Summary: Post-resurrection, Buffy's found herself in a gig that pays the bills: showing up to Wolfram and Hart events as Angel's arm candy and Slayer-y intimidation. It's glamorous if not enjoyable; she just never thought she'd meet someone at one of these events.

Summary: Befriending the local demon population after recognizing that humanity can be just as vile as some of the monsters she has slayed, Buffy decides that she'll be slaying and living according to her own rules. After all, she's already died once, and Blondie did say to "live fast 'cause it won't last," and Debbie Harry isn't even a slayer.
 
With Drusilla dusted due to a mob in Prague, Spike rolls into Sunnydale looking to bag his third Slayer or be bagged by her. He's not picky, he just doesn't want to go down without a fight. But what he expects (another one of the Council's chits with a stake up her arse and fighting skills somewhere between mediocre and good) and what he finds (a bat swinging, Ramones singing hellcat) are two entirely different things.

Summary: “Why don’t you and Spike just move in together?”
“Because that would be really weird? We’re neighbors and friends, Dawn; it’s not like we’re dating.”
Buffy firmly ignored Dawn’s muttered, “You could have fooled me.”
(Buffy and Spike are neighbors, best friends, confidants. What they aren't is dating. Which is the one thing that everyone assumes they are doing.)

Summary: What happens when the Initiative chips not one but two vampires and their interest in them is less military and more pastry? Crack-fic that starts with "Pangs," works its way through every dessert-based innuendo, and affects literally everyone in a variety of smutty, calorie-filled ways, of course! Warning: you will want to have dessert on hand before you start reading; ideally, your dessert will be cherry pie with whipped cream on top.
