Welcome! In case you are wondering how to pronounce SzmattyCat, it's a "shh" sound, followed by a "Matty"... Kind of like schmaltz, but with a matt instead of the malt...

Totally obsessed with Spike. Less so Buffy (am I allowed to say that here?) but I'm 100% a Spuffy supporter because I always want the boy to be happy and to get his girl.

Summary: William is trying to accept that he will never have a role in Buffy's life, even though he secretly wrote an entire play for her (just so he could imagine that she is saying those words he craves to hear to him). But Buffy and Angel are so lucky: they are in love both in the play AND in real life. Or are they? Can William step in to save the day (and the play) when everything falls apart with no time left to do another casting call?

Warning/Spoiler: This story includes some breastfeeding; if you are squicked by nursing (babies or adults receiving), this fic is not for you. I would not consider this a "sexy times" fic, though I am now aware that some consider parts of it to be so. I'm adding a taboo warning and setting the rating higher than I personally would consider necessary out of an abundance of caution, as the topic is so subjective.

Summary: Buffy is having a strange night. The usual baddies are nowhere to be found, Spike is back in town (without Drusilla and on a drunken mission to use magic to make her love him again), and the feathers are flying... though not any time that Buffy is actually there. She just finds them blowing around town near Spike's abandoned car. And when she finally finds Spike, it is not at all what she expects.
Beginning of "Lover's Walk" but goes off-canon right from the start.

This didn't feel like a Slayer dream or even some kind of a vision. Delusion. Nightmare! It felt real. Surreal but... real. Just what was happening here? She had a terrible feeling that Willow had been right, and they shouldn't have used that spell. Just her luck to be trapped inside someone that wasn't herself for the second day in a row!
And WHY did it have to be SPIKE?

Summary: When Joyce calls Buffy to tell her that she was attacked in her own home, and that Spike is involved, Buffy thinks that she feels a staking coming on. She does not expect for her mom to tell her that it was Faith doing the attacking (even though maybe she should have expected this from Faith  the girl is a menace!) or that Spike had helped to stop her. And she really doesn't expect the truly confusing days that follow. Who knew that a Draconian Katra, a rogue Slayer in a vampire body, and a high-speed road trip could result in so much unexpected soul searching?
