Runner Up for Best New Author in round 30 of the SunnyD Awards.
Update 08/2018: I have started writing again after two years out of the fandom. My new stories can be found on AO3, EF, Bloodshedverse, and FF.net.
Post-Season 5, an alternate reality take on Season 6, but not so crazy-alternate that anyone's unrecognisable. Starts with strong Spike and Dawn friendship, and builds from there. Just lots of small tweaks that pack a punch - like the odd bit of honest communication amongst the Scoobies.
Be warned, Buffy is dead until Chapter 5, and the rating is mostly intended for later in the story.
This story is still being updated: expect new chapters every month-ish.
Runner Up for Best Angst in round 30 of the SunnyD Awards.
Season 6 Thanksgiving with Buffy and Dawn's aunts. Missing scenes between Wrecked and Gone, so canon with all that that entails - smutty and sad.
Digbert has been nominated for Best Original Character in round 31 of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards.
It's late season 2, and Spike discovers Buffy locked out of her house after patrol. Shenanigans ensue.
Assume Buffy and Spike made their truce a bit earlier than in canon - leaving them some time before Acathla - and that Joyce still doesn't know Buffy's the Slayer. Memories have been adapted to include Dawn.

Sometime post-Gone, a Spike and Buffy tryst. A character study.
