I’m finally ready to admit that I'm obsessed with Spuffy.
I mean, I did the back-to-back BtVS DVD/Netflix marathons, the endless news searches on Google, and the all-nighters reading Spuffy fanfiction.
But it was just a phase, right? So I kept waiting for the fervor to cool, the interest to wane, only it didn't.
And it didn't.
So, long after the show ended, the comic got weird, and the steady flow of existing Spuffy fanfics started to ebb more than flow, I jumped in, Glory’s tower style, into the writing. Because I absolutely love the fact that there are others just like me (Hi, there!), who adore Buffy and Spike. Because I desperately want to keep the fandom going.
I write other, original, stories too, but somehow I'm just stuck on Spuffy. Well, quite right too.
Writing is usually an activity done alone and away from everyone else, but writing fanfic, with a community hungry for the same stories that drive my muse, is an exhilarating experience. I never feel alone--especially when you lovely people leave me reviews, so that I know I'm not shouting to an empty room with my story in my hand and my heart on my sleeve! :)
“You really trust him?” It boiled down to this, didn’t it? Buffy comes clean to Willow about Spike. Set in Season 5, roughly following “Intervention”.
“Don’t hold back,” she whispered. A truer invitation he had never received.
Before her fatal leap off of Glory’s tower, Buffy invites Spike into her house to retrieve weapons. An extended version of that scene.
Set in Season 5, "The Gift".
