I absolutely loved Buffy in my teens, but Season 7 made me fall out of love with it a bit. Then I got hooked on a different fandom and life got in the way and I sort of forgot it existed scared

I rediscovered my love for all things Buffy when I binge-watched the first six seasons when I was ill at the beginning of the year (I could still quote a disturbing amount considering that I hadn't even thought about Buffy in over a decade) and remembered how much I loved shipping Spuffy, which is obviously done very poorly in canon. 

So I switched fandoms and somehow I found my way here and haven't left  readheartsbiggrin

 

Lately, can often be found on the Hidden Gems discord chat and occasionally rambling about Spuffy on the forum. Anyone is welcome to pop over and join the fun (or lurk or even stand about).

If you are curious about the fruit ratings in some of my fics, which originated in one of the crazier conversations I have ever been a part of, you can find a detailed explanation here

Summary: Willow's resurrection spell didn't go to plan. The biker demons interrupted the ritual, which allowed the PTB to hijack the spell and bring Buffy back from a different death. A more confident Buffy who is no longer quite so determined to spare her friends' feelings...
