Challenge: 285
Season:Season 6
I want to write this myself but i dont think i'll ever get around to it. No harm in letting someone else try.

Premise is simple: What if Joyce didn't die?

I figure the rest of season 5 carries out pretty similar to canon, except Joyce is alive during it- you can elaborate more on this or just say everything went the same as the show.

The fic should be set in season 6 (with a bit of season 5 if you do want to go from before she dies in the show). Buffy still died and the gang still bought her back (with Spike and Dawn still not knowing they were going to - your choice if Joyce knows but I figure she wouldn't).

See i think season 6 may be quite a bit different if Joyce was around. Buffy will still struggle to adjust to being back, but she won't have the extra worries. I'd like to see how the Buffy/Spike relationship would have altered if Buffy wasn't *so* depressed- hopefully it be a bit more healthier, or if not then Buffy being called on how unhealthy it is (such as say, Joyce noticing Buffy and Spike's matching bruises and cuts, or Spike's bruises after 'Dead Things').

Apart from that, run with it.

Things i'd like to (but dont have to) be included:
- Spike/Dawn friendship and maybe Spike/Joyce friendship.
- A mixture of angst, drama and fluff. I dont think just because Joyce is alive everything would be perfect but there would be more chance for some happiness admist the lows.
- Make it a long fic, include everyone and everything.
- A happy ending.
- Lots of Spuffy interaction and Spuffy lovin'.

Have fun and do let me know if you take up this challenge.

Season:Season 6
Instead of Buffy and Spike going the violent sex way and keeping Dawn and the other scoobies apart from Spike, try this. You remember how in the Dracula episode buffy could sense more strongly when she drank his blood, what if when buffy tastes Spike's blood (however that may happen, preferrably non-sexual at first) she is able to feel his emotions, thus slowly opening herself up to her own emotions.

Buffy has been told by Giles that Slayers cannot have babies. She finds out differently, that Slayers can only be impregnated by master vampires. With the help of Willow, she does a spell to bring loads of vampires to Sunnydale. Guess who the spell drags to Sunnydale looking for the Slayer?

Must haves:

1. Big cover-up by the Watchers Council. (Basically the Watchers Council are our bad guys.)
2. Spuffy with a bite.
3. Spike, like when he first popped up on our tv. Cocky and evil to everyone, except this time, not to his Buffy.
4. Spike being older than the master, and rich.
5. Spike discovering what the Slayer wants and can't wait to get started.
6. Willow like she was in season six. (The only thing is she's not homicidal, just really protective of Buffy.)
7. Keep them together.
8. NC-17 (Lots of smut)

Can haves:

1. Willow and Tara
2. Xander and Anya
3. Xander being an ass and helping the Council try to make Buffy lose the baby. (Abortion pills, drugs, etc.)
4. Giles believing in the Council but changing his way by the end.

Must Haves
1. Poor Spike is sooooo not interested :P


Something Blue-ish by Lenore (complete!)

Challenge: 273
Name:Kyra Storm
Season:Season 7
I was thinking about writing this, but I'll never have time.

A dark fic, set after Empty Places. The First uses Buffy's absence to bring out the darkness in Giles, Anya, Faith and Willow. After using her friends to defeat her, The First tells Buffy that if she will consent to join it, it will send Dawn away to another dimension where she can be happy, otherwise it will torture their souls for eternity. Buffy reluctantly agrees, and she is made Queen or Ruler Over the Hellmouth, with Spike as her King/Mate.

The story should start a year after this. Sunnydale looks like a hell dimension, Buffy and Spike???s reach extends throughout most of North America. Spike is just returning, with the AI team in chains, after having been gone for months hunting them.

The story should be about even in the darkest places true love can survive and triumph. Buffy and Spike rely on each other and take comfort in each other, the perfect team, but it shouldn???t be too saccharine.

All of the Scoobies are out to destroy Buffy and Spike???s relationship for one reason or another. The actions of the Scoobies should be very twisted and sick. It should be noted that they go to excesses that Spike never even dreamt of when he was the Big Bad.

Must Have:

Giles, back to being Ripper, torturing, dominating or brain washing the SIT's so they become obedient Slaves.

Willow is slightly mad from her power addiction.

Anya is a Vengeance Demon again and she turned Xander into a demon, but keeps him as her pet on a leash.

