Returning to BTVS many (many) years later thanks to some down time and a need to unplug a bit from the world. Though writing (and reading) Spuffy-related things is new. But it's been a great way to reconnect with characters I grew up with, and discover some amazing works by talented writers.

Summary: No, she hadn’t lost her mind. Because the reasons that made Spike the actual worst also made him the right one for the job.

Summary: Buffy Summers is a ruthless food critic with a smart mouth and a serious sweet tooth. Summers Sweets & Savories has been a Sunnydale staple for nearly four decades, with her mother as the town's current reigning queen of sugar. When an unexpected health issue leaves Joyce sidelined, Buffy is tasked with taking over. She decides to hire out the job, leaving the business of baking to a professional. Spike is a self-trained celebrity chef with a talent for working dough (and her last nerve). He's also her best shot at keeping her family's legacy intact.

Summary: There's trouble brewing in Big Sky Country, and it calls for help from the original Chosen One and current General of Slayer, Inc. Buffy travels to the picturesque town of Bozeman, MT to assist a slayer contingent, and discovers a highly organized crime syndicate terrorizing the tourists, with plenty of muscle and a pesky aversion to sunlight. And it's there, she finds--much to her surprise--a familiar face also working the case, very much alive (though thankfully not on fire).

Summary: Two strangers take a chance on a dating app designed for 'no frills casual hookups', leading to a less than stellar encounter. The one-night stand quickly spirals into a different situation when the so-called 'Storm of the Century' effectively traps the pair together in the same New York apartment. Forced co-habitation after the world's most awkward night becomes an exercise in restraint, as the two attempt to play nice and discover an online connection and meaningless hookup might actually lead to something more.
