Summary: S6. Buffy wakes up after her first night of debauchery with Spike and realizes she has a problem. And it isn’t the naked vampire beside her or the fruitless search for her clothes. An entire television crew has invaded the house she and Spike semi-destroyed and she’s just been shanghaied into helping fix it up. Morning afters are so not her forte. Set just after Smashed.

Summary: Very short ficlet set in the comics when we'd just seen it go wrong and I wanted to fix it. Apparently they (Dark Horse) were watching me..... Spike and Xander have just had a conversation about Spike's non-relationship with Buffy, which she overhears just enough of...
 
I don't think you need to be familiar with the comics for this. All you need to know is that Spike and Xander live together in the same building with Buffy and Dawn.

Summary: At one point after NFA I went into a frenzy of possible reunion scenarios. One of these was written really early on, the others sort of trickled out over  time.  Mostly schmoopy (sickly sweet in some cases, if I'm honest) Ratings from PG to strong R or NC17. A little bit of angst here and there, as well as some temporary Bangel.
Bloody Awful Poet - Valentine's Day ficlet, G or PG, warning for bad poetry
Dream Lover - pretty awful in some ways, but again, really early on and I had words to put in Spike's mouth and I like my Dawn, so... PG and warning for unrealistically weepy Buffy
From the Fires of Hell - Buffy thinks she's rescuing Angel, not realizing that Spike was with him in NFA. This was meant to be part of a much longer fic that never happened. ETA And then it did. See The Gang's All Here.
Redemption Redux - written for Good Angel at Good_Evil community.  Skip this one if the idea of Bangel squicks you out. There's nothing graphic, still PG13, but she is with Angel for a while. It's Spuffy by implication.
Buffyverse 2014 - This was the first reunion fic I did. Some of Buffy's words and actions will be similar to things I had her do in more recently-written reunion fics. I'm just pretty sure it's how she would react in similar situations... This one is a strong R or NC17
Ghosts Don't Smell - two little fill in the blanks scenes from Things That Go Bump in the Night. I think I needed something for a prompt somewhere and decided to add a little something based on one of my own fics. Probably won't make sense if you haven't read Things That Go Bump.
 
Dear John -A short accidental meeting that results in misunderstandings, tears, anger and eventual reunion. ;)

Summary: Where am I? Why am I here? Who am I? The last one she had an answer for at least. She was Buffy Summers – slayer. Now there's just the issue of where and why.” Buffy wakes up in a strange place that ends up taking her on an emotional journey.

A short story that veers off canon from 7x20 Touched, starting with a forward flash from 7x22 Chosen.

Summary:  
“If you're trying to kill a slayer, maybe you should throw something at her that might actually, you know, kill her. Instead I'm stuck with a pathetic excuse for a vampire –”
“Hey!”
“– in what seems to be an empty, pretend, building.”
 
After the first slayer paid a visit to their dreams that night, the scoobies thought the worst was behind them. Well, everyone except Buffy. And maybe she had every right to be worried after all.
Goes off canon at the end of 4x22 Restless.

Summary: The first pwp was in response to a challenge years ago at the BSV. The follow-up up fic is still Porn, with a teeny amount of Plot. Only as much as is required to get them officially together. Obviously non-canon, although the first one could certainly be a fill-in-the-blanks for the season.  The second one was written for Seasonal Spuffy sometime later.
