THE EVIL BITCH MONSTER OF CLIFFHANGERS. ;-)

[Formerly known as AGriffinWriter, in case it's confusing.]

Greetings, gentle viewers/readers. I got obsessed with Buffy in December 2012 and have been writing fanfic and drooling over Spike ever since. I'm an environmental engineer... essentially I design systems that turn crap into clean water and fertilizer. I drink far too much coffee for someone of my size, I like kickboxing and yoga, and I'm an avid fan of The Dresden Files. I'm also a huge fan of Dollhouse, Elementary, Firefly, and Leverage.

If you ever want to suggest challenges, make requests, or just talk, feel free to message me. I don't bite (that's Spike's job, and he does it so deliciously well). You can also hit me up on tumblr with any prompts you can think of (agentsofsunnydale)!

Summary: Season Five one-shot. Slightly inspired by a less than pleasant dance I experienced, when I wish there’d been a Spike to sweep me away. Some Riley bashing. I was in need of some cathartic Spuffy angst… which ended up getting rather steamy. Takes place sometime between “Fool for Love” and “Into the Woods”. Buffy POV. Spike is in love with Buffy but she has no clue.
