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.
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.

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.
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.
Title: Spuffy screencaps meet tumblr text posts Creator: thenewbuzwuzz 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. ;)
Title: In for a Penny [8b/?] Authors: the_moonmoth & bewildered/bewilde Rating: NC-17 Length: ~8,400 words this chapter 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.
Title: In for a Penny [8a/?] Authors:the_moonmoth& bewildered/bewilde Rating: NC-17 Length: ~8,400 words this chapter 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: Since last we saw all you fine folks, we have both been horribly busy working/being ill/parenting/so on and so forth, but we were also really keen to contribute, so here is a new chapter to the story we started last round. Honestly, just posting feels like a minor victory! But we are also hoping to have chapter 9 finished by one of the later free for all days, so keep your fingers crossed for us ;) You can read previous chapters here on LJ, or AO3, or EF. 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.
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.
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.”

Here is my second banner – this scene and quotes, for me, are the essence of Buffy and Spike and their relationship in this early time period. And yet, so much of William/Spike will effect his future in Sunnydale and with his one time enemy.
