    Summary

    Anna Strong is trying desperately to live up to her name as she juggles a struggling tea shop, a sort-of-ex who quite frankly needs to stop smiling at her like that, and a heap of debts. Edmund Hewlett is a newly-transplanted lawyer still finding his place in this new city. This is a story about new love, making peace with the past, and finding common ground between two strong-willed, opinionated people who are extremely different and yet perhaps, in the end, very much alike.

    Because every ship needs—nay, DESERVES—a coffee tea shop modern AU. Will contain roughly 40% plot, 40% fluff, a splash of angst, occasional sexytimes, manifold heartfelt discussions about the natural sciences and sociopolitical philosophy, and more tea blends than you can shake a musket at.

    Summary

    More than a year post NFA, Buffy is in self-imposed exile. Her only solace is a robot that looks like the vampire who sacrificed himself in a cave under Sunnydale. Spike is unable to stay away, only he's fighting his own inner battles he doesn't want to burden her with. Impersonating a robot for a few days should be easy, right?

    Beta'd by Gort. Written for the 2017 EF Reunion Challenge.

    Summary

    Buffy might dream of a normal college life but she got stuck with an annoying vampire instead. Spike’s found the Gem of Amara, but he won’t kill her and has taken to lurking around campus. Things go from bad to worse when they’re both captured by The Initiative and Maggie Walsh takes a special interest. Is Buffy crazy for relying on a vampire to help her put a stop to the professor’s genetic experiments, or is she discovering that normal might be overrated?

    Begins at Harsh Light of Day before going AU.

    Fair warning: Spike starts out fairly evil and the Initiative stuff is grim but not too graphic. There is some creepy medical experimentation going on in here, but not for too long. No hair was harmed in the writing of this fic.

    Updates are posted at EF before going up here.
