Fic: The Silence in Between

Author: smells_corrupt
Title: The Silence in Between
Rating: Hard R. About one-third of this is sex.
Length: ~3400 words
Setting: About a year after NFA
Summary: They are cursed. Doomed to repeat the same patterns, over and over and over again.
Notes: The premise of this story is idea that a reunited Buffy and Spike end up falling into a relationship that’s remarkably similar to their S6 relationship, but not quite as unhealthy. The story takes place on two separate days, six months apart, but the events are cut together into one narrative. It’s pretty clear when the switches happen. Italics are used.

Mix: Hey Baby, Won’t You Take a Chance?

Hi! My posting day has technically been over for an hour and forty-six minutes. I wrote my posting date down wrong, and thought I was supposed to be posting on the seventeenth, not the sixteenth. My fic isn’t quite post-ready (I was planning on polishing it up in the morning and posting in the evening) so I’m going to wait for free-for-all day. But I have a fanmix ready to go now, so I hope lirazel will forgive me for encroaching on her day :-/ I am so sorry for the mix-up!

Thanks to the mods for keeping it up and running, and for providing an opportunity for lurkers like myself to contribute without having a slot!
