I've been writing for a long time, but very slowly. I get writer's block and take breaks numbered in months instead of weeks. I haven't posted here before since I wasn't producing much, but my new stories are progressing at more than a snail's pace, so I'm going to start posting here. Watch this space!

Summary: Buffy and Willow, too much wine, and what is either a brilliant or terrible idea for a spell. AKA, drunken spell casting, librarian taunting, and other assorted perils of living in LA.
This story vaguely exists in the FAA-verse, but don't make yourself crazy trying to fit it into the existing timeline.

Summary: When Buffy gets a job somewhere other than the Doublemeat Palace, she faces a whole lot of new stresses, and completely different challenges. Not so much a Season 6 rewrite as an office story featuring Buffy and her life on the Hellmouth. Originally begun in 2007, though only a few chapters were ever previously posted.
