Summary: When Buffy rents the house of her favorite celebrity to share a weekend getaway with her sister, she's surprised to find the previous tenant hasn't completely vacated it. As much as she enjoyed the tequila, the view, and the hot tub, it's him she can't seem to get out of her head. The end of a long-term relationship and the premier of a new TV show have Spike turning over a new leaf and uncovering a new look. He's sworn off cigarettes and young women but a chance encounter with a determined miracle seeker reminds him that happiness is about more than cutting unhealthy things out of your life; it's about having the bravery to let good things in.

Summary: To get his son back, Angel makes a deal with a demon and in exchange for getting his son out of Quor'toth, the dimension to which Holtz took Connor to, the vampire must sacrifice something he created as Angelus. Since he doesn't know where Drusilla was, his best bet would be to use the one she created in his name, William, aka Spike.
 
So the souled vampire travels to Sunnydale in order to get Spike and use him to get his son back. What he hadn't expected was finding resistance from the Scoobies he used to work with and a Slayer he used to date.

Summary: It's several years after NFA and Buffy has found a nice house in London. Bit of a fixer-upper, but it has some things to recommend it. Spike and Angel lost their battle with the Senior Partners and have been gone long enough for Buffy to have moved on with her life.  Then she finds something living in her garden shed... and demons come to town... and it's a whole 'take care of the creature in the shed and fight big scary demons from another dimension' thing.  And then it gets complicated....
Story inspired by a lovely artwork by Kudagirl, which I will hope to be able to put up. There is also a marvelous "book cover" by "useyourlove" that I'm going to try to include on the story somewhere. My recollection is that I couldn't get it on PB for some reason, but we'll see. 
Multiple award winner in its day....

Summary: Disclaimer: Just making Joss’s characters do naughty things a little sooner than he did. Originally written 6/1/06.
Written at the request of an ailing acquaintance who asked for a PWP to cheer her up. This is what I came up with - Buffy falls asleep in the sun and gets a bad burn.  Can a vampire help? Nothing but PWP, so expect a wildly OOC Buffy.

Inspired by TS Eliot's wonderful poem, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock - you may spot deliberate references. Spike is definitely not broody, after Dead Things, but it's fair to say he's being reflective. Till Clem arrives.

Summary:   A sequel to another fic that took Post Chosen/NFA in a very different direction, almost all of which took place in an alternate Season II; this fic follows the Season II Buffy and Spike into the dimension to which the Powers sent them when they put “our” Spike and Buffy into the Season II world/dimension.  (Confused yet? LOL) There will be appearances by the original Spike and Buffy, as well as Dawn and others, but the primary emphasis will be on the Spike and Buffy who were removed from their own world and their adventures in the one in which they have found themselves.  Naturally, there will be a growing relationship between the two strangers when they find themselves thrown together.

Summary:   Follows immediately after the conclusion of The Bodyguard.  Buffy has driven off with Giles to take the partially drained Riley back to his base for medical treatment.  Spike has walked Xander to his home, surprisingly cheerful for someone whose help was barely acknowledged by Giles, Xander and Riley. In his pocket is the queen chess piece that Dracula had used to keep his thrall on Buffy. As with The Bodyguard, this takes place in a very non-canon Spuffyverse in which Dracula makes his appearance during an AU season 4, in which the Initiative is still in business.  If purists are upset about that, I’m sorry, but that’s where I accidentally put him in the first story, so that’s where we begin this one.

Summary: Part One of a Series. 
Post Chosen Buffy and AtS season 5 Spike are sent back (separately) to prevent Glory from opening the portal that resulted in Buffy's death and resurrection, thus triggering the rise of the First Evil. Neither one knows about the other, and the story was intended to be humorous as they stumble around trying to maintain fictional personas. That lasted only as long as it took them to have a face-to-face argument.  Which changed everything....  The fact that they've been dropped into season 4 of BtVS means they have to get though an entire year without causing any major changes to the time line. Which could be tricky, given that it's already changed just by their being there where/when they are.