Faith desperately trying to seduce Spike. She was on the mission with Spike to capture Angel and she tries to get Buffy to think something happened between them.

While both Buffy and Spike are bad, they aren???t completely evil, their love protects them from that.

Illyria is with the AI team, so season 5 Angel happened without Spike???s reappearance there.

Can Have:

Hot reunion sex between Spike and Buffy (bitey, of course)

Ethan working with Giles.

Amy as Willow???s manic disciple (think Renfield).

Riley???s head hung on a pike as a warning to others who try and stop Spike and Buffy. Maybe other Initiative soldiers hanging with him.

Angel being turned into Angelus.

Faith being turned by Angelus.

Illyria helping Buffy and Spike escape to be with Dawn, where they can be happy.

Buffy giving up or losing her soul when she joins with the first.

Spike asking for his soul to be taken away as well.

Giles ???breaking??? Kennedy.

Revelations of the Surprising Kind

We all think we know the characters of the buffyverse. But do we know them really? What if some of them aren???t what they seem?

In this challenge, you have to select one character from the show, preferable Buffy or Spike (but can be anyone or more then one person) and have them reveal that they aren???t who we thought they are. This revelation causing shock in the group, and also helps bring Spike and Buffy together at the end.

Must Have

1) The secret should be humorous somewhat. The more crazy, the better. For example, Buffy reveals that she is infact Mrs. Buttersworth.
2) You must explain how the character hid their true identity without magic. For example, let???s say Buffy reveals she???s really Mrs. Buttersworth. You must explain how she changed her looks without the aid of magic. Make it far fetched and out of left field.
3) If Buffy or Spike is the one with the secret, the revelation should cause the other to come to them and admit their feelings. For example, if Buffy is Mrs. Buttersworth, Spike should tell her that it???s ok to be a syrup bottle.

Can have

1) Xander freaking out
2) Riley or Angel bashing
3) Anya admitting that she knew the secret all along and that being _____ means better orgasms.

The challenge is in fact the fic i wanted to write but never get beyond general idea.

Canon till season 2 and goes AU with Spike's first arrival to Sunnydale.

Spike is alone - Dru dumped him a while ego. He came to fulfil the prophecy - to find a mother for his heir who will help him start his own clan, stronger than every clan ever known. The mother can only be a Slayer. And she must cooperate!

Must have:
- Spike being really evil at the beginning of the story but getting softer under Buffy's touch
- Spike finding a way to blackmail Buffy to cooperate, maybe kidnapping somebody precious to her (NOT JOICE!)
- impregnation requiring multiple intercourses, not just one (how many - your choice)
- Spike being Buffy's "first one"

- lots of angst but rather happy ending
- lots of Spuffy smut (OF COURSE!)

Can have:
- some dark and scary fertility rituals
- some sex on the verge of consensual, but not rape
- bloodsucking and claiming
- Buffy not getting pregnant because prophecy was fake (W&H might be involved)
- if you pick the one above, also Spike knowing at some point that the prophecy was fake but not telling Buffy because he enjoys the situation more and more
- Angel or Angelus, if you find a place for him, but make him go away soon
- Xander being an ass and showing his disgust of what Buffy decided to do
- Spike being Master Vampire with minions, fancy mansion as a lair and all that stuff

Can't have:
- character death, except maybe Angelus
- Darla
- actual rape
- Spike/Angel (Angelus)
- Kendra
- open-minded Giles, at least not form the beginning

Challenge: 249
Season:Season 6
What if Darla came to Buffy and Spike instead of to Angel with her pregnancy. How would this affect the Spuffy relationship? Show how this little difference would affect seasons 6/7 of BTVS and seasons 3/4 of ATS.

1. Spuffy, of course. Preferably bitey, but doesn't have to be.

2. Keep Connor's name just so keep the confusion down.

3. Tell Riley to go to hell.

Challenge: 248
In all realities so far the Powers have made Buffy and Spike fall in love. It hasn't worked out in any of them, for the two or their worlds. So in this world the Powers decide to make it exactly what Buffy always said it was lust pure and simple and sweet as sin, violent as animals lust. From the first time they meet, they literaly tear each others clothes off to get to each other. Pick a season and awaaaaay we go.

Back story, or story points must haves.

1. Buffy never slept with Angel, Angel leaves Sunnydale over the jealousy over Spike/Buffy sex.
2. Dru was healed but left Spike for the same reason.
3. Buffy and Spike still swear they are going to kill each other, but no one believes them anymore :P

Challenge: 247
Dru has been dust for about 50 years and Spike has gotten emotionally harder since then.

