In Progress: (updated 7-1-17)

Stolen Memories: Will post as chapters complete, with the intention of finishing by September. Estimated length: 15-20 chapters.

Scattered Echoes: The next phase of the universe that began with Echoes of Beljoxa is well underway. First chapters will post this month. Estimated length: Friggin' Ginormous Novel

Light the Way: On hiatus until later in the year. Estimated total length: 50-60 chapters.

Tales from Caritas East: Posting as chapters complete. Dragging my feet not because the muse has bailed, but because said muse is easily distracted by less weighty and difficult material. Estimated length: 35-40 chapters.

Next Up: Here's what I'll be working on as the above list gets shorter and I get the muse under some semblance of control.

Parley to Partners (working title): The "what if it changed canon" angle of Prelude to Parley. Still ironing out the details, but this story is expected to house a massive rewrite of my old, abandoned story "Amendments," and end up in the 20-25 chapters range in total length.

The Sound of Her Voice: A fun, lighthearted, post-season five story of death, loneliness, and being haunted by one's greatest regret.

A Touch of Her Style: My take on the first challenge I ever posted. What if the slayer who changed Spike into someone who wanted to help the Chosen One wasn't a cute girl in California, but a young mother in New York? This one breaks canon long before it ever begins, but opens in season 2.

Fun Stuff:

Zab in the Echoesverse: The amazing Zabjade has decided to have a little fun with the pillow situation in Echoes of Beljoxa. She's added one hilarious pillow story to the series, with another slated to be added later.

The Tame Squirrel Remix: Imagine Tales from Caritas East told in chronological order. It would lose something in the realms of narrative flow and suspense, but it might be fun for your second reading of the story. I'll post a link to the Remix when it's ready, probably soon after Caritas East has completed.

Brag Board:

     

  Echoes of Beljoxa also earned nominations in Round 32 for Best Author, Best (Spuffy) Angst, Best (Spuffy) Drama. and Best (Spuffy) Pairing.

Summary: Season 2, but with a different pre-series history. Robin Wood moves to Sunnydale to back up Buffy in her on-going battles with Drusilla. But when Buffy's romance with Angel takes a dark and dangerous turn, Robin determines his assistance won't be enough, and calls in some back up of his own: the old family friend who wears his mother's coat.
