Title: We Will Drive Through the Fire
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 3450
Genre: Domestic holiday doings
Summary: It’s Thanksgiving, so Buffy and Spike pack up the kids and head to Grandpa’s.

A/N: Although it’s not necessary to read the previous stories, this is the next installment in the Ring On It ‘Verse series. It began with a small wardrobe change on the morning of the final battle of the Hellmouth, and led to an un-sought-for transformation, namely that Spike has a heartbeat. AU from Chosen. The whole series can be found here on AO3. Previous seasonal_spuffy posts are With This Ring, Under My Skin Prologue, Under My Skin, and Anniversaries Aren’t For Quitters.
More A/N: This is more unbeta’d than usual, so let me know if you notice anything weird. Might meander a bit. Also: based on this year’s California Fire Trauma.

The Couple that RoadTrips Together (7/7)

This entry is part 7 of 7 of the story The Couple that RoadTrips Together

Part 7

At the first empty rest stop Buffy and Spike across outside of Baton Rouge, they’d parked and made love in the car this time. He’d pushed his seat all the way back, the air conditioning cradling them in a cool breeze, and she’d eagerly climbed atop to ride him, starting with slow, tender intensity and building speed until the car was moving with them and they were both satisfied.

The Couple that RoadTrips Together (5/7)

This entry is part 5 of 7 of the story The Couple that RoadTrips Together

Part 5

Buffy happily hummed along with Mariah Carey’s, “All I Want for Christmas.” She had managed to finagle control of the radio again and also managed to find another Christmas station in Louisiana. It was her way of stopping herself from dwelling on the fact that Spike was driving almost ninety miles an hour. His excuse was that he was staying with the traffic and making up for time lost on her breaks.

The Couple that RoadTrips Together (4/7)

This entry is part 4 of 7 of the story The Couple that RoadTrips Together

Part 4

Somewhere just past Houston the next night, they stopped at a Waffle House. Buffy had been seeing the signs at random rest stops, and with each one they passed, her stomach became a little more adamant. She’d had a burger from Whataburger when they got back on the road that evening, but now, it was lunchtime. (Was it really called lunch if it was the middle of the night and they were having breakfast-type food?)

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?

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….

Hi everybody! I absolutely loved your theme for this round, one of my favorite topics in a fic, not too much in the way of angst, usually somewhere in the future, a place where I can find rest. Of course, I can’t write anything lately but I have thousands of scenes thanks to you. This was a clear case of love, you are the perfect partner for this long road trip.

Moodboard / Aesthetic inspired by “Tales From a New Body” by OffYourBird

title: Moodboard / Aesthetic for “Tales From a New Body
creator:
era: post-series
rating: moodboard is based on fic which is rated “NC-17”, but nothing explicit shown

Creator Notes: For Fall Equinox Free-for-All Seasonal Spuffy. What can I say as this story as an avid Spuffy fanfic reader? Maybe that I didn’t know what to expect about a reincarnation/transmigration story, but that it blew any expectations I did have out of the water.  The themes (family, love, reunions, who we really are, etc.) are deep and resonate all the way through the story and there are some Spike bite scenes (which are very much my jam).  My first official comment on the story started like this: Okay just starting this and it’s SOOOOOOOOOO INTERESTING!! Wow I was really curious how much of Buffy was going to be Buffy ya know and I have to say I thought the balance you struck here was sublime. Color me intrigued!!”, and now I ramble praise at OffYourBird whenever I can and I encourage any Spuffy fan to read – you will NOT be disappointed.
