Icons: Night & Day

Title: Night & Day icons
Creator: Double Dutchess
Setting: S2, S4, S6
Rating: nothing that was not in the show (might be a tiny bit NSFW though?)

Officially the round is already over in my time zone, but I’ll cheat and post the icon set I’ve been making at the last minute anyway. I didn’t have much time, but still wanted to do something with the theme of this round, so I decided to parasitize an old vid of mine that happened to fit the theme perfectly. The set contrasts and parallels Buffy and Spike’s daytime and nighttime activities.  Continue Reading

[Fanart] I want the fire back (banner)

Title : I want the fire back

Creator : Miss Kitty

“You are full of love. You love with all your soul. It’s brighter than the fire… blinding.” – First Slayer to Buffy (season 5)

I always particularly liked the fire metaphor when it comes to Buffy and love. The way the first slayer chose to word it by saying that her love was “brighter than the fire“. When Buffy said she wanted “the fire back” in Once More, With Feeling. Spike who describes great love as something that “burns and consumes” in Seeing Red. And of course, the final scene in Chosen, in which Buffy metaphorically got the fire back, when she opens herself to (romantic) love again. I thought it was a beautiful theme regarding their relationship, so here’s a banner about it :)

Fic : Love declaration to my toothbrush (Drabble)

1. Title : Love declaration to my toothbrush

2. Author : Miss Kitty

3. Era/season/setting : Post-Chosen, could take place in the context of the comics seasons.

4. Rating : General

5. No specific warning, this is only about Buffy & Spike :-)

Author’s note : I hesitated a lot, because this is a drabble I wrote in french years ago (here’s the link if you’re interested : https://archiveofourown.org/works/10299569), and I wanted to try to write it’s equivalent in english and share it here, but I feel kinda insecure :) Please keep in mind that english isn’t my mother tongue, I apologize in advance if there is any mistake (if you wanna let me know that there’s something I can improve, in terms of wording or anything else, please feel free!). This is the first time I try to post a fanfic in this language. Also, I feel like I have to mention that I have a strange humor, and I know that humor can be different depending on the language, so I sincerely hope this fanfic will work for you, I’m curious to know :-) Thank you to anyone who will give it a chance <3

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. :)

Fic: In for a Penny [10a/?]

Title: In for a Penny [10a/?]
Authors: the_moonmoth & bewildered/bewilde
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~11,200 words this chapter (79k in total so far)
Timeline: s4-5
Warnings: Sexual situations, bad language, violence, smut. Suicidal ideation. Temporary Spike/Other and Buffy/Other.
Summary: Spike travels back in time to change the future. It goes poorly.
Notes: We’re back! Maybe? Well, we have a new chapter at least. Between Moony’s parenting woes and Bewildered’s 24/7 work schedule, things have been tough lately, but we’re trying very hard to regain some (slow) momentum. Yay! Some dialogue taken from Fear Itself, for which we cannot take credit. Many, many thanks to rahirah for a very thorough beta. And if anyone is left feeling a little lost and uncertain about our characterisation of The Tea, we would like to refer you to this important cultrual PSA regarding what British people really care about when having a brew (hint: it has nothing to do with that loose leaf bollocks). Enjoy!

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!

Setting: During an alternate* S5, after the altercation with Glory in “Blood Ties”.
Summary: Property damage has consequences.

AN: The continuing saga of Buffy’s adventures in community service. Follow this link to Chapter One. This chapter is a bit more angsty and less innuendo-y (sigh) than the last one. Unbeta’d, so please point me at any typos or other weirdness.

20 icons spuffy | round 24 night and day

Hi everybody! First of all, sorry I’m a little late, I made some icons for this round. As we all noticed, after photobucket decided to block the links on third-party sites, every corner of the fandom was affected so I was not the exception. I’m changing the links ohlord but obviously it’s affected all. You know, I’m sad for everything we lost, it’s a catastrophe of multiple proportions. I will try to change it as fast as I can, I hope you can forgive me for not being able to do it before. I’ll be around, reading your fanfic with my drama queen crown on my head.

Spreading the Light

Rating: R
Author: Sandy S.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. Joss owns all.
Summary: Buffy journeys to LA to help in the final battle at the end of “Not Fade Away.” Spike saves her life at a cost, and humans can’t be in denial about the existence of demons and vampires anymore. The world is turned upside down and scientific advancements skyrocket…literally. Far in the future, Buffy and Spike are facing another apocalypse.

(As an aside, this is sort of the story of how Spike and Buffy ended up where they did in Exquisite Consequences, a round robin of sorts on Elysian Fields, but you don’t have to read that to get this.)

Huge thank you to yellowb for betaing part one.

Written for the Sunnydale Fanfic Club July 2018 challenge, which involves stars and a football (say what?)!

A/N: Several parts for this fic are written but I have until the end of July to publish for the contest. I’ll be posting the rest then on Elysian Fields. And yeah, yeah, the title is from my own fic. I really agonized over it. (I have the hardest time with titles!)
