Fic: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 5

This is the last chapter! Please do read Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 before starting this one. I’ll also put the whole thing up on AO3 on (probably) Monday.

In Ripples on a Hellmouth, Buffy went back in time seven times to fix her past and stop the world from ending. Each trip back showed her a different ‘present’, until by the end she barely recognised it. But she still ended up with almost everything she’d ever hoped for in a happily ever after.

At least part of that was because of Spike. Just … not the same Spike she found herself married to in 2023. It was a different version of Spike – one who Buffy met in passing in one of her intermediate futures – who made just the one time jump, back seven years in time-travelling-Buffy’s timeline to when Buffy’s husband died.

This is his story.

For those of you who are still staying with me … please do read Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 before starting this one. This story will be posted in its entirety in Seasonal Spuffy before going anywhere else.

Fic: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 2

For those of you that remember, I had intended to start posting this story back in May, but due to catching Covid, I was delayed. So I only ended up posting the first chapter, which could sort of stand alone as-was. I have since caught up with my writing, so am now launching the rest of the story, starting with Chapter 2! You can either read Chapter 1 as originally posted in seasonal_spuffy here, or the (slightly) updated version on AO3 here. I do recommend reading it somewhere, because chapter 2 does follow on directly.

Warnings: There is some Spike/Other in this chapter, but it’s brief and is not carried over at all into the rest of the story.

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: Ripples on a Hellmouth (1 of 2)

Apologies for what probably seems like a horrendous crossover with teragramm, but I really am posting everything after midnight my time!

I wanted to write something original for round 25 of seasonal_spuffy, but I’ve also just finished a brand new, never-been-published story. So I decided to post both. Time travel is a kind of road trip, right?
