Summary:

Part 1 of the Something Wicked series.  (S4, between "Something Blue" and "Hush")

The Hellions have visited Sunnydale before.  Here and there, in twos and threes, looking for a good time.  Any hellmouth is a good time, after all.  Usually they don’t stay long, since the new Slayer started to get a reputation for making good times go bad.  No one wants to play when there’s a sheriff in town.  But then word gets around that a vamp with a reputation of his own has joined the Slayer’s camp.  That pisses off more than a few boys in the demon world; especially demons with a score to settle and a serious dislike of vamps in general, that one in particular.

What’s interesting is… Once the score gets settled, the sheriff gets distracted dealing with the fallout.  And all of a sudden, the town’s wide open. 

Or is it?

Summary: Drusilla was never able to recover from her attack in Prague. Spike is devastated by his loss. However, in dreams she keeps repeating the same phrase; "You will hear her before you see her, you will see her before you understand and when you can't escape you will realize you are hers."
He hears a desperate cry that cuts through the night through the voice of an infant calling for help, she cries and that worries him. Without stopping to think about it, he lets his instincts take over, so he begins to look for its source until he feels the voice calling only to him; "HELP ME" "I NEED YOU" "COME TO ME".

Summary: It was a sticky kind of heat. The kind whose fingers crawled on your skin, hair, and nostrils leaving you itchy and irritated all over. A sickening kind of thing which drove all with good sense back inside their well-insulated homes, with its goosebump giving AC.
 
But that was something Sunnydalians had never had, good sense. For good sense would mean never living on a hellmouth, never roaming in darkened alleys, and absolutely, positively, never, EVER attending a mysteriously appearing carnival. And what a pity that would be for the creatures who lurked at night.
 
See my pretties, Sunnydale was the exact sort of place one found themselves, when they were in dire need of fumbling minions or innocent victims. Which was why, on one late summer afternoon, the great Carnival of Dromen had opened their faded purple gates to the locals.
 
Little did the owner know he would come to regret his decision greatly, for among the senseless townspeople was the Slayer and her vampire.

Summary:

The universe had a few things go wrong in it.
So an order was put in for a second go, by the Powers.
When a Slayer took down her first Master, in LA,
when Whistler was sent in to point a vampire with a soul at a girl who had no clue what he was up to,
things slid a little sideways, onto a slightly different track.

What is 'normal', really?
Who is prophesied?
And what happens if you give the ingredients a stir before you send your dish back to the kitchen and ask for a new version of the same meal?

Summary: In a not comics-compliant post-series universe where spuffy have been reunited and everyone else is drifting apart, chaos drops by for a visit. Or a nefarious scheme. I guess we'll find out XD

Summary: Buffy goes to bed on campus after the fight with Spike for the Gem of Amara and wakes up in her bed at home. Odd but stranger things have happened in Sunnydale. Buffy not only wakes up back in her own home, but she also wakes up as a fifteen-year-old freshly anointed Slayer. She is starting Sunnydale High again but the oddest thing is that there are two Buffys. A fifteen-year-old Slayer and an eighteen-year-old graduated Slayer. Buffy finds out that, instead of choosing a new Slayer, Kendra, the timelines have been split and Buffy fights alongside herself against the evils that ruled Sunnydale High. Another oddity appears to her, why is Spike there? Even more importantly, why is Buffy drawn to Spike and why does it seem like he and Drusilla are the only ones who can help Buffy defeat a Big Bad she knows nothing about, and to help her go back to her own time. 
"I want to make a deal, Spike." "What? You, a Slayer, make a deal with the Big Bad? You must be Scotch mist if you thinkin' that's gon' go." "Shut up and listen. If you help me and let me stay here, I promise not to kill you or Drusilla and you get to kill me when you acquire the Gem of Amara." "You must be off your bird, Slayer." "Look, Spike, do we have a deal or not? My life is at stake here." "And if I don' agree and tell you to let the door hit you on your way out, mine's staked?" "Something like that. I promise: less with the stake and more with the Spike." 
Summary: Season 5. Begins with ‘Spiral’ in the abandoned gas station, and goes *far* off-canon almost immediately.
When Dawn makes the ultimate sacrifice to save her sister, friends, and the world, Buffy’s mind snaps. When Buffy's friends give up hope of her ever recovering, and become afraid that she’ll turn violent and uncontrollable, they call in the Council to help. Fearing what the Council will do, Spike, forgotten and ignored by her friends, steps in. Will he be able to reach the Slayer when no one else could? Will he be able to keep her out of the hands of the Council and away from her ‘helpful’ friends? How much heartbreak, guilt, and failure can one girl stand before her indestructible spirit finally resigns the fight and gives up hope?
 
WARNINGS: Threesome B/G/G action involving Spike, Buffy, and BuffyBot. Implied Rape. Main Character Death. Physical Torture. Plenty of angst.
