My husband and I run a small commercial cleaning company that we started after getting out of mainframe computer careers. Both of us are BtVS and Angel fans but I was bitten with the writing bug thanks to the character Spike. Right now my life is mostly work, sleep, reading and writing. The good life I guess.

All but a couple of my stories are Beta'd (oh yea, you'll be able to tell). My Beta is Scarlett2U (Mary) one of the best people on the planet and the finest editor I could ever hope to have.


After the Initiative is “shut down” a fatal decision is made that will change the face of the world and uproot everyone Buffy knows before placing her in the greatest jeopardy of her life.  A new world is born but is it one they would wish to live in?

She's been gone 5 days, 14 hours, 17 minutes.  Everyone is still is reeling from Buffy's sacrifice and grieving in their own way. All heroes deserve to be remembered no matter how short or long a time has passed since their sacrifice at least that's what Dawn insists.

Setting: S5: Slightly less than a week after The Gift soon after sundown on Memorial Day 2001.

 prompt:“At the end of S7 Lies My Parents Told Me I would like to have Buffy lying on her bed thinking of every time Giles has let her down, betrayed her. Late in the night, after everyone has fallen asleep, she makes her way down to the basement to talk to Spike because she can’t keep the anger and hurt she is feeling to herself. While talking with the vampire, she comes to another realization: that Spike is the only one she can vent to and she can count on no matter what.”   Written for a fundraiser for Spikeslovebite on the death of her son, Kain.

This is a rewrite of S4 continuing the metaphors from previous seasons. There is no Adam in this story. Buffy and the Scoobies enter the world of college and work and discover the world is not black and white as they have been taught.

There’s a glitch using those Ghorah eggs as a surprising result develops from Dawns attempt to bring back her mother. Those developments both thrill and horrify Spike as the scoobies and Buffy discover the man behind the mask. Can a mothers love heal and bind or should the past be left in the grave? Setting: Season 5 mid episode "Forever" going AU from there. Liberal changes made to the ritual Dawn uses for the resurrection spell. A/N and disclaimer: All characters and concept belong to Joss Whedon and ME, Fox, WB, UPN and other corporations affiliated with same. Thanks to Mr. Whedon’s generous permission, I am using his creations in my original plot for no financial gain on my part. Bits of dialogue from transcripts of "Forever" written by Marti Noxon. The true "PTB" have given William the surname of Pratt. For the purposes of this story I researched my little heart out on that surname and chose a prominent branch of Pratt’s (adding my own fictional portion). Thus I offer my apologies to those actual family members who might not appreciate my little addition. Spike’s immediate family (father and paternal grandmother in particular) are purely the construct of my imagination.

The battle against the Senior Partners brought our heroes to the alley against hordes of demons. This story assumes much more was going on in the back rooms of W & H, things that lead to a group rescue effort that will involve almost all the BtVS and AtS main characters in one epic battle against evil.
