Title: Spuffy Abridged Creator: Double Dutchess Era/season/setting: All of ’em! Rating: Same as the show (I guess that’s R?). Expect an overview of ALL of Spuffy, not just the highs but also including the lows. Notes: This vid was inspired by the classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer Abridged vid by Rowena. A Spuffy version seemed to fit the “Celebrating 25 Years” theme pretty well.
I’m sorry if your favourite scene hasn’t been included; it’s hard to cram 11 seasons of Spuffy into less than 2 minutes, so some sacrifices had to be made. Thumbnail clipart (film reel) is from pixabay, the rest of the credits are at the end of the vid!
AN: Set in my Camperverse, which includes “What Remains” and “Monongahela,” both of which can be found on EF and A03. Takes place during WR. If you haven’t read these other one-shots, pertinent information is that everyone except Spike and Buffy die in the fight with Glory and Spuffy leaves Sunnydale in grief.
Summary: Spike gets a Polaroid camera.
Banner by me. Unbeta’ed, so all mistakes also by me.

Wanted to work with one of my favorite of all episodes and with one of the fundamental transformations for Buffy and Spike – Joss gave us, IMO, the most dramatic and powerful seasons of the entire series. Adam Hughes is the creator of those wonderful illustrations of Buffy and Spike.
Title: Grace In This Creator: thenewbuzwuzz Rating: Like the BtVS box set, this is rated 15+ for canon-typical sex. The song is fairly sexual, though not explicit. Notes: Happy Seasonal Spuffy, folks! Can I offer you a full-length fluffy fanvid in this trying time!
Title: Truth or Dare Creator: Double Dutchess Rating: R. I’ll follow thenewbuzwuzz‘s example, and say that this should be rated 15+ for “moderate sex” because it has scenes from Dead Things in it. Actually I’m not sure I’d call it “moderate” in this case — at least not in terms of quantity. I crammed quite a lot of it into this vid :-) Other notes: Many thanks to the mods for all their hard work, and to all my fellow contributors so far. If I haven’t commented on your entry yet, I will be checking it out soon, now that I’ve posted mine.
I really like challanges and prompts, so if there’s a specific theme for something, I want to run all the way with it. Unfortunately the initial “Truth or Dare” story I came up with ended up being…several chapters long, and sorta on the very unfinished side, and so I went with this completely different (obnoxiously fluffy) one-shot instead. But I do still want to post my first thing, so, be ready for me to clog the feed around the free-for-all days!
Title: The Vampire’s Gambit Author/creator: violettapirateq Era/season/setting: Mid-Season 6 (Wrecked, specifically) Rating: PGThe book Spike reads from is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. :P
Thanks for reading! Super excited to do this for the first time!
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.”
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.
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.
