Summary: 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.

Summary: The second part to the I Would Still Have Loved You saga in which Buffy and Spike have been sent back in time --- separately and unbeknownst to each other --- some time after the events of Chosen. The idea is to prevent Buffy's death, and if that isn't possible, to prevent her resurrection and the subsequent rise of the First Evil.  Instead of arriving sometime in season 5 as expected, they find themselves in season 4 and must work out (after recognizing each other) how much to tell Giles, et al, and what things they can or should change. The underlying fear, of course, is that they will change their future so radically that they will no longer be a couple when they get there.  They have gotten through season 4 without noticeable harm, although they've acquired a new friend from the somewhat changed future Council, and an interesting landlord.
And now it's time to deal with Glory and find a way to prevent her from coming as close to success as she did in their time. And to do it without the loss of Buffy's life.

Summary: IWSHLY Part 4 (season 7 +)
Summary: Follows rewrites of seasons 4, 5, and 6 in which Buffy had been sent back in time post Chosen with the idea that she could do away with Glory (or Ben) before it got to the jumping off the tower point. The thought being that if she didn't die, and wasn't subsequently resurrected, the balance wouldn't be off and the First Evil would not become as powerful a threat as he had in her own time. Spike, meanwhile, once he'd become corporeal in Angel's office, was also sent back with the idea of preventing the same things. Neither knew about or was expecting the other, but once they were angrily facing each other in Season 4, they realized who they were and soon figured out that they were there for the same reason.
Previous parts: I Would Still Have Loved You (season 4), All About the Mission (season 5), Almost Home (season 6), and now this one which will bring them back to where they came from. Time-wise, that is. What that world is going to be like now remains to be seen.
