The Master
-Season 1 Big Bad
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:

Due to a mysterious Big Bad, Buffy is never Called as the Slayer. Instead, she moves to Sunnydale, unaware of the supernatural world hidden beneath. 
 
After an angry mob in Prague captures Drusilla, Spike offers a truce to the newest Big Bad and gets more than he bargained for in the process. 

(Set in an alternate Season 1 and 2)

Summary: She was the greatest of them. Perhaps even more so than the First Slayer, Sineya. The Watcher's Council's proudest champion, their crowning achievement. But it took from her everything: her innocence, her family, her identity. Her Calling became her slavery and her destiny, her shackles. And so for five long years, battle after battle, victory after victory, her legend and her hate grew until, finally, it was impossible for her to restrain.
And that was when he came to her. And so the Council's greatest warrior became their most terrifying foe, hunting her own kind.
Elizabeth 'Buffy' Summers, the Slayer of Slayers.

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: Set in Victorian London. Elizabeth Summers has been the slayer for five years. Her watcher, Sir Wyndam, has been making her life as miserable as possible. Then she meets William Pratt and things change.

Summary:

When Buffy was called as Slayer, she grew very confident in her abilities very quickly. So when Lothos came to town and she thought she could dust him as easily as any fledge, Merrick decided she needed a wake up call. Gathering all his materials, he had her study Master vampires, as many as she could. He made her write papers on them, and come up with battle strategies for if she ever came across them. And he made her study the rivalry. The biggest rivalry in vampire history. And Buffy chose sides: Team Spike.

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: Buffy goes to bed on campus after the fight with Spike for the Gem of Amara and wakes up in her bed at home. Odd but stranger things have happened in Sunnydale. Buffy not only wakes up back in her own home, but she also wakes up as a fifteen-year-old freshly anointed Slayer. She is starting Sunnydale High again but the oddest thing is that there are two Buffys. A fifteen-year-old Slayer and an eighteen-year-old graduated Slayer. Buffy finds out that, instead of choosing a new Slayer, Kendra, the timelines have been split and Buffy fights alongside herself against the evils that ruled Sunnydale High. Another oddity appears to her, why is Spike there? Even more importantly, why is Buffy drawn to Spike and why does it seem like he and Drusilla are the only ones who can help Buffy defeat a Big Bad she knows nothing about, and to help her go back to her own time. 
"I want to make a deal, Spike." "What? You, a Slayer, make a deal with the Big Bad? You must be Scotch mist if you thinkin' that's gon' go." "Shut up and listen. If you help me and let me stay here, I promise not to kill you or Drusilla and you get to kill me when you acquire the Gem of Amara." "You must be off your bird, Slayer." "Look, Spike, do we have a deal or not? My life is at stake here." "And if I don' agree and tell you to let the door hit you on your way out, mine's staked?" "Something like that. I promise: less with the stake and more with the Spike." 
Summary: Buffy, hardened from years of war caused by the activation of the Potentials decades ago, is offered a chance to go back in time by the PTB in a bid to prevent the activation from ever happening.
The catch? Only her soul is able to travel back.

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: Summary: Buffy is your typical geek and Spike is the most popular guy in school. Rupert Giles works for the watchers council and when the slayer is killed he is told the next one is right there in SunnyDale...little do they realise what is right around the corner will change their lives and the lives of their friends and families forever.

Thank you OffYourBird for my beautiful banner! 
 
I have absolute respect for the deaf community and while I have only learnt a bit of Irish Sign Language I have never learnt American SL but I tried to write everything as accurately as possible, conversations in italics are signed and spoken though they are often only signed for reasons explained in the story. The gadgets did exist in the nineties I saw them in the film 'Hear no Evil', Enjoy!
