    I will definitely read it, thank you Double Dutchess, I was only being daft about the orgy. I've read a few Cangel fics and none of them have been really 'great', and I'd just like to read one that's 'unputdownable' because I do like Cangel as a pairing.

    Seconded, "Magpie" is a great story. Not a very cheerful one though!

    "A Little Bit Of History Repeating" kept my interest over several years as a WIP that was *very* slowly updated, so for me it definitely fell into that category.

    Just finished the first three chapters and I'm really enjoying it. Nomelon has captured the voices really well. It feels like an episode of the show; one of the gang has a problem, research needs to be done, high jinx ensues, problem solved. (Although I don't know if the problem will be solved) It's really good!

    I am posting my question about this fic again, hoping, someone has an idea, which story it could be:

    "I think it started in S6 because Xander had fallen on his feet in construction. Willow would draw beautiful buildings, Xander figured out how to build them, and they made a fortune together.
    IIRC, it was a long-standing WIP, and it stopped abruptly just as they were about to go into the final Big Battle at Disneyworld. Or possibly Disneyland.
    If only I could remember either the title or the author."

    Just finished A Little Bit of History Repeating and really enjoyed it. Very well written and a believable build up, with everyone mostly sounding like themselves. I liked the 'adventure' side of the storytelling too, as though it was focused on relationships, it also had other things happening. Thanks for the recommendation Double Dutchess

    Would still like to read a really good Cangel (and only Cangel) fic if anyone knows of a great one?

    Wow, that was fast! I guess it really was a page turner. You're welcome, I am glad you enjoyed it! Can't help you with pure Cangel fic though...

    It isn't one that rings any bells for me either flow. Do you know if it was a Spuffy pairing? It might be worth putting the query up at Spuffy Realm too if so, their find-a-fic thread tends to be pretty good.

    One pairing I have a horror of is Spike/Faith (I get jealous on Buffy's behalf ) So can anyone can recommend me a not-too-long Spaith fic that will make me look at the pairing in a new light?

    Ransomed, Healed, Restored, Forgiven

    I like Anaross, and I enjoy this story. It's post Chosen, with a twist, and has Dawn, Giles, Xander, Angel/Buffy, Faith, Riley, Andrew, Drusilla, and Clem. It's plotty, character driven, and somewhat dark at times. It's pretty long.

    Also by Anaross - Tell Me Something Nobody Knows and The Shearing

    These two are shorter. The usual trope is that Buffy chooses Angel. I don't ship them but the pairing can be a lot of fun.

    Thanks bespangled. I've just read The Shearing, which makes me think I'm in the right mindset to handle a Spaith fic. I do like Anaross so I shall give them a try. I think others have recommended Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven before (TriBel??)

    While I adore Anaross' Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven, it's not for the faint of heart. There's a lot more Buffy/Angel than there is Spike/Faith, and Buffy comes across as being a combination of confused and hard-hearted that's just on the edge of what this Buffy-lover can take. Tell Me Something Nobody Knows might be a better place to start. I really love her unfinished Vampire Walk, which doesn't have some of the hard stuff of RRRF, but, you know: WIP.

    Dutchbuffy has a Spike/Faith series in a 'verse where Buffy dies. It begins in His Voice Is Like a Mars Bar (12,000 words). At some point in the series Dawn and Spike get up to some bad things, which I find uncomfortable, but it has its charms.

    There's a super short one by FemailoftheSpecies, Who's confronting whom anyway? that doesn't go too deep but is interesting.

    Thanks Rebcake. I'm now a bit trepidatious about starting Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven. I am in no way a fan of Buffy/Angel and try to avoid that paring. I'm not sure I can face both Spike/Faith and Buffy/Angel in the same fic, unless Buffy/Angel very unhappy?

    I might start with Tell Me Something Nobody Knows an work upto a harsher fic.

    Pricey, have you run out of Spuffy fanfics to-read? You are always welcome to take some off of my to-read list for me :-)

    I'm hopeful that I'll never run out of Spuffy fics . . . if I do, I don't think I'll be able to go on I just wanted to broaden my horizons, see what else is out there and how other pairings/friendships are written about. There's a whole world out there that has surprised me. I've just read an Ethan/Lindsey fic that worked pretty well.

    Wow, Priceless, Lindsey/Ethan!! I can broaden my horizons if Xander is in the pairing, I have read Xander with everyone including Caleb, Snyder and Graham.

    I think the strangest pairing I have seen, which was a side pairing to Xander/Spike and Angel/Wesley, was Buffy/Anya. I really, really can't imagine that pairing ever happening! I can see Buffy with Faith, Willow, Tara.... but not Anya.

    Buffy/Anya isn't one I've come across yet, but if I do I'll certainly give it a read. There are so many odd pairings out there, and threesomes, even one or two foursomes.

    I have read Spike with so many different people, I'm a bit dulled by it. I don't think I can read another Spike/Angel pairing for a while, I need a break from that.

    I would not say that Buffy and Angel are happy in RRRF, no. Airless and unsatisfying is how I would put it.
