Summary: I know I have a few stories in progress that I should finish first but I came up with this idea a few months ago and have had a lot of fun developing it. It's based on a Blackmirror episode *spoiler alert* the couple who are falling in love are part of an app to find your perfect match. They are 0.1% of a simulation.
Fifteen year old Buffy meets Jenny Calender's brother who is a technopagan developing a computer program to help people find their One so Buffy gets to see over a thousand simulations where she meets her match and they may or may not overcome the odds.
Summary: Riley stays in Sunnydale, and pretty soon there’s a baby on the way.
 
Response to knightowl’s challenge “Riley’s Baby” – Goes AU at the end of “Into the Woods” per the challenge, rewrite of late s5/s6. There will actually be three stories; this one focuses on the main romantic relationships, while the second will be mostly Spike, and the third will unite the threads to wrap things up.

Summary:  A sequel to Even Demons Need Friends. If you haven’t read that short s4 fic, all you really need to know is that this is a non-canon Season 5 in which Glory is there searching for her Key, Joyce is sick, Spike is unchipped and living in another city. At the end of the previous story, he’d asked Buffy to call him if she needed help.
They don’t have a relationship yet; they weren’t even much more than canon Season Four semi-enemies, with an unrecognized and unacknowledged sexual attraction, when Ethan’s spell to turn Giles into a Fyral demon wrought some important changes in a very short period of time. But not changes sufficient to make it likely that a slayer, with a human boyfriend and a firm belief in what’s right and acceptable, and an old vampire, who has just regained his ability to hunt and feed, are likely to see any kind of a future for them. In spite of some surprising revelations about how they may feel about each other.
Definitely an AU Season Five. Some things will be familiar, some things obviously will not, so don’t go looking for an identical timeline or identical events.
