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.”

PS You suck!

Rather than wait till tomorrow, I think I’ll go ahead and post my own SS entry today. Based on a previous entry by killersnot (who is responsible for both the lovely banner and the title/prompt) here is a one-shot (I think) set between season 2 and season 3. Very AU, obviously, as Buffy and Spike never met during that summer (as popular as the idea has been for years), but this almost could have happened. No idea if anything else will grow from it, but it will be clear that it could. Unbeta’d, so if you see something, say something.

My day

So, it’s my day at Seasonal Spuffy and I have a short offering that  isn’t really a chapter in my current wip, but it could easily slide into  that world pretty much anywhere during the current year. Spike and  Buffy visit an unusual carnival so that he can visit with someone he  used to know.

“Tell me again why we’re going to this carnival tonight? When I’ve got annoying nerds to deal with and a class tomorrow?”

The Lines Get Blurred

It’s my day! And I have something!

Set in an AU future (perhaps following any one of my future long or short fics where Buffy and Spike are back together and living in the UK – pick one where Spike hasn’t shashued:  Home is Where They Have to Let You In, Old Friends, Everytime You Say Goodbye, or any of the short reunion fics,  etc.) in which our favorite pair are visiting in Los Angeles for some reason that I may or may not make up later. One evening they encounter Detective Decker and her unusual partner in crime solving. Crossover with Lucifer. Could be a road trip fic if you squint hard enough….

Free for all!

Ok, so, I had nothing for the last round and haven’t written a damn thing for almost 2 months. Then someone posted this amazing picture of Spike on the EF Discussion page…

It was taken from a tumblr post by JPratt. That’s all I know about it, other than it sparked an immediate need to write something about sexy Spike.

ETA: kazzy_cee has recognized the picture as one of her old manips, so someone seems to have added text to that to make a meme. Tumblr is a mystery to me, so I’ve no idea if that’s kosher or not.

So, for free for all day, I have this un-beta’d, thrown together in a hurry, probably likely to be tweaked out of all recognition at some point, little Spuffy ficlet. I’m hoping the awesome picture shows up. Otherwise, the title will make little sense….

Chapter Three of All About the Mission

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series All About the Mission

Last post to the community for now. All future chapters (as well as the two already posted here) will be available on my own DW or LJ, or on any of the archives at which I post: AO3,, Elysian Fields, and the Bloodshedverse. And, of course, when it’s completed, it will have its own page on my website: Spuffy

But, for now, here is Chapter Three of All About the Mission (sequel/part 2 of IWSHLY)  Continue Reading

All About the Mission, Chapter 1

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series All About the Mission

So, my plan was to keep working on this story and hope to have enough to begin posting on one of the free for all days at the end of the month, but I think I’ll put the first chapter up here today, and add the rest during the last free-for-all days.

It’s a sequel to/part of the verse I Would Still Have Loved You in which Buffy and Spike have been sent back (separately) to change season 5 so that Buffy doesn’t have to jump, or, if she does, that Willow does not bring her back. Her resurrection having caused the First Evil to rise and inflict much destruction on the world. They more or less willingly accept their mission, the situation having been sweetened by finding each other much earlier than expected.

This story begins as they near the end of summer and prepare for the arrival of both Dawn and Glory.

School Hard mini-season

Ok – no time to write something new, but this very short piece written waaaaay back in the day for someone (name on story, I think) is set in School Hard. It’s all I’ve got that isn’t just one scene in a much longer fic with no relation to SH. This scene stands on its own:


For Braat 44 who wanted to see a Season II attraction between Spike and Buffy.

Some Spells Have Lingering Effects…

My day is here! This little (7000+ words) fic is a somewhat smutty Spuffy interlude that follows my fic Muzzled. All you need to know about that one is that in this non-canon Sunnydale, Oz and Spike were both captured by the Initiative at the same time and bonded while in there. When Buffy gets a tour of the facility from Riley, she sees Oz (and Spike) and gets them out. Once they’ve filled Giles in on what happened to them in those labs, as well as that the Initiative is now after Buffy, he is on the phone to the Council. Willow does her My Will Be Done Spell, with similar consequences. That story ends with Oz off in Tibet to learn to control his wolf and with Spike and Buffy having less contentious relationship than in canon. This story picks up a few weeks later…

An interlude after the end of Muzzled and before Oz comes back.

Together Again – 6

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Together Again

So, free for all day and all I have is a very new Chapter Six of Together Again. This is not the last chapter; probably not even the next to last. But it’s all I’ve got by now. I’ve gone over it fairly often for something that was still being written this morning, and every time I find something – a typo, a missing word, a little teeny bit of inconsistency with what went before…. My feelings will not be hurt it you give me a poke about something. Chances are, the version that goes up on the archives, and after that, on my own website, will be in much better shape. But it is what it is. As I finish more chapters (probably no more than two, but who knows how the fight will go?), they’ll be available on my LJ under the tag for this story.

Together Again – 1 and 2

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Together Again

And I’m not quite failing miserably, although it might be close… My intended SS entry is five completed chapters in to a probably six or seven chapters. So, I’ll post what I have today (perhaps a couple of chapters now and more when I get to the land of broadband in a few hours) and hope to have those last chapters finished by the next/last free-for-all day. If that doesn’t happen, I’ll just post the link to my journal and website where those last chapters will be found when they’re completed.

To make up for it, I’ll post a link to my current wip, the theme of which really fits the theme this round as well as, if not better than, this one. Operating on the assumption that there are people reading here who may not be reading Spuffy anymore and won’t have seen it. It’s long, so no obligation to read it as a SS entry – just throwing it out there because so many people have contributed more than one, relatively short, unfinished fic. :)

So, here are the Prologue and Chapters One and Two of Together Again It takes place in some non-specific future well after the events of season eight comics and in no way related to them except for a couple of quick references to events there. I don’t think knowledge of that season is necessary as I’ve tried to provide enough information to explain the references without going into the whole plot arcs that led up to them.

If You Need a Job Done Right, Send a Slayer 5

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series When You Need a Job Done Right, Send a Slayer

The last two chapters – These may or may not be how they look by the time I put it up elsewhere, but they are where I am right now. There were a few places I felt like it could have ended. This is not one of them. LOL But it will do for now. I suppose I should resolve things with Angel, I hate to leave him alone, but that would require more time than I have today. Let’s just assume he makes friends with Anteres or something…

Thanks again to Abelina whose extra eyes kept me from making any plot dimples into actual holes. :) Obviously, I’ve tweaked after she saw things, so….

(Chapter Eight is what earned it the strong R rating – FYI)
