I've been trying to find a story for a while now. I read it not too long ago but I don't remember the title or author. I just remember some parts.
-Spike and Xander are transported/travel somewhere (spell/ portal?), some sort of desert, very hot, nothing around for miles, to look for something
-Xander stops breathing a couple of times, at first Spike doesn't care but when it keeps happening and lasts longer he gets worried
-They get to a tent where an old woman? gives something to Xander to help him but Spike doesn't trust her
The next part I'm not sure if it's part of the same story or a different one
-They meet up with Angel who's also looking for the same thing
-All 3 of them hide in a cave, trying to escape from people/demons also after what they're looking for

I hope someone can make sense out of all that and knows the story.

Thanks in advance
Marianne

EDIT: Thank you!! It was Ship of the Desert I was trying to find. The parts with Angel are apparently from another story.

The first half is from Witling's "LAND OF THE LOST", but I'm uncertain about the 2nd half of your search. It's not in this fic, though.

Here's the link to it, btw. . It's at Spanderfiles.

On second glance, I don't see the bit with the old woman in this one, but it fits some of your criteria. The old woman bit sounds so familiar, though! I know I've read it in something.

Pretty sure that's Witling's Ship of the Desert (written for me! :) - I'm not sure about links at spanderfiles or her website, but the lj parts are linked from my memories (the first part is called Contribution Spander, the rest are in order and under their own title.) Those entries may be flocked but hopefully with the title you can locate it elsewhere if needed.

Well, at least I got the Witling bit right ;) She apparently wrote more than one desert/portal fic, huh?

I guess? I don't remember the other offhand, will have to check it out.

Yeah. Land of the Lost's a bit dark in places but what of Witling's isn't, right? I'm going to have to reread "ship of the desert', myself!

Here's Ship of the Desert, also at Spanderfiles. Both good fic. Both about deserts and portals, lol.

Not the fic you're looking for as I see that it was found, but thought that I'd drop this rec anyway. It's A Wold of Their Own by Jameschick. It's was first came to mind when reading the description given...as there is a portal, desert, Xander with breathing trouble. I'll just drop the link and then go read the other stories in the comments.
