Summary:

Part Two of the Something Wicked series  (S5, beginning with "Buffy vs Dracula")

Spuffy have been together for a while now.  Things have been great.  The Scoobies have more or less accepted the reality of their couplehood, Spike finally has his own place, so there’s plenty of thoroughly excellent shag-time, and college is kind of fun when you have a worldly, undead tutor to poke fun at your instructors and help you remember your lessons with fascinating anecdotes or, when that fails, incredibly memorable sexy-times.  Life is actually, like, bordering on good

But then Mr. Eurovamp 2000 blows into town and causes a bunch of jealousy.  And then Buffy starts having a bunch of crappy Slayer dreams about glowy purply stuff.  And Dawn is going off the hook even more than usual, and Mom is acting weird…  And, as if there’s not enough to deal with, Buffy’s pretty sure that idiot Riley Finn is still lurking around town trying to come up with a reason to shoot her boyfriend…

Buffy should have known things couldn’t stay yummy for long.  She probably would have started to worry if it had.

Summary: Set in season 6-7 and after (ignoring comics), this story begins soon after Older and Far Away. Warren, and this troupe of misfit baddies, The Trio, has Buffy over a barrel. They’ve got video evidence of her trysts with Spike – and plenty of it. If she doesn’t do what they want, they’ll broadcast the explicit video all over the internet – everyone will know her dirty little secret. Buffy’s never felt so lost and alone and utterly ashamed. After being dragged out of heaven, her soul aches, and Spike’s the only one who can ease her pain, but her friends would never understand. While trying to help the Slayer out of this jam, Spike inadvertently reveals a secret of his own, one that he’s worked hard to keep hidden even from himself, one that will change the way Buffy sees him and change their dance forever. 
How will everyone's lives change as they face life on the Hellmouth when Buffy begins to see that Spike is not like Angel, and accepts him into her life and her heart as an equal rather than a dirty little secret?
The answer is: dramatically!  
Summary: As the Slayer, Buffy Summers has helped a lot of people in her twenty years.  But there's one person she's never gotten to help:  Buffy Summers.  When she leapt into the portal that Glory forced open, any chance to help any Buffy anywhere went with her.  Or did it?
Now the lead ambassador to the Powers that Be is playing "Let's Make a Deal" with her afterlife and the leaps have only just begun.  Where will she leap to next - and will it be to heaven?  Or will the next leap be her leap back home?  (With apologies to one of my favorite shows next to Buffy and Angel, "Quantum Leap.")

Summary:
A continuation of the AU Unexpected. While Spike and Bess are on a mission with Angel, Buffy and Annie find themselves embroiled in a life and death struggle in a Sunnydale that is far from home.  Most of their friends are dead; those that remain have changed so much as to be nearly unrecognizable. Can they be trusted to help Buffy and Annie get back home or will they use the opportunity to escape the hell they've been living in and leave the Slayer and her daughter to languish in a dimension ruled by demons? As Buffy tries to keep her daughter safe, she must put her trust in someone - that someone is Spike, but he's changed too.

Spike's noticed that there's something a little off with the Slayer...but maybe something's a little off with him, too.

Summary: 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 third part in the trilogy that began with Uncontrollable and Unmentionable. Please read those first. In Unknown, Buffy and Spike's relationship is no longer a secret from most, but there are many things which remain hidden. A story of love and friendship continuing to survive in the face of secrets, challenges, and unknown dangers.

Check under 'Series' to see the whole AU story.  As Buffy settles back into life after the 'Wish World' and gets ready for a new addition to their family, an old friend pulls the financial rug out from under their fairly comfortable life. They also find that something from Spike's old life isn't as they thought. Will they end up sacrificing the littlest bit or even their own lives in an effort to make an old wrong right?

This all human fic is the second one I've written for a challenge by Angelic Amy for the 2017 Artistic Anniversary Challenge. The idea is that Spike and Buffy meet by chance and have terrific chemistry, but when Spike discovers their substantial age difference he backs off. Buffy, however, is determined to get her man.

Summary: Season 5. Begins with ‘Spiral’ in the abandoned gas station, and goes *far* off-canon almost immediately.
When Dawn makes the ultimate sacrifice to save her sister, friends, and the world, Buffy’s mind snaps. When Buffy's friends give up hope of her ever recovering, and become afraid that she’ll turn violent and uncontrollable, they call in the Council to help. Fearing what the Council will do, Spike, forgotten and ignored by her friends, steps in. Will he be able to reach the Slayer when no one else could? Will he be able to keep her out of the hands of the Council and away from her ‘helpful’ friends? How much heartbreak, guilt, and failure can one girl stand before her indestructible spirit finally resigns the fight and gives up hope?
 
WARNINGS: Threesome B/G/G action involving Spike, Buffy, and BuffyBot. Implied Rape. Main Character Death. Plenty of angst.

Summary: More or less a sequel to "A Raising In the Sun."   However, all you need to know is that Willow brought Buffy back to life using Dawn's blood and William's soul, and Buffy does not remember heaven. n.b. I started writing this in September 2001, when "Amends" was the only canonical source of information on the First Evil, and finished it in May of 2003. Naturally I got Jossed a number of times in the course of writing. Some of these inconsistencies I revised to accord with the show's canon before completing the story. Others I decided to leave as is, specifically the First Evil's appearances as living people, and the fact that some of the Harbingers in this story are cabable of speech.

