Native to Southern California, turning 25 along with the show this year, and extremely attracted to Spike. Clearly Buffy and I have a lot in common, lol. Buffy and Spike mean the world to me, and that's all there is to it. I love them to bits, every part of them, and I dimly remember having other characters who were contenders as my favorites, but now it's clearly these two. She keeps me strong, and he keeps me sane. There's a lot of media out there that represents poor mental health, and I used to cling to them and feel seen by them... but I think this show is special in the way that it shows it, but doesn't wallow in it. It doesn't embrace the darkness, and it doesn't coddle the weakness, but gives room to feel it and work through it, and then rise above and overcome it, and I never knew how much I was missing that in shows until this one!

 

My stories continue to remain smut-free, with an excess of sleepy cuddles in its place, because that's just what keeps me going. I know that decision maybe affects my readership a little bit, but I want to sincerely thank every single one of you who have read my stories even with the lower ratings, who have come back to my stuff even knowing this fact about me, and who have left me such kind comments that don't speak a WORD of disappointment or expectation or curiosity regarding the sex topic. You make me feel very safe and accepted, and it's gonna get real awkward if I suddenly get a comment contradicting this statement and have to delete this, but for now, just a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Spuffy community for allowing me my innocent snuggles!

Summary: "You almost died, that’s what’s happened," Buffy scoffed. "And the fever isn’t helping. And you’re in the wreckage of the Wolfram and Hart med lab, in case you’re wondering."
 
Spike really only registered one part of that. "But vampires don’t get fevers."
 
"I know," she said softly.
 
In this version of BtVS season 8, we will see Xander date a normal girl for once, discover why the Immortal and Buffy entered each other's lives, and answer the age-old question of the Shanshu Propechy. Actually, more than one age-old question about it. And if we could figure out how to not have so many apocalpyses anymore, well, that wouldn't be terrible.
