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: 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 universe had a few things go wrong in it.
So an order was put in for a second go, by the Powers.
When a Slayer took down her first Master, in LA,
when Whistler was sent in to point a vampire with a soul
at a girl who had no clue what he was up to,
things slid a little sideways, onto a slightly different track.

What is 'normal', really?
Who is prophesied?
And what happens if you give the ingredients a stir
before you send your dish back to the kitchen and ask for a new version of the same meal?

Summary: Spike sacrifices himself to save Dawn and the world, forcing Buffy to question everything she's ever known. A story that diverges from canon during "The Gift". Banner made by the amazingly talented javajunkie247.

(Which, yes, is yet more kinky sex.)
Having read the comics or the previous story isn't necessary; just know that Spike and Buffy are happily together and have been magically locked into a sex store, the poor things. Guess what they've been doing?

Summary:

Part Two of the Something Wicked series  (S5, beginning with "Buffy vs Dracula")

Spuffy have been together for a while now.  Things have been great.  The Scoobies have more or less accepted the reality of their couplehood, Spike finally has his own place, so there’s plenty of thoroughly excellent shag-time, and college is kind of fun when you have a worldly, undead tutor to poke fun at your instructors and help you remember your lessons with fascinating anecdotes or, when that fails, incredibly memorable sexy-times.  Life is actually, like, bordering on good

But then Mr. Eurovamp 2000 blows into town and causes a bunch of jealousy.  And then Buffy starts having a bunch of crappy Slayer dreams about glowy purply stuff.  And Dawn is going off the hook even more than usual, and Mom is acting weird…  And, as if there’s not enough to deal with, Buffy’s pretty sure that idiot Riley Finn is still lurking around town trying to come up with a reason to shoot her boyfriend…

Buffy should have known things couldn’t stay yummy for long.  She probably would have started to worry if it had.

Summary: The citizens of Sunnydale find themselves acting on their darkest desires, and the Scoobies' summer vacation hangs in the balance. When Spike turns out to be the only one Buffy can trust, her carefully constructed black-and-white world starts looking a lot gray-shadier. Set in the summer after season 4
