Even after all these years, this show still has a special place in my heart.

I've been writing for a long time now. I watched the show when it was on air, started reading fanfic around season 6 and started writing my own a year or so after season 7 ended. It wasn't until 2009 that I felt my writing was decent enough to even attempt to post on this site, but once I started this was home and I didn't bother posting to any other sites.

All my older stories are in the present tense. Anything written 2017 or later is in the past tense. My newer stories have banners, the older ones don't.

I also write YA and NA PNR and Urban Fantasy books under the pen name Lauryn April, and, I doodle a bit. You can find me on Instagram @lampblackandbone.

Summary: Spike survives the battle in Chosen and tries to find his place in the world post-Sunnydale along with Buffy and her friends. When the battle’s done and Sunnydale is effectively wiped off the map, Buffy and the gang go to LA to regroup. As they plan for what comes next it becomes clear that someone else has plans for them putting Spike at risk of losing his soul, and just what would he do without it? How would Buffy react if he lost his soul? With a little help from Angel and the Fang Gang they just might overcome all odds.
[Note: This is definitely a Spuffy-centric fic, but you’ll also see some A/C, F/R, and I plan to break up W/K. There’s a strong X/D friendship that might grow into something more – I’m gonna feel that one out as I go. If you enjoyed the Spike/Angel banter in Angel S5, there’ll be plenty of that too, and a few fun cameos. This is gonna be epic.]
