    I personally loved Dark Kisses, I love when the main characters are the flawed ones who do questionable things more so than when the side characters are the villains. The Buffy/Angel marriage was so interesting and I felt a lot of sympathy for Angel. Cordelia was amazing in the story, she was such a bitch to Xander and I really hoped they'd end up together but I knew midway through the story that it was not going to happen.

    I can understand that. I liked it, because I love Sigyn's work, she always writes difficult and complicated stories, but I agree that at points every character is pretty unlikable, accept maybe Joyce

    I have read Dark Kisses while she was still writing and uploading it and now I think of it as many little pieces instead of a story :-) I have to re-read it, to find out if there if all the peices fit together. But I liked the general idea of writing Bangel in to a Spuffy fic and I liked most of the characters. I absolutely loved the scene with the shadows on the wall. Yay Sigyn!

    Has anyone ever read The Book of William by Lizerrrbeathan? We read Adieu, A Dew, I Do in the discussion Group with very mixed Responses and then I read several of her other fics. Some of them were great, some of them were okay and one of them i could not get into at all. Oh, and one of them had the most horrific ending, I have ever read in a Spuffy fanfic.

    The Book Of William was the last of her stories on my to-read-list. It is a wonderful story about love and souls and free will and reading it simply made me happy. If anyone else has read it, I would love to hear, what you think about it. I don`t think it can be found anywhere on the internet anymore but Stoney was so kind to send me a copy and if anyone is interested, IŽll be happy to do the same for you.

    Is anybody reading Hindsight by Toften? I initally started skim-reading it on Ao3 but restarted it on EF. So far, I am really enjoying it, especially its depiction of Buffy.

    Chance Encounter by redeem147- It's a very slight story, about Buffy/Spike and Angel/Nina, but I did enjoy it, there are some sweet moments. I've never been interested in Angel/Nina, but this fic made me like them

    I have glimpsed into the first chapters when it was published on EF. It has been highly praised on EF and the writer is already member of the month :-). I liked it so far but I usually don`t read WIP`s. I have to read the complete story in one go otherwise I forget what happened in the previous chapter. That`s why I am now waiting for it to be completed.

    ETA: Pricey, I am just reading "Blood of the Sire" by BuffyMeetsSpike. It has your favorite Buffy-has-to-care-for-Spike-trope and I was asking mysel, if you already know it. It is well written and has a road trip too, which is one of my favorite settings but sadly it also has a lot of Xander and Willow bashing. Giles gets his share as well, but he is far away in England and his absence spares him a few of the blows.

    It is on bloodshedverse:

    Blood by tei - it's more a story of menstruation than anything else, but well written and different to any other Spuffy fic I've read

    - - - Updated - - -

    Rendezvous by Eurydice72 - a sweet and simple story, mainly about William and Giles, only 5 chapters.

    I read Blood some years ago and although I don't remember the details, I know I thought it was good.

    Hi SpuffyGlitz,

    no The Book of William is a fic by Lizerrrbeathan that is set Post-ATS season 5 (which ended a bit differently). The title refers to a book that gets mentioned in the fic without playing a major role. The fic is for most parts a William-fic or maybe a Wuffy-fic but (most of it) in our present time. It is very difficult to describe the plot without giving too much away. Lizerrrbeathan has a very unusal style of writing. You will either love it or hate it. The fic is no longer archived on the internet but if you want to read it I can send you a wordfile via email.

    If you are looking for a fic about the history of Spike, then maybe you`d like to read Lydia`s thesis on Spike. You can find that on AO3:

    Wow this is amazing, thanks flow! I like reading fics about Spike's history, and I also like Wuffy fics! So I shall first dip into Lydia's thesis from your link. After that maybe I'll ask you about the Book of William (Wuffy sounds great!) if I'm fast enough and not too distracted by the comics lol.

    Thanks again

    What I want to know is - a) why is this thesis 80,000 words shorter than my own and b) whether reading it is the equivalent of watching paint dry (mine was)?

    SpuffyGlitz

    Have you read any of Lizerrrbeathan's work?

    Edited to say - Damn! It's much more interesting than mine. Does it have pictures in the Appendix?

    @TriBel, no, I haven't. Is she like DactylGirl? Will I like her, do you think?

    EDIT: Woops, just re-read your post. I take it you've read her work and found it a bit wordy? eta: your turn of phrase made me laugh out loud

    As a reference point, I didn't enjoy anaross that much in Long Day's Journey, so if it's similar to that I might not enjoy this. I'll just have to hunt for other Wuffy fics in that case...

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think Chapters 5-9 will be where I start
