Hi, I'm Vero and I'm from Italy.

I'm an old-time -ish BTVS fan in her late 30s who's been recently sucked back into the Buffyverse by hard-hitting nostalgia after rewatching on D+ Star. I've also caught up with the comics after dropping it mid-S8 years ago. Currently finished S11 and not planning on reading S12.

Huge Spuffy shipper. Those two stole my heart, ripped it to shreds and never really gave it back to me. I've shipped other couples from other shows, but Spuffy is like my mother ship: it all started with them and I always go back to them.

The reason I love Spuffy so much can be summed up by this beautiful quote, which appears here with permission from the author:
"Their relationship is strong, and stubborn, and deep and passionate, and completely unable to die, not without springing back up later, full of more fire and fight than ever before"
—violettathepiratequeen, from "What Willow Saw"

WRITER PROFILE

I'm adding this bit of information because it's the 1st time for me joining a fanfic community, so nobody here knows who I am.

In the past decade I co-wrote with two friends a fanfic series set in a Post-Chosen AU which follows the adventures of a group of four Slayers who were awakened during the events of "Chosen", all original characters. Alas, the whole thing is in Italian.

So I'm not a first-time fanfic writer, but for the first time I'm attempting to write a long fic in English, which is not my native language, and I'll be publishing this story here on SAD, along with other stories I might find inspiration to write.

Summary:

An anthology of Spuffy Snippets, Vol. 1

Complete at 100 chapters; then continuing with Vol. 2. 
Mostly missing scenes from various seasons and post-series, all in drabble and multi-drabble format, often canon-divergent, hence the “Alternate Reality” tag. S
ince I’m following weekly prompts from various active drabble communities, Categories, Genres, and Warnings might be updated accordingly as the anthology grows. 

Rated [R] to err on the safe side because of some coarse language. Most of the drabbles could very well be [PG-13].

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.

However, there’s no need to read that or to have an extensive knowledge of the comics; you will find a short recap of what you need to know 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!

Summary:

A Spuffy Autumn in San Francisco.
Snippets of Buffy and Spike’s everyday life during the infamous “quiet year” mentioned in S12 comics. 
A cohesive story built from a list of prompts, told in short chapters (below or slightly above 1,000 words), and set in a post-S11 world where Spuffy never broke up, hence the “Alternate Reality” tag.  

Rated [R] to err on the safe side mostly because of Spike’s language.

Instead, Buffy stops by Spike’s crypt after failing to locate the runaway groom, and they have a conversation.

Summary:

A few years into the future, Dawn learns that Buffy & Spike are thinking about ending their relationship and she believes they’d make a big mistake, so she stages a small ‘intervention,’ hoping to help them see that they simply hit a bump in the road and they can overcome this one and many others. Although, the way she goes about it is rather unusual.

Drabble fic with little plot and a good trip down memory lane.

Some artworks will depict NC-17 / adult rated scenes since there are some coming up. 
Please check the CHAPTER NOTES under "Table of Contents" for the specific rating of every single artwork.
 
There's no need to read the story, the artworks work perfectly as standalone pieces of art, and I'll provide a quick context for each.

Summary:

Challenge response. 
Prompt (in short): Buffy experiencing grief and longing. 

Set in Post-Series, after “Chosen” and during the time frame of AtS S5. Since I needed to establish Buffy’s whereabouts, I borrowed the setting of the Scottish castle from S8 of BtVS comics and the concept of the Slayer Organization. This story is set before the events told in the comic series, time-wise, but it’s entirely unrelated to the comics plotline. Warnings explained in the Story Notes.

Story title is a song by Green Day.

Summary:

What the drabble?
Here’s a collection of random, potentially absurd scenes set in the approximate time frame between S4 “Doomed” / S5 “Crush”, in which Buffy finds Spike casually hanging out at her place and/or with her family, for no particular reason.
This is NOT a cohesive story and it is NOT supposed to be taken too seriously! It’s just me having a little bit of fun with Buffy and Spike getting on each other’s nerves. I hope it’ll make you smile!

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 around mid Season 6 (likely sometime between 6x12 "Doublemeat Palace" and 6x13 "Dead Things"). It's Xmas Eve but Buffy isn't feeling very festive. Sunnydale is hosting a Winter Wonderland fair and Buffy decides to visit it after patrol, hoping to get in the mood for the small gathering that Dawn insisted on having at their place. Before going home she crosses paths with the Guardian of a mysterious Wishing Well… 

Written for the “2022 White Elephant Exchange” event at SAD.

Set in an Alternate Reality where ideally all my S7 Missing Scenes exist in the same timeline.
