Comic Panels

As a Buffy comic reader, I really enjoyed season 11 and all of the wonderful Spuffy moments. Since today is a free for all day, I decided to do some screen captures of some of the season 11 Spuffy moments. Under the cut is a very large selection of panels.

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t read S11 and you want to, you should probably skip this post.

[Fic] Just To Reach You [1/6]

Title: Just To Reach You
Author: sunAlso
Rating: R (M on AO3)
Era: Post-Series
Warnings: Adult language, non-explicit sexual situations
Catnip: Established relationship
Summary: Now that the first rush of being together is over, Spike and Buffy find that they still have a lot to learn about each other.
A/N: For this fic I’m moving a few things around, so assume that AtS S5 and some of Buffy S8 occurred concurrently, except there wasn’t a Twilight arc because: no. No knowledge of the comics is needed to read this fic. The action will move from Cleveland to Spain to Gibraltar. Buffy does talk about Satsu and her sexuality, though there are no flashbacks, and hopefully I’ve altered that in a way that makes their relationship and Willow’s friendship with Buffy during that time far more believable and respectful than the comics did. Beta’d by Gort and Swifthorse. I’m hoping to have the second chapter ready to go by the end of this round and will post a link with it to this fic on AO3 and EF if you’d like to read the entire work as it’s posted.  Continue Reading

Banners and Manips

Sorry for posting so late – I have three manips – hope you like them – I had a great time working on them.  I have always loved the idea of having Buffy and Spike in the roles of Nick and Nora Charles and think that the snark they often engaged in would be a great fit for the Hammett characters.  SURE wish one of the outstanding Spuffy writers would be inspired to do a Spuffy version.

Update: Torrilin confirms that she can be reached on LJ and DW as usual, and she knows there might be (more) comments on this post. She posted on tumblr because of an issue with posting images.

Drabble: the opposite of a genderswap

Title: the opposite of a genderswap
Author: thenewbuzwuzz
Setting: AU season 4 or 5, but it doesn’t really make a difference in the text.
Rating: T for body parts.
Notes:
I suspect this isn’t, properly speaking, a drabble. It’s more like a teaser (and so am I). This is a 100-word epilogue to a set of ficlets I’m working on. The entire relevant backstory is that Spike has been stuck in a female body (as Spike does), and he’s now transforming back.
If that one line sounds like “Doomed”, that’s because it is.
Posting fic end first is not the most sensible idea I’ve ever had, but I really wanted to finish something that’s made of words. And it’s separate from the rest of the set anyway. So here we are.

Spuffy screencaps meet tumblr text posts

Title: Spuffy screencaps meet tumblr text posts

Rating: probably R for profanity. Not worksafe.
Notes: so. This isn’t the first, second, or third project that I started with the intention of posting on this round. Apparently I’m making them in reverse order. *shrugs* This is kind of a placeholder. Think of it as more time to read “In for a Penny” or something. ;)

Many thanks to for beta reading. Posted in two parts because LJ.

Here are two manips for our First Day of this round of Seasonal Spuffy.  Thank You to all the moderators for all your efforts to keep Season Spuffy going on all these years.  It’s such a wonderful Spuffy Event.  Thanks to all the participants for creating works for all the Spuffy fans to enjoy –

I Wanted to work with the theme of Fall as a symbol of the life cycle and transition.  With this in mind, I really wanted to have a new symbol for Buffy and Spike – a new ring to represent their current  relationship and a new era for love in their lives.  Instead of the Claddagh ring I imagine Spike giving Buffy a Fede Ring – perhaps one that was used by his mother.  This ring is from the period of 1850-1859 manufactured in England.  A Fede Ring is symbolic of Trust and Fidelity –  these traits fit both Spike and Buffy now and the events of their history as well as how they treat people they love.  They’ve certainly had to go through many trials to finally get to where they are now.

