Summary:

This is the story of a boy (a 100-plus-year-old vampire) and his dog (a 15-pound Shih Tzu named Miss Sunshine).
 

And also a Slayer. Who may or may not be the sunshine destined to burn him to ashes. Or is it the dog? Or the actual sunshine? Spike’s pretty confused about that part, actually.
 

Oh well, at least he still has his faithful— albeit tiny—companion.
 

Written for the Elysian Fields Challenge Month 2023.

Summary: A year after the collapse of Sunnydale, a grieving Buffy is given the chance to go back and see it all one last time.
The catch? She can’t talk to anyone, she can’t kill anything, she can’t break anything or step on a butterfly or sneeze in the wrong place, or she risks unraveling all of time itself. There’s even a fail-safe put in place where if Buffy even comes close to changing anything, a crystal will shatter and send her hurtling back through time. 
However, the past is not always what it seems, and fate may just have a few things in store for Buffy…

Summary:

When Spike is resurrected at Wolfram & Hart by an unknown force, he’s far from happy about it.

However, when a mysterious stranger propositions him to be the new champion of the people…Spike sees it as the perfect opportunity; to die doing a bit of good in the world.

He’s already died twice and now he’s determined to make the third one stick. How hard could it be? Dying is an art he does exceptionally well, after all.
 Or does he? And how will a certain Slayer react when she finds out?

A story told in fragments.
