I'd love to say I'm so nice that I deliberately fulfilled [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll's request, but I just happend to have the same idea. Still, here you go.

1. A Nice Little Business by Lilachigh - Alice Pringle. Sounds like an OC, doesn’t she, but no, technically she fits this category. In the author’s words: the vampire lady referred to by Spike in The Replacement, when, sarcastically, he tells the Scoobies that he has been having a cup of tea with the lady who runs a tea-stall in the local garbage dump.

2. What Gets Left Behind by nwhepcat - maybe this is more of a BtVS thing, but seeing that I’m not an AtS fan, I think Wes gets overlooked. The author’s summary: He'd never have believed, when all this started and he'd been so frightened, how much he'd come to love being a father.

3. And Still You Were by deird1 - Oh, yeah, this one. *grin* Phantom Dennis has a new roommate.

4. Bit Parts by Mint Witch. Who’s that chick Spike brought to the wedding?

5. I Was Made for Loving You Baby by Speaker-to-Customers - The BuffyBot becomes sentient. I had to hunt it up on the Wayback Machine. Apparently it’s original site is gone. One of the links between the pages, last time I looked, was missing so I list out all the chapters.

  • Part 1 - Tomorrow I will make three sandwiches and then I will stop and make no more sandwiches. I do not need to be instructed to stop. I have made a decision. I HAVE MADE A DECISION.

  • Part 2 - Giles is wigged.  Willow is wigged too.  The other Scoobies are not wigged.  They laugh.  Even Buffy.

  • Part 3 - I think Spike is right not to like Willow any more.  I have changed my programming to remove Willow 's status as my best friend.  I have installed Buffy as my best girl friend and Spike as my best boy friend.  Except that he is not my boyfriend because he is in love with Buffy but he is okay about being my friend now.  Especially when I wear the dark wig and call myself Violet.  He smiles at me a lot when I am Violet and laughs with me.

  • Part 4"I think I'll make myself a cup of tea.   Would you – oh, silly of me. You can't, of course. I forgot for a moment there." / "I could, you know," I told him. "Hey, sexbot, remember? Of course I can swallow. Giles, why have your ears gone red?"

  • Part 5 - I walked a little way along the street and saw Spike and Buffy. They were kissing. Everything went black and I fell down.   It felt as if my motherboard had been ripped from my body.   I shut down and stopped thinking.

  • Part 6 - "Perhaps I'm Randy's girlfriend," Joan and I say together. We turn and glare at each other. Everyone laughs.

  • Part 7 - Xander's own superpower is strange. Randy felt a terrible pain in his head when he hit Xander, worse than the pain Xander felt, but he didn't feel any pain when he hit Joan and nobody else felt any pain when they hit Xander. Except Xander. It puzzled everybody and pretty much brought a halt to the sparring session, because Xander was getting fed up of everybody hitting him, but now Randy and Joan think that Xander can reflect any pain a vampire causes him back on the vampire only worse. I agree. It would be a good superpower for a vampire hunter.

You win the piƱata for hunting down those links for #5! It's good to have current links to older works since even if they were recced before they're frequently not found at the same places.

OMG! So many of my favorites! These are some of the very, very crucial fics from the 'verse. IMHO. I might not have read the Wes one, yet, so there's something new to me, too!
