Well, first of all, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in Round 18 of Seasonal Spuffy—authors, artists, and all of you who took the time to read and look and leave a few words of appreciation. Our theme this round was “bouncing back” and bounce we did! Our show might be over, but Spuffy never goes out of season.

slaymesoftly was originally going to do this Index Post, but she had a host of computer problems so I offered to take this on. My role this far in this community has mostly been behind the scenes—I am your friendly neighbourhood tag-wrangler—but I’ll venture out of my cave for now to bring you Round 18’s index post.

Please let me know if any of the links are broken or if I missed something, or if you find your work listed in the wrong place, and I’ll be happy to fix that up. If you started a WIP for this round and finish it elsewhere, let me know and I’ll link to that as well.

Thanks again, everyone, and I hope to see you all back this fall for Seasonal Spuffy’s 10th Anniversary! Spread the word and let's make the 10th Anniversary the biggest round yet.

Thank you to all who participated in this round of seasonal_spuffy! It was thrilling, wasn't it? Please continue to look, read, comment, and generally talk amongst yourselves. Look for a wrap-up index post soon, listing all the goodies created for our enjoyment.

If you can think of anything you'd like to see in the next — 10th Anniversary! — round, please leave suggestions here.

I cannot resist another offering to seasonal_spuffy (hallowed be thy name!), a spanking-new-fic that will be finished in the next week. Thanks again to the mods and all my fellow participants for this spectacular round of Seasonal Spuffy!

Title: What Lay Onward and What Behind
Author: feliciacraft
Continuity: Set a decade after "Chosen"
Warning: Buffy/Other
Length: ~3400 Words
Rating: R
Betas: all4spike (who speedily ran the piece through her fine comb), spuffy_luvr and dragonyphoenix, for their special guest critique, who are just the kind of critics a writer's dreams are made of. Thank you all so much! This is a work in progress, so all remaining errors are mine.
Author's Note: Since my wonderful f-list has encouraged me to hold fast and steady to my own artistic vision and not to pander, note the Buffy/Other (F/M) in this story. Also: I've never been to Japan or Cambodia (layovers don't count, I think). Let me know if anything doesn't ring true. Otherwise, much praise is due to Google.
Feedback: Yes, yes and yes please! Won't you be so kind?

matter_of_time_thumb.jpgTitle: I Walk Alone
Author: comlodge
Charachters: Spike and Buffy
Medium - Art Picspam - heavy emphasis on the spam
Rating: PG
Setting: S5
Disclaimer: Joss does not even own them, damn it!
A/N: This is one of my fave Spuffy scenes and I liked the way the camera slowly panned them. From intent to murder to silent comforter. That Spike! He walks his own path and so does Buffy. A nice excuse to make a Photoshop action to clean up, textureise and present a bunch of images. Forgot to make an icon. And durn uploaded in order instead of reverse. One at a time add then it is. 28 images you scroll quickly to get one of those old time flickering films. :D Thans to Greenday who sometimes sound quite nice, for singing about our star crossed kids.

I've been dealing with some personal stuff recently, so not only did I miss my posting day on the 15th, but I also don't have anything made to contribute. So I decided to open a request post. But there are a few conditions.

1. You must be a member to request.
2. You can request 1 of the following:


*** 3 icons
*** 1 animated icon
*** 1 wallpaper
*** 2 tumblr icons
*** 1 header or tumblr banner
*** 1 animated gif


So go request away. Comment with your request here. If there's a specific picture you want me to use and it's not readily available, include it in your comment. I can also customize your art however you would like. If you want to see examples of what I've done in the past, visit my tag here on seasonal spuffy or visit my graphics journal betweenthewoods.

A little somethin' somethin' for Free For All day...

