[livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends is a community for posting short Spuffy works. I love short pieces, and you can find some of the best here! Here is just a sample:

The Faerie Queen by [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight (1,000 words)
Titania, the queen of fairies is looking for the slayer. Spike gets in her way . Whimsical and atmospheric, it has such an unreal quality, and yet Spike is perfectly true to character. One of [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight’s many talents.

This year's [livejournal.com profile] whichwillow ficathon elicited truly superb fiction from the participating authors, so choosing just five was sort of arbitrary. But these were especially swell by my way of thinking:

1) Equinox (Willow/Angel; PG-13) by [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies: Yes indeed - Snowy has written her very first Willow/Angel fic and it's a ring-tailed boomer. In a dystopian future, Willow and Angel find themselves on opposite sides but soon meet in the grey middle. What happens between them and how this tale ends are involving and affecting in every way.

The Next Four )

There already is a post by [livejournal.com profile] snickfic dedicated to long Spuffy fics. She has collected five magnificent stories there, and I regard this post as a continuation of her work.

Where Pies Go When They Die by [livejournal.com profile] ghostyouknow27
http://ghostyouknow27.livejournal.com/tag/where%20pies%20go%20when%20they%20die
R. Completed. ~ 17,500 words. Post-series. Spike has landed in a special Hell, courtesy of Wolfram & Hart. Buffy's rescue mission leads her... into a diner from Hell. Deliciously cracktastic tale in Lewis Carroll style with shadows of Tim Burton and Chris Nolan lurking at the corners. Inventive plot, powerful, well-crafted concept, great timing and sense of details - each of them works for a bigger plan. HeavenHell is very unusual - funny and creepy at the same time; Buffy's speech patterns ("What the pie?") as well as her reaction to SPN-skewed reality are priceless.

Fray is an amazing limited run series that I highly recommend you pick up. It takes place about a 1000 years after Buffy and Angel end, and there's some truly kick ass world building/continuation going on here. It's a little bleaker than Buffy, and the stories here reflect that. I'm not sure how well you'll be able to follow what's going on here with out having read the stories, so I strongly recommend reading the source material first.

Bad day. Started bad. Got worse. )

PG-13, Season 7, episodes "Bring on the Night" through "Chosen". Buffy and Spike as seen by Potentials and Faith. Sharp, insightful character study; inventive use of POVs; great voices - Potentials have more interesting personalities in this fic than they have in canon. From Molly, who initially thinks that

Spike must be a dog ("Buffy talks about Spike being the only one strong enough to protect everyone and Xander’s jibes about him attacking people combined with Dawn’s sarcastic
comment about him needing to be put down made her really think it must have been a dog") to Faith who tries to convince Buffy that she shouldn't run away from her emotions ("I know you think anything that feels good is big-time evil. But that ain’t true."), it's a powerful and gripping story.

Fuffy fans are not particularly active on LJ. There are several pretty active Fuffy forums and fic archives online, and the majority of Fuffy shippers spend their time there, or on ff.net. Still, there are wonderful Buffy/Faith (as well as Buffy-and-Faith) fics posted on LJ.

What We Got (Is Everything) by [livejournal.com profile] deird1
http://deird1.livejournal.com/189861.html
PG, post-Chosen. Sharp, insightful and deliciously funny exploration of a possible relationship. Deird1 proves that cute and smart aren't mutually exclusive: her story is sweet without being sachharine, funny without being overtly fluffy, sexy without being too graphic. It's all about the tiny details.

