The Darker Side of Spike/Buffy

Despite my lack of fic lately, I am a Buffy and Angel girl at heart, as a lot of us are. And in the past few years, we as a fandom have been through a lot - cancellations, new projects, fandom wank and drama the likes of wish made me sick to my stomach.

Well no more. It's a new day, ladies and gentlemen. A day of returning home to the fandom we know and love. It's been a hard few years to be in the Jossverse, especially on LJ - I get that. And both shows have been off our screens for a spell...but that means we don't have to let them just fade away.

A few weeks ago, in a harried mess of midterm anxiety, I went about searching for the comfort of some old haunts, the sites I went to before I knew about LJ. I knew a few had closed down, but what I found was so depressing - at least 75% of the sites I know and love are dead and gone, and the ones that are still around haven't been updated in years. It bothered me, alot - this fandom is unlike anything I've ever encountered and I know I am just one person, but this fandom has given me so much. It was the least I could do to try and revive it, at least in my own small way.

So, after a lot of reflection and discussion with the lovely vamptastica and xela_fic, I have this to offer to you all. A celebration of a set of shows that showed us it was ok to love being the freaks we were, and that we weren't alone. A show that gave us somewhere to turn to when we felt the most alone, that shaped a generation of geeks everywhere.

liliaeth and I have yet another interlude of our little epic - and it hasn't been a half a year in coming, this time. Amazing. We're grateful for the reception the previous interlude received. Nice to know some folks are still reading. Please follow the Warning Alert System.

Early May - 2018
Will is nearly 14 years old
Alonna is 12 1/2


Green Alert
This follows immediately after our last post. Will runs to keep his movie date. Guess who pops in?


Please, as always, read and comment! Buffy!Muse has been given a little slack, since she's been far more cooperative as of late. We've decided to allow her any and all bribes and comforts… but the ankle chain stays until she's proven herself more trustworthy.

Feedback is always welcomed.

Goddess bless Willa, my first and foremost mentor, gillo, with her busy family and professional life and strife, for continuing to be a beta-extraordinaire, and just_sue. Though our time together has been brief lately, she's managed to keep my mind on track and cheer me ever onwards.

After much angst, pulling of hair and rending of garments thanks to certain AWOL muses, liliaeth and I finally have the latest interlude of our little epic. We're hoping it still has an audience. Please follow the Warning Alert System.

Will is nearly 14 years old

Only a day or so has passed in the lives of Will, Nina and Angel since our last chapter, though for the latter it might as well have been an eternity. Angel reluctantly agrees to do his fatherly duty. Connor listens and learns (hopefully). That's about it. Really!


Please, as always, read and comment! Buffy!Muse is back to being shackled to her little cot. Give a muse her freedom, and she vanishes for months at a time.


Feedback is always welcomed.

Goddess bless Willa, my first and foremost mentor, gillo, who, after passing out from shock, managed to deliver her usual beta magic, and just_sue, whose loving nags are just what the doctor ordered, and excellent suggestions are always welcomed.

Oy, I apologize for how incredibly long it's taking me to write this fic!
Life is complicated right now, I'm a bit overwrought, etc etc. However, I've updated!

All parts, including new chapter, of Not Dead are here.

Being undead doesn't let Buffy off her sense of responability. She and Spike head back towards home.

Read all parts of Not Dead.
