Summary: A sketchy Christmas in the Inkverse.
Be warned: this is a shamelessly sinful corruption of my favourite Christmas poem. I'll never hear it the same way again *blushes*
And there are pictures. If smutty art's not your thing, please run.

Summary: Challenge response By Unknown Poet (or whatever) by Versheenah
Sometime in the first half of the 20th century one of Spike's/William's lost journals filled to the brim with his "bad" poetry had been found and got published under Unknown Poet. His poetry's become popular enough to be considered classic and is studied in schools and colleges. Spike's unaware of it until one day he accidentally hears the Slayer talking about/reading aloud one of his poems.
I don't much care how that happens. Whether it's s2 Buffy trying to impress Angel by being mature and sophisticated. Or s3 Buffy having an English Lit assignment. Or s4 Buffy writing an essay on it or whatever.
I just want the hilarity of Spike's reaction to the fact that his poetry got public recognition and that Buffy the freaking Slayer likes his poetry. And then the hilarity of Buffy finding out whose poetry she likes.
Must have:
- going AU when Spike hears how Buffy reads/talks about his poem(s)
- Spuffy ending (well, duh)

Summary: The Scourge are done for.  The baby Slayers are back on track, nicely settled under Xander and Willow’s careful tutelage.  Dawn is right-sized.  Things with Giles are… steady-ish.  And Buffy and Spike have found a nice safe haven away from it all where they can just be.  Dial in case of Apocalypse.  Sort out the gray areas on their own time and terms.  Maybe redefine the whole relationship between demons and humanity, and vamps and humans… and of course Slayers and vamps.  You know; given enough time and… social intercourse.

Anyway, that was the theory.  Then the whole thing started with the military, and Amy.  And then Willow and Xander decide to show up on their doorstep.  And there was that thing with Faith and Giles, and…  Jeez.  Hellmouths weren’t the only things that keep rumbling.   

Well, at least they’d closed the book on Angel, right?

(Note:  This is a sequel to “Home Is Where the Scourge Is”, and is Part 4 of a series.  If you haven’t read the rest, you’ll have no idea what the bloody hell is going on.  I mean, you can; I can’t stop you.  But a lot of what’s happening in here will be taking place in a world unrecognizable to the uninitiated.)
 
Summary: Spike indulges in a little friendly payback after that bad scene in the alley in Dead Things. Buffy doesn't mind. Much. Could this be the reason they seem so chummy at her birthday party in Older and Far Away?
