Season:Season 7
Alternative of 07x15 Get it done

Buffy doesn't turn down the offer of power but she won't have just any demon "becoming one" with her. The Shadow Men offer compromise. They would bring one demon she knows. She can choose between Angel or Spike and chooses Spike. They will do the ritual as it was in original episode. The ritual should help her defeat The First so a massive boost of power. Plus she should know everything Spike has done as demon. The ritual isn't permanent after they defeat The First Evil Buffy and Spike's demon will separate but the whole thing will alter the slayer line. From this time on every active slayer will have "bonded" vampire..they just have to find each other. (yep Spike is Buffy's)

Can have:
Spike's soul will stay in his body and is up to you if he wakes up or not.
While "merged" with Spike's demon Buffy can have some appearance changes as fangs or yellow eyes. 

Can't have:
Spike dying

What if a pissed off Spike runs into Tara and Dawn just as they are heading home, and he ends up telling Tara about the kisses Buffy had initiated, and then the way she promptly acted like he was a raving lunatic for even thinking she’d do it again. Tara asks him to tell her what led up to each kiss, and when he finishes, she points out that each time he had been leaving, and that maybe Buffy was afraid he would leave her, and that perhaps Buffy is afraid to love him, since everyone she loves, leaves. Tara tells him that Buffy’s aura is the same lost and confused color it had been when she first came back, only tinged now with anger.

Probably Post Chosen/AU but any season works. Total crack fic! The gang winds up in Cleveland (can be because of the hellmouth or not your choice). But the demon or whatever they are after is apparenlty working for or hiding on the set of Jerry Springer! (The show is based and taped there) The gang winds up as guests on the show.  You can have any "surprise guest" you want. From Angel, Riley, Dru who ever you want. If it before season 2 then Angel would be there and Spike would be the surprise guest. You get the idea. Let them all wave their freak flag high and all their dirty secrets come out! Spuffy ending of course, but how you get there is all your own.

You pick the season and the guests. But please no whipped puppy Spike, no matter the season. If it's post soul then have him be his own man. If it's pre soul he can be evil or not. Your choice.

Everyone is fair game from both shows.

Glory’s mojo was tearing down the walls between dimensions, around the same time Angel and company were opening portals to Pylea. What would have happened if Buffy, Spike and Dawn had fallen off of Glory’s tower into the vortex and the three of them had wound up in a different dimension? Maybe even Pylea? The fact that Buffy fell through closed the portal Doc opened stopped the apocalypse and Giles killed Ben just like before.
Spike got thrown from the tower by Doc. Buffy beat the crap out of Glory just like before. But both of them made it back up to the top of the tower. The dimensional rip caused the tower to collapse with the three of them on it. They fell thru the vortex.
Did they wind up in Pylea? Or did they find themselves somewhere else? Do Buffy and Spike still have their powers? Is Dawn still the key? Or is everyone all human? If Dawn is still the key can she get them home? How long will it take? What will happen between Buffy and Spike while they try to find a way home? Can the gang bring them home and how will they find them?
Will Spike like it in the dimension they find themselves in? Will he want to go back? Did they get moved into their corresponding bodies in this dimension? If so did the personalities from this dimension go to the home dimension? What could happen then? Do Alt Dimension Buffy and Spike know each other? Are they a couple where they come from? What would the gang say about that? What about Dawn does she exist in that dimension or was she only created in one dimension? If our Buffy, Spike and Dawn aren’t part of the Alt Dimension how do they survive? How do they explain their appearance in this dimension? Do they stick together?

"A girl is dead because of me."

"And how many people are alive because of you? How many have you saved? One dead girl doesn't tip the scale."

"That's all it is to you, isn't it? Just another body!"


She screams, her guilt and rage exploding, all of it directed at him.

And then she stops. Turns. Continues onward toward the police station.

Suppose that Buffy, fully convinced of her guilt, refuses to allow Spike to stop or distract her, and confesses to killing Katrina Silber to the police. What happens then? Does the Sunnydale police, despite their record for Olympic-class cluelessness, actually conduct an intelligent investigation into the crime despite a confession by a young woman with a history of violence? What does Spike do? How does Dawn cope? How do the Scoobies react? Does this one small alteration dropped into the Buffyverse--a refusal by Buffy to misdirect her fury despite her hopelessness and desperation--cause only tiny localized changes that quickly fade out into the larger story, or does it spread its ripples far and wide?

This is your story, and I make no demands for what you can or cannot have in it. I do hope, however, that 1) the story will remain true to character and 2) actions lead to logical consequences.

I would be happy to beta if you decide to give this challenge a good home. :)

Season:Season 6
During Entropy

When Spike is talking to Anya, he makes a wish that he would forget he slept with Buffy. Anya grants it and his memories are altered so that he only remembers them talking and hanging out and being friends.


