Welcome!

Thank you for coming to visit! After a few years down, a revised version of Nocturnal Light is coming back online. It is work in progress as all of the stories have to be re-added, but slowly and surely, all stories previously available on Nocturnal Light will once again be published here. Note that as some stories were very long, they were broken down into several posts. Use the tag for the story to find all associated posts!

Speedway

Five years ago, William ‘Spike’ Giles left Sunnydale to pursue his dream of racing stock cars. He left behind the love of his life, Buffy Summers, who couldn’t deal with the dangers of his chosen profession. After an accident on the track, that leaves him nearly crippled, Spike returns home to heal, both old wounds and new. There, he finds Buffy again, and he realizes that he never stopped loving her. There’s two problems. One, she’s moved on with her life. Two, his need for speed still scares her. Can they get past their fear and find love again?



The Underground

Seven years after the end of Season six. Buffy and Dawn left Sunnydale after the tragedy. Spike never went back after he returned from Africa. Now Dawn has been kidnapped to force the former Slayer into participating in an annual tournament that pits demons and humans against each other. Will Spike answer the Slayers call for help? Of course, or there would be no story. But will they survive long enough to right the wrongs they’d done seven years before?



Buyer Beware

Four years have passed since a certain peroxide blond vampire was last seen in Sunnydale losing the Gem of Amara to the Slayer. Since that time the Initiative has introduced chipped vampires into a form of slavery, available to selected bidders. Weary and disillusioned, Buffy succumbs to her absent Watcher’s advice to obtain a vampire bodyguard to help her in the fight against evil.



On the Dial of Time

Post NFA. A heartbroken Buffy takes a small vacation in the English countryside to reflect on her loss and mourn a souled vampire’s passing. Joyce has other ideas and cajoles the Powers into providing a solution.
