My motto for these trying times: Sometimes all a girl has to hold onto is Spike's bare torso.

Summary: Why on earth, he wondered, would anyone want to get married in this church, given its claim to fame?

Summary: "Sheesh, these days a Slayer can’t even call a vampire’s soul her own.”
Set five years after the events of Chosen, and therefore four years after the events of NFA. All that happened per canon - the good, the bad, the ugly (Ginger sticks a fresh pin into her Marti Noxon voodoo doll) and, yes, even Riley Finn - has happened because I'm all about exploring where Buffy and Spike could possibly go from there (sans the singing). I borrow an idea, maybe two, from the comics but otherwise ignore them. So no space bugs, cringeworthy flying sex or Dander (that can't possibly be their portmanteau but I don't actually care enough to check).
 
Banner Note: Photo depicts the view at sunset from a residence on Fulham Palace Road in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fullham, London as taken by yours truly in November 2018. At the time I had no idea what the significance of this location would be. ;-)

Summary: Buffy wasn’t sure if she was sensing some major badness brewing or if it was merely the impending awkward of making nice with a bunch of people she hadn’t seen in two decades and who, even back in the day, had merely tolerated her because she kept saving their lives.
 
Either way, the weekend was bound to be a disaster.

Summary: "I’ve had my fat fill of real demons trying to kill me, but potentially hot young Austrian dudes dressed like demons - just point me in the right direction!"

 

Inspired by one of the best vacations my partner and I have taken so far and also by a decadently soft fleece blanket I picked up recently at Costco. Just got the old mind a wandering... (In other words, this one ain't terribly long on plot, folks! ;-)

Summary: A follow up to Class Protector that's set roughly two years later beginning Easter Weekend 2021. A glimpse into family life for Spike and Buffy, plus reconnecting with old (ahem) friends?
 
The story potentially references anything through the end of NFA.

Summary: Of course, she’d have to deal with it. She couldn’t let some sunburned tourist get eaten just because she was wearing a cute outfit and feeling full-to-bursting of bread, cheese, roast chicken and wine and just wanted to chill, have a nightcap and, if the mood hit her and opportunity presented itself, flirt shamelessly with the wait staff.
 
This is a sunny little happy anniversary fic dedicated to my dearest Cosmic Tuesdays in honor of our meeting up in person for the first time over Pride Weekend last year. Our friendship over the last 12 months has been a gift. :-)
