Summary: (and all i gave you was goodbye)
Following the events of Dead Things, Spike leaves Sunnydale— this time, for good. When the First Evil comes knocking, he decides it’s time to return, and not a moment too soon. The Scoobies have fallen apart, Buffy most of all, and she never thought she’d be so grateful to see the (not-so) soulless vampire in her entire life. Things aren’t the same, anymore— can they fit in each other’s lives again, even if they want to?

Summary: (Book 1 of The Serpent Curse)
Buffy thought she had problems, being brought back from the dead, digging her way out of her coffin, the fact she's secretly attracted to Spike, and the mountain of bills she can’t afford to pay. The problem is....they held nothing to the arrival of Him. What's a slayer to do when everything she's ever believed turns out to be a lie? How's she supposed to react when this new threats appearance changes her life forever? And to make matters worse...he's human.
 
Banner created by the wonderful Axell!
 
Summary: Buffy Summers used to be a budding professional snowboarder. Some tragedies and some years later, she's living as far from the mountains and snow as she can get, and her life is at its most perfect. Then her sister, Dawn, gets a hare-brained idea to bring her back to the mountains. 
 
Spike Pratt used to be semi-pro on the snowboard. Some misfortunes and some years later, he's living as close to the mountains as he can get, trying to sustain himself as a snowboard instructor at a fancy Colorado ski resort, where the cost of living is just a little higher every year. 
 
What will Buffy find in the sprawling vistas and harsh climate of the high country? And when her path crosses Spike's, could they both be in for the ride of their lives?

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: (Book 2 of The Serpent Curse)
The spell was over. The problem? Her feelings for Spike were still there. The solution? Denial. At least.... that’s what she thought. Right up until her denial brought with it a new threat.... a human one. One that had no problem trying to end the world, and was fine killing innocent people, secretive commandos, and casting funky spells he thought were hilarious.

Buffy is in pain.  Spike is in denial.
Dionysus is watching.  So is Apollo.
Everything is about to come to a head.

Body? Whole and accounted for. Regrettably.

Emotional self? M.I.A.
 
Buffy is alive, sure. But her mind is pretty much trapped in limbo. The only thing she feels is a dread so stifling she is suffocating from it.
 
Still, who better to help her navigate this than someone who considers breathing optional, at best?
