Reformed Bangel Fan. Firmly in the Spuffy camp now and forever.

When I watched Buffy initially, it was when it was still on the air and I was a teenager and all swoony over the Mysterious Brooding One. Now that I recently binge-watched the whole series again 20 years later, I have come to the obvious realization that Spike is without a doubt the only one for Buffy. 

Also, I steadfastly refuse to watch Angel. First as a teen, because I was mad that he left Buffy, and now as a much older adult, because that show and that stupid forehead is the reason Spuffy didn't get a HEA.

So most of what I know about AtS is what I've read in fanfic and some internet research (without actually watching the show.) Therefore I probably won't be including much crossover, and if there is any I highly doubt it will be at all canon-compliant. 

I love making banners and beta reading, please feel free to check out my profiles for those and reach out if you'd like me to help with either.

When Spike makes a truce with Buffy to take down Angelus, he stands by his word. After they both lose everything they care about, Spike continues to hold up his end of the truce by whisking Buffy away from Sunnydale so they can both heal. What happens along the way surprises both of them.

Summary: Re-write of the scene with Buffy and Angel during the fight with Caleb in End of Days. I loathe that whole part in the series, because it doesn't make any sense for Buffy to have reacted that way to seeing Angel. Obviously, it needed to be fixed.

The story is told in drabbles, and is also a response to Its all fluffy's  challenge
Flip randomly thought your Dictionary and choose a word randomly. Now Write at least a single scene that expresses, showcases, or out right acts out the word you have chosen.
Should post the word and its full definition at the end of the story. Naturally we can't know if you chose one at random and that's okay. If you chose to cherry pick a word then I ask that you use an obscure or seldom used word.

This is going to be a super cheesy hallmark movie type of story. You've been warned.

Summary: Sequel to Her Vampire.
A couple months have passed since the events of Her Vampire, and Buffy, Dawn, Spike and Tara are all back together, moving on from Willow's actions. Buffy has recovered from the trauma of her resurrection and is planning her wedding to Spike. She has also resumed training and patrol.

Summary: When the magic of a blue moon results in a mystical pregnancy, enemies new and old come out of the shadows to prevent a prophecy that was foretold in the Pergamum Codex. How will Buffy balance the life and responsibilities of the Slayer while also dealing with her pregnancy and realities of motherhood?
This is the fifth installment in the Her Story Series, and follows the events of Her Honeymoon. It can technically be read as a stand-alone, but I would highly recommend reading the others in the series first, or you'll miss out on key story elements.

Starts at the end of Season 5, and goes AU pretty quickly. Some plotlines are canon-compliant (or canon-adjacent) but the main storyline is all mine.  Goes Spuffy pretty darn quickly, because Spuffy Forever, amiright?

Summary: A challenge response in which we see William/Spike's poetry written throughout both his life and unlife. 


William wrote poetry, but surely he didn't stop just because he was turned!
I'd like to see a fic telling the story of Spike's life through his poetry. 
You can add actual action and dialogue if you want, but the core of the fic has to be the poetry Spike writes throughout his very long existence. Since Spike was known to be a Bloody Awful Poet, the poems doesn't have to be very good, as long as they're fun and passionate.
Must  including poetry about:
  • His very first poem (because wee William surely wrote poetry)
  • Poor attempts at poetry for Cecily. (Bonus points if even more cringy than the one from Canon)
  • Being turned and waking up in a coffin
  • Enjoying bloodshed and fighting. (The bloodier the better)
  • Hating Angelus
  • His fights with the two Slayers he killed
  • Buffy (when he wanted to kill her)
  • Being chipped
  • Falling in love with Buffy
  • Buffy dying
  • Getting a soul

Summary: This is a response to a challenge from mcgnagallsarmy
This is a challenge for all the Swifties here! It's a pretty simple one: write a story based on/inspired by one of Taylor Swift's songs.
It doesn't have to be an actual song fic, just something inspired by her music.
You can chose any song you want, but in case anyone needs inspo

This story takes place post-series finale of BtVS/5th season of AtS, and follows Buffy (and Spike) as they make their way back to each other through a compilation of drabble style chapters inspired by Taylor Swift's The Tortured Poets Department.

Summary: An episode rewrite of Tabula Rasa, after learning that she had pulled Buffy from Heaven back to the Hellmouth, Willow decides to cast a spell to help her friend find happiness. When she finds out what... or who will make Buffy happy, how will she handle it? Will Buffy finally get what who she wants?
 
This fic is a response to this challenge by EllieRose101: 
Instead of Willow doing her memory spell from Tabula Rasa, she instead uses magic to find out what (or who) would make Buffy happy. 
...
Spike. It's Spike. 
But what does Willow do with the information? Try and play matchmaker? Attempt to talk to her friend? Or Spike? 
Things might get worse before they get better, but this fic must have a HEA.