Falling Hard

Title: School Hard – Falling
Medium: vid
Creator: Double Dutchess

In the nick of time, a quickly thrown together School Hard vidlet, inspired by my current Twin Peaks rewatch :-)

UPDATE: I’m editing my post to add a note that I didn’t have the energy for last night when I posted this, after my struggle to (more or less) meet the School Hard weekend deadline.

NOTE: The song is “Falling” by Julee Cruise from the Twin Peaks soundtrack. It sounds both romantic and ominous and creepy. I think those last properties make it very suitable for School Hard, where (let’s be honest) Spike is creepily stalking Buffy. “Are we falling in love?” the song asks. (Yes, it’s a question, not a statement. The “are we” bit is just not very well audible in the lyrics.) The answer as I see it is no, not then and there. Not yet. Certainly not Buffy, although she’s clearly fascinated and intrigued by Spike. Spike, on the other hand, is definitely falling for her, but at this stage it’s lust and obsession he’s falling into, not love. And probably he would have vehemently denied this if he’d been asked at the time. Still, this is where it all starts — the Spuffy seed is being planted.

Your Turn

Author: readerjane
Title: Your Turn
Word count: 482
Author’s notes: “One more oldie from me for this School Hard weekend.
This story is set during the summer between seasons 5 and 6. It refers briefly to both School Hard and Lovers Walk, but sets them in the retconned universe where Dawn was born into the Summers family.”

~~~

The cigarette flared against the night sky.

“Your turn,” Dawn prompted, propping her elbow on her pillow.

Perched on the windowsill, Spike blew smoke into the night. “First time you nicked something.”

Dawn giggled quietly. “In L.A. Mom was always at Buffy’s psychiatrist’s, and I missed my dance class. We went to Walmart to get school supplies. I stuffed a New Kids on the Block CD under my shirt.”

“Got caught, did you?”

“So grounded.” His low chuckle encouraged her. “My turn. First time you smoked a cigarette.”

“At school. Bloke from the upper form dared me. I got sick. Spent the night in infirmary.”

Dawn muffled a laugh. “Did you get teased?”

“Already the butt of the class, wasn’t I? After Dru turned me, I hunted down the older students and–” he broke off, covering the pause with another drag. “Thought you were going to sleep.”

“I’m not tired yet. Your turn.”

“First time you knew Buffy was the Slayer.”

Dawn’s smile faded. “Mom thought Buffy was having delusions, but she had really changed. She was freaky strong. I caught her lifting her bed to look for a shoe.

“One night, I was taking out the garbage and this guy grabbed me. His face was so weird. It was like a nightmare. And then Buffy was there, and she stabbed him, and he dissolved. She made me promise not to tell.”

He sat smoking. Dawn wondered how many times he had been the monster in the night.

“First time you knew you were in love with Buffy.”

He was quiet so long she wondered if he was going to answer. “Caught sight of her in the Bronze. She shone like the sun.”

“Yeah, but then you wanted to kill her. When did you know?”

“You were there, Bit. We were drinking cocoa in the kitchen. Angel burst open the door. Your mum pushed you behind her and stood with her bitty bottle of holy water like she was going to hold back the forces of hell with a garden hose.” Dawn could hear his smile. “I was so busy twitting Angel I didn’t hear your sis. She had me pinned to the counter before I knew what’s what.”

“You are such a masochist. You love it when women beat you up,” Dawn teased.

“Vampire. Evil.” He lit a new cigarette from the end of the first.

The front door opened and closed quietly. Willow’s voice and the Buffybot’s filtered up the stairs.

“That’s Wills home from patrol.” Spike pinched out his smoke and swung his leg over the sill. Dawn knew he wouldn’t stay, not with the bot in the house like a lingering spirit of their dead.

“Spike,” she called softly. He paused.

“We made it through one more day.” Let him be back tomorrow.

“Hundred forty-six.” He was outlined briefly in the moonlight, and then he was gone.
