Author has written 125 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Torchwood.

FF writer in the world of BtVS and AtS (with a venture into TW xover). Primarily Spuffy, but with some Spander, Spangel, Gethan and the odd gen or Spike/other ficlet. Spike is my vamp. And, unless he shanshues, he always will be a vamp, and Buffy will always be a slayer. Don't look for any AH here. I firmly believe that Buffy, Spike, Angel, and all the other characters in that world are WHO they are, because of WHAT they are. Take that away, and you don't have the same characters, and I'm not interested in them. :)

My complete works can be found at my website: spuffystuff.org. Many of them can also be found at AO3; the Spuffy ones are also on the Bloodshedverse and The Spuffy Realm among other archives.

Many of these fics were written a long time ago when I was primarily posting on a site that required some sort of blood play in a fic. Not really a problem when you're writing about vampires, but still... lots of blood play, claiming, biting, etc in many of these early fics. FF.net doesn't seem to care about warnings, and I'm not big on them either, so there may be unpleasant surprises occasionally. Probably 90% of what I write is Spuffy and eventually ends in a happy place, but not everything is or does; and even if there's a happy ending for Spike and Buffy, it's possible somebody died on the way there. Consider that fair warning...

Fiction often has villains, bad people or creatures who do bad, evil things. In my stories, they almost always get their just desserts, but until they do, terrible things can happen. No apologies for that, and I'm not likely to warn for it. On the other hand, I'm not inclined to write extremely graphic violence or torture, so it's probably not a big deal. Just keep in mind that not everything is going to be fluffy. And, my stories are written for adults, about adults, so there will not often be children in the stories, and I don't expect children to be reading them. So please don't.

I've posted the really long fics in largish chunks of text - several chapters at a time. I know some readers have found that inconvenient or disturbing, but these are very long fics, mostly quite old ones that are available elsewhere on a chapter-by-chapter basis, and if they are to go up here, it will have to happen in the manner most convenient for me. This is also true of really short ficlets that are closely related or just too short to deserve their own page. They will be combined under some sort of general title like "Season Six Schmoop Bingo Fics" or something like that. My apologies in advance for my laziness. :)

Apparently I also need to offer apologies for what may turn out to be some unexpected difficulty reading the stories. My chapters tend to be longish on all but my earliest stories and they may have multiple scene changes within the chapter. Turns out my usual methods for marking scene changes don't copy into the published story on this site. That may make them difficult to follow, IMHO, so I've learned to use xxxxxxxx in between scenes rather than what I'd been using everywhere else. However, editing the documents on here is a tedious process and there is no way I can go through all the stories I've posted already and put the missing scene breaks back in. My apologies for that too. Learning to post on this site is clearly a wip for me... New fics posted will be easier to read as they were intended to be.

I keep pruning this profile to make it shorter, then finding things I should add. *sigh* I think, given that there's (as far as I know) no way to indicate that a group of fics go together or are set in one particular "verse", I am going to give a list of my alternate worlds so you don't have to search too hard to figure out what goes where. So...

The I Know You verse - starts with Prologue/I Know You and continues with I Know You, II, Knowing and Watching, Pop Goes the Weasel, and Meanwhile Back on the Hellmouth. This is kind of ongoing, so there may be additions to it from time to time. Prologue is set immediately after "Chosen" and I Know You begins a year or so later, then becomes a time-travel fic going back to Season 2. Most of the other stories are set in an alternate world in which season 2 Spike and Buffy find themselves. There is, however, some crossover with the more familiar world of Sunnydale's Spike and Buffy.

The Bumpverse - Begins with Things That Go Bump in the Night and continues with A Bumpy Christmas, a whole slew of Bumpverse Schmoop Bingo ficlets set in that world and probably posted on here as a group, and Always Knew I'd Go Down Fightin' which pretty much wraps it up many years in the future. Things That Go Bump takes place in an AU future several years after the end of BtVS and AtS TV shows. No comics knowledge needed, although if you're familiar with them you may catch a reference somewhere. No plans to add to this world at this time, but you never know what bunnies might pop up someday.

Loves Lost Series - This begins with an AU season 2 in which Angel loses his soul when he is being drained to save Dru and goes on from there. Totally AU from then on - fics are Loves Lost, Love Awakened, Love Continued, and Love Sanctioned. Much darker than my normal stuff, but lightens up as it goes on.

I think these are the only ones with enough fics set in them to be called actual verses. Lots of my fics have sequels, but unless there is more than one sequel, I'm not calling those series.

