Highly recommended. Not the usual 'kidnapping turns into true love' story. Characterization is dead on. I love it!

This is a hell of a lot of fun. Please come back to this story. There's still so much fun to be had here!

Eighteen Days by Elen starstarstarstarstar [ - ]
Chapter One--A Cautionary Tale of World Save-age. It isn't NC-17 yet, but I thought I'd better make it NC-17 to be on the safe side. All of the email addresses used for Willow, her friends and parents were made up for this story. Please don?t use them!

I am not a W/S 'shipper by any stretch but I am loving this story. Most 'Spike kidnaps Willow' stories has the Stockholm Syndrome kick in after about ten minutes of captivity, then they quickly discover that it's 'true love'. Fantastic story. I love that it’s an ensemble piece; everyone has their own story and character. I liked the little W/B bit in the dream. Most het stories totally ignore the fact that canon Willow eventually favors the fairer sex. Spike's realization at the end of this chapter was just beautiful. An excellent story.

Author's Response: Thank you, Howard. It's always nice to meet people who like other ships. I was a little intimidated by the notion of writing for a character that is later established to be gay, but I'm finding that it presents interesting oportunties to explore. I'm glad you are enjoying ED.

Wow. This is so well done. It's a shame to leave it unfinished like this. I hope you come back.

That's Life by Izual the fallen starstarstarstarhalf-star [ - ]
Season six. Takes place right after 6x11, ?Gone?. Let?s see what happens if the lives of Buffy and Willow aren?t completely eviscerated (at the least, no more than they already have been).

Hi Dawn, Love the premise, where's the fic? j/k Because of your wonderful "Ages Apart" and "The Good, The Bad, and The Fangy" I'm used to much larger chapters from you. :) Please continue, can't wait for more. Howard

Author's Response: Hey, Howard...glad you checked out the new fic. Yeah...it's quite a different style, voice, and perspective from my usual, isn't it? Glad you are liking it so far. I have posted more of it and will continue to update. And thanks for reading and reviewing... :-)

Damn, this is sad. Really, I wish you could come back and give us a happy Wiffy ending, but I'm not trying to push. I hate to see an unhappy Willow. Well done.

Ad Noctum by Spellbound starstarstar [ - ]
A slight crossover with Xena:Warrior Princess, only in as much as that show influences this story and contains vampire like creatures from it. There are no leather-clad lesbians but plenty of reference to them! As usual, I own nothing but my twisted imagination, all characters are property of the lucky people that own them. A new and unusual vampire menace arrives in town
Willow/Jenny
Characters: Jenny, Willow, Tara - Genres: Romance, Angst, Crossover - Rating: NC-17 - Warnings: Violence, Hurt/Comfort - Chapters: 9

Did this get put in the wrong category? I hope not. I hope you're just building up to the Willow/Buffy goodness. But, so far, I don't see any. As a Willow/Tara piece, it's pretty intense. And, sadly, in character for Willow. Jenny seems a stretch, but there also seems to be something Hellmouthy causing all this. I can't wait to see where this goes.

Author's Response: Hi there, I do apologise, I appear to have been having a brainfart when I catergorised this one, so yes it was incorrectly labeled. I'd love to apologise for this fic but as it was requested by a friend, then Ihold him purely responsible. He wanted Willow/Jenny with a little Tara action and some sort of Xena-ness as a compromise to me. For the moment, it's not 'going' anywhere but I may have the urge to turn it into a series of weird sexual encounters at some point in the future..... it could be a while as I have some really odd pairings and a complicated story to write first. Thanks for the feedback though, its greatly appreciated and I will take all your thoughts and suggestion on board! :o)



The authors own nothing. Joss, UPN, WB, etc. own Buffy, the show, the characters, the places, and the backstory. The authors own any original plots.
