    I would suggest the Of Old Mystics by Wolfling and Ophalmos -- I've recommended it over and over. It is a Giles/Ethan pairing. The first I ever read, but it's about way more than just slash sex. It is so very complex and interesting -- about healing, about the mission of slaying and saving the world -- and yes, about the love between two very damaged people and how they come back to it. It was the first slash story that held my attention. Before this I was not a great fan of slash b/c I thought (and still think) too many of them are about 'love pwetty bwoys, let's make them #*@%' PWP is fine, it's just not that exciting to me at this stage in my life.

    This is hot, but it's way more than that -- and the 'boys' are grown men, even middle aged men, and I find that more interesting than the eyecandy #*@%-fics.

    It is now archived on AO3
    Of Old Mystics


    This not only made me want to read more slash, it also made me want to try my hand at seriously writing fan fiction. So I at least somewhat owe this fic my million plus words of fiction.

She was the first author I ever got hooked on and it was her writing that made me like Buffy - Angearia and Lizarel had me loving her but Barb ‘showed’ her to me. So if I was recommending one only it would be Necessary Evils

    Barb also loves all the characters and could out-canon the most ardent fan ��
    I've read the prequel A Raising In The Sun a while back and really enjoyed it. I agree, Rahirah's skills are formidable; she writes all characters with great care, detail and fondness.

    Never got to Necessary Evils, though. It's on my reading list, although the formula and novel length keeps me procastrating. I think one day I'll get over myself.

    Yes!! I haven't had time to reply to this thread yet (or any recent thread really) but my "one fanfic" recommendation would have been the entire Barbverse. Of course it would have been cheating a bit, because it is actually a large set of stories-- but since they all contribute to one big overarching story I would say it still counts.