And I just keep finding more things to say - take one paragraph out, add two. LOL

item #1 - An M means a serious M, Do not read if you aren't old enough. I will tell your mother!

item #2 - I'm a bit compulsive about responding to reviews, which I can't do for people not logged in. So - blanket "thank you so much for reading and telling me you enjoyed it" to everyone who leaves a review as a "guest". :)

And even more review info to add... I've received more than one nice review (thank you so much, you know who are) from someone who wasn't logged in and therefore not possible for me to respond to. (I have a somewhat compulsive need to at least say "thank you" for reviews, and not being able to respond to "guests" is weird for me. But that's my issue.) The thing is, more than one person has mentioned the relatively small number of reviews on a particular fic with surprise that it doesn't have more, so let me repeat the above information that I've been writing in this verse a very long time, just not posting on ff.net, (which I've discovered has an entirely new audience who do not necessarily use other archives.) Almost all of these older fics, and most of the newer ones, are available many other places. And have been for, in some cases, ten years or more. So, a lack of reviews on here isn't really a big deal and does not indicate a lack of attention to the stories. Chances are many of those who would have reviewed have already done so somewhere/somewhen else. I very much appreciate your reading and reviewing my stories, but please don't worry that no one else is or has. :)

item #3 - Just a word to the wise - if you are presenting yourself as a beta, it's best not to have any typos or spelling mistakes in your own profile or in your list of beta qualifications. I'm just saying...


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.

The Gentleman Returns reviews
Fourth and last in the series that began with The Gentleman Wore Leather. This one is multi-chaptered and ends in a happier place (for most of the characters) than the others did. It's season 3 and Buffy's Cruciamentum is coming. Will she face it alone? Not if Joyce has anything to say about it...

Across a Crowded Room reviews
From a prompt at sb fag ends community - the prompt was "What if Buffy had met Spike's eyes in that club?" I'm fairly sure that it was meant to apply to "The Girl in Question", but I chose to imagine it taking place in the Bronze in season 2. Not sure where it goes from here. But probably somewhere.

A sequel to "Double Bubble Toil and Trouble" in which Willow went on more of a power trip than she did in canon, resulting in, among other things, a different and evolving relationship between Spike and Buffy. This story pics up a couple of weeks after and goes on it's non-canon way from there.

Valentine's Day Special reviews
The sequel to my Valentine's Day pwp of a few years ago, (God Bless St. Valentine), this one begins immediately after the ending of that one. I don't know that it's necessary to have read the first one, but it would definitely help explain what's going on here. We begin with Spike and Buffy cuddling in his bed…

SBFagEnds ficlets reviews
So, there's this amazing LJ community called sb fag ends that provides weekly prompts for Spike/Buffy ficlets. Not all are fluffy, because "romance isn't always romantic", all are less than 1000 words, but they all feature our twosome. I'll add to this as I have time and fic to share - the prompts will be visible somewhere, possibly in the title if I'm not feeling creative.

Cool, Clear Water reviews
Written for the prompts at sb fag end's annual Halloween Challenge. All I had time for this year, although I may continue in this "verse" using other prompts. We'll see. This takes place in some random season - probably 5. The prompts used were crystal, pure spring water, and mirror. Just a little adventure for them.

Written originally for sb fag ends/ashtray (and trope bingo– futurefic), the prompt was ten-years-gone.

A sequel to Someday Soon, this AU season 5 story follows immediately after the events at the end of that story.

A sequel to "Are We Friends?" in which Buffy and Spike deal with the consequences of their actions in that story. Turns out it wasn't as much of a one-off as Buffy thought it was going to be... Begins the following morning. Some minor Angel-bashing in here, but he comes through like a champ in the end. Definite Riley-bashing, just in case you care. :)

Are We Friends? reviews
Between Seasons 4 and 5, but totally non-canon. Prequel to Just a Summer Romance. (Don't know why I've been so reluctant to put this short fic and its longer sequel up here. They're no more explicit than some others.) Buffy finds herself alone for the summer, and Spike proves to be a welcome and unexpectedly entertaining companion and slaying partner.

Initiative Dreams 1 reviews
An older season 4 fic that I've cleaned up some, but still probably isn't something I'd write now. But season 4 is always popular, so here you have a Spike and Buffy who seem to have a strong connection of some sort that may or may not be useful when it comes to fighting off Adam and his army.

Comics-based Ficlets reviews
Some too-short-for-their-own-page ficlets written based on events in the Buffy season 9 comic. I don't think you need to be following the comics to enjoy this Spuffier slant on various scenes from this season, at least I hope not. A more specific brief summary of the story/situation precedes each ficlet.

A sequel to "Time Is On My Side", my short, smutty, Spack ficlet. Buffy (and Faith) have shown up in Cardiff, as Spike suspected they would, and the first person they meet is Jack. And a couple of weevils… Unlike the prequel, this one is mostly Spuffy with some Jack/Faith/Ianto thrown in. Such a hussy that Faith is...

Love Sanctioned 1 reviews
The fourth and last story in the Loves Lost series, in which new characters emerge, the PtB have surprises, and the mayor's ascension isn't quite the big deal it was in canon. Oh yeah, and Buffy and Spike finally get their happy ever after ending. Less angsty than previous fics, but edging back toward the darkness that began the series. A well-deserved "M" rating...

The next in the series that began with the very grim "Loves Lost" and continued in the angsty "Love Awakened". Spike has returned to Sunnydale for a brief visit during which he was not really planning to let Buffy know he was there. As usual, his plans don't work out quite like he expected. The "M" rating is very much earned by this one. Just so you know...

