Title: Stickshifts and Safetybelts Author: Lady Emma Era/season/setting: Indeterminate era, established relationship, road trip. Rating: NC-17 Warnings: sexual situations, light-to-medium BDSM, dom!Spike/sub!Buffy, porn utterly devoid of plot Author’s Note: Title from the song by Cake. Betaread by trevino. Includes a gorgeous and sexy banner made by scratchmeout. This is far and away the dirtiest thing I’ve ever put out for public consumption, so I hope you all enjoy it. ;)
Title: Haikus Illegal in Several States Author: thenewbuzwuzz Setting: Something Blue Rating: rated R for language, smut-adjacent crack, and illegal activities Word Count: around 500.
I’ve wanted to write this concept since 2016.
It’s a Hidden Gems Secret Santa gift for stuffnonsense, who asked for a series of interconnected haiku.
I set my string of Spuffy haiku in Something Blue, because it’s not like that has been done before, in this very community, excellently.
Many thanks to the_wiggins for awesome beta help!
Title: We Will Drive Through the Fire Author: Rebcake Rating: PG13 Word count: 3450 Genre: Domestic holiday doings Summary: It’s Thanksgiving, so Buffy and Spike pack up the kids and head to Grandpa’s.
A/N: Although it’s not necessary to read the previous stories, this is the next installment in the Ring On It ‘Verse series. It began with a small wardrobe change on the morning of the final battle of the Hellmouth, and led to an un-sought-for transformation, namely that Spike has a heartbeat. AU from Chosen. The whole series can be found here on AO3. Previous seasonal_spuffy posts are With This Ring, Under My Skin Prologue, Under My Skin, and Anniversaries Aren’t For Quitters. More A/N: This is more unbeta’d than usual, so let me know if you notice anything weird. Might meander a bit. Also: based on this year’s California Fire Trauma.
Title: Driving Till Dawn Author: PrettyPoppy Era/season/setting: Season 6, between “All the Way” and “Once More, With Feeling” Rating: G Summary: When Dawn goes missing, Spike and Buffy take a road trip to find her. Author’s Notes: This is not the spuffiest of Spuffy fics I’ve ever written, but I think there’s enough spuffiness in there to count. Dawn kind of got in the way a little, but then, doesn’t she always?
At the first empty rest stop Buffy and Spike across outside of Baton Rouge, they’d parked and made love in the car this time. He’d pushed his seat all the way back, the air conditioning cradling them in a cool breeze, and she’d eagerly climbed atop to ride him, starting with slow, tender intensity and building speed until the car was moving with them and they were both satisfied.
Buffy happily hummed along with Mariah Carey’s, “All I Want for Christmas.” She had managed to finagle control of the radio again and also managed to find another Christmas station in Louisiana. It was her way of stopping herself from dwelling on the fact that Spike was driving almost ninety miles an hour. His excuse was that he was staying with the traffic and making up for time lost on her breaks.
Somewhere just past Houston the next night, they stopped at a Waffle House. Buffy had been seeing the signs at random rest stops, and with each one they passed, her stomach became a little more adamant. She’d had a burger from Whataburger when they got back on the road that evening, but now, it was lunchtime. (Was it really called lunch if it was the middle of the night and they were having breakfast-type food?)
Summary: Buffy discovered that Spike was alive in L.A. and has been helping with the cleanup. They, of course, inevitably got back together, and now, they’re on their first road trip together. Third person POV. Set post-NFA.
A/N: Special thank you to badwolfjedi for brainstorming road trip fic ideas with me (couldn’t decide when and where to set it) and for reading over the story to make sure I didn’t do anything way off base. And this story is dedicated especially to dear swifthorse.
