Brava, Holly! Brief but such huge emotional impact. I really can’t understand why it didn’t receive more ‘Favorites.’ It worked so well with the story line but resolved the terrible heartache at the end of the series. If it is ever expanded, I would love to see Buffy tell Giles and the rest (after taking Dawn aside) that she and Spike were partners and it was not open to discussion. At the end, it would have been great for B to ask S if she should look into birth control, and he to say maybe they shouldn’t. Loved this fic!

Summary: Book II of the Yellow Brick Road series. While trying to cope with mixed feelings and brewing resentment over the fact that Spike screwed her and vanished, Buffy finds herself increasingly suspicious about Faith's close relationship with Angel. Just as things can't get any more confusing, a blond vampire she was sure she would never see again decides that it's time. -- Originally published in 2003/2004; heavily edited and revised in 2019.

I really enjoyed this! It was great reading a Vampire Buffy story with a positive ending. It gave us a really supportive relationship with Spike, and worked out the insecurities and defensiveness in both characters. It was different to see kind treatment of Xander and, to some extent, Giles. It is nice for those characters to get some relief from their usual nastiness.

I don’t know if writers still look at comments after this long, but just in case... I find this story very interesting, especially considering the perspective of the more recent “Me Too” movement. Using the hyperbole of the vampire myth, I think it offers a very mature view of how dreadful mistakes can be made but gotten past with time and understanding. Spike is suffering too as well as Buffy. Ironically, I can attest that not many of our real world vampires are as caring and conscience ridden as William the Bloody. I am loving this story — totally engrossing! Thank you!

Summary: The victim of a spell gone awry, Buffy finds herself trapped in Victorian London, where she meets a man that is surprisingly familiar to her.

Great Fic! Loved the plot, loved the characters.

Summary: Buffy takes desperate measures to try to remove the temptation from her life. But when things don’t go anywhere near according to plan, she finds herself discovering what she hadn’t wanted to believe was possible. (This story is set in Season Six, but goes completely AU at the beginning of “Gone.” For the purposes of this fic, I’m ignoring the Nerd Trio and the social worker completely.)

Don’t know if authors look at or care for comments so many years after their stories are written. I liked this very much. The ending produced some much needed happiness for sad, traumatic fictional characters, and for those of us who love them. It made me reflect on how everyone was lined up to dictate Buffy’s whole being — her Watcher, parents, Angel, her best friends, Riley, school, government. Of course, a whole organization of Watchers solely existing to control her. The only ones helping her become her own person were Tara and a renegade vampire. Even Spike tried to control her in the wrong way at times. No wonder the girl had trouble knowing her own mind. Great job with this!

Summary: Alternate reality. Buffy starts as a normal college girl. But her life is slowly turned upside down beginning with the day she’s unexpectedly in danger. Hired by chance to protect her is Spike, a vampire with a reputation for doing business with anyone for enough money. She’s less than thrilled, but finds herself drawn to him even as she realizes he’s more than he seems. But humans aren’t the only ones after her, and when she’s called as the Slayer, her whole world changes. Things with Spike, who she’s discovered some realities about, are no longer as simple as they seemed. But being sent to the Hellmouth and realizing the high death rate of her calling, Buffy hires Spike as backup with the only thing she has left—Slayer blood.

Wonderful story and well written! I loved all the information about the period. It does seem worth publishing, so I hope you have tried.

Summary: Season six, post Bargaining Part I.  Demons overrun Sunnydale,  Spike is left alone in the Summers' house, and Buffy is resurrected and returns home just a few days after The Scoobies leave town.  When Spike realizes that Buffy is far from the Buffy they knew, what would he do?

Summary:

Summary: This story picks up at the end of Season 2, The Becoming 2.  Buffy has made a deal with Spike to defeat Angelus.  It goes off canon when Buffy leaves Giles' flat after talking with Whistler about how to defeat Angelus. Will Spike still help Buffy defeat Angelus when things go pear shaped?  And what then?  Where will their lives go from there?

You'll find familiar challenges for Buffy with unexpected results as Spike faces them with her. If you like a story with love, romance, sex, fights, angst, tears, laughter, marriage and babies then you're in the right place!  I hope you enjoy it!

One thing I find a bit distracting is the changes back and forth in verb tense. I wonder if you have considered just keeping the narrative in past tense? Obviously dialog is an exception. Otherwise I love your fics. Tight construction, novel plots, great action, and positive Spuffy outcomes. I think the pregnant Slayer drinking blood a la Twilight was okay since it fit. The Holtz was a good addition. I found him one of the creepiest characters in either the Buffy or Angel series.

Summary: Ever wonder what would have happened if Spike hadn't lost the Gem of Amarra to Buffy?  If he'd won that fight instead?  Warning, this story starts out very dark.  Evil vampire, after all.

Somehow I am just reading this story the first time in 2021, pandemic ongoing. If you still read these, I just wanted to say what a fabulous story this is. Loved it!

Summary: Season 5. Begins with ‘Spiral’ in the abandoned gas station, and goes *far* off-canon almost immediately.
When Dawn makes the ultimate sacrifice to save her sister, friends, and the world, Buffy’s mind snaps. When Buffy's friends give up hope of her ever recovering, and become afraid that she’ll turn violent and uncontrollable, they call in the Council to help. Fearing what the Council will do, Spike, forgotten and ignored by her friends, steps in. Will he be able to reach the Slayer when no one else could? Will he be able to keep her out of the hands of the Council and away from her ‘helpful’ friends? How much heartbreak, guilt, and failure can one girl stand before her indestructible spirit finally resigns the fight and gives up hope?
 
WARNINGS: Threesome B/G/G action involving Spike, Buffy, and BuffyBot. Implied Rape. Main Character Death. Physical Torture. Plenty of angst.

