Summary: A broken soul with an eternal curse reaches across the fabric of time in hopes of something.  What the something is and what it ends up being are inevitably not the same.  What was old is new and what is new is something all together different.
Written for the Elysian Fields 'Artistic Anniversary Challenge'. Banner 61 by nmcil.  Special thanks to the artist for allowing me the chance to create something to reflect her visual challenge.

Summary: "Her wine glass crumbled in her death grip, shards embedding themselves in her skin. Her hand bled, but the sting went unnoticed in favor of the photo that had fallen to the floor. The impossible, oh-my-go-what-the-hell, panic-inducing, gut-wrenching photo that shouldn't- couldn't exist. Buffy read the letter that had come attached with it, 'What he hid, what they covered up.' No signature. Her greatest wish and her greatest fear were confirmed-
Spike was alive, and he hadn't come for her."
After discovering Spike is alive and kept it hidden from her on top of trying to discover who she is without being THE Slayer, Buffy decides she doesn't want to be "Buffy" anymore. And the only way to get rid of Buffy is to embrace the inner darkness she's been warding off since she was called. But, by embracing her more demonic side, she runs the risk of losing her humanity- and possibly her soul. All she can feel is pain, and if accepting the gift she'd denied in the past and losing her soul were the price to NOT feel, she was more than willing to pay the price. Regardless of the consequences.

Hey! This response is way late but yes, I will be. I was a lot less experienced in writing when I posted this and wasn't prepared to tell the kind of story I wanted to. I'm working on a challenge response and this right now, and I'll be posting the full chapter of this soon!

Summary: What if the secret weapon that Buffy discovered in Touched wasn’t the scythe? What if it was something else?
Spike and Buffy accidentally travel back in time from Season 7 to Season 5. When they find themselves stuck in the past they devise a plan to prevent Buffy’s death and stop the First from ever appearing. But, their presence in the past has unexpected consequences. Like, what does a crazy vampire like Drusilla do when she sees Dawn as a shiny ball of light?

Summary: It's been a year since the Hellmouth's collapse and lonely, Moon-River-singing Buffy is whiling away her days in New York until her sleepy Sunday is interrupted by an abrupt reunion with someone she thought she'd never see again (no point being vague - it's Spike)...
 
As a part of my "Silver-Screen Stories" series, this is a tribute/parody of one of my all-time favourite films, Breakfast at Tiffany's (although it is a lot more smutty). However, it is also a tribute to Hubert de Givenchy who sadly passed away this month.

Summary:

A response to Loup Noir’s Challenge.
“It doesn’t matter. If Dawn dies, I’m done with it, I’m quitting.” What if quitting wasn’t all Buffy promised?
Despite Glory’s defeat, the portal was opened. The Scooby gang sacrifice Dawn to save the world and spare Buffy the pain of having to kill her own sister. Vanishing after the battle, Buffy and Spike go into self-imposed exile for 147 days. Bereft of family and duty, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ceases to exist and is transformed into Dusk, the Slayer of All. Spike remains by her side, dedicating himself eternally and unswervingly to her cause of vengeance.
On the 148th day, the end begins. An apocalypse unlike any other is brought to town, and this time, the Slayer fights for the dark. The Scooby gang quickly learn the deeper meaning of ‘Better the devil you know…”
Thanks to Axell for the incredible banner!

Author's Response on November 03, 2018 07:14pm

Thank you so much!

Summary: Based on the challenge Hey Wait a Minute by Kereea
Right after Tabula Rasa, Buffy realizes something weird: Spike had no memories but wasn't evil. A vampire with no memories didn't even realize he was a vampire and had no inclination to do wrong when he should have theoretically been more like a new fledge with the power of an older vamp. Does this mean he's not inherently evil? Is his personality strong enough to override evil? Hell they assumed he had a soul when he doesn't, what does that mean?
Thinking this through and going to talk to Spike, Buffy stops seeing him as an evil thing and starts seeing him as a person. How does this change the rest of s6? How does this change Spuffy as a relationship?
I didn't do the entire challenge, just the set-up, so to speak.  Just a short scene I would have liked to have seen on screen.
