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: So.
Let’s have a look at the butcher’s bill.

Body? Whole and accounted for. Regrettably.
Mind? Blown. Lost. Take your pick.
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?

Summary: Part 2 of a the Souls In Bondage series:
Team Angel has gone through the looking glass.  But this time, they happened to do it a little differently.  See, the one thing the Senior Partners didn’t count on was Buffy. 
Normally, the Powers That Be can’t affect things in a hell dimension ruled by entities who suck at losing so bad they cheat their own lawyers.  But when you not only have a bunch of Champions… but also a bonafide PTB conduit stuck in your hellscape like a fly in the ointment, it causes serious problems for hellgod types… and really makes things interesting for a bunch of lost souls and demons trying to make a difference in Hell-A.
Also, you know…  Who knew Hell could be such a nice vacation spot for a vampire and Slayer who just wanted a damn moment alone?

Note:  This is a sequel to “The Ethnocentrism of Vampthropology”, and is Part 2 of a series If you haven’t read Part 1 you might be able to keep up, but you’ll have missed some important stuff.  Read on at your own risk.

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: Vampires are supposed to dust, not leave an unnaturally still, empty shell behind after stepping in front of their mortal enemy to save their lives during an attack. A confusing funeral later and Buffy has to come to terms with having lost a lover she would never have called a lover or told her friends about, and the one person who made living bearable after being ripped out of heaven. Life crushes her even harder and she struggles to exist at all. Her only moments of escape are dreams that make it impossible to believe that Spike is truly gone.

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:

In a dystopian future, the Senior Partners sent a horde of demons to overrun Angel and his crew, and the Senior Partners won. Buffy and her friends are on the hunt for something to save the world, and on one mission, Buffy finds something belonging to someone she never thought she’d see again. After all, he lit up in the Sunnydale hellmouth, saving the world from a different source of evil. 

Written for the Elysian Fields Challenge Month and Dusty’s beautiful “Glow” banner. She wanted Spike gushing about how Buffy glows…well, there will be gushing in various forms. It just might take a little time to get there. I have lots of plans for glowing.

Summary: Part 4 of a the Souls In Bondage series:
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: This is the story of how I, Buffy Summers, convinced the infamous Slayer of Slayers to switch sides and fight for the light without even needing to regain his soul.

Summary: Part 1 of a the Souls In Bondage series:
Buffy has a run-in with the Scourge, and she learns a few things from them—about the nature of vampires, the Slayer line, herself, and about a certain bleach-blond vampire who vanished into flames at the end of the world a year ago, and took all the heat of her heart with him.  

She needs answers. But when she rings in from Rome to LA to reach the one vampire she has left, she finds out something that she never thought possible. What--and who--she finds in her old hometown sends her on a journey of self-discovery and reunification the likes of which she never dreamed... one that bids fair to set both broken souls and bound demons free.
