I was happy to re read this edit. I remember reading this way back. Really liked the concept that Buffy thought him being there was a dream. Thanks for posting!

Summary: She'd kicked his butt, taken the Gem and sent it off to Angel. Buffy thought she'd seen the last of Spike. Clearly, she’d been too optimistic. That he was in her house, in her room, waking her out of a sound sleep and asking for (okay, demanding) her help meant that something had to be majorly wrong. They weren't due for another apocalypse, but...why else would a vampire make a truce with the Slayer?

I just found this gem after re-reading your other lovely work. Wanted to say I hope this story will have an update someday and I have loved it so far.

Summary: Future fic. Decades after the battle in Los Angeles and two years after a small army of Slayers destroyed the Dragvlok homeland, Dragvloks are on a mission to destroy the Slayer line. It’s up to a Slayer in California and the self-appointed Saviour of Slayers to stop the bloodshed. Both think they’re on a mission to save the next generation of Slayers, but they may just end up saving each other.

Just read this all the way through. This is amazing. Would love to see a conclusion on this. Love the way you write Spike and Buffy.

Summary: Response to Challenge 471 on The Bloodshedverse: Instead of "Crush", Spike decides to slowly and anonymously woo the Slayer... Will Buffy love him back when she discovers the truth?

This first chapter involves a rewriting of the dream sequence at the end of Out of My Mind, and goes A/U from there.

love all your comic book stuff! keep it coming :D

Summary: In a future gone to hell in a hand basket, Spike has discovered his last means of taking back Earth from demon-kind. But when he arrives a little bit farther in the past than he anticipated, he finds himself dealing with the fact that he can't change anything about the terrible future for a few years. What's a newly unsouled vampire to do? Particularly with a sixteen year old Slayer and those obnoxious vampiric family members?

Summary: Buffy decides it's time to talk to Spike about what can and cannot be.
Takes place in comic universe, but it's absolutely not neccesary to be up on the comic happenings to follow this story. And it's not particularly spoilery.{#Wink}

eek! so glad to see you writing again. love comic-fic, and love this. teared up and shivered a bit at this line:

 

She nodded and, gathering the frayed edges of her nerves together, stood as tall and certain as she could. “I guess, I mean I’m sure—what I’m offering is me.”

Summary: My take on Spike's return to Buffy's life after his soul searching space mission in season 9.  It's not as dramatic as Buffy expected but it's exactly what she needs.

I've been trying to imagine in my mind how they would recover from where they've been led in the comics. I really like this suggestion!



Author's Response:

Thanks! I wish they would reconcile them in the comics.

Love this concept and the delivery. And especially this line:

"The words were near-silent, a thousand flavors of fear muffling the conviction she had meant to put into the words.  Maybe he wasn’t real.  Maybe he wouldn’t believe her.  Maybe he didn’t care anymore.  Maybe they’d missed their chance."

Summary: Update as of 26 February 2015: This story is still being worked on. Health problems and family difficulties have given my muse a cramp, but she is stretching and exercising and working the hitch out and I hope to update in the relatively near future. It has not been abandonded and will never be a PWIP. If it takes me a decade I will finish this story. (and it may since I first posted Chapter 1 in 2006)
     Response to Skybound's Bloodshedverse Challenge #101. Instead of Spike just shrugging his shoulders and leaving Angelus to kill Buffy he hesitates and decides to lend a hand. Some dialogue taken from Becoming II. AU from Becoming II. Almost the entire story is told through Buffy and Spike's inner monologue. Revamped from my WIP posted at TSR in 2006. Changes will become more readily apparent in later chapters as I get rid of the elements that I felt wrote me into a corner back in the day. Posting will be intermittent for a short while due to a family obligation, but I'm aiming for @ 2 times a week now that I've reached the point that I'm no longer revamping old material.

Summary: She should have dusted him the moment he set foot in her town, but the look in his eyes... how could a soulless monster have such eyes? She couldn't end him until she knew. Set in an alternate Season 2 where Drusilla dusted in Prague and Spike came to town anyway.

Author's Response:

Thank you. I love comic fic too, everyone's so down on the comics but there's a lot of things I love about them. Plus they've spawned bug ship fic.

Summary: Insert fake sister A into memory slot B.  When the monks form Dawn, the PTB take a helping hand in the creation of the fake memories.  How does the interactions with Dawn in the past change Buffy and Spike's relationship in the present and ultimately the future?  Begins in S5 but quickly downturns to S2.  Spike/Buffy with Spike and Dawn friendship. 
Many thanks to Pfeifferpack for the wonderful banner.
