Summary: More than a year post NFA, Buffy is in self-imposed exile. Her only solace is a robot that looks like the vampire who sacrificed himself in a cave under Sunnydale. Spike is unable to stay away, only he's fighting his own inner battles he doesn't want to burden her with. Impersonating a robot for a few days should be easy, right? Completed 3/25/2018.

Summary: Spike and Buffy are being inventive: Buffy’s the head cheerleader, and William her seductive English tutor; Queen Fi pleasured by her enslaved eunuch; Will and Buff in an illicit tryst in a posh boarding school; the follower of Lucifer properly tormented for turning to the side of the devil. A lot of things can happen in five hours.

Summary: I got this idea after I read “For the Dark” by Sandra S, which can be found at www.obsidianmoonlight.com. The similarities are as follows - Angel never got his soul back and is now the new vampire king of Sunnydale, with Dru as his queen. Buffy gets vamped. Spike’s still wheelchair bound, and they wind up having to share a room. Other than that, the story is mine.
