threatened Xander and a blind Giles while under the effect of a powerful love charm. But all is not happy in paradise – they’re still constantly fighting, and Angel is determined to end the spell they’re under. In a desperate attempt to collect the tattered remains of all their lives, ex-watcher Wesley Windham-Pryce is called in to try and play marriage counselor between the vampire and the slayer. Not entirely as crack fic or as fluffy as the premise would suggest, though it starts funny.



Summary:     It’s Christmas Eve, and Buffy and Spike have been married all of two weeks, but the past, the present, and the future all seem bent on tearing them apart. Or maybe it’s not them. Maybe it’s just Buffy. A little holiday fic set in the same universe as my story Care, where Willow became a vengeance demon in Something Blue, and everyone else was just left to go along with the spells she left behind.

Summary: Spike’s handwriting was dreadful. It was some twisted amalgamation of cursive, with a weird left-handed slant to it, twisting every which way on lined paper ripped from a spiral notebook. It was half crumpled, had cigarette ash stains, smears, thumbprints. It smelled and looked as if he had spilled bourbon on it at least once. And it was made even more illegible by numerous scribblings and crossings out. Spike's specifications for the Buffybot.