He sees Buffy just after she was called and decides that this Slayer will be his new 'toy'.

After burning down the school gym and being sent to an institution, Buffy starts getting 'visits' from Spike. He trains her into seeing him as her 'Master'. By the time Buffy gets out of the institution, she is mostly submissive to Spike. The only thing sexually he hasn't done to her is intercourse (vaginal or anal). And he only inflicted pain in ways that appear to be self-inflicted. Spike has Buffy thinking that she is not yet worthy of him taking her completely.

Canon Season 1

Season 2. Spike reinforces his training in Buffy, punishes her for being around Angel and being bitten by the Master. He also finally takes all of her.

I'd like to see an dark romance fic post The Girl In Question.

Buffy POV
R or NC-17.

Spike tries to move on, to be his own man for once.

Buffy knows that Spike's back for a long time and is offended by him not even telling her that. After Not Fade Away she comes back to LA.

Angel dies at the final battle and Buffy is a bit shaken by it. She couldn't really approach Spike on those days. It kills the slightest hope in Spike that she maybe loved him, because of it he tries to push her away whenever she's approaching and doesn't really seem to care about her.( But he does care about her, still has feelings for her, but they're secret yet =D)

Deep down, Buffy's in love with him but it's hard for her to go through her complicate feelings and discover that she loves him. And would she swallow her pride, risk everything she counts on for love?

Spike wants all of her his time. And absolutely not gonna settle for less.

It's author's choice whether to write a happy ending or not. I think he'd finally give in because he's love's bitch. After Buffy learns how to treat him of course=)

And I think it'd be great if it'd be a claiming/bitey fic.

Crossover between BtVS and Lost Boys

?? Spike and/or William in place of Michael
?? Buffy in place of Star
?? Keep all other Lost Boys (that???s Marko, Paul, Dwayne and of course David)
?? Include any other characters from either canon that you see fit???even the Coreys if you really feel like it :)
?? Location???s up to you???Santa Carla, SunnyD, none of the above, whatev.
?? Must be Spuffy, though a convoluted route to that end is okay
?? While bits of story from either canon may be borrowed and scene-stealing is encouraged, try to avoid a simple rehashing of the original LB plot???be innovative with the characters, and try to weave together equal parts of both canons
?? Any length will do, from drabble to saga

Bonus points for the following:
?? Use of the line ???Death by Stereo??
?? Use of the line ???One thing about living in [insert town name here] I never could stomach. All the damn vampires.?? Extra bonus points if you get Giles to say it
?? ???People Are Strange?? by the Doors/Echo and the Bunnymen as background music to any scene

It can be any season or even AR, but my idea is the use of a voodoo doll. Either Spike uses the voodoo doll to get Buffy as his personal slave or Buffy uses it on Spike!

Must Have:
1. Use of voodoo doll to make target change their look (hair, clothes, etc), get piercings, and/or tattoos
2. SMUT! Lots of kinky, bitey SMUT!

Can Have:
1. Angel(us) or Riley humiliation and even death
2. Turning, claiming, pregnancy, etc..
3. Other magic-y fun thrown in the mix?

post Ats While Spike has moved to a new town(pick which one) and owns the coolest night-club in town The Crypt.(he's mad at buffy for sleeping with the immortal and she's mad cos he never called).He's made friends: an ex-vengence demon(think anya), a healer(think Tara) and a gay sc. wiz(think potential love interest for andrew) and ofcourse Clem. Spike and his pals rescue a four yr. old from some demons and the nice lady frm social services convinces spike to adopt him.

What happens when 2 yrs. later it is found that the kid is future champion and Council sends Buffy to collect him. Spike is not going to let go easy. So how's this kid gonna effect spike and buffy's relationship(think kid tantums and stuffed animals)and can they potect him from those who wish to kill the poor kid?

Angel Gunn and Illyria have restarted AI and only come into the story if Angel is married to a newly reincarnated Cordy.

