If Spike had ever managed to write decent poetry, he might have written this sonnet for Buffy on seeing her in "AfterLife".  (Note how I assume I can write decent poetry *g*)  Rated G.

Bubblewrap

1969 words

Sit 'n' Spin

"That was weird.  And wonderful."

765 words

 

You know, despite its reputation, there are a lot of things in the Kama Sutra that just plain look and sound silly.  So when PreBuffy asked me to do a story that used one of the moves, I didn't think I could pull it off without snickers.  Its just a short little PWP, but I think I might have done it.  Rated NC-17, because you don't want children trying these things...

He closed his eyes, though whether it was in submission or trust she couldn't tell.

1965 words

 

The episode is "Chosen". Spike's contemplating the amulet, Buffy's deep in thought out on the porch. She comes down into the basement a second time to see him, and we - fade to black? That's just not right. Here's how I think it should have gone. Rated R for adult situations.

A response to a challenge from tastylilgifty, for ladyoneill's S/B ficathon.  Her request was Season 7, a little schmoop, a real connection, and comedy.  That's actually a lot harder than it sounds.  I mean comedy? In Season 7?  Rated PG.

Pursuit *WIP*

Her head drove forward suddenly, crushing her mouth against his before he could strike.

 

What if back in Season Two, Buffy were a bit more impatient, and a bit more willing to give in to the darkness at the source of Slayer power?  Rated NC-17.
