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: Buffy Summers spent most of her life watching Slayers like India Cohen dominate the modern zeitgeist. She never imagined that one day she’d be among the Chosen Ones, a vampire slayer. After gaining the power of the Slayer, Buffy finds herself swept into the world of fame and instant popularity, her every move captured and mass produced for public consumption under The Slayer brand. Stylized as a real-life hero, Buffy is tasked to fulfill her destiny as The Slayer. Guided by her watcher Rupert Giles and controlled by Wolfram and Hart, she soon finds that being a Slayer isn’t all that it seems. With the aid of Spike and her friends, Buffy learns that beneath the facade lies a deadly secret Wolfram & Hart will do anything to keep.

Summary: As a response to a challenge by pfeifferpack in which Buffy is called out for treating Spike like trash when he's trying to show her he loves her in the best way he knows how. 
Takes place at the beginning of Dead Things as AU flashbacks. 
She is visited by God(s) who try, with various scenarios, to open her eyes and see what is right in front of her.  They try to get Buffy to see that her and Spike are better together.
There will be some VERY dark moments along the way, but we will end up HEA Spuffy because I can't abide anything else.  It will take some time to get there, but it will be worth it.  
 
Summary:  
Inspired by a challenge from knightowl:
 
When Buffy dies at the hands of the Master her Slayer side goes into shock and hides. This makes everyone, even the Council think that she has lost her powers. Her friends and Giles draw away from her so that she can have a 'normal' life and to protect her from everything. Letting Buffy see that all they really liked about her was her Slayer side. Kendra is sent to Sunnydale to replace Buffy and Angel starts to stalk her instead of Buffy, allowing her to see how creepy that is. Buffy becomes depressed and realises that she liked being the Slayer but that everything she thought she knew about her life and her friends was wrong.
 
Enter Spike, who hates Dru a little because the whole Prague thing only happened because Dru finally decided to break up with him just to then let herself be hurt knowing Spike would have to stay and look after her.
 
Spike and Buffy meet, both a little depressed and angry at how their lives are at the moment.
 

 
Or a lot depressed, if you ask me.
 
I like to think of this story as fun, sweet, and effed up all rolled into one angsty teen/vampire romance. So, basically, it's a retelling of S2 with Spike as the male lead. Fun times. biggrin
 
Extra warnings include talks about self-harm (no graphic depictions) and harm to a child (because of course Dawn is always a magnet for trouble). Oh, and the Drug Use warning is only for marijuana.

Summary:

Ford makes Spike an offer he can’t refuse. But things don’t go exactly to plan, thanks to an act of blind luck… or utter clumsiness. The Lonely Ones begins during Lie to Me in the Season 2 timeline, and then diverges from there.
