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: Part Four of “Something Wicked”:  OMWF with an established relationship, and a happy Slayer.  Also, no resurrection or Trio. There is something else looming… but not those dopes.  We’ve messed with the S6 theme too much for that, by now. (i.e. it can possibly be read as a standalone, but I wouldn’t recommend it.)
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: 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.

Instead of dying after jumping off of Glory's tower, like she thought she would, Buffy now has to deal with the consequences of her friends taking drastic measures to save her life.  Apparently, the Buffybot was good for something other than being Spike's sex toy, she also was good to use for parts, turning Buffy into the world's first bionic Slayer. However, some of the programming is messing with Buffy's brain. She can no longer deny her attraction to Spike or, for some reason, say Giles' name correctly. What's a Slayer to do when she has to go on living, as something other than human, when she didn't expect to make it out of the big fight at all?

Summary: Buffy's new theory about the trio leads her to forge a new alliance, and life changes course for all of the Scoobies mid-season-6. And soon…just when Buffy's relationship with Spike is starting to look a little more promising…someone comes back into town and throws everything even more off-kilter. Buffy is left battling a totally new kind of big bad while also fighting the temptation of a much more familiar one.
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: 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: 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
