Summary: Spike's just a drummer, content to live in lead singer Angel's shadow. But when a certain blonde strolls in on Angel's arm, will Spike be content to take the backseat forever? Loosely based on the eighties song, Jesse's Girl.

Really great story! Badass/Angst Spike is delicious! The scene where he drives her to Sunnydale to visit her mom's grave is lovely and I think my favorite scene is morning snuggles!

Such a cute fic and fun read! I like that Buffy was the pursuer and Spike was the one getting wigged out by! She was definitely a bit aggressive, but like you say, she is Action Girl! Oh...and the scene under the tree in the third chapter was just HOTT!! heart Thanks! 

Summary: What if Buffy had paid more attention to what Spike said directly after, "Out. For. A. Walk . . . Bitch."? How would she have responded if she'd caught his blunder? An alternate Season 5 unfolds. Note: this fic closely adheres to canon, but with a Spuffy twist. Think of it as "How Season 5 Should Have Been".
M for action/violence/torture, mild language, character deaths, and "lusty wrong feelings". ;)

Oh my heart just keeps breaking in this story. Spike's pain was almost palpable and it just makes me want to slap Buffy around a bit. Poor Spike heart...can't wait to see him come out on top at some point! lol hug

Summary: He has lost two Slayers. She's just lost her Watcher. Now they're stuck with each other and neither is particularly happy about it.
Drabble series set in an AU.
Thank you so much to the very kind person who nominated me at the Running with Scissors Awards for the Cookie Dough / Best WIP category! I'm over the moon!

That was lovely. I really enjoyed the twists you added to the seasons to take them in another direction that didn't leave our slayer as scarred ( Angel, Riley, etc)...and Spike as the strong partner she needed...*swoon*...loved their relationship! 

Summary: Part one of the Void Verse.
When Buffy sacrifices herself by jumping into Glory's portal, she finds herself stuck as a ghost and chained to Spike. He can't see or hear her, but she witnesses everything he does. Picks up after Season 5 Episode 22 "The Gift" and the sequel will flow into an alternative Season 6.

Your story is so beautiful. I rarely cry during a story, but this one has me tearing up almost every chapter. Spike's grief is so raw and real...I wish the writing team had writers like you on staff when writing the series, maybe our two champions would have happy endings.
