  • New Spuffy Fanfic Recommendations

    Okay, our "old" Spuffy Fanfic Recommendations thread seems to not have survived the upgrade. My heart breaks to think about all the wonderful recommendations we have shared in the thread and are now gone.
    But let's not dwell in the past but look forward to the future instead. Please share your Spuffy fanfic recommendations here from now on!

    Update: The "old" Spuffy fanfics recommendations thread is now back. Click on the link below and it will take you to 25 pages full with recs for happy, dark angsty, plotty, hilariously funny, and smutty Spuffy stories.

    Spuffy Fanfic Recommendations - BuffyForums

    Recent and future Spuffy fanfic recommendations will continue to take place in this new thread.

      I can't, it fails every time I try.

      It is still working for me, every time . And now I can use 'comment' also.

    I could get into it fine until half an hour ago. Then I decided to post something in the thread just to see if that works for me too and now I can't get in anymore.

    I should have done a quick copy and paste of our almost 500 posts in the old thread before I killed off the thread

      Just wrote a reply with a link, but it went all weird.

      I'd like to recommend Heliotrope by Gwyneth Rhys, and I would add a link, but as I say . . . it went all weird

        Did you use the link button on your posting box options? (I've put the link in below).

      Heliotrope by Gwyneth Rhys on EF

        Flow - is it this thread you thought you'd broken?


        • #7
          Nah, I created this one as a substitute.

            Yes I used the link, and it did link to something, but not what I wanted it to link to.

            It was probably me doing something wrong, so I'll keep trying and I'm sure it'll work eventually

              Summers_Anne if you are able to get into the old Spuffy Fanfic Recommendations still it would be great if you could copy some of the recs. I can't see an easy option for copying the post contents though other than copy and pasting into a document, so I appreciate that might just not be practical to do.

              Shall I merge these non-rec specific posts? We don't want to fill the first page of the new thread with forum/housekeeping frustrations rather than fic recs.

                I can access the old thread. Here's the list from Flow's original post:

                Originally posted by flow View Post

                If you want to suggest a story, please be so kind as to give us the title, the name of the writer, a link to the fic, the word count or number of chapters and a short summary.

                We have already picked our next two stories. They are
                Journeys: A Promise To A Lady by Mary and Journeys Part Two: Awakenings by Mary
                We have yet to decide on the dates for the discussions of Journeys.

                I already have a suggestion for June (?). This story was originally suggested by bespangled in another thread. It is A Long Day`s Journey by anaross.

                Summary: Spike's return, seen through the eyes of Angel and his friends. Oh. And he's not allowed to see Buffy. Post Chosen.

                181k words and you can find it here:


                This is just a suggestion. If you have other fics, you would like to read, please go ahead and we will decide together, which one to pick.

                  Thanks for trying to help Emmie, but unfortunately that is a different thread. Those are the suggestions from the discussion subform for the reading group. The fanfic recs were a general recommendation thread in the main section. If you scroll down to the topics (threads) on the main fanfic forum page the thread many of us can't open now is the second in the list, under this thread. It's called Spuffy Fanfic Recommendations and was started by SpuffyGlitz on the 6th Apr 2018.

                  Copy of what I said in the glitching thread.

                  Originally posted by flow View Post
                  Has anyone read Crossing Into Unchipped Territory by dutchbuffy? I've seen it recommended elsewhere (not on BB) but I wanted to know what people here think about it before I give it a try. Dutchbuffy's stories can be rather angsty and dark.

                  I read it a few years ago. It was fun as far as I remember, though the sequel got seriously squicky. My notes about Crossing say, "Buffy lands in an alternate dimension and meets an unchipped Spike, and it's all plot twists and trope subversion from there. *sighs happily*
                  The sequel also subverts tropes, mostly the trope that pregnant people can't have horrible, grotesque adventures.


                  • #13
                    Okay, so it seems to not be that angsty. I will definitely give it a try then.

                    For now, I have started Midway of Speech and Thought by TheHouskeeper on Elysian Fields. It's a post Chosen story and I really like the authors writing style. I can't say much more for now because I have only read the first chapter so far.



                    • #14
                      I can't remember if we had discussed this before. I would say that I found Crossing Into Unchipped Territory interesting, but I disliked the sequel immensely (for character issues).

                        I liked both, but you need a strong stomach for the sequel.

                      Ah that's fantastic, thank you! If you saved it in Word then it might be worth just reducing it down to a straight list of fics and it could then just be added as a post perhaps. I don't mind looking at doing that but it might need fitting in over a few days. We'll see what flow thinks as she's the master of the rec thread.

                          The above is what happens when I try to link something. I'm trying to link the EF version of Healing by Kimi, and it comes up with that ^^^ every time. Not sure how to fix it. Anyone have any clues?

                            Summer, Anne: It's awesome that you copied our old thread. Thank you so much! I don't exactly know how to upload it here now. Is it just one document? Then I would simply post it here but you might have to break into several posts if ist is too long. If each of the old posts has been saved separately it could still be the easiest way to copy and paste as many of them as possible into one post here. You will probably end up with more than one post because of the number of posts that were in the old thread.

                            Priceless: Your link works fine for me. it's just labeled oddly but it leads to Kimi's story on EF.

                              Reducing the text by just pulling out the actual fics included might make the reload of them easier and less likely to just recreate a 'large' thread that might then be trouble in opening. Maybe.

                            I've edited the link in your post to provide the fic details. I don't know if you would get the same options by going into edit on your post, but I was able to delete the first line of text in the link and retype. I don't know what the sistersolstace thing is all about but joomla seems to be some sort of antispam thing (yeah I'm terrible on the tech). I don't really know what the benefit is but it seems like the kind of thing that is intended to be.

                            You can delete the text 'Joomla!' too but that just really made me laugh when I saw it, like it was what you say in celebration of providing a link, so I didn't.

                            Alternatively, use the link button in the smaller icons beneath the large link and it just functions as a standard link.
