Hello, all! Longtime lurker here, but longtime poster on other forums including back in the day, and AO3 these days. 

Perhaps it was the apocalyptic feel of the pandemic, but I recently launched a huge Buffy re-watch, which made me re-examine the Buffyverse through more grown-up eyes. 

I started consuming and writing Buffyfic and have multiple WIPs and a folder of ideas, though I only post once the rough draft, at least, is totally done-- so you may not much here, yet. 

Delighted to be posting Aspectus, which is cross-posted on AO3. A Spike/Buffy romance kicked off by time travel, it focuses just as much on repairing Buffy's platonic relationships and forging Spike's connections to the Scoobies as it does on the main pairing. It's a monster, at 200k+ but at least for Book One (of Four) I'll be posting fast. Hope you'll join me!
