    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.
    You said the magic word "funny". This is now on my list. And thankfully my bookshelf is empty compared to Flow

    And this one is on as well!

    Am I supposed to be reading something for Friday? I'm currently reading this wanton world by Euyrdice. It's totally off canon but it's definitely Buffy and Spike so therefore okay by me. And I like this writer so there's that too

    I support this recommendation! It is a very funny story.

    In serious fics, I'm generally not a fan of the Man/Demon split (with some exceptions) but in stories like this one I love it.

    SpuffyGlitz I'm sorry but none of your links works for me, would it be possible to tell me who wrote the A Joan And Randy fic so I could look for it myself? Thanks

    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!
    Read this. Enjoyed it a lot. Ending is a tad weak, but i like this story!

    I am reading the sequel to that one at the moment. It`s called Buffy vs William`s shyness. It is very sweet and lighthearted. A demon spell turns Spike into William and Buffy has to seduce him, to get her boyfriend (yes, they are officially dating in season 5!) back.

    http://dark-solace.org/elysian/views...t=ok&warning=5

    I can also recommend Living Conditions by sweetprincipale. Set between season 2 and season 3 Buffy and Spike involuntarily become roommates in L.A.. A lot of spackeling ensues...

    Anyone have recs for Spuffy fics where Spike isn't at all mean/ remote/ indifferent to Buffy and is openly and obviously in love with her? And no other female love interests either from canon or newly invented?

    Just asking because I enjoy fics where Spike is in love with Buffy, he's unsure of how Buffy feels, of course in the end it's revealed she totally loves him back. Not fics where Buffy has to suffer for him, or compete with another girl, or Spike is playing hard to get. Does that make sense? Even just one shots of Spike's POV showing his love for Buffy without any actual happy ending is good for me too.

    I ask because I've been trying to find fics like this but haven't had much luck... Thanks in advance if you can give me a heads up!

    Okay, this is a tricky request. There are probably many fics, that fulfill your requirements, but they are usually "fix it-fics".

    For example, this one

    Anticipation by 2writers4spike
    http://dark-solace.org/elysian/views...t=ok&warning=5

    has a Spike, who travels back in time post NFA, is in love with Buffy, fixes everything and she falls into his arms. I am not really, really a fan of stories like this, because everything is just too easy. But maybe, you give it a try and tell me, if this is, what you are looking for? If so, I could probably name you others like this one. Dozens of them ;-).

    Of course there are different types of stories, that might also be, what you are looking for. This story for example is one of my favorites:

    Centering by PennyDrdful
    http://dark-solace.org/elysian/views...t=ok&warning=5

    It is a road trip fic set post intervention. Buffy knows, Spike is in love with her and they have to go an an adventure trip. Well written, funny and fluffy.

    Again very different is this fic:

    Ketchup and the Crocodile by yellowb [R]
    http://dark-solace.org/elysian/viewstory.php?sid=5578

    Post-Bargaining Buffy leaves for N.Y, where Spike finds her. This one is very low-key, bittersweet and melancholy. But it is Spike in love with Buffy and winning her over - really slowly though. It has a happy ending but not a fireworks and pink cotton candy ending.

    Let me know, what you think!

    Thanks so much, flow! I'll probably enjoy the last one the most. This is awesome! Thank you so much.

    I definitely don't want things to be easy. And I don't want a 'fix it' fic.... I'm bad at communicating my meaning I think.
    I've just been coming across fics where Buffy begs Spike to be with her, and he's kind of brutal or indifferent or rejects her, or flaunts other women in her face. I'd prefer Buffy to have the upper-hand.

    I really loved Sunalso's A Better Man, if that helps.

    I'm surprised that you're having trouble finding the sort of story that you're after. I feel like the usual way of things is that Buffy tries to keep Spike at arm's length, not the other way 'round. And "other women" is the exception, not the norm. (I personally don't have a problem with Spike moving on if he thinks there's no chance with Buffy, but I don't see it a lot in fic.)

    You might try Kantayra on AO3. This author has lots of long, fun stories with faithful lieutenant Spike. Try Superstar Revamped, Tabula Rasa Ad Aeternum, or (for extra smut) Double Spiked. Most things by MsClawdia would also qualify, I think. Her stuff is on LiveJournal, but can also be found at the SpuffyRealm. Slaymesoftly's Are We Friends/Just a Summer Romance might do the trick.

    Happy reading!

    Really enjoyed Crocodile!!

    time travel fics vary from 'hot mess' to exquisite. plenty on EF.

    lots of great spuffy of various kinds on EF, some on Bloodshedverse (an older site, used to be very popular, has a lot of good stories, some by folks who aren't writing anymore). If you like crossovers, try twisting the hellmouth, but crossover pairings tend to be more popular on tth b/c it's a crossover site. and of course AO3 continues to grow.

    I'd like to recommend 15 Cinquain Poems by thenewbuzwuzz [G] on EF. They are short and sweet and I've read them a few times now and I think a couple of them are excellent.

    Ah, shucks. "Beautiful", eh? I'm all aflutter.

    That fic does pretty much sum up my take on the characters, though, for all that it's an early work. The attraction was there early. Both fought against it. Spike has a better nature that dissipates when he feels insecure or disrespected. Buffy is boss. *nods*

    Well, if you're going to dive right in to Slaymesoftly's work, you'll be busy all summer! She's crazy prolific! Here's a link to her website, which is possibly more complete than either EF or AO3:
