Summary: When 16-year-old Buffy wakes up one morning to find herself inexplicably in the body of her 20-year-old self, she isn't too wigged; just another day on the Hellmouth, right? She doesn't think it'll be too hard to get herself back to where she belongs. At first. As it turns out, things aren't that simple. Now she has to find a way to adjust to a future she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams (or worst nightmares) and come to grips with the fact that she may be happier never recovering that which she's 'lost' then she ever could've been otherwise.

Inspired by one of the best vacations my partner and I have taken so far and also by a decadently soft fleece blanket I picked up recently at Costco. Just got the old mind a wandering... (In other words, this one ain't terribly long on plot, folks! ;-)

Summary: Sunnydale Memorial Awards Round 27 Nominee: Set in early S. 3 with a few changes: Buffy is still working in LA, she never had the run-in with Lily that made her decide to go back to Sunnydale, and Spike's come back to California already. Both of them are living completely separate, unrelated lives until fate and its sick sense of humor throw them together. Part angst, part fluff, and of course, eventually a little smut.

Summary: He knew evil – understood evil. Evil was a thing of humankind. The Good People were no such thing; they understood as little of morality as they did of airplane engineering, or taxes. In the stories they were cruel and generous by turns, took what they wanted and cast it aside uncaring, and the rules they obeyed were strange and unfathomable. Rules of home and hearth, of salt, blood and running water, of cold iron and ceremony.
 
Above all, though, they always kept their bargains.
 

 
A alternative S5, starting from just after Triangle. This story is about fairies - but definitely not the Tinkerbell kind. The kind that are much older, and bloodier, and have teeth
 
Be careful what you wish for.

Summary: Could be considered season six and seven (or even season five at the beginning and almost an AH), but I call it AU because there's some ambiguity about which world is real. The premise is what if Buffy really was delusional and eventually recovers her sanity enough to leave the mental hospital and begin her life anew? Can she really shake off the responsibilities of the slayer that easily? Not a particularly fluffy fic by the end. Just so you know....

Buffy finds herself caught in the wrong body, in the wrong time, needing the assistance of a purely evil Spike. Now she must attempt to forge their trust anew, when the dynamic isn’t that of slayer and redeemed, but only that of vampire... and victim.

Summary: Her life wasn’t supposed to be like this. She wasn’t supposed to be alive to worry about it. But she was—dealing with bills, being a mom to her sister, with Willow’s magic-addiction recovery, and Spike sexcapades on top of her sacred duty that—oh right—didn’t pay. At all. If she’d foreseen any of it she might have planned better.
 
So the question became… was getting zapped by a faulty ray gun (courtesy of a questionably misogynistic nerdy trio) and traveling back to October of 1998 to the exact moment she got back from LA after a summer of being a runaway a blessing in disguise? Was it possible there was no catch—that she could feasibly redo her life, make a better one for Dawn, and fix a few mistakes in the process?
 
In a strange twist of fate, Buffy finds herself zapped by The Trio’s ray gun, and, instead of being turned invisible, is shot back in time to the beginning of her return to Sunnydale in season three. With no way to get home. Home as she knew it is gone. Buffy finds herself with a rare opportunity: rewind her life and rewrite the story.
 
Additional Warnings: There will be Faith/Angel in this fic eventually. To avoid spoilers, I will not say to what degree.

Summary: With a tub of ice-cream in her lap, Buffy wallows in misery over Angel disappearing out of her life in a puff of overly dramatic smoke. Her life gets turned upside down when her hated enemy staggers drunk off his face to her front porch. Not only is he demanding her help, he is invading her personal space. She’s had enough!

Post-S3. Angel and Drusilla are a no show. Meanwhile Buffy and Spike embark on an adventure full of childish bickering, UST and reluctant camaraderie that will change what they thought were unshakable perceptions.

This is a shameless crackfic. There will be bad language, sexual situations, iffy character development, and decapitations. Also many references to songs by the B-52’s. Here’s a Spotify playlist: http://open.spotify.com/user/12180930371/playlist/0zCn0skDlEQq0qu2x8UgwS

It all depends on the choices you make. How does the story end? Only you can find out!

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.