Thanks to Aurelio Zen for lettin' me play with her Zagros demon, and many, many thanks to all the folks at the Redemptionista Writers Group for beta reading.

Summary: 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: Life can be difficult when you are fifteen years old with a baby and few options. Fortunately Buffy Summers is a resourceful girl. Spuffy. All human AU in Four Parts. It's a high school fic with actual high school coming up in Parts Two thru Four. This is a very long saga and will be completed. NOTE: The ratings and warnings I am giving for this story do not represent the entire story - they allow for occasional forays into difficult subjects, but most chapters do not dwell there. It's not a fluffy story, but it is not unrelentingly grim. Like life, it flows among the highs and lows. IMPORTANT: Although Parts One and Two are mostly R content, beginning in Part Three the story will move into more NC-17 territory. ‘The Song Remains the Same’ consists of Parts One and Two. When we move into Part Three it will start a new posted ‘story’ as Parts One and Two are quite long enough on their own. Winner of 'Judge's Pick' in Round 11 of Spuffy Awards and Winner of Best Fantasy Angst and Best Fantasy Author in Round 12 of the Spuffy Awards.

But who watches the Slayer's back when she's the prey? Someone makes Spike an offer he can't refuse- but not what you'd expect.

Summary: After nearly five months spent in a Hell that was strangely like Heaven, Buffy and Spike have come back to the real world.  And guess what?  There’s a reason why Hell was so much fun.  For one thing, there weren’t old friends and ex-Watchers there, and the ur-Slayer didn’t have to figure out what to tell her baby Slayers about the whole, ‘in a lifelong, committed relationship with a vampire’ sitch.  Also, you know, now there was giant Dawn to deal with, and figuring out where to set up housekeeping if everything went to… well, hell. 
Also, you know, there was that whole business with the Scourge.  Couldn’t drop the ball on that. 

Note:  This is a sequel to “LA Is the Hell You Make It”, and is Part 3 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: RESPONSE TO CHALLENGE #157 AU: Breaks from canon after Season Four...Five years after the Initiative disaster, the world is a very different place, where society in general knows about demons and vampires, and have found ways to dominate them. Buffy is trapped in an unhappy marriage to a man who doesn't seem to want her, trapped in a world that doesn't seem to need her anymore...can an old ally and enemy, sold into her home as a slave, teach her the meaning of freedom? Buffy/Other, temporary *NOMINATED AT THE FANG FETISH AWARDS AND THE FOOL FOR LOVE AWARDS!!!*

Summary: Summary: In an AU season 5, a mysterious carnival has popped up on the outskirts of town – and Spike’s kittens are lost in it! Buffy and the Scoobies must navigate a maze of rides, animals, and deep-fried treats to help Spike capture all his kittens and repay his gambling debts. What happens in the story? It all depends on the choices you make. How does the story end? Only you can find out! And you can keep reading and rereading until Buffy and Spike have had not one but many incredibly daring (and possibly smutty) experiences! Choose your own adventure! More than 20 possible endings!!
 
NC-17 because it does indeed get smutty. Don’t let the posted size of this beast fool you; the longest successful trip through is only 18 chapters, and the successful runs are ~40K words, so unless you are crazy and try to read all the paths in one day (which I do not recommend) it’s merely a novella.

Summary: The real life Buffy, tells her own real life story, of being the Slayer and her relationship with that ONE vampire in all the world. Working under the assumption that the TV series was based on a book based on real life, this is Buffy's story of what it was like to be the Slayer and how things really went down for her and Spike. It's her personal story that didn't even make it into the book! The sometimes sad, sometimes scary, sometimes sweet and always sexy love story that we know as Spuffy.

Goes AU after Something Blue. Gleefully ignores the rest of Season 4 canon, except to score cheap laughs. Warnings for gratuitous bad language, shameless bad jokes, and one bad, bad vampire. Smuttier than planned.

Summary: Set in early Season Five. When Dracula called Buffy ‘kindred’’, he was doing a bit more than just saying they had a lot in common. Hungry for knowledge of herself and her power, Buffy didn’t realize what kind of connection he had forged with her until he left town, and the damage was done. Hoping to break his hold over her, Buffy requests help from Spike. However, the way you break the hold of one vampire is to let another one possess you more fully. But, it’ll only be temporary, right? Simple business, that’s all...

Summary: Basically obsessed; basically a stalker; basically a love drunk fool. Spike Pratt, loner and occasional alcoholic, is foolishly trapped in a constant game of hide and seek. He is Buffy Summers' shadow, and she has no clue. He watches from a distance, draws pictures of her, and every day flies by faster than the last, doused in wishes on pennies that he could only talk to her.
~~~
A small town in Wisconsin, U.S.A., surrounded by corn fields and not much else, Buffy lives as a store owner, and free advice giver for young adults. Her lonely home is a beautiful cabin, and her closest neighbor is the pond out front that gathers mosquitoes and frogs during summer. On a day she has imagined for years since the day he left, an ex love shocks her to her very foundations with a request. His name is Angel, and she never knew she would be so set on telling him no, but when it happens, she feels a weight lift from her chest. A weight that is seemingly ten years old. With it, she realizes just how lonely she is, and how quickly time has allowed her to travel down the road to becoming one of those cat ladies. She never wanted to be dubbed an "Old Maid," but even the reflection in the mirror is saying it now.

Then, a storm gathers in the form of a man with odd hair and even odder midnight rituals. She realizes quickly he is somehow lonelier than she, and Buffy feels drawn to him for just that reason, among maybe a hundred others...
