Summary: Buffy didn’t care much for her family’s new life in London. Too many useless rules, too many charades and inflated truths. When she comes across a man writing poetry in the park, she thinks she has found perhaps one of the few real people in the city and she finds herself smitten. If only his heart didn’t belong to another. If only that fateful night had gone differently, maybe she could have saved him from all the pain. If only he would see her as anything other than just another one of them.

Summary: My way of meeting the four wonderful challenges put forth in March 2007, by Seven_Seasons . I'm rearranged them so as to make each one a separate chapter, rather than all being on one page without much distance between them. They are so different, I think that will be a better arrangement.  One is nothing but fluffy Spuffy, one is terribly grim, and two are suitably angsty for what was going on at that time.  Each one is based on an actual episode that has been twisted to meet the challenge requirements – any dialogue that sounds familiar was probably written by those much more talented writers at Mutant Enemy, rather than by me. J
 Here are the challenges as put up on the Seven Seasons community:
 1)     Giles doesn't leave, and he's there when he finds Spike crying against the tree.  How does Giles find out about Buffy and manage to be at the house when all the Scoobies return?  How does he react to seeing Spike in tears at Buffy’s return?
 
2)     What if Spike isn't the only one to hear Buffy say that her friends dragged her out of Heaven?  Who has overheard her and how do they react to the news--as well as the fact that Buffy confided in Spike and not her friends?
 
3)     Riley returns-absent any rebound wife.  How does Buffy react while remembering how desperately she'd run to catch him and stop him from leaving her?  Does she still want him back?
 
4)     Spike knew about the resurrection and tried to stop it, afraid that Buffy would 'come back wrong.'  What is he afraid of?

Summary: 2187 days. That’s how long they’d been stuck in this hell. Not that they hadn’t deserved it. They both had killed the one that they had loved more than life itself, one accidental and the other unavoidable, erasing all hope and meaning in their lives. And what was hell, but the total absence of hope?

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: Riley stays in Sunnydale, and pretty soon there’s a baby on the way.

There will actually be three stories; this one focuses on the main romantic relationships, while the second will be mostly Spike, and the third will unite the threads to wrap things up.

Summary:  
Historical, Buffy is a respected woman by day and a slayer by night but when she comes home to her husband's castle to find him and their five year old son murdered by a vampire, she begins to plot for revenge. An unexpected vampire comes to her for help, a vampire who had stayed elusive over the years as to not anger the Slayer but she soon realizes that she needs him more than he needs her. (Banner by MSKBSwedish)
Summary: Spike and Buffy are being inventive: Buffy’s the head cheerleader, and William her seductive English tutor; Queen Fi pleasured by her enslaved eunuch; Will and Buff in an illicit tryst in a posh boarding school; the follower of Lucifer properly tormented for turning to the side of the devil. A lot of things can happen in five hours.
Starts fluffy, eventually gets kinda heavy, pretty much running the gamut of a lot of sexuality.

Summary: Set after the events of the season 5 AtS series finale "Not Fade Away". Buffy finds herself drawn to Los Angeles to warn Angel of a vivid dream evoking what appears to be a dangerous unfulfilled prophecy of the entire city in ruins. But it's her rather sudden arrival that ends up being the very catalyst that has already set the battle into motion. It also wastes no time bringing her face-to-face with someone she never expected to see again. When an old enemy suddenly resurfaces at the expense of honoring a debt long overdue, everything that was, may no longer be.
