herself_nyc: Fic update: NOT MY BEAUTIFUL SEQUEL (pt 11 of ?)

This is a sequel to Not My Beautiful House, which is the one where, during the NFA battle, canon!Spike and Bittersweet!Spike get switched. Canon!Spike spends some time in the Bittersweets-verse where he is startled to find that Sunnydale flourishes, the Scoobies are his friends, he's husband to Buffy and a father to Jem -- and most of all, that he's all this in his soul-less state. When he finally encounters Bsweets!Buffy, they have an informative and sharing experience, but she's shocked at what he says about his soul, and his apparent disappointment at her for accepting him without one.

This fic picks up right after the conclusion, in which canon!Spike is reunited with canon!Buffy and Bsweets!Spike with Bsweets!Buffy.

In this part, the two Buffys start to get to know each other ....

All parts here.

This is a sequel to Not My Beautiful House, which is the one where, during the NFA battle, canon!Spike and the Spike from Bittersweets saga get switched.

When he finally encounters Bsweets!Buffy, they have an informative and sharing experience, but she's shocked at what he says about his soul, and his apparent disappointment at her for accepting him without one.

The sequel deals with the aftermath in their relationships for each Spike/Buffy couple following this dimensional cross-over, and what happens when all four meet again.

herself_nyc: Fic update: WAITING AROUND (pt 13 of ?)


The action of this story picks up immediately from the conclusion of Some Scenes From The Later Life of Two Heroes. If you haven't read that one, it was a sequel to a longer pair of Spike/Xander stories, which can be read here. The low-down: since her resurrection, Buffy has never aged, and has grown increasingly distant from her surviving adult children and their families. In this far-future fic, after a long lifetime partnered with Xander, Spike has buried him and is at a loose end. He and Buffy have a series of encounters spread out over months, and after averting an apocalypse together, return to London for what might be the beginning of a long-postponed affair. But the past casts long shadows into the present, and the future ....


In this part, Buffy and Spike tussle over their next move.

Read it at herself_nyc_fic, or at my IJ.
