1. Crazy Madcap Redemption, by [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey
Ats S5; Spike/Dru; longfic.
In which Dru gets a chance to choose who she is and become her own person. Dru finds Spike hanging about Wolfram & Hart, and Spike, heartsore, lonely, and remembering sweet times past, takes it upon himself to save her. This doesn't work out quite how either of them expect. It's all very satisfying, with lovely characterizations and occasional bits of Spikey's hilarious dialogue.

2. Ministers of Grace, by [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42
pre-series; one-shot.
"I don't want to be an evil thing," Dru says in canon, but that's all we ever have to contrast her bloodthirsty innocence with a purer, human kind. Gracefully, sympathetically, this fic follows Dru pre-turning as she's tormented first by her foresight and others' reactions to it and then by Angelus, all informed by her religous upbringing and driving to a devastating last line. Beautifully done.

The Barter Economy, by [livejournal.com profile] bobthemole
sometime post-BtVS S5; one-shot.
A horror story that begins for a half-demon ferryman when a lovely and ancient vampiress buys passage up the Amazon. As a fic about the OC, this is a full-fledged story in its own right, but the Dru characterization is fascinating as well. She's not only heartless but purposeful, a fearful combination, and for me half the interest in the fic is the question of what she'll do afterwards.

Untitled AU, by [livejournal.com profile] a_pretty_fire
BtVS S4-S6; one-shot
Less about Dru herself than the others, but fascinating nonetheless: what if Dru had been chipped instead of Spike? What does a Slayer do, exactly, with a chipped insane vampire? The fic is as much about the Scoobies' response to this quandary as anything else, with an elegant and inevitable ending.

One Good Date, by [livejournal.com profile] rebcake
pre-series; one-shot; Spike/Dru
In which Spike and Dru visit Disneyland. The Magic Kingdom seems just about the perfect venue for Dru, and Spike gallantly squires her around to the see the sights. There are corpses here - vamps have to eat, after all - but mostly this is simply the charming romp of two vampires enjoying themselves.
