Summary: The girl in question is Buffy, of course. But what would have happened if Spike had blown off Angel's search for the Goran head and gone after Buffy instead? What if their reunion uncovered a corrupted Angel's evil agenda?
Upon breaking out of a dungeon, incompetent thief Andrew Wells helps Spike and Buffy, recently reunited and cursed by Angel. Angel's curse prevents the pair from ever being in each other's presence except at twilight, so they enlist Andrew in a dangerous plot to return to LA, overthrow Angel and break his evil enchantment. 
Inspired by the 1985 feature film Ladyhawke and the novelization by Joan D Vinge. 
Starts at the bar fight scene between Angel and Spike and veers sharply into my own little AU where Angel really does want to join the Order of the Black Thorn and he is unapologetically and lavishly evil.

Summary: There's something going on in Sunnydale that, for once, has less to do with the Hellmouth and more to do with the mysterious commandos that are running around during all hours of the night. Of course, Sunnydale wouldn't be Sunnydale unless there were some seriously creepy demons thrown into the mix to make everything that much more difficult. In the meantime, Buffy and Spike come to a tentative agreement that neither of them saw coming in order to find out more about what exactly is happening below Sunnydale and how to fix it before the whole town implodes.
 
Or before Buffy stakes Spike for being the most annoying vampire of all time, whichever came first.
 
Oh, and there's the fact that she can't stop thinking about Spike and his stupid lips. But that's neither here nor there.

Summary: In a world where Buffy never ran away after season 2, her trauma from Acathla and Angelus simmers away through the summer and season 3. When Buffy ends up playing a more active role in the accidental death of the assistant mayor, it finally comes to a boil. Buffy and Faith panic and skip town together.
 
Eight months later, Spike is in possession of the Gem of Amara, ready to battle Buffy, only to be unable to locate her. He asks around and discovers that no one has seen her or the other slayer in ages. Motivated by vengeance (and definitely not the fact that Joyce practically begged him to help bring her daughter home) he tracks them to New York City, only to find a pair of rogue slayers very different from who they used to be. Meanwhile, a seemingly slayerless Sunnydale struggles with change, grief and the Initiative.

Summary: Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy.
But here’s my number, so call me, maybe?
 
Buffy’s got a lot on her mind, what with Parent-Teacher Night, French verbs, and a crush on a vampire who won’t even commit to a night of dancing--but all that goes away when she meets someone new at the Bronze. One dance and she’s giving him her number, but will he simple things up for her, or just make everything worse?
 
Spike came to the club to scope out the slayer, but ended up leaving with her phone number in his pocket. The perfect tool to entrap her for the kill--if he weren’t haunted by her smile and the realization that he’s doomed. Now there’s just one question in his mind--will he pick up the phone and dial?
 
(Spoiler: He will. Or there wouldn’t be much of a story.)
 
Opening premise based on the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, though it will not actually appear in the fic because it hadn’t even been written yet in 1997. Starting off fluffy, will get smutty eventually.

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, Merrick Jamison-Smythe 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. [Not an all human AU]

Summary: After being openly shunned by the object of his affections William Pratt is faced with an ailing mother whose final wish is for him to obtain a wife. Unpopular with the London ladies William has no other viable option but to set his sights away from the English Roses and find his future spouse through the matchmaking mail order company 'Colonial Brides'.
Elizabeth Summers has been left destitute and alone, save her young sister Dawn after the outbreak of smallpox in Paris. Though of American descent, the clergy found it prudent to place the young Summers ladies in the care of a finishing school, training orphaned girls of affluence in the art of being the perfect wife and matchmaking through 'mail-order'. Elizabeth's headstrong ways have deterred suitors so far, but if she is to save herself and Dawn from a life of poverty she must learn to obtain and maintain a suitable match. Her arranged marriage to the foppish Mr. Pratt may be just the start she needs to escape destitution, after all a marriage of convenience is far better than one of love.
And who could love someone as awkward and spineless as Mr. Pratt?

A newly corporeal Spike musters up the courage to call Buffy. They slowly rebuild their relationship over the phone lines, him in California fighting alongside Angel and her in London establishing the new Slayer central.

Summary: When Hell-God Glorificus arrives in Sunnydale, she becomes suspicious that the Slayer knows where to find The Key. But the only keys Buffy owns are the ones to her house, her dorm and Giles' place... and maybe…  just possibly…  one to Spike's undead heart. 
 
Buffy’s track record with guys hasn’t been the best, but Spike’s steadfast support and teasing affection is slowly breaking down the walls she’s built around her own heart, one tiny chip at a time. (see what I did there?)
 
When it's revealed that the Order of Dagon monks placed the Key essence within a very human Bob Barker -- yes that Bob Barker -- Buffy and Spike must leave Sunnydale on a sacred quest to protect everyone’s favorite game-show host from the Knights of Byzantium, a god named Glory, and an intern named Ben… who apparently rents a room from the god of bad perms?
 
So, buckle up kids, I’m putting the hammer down on Season Five!
Never fear, there will still be chainmail, scabby minions, and many heroics from our heroic, uh… heroes.  But now -- new and improved, better than ever -- and if you act now with this exclusive offer for Elysian Fields members only -- benefits include the added excitement of Thanksgiving pie, demon karaoke bars, showcases filled with fabulous prizes, and maybe even a new car! 
 
But the most important thing and the true focus of this tale is our beloved Spuffy and how they work together to defeat Glorificus, save the world (again), and find true love.
