Raison d’Etre

Hi everyone. First of all, many thanks to the mods for keeping this community going. Secondly, apologies for hardly commenting on any one else’s posts so far. I always find it very difficult to do that when I have my own contribution sort of hanging over me. But as it’s my posting day today, that excuse won’t fly any more, and I hope to catch up with all your entries soon.

Due to various circumstances (some my fault, some not), I ended up with only two days to write this fic, so I’ve fallen back on that old staple, or a variation thereof, the post-apocalypse/final climactic battle story, plus avoided any complications (such as having to think of an actual plot) by dumping my readers in medias res and running for cover. ;)

Setting: post-series and post-apocalypse/final climactic battle
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Spike/Buffy (obvs) but mention of Spike/Drusilla and Angel/Buffy
Un-beta’ed, so please forgive (and point out so I can amend) any mistakes with my American.
Mention of character death

Ficlet: The Promise (1/1)

Life has been hectic and I almost forgot my posting day. Here’s short ficlet before I toddle off to bed. I’ll (hopefully) post a slightly longer fic later this evening after I get home from work. Still need to finish up the last little bit.

Vacation is coming up, and I’m looking forward to enjoying seasonal_spuffy. In the meantime, many thanks to the excellent gillo , lutamira and fenchurche for making that possible.

Title: The Promise (1/1)
Author: annapurna_2
Timeline: Season 5 AU
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Post-apocalyptic

The Reunion [Fanmix + Art]

Title: The Reunion
Creator: nvrbnkisst / nvrbnkisst
Form: Fanmix inluding 1 wallpaper, 4 gifs, and thoughts.

The theme ‘Time After Time’ got me thinking this round, and I knew I wanted to do something kind of AU.
So this is a fanmix + art stuff that is basically a soundtrack to some of my crazy post-chosen-head-canon/thoughts for these two crazy kids.

Last Dance

Rating: PG-R, for a little bad language
Beta: Beta’d by Dwyld on LJ, to whom many thanks.
2442 words. May be part of a longer fic one day, but I hope it stands on its own.

FIC: And Take My Waking Slow

Title: And Take My Waking Slow
Author: snickfic / snickfic
Setting: post-NFA (hence icon!)
Words: 5400 on the nose!
Rating: PG-13 (for a wee bit of language)
Genre: shanshu!Spike, post-apocalyptic, lots of hurt/comfort
Summary: The world is broken and Buffy is broken and Spike is fixed, kind of, possibly more than he ever wanted to be. He doesn’t know what to do about any of those things.

A/N: This is another fic in the post-apocalyptic universe with the Spuffy mpreg, although (as some of you will rejoice to know) this fic is a prequel and therefore has no mpreg in it. As of now, this is the earliest fic in the chronological sequence, so no prior knowledge of the ‘verse is needed, but other entries in the universe may be found here.

I meant this to be the Spike-deals-with-being-human fic, but I think that theme is going to span more than one fic. Call this the first installment, then. Enjoy. :)

FIC: And Don’t Let Go

Title: And Don’t Let Go
Author: snickfic
Setting: post-NFA
Words / Rating: 2900 words / PG
Genres: shanshu!Spike, post-apocalyptic, babyfic
Warnings: mpreg

A/N: I’ve been sporadically posting to my LJ a series of vignettes in which the NFA battle went badly, Spike’s human now, and Buffy’s just trying to hold the world together and also deal with Spike having a baby. This one is the earliest in the chronology of any I’ve posted, so you don’t need to have read the others, although if you want to they are all here. I think there may be another one for Free-For-All day.

Thanks much to my betas, bobthemole and penny_lane_42, for helping me get this into shape.

FIC: The Widening Gyre (1/1)

Good morning, all. Today is my day at seasonal_spuffy, and first I’d like to thank enigmaticblues for all of her hard work in keeping this wonderful community going. What a great round this has been so far. And now, on to the fic!

TITLE: The Widening Gyre
AUTHOR: Cindy (cindergal)

SUMMARY: A horror story. A love story. A dark fairytale.

“The Apocalypse, Buffy and Spike Style.”

And this is my second and sadly last offering for the day. Thank you for allowing me to take part! I hoped to have more but life got in the way, as usual. And god knows I’ve got enough WIPS to finish so –

Another short fic, this one more lighthearted than the last. Which is odd because it’s about the end of the world. Who knew it could be such a jovial topic?

Title: The Apocalypse, Buffy and Spike Style.
Medium: Short fic.
Rating: PG-13 some swearing.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BTVS or the associated characters. Or the apocalypse.
Summary: Buffy and Spike face the end of the world in a characteristically understated way. i.e. They bicker.  Continue Reading
