    This one isn't that old, about a year and a half, but it's the kind of AU that I enjoy...it changes your perspective on canon, without throwing it entirely away.
    Cryptwarmer is my friend. I read this story before anyone else I think. She's a great writer.

    And now the story is heading into season 7. Can`t wait to read the rest of it!

    I just read chapter one and I loved it. Dawns reaction was so funny! I'm still giggling. I'll be binge reading this one I think.


    I like who I am when Im with him. I like who we are together.

    Agreed. She can even tempt me to read all-human. Gasp!

    I have read this story. It's so lovely. I miss Cryptwarmer. I haven't seen her around in a while.

    The latest volume of Slayage is out (thanks @Whedonesque) and there is an article on Buffy Fanfiction which might interest some of you

    There's also an article on Xander @Sosa lola

    Click on this link,

    http://www.whedonstudies.tv/

    Then on the line that reads;

    23 May 2018--Slayage, Issue 16.1 ([47] Winter/Spring 2018) Released!

    That should take you to the list of articles. They're academic and I only understand every third word, but I enjoy reading them and I always learn something

    Click on Current Issue.

    It's called "One of your little pop culture references": Argument, Intertextuality, and Literary Affordance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction.

    LOL! Fan of fanfic are "dismissed as socially awkward infantile losers, mindless and uncritical consumers, and fanatics who preferred speculative fiction
    to real life". Yup - that's me! I have got to follow this reference!

    What did you think of her interpretation Sosa Lola? Argh! No need to answer - I've seen it "elsewhere."

    I'd like to recommend Encapsulated by BillieLiar. It's a very slight story, one chapter of just over 3000 words. It sets Spike and Buffy in a place and situation I've never read in a fic before, and I enjoyed that part of it. It's also really sweet and well written imo.

    No Mistakes by TreacleA here https://archiveofourown.org/works/12...pters/28935369

    I think Rebcake recommended it - or mentioned it - on another site. I enjoyed it!

    Aargh! No - another page - not another site. Another page here. Doh!

    This fic has the (questionable) honor, of now being No. 50 on my to-read-list of Spuffy fanfics.

    You have a list? With 50 on? A list...a proper list? You don't just think..."Sod it...I can't be arsed working/cleaning/etc" and then click on a recommendation? Or surprise yourself with a random choice? Sigh...my life's chaotic. A list? A bloody list? I feel inadequate now...

    But you never lie awake at night, thinking "Heck, when will I ever cope to read 50 fanfics? Some of them more than 300k words long? Should I begin in alphatbetical order? Or rather by wordcount? Or by date of publishing....maybe thematically? Sorted by season....?

    Chaotic is better

    Huh! That's nothing - I have my own quandary to keep me up at night. I've just accessed my history on my work computer. Oh. My. God! It's all either here or EF! Do I delete it and risk losing all my passwords or risk leaving it as it is and pass it off as "research"?

    Here's a chaotic choice - based on the writer's name. Never Stay With Spuffy by Bojangles. It made me laugh out loud!

    Argh! I've had to move on to my own lap-top and this damn site makes me log on every 10 minutes!

    For funny, this one rocks: Spike's Demon vs. Pants by ChryshCn

    This might not work for those who hate the Man/Demon split. The demon temporarily takes over the wheel — which is a problem, because the demon has problems with human technology like doorknobs and zippers, and probably wheels, too. But demon doesn't have any problem expressing himself, and he knows who his pack is.
    Weird love is better than no love Buffy Summers
