This is an entry I had planned but didn’t have time for during the last round of Seasonal Spuffy. It’s a gifset I made for my last buffyversebingo  prompt, “Surrender”.

Sunrise manips

Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Title: Sunrise manips
Setting: The first screencap is, I believe, of Spike right before he says, “So you’ll give me what I want. Make me what I was. So Buffy can get what she deserves.” But I think it looks similar to Spike in the final scene of “Intervention” too, and upon reflection I don’t mind. The second screencap is of Buffy as she’s about to say, “What you did, for me, and Dawn … that was real.”

Spike Wins the Soul in Kitten Poker: the fridge poem (and banner)

Title: Spike Wins the Soul in Kitten Poker
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Setting: “Life Serial”
Rating: G
Notes: Whoops, it’s late! I started posting this before midnight, I promise…
Major props to maryperk73703  for the irresistible prompt and to the_wiggins  for betaing this thing into the night and gifting me with a stack of thoughtful comments taller than the poem.

Well, I say poem. This feels only borderline poem-y to me, but the poetry magnets made writing simpler in some ways, and I wasn’t going to do sentences.

Fic: Almost Paradise (1/?)

Title: Almost Paradise
Author: hollydb
Era/Season/Setting: Season 6, during Life Serial
Rating: PG-13 (this chapter; whole fic will be NC-17)
Warnings: Suicidal ideation. There will be some Buffy/other in future installments, but none in this chapter.
Summary: When presented with the opportunity to magically alter the world she lives in, Buffy knows there are a lot of very good reasons why she shouldn’t seize it, but figures things can’t get worse. She’s wrong.

I blame this fic entirely upon the seasonal_spuffy  fairytales-retold theme. It was certainly not my intention to write two Season 6 fics back-to-back, but when I was looking up fairytales that I thought I could work into a plausible Spuffy story, this one leaped out at me, and Season 6 seemed the perfect launch-point. When else would Buffy be this desperate? My goal was also to write something short and sweet, but this theme begged for a longer fic, so you’re stuck with a WIP. Only posting one chapter today, and I have no idea how many are ahead. Find future installments at Elysian Fields and AO3.

Many, many thanks to OffYourBird for helping me brainstorm awfulness. And thanks to bewildered, Kimmie Winchester, Niamh, and Behind Blue Eyes for betaing, as always. Final thanks to W.W. Jacobs.

Fic: Dissonance, Part 1/3

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Dissonance

Title: Dissonance
Author: wolfshadoe
Era/season/setting: S6, between Older And Far Away – As You Were
Rating: uh… NC-17?

Notes: One-shot, complete at 8.6k, but I’ve had to split it for postability.
Beta read by the divine Micrindle23; remaining errors all mine.
I’ve been pretty stumped for words since… around the time I thought I could safely sign up for this. But finally thrashed something out just in time. Far from a fairy-tale, but here it is anyway

“Life Serial” limerick

Title: Life Serial limerick
Author: thenewbuzwuzz
Era/Season/Setting: s6
Rating: G
Notes: What would a “Fool for Love” anniversary be without any bloody awful poetry? :) To make sure we have at least a little of that, here’s a tiny little limerick (which is also the longest piece of fiction I’ve completed in the last three months, yay!).

She’s neither a shop girl nor a schoolgirl.
She’s a fighter, commander, and doer.
She’s a creature of dark,
and this demon bar
will for sure be the right place to woo her.

ETA: this is, of course, halfway found poetry, so credit to David Fury or Jane Espenson or whoever wrote “You’re not a schoolgirl. You’re not a shop girl. You’re a creature of the darkness. Like me.” – Life Serial

Further note: this post continues in the comments.

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: A Guy Can Dream

Title: 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!
