Summary: Even with her eyes closed, Buffy would recognise this place in a second, and for a moment she wondered if she truly had ended up in a hell dimension this time. One that had doomed her to an eternity of Doublemeat Palace workdays. Buffy felt her lips moving, heard her own voice speaking, and as she opened her eyes she decided that a hell dimension definitely wasn’t ruled out just yet.
“Welcome to the Doublemeat Palace, how may I help – “ She stared into Riley’s scarred face as she completed her sentence. “– you.”
Her mom, Sunnydale, her home, Spike – There are many things Buffy misses in her life, but if she had gotten the choice to revisit a day that had already passed, this would so not be it!

Summary: How would things have changed if, instead of going on Giles' little side mission, Spike had insisted on staying until he got the all-clear from Buffy and, by coincidence, was there when her friends turned against her? This is my take on Empty Places (Season 7, Episode 19) and how different things could have turned out if Buffy had had someone in her corner.

Gutted and seeing no point in staying in a world without his Slayer, Spike doesn’t hesitate when pursuing a deadly demon through a portal.  He finds himself stuck in an alternate reality where he truly died closing the Hellmouth.  He also finds another Buffy, one who is devastated that her Spike didn’t believe she loved him.  They console each other over their losses… but are they only consolation prizes?  Or can two heartbroken people get a second chance for love?
The gorgeous, yearning banner springs from the nuanced talent of artist nmcil.  This story is for a challenge by the-mini-muse.  Many thanks to both for inspiring this story!

Summary: Set in season 6-7 and after (ignoring comics), this story begins soon after Older and Far Away. Warren, and this troupe of misfit baddies, The Trio, has Buffy over a barrel. They’ve got video evidence of her trysts with Spike – and plenty of it. If she doesn’t do what they want, they’ll broadcast the explicit video all over the internet – everyone will know her dirty little secret. Buffy’s never felt so lost and alone and utterly ashamed. After being dragged out of heaven, her soul aches, and Spike’s the only one who can ease her pain, but her friends would never understand. While trying to help the Slayer out of this jam, Spike inadvertently reveals a secret of his own, one that he’s worked hard to keep hidden even from himself, one that will change the way Buffy sees him and change their dance forever. 
How will everyone's lives change as they face life on the Hellmouth when Buffy begins to see that Spike is not like Angel, and accepts him into her life and her heart as an equal rather than a dirty little secret?
The answer is: dramatically!  
Summary: S7 AU, picks up after 'Showtime' and goes from there. Buffy's attitude towards Spike really changed in-between those episodes. Wonder what happened...

After all, he lit up in the Sunnydale hellmouth, saving the world from a different source of evil. 

Written for the Elysian Fields Challenge Month and Dusty’s beautiful “Glow” banner. She wanted Spike gushing about how Buffy glows…well, there will be gushing in various forms. It just might take a little time to get there. I have lots of plans for glowing.

Summary: Part 4 of a the Souls In Bondage series:
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 is hungry, Buffy wants to fight, and the house is crowded with Potentials. Late S7.