Eventually Spike and Buffy get together

Challenge: 498
Season:Season 4
First of all I can't remember if I've posted this before so if I have just take it down. (This site really needs a challenge search engine). And it can be any season it would work in especially if the writer is crafty.

Ok here it is: What if Xander finally lost it and did something in an effort to make Buffy love him only it turned out more like Seeing Red? What if Spike came to the rescue and Buffy finally realized the truth?

Must have: Xander attacks Buffy. Spike saves Buffy.
Can't have: Please as little OC as possible. No easy resolutions either.
Can have: Rape, attempted rape, seriously injured Buffy in need of more then just patching up.

Other then that i'm pretty cool with however you want to write it.
Thanks so much!

Challenge: 497
Season:Season 7
What if the deal Angel made with Wolfram and Hart was a little different? What if they told Angel that they would save Connor but he had to wear the amulet, not take over the law office. If he refuses or let's anyone else wear it the deal is off and the gang and Connor remember everything. They want him gone/usless and coming back as a ghost is perfect. They know dusting him will only make the powers bring him back, but turning him into a ghost is not a problem.

Buffy tries to send him away, but Angel won't let her. She demands to know why and the whole story comes out in front of everyone. I mean everything comes out, Darla coming back, Dru siring her again, the lawyers, sleeping with Darla, Connor, Cordy turning into a higher being, Jasmine all of it.

This makes Buffy really see the differences between the two and how they act and she tells Spike before the battle that she loves him. Angel wears it and the first is defeated.

I would like it if Buffy and Spike both make it out but that is your choice.

Other than the kiss in the temple no Buffy/Angel.

If they both make it out, the gang heads to the Hyperion and sets up slayer central there with the AI gang and the story can end or go from there. Spike getting the Shanshu (a modified version because we know he hates to be weak) would be a bonus. Can't you see Spike on the beach in LA?!

If you want to mention Angel coming back as a ghost go for it. You can even have Fred and Willow try to give him back his body. But by time they do the relationship between Spike and Buffy is solid and he can't break them up.

{I always figured that the Senior Partners wanted Angel to wear the amulet. I mean really they are the senior partners, they had to know that Pavane was in the building and having ghost Angel being hounded by him would probably drive him crazy or at the very least send him to hell. They wanted him out of the way in a bad way.}

Challenge: 496

Challenge: 492
Season:Season 4
Inside the comics there is mention of a Danish Slayer that Spike kills in 1940. But in canon Nikki Wood is the second slayer Spike kills.
What I want is this: Spike kills Sophie Carstensen in 1985 instead and she becomes his third slayer killed. 
Sophie's watcher as revenge kills Drusilla. Spike is lost and he doesnt know what to do with his unlife anymore. He hears about a demon shaman in Africa who grants a wish if you pass his trials.
Spike wants Drusilla back but the shaman cant do it. Spike then ask for a purpose. The demon gives him back his soul and the task of kills demons and vampires for the side of the light.

- Buffy/Riley at first. Nothing too graphic though
- Drusilla brought back by W&H instead of Darla but as vampire
- Scoobies and/or Riley and Angel bashing
- Spike stays in Cleveland for a few years before arriving in Sunnydale

Can't Have.

- A sad or tragic end. I want an happy ending.
- too much angst
- Spike as a whimp and as a "willing slave" to Buffy. He knows who he is and what he wants and doesn't accept bullying or insults from anyone

Challenge: 491
Season:Season 6

This would be a season 6 fic sometime before Seeing Red but after or starting at Dead Things. Buffy finds out that only her body was pulled out of heaven, her soul is still there. Willow messed up the spell and now Buffy is soulless, with no way to retrieving her soul.   

Must have:

1) Spuffy

2) Must be a struggle for Buffy to accept that she is just as soulless but doesn't 'feel' any different then when she was souled.

3) At some point Buffy must deal with the way Angel changes without his soul. (Angel bashing encouraged, not demanded) 

Can't have:

1) No other romantic entanglements for our couple.

2) Spike being a total wimp. He maybe loves bitch but can he please keep his balls?

3) Spike must be undead and kicking at the end of this fic.

4) Please no severe out of character behavior.  


1) A happy Spuffy ending.

2)  UST

3) Assertive Spike with everyone but Buffy. 

Challenge: 490

Spike isn't just any vampire. He's also Angelus and Darla's son. But that's another story. This is the fallout after Buffy & the Scoobies find out. 

Must Haves:
1. Eventual Spike/Buffy.
2. The Fang Gang also discovering this long-held secret.
3. Giles and Wesley discovering a prophecy about a human child born to two vampires.

The order these appear and the rest of it, it's up to you. This can be any season but if you can somehow work it into BtVS Season 5 or 6, it'd be awesome.

Have fun!