Season:Season 6

Take place before 'As You Were' Buffy and Spike arguing about relationship, turns into fight, still arguing while fighting, the more Buffy says the more Spike blocks hits instead of giving them, the more Buffy talks the weaker her hits are, Buffy starts to cry, then just lamely hitting Spike in chest, confesses she's in love with him then quickly sobs. Spike shocked and not has happy as he thought he'd be, cuz Buffy loving him is obviously tearing her apart. Buffy must then talk about,but not necesarily in this order 1. Being scared of being deserted by another mad she loves (dad,angel,riley,giles) and if Spike left it'd kill her. 2. Must say, "I love you God forgive me I do" -from dracula but I just love that line- to play on her fears loving him will keep her from returning to heaven. 3. Buffy must make Spike swear he'll never leave her..NEVER
Spike must say that again order not important 1. He'll never leave her 2.He'll be good till end of time, no more killing 3.That he'll find a way to get a soul if that's what she really wants. They hold each other and both tear up a bit, after a bit calm down, head back to her house (for some reason they have house to themselves)bitey sweet smut ensues. Afterwards Spike offers to leave so not to be caught by a Scoobie in morning, Buffy refuses saying she's tired of all the lying. Buffy's still scared of everyone's reactions but as long as they're in love she knows it'll all be okay. both say i love you to the other but this time no tears but w/ smiles.

Season:Season 1
Spike has been in a feral state since Drusilla dusted two years ago. He knows that he wants something but not what it is. Spike ends up in Sunnydale while looking for what he wants (love/a mate).

Have Spike find Buffy as she is going to the Master and decide that she will be his mate.

How will this feral vampire deal with the Master biting Buffy?

How will Spike react to Angel and Xander's feelings (lust) for Buffy?

How will Buffy react to a strange feral vampire claiming her?

How will Spike win his mate?

Will Spike go back to normal before or after he claims Buffy? With help from her blood? A spell? Naturally?

Challenge: 238
Season:Season 2
What IF the Iniative had been around in season 2? Drussiala was healed but then Spike instead of being put in a wheel chair is chipped. He escapes at about the time that Angelus emerges. Because of Dru and Angelus treatment he trys to set out on his own and rule Sunnydale. However the scoobs find out that he is unable to harm humans and track him to his lair where Xander is beatin on him, Drusilla then does a spell that is supposed to remove Spike's chip. Instead she brings a Spike from ten years in the future that while no longer chipped has a soul. While he has outgrown his love for Buffy after years of abuse, He has no problem staking Angelus or Dru either.

Must Haves
1. Buffy finding out why he got his soul and falling for him.
2. Xander getting the living shit beat out of him.
3. Dru and Angelus dustage :P

Season:Season 1
"When a Slayer reaches her peak, she unconsciously starts to seek a mate by listening in on people's thoughts to find one suitable to her. Very few Slayer's live long enough to reach their peaks and it doesn't happen to every girl at the same age. But once it does, she will be able to read thoughts until she-she chooses someone, male or female, a-a-and physically mates with them. Then a mental link is-is created between the, er, two so that it is possible for her to want to stay at her peak.

A Slayer's mating is for her life, be it a few days or years, the longer it is, the more you'll start to develop other abilities, such as empathy towards one another or even feeling what the other is physically."

Giles from 'If You Could Only Hear' by Saber ShadowKitten

Challenge is to use this idea to write an in character late Season One - Season Two Spuffy story.

Disclaimer: Origanal idea belongs to Saber ShadowKitten.

Have Buffy a little darker/more primal (Maybe because of her death at the Master's hands)

Don't have Buffy/Angel (At least not Buffy responding to Angel)

Don't have Buffy and Spike give in to the mating easily, have them fight the feelings for awhile.

Spike has the Gem of Amarra but never confronts Buffy. He is captured by the initiative but escapes before he's chipped. Spike comes to Buffy and tells her that she is sleeping with the enemy and that what the initiative is about to unleash will destroy the world humans and demons alike.

Must haves Buffy/Riley, Buffy/Spike, angst, and a happy ending for Spuffy. This should not be a Riley friendly fic overall. Giles gets a shot at Maggie :)

Info for the Challenge: Every Slayer has a link to a Master Vampire that manifests in dreams. No Slayer has ever met the Vamp that was theirs and none every told their Watchers about those dreams.

Have Buffy linked to Spike. A Spike that is fed-up with Dru's 'Daddy' issues.

Without changing the canonverse timeline show how this can change the story.

Will it change Buffy's personality? Her tecnique? Will she look him up in the Watchers Diaries? How will she react when he comes to Sunnydale?

No Dawn in this story!!!
