    I've just scanned it - I apologise for this - my reading hasn't done justice to the writing. GoSpuffy - can you confirm this:
    Spoiler:
    Is she 87 and menopausal? I ask this because, TBH, I never noticed my own menopause (except for the obvious).


    flow: It's very different - might be a good idea to put it on the group read list. It's incredibly well written.

    Done! It's rather short. Maybe we could squeeze it in for the next date (which isn't scheduled yet).

    I've not read it, and probably won't get around to it soon, so I'd be happy for it to be put on the book club reading list. At least that way I'd definitely attempt to read it

    OK, this is a Spuffy fic I'd recommend set in season 9 (I'm always on the hunt for Spuffy fics set in the comic seasons). This is from Spike's POV, set at the party, by Gryfndor Goddess. It's the prequel to a Slaymesoftly fic:

    Picture Perfect: https://gryfndor-godess.livejournal.....html#comments

    Slaymesoftly's sequel to this is The Morning After:https://www.bloodshedverse.com/stori...pters&no=13228
    Both really short, easy reading.

    I loved class protector by ginger. It hit all the right notes for me. It takes place at sunnydale high's 20th grad reunion.

    I am reading The Darkling by OffYourBird at the moment and enjoying the hell out of it. Of course, if I'm enjoying a Spuffy fic, it means it has Spike/Xander friendship It's Scoobies-friendly, which is great, and I love the character voices. It's not completed yet, but it gets regularly updated, so hopefully the author will finish it soon.

    I am glad to hear you recommend it, Sosa Lola. I am dying to read it but I want to wait until it's finished. I want to binge-read it then :-)

    Thanks for sharing Sosa Lola! I don't care about WIP so I'll happily check this out, I love Spike-Xander friendships in Spuffy fics too!

    The idea behind this fic is something I've been thinking about for a while, so it was such a wonderful surprise to see someone else writing that fic, and she did it justice better than I would Her dialogue is better than mine, especially her Spike and Xander scenes, there's no sentimental mush whatsoever, but you know that they care about each other.

    I second Sosa Lola's recommendation. I started reading The Darkling around 20 chapters back, when I thought it was almost finished. Boy, was I wrong! But it does get updated weekly, so I can deal with reading it as a WIP (which I normally don't do).

    I'm loving Twinkles' work I don't care about WIPs so a S12 fic is a treat for me, I've read the first bits and it's amazing. I loved her Drabbles fic before and everything by her that I've ever come across has been fabulous.

    Spoiler:
    I like how she's used the same dialogue and scenes but with added depth. (I *love* how she's written the Spuffy hug in #1 and the romance is <3! Kind of how I felt about Dactylgirl's fiction set in S10, my other favourite.) She has a unique style and I like how she's respectful to the characters. This will be an absolute treat to go through, it's great news that it's now complete!

    I think GoSpuffy said it is complete now above.

    I'll definitely add this to my list of fics to read but I want to get to the Dawn/Spike fic when I finally finishing Fixing the Factors. I'm accepting of S12 and see the positive potential between them but it will be fun to read an alternate season 12. I was going to say 'a Spuffy angled one' but honestly, I really do see that in the canon S12 so much time was given to their relationship/feelings. So yeah, an alternate Spuffy S12 with, I expect, a more overt/concluded romance.

    EDIT: I just saved a copy. I like the notion that the writer has looked to use the canon dialogue/events and just fill in to swing things more openly. It'll be interesting to read for sure.

    It's complete - I've read the first chapter and glanced at the end - I think it's "Priceless Safe". The end's rather marred by the fact she's chosen to show the last frame of the comic but otherwise...

    TBH, the only way they could improve S12 for me is to put it through a shredder but this looks the next best thing.

    Yep, it's complete now.

    All I can say is, I'm really loving it, and it doesn't actually make me want to change anything about S12, it just reinforces the positives

    Plus, I really love this author! Twinkles is incredible. Squee!
