Summary:

Challenge response. 
Prompt: How would things go for Buffy and Spike if their conversation / Spike’s speech in "Touched" + Buffy’s profession of love in "Chosen" had happened earlier? Give Spike and Buffy a happily ever after that doesn’t end in a flamey death. 

Set in early S7 and canon through episode 7x05 "Selfless," which is where this story picks up. It then steers into a different direction, turning into a complete rewrite of S7, though some lines and plot elements will be borrowed from random canon S7 episodes and thrown into the mix.

Summary: Written for the 2023 “Short And Spuffy” Drabble Event. 
Each chapter will be a new drabble following a new prompt. Some genres / warnings might be added as the story progresses. 
My interpretation going into the Event without knowing what the prompts will be, is that each drabble is a fragment of a dream. Something that either Buffy or Spike has dreamed at some point—most likely in the timeline between S6 and Post-Series… but again it might change depending on the prompts given and I’ll update the categories accordingly.
Needless to say, the story title is a famous quote from W.Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”

Summary:

Set in S4, partial rewrite of episode 4x12 “A New Man.”
There is no such thing as a Buffy birthday bash without some chaos and mayhem. As per tradition, her nineteenth birthday brings along some regularly scheduled drama, courtesy of Giles’s old friend and nemesis, Ethan Rayne.
The sorcerer has a special birthday gift for Buffy, one that she’s not happy to receive. More details in the Story Notes.

Summary:

Spike: December 1998 - May 2003 

This is a declaration of love for Spike, obviously inspired by Spike’s speech to Buffy in “Touched.”
Not a Spuffy piece per se but Spike is not Spike without Buffy, and she’s always there even if we can't see her.

This artwork is the result of a collaboration with my giftee, marinaeulalia, who wrote the text you can read on the poster and co-wrote the summary and story notes.
So this is my gift to her, but it’s also our gift to the SAD community.
Happy holidays!
