I took a long break from writing after the series ended. The last episode was a pretty big blow and Spuffy fans totally got stiffed—as if Seeing Red wasn’t a big enough slap in the face. So, for a long time, I was done. Recently got back into writing fan fiction on my own then I stumbled across this site and after being inspired by the truly great writing here, I decided to get back into it after 20 years! 

What you’ll see from me is an effort to come up with creative alternatives to the stories we were provided. I like to show what Spuffy could have been. I hope that my stories provide the unexpected and a bit of fun, even when I’m tackling controversial subjects.

Summary: He was dead. She saw him burn up. She saw him swallowed by the ground as everything around them collapsed. Now, here he is in front of her. Not only is he in front of her, solid, speaking, and completely naked--he's also clearly not burning to a crisp under the very bright sun.

Summary: Buffy had no intentions of getting involved with another vampire ever again after Angel. No--she had plans for a nice, normal future (sorta) and maybe even a nice, normal boyfriend--who knows? At least those were her intentions, until the Watchers' Council sent a new soulful vampire to help out around town. Things change, right? Problem is, not everyone likes change.

Summary: With the Gem of Amara in hand, Spike is going to Sunnydale. Fighting the slayers before was a rush, but this time he is going to take a page from his grandsire and enjoy the hunt a bit more. What greater fun could he have than getting to know these new slayers by infiltrating their high school and convincing them that he was a new, innocent, ordinary student. This might get his mind off his recent break-up with Drusilla. It’d take a bit of magic and flare, but he's going to have good time if it kills him.
