I watched btvs back when it originally aired. I loved the characters, the jokes, the story. None of my friends saw the series though and my husband thought it was silly, so it became kind of a guilty pleasure for me. Back then I didn’t know anything about fan fiction, and when the series ended I more or less forgot about it for a long time.

A couple of years ago I read an article on how amazing btvs was and how it influenced later tv shows, and I realised that I was not alone in my fascination with the show. After binge watching btvs for a month I found my way to fan fiction and discovered a group of people who, like me, thought the show never really did Spikes character justice. (Bangel shippers go home!)

Since then I have realised just how addicting spuffy-fics can be, much to my surprise. (Thought I would just look around, read a few fics and lose interest...)

I was lurking for a long while, before I even started commenting. I have always loved writing, but aside from a few short stories in High School, I never really took the time to do it, and not knowing about fan fiction, I never considered writing that before. Now that I have tried to write a little, it’s like rediscovering a part of myself. I've also realised just how important the comments are, so I try to comment on everything I read, at least if I have the feeling there's a chance the authour still sees it. I'm truly amazed by the talent in this group.

In my mind the comics aren't canon. I didn't even know they existed until I joined here. I've read summaries of what happens in them, and tried reading them online, but it seems I'm forever stuck in season 8.

I generally prefer the fics that start out in canon and goes AU from there. All human is not my thing, but I have read a few of those too. I love time travel and historical fics.

When I'm not reading or writing about our favourite Sunnydale residents, I'm a single mom, working as a teacher, trying to teach teenagers around Dawn's age Litterature, English and History. I don't think I have any potential slayers in my class... but you never know thinking

I'm from Denmark, so English is not my first language.

Summary: Even with her eyes closed, Buffy would recognise this place in a second, and for a moment she wondered if she truly had ended up in a hell dimension this time. One that had doomed her to an eternity of Doublemeat Palace workdays. Buffy felt her lips moving, heard her own voice speaking, and as she opened her eyes she decided that a hell dimension definitely wasn’t ruled out just yet.
“Welcome to the Doublemeat Palace, how may I help – “ She stared into Riley’s scarred face as she completed her sentence. “– you.”
Her mom, Sunnydale, her home, Spike – There are many things Buffy misses in her life, but if she had gotten the choice to revisit a day that had already passed, this would so not be it!

Summary: Spike returns a little earlier to find his gem. The mayor decides that shooting Angel with a poison, which only Slayer blood can cure, is simply too risky for his Faith. And suddenly, Buffy finds herself locked up in a strange underground room in the company of her mortal enemy and the vampire who just broke her heart. But maybe it isn’t all bad. Maybe, this way, Angel will see that this idea about leaving for her own good is bad. Right? Spike, he just wants to get out, but if that’s out of the question, well then at least he’s going to try to have some fun!

Summary: When Buffy finds herself with the Gem of Amara she sends it to Angel. Who better to know what to do with a treasure like that, right? It certainly leaves him with...possibilities, right? 
Angel appreciates the gift. He really does. Well, not so much the visit from Spike and the torture and all. But the invulnerability, the sunlight...oh yeah, and the ability to remove whatever magic the bearer might be struggling with. This just might be the best gift anyone ever gave him.
Starts off by the end of The Harsh Light of Day and goes off canon by the end of In the Dark.

Summary: Her mom is out of the woods, her boyfriend is nice and attentive, the witches are working on some spell to confine Glory for a little while. Things should be looking up, really. But why has Riley slipped out of bed in the middle of the night? And why is Spike, of all annoying people, suddenly there, in her room, refusing to leave? And why are they suddenly stuck there together, on her bed? 
Buffy could really do with some witchy help right about now...and clothes, clothes would be of the good!
Starts out as a rewrite of Into the Woods. This should have been a oneshot, but apparently, I'm incapable of writing anything that short, so it sort of stretched into a three chapter fic.

Summary: Being resurrected is less fun than some people may think. Especially when your friends rip you out of heaven and expect you to say thanks and be happy, even though nothing feels right; even though you can't feel much of anything. When Angel calls and wants to see Buffy, she realises he might be the one person who can chase away the numbness and make her feel something - anything. Besides, maybe seeing Angel will make her stop thinking about Spike all the time.
Takes place between Flooded and Life Serial. (Don't worry, it really is Spuffyhug)
