Suburban Disturbance

Happy Tenth Anniversary to seasonal_spuffy!! And many thanks to the mods for keeping the comm going. Much appreciated.

It’s my posting day today, so here’s my entry. Whi-ich has not much to do with the theme of the round, and is nothing like anything I’ve written before. Hope you enjoy.

Setting: A nebulous time, some years post-NFA and post-the release of Frozen on DVD, in a nebulous place that could be suburban London, or suburban somewhere in the US where they have colder winters than California.
Rating: PG-13/R(ish) for the occasional swear word and sexual(ish) situations.
Pairing: Spike/Buffy, very brief mention of Spike/Drusilla and Buffy/Angel
Disclaimer: Not for profit, don’t sue etc
Author’s note: Just for the record, I do not hate Kennedy. Also, in case you’re not familiar with Frozen, without spoilering you, Elsa is the heroine (or one of them) and Hans is… well, let’s say a not so popular character.

Title: Anniversaries Aren’t For Quitters
Author: Rebcake

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: Amor Fati

Sorry, I’m a bit late with my offering (as usual), but anyone who’s seen the news about the Finnish election results should understand why I turned off my computer and went to bed early last night :)

I was also hoping to write something a bit more cheery for my day, but unfortunately I didn’t have the time.

Title: Amor Fati
Word count: 2200
Rating: Mature/R
Warning: While there shouldn’t be anything actually triggery here, the fic is still pretty dark (think of “Dead Things” dark, “Seeing Red” dark).
Summary: “This is your life, William Pratt, and it’s ending one minute at a time.”

Amor Fati

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.
