    Default Newbie looking for old FanFic

    Hello there,
    my name is Nicho and i'm looking for slash Fan Fiction about Buffy and Spike that predates their relationship in the original show. I've been a fan of the show for quite a while now and always loved how the show's producers were always interested in its fans and that fans around the show are still actively engaged with it. I'm currently writing my Bachelor Thesis about how fan fic can have influence on the development of TV series, so I want to look how the Buffy and Spike pairing was present in fan writings before it got written into the show and became part of the original canon.
    Maybe there are some people here interested in fan fiction and can help me out with that?! It's not exactly easy finding fan writings that are around 15 years old...any help is appreciated!
    Thanks a lot!

    No it has to be a mod with admin powers I suspect.

    I've sent a message to Ehlwyen about this thread. I did share messages with her earlier in the year, so I know she visits on occasion.

    Oh, thank you for the recommendation. I find it fascinating to read Spuffy fanfiction from the early days, long before we got their journey through season 5, 6, 7 and in the comics after that.

    The crew* can do that. Sadly enough I've not seen any of them around recently.


    *Admins and the moderators who moderate in this specific subforum. I can only do it in the Fanart section

    Thanks Nina. I know I've said it before, but it is sad that the Admins and Mods aren't around anymore

    Hey - at least the leave the forum up!
    Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments...The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

    I`ve read this and I really loved it. It was interesting to read a Spike who has been written pre-Fool For Love. It`s still Spike but some layers are missing. But it is a very good fic (Buffy runs away post becoming Part 2 and meets Spike, who has been dumped by Dru).

    I`d be very interested in reading more "old" Spuffy fics, but it is often difficult to know, when they were written. This one doesn`t have a date and AO3 went online after the show was cancelled. Fanfiction.net has been online for a longer time but I find it so difficult to search for fics there. I don`t really like that site.

    How did you know Mortal Enemies was written as early as 1998? Do you know more Spuffy fics, that have been written before Spuffy was canon? Pre-Spmething Blue or at least pre-season6?

    I am going to post this in the Spuffy fanfiction recommendation thread as well.

    Hey, flow!

    I've got a lot of links to very old Buffy fan fiction sites that were present in the first years of the show - I can look through them and see if there's some really old Spuffy. I do recall one story that I looked at written during Season Two - and I almost fell off my chair because Spike falls in love with Buffy and runs off to get his soul back so she'd be able to love him. I believe it dated to when The Dark Ages aired - it was probably written shortly after Spike's third episode on the series, Lie to Me. So that's very early on - November of 1997 - that someone apparently guessed the whole plot line of souled Spike of Season Seven. I guess it was always pretty obvious.

    If you like, I'll look through my huge list of Buffy fan fic links to really old websites. I don't know if it's okay to post them here (Wayback Machine stuff) but I'm happy to PM you if that's not allowed. I've privately collected over 10,000 fics from every website you can think of plus a lot of really old ones from sites that don't even exist anymore on the Wayback Machine, so if there's something you're looking for, I may have it! I've converted them all to either PDF or Word and I'm happy to share them privately. I was involved in some pretty major research a few years ago concerning fandom and I amassed a ton of stuff along the way.

    Hey American Aurora,

    it would be simply wonderful, if you could find that old Spuffy fic you`ve mentioned or any other older Spuffy fanfic. The number of fanfics you´ve mentioned is really amazing. Are they all BtVS fanfics or are they from other fandomy as well? We have posted wayback machine links on this board before. I don`t think, there is a rule against it (or maybe we just haven`t noticed it ). But you can of course send me links via pm as well.

    I am really excited about this!
