Hey, I'm Heather!

I've been a Buffy fan since "Halloween" and started shipping these two lovable idiots during "Becoming", but truly never expected anything to come of it. I was introduced to Spuffy fanfic through Crumbling Walls and LiveJournal. I wrote my first posted fic before "Chosen" aired and wrote off and on for a few years, before taking a break from fandom. I closed up all my Buffy related websites and chilled for the next 15 years ;)

With the 25th, I felt the urge to start writing again, maybe even finish a couple of WIPs I had, and here we are. I love both Buffy and Spike separately and together. There's never been any couple better and they are my absolute OTP.  I also like to manipulate images and am determined to Spuffify whatever I can.

Hope you enjoy!

Summary: Spike returns to Sunnydale determined to prove one thing: he is absolutely, 100%, not at all, in love with the Slayer. But then he sees her again. So he decides he needs to spend as much time with her as possible.
 
Starts in season 4 and then who knows! A free-for-all, really, in drabbles (and a couple of dirty vignettes). A complete reimagining of season 4.
