Skin: best night of my life

Cat-loving, somewhat creative, introverted person from the United States. I enjoy grape juice and crumpling tinfoil. I also love playing The Sims and writing.

In terms of the fic that I write: I do write romance sometimes, but I don't usually go beyond cuddling or "closed door" type of sex scenes. I don't really feel comfortable writing it, and I don't think anyone would want to read the IKEA erotica that would result from me attempting to write it. I also don't write extreme violence/anything really graphic for the same reason. Anyway, I also try to introduce a little humor into even the darkest stuff that I write, even if it is dark humor. But I usually don't write anything all that dark.

A few random facts about me:

Favorite Colors: Green, red, black, and purple.

Pets: Six cats, one goldfish.

Favorite Episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 4, Episode 10, "Hush". The whole thing is very surreal, and dreamlike in quality. I love how everyone stays perfectly in character, despite there being no dialog.

Summary: Set in season four, this is an attempt to answer the question: what if the Initiative didn't stop at chipping Spike, but also turned him into a woman? Would Spike change and grow from this experience? An exploration of what might happen.

Summary: Sunnydale is practically in ruins, and the human population suffers under the rule of the Master. Rupert Giles contacts the Slayer, Buffy Summers, to tell her that her help is desperately needed.
Buffy just wants to do her duty: kill the vampires. Save the humans. Move on. After all, that's really all a Slayer is meant for. She needs to kill the Master. It's her duty.
Angel wants to help the residents of Sunnydale, and he would, except there's only one of him, not to mention the fact that he spends most of his conscious hours (and some of his unconscious hours) being tortured by vampire Willow. He needs to escape, regain some of his strength, and then kill the Master. Once, it was his duty. Now? It's personal.
Spike thinks that Sunnydale would be the perfect place to set up shop, except that the established vampires don't like that idea very much, and Spike doesn't want to be the Master's lapdog. He needs a way to dispose of the Master, and hey, if he can bag another Slayer, then that's a bonus.
All three of them want something. They all need something. They're going to have to work least for a little while.

Summary: Buffy Summers is starting at a new school in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. Will she be able to navigate school drama, wacky locals, and making new friends? And what will happen when she’s paired with irritating foreign exchange student Spike on a school project? And what will happen when mysterious crimes start happening around town?
Short answer: hilarity ensues.
Cheesy high school romantic comedy turned very silly mystery.

Summary: Spike comes to the Summers' house looking for help after his escape from the Initiative, and gets a little more than he bargained for when Joyce, Dawn, and (a rather reluctant) Buffy take him in. With Joyce in full mothering mode, Dawn seeing him as her cool older "brother", and Buffy slowly coming around to the chipped vampire, things are sure to get interesting! A story about family and platonic love.

Summary: Challenge response, episode rewrite of "Pangs", wherein everyone (except Spike and Buffy) goes off and gets involved with the Angel nonsense, leaving Buffy and Spike to attempt to finish making Thanksgiving dinner (specifically the pie). Turns out Spike is actually good at baking.
Very fluffy and lighthearted.

Summary: Maggie Walsh (formerly involved with the Watcher's council in this reality) creates artificial Slayers with the science and technology that the Initiative has to offer. When Kendra died, since Buffy was still alive, Faith wasn't called. However, Walsh has found Faith, and a somewhat crazed, fresh out of hell, Angel.
Then Spike shows up in town, and well...things go downhill from there. But like, in an 'entertaining to watch' sort of way.
Oh yeah, and Mayor Wilkins does his thing, and the Initiative gets involved in that. Another train wreck, but again, entertaining to watch.
An exploration of the grey area of morality that the Initiative lives in, the possible backstory of Maggie Walsh, and...Spike and Buffy helping each other get over their exes with healthy coping strategies and friendship?
It's angsty especially at first but tries not to get too dark, and will get lighter in tone and content as it goes along. Hence the 'dramedy' genre.
