A Loss of Pride

Response to a challenge set by anon462 on Elysian Fields. Set post season finale of both AtS and BtVS. Spike has shanshued but hates it. Angel tries to help him adjust but Spike resents it. One day he is seriously injured in a fight with demons and Angel turns to the one person who he knows can help Spike recover – Buffy – how will she react to the news that Spike’s alive?



Light of My Lantern

After the events of Not Fade Away and the battle in L.A., Spike is granted humanity by the Powers that Be. The only problem is his memories are erased, and he establishes a new life with a new woman. Though Buffy decides to leave him to his happy life, she goes back to him after tragedy strikes, unsure what to do. She and Spike (known as William) establish a friendship, but after a year, Willow’s in trouble, and Buffy has to return to the Cleveland hellmouth. Buffy POV. (There is only brief mention of William/other. This is a Spike/Buffy story.) Based on a challenge by killjoy and written for challenge month in April 2020.



Adventures in Vamp-Sitting

Buffy and Spike were settled into their life together and had their routine down with their seven-month-old son. He was sleeping through the night, and Buffy and Spike had a good balance of working, spending time as a family, and assisting the Louisiana Slayer team at the slippery New Orleans hellmouth. Then, Buffy gets tapped to help investigate a bunch of dead bodies with neck wounds in the Quarter, and Spike is left to watch their son on his own. He’s done it plenty of times before. What could possibly go wrong this time?



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.
