There's really not much to tell about me. I love writing; it's all I want to do 90% of the time. And considering I like to label myself as having both OCD and ADD, that's quite a feat given that means I'm constantly changing what I'm completely obsessed about. I do. But, Buffy and writing are one of those few things that never seem to leave me.

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.

Summary: Her life wasn’t supposed to be like this. She wasn’t supposed to be alive to worry about it. But she was—dealing with bills, being a mom to her sister, with Willow’s magic-addiction recovery, and Spike sexcapades on top of her sacred duty that—oh right—didn’t pay. At all. If she’d foreseen any of it she might have planned better.
So the question became… was getting zapped by a faulty ray gun (courtesy of a questionably misogynistic nerdy trio) and traveling back to October of 1998 to the exact moment she got back from LA after a summer of being a runaway a blessing in disguise? Was it possible there was no catch—that she could feasibly redo her life, make a better one for Dawn, and fix a few mistakes in the process?
In a strange twist of fate, Buffy finds herself zapped by The Trio’s ray gun, and, instead of being turned invisible, is shot back in time to the beginning of her return to Sunnydale in season three. With no way to get home. Home as she knew it is gone. Buffy finds herself with a rare opportunity: rewind her life and rewrite the story.
Additional Warnings: There will be Faith/Angel in this fic eventually. To avoid spoilers, I will not say to what degree.

Summary: Lucifer doesn’t slip away at the end of S2E13 like he wanted to; instead, Maze figures out his plan and tells Chloe to go after him. So before Lucifer can leave for Vegas, Chloe is there to stop him. A fight ensues. But... something unexpected happens. A portal opens under them and sucks them to another world.
Buffy’s. About a month after the episode Afterlife.
After Buffy confides in Spike in the alley behind The Box, she finds herself drawing further from her friends and closer to the vampire. She doesn’t understand it at first; only that it helps that he listens, doesn’t push, and gives her a place to go to. He flirts, sure, but only to make her laugh; there’s never any real expectation that she can detect. But she knows he loves her and... Eventually the closeness they share—his kind and unexpectedly nurturing presence—leads to something more.
She wants to tell her friends, but she knows they would never understand. She doesn’t understand it herself, feeling shame even while feeling love and happiness. More to the point, telling them about Spike would mean telling them why. And that would mean telling them about heaven.
Willow knows Buffy is hiding something. And like every problem in her life now, the redhead decides the best way to solve unhappy introverted Buffy is to perform a spell. She finds one that mentions a Prince of Truth and his Advocate. It tells her, with—duh, vagueness—that Prince of Truth will help reveal all truths asked and set things to rights.
Little does our witch know that she’s asked for far more than she ever bargained for.
Poor, Lucifer. He’s usually all for a little random chaos caused by magic, but being stuck in a 90s angsty teen’s wet dream was never his idea of fun. Especially not with the woman he’s trying to escape at bloody present.
The question is, can he solve his own buggered love life, Spuffy’s, and relieve the Scooby Gang of their bloody idiocy all that same time?

Summary: Buffy is born in 1965 to a fifteen year old Joyce who winds up marrying Hank because she refuses to give her daughter up. She becomes the slayer in 1980, meets Angel in 1981, and in 1985 the world crumbles around her. Angel loses his soul and Buffy finds herself in the difficult position choosing whether to let one of the most dangerous vampires run rampant, or, to kill the love of her life. But nothing ever goes as planned, of course. Neither she, nor Angelus, have the ability to kill the other. It is her undoing. For twelve years her family has thought her dead, when in reality she’s become Angelus’ prisoner and prize.
However, things change when her former lover, bored with how indifferent she’s become to his antics, decides to make a trip to Sunnydale, California with every intention of tormenting her mother and sister now that he's finally found them.
Buffy, desperate to find a way to save her family, makes a deal with a devil--takes a risk in trusting a vampire once again. He needs her help, after all. Trapped in a wheelchair with only her for a caretaker while Drusilla plays around with Angelus, Spike is desperate himself. What she doesn’t expect, however, is to find a kindred spirit in the master vampire. A friend… and perhaps something more.

Summary: What if Buffy's death at the end of S5 had a bigger impact on Spike than what we originally see in S6? What would have happened if Spike hadn’t pushed Buffy then, if he hadn’t allowed either of them to push one another—or their relationship—into the violence that started in Smashed? What if instead of viewing her as a creature of violence, darkness, and passion, as a vampire would, he viewed her as someone who needed something more? Someone who needed quiet and space—time? What if he hadn’t taken advantage of her, hadn’t allowed her to take advantage of him?

A very different take on Season 6. Drabbles, almost. Glimpses and rewrites of what this writer thinks would have been better and gentler for all involved. Perhaps not as interesting or fun to watch as it aired. But softer and Spuffy centric with a generally happy ending. Also with a dash of Riley closure and no character bashing.
