My penname, Miss Murchison, is taken from a character in Dorothy L. Sayers' classic mystery novel, "Strong Poison." Miss M is a dowdy middle-aged woman who is more than she appears to be. I can't claim her skills at safe-cracking, but it does amuse me to look around at PTA meetings and wonder if anyone else there writes vampire porn.

My real life is so normal, it's almost disturbing. It's the kind of life people have in scary movies just before the monsters attack. Job, husband, kids. I'm very boring.

Summary: To solve a mysterious string of deaths, Buffy and Spike must go where they have never gone before-undercover at a large company, where they must hunt down a murderer amid the cubicles while coping with PowerPoint Presentations and the Coffee Fund Rules.  Silly.  Complete.  (R, about 20,000 words)

Harry from Cubed won as Most Original Demon at the Fang Fetish Awards. I can't tell you how tickled I am to get this on Harry's behalf. But I know I'm not half as pleased as he would be!

Summary: It's Valentine's Day, and Spike isn't just giftless, he's clueless. Inspired by my own incompetence when it comes to shopping for presents
This is set in the same silly 'verse as Cubed, If it's Tuesday, this must be Sunnydale, and What's in a Name. Those fics were written for the Seasonal_Spuffy community on Live Journal. This was written for my Live Journal friends' list in general and for syderia in particular in enigmaticblues' 2007 Random Acts of Kindness Valentine's Day exchange. Like the other stories in this series, this can be read as a standalone.
