Fic: We Will Drive Through the Fire

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.

Fic: Black Friday (1 of 3)

Title: “Black Friday”
author/creator: bewildered
era/season/setting: s4 post-Pangs
Rating NC-17 NOTHING BUT SMUT HERE

Summary: Let’s heat those leftovers up a bit, shall we?

Sequel to “Served Cold.” Basically just smut and silliness and more smut.

Served Cold on EF & AO3

Author’s note: This fic is completely self-indulgent, just a smutty release valve for all the UST I’ve been writing and all the crappy life I’ve been living lately. I can’t say there’s no nutritional content, but it’s kind of like calling pumpkin pie a vegetable, or pretending Häagen-Dazs is a meaningful dairy serving. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Thanks to the_moonmoth & Sigyn for betaing at various points, as well as fraggleshrew, trilliumjente, zabjade, and everyone else on Chatzy who read bits and offered words of support.

Fic: Little Sister, Part 10, Buffy/Spike, T

Little Sister, Part 10
By Barb C.
Disclaimers: The usual. All belongs to Joss and Mutant Enemy, and naught to me.
Rating: PG-13
Distribution: Ask and you shall receive, I’d just like to know where it ends up.
Synopsis: A young Slayer has a job to do.
Author’s notes: This story takes place in the same universe as “Raising In the Sun,” “Necessary Evils,” and “A Parliament of Monsters.” Many thanks to betas typographer, kehf, rainkatt, deborahc, brutti_ma_buoni, and special thanks for last minute beta-ing above and beyond the call of duty to torrilin & slaymesoftly!

Please note that due to my excessive procrastinating, Part 10 has only been partially beta’d, so all errors should be considered my own. I will eventually replace this version with the final one.

Previously in “Little Sister:”

Thirty years after Buffy Summers freed the demon essence that powers all Slayers from the Shadow Men, Addie McElroy is a young Slayer out of the San Diego creche. Believing that their mixed human and demon nature means that Slayers, like souled vampires, are doomed to Hell, Addie conceives a daring plan to save her sisters’ souls. That plan involves kidnaping the granddaughter of the infamous Buffy Summers herself, and it doesn’t go well – Addie is captured by Buffy and Spike, who contact her Watcher and make arrangements to return her to the Council.

Addie’s faith in what she knows about Slayers, vampires, and rogues is shaken by her encounter with Buffy and Spike’s daughter Vicki, while Buffy fears she’s inadvertently damned the Slayer line. But it’s not until Addie’s fellow Slayer Alicia arrives to rescue her, and Buffy discovers Alicia’s true heritage, that things really hit the fan…

Under the Influence of Thanksgiving (and Vengeance Demons) – Just Like Old Times, Chapter 1

I’d like to apologize for not reviewing anything yet this round. I decided to hide from the world after the election-that-shall-not-be-named because I’m entirely too sensitive. Sad. But! I told myself I would contribute this year to Seasonal Spuffy and I really didn’t want to break that promise to myself. Again.  I actually wrote the first chapter of this early this month, and then tonight I decided to completely rewrite it, so I’m sorry for no-doubt numerous errors.  Also, this is all I’ve got so far because I’m hitting my self-imposed deadline of Thanksgiving Day.

I should probably issue some warnings for 1) overuse of commas (maybe), 2) overuse of adverbs (definitely), 3) playing fast and loose with the supernatural rules of canon, and 4) ripping lines directly from the season 4 episode Pangs, written by Jane Espenson. All that being said, I had a lot of fun writing this and I hope y’all enjoy it!

This part rated PG-13/R for coarse language and very minor sexual situations. Approx. 2500 words.

Fic: The Anniversary Gift (Chapter 1/2, R) by feliciacraft

Here is the second offering I have for you today! (The first story, “Those Three Little Words”, is posted here.)

May I present the first part of a fluffy fic, set in a happier and Spuffier AU Season 7. The second part of the story will be posted on one of the remaining free-for-all days.

Title: The Anniversary Gift (Chapter 1)
Word count: ~1400
Summary: A first Spuffy anniversary. In this chapter, Buffy attempts to write a poem as an anniversary gift for Spike. Yeeeah. :P
Setting: AU S7 without the dark S6, because it’s my story. :)
Rating: R (so far) for suggestive content.
A/N: Felicia turns her back on angst/drama for fluffy humor! *gasp* (And has Buffy suffer through writer’s block as a surrogate.) :P Context-switching between writing this goofy story and the more somber Those Three Little Words (posted just before this) has been a bipolar experience. Hopefully it turned out OK so far. Beta’d by the effulgent All4Spike.
Feedback: Won’t you please be so kind? :)

Banner

My second entry for Free Day is a Holiday Greetings banner.  Hope you have enjoyed the graphics I did this year.  This banner can be used if any of our talented Spuffy writers would like to use it for a story or if they would like to write up a little Christmas Story to go with it.

Anyone who knows me from the discussion at the various forums all these years knows why Spike has become the most important of all characters in the entire Whedonverse to me – Spike is the HOPE and FAITH for the transformation of our world.  He is all the darkness that each human carries inside of them, be it in on the surface or hidden that some don’t even know they are capable of letting out someday.  Spike went from the Good Man who felt lost and rejected and abandoned and who gave in to the temptation to find another way to live but he chose, like so many humans, without understanding what his choice would bring into his life.  He found Power and an escape, but at the price of his Good Man.

Secret Santa (Fanfic)

Title: Secret Santa

Author: EllieRose101

Season: Four

Rating: PG

Story Bio.: The Scooby Gang decide to do ‘Secret Santa’ one year, but there’s an odd number of people, so they are forced to include Spike. What wonders will unfold when he gets allocated the Slayer to please this holiday season?

Author Note: This is my first time taking part in Seasonal Spuffy, so I hope I’m doing it right. At least with the tags and things. I’m not really going with the theme, though I’m sure someone’s probably done this idea somewhere before. (Not being very used to the site, I haven’t found a way to navigate the archive very well, other than by date, so please forgive me if this is too similar, or doesn’t fit at all or whatever.)
Anyway, here goes nothing…
