Title: The Couple that Road Trips Together

Rating: PG-13 for language and some violence

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.

Fic: Ripples on a Hellmouth (1 of 2)

Apologies for what probably seems like a horrendous crossover with teragramm, but I really am posting everything after midnight my time!

I wanted to write something original for round 25 of seasonal_spuffy, but I’ve also just finished a brand new, never-been-published story. So I decided to post both. Time travel is a kind of road trip, right?

Entry 3 of 3 Moodboard / Aesthetic inspired by “Rules of the Road” by Gort

title: Moodboard / Aesthetic inspired by “Rules of the Road” by Gort
creator: badwolfjedi
era: btvs s5
rating: other for moodboard (fic is rated “R”)

Creator Notes: When I saw the theme of this round was going to be Road Trip – I HAD to do a couple moodboard/aesthetic/story boards and this story came to mind.  It is a wonderful Season 5 story by the lovely and uber talented Gort and is worth reading again and again, even as a permanent WIP, as the place it leaves off is kinda like a starting point for us readers to imagine what happens next.  The author put as “you can imagine a Spuffy roadtrip that goes on forever!” – and that sounds pretty great, right? So please read and comment if you like (while respecting the author’s permanent WIP status of this fic).

Title: Mood Board inspired by “Come Go with Me” by Sandy_S

form: other art
era: btvs s7
rating: other for moodboard (fic is rated “R”)

Creator Notes: Did you ever want to see some more alone time for Spuffy in Season 7? Well, I sure did. One of the reasons I love this fic by the amazing Sandy_S, we see some real discussion and lovely quiet moments away from the house full of people who recently threw Buffy out.

Summary: Set just after Spike and Buffy fall asleep together in “Touched.” Spike wakes up first. What follows is AU. February 20, 2005 Link:

Editable World Map of Spuffy Fic Recs

Title: Editable World Map of Spuffy Fic Recs
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Notes: I wanted to make a playground for something collaborative, but I’m bored with online magnetic poetry kits – though I would play if someone else made a kit. ;)
So, instead, I lifted the format off of something unrelated to recs that OffYourBird did in the Elysian Fields Facebook group, and I mapped the settings of some Spuffy fic I have recced in the past. For example, “One Gazelle in All the World” by baphrosia takes place in the Serengeti, so I stuck a pin in Serengeti National Park and put the fic title and author in the description.
So. Theoretically, one could use the map to find fic recs based on setting. Travel the world with Spuffy, so to speak. :)

Happy and Romantic Season 6 Banners

Title: Happy and Romantic Season 6 Banners
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Notes: It’s already Sunday where I live, so it’s our second free-for-all day, and I’m here with my artistic vision of season 6 as a kitten cuddle pile! Okay, that’s only the second banner. The first is romantic but not happy.
Both banners are based on the lyrics of “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic, and mayybe I wanted to try song-inspired artwork because of that cool challenge on BuffyForums.
This is banner number three and four that I have ever made in my life. I’m having a ton of fun figuring out how you even edit an image. *g* Concrit would be welcome!

The Lines Get Blurred

It’s my day! And I have something!

Set in an AU future (perhaps following any one of my future long or short fics where Buffy and Spike are back together and living in the UK – pick one where Spike hasn’t shashued:  Home is Where They Have to Let You In, Old Friends, Everytime You Say Goodbye, or any of the short reunion fics,  etc.) in which our favorite pair are visiting in Los Angeles for some reason that I may or may not make up later. One evening they encounter Detective Decker and her unusual partner in crime solving. Crossover with Lucifer. Could be a road trip fic if you squint hard enough….
