I can't remember the name of this fic, but it had Xander training under Amanda as a new immortal, and they eventually develop a relationship that Joyce disapproves of.
The story I'm looking for was a canon-set alternate universe, set around season 2? Angelus and Drucilla kidnap little Dawn, who bonds with the wheelchair-bound Spike. He helps her escape later in the story. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It was really quite old (oh, goodness, I may have read it about ten years ago), and unfinished at the time, but I keep wanting to re-read it...
I recall reading a story maybe 10+ years ago, where I think Spike was somehow washed up or deposited on a beach near a coastal community, upstate from CA. Maybe it was after AtS, or maybe it was canon headed AU mid-series.So, this woman, who is in this town because she lives there/she is settling family stuff/whatever, I think she has a cottage/house, finds Spike. I can't recall if Spike is human or vamp. I think Spike can't remember his past, or refuses to. The woman seems to help him for a long time, I can't remember if it goes Spuffy, but I assume so. The woman was a doctor or nurse, or in medical training.Many thanks for the brain power... :)
I was thinking the different remembered scenes in my head were from two different stories but I'm having doubts about that (and doubts about those doubts, the more I think about it). What I do recall is Willow going early to Buffy's house before Oz has to be caged for the full moon. When she gets there she hears Buffy and Oz unmistakably together. Distraught, Willow runs into Angel, who was just coming back from getting the happiness clause in his curse erased. They go to the closed and empty Bronze and Angel tells Willow that since he owns the bar she can take her anger out on all the glassware. Later, after avoiding Buffy and Oz, Willow goes to the study circle at Giles's. Because Xander has said something about calling Buffy that Willow was on her way, Willow figures out that her boyfriend and best girl-friend had been messing around for some time and Xander knew about it. Willow breaks up with Oz and distances herself from Buffy, who's dumped by Angel. Cordelia is angry that Xander stood by and let his best friend be hurt and she dumps him. Faith, not involved with any of it, is amused, especially when Giles is enraged and lets Ripper out on Buffy, Oz, and Xander. (There's more but this entry is long enough) The part about smashing up the Bronze may or may not be from another story. Ring a bell with anyone? I hope so.
The story I've been looking for all week has one scene where Dawn and her friends (a new Scooby Gang?) are going on a field trip to a museum. One of her friends, Jack O'Neill's clone (Jon, I think) makes a joke about riding a dinosaur, horrifying one of the teachers. The students pull out note books to study the setups (under Faith's tutelage) but Jon recognized too many aspects of the Egyptian section and realizes that he's going to have to contact SG-1.This is driving me nuts. I've been looking for over a week at TTH and other sites with no luck.
This may be all one fic or I may be mixing up two. Angel takes Xander in as a teenager because his home life is unsafe. Angel sets him up in a basement apartment next to his and acts paternal. Later does same for Faith after discovering her living in an unsecured motel room. At one point he lectures on human nutrition and makes Faith eat broccoli. Possibly in same or different fic, Cordelia is taken in as well. Possibly in same or different fic, Xander and Faith go into a warehouse (looking to scavenge weapons, I think) and are distressed to find demon snack food made out of kittens.
This is only one of the BtVS stories by this author (name forgotten). It's told from Jesse's point of view. Willow is out of control with her magic; she brings Jesse back (I think it's an attempt to protect/control Xander) and he hasn't aged a bit while his friends are several years older. Xander is angry when he finds out and is protective of his younger friend, demanding that Giles call the coven to block Willow's magic.I'm sure that this author has written many more stories, and not just Buffy. Any help?
After being without a laptop for two years I finally got the money together for a new one and I'm trying to find some of my fondly remembered fan fiction to reread. This one is a long series crossed with Stargate SG-1 (and more?) and I've been recalling several scenes the last few days. Dawn has made several younger friends of her own and they're visiting a carnival, watched by Xander and Anya(?), Giles and his girlfriend Olivia, Willow and Tara, and Spike. The younger crowd are trapped in the fun house by a giant demon spider. After being rescued by the Scoobies, most of the girls spend the night at the Summers' house, which is ready to be sold. Xander and Willow start teasing each other about the close calls they've had with Buffy.Another scene is Dawn and her new 'Scooby Gang' on a school field trip to a museum. One of her new friends is Jon, who is Stargate's Jack O'Neill's clone. He recognized that several of the Egyptian displays are a little too real and contact's his (Jack's) crew.A third scene I remember has Dawn, a few of her friends, and Faith trapped in some magic tunnels under the school. Willow sends some sort of small magical creature to lead them out. Turns out some kid is using his mother's artifacts to do magic.Hopefully somebody recognized this tale and can point it out to me. It is several years old. Thanks.
Hi everybodyFor the past couple of hours I`ve been searching the Twisting the Hellmouth archive for a fic I read a couple of years ago. I know it was on Twisting the Hellmouth, but I can`t for the life of my seem to find it again! I`m hoping somebody here can help. Here what I remember about it: It was quite short story with Buffy as the central character, but Giles was also there. I think it was a conversation between them, It was not a sad or angsty story, but a short, funny one. Buffy gets pregnant because of the Powers that Be or a prophecy or somthing like that. Basically she gets pregnant against her will and being the modern girl she is gets an abortion with no consideration to the prophecy, leaving Giles a bit perplexed.Does anyone know where I can find this fic? Thanks! :)
