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: An ancient tragedy robbed William of the person he loved most- and left him cursed for eternity to hunt the one that betrayed him. Centuries later, his world is remade once more when he encounters the seeming reincarnation of his lost love. Helpless to do anything but pursue her, William quickly finds that the rules in this new dance have changed, for she is a Slayer and the sole purpose of her calling is to destroy his kind...

 
Elizabeth Summers was an unorthodox Slayer--and an American to boot-- but she has proven to the Council that she is worthy of her mantle. However, this is tested when she encounters the deadliest creature she has ever faced. Armed with the form of sin itself, he has professed his undying love and his intention to win her heart and soul. Can Elizabeth stay true to the path of the light when the temptation of the dark is so enticing?

 
There is another who is also eager to meet the young Slayer, someone from the shadows who plays a twisted game. Time has come full circle and his right to prove his dominion is finally at hand-and he will start with one golden haired beauty. Dodging her steps, hunting her from the dark, he will destroy everything she loves before making her his greatest masterpiece...

Summary: "Sheesh, these days a Slayer can’t even call a vampire’s soul her own.”
Set five years after the events of Chosen, and therefore four years after the events of NFA. All that happened per canon - the good, the bad, the ugly (Ginger sticks a fresh pin into her Marti Noxon voodoo doll) and, yes, even Riley Finn - has happened because I'm all about exploring where Buffy and Spike could possibly go from there (sans the singing). I borrow an idea, maybe two, from the comics but otherwise ignore them. So no space bugs, cringeworthy flying sex or Dander (that can't possibly be their portmanteau but I don't actually care enough to check).

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.

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: While in Prague, Drusilla prophesied the return of Angelus by the loss of his soul. Spike decides that for Angelus to be stopped once and for all, he's going to have to get his hands dirty, so he goes to Sunnyhell, California in hopes of hunting down the new Slayer and offering a temporary truce. Can Buffy be convinced to trust the Slayer of Slayers? When everything she thought she understood about her calling feels uncertain, where can she go from here?
