Just another crazy fan. I'm a beta for various writers. I dabble in writing some. Though nothing spectacular. I'm mostly known for my angst and dark fics, but occasionally I have a fun dramedy.

Summary: 2187 days. That’s how long they’d been stuck in this hell. Not that they hadn’t deserved it. They both had killed the one that they had loved more than life itself, one accidental and the other unavoidable, erasing all hope and meaning in their lives. And what was hell, but the total absence of hope?

Summary: This is a VERY dark fic. Premise: what would happen if the First Evil had the Bringers capture Buffy instead of Spike? Giles and the SiT’s have shown up a touch earlier. Spike’s trigger no longer exists. Picks up early to mid season 7 and goes AU from there.

Summary: As if her life wasn't complicated enough what with the sleeping with Spike, Riley had to suddenly reappear after his abrupt departure more than a year ago. And then she just had to run into Parker, of all people. But to really put the cherry on top, Angel showed up with some dire cryptic warning, as usual. Something about a plot to move some eggs for some mysterious unnamed but well-connected guy known only as The Doctor? To borrow Riley's vernacular, it was all turning into one big Charlie Foxtrot.

Summary: Challenge Fic: Buffy makes an accidental wish to a vengence demon that will forever change the course of not only her life, but Spike's as well. Starts off during Seeing Red and proceeds wildly AU from there.
3 Things to be included: Buffy starting out appreciating William, but ending up missing Spike; Anya/William interaction; William in a big-box bookstore a la Borders or Barnes & Noble
3 Things to not include: Anyone being mean to William (this means YOU Xander); any major character death; the Potentials (nobody needs that, least of all a transplanted Victorian poet).
Spoilers: Any and all episodes are fair game.

Summary: Since the age of five, Buffy has always thought that life couldn’t get any worse. Then it always does. She does what she has to in order to survive. Her only means of sanity and escape are her slayer fantasies in which she is a superhero who always wins the battle...eventually. She goes through life learning that for her there is no happily ever after. Will life prove her right or wrong in the end? (Follows Buffy throughout all of her life and her relationships. Spuffy tones throughout, but it takes time to get there, so it is more so in later chapters.)

Summary: Takes place 4 years after the first part of this series-Gifts-which is mid to post season 7. If you haven't read it, you will probably be a little confused at first in this part. "Of a souled one and a slayer, each line will begin: One of Slayer; the other, Champion." This is the beginning of the rest of that story.
