Summary: My way of meeting the four wonderful challenges put forth in March 2007, by Seven_Seasons . I'm rearranged them so as to make each one a separate chapter, rather than all being on one page without much distance between them. They are so different, I think that will be a better arrangement.  One is nothing but fluffy Spuffy, one is terribly grim, and two are suitably angsty for what was going on at that time.  Each one is based on an actual episode that has been twisted to meet the challenge requirements – any dialogue that sounds familiar was probably written by those much more talented writers at Mutant Enemy, rather than by me. J
 Here are the challenges as put up on the Seven Seasons community:
 1)     Giles doesn't leave, and he's there when he finds Spike crying against the tree.  How does Giles find out about Buffy and manage to be at the house when all the Scoobies return?  How does he react to seeing Spike in tears at Buffy’s return?
 
2)     What if Spike isn't the only one to hear Buffy say that her friends dragged her out of Heaven?  Who has overheard her and how do they react to the news--as well as the fact that Buffy confided in Spike and not her friends?
 
3)     Riley returns-absent any rebound wife.  How does Buffy react while remembering how desperately she'd run to catch him and stop him from leaving her?  Does she still want him back?
 
4)     Spike knew about the resurrection and tried to stop it, afraid that Buffy would 'come back wrong.'  What is he afraid of?

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: Dawn, noun
1. the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise. 
2. the beginning of a phenomenon or period of time, especially one considered favourable.

Summary: Set after the events of the season 5 AtS series finale "Not Fade Away". Buffy finds herself drawn to Los Angeles to warn Angel of a vivid dream evoking what appears to be a dangerous unfulfilled prophecy of the entire city in ruins. But it's her rather sudden arrival that ends up being the very catalyst that has already set the battle into motion. It also wastes no time bringing her face-to-face with someone she never expected to see again. When an old enemy suddenly resurfaces at the expense of honoring a debt long overdue, everything that was, may no longer be.

Summary: Takes place right after the ending of seaon 7. 
She dreams of him. It’s the only place he’s still real, in her dreams. She dreams of him and every time she does she holds her breath, begging not to wake up, begging to stay with him, sleep there forever.
But she always does. And she opens her eyes, and gets up. And all she ever really looks forward to doing is going back to sleep.

Heavy angst - but with a happy ending.

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.
