Summary: Some demons aren't in our dimension to start trouble.  

Some demons just wanna do a job.  

Heck.  Some demons just want to get out of their home dimension, because they're teeming with others of their own kind, they're crowded, they're boring, life is monotonous.

Any job will do.  Even plumbing a dying city in the human world. 

But then... Dreams get in the way.  An out-of-practice Morpheus demon just trying to make an honest buck can easily get sucked into the desperate, guilty REM-sleep of a Slayer who's just tragically lost her lover in the ending of the world a month or two ago.  At which point, things tend to spin rapidly out of control.  Because tinkering with mortal dreams?

Definitely not in the work-contract.

NOTE:  This is tangentially part of the "Souls In Bondage" series, is really just kind of a gift for Magnus, and will literally make ZERO sense if you haven't read "LA Is the Hell You Make It"

Summary: After nearly five months spent in a Hell that was strangely like Heaven, Buffy and Spike have come back to the real world.  And guess what?  There’s a reason why Hell was so much fun.  For one thing, there weren’t old friends and ex-Watchers there, and the ur-Slayer didn’t have to figure out what to tell her baby Slayers about the whole, ‘in a lifelong, committed relationship with a vampire’ sitch.  Also, you know, now there was giant Dawn to deal with, and figuring out where to set up housekeeping if everything went to… well, hell. 
Also, you know, there was that whole business with the Scourge.  Couldn’t drop the ball on that. 

Note:  This is a sequel to “LA Is the Hell You Make It”, and is Part 3 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: Inspired by the “The Big Bad Twilight Revealed?” discussion at the Bloodshedverse. No offense is meant by this fic. It’s just a bit of fun. ;)

Summary: Team Angel has gone through the looking glass.  But this time, they happened to do it a little differently.  See, the one thing the Senior Partners didn’t count on was Buffy. 
Normally, the Powers That Be can’t affect things in a hell dimension ruled by entities who suck at losing so bad they cheat their own lawyers.  But when you not only have a bunch of Champions… but also a bonafide PTB conduit stuck in your hellscape like a fly in the ointment, it causes serious problems for hellgod types… and really makes things interesting for a bunch of lost souls and demons trying to make a difference in Hell-A.
Also, you know…  Who knew Hell could be such a nice vacation spot for a vampire and Slayer who just wanted a damn moment alone?

Note:  This is a sequel to “The Ethnocentrism of Vampthropology”, and is Part 2 of a series If you haven’t read Part 1 you might be able to keep up, but you’ll have missed some important stuff.  Read on at your own risk.

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: Buffy has a run-in with the Scourge, and she learns a few things from them—about the nature of vampires, the Slayer line, herself, and about a certain bleach-blond vampire who vanished into flames at the end of the world a year ago, and took all the heat of her heart with him.  

She needs answers. But when she rings in from Rome to LA to reach the one vampire she has left, she finds out something that she never thought possible. What--and who--she finds in her old hometown sends her on a journey of self-discovery and reunification the likes of which she never dreamed... one that bids fair to set both broken souls and bound demons free.
