Genre: Hurt/Comfort

Strange Land

Buffy Summers. Dutiful sister and daughter. Dedicated Slayer. Trapped on the wrong side of a dimensional portal with only a vampire she’s supposed to loathe to rely on. A vampire who shouldn’t care what happens to her, but inexplicably does. Diverges during the episode Shadow.

The Day the World Turned Day-Glo

It’s almost a year and a half since Sunnydale fell into a crater. Now retired from slaying, Buffy’s been voluntold to go to Wesley Wyndham-Price’s memorial service, where she finds a few familiar enemies. Everything’s so surreal anyway, Buffy decides she might as well just give into it and see if lunch with Drusilla and Harmony might be one of the better things she does that year. The day keeps getting weirder, but the year might just be unsurpassable by the end of it.

The comics are ignored completely and both TV series as taken as cannon. This is a not a romantic reunion fic, although there are reunions aplenty, and parts of it could be described as romantic. Spike does not speak in this story, although others speak about him quite a bit.

All titles are courtesy of X-Ray Spex songs, and all the characters and settings you've heard of before are courtesy of Mutant Enemy et al. Dylan Thomas' Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night is partially quoted. The story is entirely my own, although the original plot bunny was knightowl's challenge My Three Girls over on EF. No copyright infringement is intended. Behind_Blue_Eyes gave me a very early beta, for which I am grateful. I'm not sure the final product is recognisable from the one she read, so any remaining mistakes are entirely my own.

A Son’s Love

A spell gone wrong during Lover's Walk brings Spike's mom back to life. How will being given this second chance change his actions?

By Moonlight Held

While being tormented and stalked by Angelus, a still human Drusilla takes refuge in a sunny garden where she's struck by visions of the future.

Spike’s Worst Summer Ever

It was the best of times... No, it was the bloody pits. Spike had neve had a worst summer in his entire life and unlife, combined.

Not until next year, at least.

What Makes A Monster

After the events of Hush, Spike sees Buffy captured by the Initiative. When her friends refuse to listen to him, he decides it's up to him to rescue the Slayer. She's HIS archenemy, after all, and no one else gets to take her out.