Challenge: 489
Season:Season 4
The Initiative put the dreadful chip in Spike's head with the intent to trick his brain into thinking he was in pain whenever he harmed a human being.
However, a little faulty placing goes a long and humourous way. They accidentally connect Spike's chip - not to the pain center of his brain - but the pleasure center. 

No must have's and no restrictions.


Challenge: 488

Challenge: Since before he was turned, Spike has spoken to a Higher Power. Then, one night, this Higher Power makes him an offer he can't refuse.

These are the only rules
1. Spike must be and must remain a vampire
2. Spike/Buffy

The offer can be anything you wish and it can be offered whenever you wish. Or you can pick any of these:

A. Time-Travel AU/AR
               1  Spike is given the chance to fix everything. The catch is - no one except Buffy and/or Giles can see him.
               2. Spike is offered the chance to save Buffy's life by giving up his own life or killing Glory.
               - if he kills Glory, he has to do it by drinking her blood, which has to change him in some way.
               - if he chooses to give up his own life, Spike, like Buffy, ends up in Heaven only to have Willow bring him back from the dead.
               3. Spike is sent back to the night he rose as a vampire to stop Angelus from ever being cursed with a soul and preventing Buffy from ever falling in love with Angel.
B. AU/AR (no time travel)
            Spike is given the offer to become a Higher Power (yet still a vampire - think vampire-god) ....
             1. Just as he walks into the bathroom during Seeing Red.
             2. Just as he starts running up the stairs of Glory's Tower
             3. In the alleyway behind the Bronze after Buffy tells him he's beneath her.
             4. The first time he sees Buffy dancing at the Bronze
             5. After Buffy leaves him in the alley during Dead Things
6. After Buffy and Riley blow up his crypt.
             7. After Buffy dies but before Willow brings her back from the dead.

You don't have to pick any of the options given. But if you wish to combine or mix these options up with your own ideas, feel free.


Challenge: 487
Season:Season 7
I call this the Kill Xander challenge.

The exact season doesn't matter in particular, although 6 or 7 would probably work best. I want to see Xander die and Spike get wrongly blamed for it. I'd like to see Buffy in the position to have to defend Spike's innocence, whether or not she actually loves him yet or not. Can the remaining Scoobies and/or Giles be convinced to go after the real killer, or will Buffy have to choose between Spike and the others. 

Challenge: 486

This would be an AU/AR season 2 story. The challenge is - instead of Drusilla being sick, it's Spike who's dying.

Must Haves:
1. Spike/Buffy!!!
2. Angel caring about Spike and not being a complete bastard.
3. Drusilla coming to Angel and Buffy to tell them about Spike's illness. She has to mention that he was made for Buffy.
4. No immediate falling into each other's arms and bed for Spike and Buffy. Buffy can love the idea of having someone made for her, meant for only her, but she can't fall into his arms and declare her undying love. I want to see some angst over it.
5. Spike slowly getting sicker until it's obvious he's dying.

Can Have:
1. Joyce/Spike friendship.
2. Dawn 
3. Angel losing his soul and/or choosing to sacrifice Drusilla to save Spike's life. This should have unexpected consequences.
4. Souled!Spike (I've chosen to keep an open mind. Souled Spike wasn't really all that different from UnSouled Spike except he was a little less ambiguous  - and I don't think Spike really notices his soul very much).
5. A 'mating' claim between Spike and Buffy and a familial claim between them and Angel.
6. The rest of Spike and Angel's vampire family show up. (Penn, Lawson, James & Elizabeth, and anyone else you wish to make up) to try and save Spike. I would, as an aside, love to see Anyanka/Penn/Xander pairing, but it is by no means necessary.
7. Spike dying at the end. (And, as extra option, evolving into one of the Powers that Be).

Challenge: 485
Someone - say, Andrew, makes a crazy wish that Spike were a sparkly daywalking vampire. A justice demon, or something else, overhears him. As a result, Spike wakes up from a week-long coma back in 1880 as a daywalker who sparkles when he shifts into game-face in the sunlight and with all his memories intact. This, of course, changes everything.

Must Have:
1. Spike thinking he's gone insane because his mother's supposed to be dead, not crying over him because she thought he was dying.
2. Spike hunting down and finding Angelus, who is surprised to smell him as his own Childe. (Make this scene as hilarious as possible with Spike trying to explain himself).
3. Spike eventually resigning himself into reliving it all
4. Despite his best intentions, he still ends up with the title of Slayer of Slayers.
5. This must end up as Spike/Buffy.

1. Pre-Slayer Buffy somehow dreaming about Spike and everything he ever did for her. She, of course, would think he's her soul-mate - but he's not real. So she's settling for Angel until she sees Spike.
2. Alternatively, having Buffy end up her Pre-Slayer Buffy body in the past.

Have fun!!