Sequel to Loves Lost, this is another short story in which Angelus and Dru have both dusted, and Spike is still crippled. In Love's Lost Buffy had been badly abused by the vampires at the behest of Ethan Rayne, who has now been defeated by Giles and taken away to be punished. It picks up as Buffy arrives home after her ordeal. The second in a series of steadily more Spuffy stories.

Some not terribly original plot concepts, including some I've used before, but hopefully an original take on those ideas.

This is the sequel to Lovers and Lethe. Set six months to a year later, as per instructions from debris4spike.

But they left LA without doing anything about "Anne" and her interest in vampires.

Out of the Blue reviews
Retro Season 4 fic in which Spike's chip has given him time to notice how he feels about Buffy, and given Buffy, Giles and the Scoobies a chance to get used to Spike's presence. Pretty typical season 4 Spuffy with a , hopefully, new twist to make it work.

Boy Good reviews
Written as a sequel to "Boy Smell Nice", a fun little ficlet by ZoeGrace set during the episode "Beer Bad". Zoe's fic has Cave Buffy noticing that Spike smells good and dragging him into her dorm room, where they enjoy their encounter and he bites her, accidentally trying to claim her. Obviously changes many things about what follows. We begin with the last line of Zoe's fic...

A Very Strange Vampire reviews
Set in an AU season 4 where Buffy doesn't get the Gem of Amara from Spike as she does in canon. Goes AU from there on, as that changes everything about how and when they find out about the Initiative, as well as how Spike comes to her for help . Needless to say, it's hard for our two fav characters to spend a lot of time in each other's company without developing feelings...

Non-canon season 4, right from the beginning. Spike and Buffy get a bit more involved during Willow's spell than they had a chance to on the show and must learn to live with the consequences. The rest of the story is about how they adjust to their new relationship and how it affects them and those around them. Long fic, but posted in several sections for easier reading.

The sequel to Prologue/I Know You, this story is concerned primarily with what happened to the Spike and Buffy who were yanked out of Sunnydale in the first fic. There are occasional visits to check up on both the post-NFA dimension and the early Sunnydale one, but mostly we watch season 2 Buffy and season 2 Spike trying to get to know each other in another dimension.

Buffy chases a time traveling demon through a portal and spends a few days in Victorian England where she meets a helpful little boy. Once back in Sunnydale, life goes on as normal until a new vampire comes to town and things get very complicated, very quickly...

Very much a "what if" kind of story in which Buffy wakes up in a mental hospital, having recovered her sanity when she jumped off the tower. She works hard to make a life for herself, including meeting and falling in love with young man, only to find herself pulled back into her delusion when Willow's spell resurrects her. Obviously, AU, but sticks to canon as much as is possible.

A few more too-short-for-their-own-pages season six ficlets. These are all pretty old, but I think (unlike some of my other season 6) they hold up pretty well. In more or less chronological order from Buffy's return to her convo with Spike at the wedding. Sort of FitB, but ultimately non-canon.

The much longer sequel to "Not Ready". Did what I swore I wouldn't do and removed one small scene that was probably too explicit for this site. You won't miss it. For Spander lovers who don't like to admit Buffy even exists, sorry. She does exist (eventually) in this fic and she spends some time with Spike. But alls well that ends well. :)

Three totally unrelated ficlets that all were written to meet Schmoop Bingo prompts. One is twenty years in the future, one takes place shortly after NFA, and one is set at the end of season 8 of the comics when Spike and his space ship have come to the rescue. The common theme is reunion. They are all too short to waste a whole story entry on them. (IMHO)

If That's What it Takes reviews
In an AU season 6, Willow has accidentally sent Spike and Buffy off to another dimension where they are both ordinary humans and married.

Even Champions Need A Home reviews
AU Season 7. A messenger from the PtB shows up in Sunnydale to help Buffy get Spike out of the school basement and off the Hellmouth. The suggested themes for that round of Seasonal Spuffy were "humor" and "hope". I think there's a bit of both.

When the Ice has Melted reviews
A plottier sequel to a pwp ("How Can Something So Cool Make Me So Hot?"" set in season 5. Buffy and Spike try to deal with the feelings awakened by their unplanned tryst (in which Spike is quite inventive when it comes to soothing her sunburn...) while coping with Riley's growing jealously. Rated "M" for references to what happened in the previous story.

A Friend in Need reviews
A sequel to Even Demons Need Friends. If you haven't read that short s4 fic, all you really need to know is that this is a non-canon Season 5 in which Glory is there searching for her Key, Joyce is sick, Spike is unchipped and living in another city. At the end of the previous story, he'd asked Buffy to call him if she needed help.

Another One Bites the Dust reviews
Buffy and Spike deal with the aftermath of Willow's spell, while Riley becomes more talkative than he should around Giles and that relationship becomes a no-go. Written for the Good/Evil community, it was supposed to be evil Spike, but it's really a bit more like petulant Spike. :)
