Summary: Buffy had kissed him. All ‘Gone With The Wind’, with the rising music, and the rising … everything. And then she’d pulled away, the singing demon’s spell apparently broken. What had that meant? Spike had to find out, but he had to be smart about this. Not just run in in a billow of smoke and demand answers. That wouldn’t do at all. He needed a plan. A good plan. A plan that would get her away from her meddling friends, to start with.
 
With a little help from an unexpected source, a few pre-Christmas miracles, a motorbike, and some pie, Spike might actually be able to keep from buggering this plan up. Could both Buffy and Spike find themselves closer to heaven? With pie? Ala mode?
 
Inspired by the wonderful banner done by pfeifferpack during the Road Trip themed, Seasonal Spuffy Round 25. Begins the day after 'Once More With Feeling'.

Summary: After nearly five months spent in a Hell that was strangely like Heaven, Buffy and Spike have come back to the real world.  And guess what?  There’s a reason why Hell was so much fun.  For one thing, there weren’t old friends and ex-Watchers there, and the ur-Slayer didn’t have to figure out what to tell her baby Slayers about the whole, ‘in a lifelong, committed relationship with a vampire’ sitch.  Also, you know, now there was giant Dawn to deal with, and figuring out where to set up housekeeping if everything went to… well, hell. 
Also, you know, there was that whole business with the Scourge.  Couldn’t drop the ball on that. 

Note:  This is a sequel to “LA Is the Hell You Make It”, and is Part 3 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: After leaving Sunnydale with his dark princess, promising to never return, Spike is forced to break his word only a few months later. He left something on the Hellmouth that he desperately needs back. It's a matter of life and death ... or unlife and dust. What he thought would be a quick retrieval mission gets more complicated as he pulls into a town of adult teenagers, all 'drunk' on cursed Band Candy. It only gets worse when he realizes the item in question is under The Slayer's almost constant protection. It looks like another truce with the Slayer may be his only option.

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: Heartbroken and determined, Spike sets out to form a truce with his mortal enemy to take down Angelus once and for all. The last thing he expected was a couple of restless spirits interrupting his sales pitch, or to find himself in a magic-induced liplock. And one taste of Buffy Summers, he finds, is nowhere close to enough.

This is a shameless crackfic. There will be bad language, sexual situations, iffy character development, and decapitations. Also many references to songs by the B-52’s. Here’s a Spotify playlist: http://open.spotify.com/user/12180930371/playlist/0zCn0skDlEQq0qu2x8UgwS

Summary:

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: Buffy had planned to do it--knew she had no choice, really, if she couldn't stop Angelus before he opened Acathla.  She hadn't counted on Willow re-souling him, though. When it came time to close the portal to Hell, Angel opened his eyes and...she couldn't do it.  This is what happens when the Slayer fails and Hell takes over the Earth.
This story is an alternate Season 3.
