    Anyway, clearly we disagree on this and that is fine, but I needed to defend it as I have read it through completely and feel strongly that there is more to this than you've seen. (Perhaps the chapters you dipped into were the darkest points?)
    Do you need to defend it from anyone though? I mean I thought this was a fanfic recommendation list, not a 'my idea of a fanfic is better then yours' competition.

    With great respect when it comes to fan fiction, especially that that deals with erotica, the old phrase 'one mans meat is another mans poison' comes to mind.

    I don't know what the mods think, but I hate this list to be peppered with negative comments about others writing, especially as the authors in question aren't in attendance. I recommend that if you don't like something, either give the author in question the relevant feedback direct at source, or just plain don't carry on reading it.

    These babies are hilarious. Ok, probably a bit repetetive if you read more than a couple. But, funny parody slash.

    And now for something a little different.

    Noir by Mad Hamlet

    This is exactly what the title suggests, it is Buffy Noir. The tale is told first person by a mysterious man in a trenchcoat who smokes entirely too much for his own good. The imagery is rich and compelling. It's one of my favorite pieces of Buffy fic ever. It is very simple and very short. No big hidden meanings or morals. Just a simple taste of a dark seedy world.

    The Spectrum Series by Mad Hamlet

    A harsh forth season fic. The tale is told, again first person, from the points of view of several primary characters in the series. Spike, Buffy, Giles, Xander, and Willow all have their moment in the spotlight. The voices are crisp and compelling. The nature of the piece might put some of you off. The subject, make no mistake is a difficult one, and perhaps slightly overwrought. The subject is rape. It is, however, handled with a degree of sensitivity that compelled me to ask the author if he had any personal experience. It was perhaps a bit insensitive of me, but then I am, so...I made my apologies and moved on.

    Be well!

    I read a fic a while back that is quite a bit different from the norm. It's a futuristic piece that goes AU after "The Gift." After dieing while closing the portal, Buffy stays dead until... The story begins.

    Phoenix Burning by Yahtzee

    Before I, myself, started reading the fic, I wasn't expecting much from it. Something about it being futuristic gave me a sour first impression for some reason, but despite that, I read the first couple chapters and got hooked right away. With 24 chapters in all, this is truly a piece worth reading.

    Since this thread seems a bit dead in the water, I thought I'd post up a few rec's....

    shapinglight on lj has posted up her fic for the 'plot_wout_porn' fic challange com. It's a rip roaring adventure set against an icy backdrop. A superb read as per...

    It's in five parts starting over here...(Spike/Buffy/Wesley) Rated G.

    http://community.livejournal.com/plo...44.html#cutid1

    And whilst we're on the travel theme, there's also girlpire's new fic 'Terror aboard the Persehone'. To quote shapinglight's description, "A stirring tale of derring do (and derring don't) aboard a Wolfram & Hart cruise ship, set in AtS season 5. Utterly hilarious and wonderful."

    Parts 1 & 2 are up already. Her work is always a must read.

    http://girlpire.livejournal.com/179280.html

    Then there's also hello_spikey's wonderful 3 part fic 'The Soul Drinker' (Cast of AtS season 5. Rated G)

    WIP, R, 21 chapters so far/ post-NFA, comics-compliant. Spike wrote a letter to Buffy before the final battle in Not Fade Away. What happens when Buffy finally discovers Spike is back from the great beyond? Plotty tale with many twists, turns and surprises.

    PG-13, WIP, 12 chapters so far. AU post-Entropy. Anya's newlyfound ability to grant wishes results in both Spike and Xander turning into women. Comedy gold ensemble piece.

    http://cindergal.livejournal.com/318...le=mine#cutid1
    WIP, 4 chapters so far, PG13, post-Intervention. To stop Glory, Buffy and Spike travel back in time to 1976 London. They have a surprising encouinter with somebody they both know... Intriguing plot, srarkling humor and spot-on character voices.

    Anticipation by 2writers4spike (aka mabel_marsters & dawnofme)
    http://www.livejournal.com/tools/mem...ion&filter=all
    Completed several days ago. NC-17. After completing his trials in African cave, Spike finds himself back in 1977, reeling from a newly acquired soul. Meanwhile, in Sunnydale, Dark!Willow sends Buffy back into the grave... Promising start for what looks like an intriguing plotty fic.

    http://3xcereal.livejournal.com/tag/fic:+l+is+for...
    Completed, PG, post-HLOD. Buffy and Spike get bitten by Luxuria, the lust demon, and start having sex all the time. What happens when the effects wear off?

