Author

A lifelong fan of many different television shows, but especially Buffy. Those are seven years of my life that I would never change. I won't get into the many different TV shows I love (or book series or movies) but suffice to say that if it's paranormal, or science fiction, or fantasy, I'm probably a fan. 

I'm active on social media. Nine times out of ten, I'm retweeting/liking/reblogging, etc, but I do occasionally provide updates on things. My every day Twitter handle is @starlitenovarae, while my (new) fandom specific handle is @aj_hofacre. I'd provide my LiveJournal, but sadly, I haven't used it since 2011. I'm waiting until I've finished revisions before I actively share my fics to AO3, let alone create anything new. Feel free to communicate with me on whatever platform you like that I'm available on. I'll be sure to say hi!

Summary: Written in 2002; revised March of 2007. One of my first stories. Joyce Summers has just died. Buffy's a miserable mess. Dawn's been feeling reflective. And Spike is still stung from Buffy's rejection. With everything going on in their lives right now, will Spike ever get that crumb of a chance?

It's storming outside, and Spike's just come home from work. The weather, while making Buffy laugh hysterically, does not make him giggle in the slightest. What can Buffy do to remedy that?

Summary: A new message from the author is at the beginning of the story. Hope you read it :)
 
When you're evil, you're evil, right? Not necessarily. Not in William The Bloody's case, anyway. He's still as big of a Big Bad as they come -- but keep in mind that it's always been his passion that has gotten him as far as he is now. And maybe, just maybe, if that passion were tweaked a little bit... directed toward a certain person... We could see what Spike was really capable of.
