Warnings: Attempted Suicide
Stories
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: More than a year post NFA, Buffy is in self-imposed exile. Her only solace is a robot that looks like the vampire who sacrificed himself in a cave under Sunnydale. Spike is unable to stay away, only he's fighting his own inner battles he doesn't want to burden her with. Impersonating a robot for a few days should be easy, right? Completed 3/25/2018.

Summary:

The slayers activated by Willow fight a terrible war against vampires, demons and dark sorcerers. Just as the vampires are almost exterminated, something starts to happen. The slayers all lay down their arms and assume regular lives. Buffy quits the Scoobies and marries a man named Matt. 

More than 20 years later, the vampires return. Buffy has just left her husband. Xander has become an addict and hasn't been heard from in years. Willow went missing in South America long ago. Giles is back in Englad. Angel is human. Spike is slumbering in a tomb, waiting to be awoken by the final apocalypse.

Can our heroes come together to fight the coming darkness? Will Buffy and Spike become lovers again? Who caused the return of the vampires? What made the slayers lose their power and their will to fight? Who the hell is Matt?

Warning: This is an ensemble piece. There are lots of characters and lots of intertwining story lines, though all the character arcs are thematically similar. It takes quite a long time before Buffy and Spike actually meet, and there are a lot of other characters hogging the limelight. However, the final act does focus strongly on the Spuffy relationship. 


Summary: On Halloween night, Dawn Summers went missing. Two days later she turns up dead, and an already grieving Buffy has one less reason to try and claw her way back to life. But something already did come back – to demonic unlife, anyway. Now Spike has to rear an adolescent vampire, trying keep her from killing when she has no chip, no soul, and no real reason to be good, except for her respect for him. Season Six divergence, as Dawn is brought all the way in All The Way. Complete at 50 chapters.

Summary: Buffy woke up the same way she always did these days, a blank alertness overtaking sleep, without the harsh interjection of an alarm clock whisking her into action, without the dying whispers of a dream urging her to stay. Neither sudden nor gradual, instead it felt inevitable — like birth; yet always decidedly out of place. What was life after death in a nutshell, if not that?

Summary: There once was an Elementary School in Japan known as Heavenly Host Elementary in English. It was shut down after a series of deaths occurred on its grounds. This had happened many years ago, but rumors were still going around on the internet and occultists love to post stories and other urban legends about it. One such occultist left a charm on the website, a charm that will make it so a group of friends could be together forever. Willow finds the charm and shares it with her friends, and they all perform it. They end up in a different world where death is waiting at every corner, wanting all the living that appear in its halls to join their Corpse Party.

Summary: He didn’t know how right he was when he said she came back wrong…
Something is wrong with Buffy Summers.  Her friends might want to pretend otherwise.  At first, Spike wanted to pretend too.  However, soon there are signs even he can’t brush under the rug.  Only, he’s not quite sure how to fix it.  Can’t even determine where the crack is exactly.  The only thing Spike knows for certain is that he’s going to have to do something different—faster or more clever—if he’s going to save Buffy…from herself.

Summary: Spike finally realizes that Buffy means it this time; she's ending their not-a-relationship for good. It's over and he is devastated. He knows that magic comes with a cost, but desperate times call for desperate measures. There's got to be something to help ease the pain. He heads to The Magic Box hoping to make a deal with Anya, only to find her chatting all cozy-like with the demon who once called herself Halfrek and broke his pathetic human self's heart. That's okay. There are other places in Sunnydale where a clever vamp can find himself a spot of magic. In fact, Spike might just know himself a rather softhearted witch. Will Tara give him the magic he wants? Or might she just give him something even better?

Summary:
Everything changed after the Sunnydale Hellmouth fell.
Nineteen days later and the Scoobies are scattered across the globe.
Faith and Buffy start again.
The new guardians of the Cleveland Hellmouth.
Something is happening to Buffy.
Horrific nightmares haunt the Original Slayer.
Is it penance for her treatment of Spike?
Something else entirely?
On patrol in Cleveland, Buffy and Faith stumble across a gang of Mohra demons.
Things will never be the same again.
Angels and Demons, Vengeance, Oh My!
What will the gang discover about the true nature of the Slayer line?

NB; There may be a few instances of fairly graphic rape and torture in this story.
Please be aware of this before reading this fic.
This will be my first time posting a fic on EF. Please be gentle, as much feedback as possible would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to my amazing Beta Embell, without whom this story would have been a total mess.
Thanks also to Axell for her invaluable feedback :)
Summary: "Her wine glass crumbled in her death grip, shards embedding themselves in her skin. Her hand bled, but the sting went unnoticed in favor of the photo that had fallen to the floor. The impossible, oh-my-go-what-the-hell, panic-inducing, gut-wrenching photo that shouldn't- couldn't exist. Buffy read the letter that had come attached with it, 'What he hid, what they covered up.' No signature. Her greatest wish and her greatest fear were confirmed-
Spike was alive, and he hadn't come for her."
After discovering Spike is alive and kept it hidden from her on top of trying to discover who she is without being THE Slayer, Buffy decides she doesn't want to be "Buffy" anymore. And the only way to get rid of Buffy is to embrace the inner darkness she's been warding off since she was called. But, by embracing her more demonic side, she runs the risk of losing her humanity- and possibly her soul. All she can feel is pain, and if accepting the gift she'd denied in the past and losing her soul were the price to NOT feel, she was more than willing to pay the price. Regardless of the consequences.
