Honestly not sure if I would have become such a BTVS fan if Spike hadn't driven into Sunnydale and into my heart. 

I remember the first moment I saw him and was inistantly in love with the character. 

I RL...I'm a mom, grandmother, artist, writer, lover of all things rabbit. 


I Love this site!

This all human fic is the second one I've written for a challenge by Angelic Amy for the 2017 Artistic Anniversary Challenge. The idea is that Spike and Buffy meet by chance and have terrific chemistry, but when Spike discovers their substantial age difference he backs off. Buffy, however, is determined to get her man.
Huge thanks to Angelic Amy for the inspiration, teragramm for being an awesome and encouraging alpha reader and making the beautiful banner, and Badwolfjedi for being my cheerleader and beta reader.

Summary: The real life Buffy, tells her own real life story, of being the Slayer and her relationship with that ONE vampire in all the world. Working under the assumption that the TV series was based on a book based on real life, this is Buffy's story of what it was like to be the Slayer and how things really went down for her and Spike. It's her personal story that didn't even make it into the book! The sometimes sad, sometimes scary, sometimes sweet and always sexy love story that we know as Spuffy. 
Thank you to the lovely and talented teragramm for the beautiful banner!