    Default I will always remember you (Other ending)

    After watching the episode of IWARY i felt really bad.
    And i thought there really should have been a way buffy should remember the day wich was never there.Or at least angel should have told buffy about that day at some point.I mean after watching the seventh season of buffy i stil remebered IWARY.And i think it was bad that even in the end of season 7 angel didn't tell her what happened to him and buffy in IWARY.

    But i found this fanfic of a fanfic writer called cynamin and all rights of the story belong to her so im only ging to post the link here.
    I think this person is a really good writer and he/she really knows how to put all the characters on the paper properly

    This fanfic link contains a other ending for IWARY and is for the people wich really hated the end of IWARY and would like to see a other ending just for their own comfort :P

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/32553/1/Remember_to_Breathe

    She wrote many more stories also and for as far as i can tell they are all really good.
    I hope i can make some people happy with this post.

    Default Fics I recently read and loved.


    Still Famous
    by amyxaphania
    http://amyxaphania.livejournal.com/t...:+still+famous
    Completed, Pg-13, Post-Damage. Andrew posted a report about his encounter with Spike in L.A. on his videoblog. Spike discovers that his newly-found fame makes women want to have his babies, and he wants to "go nerd-hunting" - to find Andrew and knock some sense into him. Meanwhile, Buffy is determined to go to L.A. to confront Spike over his return from the dead. Funny, fluffy reunion fic.

    The Game by amyxaphania
    http://amyxaphania.livejournal.com/tag/fic:+the+game
    WIP, 2 chapters so far. PG-13 Set between seasons four and five. Romance/Humour/Adventure. Buffy and Spike find themselves in another dimension; local PTB force them to compete against each other in a race of logic, wit and strength. As the finish line draws closer, will they find themselves getting closer, too? Inventive plotting and good character voices.

    Memento Mori by rahirah (Barb C)
    http://rahirah.livejournal.com/415965.html
    One-shot, future!verse, PG. This story takes place in the Barbverse and takes place a few weeks after POM, and a week or so before "The Devil and William Pratt." Spike and Buffy talk about Druzilla. Bittersweet.

Another house guest arrives that causes a rift between Spike and Buffy, but they do their best to help Andra while coping with their own problems.

    Just Desserts by rahirah (Barb C)
    http://rahirah.livejournal.com/418297.html
    One-shot, PG, humor. Barb!Verse. I won't spoil the plot - it's less than 500 words, read yourselves, - but it's hysterically funny!

    Hey, anyone know where I can find decent fanfiction centered around Xander,possibly without him getting a companion or superpowers or military training or possesed or going to africa. Possibly with him striking out on his own for a while. Mostly a journey of self discovery. I tried I Need A Parrot and XanderZone but it's mostly out dated stuff. Bonus points for good grammar and punctuation.

    ChaddyMan1 - try NWHepcat's stuff - she writes great Xander stories.

    ****

    I just finished reading a fic Some Enchanted Evening by speakr2customrs and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5446939/...hanted_Evening
    One-shot, PG, during All the Way. For Halloween, the Trio decided to repeat Ethan Rayne's trick with enchanted costumes. The result was quite unexpected... A brilliant and funny re-imagination of BtVS mythology; a smart culturological essay on the BtVS influences and roots; seemingly fluffy "what if" that reflects on notion of a hero and ponders how this is the line that separates heroes from villains. The idea behind Andrew's transformation is particularly inspired

    I read those as well. I was looking for something newer, fresher, like has anyone read season 8? Have any fanfiction writers done their interpretations of the comics? I'd really be interested in how they feel about characters development so far, maybe even reveal who they think Twilght is. That's one thing I've always enjoyed about fanfiction, all the odd scenario's.

    Well, our own Sosa Lola (aka Lusciousxander) wrote a beautiful post-Chosen story, A Girl with a Purpose, about Xander and Renee.

    http://community.livejournal.com/spring
    with_xan/130079.html

    I loved that story a lot.

    I don't remember any fics dealing with the identity of Twilight. You may try to look through LJ community Newly_Legion, dedicated to Jossverse comics - maybe you'll find something of interest.

    http://community.livejournal.com/newly_legion/

    I don't know if you like Spander pairing, but if you're okay with it, then I'd love to rec Longest Day Ever by Shadowscast. Outstanding story, with smart premise and inventive execution. You can blink through sex scenes - they're not essential for the plot

    http://community.livejournal.com/fal...sx/198574.html

    It takes place in season 7 and re-imagines Groundhog Day from Andy McDowell's POW (Xander is playing Andy's role).

    Seriously, it's easily the best fic I read recently.

    Hi, does anyone have any good recs for SN Dean/Castiel slash? I am particularly interested in stories that start with Canon and go towards a relationship...don't like slash that starts with the relationship already going as the getting together is the most important part for me!
