Skin: Tis The Season

I got into the Buffyverse back in 2010 thanks to Netflix streaming. Since then I've watched all seven seasons of BTVS and five seasons of Angel several times each. I've also started collecting the comics, even though I've not had the time to read most of them.

Spike is my favorite character out of the lot. Not to say that I don't like the other characters, it's just that there's so much you can do with Spike. He's very multi-faceted.

After reading a lot lot lot of fanfiction, the idea of what could've happened if Spike hadn't burned at the end of Chosen popped into my head and wouldn't go away. I finally wrote a rough draft of the first chapter and then figured it would. It didn't, so I kept going.

I never thought of myself as a writer... I'm a numbers girl. I work with massive spreadsheets and huge databases for a living, so it really surprised me when people responded positively to my stories. It's kinda relaxing to just lose myself in some other world for a while. Sometimes I kinda know what's gonna happen next, but most times the characters pretty much do whatever they please and I just type it out. Good thing I'm a fast typist.

I'd promised myself that I wouldn't post any new stories until I'd finished the ones I've already been posting and that I wouldn't post a new story unless I'd finished it. Well, that didn't work out terribly well. I stopped writing and didn't even open any of my stories for nearly four years because life happened, but got back into it a few months ago and have been living in my various story worlds since then. (My TV and streaming services are probably wondering why I've ghosted them, since I haven't watched hardly anything in that time.)

I've made a lot of progress on a bunch of stories, but none are complete. I was going to hold off posting anything until they were, but being that my teenager keeps reminding me that I'm old and could feasibly die at any moment, I decided to start posting the stories I've gotten the furthest in. Don't want to settle down for my dirt nap with folders full of unpublished work.

I also post to Ao3 under hulettwyo, if anyone wants to check out the stories that aren't suitable for posting here. All of them have Spike, but a few have him paired with (or at least shagging) other characters.

I very much appreciate each and every review and I love you guys for taking the time to read my stuff. Happy reading! XXXX

Summary: This story idea came about from a Facebook conversation that had to do with Spike in a French maid’s uniform.  *pauses while I wait for everyone to picture that then wipe the drool off their chins* 
What I ended up with is not even close to what I envisioned when I started writing it, but my muse apparently loves to chuck the GPS out the window and find its own way, so this story is basically smut with half a cup of plot and a teaspoon of angst.
Set about six months after a ‘Something Blue’ in which the aftermath of Willow’s ‘my will be done’ spell went a little differently.  In this alternate verse, Buffy and Spike’s love remained after Willow ended the spell and they’re together.  (Maybe someday I’ll write that story.)

Summary: Isis_Nocturne asked me to write her a Spuffy story.  I’d never written from a prompt before… ideas just barge their way into my brain and stomp around until I’ve written them, so this was a bit of a novel experience.
She asked for a sweet bit of Spuffy lovin’ in any season, additional characters optional, but she’d like to see Dawn or Joyce.  For the purposes of this story the comics never happened, and if I did hurt/comfort then Spike should be the one receiving comfort.  Ideas started pinging around my brain almost immediately and this story is what I came up with. 
It's a longish one-shot that takes place just after Angel season five.

Summary:

Takes place during the sexcapades of Season Six.  No real warnings to speak of, maybe some mature language or themes, but nothing you couldn’t see on prime-time television.

This started out cruising down Humor Lane then took a sharp right onto Angst Avenue.  Part of me thinks it ends up being a bit AU, while another part thinks this could have happened in canon.  I’ll let you decide.
