Chapter 1: "Angel"
Chapter notes: softcore angst and fluff, h/c, could be alternate s6; no mentions of Angel. Written for Seasonal Spuffy, spring 2016.
what's it like where you are?
most of the time,
I'm tired, I don't want to play games.
Chapter 2: "Doppelgängland"
season 6, angst with a dash of smut
Written for Seasonal Spuffy, spring 2016
play Mistress of Pain every night.
Will grabs her from behind
mouth at her throat
would that mean we have to snuggle?
No more! you freak
the thing she came here to get
looks at her
It's horrible. That's me?
What do we do now?
I have a really bad idea that's good
We come hard and fast
like a nightmare
Chapter 3: "Welcome to the Hellmouth"
Could be s5, melodramatic schmoop with some angst.
Written for Seasonal Spuffy, spring 2016. Betaed by tumblr user alightintheswamp.
her face echoing in the emptiness
her voice inside my blood
her eyes the morning light
I burn down
I don't know me.
(a million people died
as plague I kill to live)
everything there is about yourself
full of streaming sunlight
Buffy steps in.
Chapter 4: "Fool for Love"
Mostly s6 themes.
This was the first experiment.
VAMPIRE. only business, bad thing, dirt. She RUNS.
Nowhere to go.
The Vamp brings fire into the night.
Holds to balls and a bottle
up from below
you need to see
Buffy Summers. the One. That's scary.
And tomorrow, I'm planning to be a man
Chapter 5: Hush
Angst, all caps, and a lucky typo. Sounding-board services provided by tumblr user alightintheswamp.
- CONTINUING - MORNING
Buffy sees a GIRL. The girl's face is lined with tears.
A BOY, pounding on someone's door.
- CONTINUING - MORNING --
awaiting anything that makes sense
Chapter 6: Some Assembly Required
Reanimation Spuffy! \o/ This script was so fun to mutilate.
@alightintheswamp was a great help as usual, including actually finding the two starting lines.
at the graveyard
both coffins empty
Can you take me downstairs,
down the spine,
muscles and tendons,
MAKE ME FEEL
like a human person.
But, it's not... doable, is it? I mean, making someone from scraps?
an electrical current combined with an adrenaline boost...
she'll be ready by sunrise.
a woman's body, with muscles, joints,
Chapter 7: "The Prom"
Pre-chip Spuffy. ^^ Made of Marti Noxon's shooting script of "The Prom".
Originally posted on tumblr for BtvS anniversary week. Tumblr user alightintheswamp helped me with revision.
is kind of a broad term
just like love
what can I say?
space leaves captivity
not a person! MONSTER, natch'
vicious foe trained to kill
on the tape --
tasty snack treat with brains
deadly ice cream kicking ass
we should dance
God in Heaven it's good to
party like HELL HOUNDS
fiercest babies let go
everything's perfect wild fun
come die with joy
dance not gone but mellowing
Chapter 8: "Enemies"
Season 5 Spuffy.
Made of Douglas Petrie's shooting script of "Enemies".
In which I go wild with the coloring possibilities of Microsoft Word. Also, there are suddenly rhymes everywhere. Also also, this one's NSFW.
I posted this, too, on tumblr a few weeks ago, and alightintheswamp helped - same as the other three poems in this batch.
Whatever happened to the still-beating heart of a virgin?
Frolicking of some kind?
a goldfish bowl with a single goldfish inside.
It's self-defense and butchery at the same time.
maybe it's too late for me to figure it out.
did it get really cold in here?
Between the sacrifice
(a roaring fire keeps growing as we:
BLACK OUT END OF ACT TWO Act Three)
I was thinking of stabbing you through the heart.
Eeugh, awful things. Unsanitary.
Killing her's fine, but this -
it's not some vampire thing. Where do I start?
Fruit basket? Evisceration?
I just want you to know you're a screamer
She strains at the chains.
Chapter 9: "Graduation Day"
Season 7 Spuffy.
Made of Joss Whedon's shooting script of Graduation Day Part Two.
in extreme slow motion,
finally feel the fever break.
Try to stay calm.
Let us work.
The bones will set, and the damage is repairable.
Scar tissue fades.
All of this is dependant on control.
I've been working on it. The important thing is containment
to sustain the change.
Don't stoke it up.
There's something I need
in a terrified way
She carries something wrapped
avoiding the flames
piece by piece
reaching out of the wreckage
need I say we don't have a moment
to deal with this,
to begin to find...
Chapter 10: "The Zeppo"
Clearly, a "Chosen" outtake. Made of Dan Vebber's shooting script of "Zeppo".
This one is basically a dick joke. NSFW.
I'm thinking how I wanna spend my last night on Earth.
do you wanna bake?
Of course I wanna bake like the proverbial bat out of hell.
She throws him onto the bed, straddles him
and kisses the shit out of him.
I love you...
We hear bodies being thrown around,
and we hear HIS SCREAMS
AND THE SOUND OF
DICK BEING EATEN.
Chapter 11: "Never Kill a Boy on the First Date"
Time travelling blackout Spuffy! I imagine this starts post-series.
Made of the transcript of Never Kill a Boy on the First Date, which was written by Rob Des Hotel & Dean Batali, directed by David Semel, transcribed by AleXander Thompson.
This bit rated T for attempts to make doomsday prophecies sound dirty.
The tenses are a mess. This happens when you time travel.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Buffy has a really important date.
I'll just jump in my time machine
go back to the point we have a chance
tonight I'm a pale horse with death as its rider
Just a girl who knows no shame
taste fire all around. It's a liquid.
there won't be anybody tellin' us what to do
we just went home
Sorry I was late, I was waiting for a vampire
from monster to more
That'd be you
we don't have any clocks
How 'bout we try it again?
I'll see you then!
that is *so* good, I will see you
I'll be closer
there'll be time enough
I never may have been as far as I thought.
