Basically, my muse pricked me, and I wrote. AU, Spike is a vampire, Buffy is human. Destined mating type deal, that is the basis for the plot here. (And I don't even believe in destiny so take this story-line as: The correct layout of events happened and he found her.)
This is a mating fic, there will be smut and... Well, I don't want to say much else and give too much away. Still strangers, Spike is spying on Buffy at night, that is how the story begins. Why don't you find out how it ends? ;)
I don't own any of the Whedonverse characters and I am not trying to make a profit from this story. Yadda yadda yadda, this has been a disclaimer.
After the death of her mother, Elizabeth Summers is forced to leave her home in Bermuda to live with her aunt and uncle in the strict Puritan colony of Connecticut. She soon finds that she's not the only stranger in town. Spuffy eventually. Past life AU. More details in author's notes.
“It’s all right, pet,” Spike whispered. “You go right ahead and hate me, it’s all right.” He pulled her closer and nuzzled her temple, his breath heady in her ear. His touch felt so good she pressed against him, warming herself on his cold chest as if he were a fire. “You have any idea how much I’ve hated you?” Set after Dead Things
“You really think he’s changed that much?” Spike asked. “That because he can feel remorse, he’s not still a demon? He wants to own you, and feed on you, and cause you pain, and you think he’s not a demon?” Spike shook his head. “Believe me. I know Angelus. I know what he wants.” Spike tells Buffy how Angelus used to hunt. Set before Something Blue
“Yeah, Spike always was a romantic,” Angel said with scorn. He glanced at Buffy. “It’s not love,” he pointed out. Buffy and Angel spy on Spike and Drusilla out and about. Set in season 2, after "Lie To Me".
What if going to Spike lead to finding out who had setup the attacks at school, the construction site and the Magic Box? Buffy's loyalty to the Scoobies is challenged after she learns there are other ways to deal with the lost of heaven.
Last in the series that began with The Gentleman Wore Leather, this one takes place in season three when Giles expects Buffy to go through her Cruciamentum. Joyce has different ideas and a phone number to call... Multi chaptered fic this time.
