I love cats, writing, and playing the Sims. Former biology student turned creative writing student, I get weirdly nitpicky about biology...especially vampire biology. The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, folks (Sorry for obligatory biology joke. I'm a nerd, as you can probably tell).

Summary: Maggie Walsh (formerly involved with the Watcher's council in this reality) creates artificial Slayers with the science and technology that the Initiative has to offer. When Kendra died, since Buffy was still alive, Faith wasn't called. However, Walsh has found Faith, and a somewhat crazed, fresh out of hell, Angel.
Then Spike shows up in town, and well...things go downhill from there. But like, in an 'entertaining to watch' sort of way.
Oh yeah, and Mayor Wilkins does his thing, and the Initiative gets involved in that. Another train wreck, but again, entertaining to watch.
An exploration of the grey area of morality that the Initiative lives in, the possible backstory of Maggie Walsh, and...Spike and Buffy helping each other get over their exes with healthy coping strategies and friendship?
It's angsty especially at first but tries not to get too dark, and will get lighter in tone and content as it goes along.
Summary: Buffy cares for Spike after his emergency surgery.

Summary:  Sunnydale is practically in ruins, and the human population suffers under the rule of the Master. Rupert Giles contacts the Slayer, Buffy Summers, to tell her that her help is desperately needed.
Buffy just wants to do her duty: kill the vampires. Save the humans. Move on. After all, that's really all a Slayer is meant for. She needs to kill the Master. It's her duty.
Angel wants to help the residents of Sunnydale, and he would, except there's only one of him, not to mention the fact that he spends most of his conscious hours (and some of his unconscious hours) being tortured by vampire Willow. He needs to escape, regain some of his strength, and then kill the Master. Once, it was his duty. Now? It's personal.
Spike thinks that Sunnydale would be the perfect place to set up shop, except that the established vampires don't like that idea very much, and Spike doesn't want to be the Master's lapdog. He needs a way to dispose of the Master, and hey, if he can bag another Slayer, then that's a bonus.
All three of them want something. They all need something. They're going to have to work together...at least for a little while.

Summary: Spike comes to the Summers' house looking for help after his escape from the Initiative, and gets a little more than he bargained for when Joyce, Dawn, and (a rather reluctant) Buffy take him in. With Joyce in full mothering mode, Dawn seeing him as her cool older "brother", and Buffy slowly coming around to the chipped vampire, things are sure to get interesting! A story about family and platonic love.
