Author has written 1 story for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

I started watching Buffy from day one, in 1997, as a Senior in high school. Grew up with the Scoobies (literally). See Buffy, Spike, and the rest of the gang as my family.

I nursed a healthy attraction to Angel the first time I watched seasons 1 and 2. I'll admit it.

But I absolutely fell in love with Spike the moment he walked on screen in School Hard. By the time he'd dunked his first marshmallow with Joyce in Lover's Walk, I shipped Spuffy bigtime (though admittedly there'd be no concept of "shipping" until much, much later).

Angel and Riley be damned...thy conqueror is Spike.

Truth time. My favorite season was 6. I loved everything about it...the intimacy between Spike and Buffy as a friendship blossomed, the heat of a burgeoning and illicit affair, the emotions that arise when there's only one other soul who understands you.

Even after hundreds of screenings, I still give Spuffy a standing ovation at the end of OMWF, wriggle with glee when they break the house, swoon with every head tilt and tongue-to-teeth moment, and tear up as Spike goes up in amulet-induced flames (I know, I know...he comes back). And yes, I have always understood Spike's MO in Seeing Red. I will argue, discuss, debate the series, anytime, anywhere.

Just don't ever dare to speak bad of my ensouled vamp with peroxide waves. I. Will. Break. You.

I live and breathe this stuff, friends. Absolutely live and breathe it. I have a zillion baby WIPs, a multi-chap 'Verse that's a little heavier into "the works," and a self-promise to keep the Buffyverse alive (and keep feeding the obsession) by systematically devouring every well-written fanfic I can find.

She's Out of Her Mind by BeneficialAddiction reviews
When Willow resurrects Buffy, she doesn't come back numb, she comes back nuts! Racing to find a cure for their friend, the Scoobies quickly realize that they have no idea how to control or care for an insane Slayer, and must turn to the person they've spent all summer ignoring and alienating, the one person they know with over a century of crazy under his belt

Date Material by BeneficialAddiction reviews
Spike loves a challenge. Buffy never backs down. Now a carelessly thrown insult will give one of them a chance – her to get rid of him for good, or him to prove exactly what he's made of. A fun little re-write of Crush.

Five Words or Less by AGriffinWriter reviews
Spuffy AU Season 5: What if Buffy had paid more attention to what Spike says directly after, "Out. For. A. Walk . . . B*tch."? How would she have responded if she'd caught his blunder?

Offers You Can't Refuse by sweetprincipale reviews
Late S.3 AU. Buffy's only way to stay alive and expose a plot by a deranged Quentin Travers involves staying out of Sunnydale and staying one step ahead while Giles finds a way to save her life and get the evidence to stop the corrupt Head of the Council. But who watches the Slayer's back when she's the prey? Someone makes Spike an offer he can't refuse- but not what you'd expect.
