One Step Away banner and icon

So, I was going to make this thing for this round of Seasonal Spuffy, and then I didn’t make it. I started preparations, but a couple of months ago all progress halted because of NO TIME. So, I’ll be aiming for the (hopefully) upcoming Spring round instead.

Anyway, I still wanted to make at least some contribution to the current round, and this is all I could come up with. At least it’s within the theme!

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: True Blue

Rating: NC-17
Length: ~3,000 words

Thanks to the_moonmoth for her thorough and thoughtful beta! You can thank her for the very important Rope Continuity.

Also, thanks to teragramm for the sweet new icon (swiped from her post today)!  Continue Reading

Fic: In For A Penny [2a/?]

Rating: NC-17 (eventually)
Length: ~5,600 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: see Chapter 1 for author’s notes, disclaimers, etc.
Translation notes for the Americans: Smarties are a different type of candy in the UK than in the US. They’re kind of like M&M’s and, more importantly, actually taste good. Traditionally, Smarties come in a cardboard tube with a little plastic cap, and their advertising tag line is “Only Smarties Have the Answer,” which is a little joke Moony is having with herself, because one of her pet theories is that Harmony is actually 100% right about everything she says about Spike.

Fic: In For A Penny [1/?]

This entry is part 1 of 14 of the story In for a Penny

Title: In for a Penny [1/?]
Authors: the_moonmoth & bewildered/bewilde
Rating: NC-17 (eventually)
Length: ~1,000 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.

Moony’s Notes: So a couple of months ago I texted bewildered with a plot bunny, hoping vaguely that she might write it for me. She said, no no, I should write it for her. But both of us were too busy and it was very sad. So then I said, let’s do it together! Sometimes, I have good ideas :) Honestly, the original bunny was for a one-shot smutlet, but I guess this one caught ficomatosis (get it? *snerk*) because, oh look, we’re closing in on 30k and only just getting started! This whole process has been so much fun, with much more to come :D Enjoy!
Bewildered’s Notes: Real Life has been keeping me from writing for a while, so when the_moonmoth texted me an idea for a collaborative fic, I was reluctant to take on the commitment… for about two seconds. Writing this fic has been so, so delicious — and it’s only getting better as we go along. You ain’t seen nothing yet, folks.
Standard disclaimer: Quotes, references and allusions are scattered liberally throughout this story. We own nothing but our naughty, naughty imaginations.

With many thanks and much appreciation to javajunkie247  for the beautiful banner.

Title: Between Hell and a Heartbeat (working title)
Author: Baphrosia
Rating: PG13 (for now)
Setting: S4 AU from “The Harsh Light of Day”
Word Count: 2600
Summary:  Buffy finds Spike before he manages to acquire the Gem of Amara.  Things don’t quite work out as either of them would’ve liked.

A/N:  Real life continues to be ridiculously needy, which means that rather than only posting a fic after I’m done writing it (as is my personal habit), what I have for you today is the beginning of an unbeta’ed WIP.  I hope you’ll enjoy anyway.  Continue Reading
