Cordelia at Anya/Xander wedding [Nov. 4th, 2015|07:21 pm]

i recently read a story where Cordelia was invited to the wedding and she's there being supportive of Anya after Xander leaves her at the altar. Buffy and Willow, being Xander's friend first, are either not as supportive or seen so. If I recall correctly, Cordy suggests Anya takes the honeymoon herself or invites Anya to LA.

Fic Search, Xander/Angel(us) [Nov. 3rd, 2015|08:45 am]

This is a very old story, and I no longer have a link or any real info on it. Angel(us) and Xander are trapped in another dimension or realm. They end up working together, becoming lovers and/or mates, and rule the place for, I think, thousands of years. Long enough that they pretty much forget Sunnydale and the people there. Then, they are called back for some reason.

It could be related to when Acathla opened and Angel was sent to hell, but I can't be sure about that.

Also, the people, or beings, that Angel and Xander ruled over didn't want them to leave. And I seem to recall X and A standing on a ledge, or balcony, looking over their kingdom and remembering their years there.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I've got a story where Dru turns a watermelon. I have another where Anya had created a pumpkin demon in her vengeance days. Three more stories and I'll have some kind of category for next year's Buffyverse Top 5. Any recs? Any category suggestions for these two?

coffee stories [Oct. 19th, 2015|07:18 pm]

Okay, Buffyverse Top 5 is coming up and I just read a story where Giles owns a coffee shop. I know of another story where Willow works as a barista. So I'm thinking a category of five stories with coffee in them. Know any good fic that fits such a category? I could be encouraged to expand to other beverages. ;-)

Slow developing Spander Recs [Oct. 13th, 2015|09:41 pm]

Hi guys! Since you were so good at recommending sweet Spangel stories where Angel is good to Spike, I thought I'd ask you for some Spander help. I'm a sucker for a long-time-to-develop-feelings Xander POV where Xander wants Spike, woos him, and Spike either has no idea, or the reader doesn't know if Spike knows. I've read a couple of really great examples of this over at http://www.Spanderfiles.com. A perfect example of this is "Its Just a Jump to the Left" by Kimberly A. Fabulous story!! Has me wanting more. But I was wondering, any new or strictly LJ authors write any of these? In so many stories, Spike can smell how Xander feels right away. Takes the mystery out.

Thanks so much for your help! I love this community :-)

Xander-centric AU [Oct. 11th, 2015|06:22 pm]

I read this so long ago I can't even remember where I read it. It might have been on Twisting the Hellmouth, but also could have been ff.net. It was focused on Xander and included some sort of cross-dimensional travel. One of the first places he ends up is Star Trek The Next Generation and he was severely injured and they ended up injecting him with nanobots/nanites that repaired his body and fused it with the travel device that he had so it wouldn't come off. I don't remember everything that happened, but I know that it also crossed over with Highlander and he ended up having some sort of internal mind area where different possessions and quickenings that didn't want to be assimilated went. It was pretty long I think. I've been feeling like I need to read it again, and have tried looking through TtH and ff.net as well as just googling some key words and nothing comes up. Anyone that knows anything about this fic please point me in the right direction! Thank you so much.

Sweet Angelus/William [Sep. 18th, 2015|12:00 am]

Hi! I'm so sorry if this has been asked before. I love Spangel, but notice a trend of Angel or Angelus treating Spike like crap. Either raping, dominating, manipulating, or just being mean. Are there any Angelus/ William fics where Angelus tries to woo William? Are there any where Angel tries to woo Spike? With kind acts? Gifts? Romance? Even if they fight, that's totally ok. But I guess I just get sensitive when Spike gets treated so badly. Do they exist? Btw, I'm so thrilled this group is still around, and that the Buffyverse lives on even 12 years later :-)

Thanks in advance for your help <3

I really want to read some domestic spuffy where they have a life away from the scoobies and sunnydale. Something like Dreams and Desotos by BlodShedBaby. I dont mind if they go back to sunnydale, just please no all human or historical and not too much angst. Thank you very much.

Looking for a specific B/G AU fic [Sep. 4th, 2015|11:12 am]

Hey, looking for a specific Buffy/Giles fic. I last read it around the beginning/middle of the summer. It's an AU starting (I think) in 7x11 when Giles goes to consult Beljoxa's Eye and brings Buffy with him instead of Anya. Buffy asks Beljoxa's Eye why it's in chains and gets sent on a bizarre globetrotting quest to discover the name of this demon in a cave in Africa and its mate (this is the demon that grants wishes if you survive a trial, I think the same demon that gave Spike his soul back) so that when they go ask it for help it won't kill them both.

They take a detour in Romania (Sintesti, I think) to meet up with a Romani wise-woman type connected to Jenny Calendar and Buffy has to tell someone (I think Angel, or possibly someone on the Watcher's Council) that they're going to Bucharest or Budapest to get them off the trail. While in Sintesti Buffy is charged with killing a vampire/nest of vampires that have been taking children from the camp. She tries and fails to retrieve two kids (brother and sister) alive and has to kill the sister (I think). She also meets a really badass college/high-school-age girl from the camp and has interesting conversations with her about internal and external politics in the camp. There's a showdown at a bus stop when she goes to retrieve Romani workers who are coming back from the city.

After Sintesti they get on a plane to the African country where the cave is (Kenya? Nairobi? I forget which) and have to go all the way out into the mountains where there's this village that traditionally guards the entrance to the cave. They stay with an old dude and this orphan kid he took in (the kid is a refugee who ran some ridiculous distance to escape the war zone. He's the fastest runner in the village). Buffy and Giles had previously agreed Buffy would go since she's more likely to survive, but Giles goes while she's asleep and she has to catch up with him at the cave, where she talks the demon down from killing Giles without using its name to bind it. Then she does end up using its name to ask it a question. As they talk it comes out that the demon's mate was captured by the Shadow Men and used to make the first Slayer. She finds out at the end of the conversation that when she did that she forfeited control over it and it could have killed her/refused to talk to her after that, but it didn't because it's fond of her. That's not all I remember but this is already a super-long post, geez.

I cannot for the life of me remember which site it was on or the title or author :( but I loved this fic because, while Buffy and Giles stayed in character and developed a romantic relationship over the course of the story, they made such genuine heartwarming connections with other people and with other demons. Buffy promising to visit Beljoxa's Eye just for company in the future brought a tear to my eye :) not to mention her empathy with the cave demon over his mate's death. This fic also does a stellar job of balancing person-to-person connection and Buffy's genuine, clumsy but well-meaning responses to world travel and culture shock in both Africa and Sintesti. Hope all this rings a bell for somebody.

Wes as a detective, possibly during prohibition [Jul. 16th, 2015|09:01 pm]

I'm looking for a fic. Wes was a detective. Maybe Chicago during Prohibition. It was really good but unfinished. That's all I recall.
