Angel/BtVS

Angel/Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Into the Past by Angelcakes – In an attempt to complete a prophecy Wolfram&Hart send Cordelia back in time to the time of Jack the Ripper, where she comes face to face with Angelus.

Status – Complete

Pairing : Cordelia/Angel, Cordelia/Angelus

My Thoughts – This story has two sequels. I like Angelus/Cordelia stories mainly because more often than not Angelus has no idea what to do with Cordy. This time is no exception.

When Good Spells Go Bad by Chelle – After prom Buffy convinces Willow to do a spell to show Angel where he truly belongs only things don’t go as planned.
Status – Complete

Pairing : Cordelia/Angel, Slight Buffy/Angel

My Thoughts – Time travel story where Angel from the Angel-verse and the one from Season three of Buffy-verse switch places. What could be better than that? Especially in that moment when just for a second he has no idea where he is or why. Love it.

Change Partners and Dance by Dreamweaver – AU about what would have changed had Buffy teamed up with Spike instead of Angel when she first came to the Hellmouth.
Status : Complete

Pairing : Spike/Buffy

My Thoughts – This fic is good in my opinion on a lot of different levels but mainly for me it was because the author didn’t just make Spike do a random 360 in his personality and have him start loving Buffy the first time he saw her. Even in the show he didn’t love her on sight, he might have been intrigued by her, but the love came later and he fought it every step of the way.

Pinch Hitter by Dreamweaver – AU where when Buffy facees off against Adam Willow’s spell goes a little wrong and ends up making the slayer disappear. In order to keep the balance until the Powers can fix the magical snafu that caused they bring a Buffy from another dimension to help out for a while. This Buffy is older, stronger, and more confident than the one the scoobies are used to and she takes crap from no one.

Status : Complete

Pairing : Spike/Buffy

My Thoughts – The Buffy in this story is amazing, she’s older and wiser and in no mood to backslide or wobble about what she wants. She’s a Buffy that isn’t controlled by what her friends might think of her actions.

The Ghost in You by Buffymeetsspike – AU where Willow’s spell from Bargaining goes wrong and brings Buffy back as a ghost that only Spike can see.
Status : Complete
Pairing : Spike/Buffy

My Thoughts – I love the way the relationship between Spike and Buffy are portrayed in this story. It shows love and trust that they feel for one another. it also shows how out of everyone in her life Spike is one of the few who always puts Buffy first no matter the cost. I also like the Dawn storyline that seems so natural. This is one of those stories that after you read it, it makes you wonder why at least some of it didn’t happen in the show its self.

Guardians of the Scythe by Anthewolf – Buffy and Spike have both died leaving a prophecy unfulfilled. The Powers That Be decide to reward the Champions by allowing their memories, along with a few extras, to be returned to their past selves. How will Spike and Buffy react to their new lives, their old friends, and a set of memories of everything that is to come?
Status : Complete
Pairing : Spike/Buffy
My Thoughts – I enjoy stories like this one, and this one is the best.

The Replacement by sus – AU where Buffy isn’t killed by the Master at the end of season one. Instead she’s put into a coma and another Buffy from the future is eventually called on to help not only save the Hellmouth but to fulfill a prophecy.
Status : Complete

Pairing : Spike/Buffy

My Thoughts – I like this story for two main reasons and a lot of smaller ones. Reason one, Merrick – a lot of people never mention Buffy’s first watcher from L.A. and this story not only mentions him but he’s a main character. Reason two, Kendra – another character that’s rarely even mentioned in most of the fic that I’ve read. Most just gloss right over her and head right to Faith, understandable since over all I think Kendra was only in three episodes total, but it’s still refreshing to read a story that has her as a main character. Other than that it’s just an all around well written story that I enjoy.

A switch in time by coalitiongirl – When Buffy goes back in time to help stop Glory from ever getting Dawn things go wrong from the start. Beginning with her ending up in the wrong body.
Status : Complete
Pairing : Spike/Buffy
My Thoughts – This story is hilarious and I can’t get over how it gives Buffy a sort of first hand look at what it’s like to not be the center of the Scoobies anymore but to have to look on from the outside.

A Penny for your…. by Jackofspikes – The Powers bring a woman from the real world who’s seen the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer into Sunnydale to help with defeating Glory.
Status : Complete
Pairing : Spike/Buffy

My Thoughts – I normally hate stories like this, but this one was surprisingly well done. The OC  fun, sassy, and at times downright hilarious and watching her talk circles around Angel is well worth the read.

Compelled to play again by hotpoint – The shaper of things decides to replay the game from an earlier level…

Pairing – Multi
Status : Complete

My Thoughts – This fic starts off strong, with interesting twists and turns, but the further down the rabbit hole you go the less sense it begins to make. Even still I think it’s worth a read and somehow even after it starts to tie its self into knots you find yourself compelled to continue reading.
