Hello! I'm VoronaFiernan, (please note the vowels - Vorona has 2 o's and an a, but no e's) and I write a lot.  Most of what I have written is still in first/rough draft.  While I mainly write long, sprawling stories that explore darkness and moral complexity, I occasionally enjoy lighter, more humorous stories, so I currently have a variety. 

A Slayer's Fortune is one of my lighter stories, though there is some torture (Glory) and hinting at kink.

I Will Remember Trust is full of angst and depression, with a hopeful note at the end.

The Hell You Know is very dark and sprawling, but also very much unfinished.

Seeing Black is a rewrite of Seeing Red, but with positions swapped and a more hopeful ending.  Very dark and disturbing in the middle, though. Probably my favorite of everything I've posted so far.

His Last Slayer (part of Liv's fairytale event, but will eventually be posted separately) explores Angel's narcissitic abuse in an AU where he breaks Slayers.

Sorting Shenanigans:  A fun crossover with Hogwarts.  A more serious sequel, Inkbound, is in planning.

Hostile-19:  A rewrite of Goodbye, Iowa where Dr. Angleman is more calculating and possessive of Adam.

Works in Progress (not even first chapter posted):

Untitled:  Completely different Season 7, going off canon in Seeing Red

Hellmarked:  Post-Chosen fic involving spying on Angel at Wolfram & Hart and a significant amount of time with Spuffy in hell.

Untitled Season 4 fic: Buffy is human and someone else is the Slayer.  She joins a band with Oz, Spike, and Drusilla and is roommates with Willow, so is eventually brought into the Scooby gang

Dusk challenge response, untitled:  My version will have 3 parts: Part 1 being a rewrite of Season 5 with a lot of changes to set up how it all comes to pass.

Untitled 1970s fic:  Spike helps Nikki fake her death.

Untitled fic set between Seasons 5 and 6:  Buffy's heaven is Victorian England and she is just marrying William when Willow performs the resurrection.

Untitled Time Travel fic:  Buffy goes back to fulfill conditions of the Champion's amulet to keep Spike from dying, but goes back MUCH further than expected...

Untitled Band Candy rewrite where Ethan Rayne is responsible for sending future!Spike into Giles and future!Buffy into Joyce.

There might be others I'm forgetting -- I will add them here when I know.  And of course continuing to work on The Hell You Know, Inkbound, and Hostile-19.

Summary: Written for the April Challenge Event - Response to the Tarot Cards challenge and Christmas Carol challenge.
After Buffy stands up for Tara when her family tries to take her away, Tara shows her gratitude by offering Buffy a reading from a special Tarot deck she has had in her family for generations. Buffy chooses to focus on relationships, and Tara proposes a series of three-card (Past, Present, Future) readings over the course of three days, to evaluate three separate possible relationships.  After each reading, Buffy meditates on the cards, and learns additional information, as she tries to see whether or not her relationship with Riley will succeed, or if there is a chance with Angel.  She has no idea who she will consider for the third reading, but there's an annoying vampire who keeps insulting her and standing out under her tree every night...  A mix of Tarot and A Christmas Carol leading to an unexpectedly happy new relationship.
Complete at 5 chapters.

Summary: Buffy's time in heaven wasn't just about peace and love; it was also about clarity.  Clarity about the present and about the past, including a day in L.A. she thought she remembered.  Now Angel is calling, and she doesn't know what to tell him, only that she needs to be done with him.  Now.  Only problem is, how will she get there when her driving isn't the greatest and public transportation isn't exactly "On demand"?  Asking a friend isn't an option either, not when, in order to explain her anger at Angel, she'd have to tell them about heaven.  If only there was someone who already knew about heaven that could drive her there...

Summary: What if, in Season 6, Spike and Buffy had established safe words before the bathroom confrontation?  What if Spike, instead of trying to make Buffy love him, decided to stop playing her game instead?  What if he left, and Buffy realized she wasn't ready for him to leave?  What if she decided to make him stay?  A complete redo of Seeing Red that starts right before the bathroom scene and goes off canon from there.

Summary: WHAT IF... Dawn actually recognized Halfrek as a vengeance demon when summoned to speak to the school counselor? A Dawn who has been involved in shoplifting and who knows the Harry Potter books backwards and forwards, and who, at one point, could have Summoned Sweet...  What if this Dawn decided that what Buffy really needs for her birthday is to see the core values of the people she has surrounded herself with?  An unconventional response to cawthraven's challenge Buffy Summers and the Philosopher's Stone.  Story is complete on my hard drive, but revisions are stalled.

Summary: ...and they cut the thread.
Volume Three of the Spuffy Fairytales Event!

Summary: SPIKE: Willow knew there was a chance that she'd come back wrong. So wrong that you'd have ... that she would have to get rid of what came back. And I wouldn't let her. If any part of that was Buffy, I wouldn't let her. And that's why she shut me out.
After Buffy jumps to her death in The Gift, she is in a hell dimension where she has to fight every day, but every day she loses. The fights are intolerable. Sometimes, she has to claw her way out of a coffin. Sometimes, she has to fight demons who look like people she once loved.
So, when she is newly resurrected and has to dig her way out of her grave, she thinks she is still in hell. And when Spike can hit her without his chip firing, she knows it's not the real Spike. They just want her to think that -- just like they let her think she might best any of the opponents she's faced. But she always loses, and this can't be real.
Meanwhile, Spike doesn't know why his chip isn't working, but he knows he has to protect Buffy: from demons, yes, but mostly from herself and from her so-called friends. She might attack them; they might try to send her back. He won't let them.
A reworking of Season 6 with many of the same characters and conflicts from canon interspersed with a new larger plot arc involving a Demon underground bent on punishing Spike for turning against them to work with the White Hats. A Season 6 with a Buffy straight out of hell desperate to cling to her own sense of reality. Better the hell she knows than the hell she'd experience if everything was taken away... again.
