A collection of Christmas and New Year ficlets – all set at some point in the comics world, but going off-canon as soon as Spike and Buffy get together. Set mostly in season 9, but the last one is set in season 10 but before Spike and Buffy get back together in canon. Knowledge of comic events might be helpful, but not really necessary.

The wonderful image on the collection is by teragramm and I found it on the Seasonal Spuffy 2021 winter solstice. She was kind enough to personalize it for this collection of fics.
The image on the first New Year's Story is by Johanna Bergia!
AN: Detective Dowling is a character introduced in season 9. He admires Buffy, but a relationship never really takes off – for obvious reasons. Spike has been gone for a while on his own adventure(comic) which resulted in a crashed space ship.
Two stories set in possible New Year's Eve scenarios - one in season nine which is pretty AU but could have happened, the other in season 10, before they actually did get together in canon.
The lovely artwork is by Spuffy Latino.
