Fic: Make Up

Title: Make Up

Author:​ Fancyflautist

Setting: post-series

Rating: PG-13

A/N: I’m already committed to posting one fic a day up until Christmas on my own journal, so I figured I’d just post this one here for the event and link it on mine instead! This is lightly inspired by an Ariana Grande song called Make Up, and also the Buffyverse Bingo prompt “Seeing Red” which I wanted to take in a different direction than just writing around the episode.

Also there’s an AO3 tag called “no beta we die like men” and I feel like that fits this situation. Please let me know any mistakes you find so I can correct ’em.

Free For All Day – Fic: All in the Family (3 of ?)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series All in the Family

Title: All in the Family

Author: spikes_heart

Era/season/setting: Buffy Season 4, Angel Season 1

Notes: A huge part of the first three chapters is borrowed from Buffy’s 4th season – Something Blue, written by Tracey Forbes. Everything you recognize is their respective writers’ property, and not mine. Interspersed, you will find my small changes, until canon is left behind (mostly).

Warning: There is the slightest bit of canon Buffy/Angel and a hint of un-reciprocated Buffy/Riley. Nothing explicit.

Rating: PG for now

Summary: What if Buffy brought back a little surprise after her encounter with Angel in I Will Remember You?

PS You suck!

Rather than wait till tomorrow, I think I’ll go ahead and post my own SS entry today. Based on a previous entry by killersnot (who is responsible for both the lovely banner and the title/prompt) here is a one-shot (I think) set between season 2 and season 3. Very AU, obviously, as Buffy and Spike never met during that summer (as popular as the idea has been for years), but this almost could have happened. No idea if anything else will grow from it, but it will be clear that it could. Unbeta’d, so if you see something, say something.

Mortal Allies Series, Season 3. Postcards From the Edge, Chapter 1: Hate You, Too (1/?)

Story Title: Postcards From the Edge. Season 3 of the Mortal Allies Series

Chapter Title: Hate You, Too

Note: You might miss a couple of ‘inside jokes’, but do not have to have read prevoius stories to follow this (at least that is my goal! If you find it too confusing, I would love to know. I tried to, through the chapter, explain in broad strokes what’s happened thus far). But if you are intrested in the previous episodes, you can find them here.

Author: Passion4Spike

Banner by: PaganBaby

Rating: PG (for series so far, for language)

Season/Setting: Season 3 after Band Candy but before Faith’s new ‘watcher’, Mrs. Post, shows up.

Summary: Yeah, Spike, the master vampire, had joked that he’d send her postcards, and he had left that one on her door before he screeched out of town, again, with Dru, again. But would the Slayer of Slayers really send the Slayer of Vampires postcards? And would she even read them, if he did? Teetering on the razor’s edge between friends and enemies, which way will they fall?

The Moon Calls My Name (1/2)

Title: The Moon Calls My Name
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Desperate to find out if Fred is still out there in the universe, Spike makes an impulsive decision to send a mystical message in a bottle. Someone else gets his message. (Set in Angel the Series, Season Five in a semi-AU universe after Illyria took over Fred’s body.)
Disclaimer: I own nothing. Joss owns all.

Author’s notes: I did weird stuff with fonts on purpose as an experiment. Apologies if it’s overly cheesy and too on the nose. It’s fanfiction, and I hope you don’t mind me indulging in a bit of playing. This is unbetaed, so any errors are my own.

Also, I wrote the first two short parts and shared them with badwolfjedi a long while ago but stopped writing it. Then, the theme of Seasonal Spuffy came up and I knew I had to finish it. Thank you to the mods for hosting another round! Your efforts are so appreciated. *hugs*

Written with lots of support from sintonia! Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments while I was plugging along on this little fic and annoying you with little tidbits and drafts.
This is dedicated to wonderful OffYourBird for her birthday. I promised her a birthday fic and then totally fell off from doing it. Happy super-duper belated birthday!

Beautiful banner by sintonia!

Fic: And Fear Finds Nothing Left to Mend, Part III (Conclusion)

And Fear Finds Nothing Left to Mend
By Barb C.

Rating: T
Setting: Post-Gift AU (Barbverse)
Pairing: Buffy/Spike
Synopsis: Knowing that the Slayer has hard decisions to make is one thing. Being the subject of one is quite another.
Author’s notes: This story takes place in the same universe as “Raising In the Sun,” “Necessary Evils,” and “A Parliament of Monsters.” It is the first story in the arc which continues in “To Lie Down With Wolves,” “Every Silver Lining Has A Touch of Gray,”, “Let Your Hearts Be Light,”, “Mea Culpa,” and “A Professional Consultation,” and concludes in “The Indefinite Article.” It’s pretty damn angsty, folks. The story includes some elements of Dark Horse comics canon, but I do very different things with them. Thanks to my incredible betas, Bewildered, slaymesoftly, trepkos, typographer, cornerofmadness, SzmattyCat, and Maevepagan. Any remaining errors are entirely my own.

Era/Season/Setting: late 1990s, early 2000s / ~ Seasons 2 -> 5 / Sunnydale, California

Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I do not have, nor have I ever been in, contact with any of the creators or producers of the television show Buffy: the Vampire Slayer, nor the films, plays, and radio broadcasts which this work is based upon: Parfumerie, The Shop Around the Corner, In the Good Old Summertime, and You’ve Got Mail. Some of the lines from these and recognizable scenes and bits of shared dialogue will be played out and paraphrased, but only in tribute and not for anyone’s profit.

Notes: Borrowed the opening scene entirely from the end of Angel’s first season episode I Will Remember You, written by David Greenwalt and Jeannine Renshaw.

Interspersed, you will find my small changes, until canon is left behind (mostly).
