And it was great! We had people trying new things, people returning to old things... people rocking on as they always do, and many kind souls cheering them on and providing thoughtful feedback. Thank you all so much! Additional thanks to my fellow mods slaymesoftly, teragramm, eurydice72, rbfvid, and rebcake who helped and/or will help this round run smoothly.

For your catching up convenience, here's an index post with links to all entries. If you don't have a LiveJournal or Dreamwidth account, note that anonymous comments will stay possible and easy until the end of next week (unless we run into spam problems). Thereafter, we will tighten the comment settings as the comm goes into hiatus.

Authors, if you crosspost your fic to Elysian Fields or Archive of Our Own, remember that you can use the Seasonal Spuffy EF category and AO3 tag to help readers find your story.

Everyone, how was the round for you? Please let us know if you noticed anything we could organize better in future rounds, or anything we should keep right on doing because it's working particularly well.

...And that's all, folks! We hope to see some of you again at the Summer Solstice Free-For-All. fancyflautist will tell you more about that in a bit. :)

And Fear Finds Nothing Left to Mend, Part II
By Barb C.

Rating: T
Setting: Post-Gift AU (Barbverse)
Pairing: Buffy/Spike
Synopsis: Knowing that the Slayer has hard decisions to make is one thing. Being the subject of one is quite another.
Author’s notes: This story takes place in the same universe as "Raising In the Sun," "Necessary Evils," and "A Parliament of Monsters." It immediately precedes "To Lie Down With Wolves" and "Every Silver Lining Has A Touch of Gray," and it's pretty damn angsty, folks. The story includes some elements of Dark Horse comics canon, but I do very different things with them. Thanks to my incredible betas, slaymesoftly, trepkos, typographer, and cornerofmadness – any remaining errors are entirely my own.

Title: Breaking the Habit
Author/creator: electric_heart
Era/season/setting: Season 8 Buffy Comics/Post Angel After the Fall
Rating: Teen
Pairing: Spike/Original; Buffy/Satsu; Eventually Buffy/Spike
A/N: This is my first attempt at a Buffyverse fic that is longer than a drabble in about a decade. I decided to try my hand at writing Spuffy fic again for seasonal_spuffy because I missed the characters and the fandom. “Breaking the Habit” is a story that was conceived about eleven years ago. Unfortunately, I lost every word written because back then I did not properly save or backup anything I wrote. It bummed me out that I lost hours of work, and I’ve been thinking a lot about that story since returning to the fandom. I decided to “reboot” the story and incorporated this round’s “Dark Carnival” theme in the first chapter. I’m no spring chicken, so my memory isn’t the best. I remember vaguely what the story was about, but it’s been over a decade. So, everything written is brand new. Additionally, the story is an AU of season 8 and admittedly, I will be playing fast and loose with the timelines between Buffy seasons 8-9 and Angel season 6.
I’d like to also thank my beta for this chapter, cornerofmadness. You are awesome! Any mistakes are all mine.
Disclaimer: The characters are not mine.

Go HERE to read, and remember that it's currently possible to comment on all Seasonal Spuffy Dreamwidth posts even without a DW account. :) Knowledge of comics canon doesn't seem necessary in order to enjoy the story as a post-series reunion fic, and there's a definite Spuffy undercurrent as soon as Spike appears.

Title: Spuffy is the word
Creator: Double Dutchess

Spuffy is the word
It's got groove it's got meaning
Spuffy is the time, is the place, is the motion
Now, Spuffy is the way we are feeling


The carnival theme of this round reminded me of the final scenes from Grease. So I made a couple of Grease manips in which I recast Buffy as Sandy and Spike as Danny. Here's the first one: a Spuffified version of the album cover of the Grease soundtrack.

I kindly ask your patience before I post the rest! (Three more to follow, with my apologies for going over the deadline. At least I just managed to post this one before twelve...)