Title: Making It
Medium: Fanfic
Pairing(s): Buffy/Spike (Joyce/Hank)
Rating: PG
Length: ~1,500
Timeline: S4 post-Hush in an AU setting
Warnings: Schmooooooooooooop
Summary: Positive thoughts bring positive results, that’s what Joyce always used to tell the girls. It’s her polished-up, momish version of ‘fake it until you make it’.
Notes: A little coda to Reciprocal. Originally part of the main story, I cut this scene at the last minute, and have since expanded it. Thanks to herself_nyc for the original beta; any subsequent mistakes are my own. Concrit is welcome. Enjoy :)

A new chapter of my San Francisco story/travelogue! It's been awhile, but the end is in sight! I'm sorry not to have a self-contained piece for this round, but I'm determined to finish this seasonal_spuffy WIP. (How do you novel-length authors do it?)

Title: Fire in the Soul (6a/9)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2075
Pairing: Spike/Buffy, with Dru and OCs.
A/N: Thanks for the quickie beta by MiAmor. NOT comics compliant.
Summary: A few years after Sunnydale’s spectacular demise, Buffy and her crew are getting on with their lives in San Francisco. A not entirely unwelcome blast from her past (Spike! It's Spike!) blows into town, but he’s brought more than the generally allowable amount of baggage with him.

This is the day I have written down in my planner as my posting date. So here goes. This story is the third in a series.
#1 The Troll Hunt post in Dec 2012 for Seasonal Spuffy http://maryperk73703.livejournal.com/175928.html

Title: The Return of the Zeppo
Medium: fanfic
Rating and Warnings: NC-17 for language and major character death, OCs
Timeline: Season 4
Summary: Willow does her 'Thy Will Be Done' spell.
Notes: Like the first two stories, I took some prompts for help.
Wolfie- something silly: googly eyes attached to everything (mentioned)
Spikester - something scary: clowns (mentioned)
Bunnyfer - something you want to see but rarely do: Buffy with a good education and job
Spuffy lvr - unlikely companion: Numero Cinco (The Cautionary Tale of Numero Cinco, ATS5)

I've set this on a timer as the 'rents are visiting, fingers crossed it works...

Title: Reciprocal
Medium: Fanfic
Pairing(s): Buffy/Spike (mention of Buffy/others, Spike/others)
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~10,000
Timeline: S4, goes AU during Harsh Light of Day but set mostly post-Hush.
Warnings: dubious consent due to sex magic/claim, cliché-wallowing
Summary: What it all came down to, Giles told her, was that claims were largely thought to be fiction these days, and even then no one had ever heard of it happening in such a manner.
Notes: Shameless porn with a half-hearted attempt at plot and faint traces of satire… aka Moony’s I REGRET NOTHING fic. Many thanks to herself_nyc and rahirah for speedy beta work. Thanks also to the lovely ladies who run this community. Concrit is, as ever, most welcome. Enjoy :)

Just a short ficlet from me today. I took a bit of a risk with the decidedly unsexy subject matter; I hope you like it anyway. :)

Bed Wrinkles In Time

By: caia
Rating: PG
Setting: 2030
Genre: Humor/Schmoop
Warnings: mentions of medical stuff, but nothing graphic.
Standard disclaimer: The characters aren't mine, just the story.
Blurb: Buffy is fifty, and not pleased about some of the indignities that go with that.
Feedback: Yes, please.


She came in the door looking like a puppy in the bath: droopy and pathetic, but in a non-life or world-threatening sort of way.

spuffy_moments_thumb.jpgTitle: Spuffy Memories
Author: comlodge
Characters: Spike and Buffy
Medium: Art - Wallpaper
Rating: M - depictions of violence
Disclaimer: They belong to someone else.
A/N: Some snaps of some my fave episodes and scenes in the journey that was Spike and Buffy from S4 to S7. One almost always begins with Something Blue for Spuffy. There was so much more to their engagement than a simple wish of "Why don't they just get married." The happiness, the intimacy, the thoughtfulness from both. Feelings to linger in both long after the spell.

I was amazed and grateful for comments and readers when I posted a chapter of After the Deluge on Monday. Thank you everyone who did either!

Here, as it's free-for-all-day, is another chapter. No, don't faint. 1,212 words, PG13.
