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. :)

I've just read the first chapter of an excellent new fic by [ profile] gabrielleabelle. She's new to my flist, but is someone I'd like to get to know better. Her meta posts are fascinating, but this is the first time I've read any fanfic by her. It definitely won't be the last!

Title: Influence of Demons
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Spuffy
Summary: Goes AU after S5's Checkpoint. Five years ago, Buffy and Spike fell into a portal to a dimension ruled by demons. Finally, reunited, their goal is to get back home. However, the years in this dimension have changed them. Spike's long isolation keeps him distant, and Buffy's enforced life at a brothel has caused her to forget the Slayer she used to be. Somehow, they'll have to find themselves again to defeat a powerful enemy and make it home.

Only one chapter posted so far, but I'm completely hooked already. Such an intriguing start! I'll definitely be following this one.

Enjoy! :)

Thanks to everyone for all your comments on my last post. Sorry I haven't been able to answer them yet. I've got the flu, so I'm taking a short LJ and internet break. Be back as soon as I'm feeling better! :)

K went back to school on Wednesday. She's bounced back remarkably well, as she always does. Getting back into a normal routine has done her the world of good.

We haven't heard anything from the hospital, so we don't know when the op is going to be yet. I'm just glad it wasn't this week after all.

*hugs to you all*

Spike and Spuffy are proving to be my salvation yet again. Where would I be without them? Thanks to all you fanfic writers out there, my favourite couple are helping to keep me sane. Their story still touches me more than any other fictional couple ever has before. And Spike...well, he's *Spike*. I don't really need to say any more than that, do I? He may get knocked down time and time again, but he always gets back up again. Is it any wonder that I'm still as madly in love with him as I ever was? :)

New Fic!
