Glory
-Season 5 Big Bad
-Also known as Glorificus
Stories
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: When Buffy brings her mom and sister to Spike to protect from the hellgod, Glory, he sees a chink in her armor—she needs him, she trusts him... maybe, just maybe, she doesn’t hate him as much as she claims. Will that boatload of manly responsibility the Slayer’s dropped into his lap save Spike from a life of lonely desperation?

The spell was over. The problem? Her feelings for Spike were still there. The solution? Denial. At least.... that’s what she thought. Right up until her denial brought with it a new threat.... a human one. One that had no problem trying to end the world, and was fine killing innocent people, secretive commandos, and casting funky spells he thought were hilarious.

Summary: All's swell here in Sunnydale, CA.   Ragtime plays.  Hotsy-totsy flapper Buffy Summers slays.  The bootleg giggle waters flow, and what happens in the military "internment camp" known as Hellville only the HSTs really know.  But there’s some kind of phonus balonus on the Hellmouth that’s making the Slayer feel screwy.  Not that Buffy wants to be a wet blanket or cast a kitten, but she’s no chump and she’s about to get sore.  She can’t toot the wrong ringer, so she’ll have to put the screws on that grifter, Spike - Hostile #17 himself.  He’ll either give her the rap, or earn another poke right in the kisser.  Savvy?  That’s the crop!   Written for the Artistic April Challenge, Banner #10 by OffYourBird.

Summary: Jenny Calendar est d'origine bohémienne, elle vient du peuple des Kalderash. Jenny a vécu une enfance heureuse et paisible, malgré la soif de vengeance et les traditions et origines gitanes qu'on a essayé de lui inculquer. Depuis sa naissance, Jenny était destinée des plus hautes gloires ; ses parents l'appelaient l'enfant du miracle. Jenny grandit, avec une grande gentillesse, loyale, et d'une certaine maniérée d'une grande timidité, mais en même temps un certain gout pour la rébellion et l'indépendance ; c'est ce qui se passa à son adolescence.
 
A l'âge Adulte, Jenny voulu vivre sa propre vie et changer les choses dans son monde. Elle devient ainsi professeur d'informatique, dans ces circonstances, elle devient amie avec l'une de ses plus brillante élève, Willow Rosenberg. Parallèlement, Jenny Calendar est farouchement en désaccord sur son lieu de travail avec Rupert Giles, collègue et ennemi déclaré, ils deviennent de façon inattendue partenaires de travail et plus tard, amis. Mais Jenny va tomber accidentellement amoureuse de lui….
 
Pendant ce temps, elle doit faire face à sa destinée et ses choix de vie. Ainsi que réaliser ce pourquoi elle s'était installée à Sunnydale en premier lieu. Va-t-elle réparer les erreurs de son passé ? Va-t-elle vivre la vie qu'elle mérite de vivre ? Et enfin va-t-elle s'épanouir dans sa vie sentimentale et amoureuse ?
 
Alors que pendant ce temps, alors en parallèle en cheminement combinant cette relation, Spike un vampire sans âme qui était le symbole même d'un monde surnaturel fantastique, d'un monde des ténèbres dans et de la nuit, était un homme, un vampire qui n'était pas comme les autres, une personne sachant contrôler son démon est symbolisé en représentation tout le contraire de la nature ; il enseigna que le monde n'était pas une structure de noir ou blanc mais rempli de nuance de gris, et savait que les démons comme les vampires pouvaient aimer ; William Pratt a un passé rempli d'un monde de secret, en ayant aimé, reçu de l'affection d'une autre que Drusilla... Spike révèle par inadvertance un secret qui lui est propre, un secret qu’il a travaillé dur pour garder caché même de lui-même, un qui changera la façon dont Buffy le voit et changera leur danse pour toujours.
Comment la vie de chacun va-t-elle changer alors qu’ils font face à la vie sur la bouche de l’Enfer quand Buffy commence à voir que Spike n’est pas comme Angel, et l’accepte dans sa vie et son cœur comme un égal plutôt qu’un sale petit secret ?
 
Il l'a connue deux fois, dans des périodes de la vie de l'enfance de Buffy, avant, avant de connaitre, de faire la connaissance de Buffy Summers, tous deux ont tout à fait le choc quand il se présente à Sunnydale à la recherche d’un remède pour Drusilla, après une attaque de foule en colère à Prague qui se traduit par la capture de Drusilla, Spike se rend en Californie à la recherche d’une puissante sorcière gitane qui peut la lui rendre et obtient plus que ce qu’il a négocié dans le processus.
Summary: Being Called does not mean being Owned.
The Calling has Buffy in Las Vegas; jaded, bored, struggling with 'normal life'.  For one thing, she hasn't been 'normal' since Merrick, and Lothos, and the mental ward. Mom is also struggling; with the move, her new job. Buffy’s new Watcher is struggling with... well, everything (he's pretty useless, that Wesley).
Buffy feels she's owed a good time...and she finds it, on her birthday; in a strange new, blue-eyed vamp she meets at some dive bar.  He's different, a little weird, he's been looking to meet her for a good, long while... and god, is he ever good in bed.
(Written for the EF "Called" Challenge.)  
NOTE:  While part of a series, this story is NOT a sequel to Reordering the Universe.  The tales in this series are only thematically linked, and are but supposals with one thing in common:  What if Buffy was never the Sunnydale Slayer? 
What if, indeed. 
Summary:

What if Buffy had given Spike a sliver of slack? How might that have changed the Slayer and her vampire? A re-imagining of season 5
