‘Some knowledge and some song and some beauty must be kept for those days before the world again plunges into darkness.’ – Marion Zimmer Bradley.
A prophecy. A choice. A martyred vampire, and the Slayer who loves him.
While her nights are occupied fighting evil, her dreams are haunted by a devastatingly sexy, not to mention thoroughly evil vampire. The sort of vampire that embodies the definition of forbidden fruit; the sort of vampire Buffy can only have in fantasy. But how thin is the line between dreams and reality? More importantly: how thin does she want it to be?
AU, Season 2 post When She Was Bad. A prophecy unfolds just as a new Slayer arrives in Sunnydale. A cocky, British, platinum blonde Slayer with a devilish smile and a body to die for. And Buffy doesn’t know what surprises her more—the fact that he’s male, or the animal attraction that festers between them almost from the beginning.
Jilted with mingled feelings for the Slayer post the Will Be Done spell, Spike declares his feud with the Scoobies a Pax Romana for the holidays, and naturally ends up with a handful.
Book II of the Yellow Brick Road series. While trying to cope with mixed feelings and brewing hostility, the Slayer discovers the truth behind Faith’s deception and attempts to deal with her suspicion about the other Slayer’s seemingly close relationship with Angel. Conspiracies arise and explanations unfold, and when things just can’t get any more confusing, a blonde vampire she was sure she would never see again decides that it’s time.
Book I of the Yellow Brick Road series. An alternate version of Season 3’s Helpless, in which the Council locks a drugged and powerless Buffy in with a certain bleached-blond vampire who already has two Slayers under his belt.
Buffy is broken, and Spike is determined to again make her whole by giving her what she needs most: an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on, and, most importantly, someone who understands.
Buffy and Spike share a drunken night then decide to marry after Buffy finds out she is pregnant. They don’t love each other. They barely know each other. But they marry under the agreement to divorce one year and one month after Buffy gives birth in order to keep Buffy and the child away from Buffy’s abusive parents.
