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.

Somewhere to be Flying

Spike tried to show Buffy his world by taking her to a demon bar in Life Serial. Now he tries reintroducing her to her own. A stolen moment between the episodes Life Serial and All the Way.

Let Me Count the Ways

One decision can change so much. Instead of telling Buffy that Spike is in love with her during Crush, Dawn tells her about a list. It leaves Buffy thinking about all of the ways that Spike could have used to kill them… but didn’t.

Beautiful to Me

Spike takes Buffy out to a club for her birthday, where he thinks about their time together.

Beautiful

On her birthday, Buffy contemplates herself and her relationship with Spike.

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?