Brilliant to allow Buffy to chuck it all and bolt the second time. The poor girl Had a world of unfair pressure from Watcher, friends, family, not to get started on demons and Watcher’s Council. I always loved the Ann period for her character and this explored that beautifully. I liked that Spike was honestly created, with muggings and Drusilla longings, and some real anger at Buffy, but the payoff is his character’s extraordinary ability to love and empathize. The humor was great fun and a very nice take off from the two series. Thank you so much for these two stories. They expand the Buffy/Spike legend beautifully and are at the top of my favorites.

Summary: "Make me what I was," he'd said. And the demon did; only, he didn't expect those words to send him to his past. Unfortunately for Whistler, this meant enlisting a certain Slayer to retrieve him. In the end, Buffy found herself in for more than she bargained for. Dressing as a man was the least of her problems.

Thank you so much.  Written a long time ago, but I am still pleased with it.  At present writing historical romances - The Cousins of Pemberley series.  I have a hard time stopping vampires and Slayers from showing up!!!

Summary:

Goes off-canon during The Harsh Light of Day. Sunnydale is devastated by the release of a prototype virus that was being developed by a branch of The Initiative. Now, half the population is 'infected', and the other half is living on borrowed time. A bite will turn you into one of them, and Buffy's got her mom and sister to think about. With the gem, Spike's immune and so it makes perfect sense to Buffy that he should help them get out of town. But this thing's already bigger than Sunnydale, and if Spike's their best chance of survival then it looks like he's along for the ride.
 

Introducing: A vampire who's been needed before, but never exactly wanted. And a girl struggling to understand the true nature of good and evil, whilst standing shoulder to shoulder with the Slayer of Slayers. (Inspired by Stephen King's The Stand, AMC's The Walking Dead and every zombie flick I've ever set eyes on).

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....

Really interesting fic. The ending is only partly sad. She may find a happy life with Will now, unless it really is an alternate dimension. Thanks for giving them one chance to make love. I wonder how Giles would feel with Spike saving the world and losing his first slayer. 

Author's Response on October 04, 2021 04:58pm

Thanks for reading. Yes, it's intentionally ambiguous. It's up to the reader to determine what is real and what is not. I guess, with Buffy not making it out, Giles may not know for sure that it was Spike that saved the world. Maybe Faith saw enough to know what he did.  I'm glad you found it interesting. Thanks for telling me so.

Summary: So this was what it felt like to give your life for the cause and end up where? Limbo? Post buffy series 7 finale, Spike finds himself trapped inside the amulet, a crystal prison. There appears to be no end to his confinement until one day something happens to change everything…. Off Cannon, set post ‘Chosen’.
I’m going to call this a pilot. If you’d like to see more then I’ll continue, if not I’ll leave it as a one shot. Don’t forget to let me know what your thoughts are.
I've left this as R rated but if I continue the story its likely to move to NC17.

Comment from a Johnny Come Lately:  Loved the live swimmers’ touch! Perfect ending!

Random thoughts for future fics: Really loved Wesley’s part in this. He became such a memorable character in the Angel series. Could use more Wesley and Fred in future fanfics (along side Spuffy, of course). I think it would be great if Spike and Buffy took the LA group back to the Hotel and formed their own demon fighting organization that coordinated with and outshone the Council. I’d like to see Giles and Willow retained but put in their place.

Author's Response on May 04, 2019 10:43am

I agree, Fred and Wesley are great characters, I'd love to see someone write a Spuffy run demon organisation, perhaps you should add it as a challenge? 

Thanks so much for commenting, I'm sorry it took a while to get back to you.

Summary: Buffy moves into an old, desolate, mansion with her mother but it soon seems they are not alone, something evil resides alongside them, trapped within the abandoned house, moving within its walls and whispering its secrets.
Eventually, Buffy comes face to face with the creature and comes to understand why it is imprisoned there. This knowledge puts eighteen-year-old, human, Buffy in a dangerous situation as she begins to learn about a world she never knew existed and fight against an evil she has no chance of defeating.

GOOD JOB! YOU HAVE US LIKING THE PIP AND KYLE CHARACTERS SO MUCH THAT WE ARE REALLY WORRIED WITH THEIR CHOICE OF DRINKING PARTNERS. HOPE THEY ARE NOT HURT!

Loved the dramatic action of the two vampires mid-air crash a la Edward Cullens? Also the moors and dark Wuthering Heights-like atmosphere. Since I am an American, I especially love the area dialects. It’s refreshing that Spike gets to be the stronger protective partner for a change, although I keep wondering if this Buffy is going to toughen up and help save the day. I find myself losing interest in many longer fics but this one is still really engaging.

Very cinematic — great action scenes. I really liked the idea of Dru turning the dog, and saying, “Bad doggie!” Would require a Buffy fan to totally get that allusion, but still would be effective for any. Very frightening Hound-of-the-Basquervilles type scenes on the moor. A Bull Mastiff, Great Dane, or Irish Wolfhound would also be good. Of course, seeing even a pet Labrador Retriever turn into slavering attack dog would be terrifying. The little boy ghost Tommy adds a lot. A vampire bishop? Friend or foe?

Eloise, I'm so glad you're still reading this and I Lol'd about the size of the dog, I thought a Labrador was more likely to be redeemed later in the fic but people found this chapter hard going when they first read the fic and were shocked at what happened to the poor creature, I felt terrible. I'm glad the atmosphere came through as you are totally right about Hound-of-the-Basquervilles, it was what I was going for. 

Now, the vamp-bishop will be revealed when you read on, no spoilers for you, sweetie :D

Let me know how you find the rest, I'd be interested to know. Thank you so much for your comments. hug
