Born 1954 but like old cheese and wine I like to think I've improved with age LOL. Love the Buffyverse and adore Spike. Luckily my husband is also a fan (even of fic) and fully supportive of my vices. Other than that I'm rather dull. Co-own a commercial cleaning company (after 22 years in mainframe computing), dream of a lottery win and retirement LOL. Love to write and love to read. No living children but lots of dogs...hence the "pack".

 

My Beta, and dearest sister of the heart, is Mary Tanner (Scarlett2U).  Her talent,knowledge, generous heart, quick mind and love of Spuffy have been invaluable to me.  Her encouragement and skills are something I would wish for any writer.  She is also a skillful comma surgeon!

Summary: requested prompt: “At the end of S7 Lies My Parents Told Me I would like to have Buffy lying on her bed thinking of every time Giles has let her down, betrayed her. Late in the night, after everyone has fallen asleep, she makes her way down to the basement to talk to Spike because she can’t keep the anger and hurt she is feeling to herself. While talking with the vampire, she comes to another realization: that Spike is the only one she can vent to and she can count on no matter what.”

Summary: Written in 2006 as an entry at watchersdiaries on LJ I never posted it here.  Canon Spuffy is implied as this takes place many centuries after Not Fade Away.  Does not include comic canon.
Demons roam the world freely as men huddle in fear. A champion must be forged, one that will stand in the breach and combat the evil. Only a powerful worker of magic can bring such a wonder to pass.

Disclaimer: The story idea is mine but it is based in the "universe" created and owned by Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, UPN, WB and Fox networks. I derive no compensation for the use of their intellectual properties.

Summary: Time Travel fic begins twenty years after NFA then returns to BtVS S4. Dawn meets someone from her distant past that may hold the answer to how she could be the ‘key’ to setting events on a better and happier course for those she loves the most. Can she make enough changes to keep tragedy from taking so many loved ones away before their time and those who survive live less than full lives?
No comic events involved in this story. Prompted by this story request during the Spikeslovebite/Kain auction: “I’d like to see another time-travel Spuffy story!  However, unlike most time-travel stories where it’s Spike or Buffy themselves that go back to fix things, I’d like to see Dawn be the one.  In a post-Chosen, post-NFA future that is not comic compliant and in which both Spike and Buffy are dead (the circumstances are entirely up to you, but they were not together and not happy), Dawn explores her latent powers and discovers that she can not only travel between dimensions but also in time.  She decides to go back (how far back is up to you) and sort out Spike & Buffy so they won’t die miserable and apart.  Maybe she also helps her younger self come to terms with being The Key and what that means, if applicable?  I don’t mind who writes it, but would prefer for it to be long-ish so the Spuffy can develop slowly rather than fall-into-each-others-arms-at-the-drop-of-a-hat scenario.  The only thing I’m adamant about really is that the chip either never gets put in or it comes out asap, allowing for Spike to *choose* to change rather than be forced to.”

Summary: There's a glitch using those Ghorah eggs as a surprising result develops from Dawns attempt to bring back her mother. Those developments both thrill and horrify Spike as the scoobies and Buffy discover the man behind the mask. Can a mothers love heal and bind or should the past be left in the grave? Setting: Season 5 mid episode "Forever" going AU from there. Liberal changes made to the ritual Dawn uses for the resurrection spell. A/N and disclaimer: All characters and concept belong to Joss Whedon and ME, Fox, WB, UPN and other corporations affiliated with same. Thanks to Mr. Whedon's generous permission, I am using his creations in my original plot for no financial gain on my part. Bits of dialogue from transcripts of "Forever" written by Marti Noxon. The true "PTB" have given William the surname of Pratt. For the purposes of this story I researched my little heart out on that surname and chose a prominent branch of Pratt's (adding my own fictional portion). Thus I offer my apologies to those actual family members who might not appreciate my little addition. Spike's immediate family (father and paternal grandmother in particular) are purely the construct of my imagination.

Summary: Things had gone steadily pear shaped ever since the resurrection that brought Buffy back into the world but far from back to life. The vampire that loves her is challenged to know the right thing to do to actually help as things go from bad to worse. Meanwhile a witch with more power and insecurities than is safe for the world is struggling to avoid the temptation of magic. All in all it’s a typical holiday season in Sunnydale. Maybe it’s time for a bit of an intervention of the helpful kind?

Setting: S6 post Wrecked (Nov.27, 2001) December 24, 2001; Christmas eve
