Chapter: Sixteen

Rating: NC-17
Summary: You know you wanna dance. Spike knew it, the fans knew it, and this time, Buffy knew it, too.  Begins in the alley scene outside the Bronze during Fool for Love and moves swiftly off-canon.
Notes: Only two years plus late, but it's finally finished.  No idea if anyone is still interested or not, but it's done and I'm glad, even if I don't think the final two chapters are quite up to the same standard as the rest of this

Rating: NC-17
Summary: You know you wanna dance. Spike knew it, the fans knew it, and this time, Buffy knew it, too.  Begins in the alley scene outside the Bronze during Fool for Love and moves swiftly off-canon.
Notes: I've left this story quasi-abandoned for so very long, but!  It's finished!  It's actually finished.  Initially I thought there was just one final chapter to go, but in writing it, it became two.  They are both complete.  I am posting this first and will post the conclusion in a day or so.  For anyone still following this story, thanks for hanging in there.
More notes: Time-line wise, this happens just after the opening scene in Into the Woods -- which is actually where we end off with Chapter 14.

Chapter Fifteen )

>>To be concluded
abelina: made by xtanitx (sunset)
That's how I'm feeling right now, these days, lately, in regards to fandom.  I'm itching for that connection again, to be in the midst of it, to be writing and reading, to dive right in and belong again.  Have you ever been asleep and have one of those slow wake-ups, where your brain is aware, you can tell what's going on around you (through a hazy kind of filter), but you just can't breech the surface?  That's how I can best describe me, right now.

My newest obsession -- Doctor Who -- has woken up the fangirl, but I've yet to make more than a tiny ripple in that community yet.  I'm writing, slowly, tentatively while the character voices solidify themselves in my head, but not ready to share.  Not yet.

What it's making me want desperately is a return to BtVS, to finish what I've left unfinished.  I'm afraid that fandom has either moved on without me, or has died out altogether.  I've neglected it badly, since I stopped writing, and now in the upward swing of what I have come to understand is my normal cycle of writing/complete writers' block/writing again, I am wondering if I will be able to come back at all.  The last time this happened I changed fandoms--Star Wars: Expanded Universe to Buffy the Vampire Slayer--and I'm wondering if this time I can manage both.

Can I write for Buffy and Doctor Who?  Can I even get writing again at all?  I've written more this past month than I have in years (about 14,000 words over two Doctor Who stories -- why do I always start out with long fics when I'm so much better at completing short ones? -- plus the 600 or so it took to finish the Spuffy-centric "That Easy" which was almost done), but it's not yet reached the point where I feel I'm truly back.

But I want to be.  It's been a long time since I've fallen hard enough for something to want to write in it.  I'm fannish by nature but it takes something special to inspire me to write for it, and Doctor Who, mostly Ten/Rose, has done that.  I'm trying to wake my Spuffy muses, too.

I'm floating here, just on the cusp of waking up, and I really, desperately need to.

Title: That Easy
Summary: After an unexpected reunion, years after the fall of Sunnydale, Spike and Buffy take a walk.

Word Count: 2024
Disclaimer: I don’t own ‘em.  I’m just borrowing them for a while.
Rating: PG, for mild sexual suggestiveness.
Author’s Note:
This is a companion piece to Anywhere, the second half of the reunion as told from Spike’s point of view.  It’s been a long time, and Anywhere is very short, so I recommend you re-read it first before your read this. I found this mostly complete on my harddrive.  It's simple and unlikely, but as I wrote Anywhere, I was in the mood for an uncomplicated reunion and thus, this second piece needed to have the same feeling.  It is not the best thing I've ever written, but my writing muses are finally waking up again and the desire to share something has been exceedingly strong lately.  So, here you go!

NOTE:
I'm dedicating this chapter to the amazing, wonderful, fantastic, awesome, and super incredibly dreadfully horribly swamped with work [livejournal.com profile] dampersnspoons.  This fic wouldn't be what it is without her help and guidance.  Everyone please send good, workload-reducing thoughts her way, because it's just not fair, damn it!  All work and no play makes Dampers not happy!