Every fan has his/her own idea on how Buffy and Spike have met after he has been resurrected, and the stories about their reunions are written again and again. Fluffy, angsty, with different plot twists like amnesia, prophecies, videoblog reports, reincarnations and other genre archetypes.

so, how some of their reunions happened in 2009? )

1)  Everything Changes ([livejournal.com profile] starshine24mc , crossover with Torchwood, Giles/Jack Harkness, PG13)

Absolutely stunning little fic that goes with a lovely premise that Giles and Jack would totally run into each other in a dark alley one night.  You don't really have to know Torchwood to read this, just know that while the Btvs verse is about monsters, the Torchwood verse is all about aliens instead.

narrowing down to five was *much* harder than i thought it was going to be )

I love rare pairings and this particular pair tends to come about under very specific circumstances - Buffy's death or absence. The wrenching grief that both characters share over a sister and a lover that they've lost is haunting and lovely, as are the inevitable comparisons made between the two Summers girls. The first three fics reach through the numbness of mourning and/or sacrifice to touch the fire beneath. The last two non-shippy fics explore the obstacles of timelessness vs. youth and mortality. 

1. Departure by [profile] only_passenger
NC-17, post-NFA
Summary: A few years post-Chosen, Dawn lives with and cares for a post-traumatic stress disordered Buffy in Rome. When a trip to Los Angeles brings Dawn and Angel face to face, she must decide whose life she is going to live.      

Review: It's hard to know what to say about this story other than it's amazing and possibly my favorite one shot ever. Pass writes things real and hard and gritty, and she didn't pull her punches here. This story explores the difficult realities of what it means to be a caretaker to an ill person, the stresses it causes, the sacrifice it takes. Although the fic is really about Dawn's journey as she makes her way in the world, Angel's presence is like the catalyst for a big bang. He's dynamite and Dawn has the fire to make him explode.

quinara: Spike and Buffy approaching 'their' tree in AYW. (Spuffy tree)
[personal profile] quinara
These are five fics I associate with the time before I got my LJ in 2003, when the world of Spuffy fanfic was a very different place (or so it seems to me now). They've stuck with me to such an extent that it seems odd people haven't read them and they've probably influenced me more than I realise.

Action/Adventure FTW! )

Joss provided us with countless ploys to develop the universe he created: alternate dimensions, slayer dreams and memories, not to mention good old sci-fi technologies and, last but not least, characters worth exploring. Here are 5 stories based on unusual plot bunnies.

Nothing Ventured by [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight
One-shot, NC-17, between Hell Bells and Seeing Red on BtVS and post-Couplet on AtS. Spike visits Angel in LA and talks with him about Buffy without naming her. Angel thinks they're talking about Dru and gives him some advices... Terrific idea and masterful execution: sharp dialogues, minimalist descriptions, spiced with lethal irony. A character-study-cum-tearjerker-par-excellence.

Each of the following fics (and authors) left an indelible impression on me as a reader years ago, but I also credit them with heavily influencing my own work. I have always been interested in the interplay between sexuality-as-plot-device and how intimate encounters can work to reveal hidden truths about characters. These stories do just that while also exploring a theme near and dear to me - the value memory and rememberance.

1. By Way of Pain by AmyB
RATING: NC-17 for heavy BDSM and bloodplay
SETTING: Season 6
PAIRING: Spike/Buffy, Spike/Drusilla
SUMMARY: During Dead Things, Spike muses on his experiences with bondage through the years and its effects on who he has become.

This post is somewhat nostalgic for me because these were the fics I was reading early on in my lurker days before I had an LJ or was writing. Each of these stories are excellent and although they are permanent WIPs, you won't be disappointed with the plots. They range in chapter length from 10-47. Most written during or prior to 2006.

1. A Dying Dream by Europanya ([info]euro_fics)
RATING: NC-17
SETTING: Canon through BtVS, AU for AtS S5
PAIRING: Buffy/Spike
SUMMARY: A decade after closing the Hellmouth and doing time in Hell, Spike is living in San Francisco, a lone vampire in a world nearly wiped clean of demons, when Buffy unexpectedly finds her way back to him. [19 chapters]

I don't do a whole lot of rec'ing, usually because I'm the last train at the station anyway. However, as this is a comm for compiling favorites? I'm givin' this a shot. These are my top five fics for the past year. Multiple pairings, multiple characters. Most of these will be FRAO.

In no particular order: )

I had a couple others in mind, (Quartz by sexymermaid, and Second Chance by denied_heaven) but had to withdraw them because they were from 2005. That sucked! They were excellent stories!
