Summary: A collection of teasy, naughty 'deleted scene' one-shots (and longer) set in Season 4, arranged by BtVS timeline. Each fic stands on its own, totally disregarding the one(s) before it, though a few of them are treated as 'canon' in my fic, Wild Things.
rnThe stories included in this series: "Enthralled", "Truce or Dare", "Sleeptalking", "Just A Taste", "The Sandman's Promise" (all originally published 2001-2002), and the 3-parter, "Under The Influence" (published 2009).
rnStories in this series have collectively won seventeen awards, including "Year's Best Spike Characterization", "Year's Best PWP", "Year's Best Episode Stealer", "Best Comedy/Lighthearted", "Best Short", "Best Ensemble", "Hottest Bite", and more.

Summary:
Can you tell I really hate the original canon cookies scene? You know the one - where Angel comes swooping to the rescue like a knight in fancy hair gel, and Buffy "basks" in his presence, and the music rises, and there's swooning and kissing. As if she isn't already in love with someone else; as if HE isn't already in love with someone else. As if none of the past few seasons occurred and they revert back to 4 years ago, forgetting who they are and everything that's happened since then. As if it was all just a payoff to resentful Bangel fans so they wouldn't hate the ending of the show entirely. Yeah, that scene. There are so many other scenes and episodes that I would love to tackle and redo/fix in some way eventually, but top on the list has always been this one.

When I brainstormed different ways of redoing the scene, I came up with 6 ideas - 6 different ways that things could have gone differently and more enjoyably than what we got in canon. And since I couldn't pick between them, I had to do them all. Each goes off-canon at different times and in different ways, with the hope of providing a variety of scenarios and outcomes.

What can I say? I violently dislike the original scene, and it took me 6 versions of fix-its to fully cleanse my soul of it. And if someone else happens to enjoy my re-baked offerings, then that's just some extra chocolatey goodness to top it off.

In an alternate universe where Spike is a single vampire and Buffy is just a (not-so-)vanilla human, things go pretty smutty as soon as they meet.

rnA note from the Sunnydale After Dark admins: We are choosing to host this series because the overall series leads to Spuffy. The first two stories, however, are NOT Spuffy-centric. Please skip to 'Some Scenes From the Later Life of Two Heroes' if you would rather avoid reading any /other pairings.

Summary: Four lengthy fics beginning with Buffy and Spike's arrival in season four - each sent back from the future to prevent Buffy's death/resurrection and the rise of the First Evil. Each story covers one season's events and how they are changed by having future Spike and Buffy there, and ending with the future they find themselves in after defeating the First Evil again.
Summary: Buffy investigates a haunted house where the ghost is something prospective slayers and watchers must deal with in order to graduate. Turns out, he is more than a little bit familiar, even though he has no memories of his life before he began haunting his own old house. He may not remember Buffy, but he instantly responds to her.

Summary: A series of four fics that begin much darker than I usually go. The very first scene was written a long time before I had a story to go with it. It was just something I wanted to try, then I needed a fic for the Good/Evil community on LJ, so it turned into a whole story that ended much too sadly. So it got a sequel, and that got a sequel, and... yeah. There it was. A whole series of steadily Spuffier stories evolved from the original non-Spuffy dark story. Except for the sexual situations, the warnings only apply to the first story, but there are warnings to be heeded.
