Spare Banners

It turns out I have a lot of spare banners lying around (some left over from the Artistic Anniversary Challenge last year) which I realized I was never gonna use, so they're up for grabs - with titles and plot bunnies attached! 

So, if you want one of these banners, send me a PM and I'll send it to you with your name attached. biggrin

(If you're wondering why I haven't posted them as challenges - well, I tried, but the banners didn't show up for some bizarre reason. And since they show up here, I decided to lump them all together for everyone to see.) 

 

 

 

 

Secrets to a Successful Relationship: Spike knows Buffy - so he knows that the Slayer dancing with the Immortal isn't really her. He hears from Andrew that Buffy has gone off the grid, and is living under the false name Joan Randy. This banner is being held for DianaM. 

 

 

 

 

Crawling Out of the Woods: The dream wasn't a dream. (And Riley is Glory.) This banner is being held for bewildered. 

 

Bad Blood: Karalak, AKA Kara, is a Vengeance Demon and the Patron Saint of Betrayed Friends. She's answered the call of Buffy Summers and intends to grant her wish... Set early season six. This banner is being held for DianaM.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garden of Thorns: "The Harsh Light of Day". Instead of fighting Buffy, Spike is sympathetic and takes her out for a drink. This begins an unusual friendship between mortal enemies that very quickly becomes something more... This banner is being held for DianaM.
