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: Between juggling a New World Order, a bothersome Council, wayward magic, and – as always – some much with the confusing time travel, there is never a dull moment in Sunnydale for Liz and Elly. This is Season 6 as it exists in the Jumpverse (beginning with A Different Kind of Hell and followed up by A Different Kind of Wedding).
Disclaimer: All of Buffy belongs to Joss Whedon and ME. Everything else is mine, for your pleasure.
Summary: Part three of the I Would Still Have Loved You series. Our time-traveling heroes are now in Season Six, Buffy never died so wasn't resurrected, and they don't know what to expect from here. Aside from the Nerd Trio being pains in Buffy's ass.....

Summary: Buffy Summers has been missing for three years when she is found in the basement of a suburban Sunnydale home. She struggles with trauma from her kidnapping and the confusing relationship she quickly develops with the lead detective on her case, William ‘Spike’ Pratt.
I'm not good at writing summaries. I never know how much to give away... If you read the first chapter you'll get a good idea of what it's about and how the story will develop. Give it a try. It might not be horrible.
Summary: What if the secret weapon that Buffy discovered in Touched wasn’t the scythe? What if it was something else?
Spike and Buffy accidentally travel back in time from Season 7 to Season 5. When they find themselves stuck in the past they devise a plan to prevent Buffy’s death and stop the First from ever appearing. But, their presence in the past has unexpected consequences. Like, what does a crazy vampire like Drusilla do when she sees Dawn as a shiny ball of light?

Summary: A Slayer who doesn’t feel love anymore meets a daywalker who believes he is unlovable.  The story begins in the gloomiest part of season six and gets lighter from there.
From a challenge by Mikkalenko:  Spike is a 'daywalker,' a variety of vampire so rare that the Council doesn't bother to mention them to their Slayers.  Daywalkers get all the perks of vampirism, but none of the drawbacks.  [Full challenge here.]  Very loosely based on the attributes of the comics character Blade.

Summary: Spike has died to save the world and deserves a reward. But the cosmos needs champions, so he is offered a chance to save a Buffy, in an alternate reality, a Buffy that is alone and being stalked by evil. Spike accepts the offer and is sent back as a sentinel, committed to the one reason for his existence, in every life he will save her.
For those that are unfamiliar with the TV series The Sentinel:
Sentinels have an instinctual drive to protect their home territory. They have five super senses and extra musculature for added strength. The problem is Sentinels need to bond with a Guide. Guides are people with high empathic abilities that can keep Sentinels from turning to the dark side. In other words going crazy and killing every human in sight. They are a lot like a vampire, just without the drinking of blood and burning in the sun, and they are alive, not undead.

Summary: The Olesriev demon is a rare creature known only to a small fraction of people. Members of The Watcher’s Council, their slayers, and a few incredibly lucky vampires are familiar with the existence of this supernatural anomaly. Still, the extent of the Olesriev’s powers remains elusive to the commoner. Buffy Summers just so happens to be one of these creatures, and her youthful human appearance makes her true nature impossible to detect. Unless, of course, it’s feeding time. Then she looks a little scary. Though they aren’t human, Olesrievs have souls, hearts that beat and are full of life. Being a good-natured demon is hard enough, even harder when trying to do the right thing with no one to guide you in the noisy, chaotic world of humans and demons co-existing on top of the Hellmouth. Buffy has lived for one hundred and thirty-three years, suffering unspeakable pain, loss, and loneliness. Though her ability to love surpasses any human’s definition of the word, she doesn’t feel as though she deserves it. When a powerful and handsome vampire named Spike crosses her path, her life of solitude takes a drastic turn. She is suddenly thrust into a new world rife with unique personalities and a blossoming feeling inside her, forcing her to acknowledge that she might be worth something after all.

Summary: This WIP sprung from the idea of a love potion that backfired – but not on the general population like in Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered (S2E16) but backfired on the caster of the potion. Dosing the caster with some self-love – something most of our Scoobies are lacking from time to time. Self-love also got me thinking about the toxic end of that spectrum, Narcissism. And, well here we are, an AU where the Scoobies learn to love themselves (mind out of the gutter, I didn’t mean it that way (probably)) with a little help from the goddess who cursed Narcissus: Nemesis.

Summary: Since the age of five, Buffy has always thought that life couldn’t get any worse. Then it always does. She does what she has to in order to survive. Her only means of sanity and escape are her slayer fantasies in which she is a superhero who always wins the battle...eventually. She goes through life learning that for her there is no happily ever after. Will life prove her right or wrong in the end? (Follows Buffy throughout all of her life and her relationships. Spuffy tones throughout, but it takes time to get there, so it is more so in later chapters.)

Summary: As per usual, Buffy is thrown back in time... but this time from a place we never imagined.
Angel and The Master team up and bring down the walls of reality..
This is a cross over between BtVS and Torchwood if you hadn't guessed already :)
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!  

Buffy finds out that Spike was dusted in the big battle with Wolfram and Hart. Angry, hurt, and determined, she finally agrees to take a daring risk with Dawn to go back in time and make sure Spike knows he’s loved even if it doesn’t change his fate. This is a story based on Javajunkie’s challenge, Whisper in a Dead Man’s Ear.

Summary: 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: When ten seemingly random individuals end up stranded on a private island off the California coast, they discover that their mysterious host does not have their best interests at heart. Set shortly before the beginning of “Anne” then going completely AU, this is a Buffy-verse twist on Agatha Christie’s classic And Then There Were None

When Willow brought Buffy back from the dead, she wasn't the only thing that was resurrected. 
She brought Spike back too.
Let me be very clear, this is not a baby fic, not really;
There will be a baby, but it will not be Buffy's.
This fic deals with abortions and all the awful stuff that goes along with it.
If that's not your bag, I wouldn't recommend clicking any further.
This work was inspired by the amazing Versheenah, whose excellent fic Choices gave me tons to think about and ended up turning in to this story. 
Thank you Versheenah.

Part Two of the Something Wicked series  (S5, beginning with "Buffy vs Dracula")

Spuffy have been together for a while now.  Things have been great.  The Scoobies have more or less accepted the reality of their couplehood, Spike finally has his own place, so there’s plenty of thoroughly excellent shag-time, and college is kind of fun when you have a worldly, undead tutor to poke fun at your instructors and help you remember your lessons with fascinating anecdotes or, when that fails, incredibly memorable sexy-times.  Life is actually, like, bordering on good

But then Mr. Eurovamp 2000 blows into town and causes a bunch of jealousy.  And then Buffy starts having a bunch of crappy Slayer dreams about glowy purply stuff.  And Dawn is going off the hook even more than usual, and Mom is acting weird…  And, as if there’s not enough to deal with, Buffy’s pretty sure that idiot Riley Finn is still lurking around town trying to come up with a reason to shoot her boyfriend…

Buffy should have known things couldn’t stay yummy for long.  She probably would have started to worry if it had.

Summary: Spike gets Buffy a companion for the sunny moments that he can't be there. Set after Life Serial. Pure fluff. Just some drabble that I had fun with. There's a plot if you squint very very hard.

Summary: Challenge Response. Starts off with the events from Tabula Rasa but with a slight twist. Giles is set to leave for England in his misguided effort to force Buffy to stand on her own. Buffy, in her anger and desperation, demands for a replacement, someone who can take his place because a slayer on the Hellmouth needs a watcher. Where is Giles supposed to find a watcher with so few options and with time running out? Enter Spike. Will Buffy see the vampire in a new light now that he’s officially pulling for the good guys? An alternate season 6.
