I started writing fan fiction about 20 years ago.  Took a MAJOR break of around 14 years and got inspired to start writing again when I got hooked on the only show since Buffy that captured my heart, Lucifer.

I began publishing on AO3 in 2019 and reading avidly.  One morning I woke up with an idea for a short, super smutty crossover fic with Lucifer and Buffy.  I actually went into work on my day off and wrote it in about 3 hours.  

I started reading Spuffy fics on AO3 because, well, Spuffy!  

I read Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Sunalso.  Her writing far surpassed anything I'd read in the realm of Lucific.  I was hooked.  I read everything by her and her cohort in crime, Gort.  I also picked up on touchstoneaf.  Again, blown away by the talent.  

An offhand comment made by sun in reply to something I said on one of her fics led me on a search for EF...what was this mysterious EF?  I googled "Elysian Fields Buffy"  and booyah!!!  My addiction to Elysian Fields began. I thanked sun for inadvertently leading me here and she gave me a list of authors to "start with"  I quickly realized this was my new happy place and the authors on this site were far superior to most modern published works.

I am seriously overwhelmed by the way everyone supports each other and always has the most positive attitude.  

I began uploading my own Spuffy stories in 2020.  While the first few I uploaded were unbeta'd, I quickly realized the value of having 2nd and 3rd eyes to look things over and it has made a huge difference in my own stories.  I'm grateful for everyone who has ever beta read, offered suggestions and critiqued any of my stories before I hit the publish button.

I am also super thankful for the artists who create beautiful banners and spend hours perfecting an image for a story.

Since finding this place, I not only fell down the rabbit hole, I dove in so deeply and thoroughly, twisting and turning and chasing those plot bunnies and muse...uh musings that I may never find my way out, but that's ok.  I feel like I'm finally home.

Summary: Scene in Tough Love, in the training room after the Scooby meeting, in which Giles suggested they might sacrifice Dawn if the ritual had started.  Buffy had vehemently denied that as a possibility and part of her declaration included a comment where she said "I love you all."  Spike was in the room. 
In typical Spike fashion, he had to ask...
Buffy walked away and the next scene was her in the training room, angry, and punching her heavy bag.
But, instead of Giles coming in while Buffy is punching the bag, it's Spike.

Summary: When Hell-God Glorificus arrives in Sunnydale, she becomes suspicious that the Slayer knows where to find The Key. But the only keys Buffy owns are the ones to her house, her dorm and Giles' place... and maybe…  just possibly…  one to Spike's undead heart. 
 
Buffy’s track record with guys hasn’t been the best, but Spike’s steadfast support and teasing affection is slowly breaking down the walls she’s built around her own heart, one tiny chip at a time. (see what I did there?)
 
When it's revealed that the Order of Dagon monks placed the Key essence within a very human Bob Barker -- yes that Bob Barker -- Buffy and Spike must leave Sunnydale on a sacred quest to protect everyone’s favorite game-show host from the Knights of Byzantium, a god named Glory, and an intern named Ben… who apparently rents a room from the god of bad perms?
 
So, buckle up kids, I’m putting the hammer down on Season Five!
Never fear, there will still be chainmail, scabby minions, and many heroics from our heroic, uh… heroes.  But now -- new and improved, better than ever -- and if you act now with this exclusive offer for Elysian Fields members only -- benefits include the added excitement of Thanksgiving pie, demon karaoke bars, showcases filled with fabulous prizes, and maybe even a new car! 
 
But the most important thing and the true focus of this tale is our beloved Spuffy and how they work together to defeat Glorificus, save the world (again), and find true love.

Summary: As a response to a challenge by pfeifferpack in which Buffy is called out for treating Spike like trash when he's trying to show her he loves her in the best way he knows how. 
Takes place at the beginning of Dead Things as AU flashbacks. 
She is visited by God(s) who try, with various scenarios, to open her eyes and see what is right in front of her.  They try to get Buffy to see that her and Spike are better together.
There will be some VERY dark moments along the way, but we will end up HEA Spuffy because I can't abide anything else.  It will take some time to get there, but it will be worth it.  
AMAZING banner by nmcil - who was so patient waiting for me to finally put it up  Check it out.  It's literally PERFECT for this story.
