Avatar late '90s fanfic
by elphia3 (elphia3)
at October 9th, 2017 (02:11 am)

I'm looking for my favorite fanfic of all time, from the late '90s or early 2000s. The author's main handle on Buffy sites was Avatar. He may have also published under Oracle or RedThunder in different fandoms (such as, maybe, The X-Files).

The story was extremely long. Maybe a trilogy. The plot of the first story in the trilogy was that Buffy had been out of commission for a few years post-Becoming. She had disappeared (like in Anne; must have been written originally in the summer after season 2) and ended up in an institution. Angel was in hell. Giles found Buffy, helped her get into fighting shape, and helped her travel to hell (through a mirror?), possibly because of a prophecy. She found Angel. He had been surviving on his wits for decades or longer, but he hadn't lost his mind yet. Hell was more like the wild West than a torture chamber. Together they camped, hunted, ate unappetizing food together, etc. Food in hell was very bland.

At some point in one of the later chapters, they are trying to bring down an ancient organization together. They have a child who grew up not knowing one or both of them. At some point Giles dies, and someone reads Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas at his funeral. Some non-human masterminds with knowledge of the probabilities of various outcomes in various universes have gathered the best fighters from all universes (and fandoms) together to help stop some ancient evil (older than time, etc.). Their models suggest that things will still probably go poorly, but they keep recruiting more master fighters in order to try to improve the odds.

I am probably making this story sound bizarre and terrible. But it was beautiful. I was devoted to it. I wrote the author fan emails. He may have let me beta read early drafts of one of the later novels, and I'm sure I did a terrible job (I was very young). It was incredibly vivid and well-written. I haven't read it in probably 17 years, at least, but I'd love to read it again. If this rings any bells at all, I'd love to hear any tips.

I think I read it originally on the Slayer's Fanfic Archive, which, sadly, doesn't seem to exist anymore (former link: http://slayerfanfic.com/).

Hotel California?
at September 30th, 2017 (04:03 am)

Looking for a fic I read years ago based around a prophecy of the Eagles - "Hotel California" song. Angel has a few appearances but Spike is the one prophesied to kill Wolfram & Hart in another diminsion and rescue Buffy, who spends her days entranced and dancing in the hotel courtyard. (How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.)

Hi all,
I'm looking for an old fic. The only thing I can remember is that Buffy slleps with Angel to release Angelus so together they can save Spike from the Initiative.
I hope someone knows what I'm talking about because I'm almost afraid I dreamt the whole thing.

X-Men crossover: Willow is Magneto's granddaughter

I recall a story that I now can't seem to find.  Willow finds out her grandfather Erik Lensherr is alive and has been thrown in prison.  She decides to go visit and re-establish contact.  He's now known as Magneto.  Now that I'm thinking more about it, it may be that Erik isn't Willow's grandfather, but her great uncle.  And I think maybe the old man sent Sabretooth to watch out after the only member of his family that wants to keep in contact and isn't afraid of him.  Thanks for any help on this.

Willow backs Buffy in trying to control and manipulate the Scoobies

It's been a looooong while since I've read any BtVS fanfic and have no idea which key works to use to search my files for these two stories.  Hope someone can help me out.  I don't remember much about the first one.  Willow has been using her magic (because Buffy always know best, right?) and clouding the minds and manupulate Xander, Riley, Tara, and possibly Oz, while keeping Angel in the dark about it.  It comes down to a showdown between Xander and Buffy & Willow, in a house or building.  One of them has been knocked out and Xander realizes that she is laying on the floor, faking it.  He's trying to get through to his friends but realized that they are too hungry for power in too deep into the mindset that Buffy is always right and Willow's magic will make the others see the truth in that.  Angel sees that they are dangerous and helps Xan take them out.  (I know that kinda vague, but I can't seem to remember any more.)

Another story I'm look for is a series.  I can't recall if Buffy is out of town for a while or what, but Angel becomes better friends with the gang.  At one point, Willow treatens to but a bell about Angel's neck so he'll quit startling her.  That's become an inside joke for them and the group laughs, while Buffy is left outside and doesn't quite get it.

Thanks for any help y'all can give.

Buffy comes back as a boy fic
by relurker (relurker)

In this story, Buffy dies and if I'm not mistaken is given a normal life from the Powers as a reward. She's put back in Sunnydale, not too long after her death, in the body of a male UCSD student. She's still Buffy, so attracted to guys, not girls. Then she meets with Spike, and Dawn, etc. Kind of melancholy at first,but looking up at the end. The recent gender topic on the shout box at Elysian Fields reminded me of it, but I can't find it: anybody can help?

Young Lust by Ducks?
by Christine Gillespie (Christine Gillespie)
at July 5th, 2017 (12:10 am)

I know this is a Spike centered community, but I need to find Young Lust by Ducks (I'm pretty sure that's who wrote it). Buffy babysits Angel's daughter. At one point it was on warriorsandlovers.com, but that's not up anymore. I can find a few chapters, but then they link back to that site. I found it (after MUCH searching) about 2 years ago, so it is out there. I saved the link, but my computer crashed and I lost everything. I think the site background was red/burgundy (I know that could have changed).
Please help me out. I loved that story!

Xander centric fic...

Looking for a fic where Buffy, Giles, and Wilow betray Xander. At one point the students at Sunnydale High give Willow 30 pieces of silver for betraying Xander. I think it ends up being Xander/Angel.

Buffy, Spike, and CPS

Hello! I'm looking for a fic that happens after Buffy returns from heaven. She and Dawn are living at the house and Child Protective Services starts coming by to investigate. Spike offers to help and I believe pretends he's in a relationship with Buffy to help with the social worker, who features heavily. I also think there's something about Spike getting a job or helping with money as well? I do know that it's not from the Family series or from A Better Metaphor series. Any suggestions?

Looking for a William fic

Does anyone remember an old William fic where his cousins took him to a brothel for his birthday? I was thinking it was by Cindergal or Chrisjournal, someone starting with a C, but a quick google and perusing Allaboutspike.com is coming up blank.
