Been a fan of Buffy since it first came out. I was a Spuffy fan the second Spike arrived on scene. I was always anti-Angel, even as a kid his red flags were just way too hard to ignore, add to that his missing-link aesthetic and I just never understood the draw. Spike, on the other hand, was funny and immediately capable of complex emotions that defied canon. I knew he had so much potential as a character. So, I started writing fan fiction in high school—but for some reason, though I love reading traditional fan fiction, I cannot write in the traditional narrative format. Instead, I write in screenplay formats, which helps me to keep my brain more organized. 

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.
