I am in wayyyy too many fandoms at this point. This is literally my seventh fanfic related account. So, I've loved BTVS ever since I was 10 and first caught my Mom watching it. Currently, this is fandom #1 which means the fanfic obsession is currently forcing me to stay up way too long writing alternate plots to incorporate Spuffy in every way possible. Spike always fascinated me, he was such an underexplored character in my opinion. The chip honestly cheapened him, although I did love Buffy taking it out in season 7 (take that Rupert!) What really drives my passion for this fandom though is how unfinished they left everything. I mean, WHAT THE HELL SPIKE? "NO YOU DON'T BUT THANKS FOR SAYING IT, NOW GO"? NO! BUFFY SHOULD'VE BEEN LIKE, "SHUT UP. I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND. NOW KISS ME AS WE BURN!" AND THEN AFTER THAT, SPIKE'S ALL LIKE "DON'T TELL HER ANDREW! IT WON'T BE GOOD FOR HER ANDREW!" ANDREW SHOULD'VE BEEN LIKE "SOMEONE'S CHANNELING THE HAIR GEL."

 

Okay... rant over.... for now. What was I saying? Oh yeah. Unfinished business. They never really explained how it effected non potential slayers like Faith and Buffy. Speaking of Faith, I honestly realllly wanted the whole "Empty Places" thing to stick. Like, STOP FORGIVING THEM BUFFY! IT'S OKAY TO BE MAD FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME!" Faith needs an ass whooping. Then Buffy and Faith  become as close as sisters after Spike dies and Faith and Andrew are the only people she trusts....... Ah, that is my dream. I wanted a big "Fuck you" speech from Buffy and Spike together. Imagine how awesome it would've been if Spike had been there? Oh I can picture the verbal beauty now....

And there goes my weekend plans. Looks like I have a new story to work on.

So, my fics (once posted) mainly center around season 7 and post-series, because I feel that many things that happened needed to (except Tara! Kill Willow, not Tara!) because Buffy needed a severe wakeup call to actually look at Spike. Like, Guh.

Last note, I'm planning my first challenge response too!

Look out world!

Summary: After everything's said and done, she can't help but think Angelus did win. She'd won the battle, but the cracks in her relationships created by her first love grew to chasms, impossible to overcome.
 

(and she might be Angelus’s greatest masterpiece, and it is definitely all her fault)

Summary: "Her wine glass crumbled in her death grip, shards embedding themselves in her skin. Her hand bled, but the sting went unnoticed in favor of the photo that had fallen to the floor. The impossible, oh-my-go-what-the-hell, panic-inducing, gut-wrenching photo that shouldn't- couldn't exist. Buffy read the letter that had come attached with it, 'What he hid, what they covered up.' No signature. Her greatest wish and her greatest fear were confirmed-
Spike was alive, and he hadn't come for her."
After discovering Spike is alive and kept it hidden from her on top of trying to discover who she is without being THE Slayer, Buffy decides she doesn't want to be "Buffy" anymore. And the only way to get rid of Buffy is to embrace the inner darkness she's been warding off since she was called. But, by embracing her more demonic side, she runs the risk of losing her humanity- and possibly her soul. All she can feel is pain, and if accepting the gift she'd denied in the past and losing her soul were the price to NOT feel, she was more than willing to pay the price. Regardless of the consequences.

Summary: It's been two years since the Battle of L.A. and Buffy's okay-er than ever. She's settled into New York life and a totally healthy pattern of non-stop fighting and drinking to keep the memories at bay. Nightmares greet her in sleep, and pain greets her in sobriety and peace. What's left when you have no friends, no family, and you're a broken shell sick of betrayal? One hell of a Death Wish.
