Summary: Or, Buffy and Spike accept an undercover mission from Sunnydale's resident loan shark on his new demon cruise line. If they succeed, Buffy'll get enough money to stop the leaking financial boat that is her life and Spike'll have his kitten debts cleared. 

They probably should have asked more questions about that cover story, though. 

Starts in 6x08, "Tabula Rasa" and goes wildly off script from there. 
 
Banner designed by the incomparable Dusty, who does ask all the right questions, like, "What did you name the boat?"

These all follow the theme of longing and desire born of distance. But perhaps not so forever.

Summary: One night. That was all Buffy thought she'd be spending with Spike. He'd tell her how he killed her sister slayers, and in exchange, he'd get cash and one "get out of petty evil free" card. Instead, after a surprise ambush and several tranquilizer darts, they both wake up in an alternate dimension to find that they're now players in a life-or-death game set in Bizarro Sunnydale. To survive, they'll have to be the last ones standing--or figure out who brought them here in the first place and why.
Sounds easy, right? After all, it's not like she hasn't worked with Spike to take down a baddie before. Unfortunately, their fellow competitors are kind of familiar.
Like, really familiar.
You could say they know them just as well as they know themselves.

Summary: When Buffy’s sent back to her first year of college to retrieve an artifact for the future, she ends up on the day of the first inaugural Christmas Party at Casa del Xander. 
Or, time travel meets its greatest match, and that match is alcohol.
 
This fic was originally written as an Elysian Fields Secret Santa gift for MillennialCryBaby, whose request for "time travel" and "drinking games with secrets revealed" amused me greatly. Because it took me right up to the deadline, and there was a word limit, I've always been a little wistful over things I was never able to work in. Thankfully, there's a shiny new site that gave me an excuse to do so. So here's a slightly longer version. Consider this the version that comes from the parallel world where I manage my time correctly. 
 
Big thanks again to Dusty for the pretty, swirly, time-travely banner.

Summary: When Buffy finds out an assassin is gunning for her, there's only one place to hide. Unfortunately, the amenities are a little lacking. And her new cryptmate is a little surly, because she may have kind of sort of just gotten him shot. Pay him enough, though, and he won't mind too much, right?
