Summary: While vacationing in Monte Carlo, a young Buffy Summers meets the notorious William de Winter, withdrawn and desolate still from the loss of his wife. When her employer threatens to leave Europe and head back for America, William offers Buffy the choice of leaving or marrying him--a proposal she cannot refuse. With a husband she barely knows, the young bride arrives at an immense estate, only to be drawn into the life of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Drusilla, dead but never forgotten...the suite of her rooms never touched, her clothes ready to be worn, her servant-- the sinister Mrs. Hart--still loyal. And as an eerie presentiment of evil tightens around her heart, Buffy begins her search through internal destabalization and a knowledge that haunts her with every wake: she can never be Drusilla.

Summary: Buffy joins the military and heads off to Basic Training. The Boot Camp experience can be rough enough to endure, but there's something, or rather someone that will make her time spent becoming a soldier ten times worse... a Drill Sergeant sent straight from the bowels of hell that takes an instant dislike to her mere presence, Spike. He's evil, he's mean, he hates her but even worse... he lusts for her. This is not a military fic or even a fic about the military. The Army serves only as the backdrop-setting to the story, so don't shy away from reading. Nominations over at Love's Last Glimpse Awards, round 19: Best WIP, angst, Buffy characterization and fantasy. Also nominated for best author.

Loved it! I think you should add on to it. It's absolutly brilliant. 

Summary: Epilogue added: Response to Challenge Fic 'Opposites Attract' by killjoy
This one took my imagination:
Riley and Buffy are twenty something year olds dating, living together and thinking they're in love. They live a 9to5, sex in the missionary position only, boring life.
Spike and Dru move into town, next door and are the complete opposites of Buffy and Riley. They have an open relationship, threesomes and will tell each other about their conquest on the side without trouble. 
This will remain Spuffy at heart.
Hope I do it Justice killjoy!

Hi Kas, I'm glad you're enjoying this. I hope to post the next chapter later on today.

I had a bit of a mental block with the story but now I'm 'back in the zone' and it seems to be coming along nicely.

I hope to keep to regular postings from now onwards.

Thanks for your kind review x

Spike's is "Who are you?" In black 
When she meets Spike in School Hard, she realizes who her mate is - But she has no idea what to do about it.
