Formerly known spuffy luvr.

I ignored Buffy the first time around because... well, it just sounded stupid, okay?  But then, in January of 2011, I got sick... the kind of sick where all you can do is stare at the TV for weeks on end.  I caught the episode Superstar, and I was hooked!

I watched all 12 seasons (including Angel), then discovered the comics, and by June I had watched and read it all.  Multiple times.  But I was still obsessed.  What's a girl to do?

In December I accidentally discovered the world of fanfiction (why yes, I do live on a tiny rock in the middle of a vast ocean... no, really).  The rest, as they say, is history.

If you're interested, I have ~100 short ficlets over on LJ.  Follow the link above.  I also have some gen (not Spuffy-centric) fics on AO3/FF.net/LJ.  Again, follow the links above. 

I shouldn't have to do this, but due to recent issues with people taking and archiving fic without permission:  DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR ARCHIVE ANY OF MY FIC WITHOUT MY EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT.  THESE ARE MY STORIES.

Summary: A sequel to 'A Gem of a Soul', but this can be read as a standalone.  Years after the previous story ended, Buffy and Spike are having problems, like any married couple.  Will a favor owed to Halfrek make things better or worse?
