Buffy jumps off the tower and goes elsewhere

Any fics that people can think of where Buffy does jump off the tower but something else occurs like she goes into another dimension or time travels back to herself or some such. Ones like...

The Writing on the Wall (Epilogue) by Holly **an all time favourite fic**
There was no body to bury. There was no funeral. There was nothing but the three rules and the knowledge that a thousand years of torment was nothing compared to a world without her in it. Spike embarks on a journey through the Gates of Hell to rescue the one he loves, but in order to save her, he must risk losing himself.

Longer, Then Forever by Demonica Mills
What if Buffy had gone to hell when she jumped in Glory's portal?

In the Mind by WendyJane
When Buffy leaps from the tower at the end of her twentieth year of life, she expects nothing less than death. Peace. Instead she wakes up in a place where her friends believe her to be insane and a dangerous enemy wants her dead. How will she react when she finds out she wasn't the one who killed the Master? And everything she knows is a lie...

A Rose by Any other Name by Kari Mouke
Buffy is reborn after she jumps from the tower.

I've not fared well with new Spike in a wheelchair fics but I don't know many of these so fingers, toes, legs and arms all crossed.

"His Girl" by: dreamweaver, is unboubtably one of my favorite fics like this.

There is a fic I cannot for the life of me remember the name of. Plus I think Buffy may have died. But she is either resurected 300+ years into the future or gets transported there by falling through the portal. I do remember it was good even if it doesn't fit your requirements.

Future Imperfect by Cousinjean. It's on EF.

If I knew how to fix it to link directly, I would, but, alas, I am somewhat internet link challenged.

The links on this forum are really easy. All you have to do is copy the full link and paste it here and the site automatically posts it as a working link. You don't have to do anything else to it to make it work. I just copy the link from the box at the top of whatever page I'm trying to link to and paste it in the box and the forum just does the rest.

Here's the link for Future Imperfect:

My copy ends with chapter ten in 2006 so if there has ever been more I am unaware of it. It may be she stopped or she took it to livejournal and I did not discover it but I don't really know. Sorry.

Post-Gift AU.

The Devil's Gift by spikes_heart [PG-13

Pictures of You by kats_meow [NC-17] WIP

Summary: As the Slayer, Buffy Summers has helped a lot of people in her twenty years.  But there's one person she's never gotten to help:  Buffy Summers.  When she leapt into the portal that Glory forced open, any chance to help any Buffy anywhere went with her.  Or did it?
Now the lead ambassador to the Powers that Be is playing «Let's Make a Deal» with her afterlife and the leaps have only just begun.  Where will she leap to next — and will it be to heaven?  Or will the next leap be her leap back home?  (With apologies to one of my favorite shows next to Buffy and Angel, «Quantum Leap.»)

Proud Trophies Won in Foreign Fight by Baphrosia [NC-17]

Summary: Instead of sending Buffy on to her well-deserved reward, Glory's portal spits Buffy out into Spike's evil past.  Written for Seasonal Spuffy, this story is complete (there will be 20 chapters total).

Summary:  When Buffy jumped through Glory's portal, she found herself here, trapped in a pocket dimension between the universes. Now she passes her time working in the diner of a weird truck stop in a place that has no trucks and battling against her new nemesis, a broken frozen yogurt machine, as she fantasizing about rescue and looks for a way home. When someone finally does arrive, things don't exactly go as she'd imagined.

Remember When By Ashlee

And if she is- will she get her memories back of a life that she doesn't remember living?

The Buffy becomes a ghost & Buffy watches from Heaven themes:

How will she handle her own developing feelings and the prejudices of her friends when she returns?

The Sound of Her Voice
 [M] Setting: Post Season 5  WIP

A big, bright sacrifice to save the world. The death of someone who has already lived longer than expected. The surprise return in ghost form, with nothing much to do to pass the time except annoy a vamp the ghost has known for years. It's an old, familiar story.
But this isn't Los Angeles, 2003. This is Sunnydale, 2001. And the ghost is Buffy Summers.
