|All the Tea in China|
This is a Spike and Wes vignette (not slash), in which nothing really happens but a little understanding about choices, and some really good whiskey gets drunk.

|Around the Block|
Dawn comes to Spike with a proposition and the two of them end up discovering a few truths about each other -- and about that special slayer-someone in both their lives.

If you had been chosen by heaven, how could you live again on earth after being unchosen? A prose experiment in two voices, set in and after The Gift.

|Better Left Unsaid|
Buffy gets a glimpse of different aspects of Spike's personality, and finds that the things she thought she knew about him -- and how she feels about him -- might not be everything she believed.

|The Price for Flight|

Post-Grave, Spike/Buffy, 7745 words.
|A Sea of Gold|
A bit of self-indulgence in the form of a character-study vignette about Spike's love for Buffy. Written right after the musical episode, it probably will contradict all upcoming canon, but c'est la guerre.

|The Valorous Vampire|
"In the entire history of Slayers from the pre-classical to the current, only one has had consensual sexual relations with sanguisugent biologically non-viable desouled beings. This paper examines Buffy Summers and her past and current relationships with two such creatures, and seeks explanation of how such relations may affect the outcome in the fight against Evil, particularly in regards to the Vampire Spike, AKA William the Bloody." Council of Watchers Journal, November, 2002.
Early Season Seven, 5563 words.
