Fic: One Good Night

Title: One Good Night
Author: ajmilone
Era/season/setting: Season 6
Rating: NC-17

Buffy was having an amazing day. Well, as amazing as a day can be considering she had a shift at the DoubleMeat earlier. But this totally obnoxious customer got all up in her face and she completely shut him down. Really let him have it. And her manager had defended her! That was such an unheard of thing in the service industry, Buffy felt like she was actually valued and important. There was definitely a slight bounce to her step that night as she patrolled. With a wicked smile to herself, she realized there was one more thing to make her evening complete.

Fic(ish): How do you feel about Buffy now?

Title: How do you feel about Buffy now?
Creator: the_wiggins and Transformer
Season/Era: NA
Author’s Note: Inspired by double_dutchess‘s fic “It’s a great story, don’t“, I decided to make my own Talk to Transformer fic using a line from my Seasonal Spuffy entry “A Guy Can Dream“as a prompt. Only the bolded parts are written by me. The rest are the inventions of a text predicting AI.

Fic: Ripples on a Hellmouth – Teaser for the Sequel

Title: Teaser for the Sequel
Author: stuffandnonsense (stuffnonsense)
Era/Season/Setting: Post-Series
Rating: PG
Warning: Spike/Other (exactly as much as there was in Ripples, possibly very slightly less)

Author’s Note: This is the kicking off point for another story, but that won’t come out for a while yet (I had Covid, it slowed everything up). However, on its own it is a sequel of sorts for Ripples on a Hellmouth: re-imagining the chapter ‘Four‘ from Spike’s perspective. You may want to read Ripples (or at least ‘Four’) first, but this shouldn’t be totally unreadable if you don’t want to.

Fic (kinda): It’s a great story, don’t

Title: It’s a great story, don’t
Author: GPT-2, with some small input from Double Dutchess
Season: all over the place
Word count: 1271 words
Rating: general audiences
Warning: Buffy/Other and some suggested Spike/Other
Note: What do you get when you try to let a neural network write Spuffy fan fiction? Here you see one of many possible results. Some highlights: Spike losing his virginity while on LSD; an upsetting Buffy/Spike kiss leads to Spike’s arrest; some Riley bashing for those who like that sort of thing; and Angelus owning a comics shop.

Friendly Enemies Part 3

Parts 1 and 2 are here.

Part 3

Giles turned his gaze on Spike. “I suppose I should thank you for helping Buffy remain alive,” he said. “Although I’m extremely curious as to why you did it. What is your motivation for such unusual behavior?”

Buffy had turned to face Giles, leaving her back to Spike who once again rested one hand lightly against it.

“When I figure that out, I’ll let you know,” Spike said, eyes briefly flaring yellow. “Maybe. Maybe I’ll just decide it’s none of your business.”

Won’t make much sense without having read Chapter One and Chapter Two. :)

Fic: A Guy Can Dream

Era/season/setting: season 6
Rating: M
Author’s note: I’ve been working on an original (well, Norse-mythology inspired) novel. So I haven’t had much time for fanfic. This weird little story is what happens when I try to shift gears, I guess.
The story was a little rushed and is unbeta’d. Please let me know if you see anything that feels weird or OOC! I’m gonna edit it again before posting to other sites, so all kinds of feedback welcome. :) Oh, and the title’s the best I could think of at the moment, but I’m not really happy with it. So if anyone has any other suggestions, I’m happy to hear them!
