As most of you who know me are aware I'm far from being a fan of the Buffy comics. However, it appears that something good has come out of them - Spike/Buffy "fire escape!fic". This is fic which uses the Spike and Buffy scene on the fire escape of Dawn and Xander's apartment as a jumping off point for new stories involving our favourite couple. [personal profile] slaymesoftly posts about it here and includes a list of all the stories available so far.

So today, not only have I found myself reading Spike/Buffy fanfic (something I hadn't done for well over a year), but I've also found myself reading post-S8 Spike/Buffy fanfic. And what's even more surprising is that I'm really enjoying it! It's fresh, exciting, and brings something new to the table that I think was very much needed.

I'd come to the point in my fanfic reading life where I think I'd read pretty much every Spike/Buffy scenario possible, and as much as I still loved those stories, I no longer felt as compelled to read them as I once had. But now, with the emergence of S8 (and S9) there are even more possibilities open to us. No, I don't like the source material, but I love how certain authors are using that material to create a whole new genre of Spike/Buffy stories for us to enjoy.

You know, I think there may just be some life left in this old fandom after all. :)
