I've hunted and hunted through my bookmarks, but if I have this one tagged, the tags aren't ringing any bells.  All I can remember is a couple of brief bits.

Spike is missing, and Xander asks Willow to perform a locator spell on him.  She can't find him, so Xander thinks Spike dusted.  For some reason, Angel takes control of Xan.  (I don't know if Spike had claimed him, and Angel takes over the claim, or what.)  Anyway, Spike comes back, and Xander's all confused about what to do - he wants to go with Spike, but either Angel won't let him, or Angel threatens Spike, or Xan thinks Spike doesn't want him.  I remember Spike yelling at Angel that he was messing up Xander's head.  And then (at some point) Spike ends up with Riley as a thrall (or something similar) and offers Angel a trade.  Once he has Xander back, Spike makes Xander figure out what he did wrong by allowing Angel to take over.  Something about Xan letting his demon rule him?  Except I don't think Xander was a vamp, so -

Yeah, I could be confusing myself with more than one story.  Sigh.  Does this sound at all familiar to anyone?

Ummm - maybe LitGal's Second Verse?

I love this story. It's the Second Verse series by lit_gal Everything you mentioned takes place specifically in the 3rd part, Out of Tune. You can find the index here: http://www.litgal.org/ficbuffy.htm and Out of Tune http://litgal.org/Secondverse/oot1.htm.

Yes, yes ... thank you so much. I couldn't find it because I don't have that particular story bookmarked ... I have the entire Buffy page marked. D'oh. :D

Me too. I've recently started going back and reindexing and summarizing my bookmarks.

It probably didn't help that the fic summary sounds nothing like what the story ends up becoming. I held off reading it for awhile because it didn't sound interesting to me. I've loved everything lit_gal has ever written so it was no surprise that when I gave in and read this I loved it too. It's one of my favorites!

Yup, I've been slowly tagging my fics using Delicious, and it's helping - but I have almost 1300 stories bookmarked, so it's taking some time. (I follow three fandoms fairly regularly - BtVS, NCIS, and Magnificent 7) and probably half a dozen others that I like at least a few stories in. So yeah - time-consuming. But I'm getting there.

Hm, of all Litgal's stories - I think I'd have to waffle between either Curves verse, or Trickster verse as a favorite. Although at the moment, I'm just finishing re-reading the Broken verse. I'll probably move on to Butterfly Kisses after that - I wanted to wait until it was done before I started it.

And then there's Kay ... such a fabulous author, and she writes in two of my favorite fandoms. But I digress - which is pretty much the norm for me.

Thanks again for your help, and for being so dang quick. :D
