These stories are light and filled with lovely humor and happy endings.  And zombies.  And memory spells.  And blackmail.  And unicorns.  And gay (mis)understandings.

In no particular order because I love them all:


1.  Night of St. Vigeous by [livejournal.com profile] ladyofthelog  - The Real Me with a Spuffy-centric reading.  Dawn gets kidnapped by Harmony and who does Buffy turn to as the Harmony expert?  Why, Spike, of course.  Delightful fun with a charming Buffy POV and a romping adventure brought on by Harmony's mastermind of EVOL.


2.  What Richie Said by [livejournal.com profile] aisalynn  - "Buffy reluctantly goes to visit Richard at the hospital after her disastrous birthday, and hears some astonishing information."  Set post-Older and Far Away.  It's such an easy thing to mistake, no?  And some would argue that Richard is not so far off the mark (and wouldn't they be right? *nods*).  This hilarious and joyful story gives Buffy a reason to laugh during the midst of her Season 6 angst and we get to join in on the fun.


3.  Love and Blackmail by [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42  -  "'Love and blackmail are the gist of it.' Dawn knows exactly what her sister needs in order to move on after Sunnydale--and exactly how to make it happen."  This delightful post-Not Fade Away adventure presents Dawn on a mission to get Buffy and Spike back together, but she has to deal with a few complications first.  Like the fact that her sister is dating the Immortal.  This tale brings Dawn's mischievous machinations to the fore coupled with Andrew's bumbling aid and an intriguing Immortal who is more than what he seems.  Brought to you by Lirazel's beautiful prose, you'll be swept away.


4.  Tabula Not Rasa by [livejournal.com profile] moscow_watcher  -  "Xander hasn't stepped on the memory-wiping crystal, so Willow had to find another way to restore their memories. All their memories."  Post-Tabula Rasa.  Hilarious, mindbendy fun!  This type of imagining is a hallmark of Moscow Watcher's stories - where anything that is possible (and has been discussed in fandom) becomes possible in fic. 


5.  Early to Rise by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy  - "Yes... it's a zombie apocalypse! Kind of."  Set post-Not Fade Away, this bite-sized *wink wink* tale portrays Spike and Buffy at their best - in bed, apocalypse imminent, and Spike snarking his ass off.  As usual, Beer Good brings his punchy humor to the party... or should I say pun-y humor?

I think this is the first time I've seen a fic with Richard in it. Poor guy, he'll never trust Xander's advice again :)
