I just love to write and read all about Spuffy!

I'm a long-time fan but a short-time fic writer for this fandom, so I'm really excited for the opportunity to be part of a community like this where I can learn from other writers, share my own work, and bond with other readers too! Writing has always been my first love, starting as far back as when I was a toddler mashing on the keys of my dad's word processor to type out pages of nonsense letters that looked like pages in books I had seen. For a long time, it was a personal and private endeavor I kept to myself, but having people to share it with, great source material like BTVS, and its wonderfully complex and compelling characters to set the stage with, I'm ready to take the plunge into sharing it!

I love meeting new people, especially other writers and readers, so you're always welcome here to reach out for a chat or even incomprehensible excited rambles! 

Thanks ever so for welcoming me into the fold; I hope to make you all proud! x. -Lydia

Summary: “Buffy. Hi, it’s Wesley. Wesley Wyndam-Pryce.”
“I recognized the voice,” she found herself saying dumbly, and it made him laugh.
“Yes, quite. Listen, I apologize for calling so late—or, early, I suppose—but there’s something that I feel I need to tell you, and it can’t wait.”
Leaning up against the pillows, she had let out a sigh of exasperation. “Wes, we just brought the world back from the brink a few weeks ago. I’m still healing up, the gang is scattered, and we…we lost…”
“I know,” he interrupted, though not unkindly. “But that’s the thing—it’s about Spike.”
Buffy’s jaw dropped, like in all those stupid movies, but she couldn’t bring herself to make a sound. Her entire body felt frozen, except for her hands, which trembled so fiercely that the phone almost slipped from her grasp. “Wh-what?”
“Spike is alive, Buffy. Er, well, it’s tremendously complicated, but he’s…here. At Wolfram & Hart."

Summary: On a scale of 1-10, Buffy’s idea for her Halloween costume this year probably fell on a precarious 5. It could be great, doing everything she hoped and more for both she and Spike. On the other hand, it could easily fall down the wrong side of the slippery slope into majorly bad, rehashing things best left demolished in the past. Also, recycling ideas was not the best look. But, if it worked the way she envisioned, with a hope and a prayer…it would eclipse that concern.
Buffy dresses up in 1870s fashion for Halloween and a whole lot of love ensues.

Summary: You deserve this, Buffy thought to herself. You deserve to feel every second of this guilt because it’s your fault.
Spike was suffering, truly suffering, as he grappled with his newly-won soul, and it was killing her a piece at a time to watch.
And god help her, she loved him.
