Breaking the Habit (Chapter One) by electric_heart

Title: Breaking the Habit
Author/creator: [personal profile] electric_heart
Era/season/setting: Season 8 Buffy Comics/Post Angel After the Fall
Rating: Teen
Pairing: Spike/Original Female Character; Buffy/Satsu; Eventually Buffy/Spike
A/N: This is my first attempt at a Buffyverse fic that is longer than a drabble in about a decade. I decided to try my hand at writing Spuffy fic again for seasonal_spuffy because I missed the characters and the fandom. “Breaking the Habit” is a story that was conceived about eleven years ago. Unfortunately, I lost every word written because back then I did not properly save or backup anything I wrote. It bummed me out that I lost hours of work, and I’ve been thinking a lot about that story since returning to the fandom. I decided to “reboot” the story and incorporated this round’s “Dark Carnival” theme in the first chapter. I’m no spring chicken, so my memory isn’t the best. I remember vaguely what the story was about, but it’s been over a decade. So, everything written is brand new. Additionally, the story is an AU of season 8 and admittedly, I will be playing fast and loose with the timelines between Buffy seasons 8-9 and Angel season 6.
I’d like to also thank my beta for this chapter, cornerofmadness. You are awesome! Any mistakes are all mine.
Disclamimer: The characters are not mine.

Fic: Bring It On Home (2 of 10)

Title: Bring It On Home
Author: fra_apples
Length: ~8.000
Setting: Comics canon, post-After The Fall
Rating: R for violence and language, eventually NC17
Summary: A few months after the whole LA-in-hell thing is done, Spike and his friend the telepathic fish have some drinks. The fish convinces the vampire to take a trip to Scotland. This story is about what happens when said vampire finally decides to face up to a certain blonde over there.
Author’s Notes: This is my first Spuffy story, so I’m a bit nervous. Also, I think it’s fair to say that I’m not an expert writer, which will probably result in a story that is too long, too wordy, and not that much polished. Still, Seasonal Spuffy has been inspiring me for a long while with this idea, so I wanted to finally give it an honest try and put something out there during one of the free-for-all days.
My outline puts it at ten chapters, and I’ve written a little over half of it already; I will eventually publish it on EF (where I’m MaggieLaFey) and AO3, as soon as I finish it. For now, if you want to give the first two chapters a try, I hope they make you smile at least half as much as they do me. :)
PS: I LOVE critiques and feedback. Especially considering that this isn’t my first language, feel free to point out anything that sounds wrong, I’ll be thankful!

Fic: Somewhere Ages and Ages Hence, Buffy/Spike, G

Somewhere Ages and Ages Hence
By Barb C
Pairing: Buffy/Spike, and Buffy and Spike
Rating: G
Summary: It’s not so much a dark mirror as a tie-in novel series that’s gone way off the rails.
Notes: This story takes place in the same universe as A Raising In The Sun et al. It’s a many-years-later followup to In A Yellow Wood and is set a month or so prior to To Lie Down With Wolves. It also contains spoilers for Season 12 of the BtVS comics.

Creator: Double Dutchess
Era: Season 12 comics
Rating: all ages
Wow, am I really the first one to post anything for today’s Free-for-All? That feels really weird, because usually I’m among the last (if not actually late).
My contribution is a follow-up to my Summer Solstice one: a visual comment on the last issue of the comics season 12, reflecting where Spuffy is at right now. If you don’t want to be spoiled for the Season 12 comics, DON’T look under the cut!!

S12 comics limerick and panel edit

Title: S12 comics limerick and edited panel
Creator: Double Dutchess
Era: Season 12 comics

Because I have been traveling, I didn’t have the opportunity to make anything substantial for this free-for-all. But inspired by the very recent comics developments, and by ‘s wonderful limericks, I tried my hand at a limerick myself. I know it’s a pretty bad one, but it’s my first, and it was made in about 5 minutes :-) I also did a very quick and simple comics panel edit. (Thanks to for providing the comics page containing this panel.)

Fic: And Be One Traveller

And Be One Traveler
by Barb C.

Rating: PG
Pairing: B/S
Synopsis: Blossom reflects.
Author’s notes: A little something extra, since I wasn’t able to finish the other one. This story does NOT take place in the same universe as “Raising In the Sun,” “Necessary Evils,” and “A Parliament of Monsters,” but in the infinitely stranger one of the BtVS comics, circa Season 10. However, it will make no sense whatsoever if you haven’t read “In A Yellow Wood,” which does take place in the aforementioned universe.

Fanart: Together

Title: Together
Creator: Stoney

Okay I got notice about this round over on Buffy Forum and have joined here to try and post, so hopefully this is going to work!  I didn’t have as long as I’d hoped to put something together so I’ve done this instead of sleeping tonight. Far better use of my time!!  It’s a full wallpaper, but I’m not sure how it’s going to appear here or if it will link properly, or even if I’ve put it in the right place. Fingers crossed. :)

Loving You (vid)

Title: Loving You
Creator: Double Dutchess
Setting: S10-11 (comics)
Rating: safe for work

My contribution for this round is a follow-up of my vid “As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)“, that I made for last year’s Spring round of Seasonal Spuffy. Unlike that one, this one has no story; basically it’s just the Happy Ever After.
Health warning: this is super schmoopy. It is so sugary sweet it will make your teeth fall out. Watch at your own risk!

Direct link: https://youtu.be/wyF36MiAgnI

Credits for the comics artwork go to Rebekah Isaacs, Megan Levens, Georges Jeanty, Steve Morris and Phil Noto. The intro with the birds is from Walt Disney’s Bambi. And the song is Loving You by Minnie Riperton.

PS: I will catch up on reading/commenting on everybody else’s contributions for this round soon, I promise!
