Hey, I'm Heather!

I've been a Buffy fan since "Halloween" and started shipping these two lovable idiots during "Becoming", but truly never expected anything to come of it. I was introduced to Spuffy fanfic through Crumbling Walls and LiveJournal. I wrote my first posted fic before "Chosen" aired and wrote off and on for a few years, before taking a break from fandom. I closed up all my Buffy related websites and chilled for the next 15 years ;)

With the 25th, I felt the urge to start writing again, maybe even finish a couple of WIPs I had, and here  we are. I love both Buffy and Spike separately and together. There's never been any couple better and are my absolute OTP.  I also like to manipulate images and am determined to Spuffify whatever I can.

Hope you enjoy!
