Summary:

Tis the season once more, when all through the town, all the demons are rampaging, seeking entrails and fun; all the witches are tucked up tight in their beds; and one particular Chosen gal is serving up slayage in sweet slumber's stead.

Come join the annual holiday (and bad attempts at poetry^^) challenge fun with a related Spuffy fic! Does Giles break out the scotch for Thanksgiving Day? Does Buffy show up in Spike's crypt wearing a very special kind of Santa outfit? Does Willow involve the gang in a Hanukkah celebration (while keeping Xander from playing with the Menorah)? Does the gang celebrate New Years while fending off drunken demons? 

Reqs:

Holiday related in some way

Fic starts posting sometime during the 2018 'holiday season'

Note: cross-posted fics  from 2018 Seasonal Spuffy are welcome! If it's new to EF, it's fair game.



Summary: A Seasonal peek into the Bug-verse. Spike tries to bring some Christmas cheer to the Summers household.

Summary: Buffy discovered that Spike was alive in L.A. and has been helping with the cleanup. They, of course, inevitably got back together, and now, they’re on their first road trip together. Third person POV. Set post-NFA.
Written for Seasonal Spuffy Fall 2018.
A/N: Special thank you to badwolfjedi for brainstorming road trip fic ideas with me (couldn’t decide when and where to set it) and for reading over the story to make sure I didn’t do anything way off base. And this story is dedicated especially to dear swifthorse.

Summary: A sketchy Christmas in the Inkverse.
Be warned: this is a shamelessly sinful corruption of my favourite Christmas poem. I'll never hear it the same way again *blushes*
And there are pictures. If smutty art's not your thing, please run.

Summary: Welcome, Gentle Readers! Have you ever wondered the true meaning of Christmas? I know I have. But never fear, I, Andrew Wells -- having been privileged to bear witness to a Christmas miracle, in this the year Anno Domini Two Thousand and Two -- shall now share with you the answer, a tale that will warm the cockles of your cold, cold heart and fill you to the brim with tingly, pepperminty Christmas spirit.
 
Note: Implied chronology for s7 has Showtime taking place after Christmas, but I have bumped it up for Christmasy Reasons. See final end notes if you are pedantic like me and need a timeline breakdown.
 
Written for the “Hidden Gems” board Holiday Event, as a gift for the incomparable myrabeth. Prompt will appear in final end notes.

Summary: Summary: Buffy and Spike are helping a local Canadian Watcher solve a deadly mystery at the Fairmont Hotel in Banff at Christmastime in 2005. Will they have time to slip a little romance in there, too? (Hint: it wouldn’t be Spuffy if they couldn’t…) :o)
Author’s Note: Special thank you to Badwolfjedi who graciously answered 5,000+ questions about the hotel and encouraged me to write a story set in Canada! Between her and Google, I was set! All the little hotel details in the story are real.
