The Soulverse by Iamblichus
Summary: A series of stories set in the universe launched by Liebestod, wherein Buffy and Spike team up to defeat the First Evil and change the rules of the game once and for all. Running theme: What is a soul? How much difference does it make? And other deeply nerdy metaphysical questions. Also smut. But mostly emotionally-fraught metaphysical smut, so you can feel super sophisticated about reading it.

Summary: ‘Tis the season at the Slayer Academy, and the night is dark and full of terrors. Join Buffy, Spike, and the rest of the Scoobies for monsters, (mostly) chronologically-appropriate pop culture references, and just a bit of smut. Takes place about three months after the main events of Liebestod, but can be read as a standalone if you ignore the handful of references to preceding events and Spike being randomly human-ish.

One thing no one predicted? Some vampires might be more dangerous with a soul than without one. (Takes place about a year after Liebestod.)
