Hi, um I am new to this community so I hope this is allowed. I am slightly new to this pairing and I was wondering if anyone had any stories they could suggest. I am really up to reading anything, as long as it is well written. Thank you everyone in advance!

I've written reviews of my favorite fics here but the above-mentioned "Spander Files" is probably the main site to access a multitude of different Spander fics.

BTW welcome to the wonderful world of Spander-on-the-web.

Ok, I totally agree that the Spander Files is a great place to start...but at the moment it lots just a tad funny on the main page.

Some of my favorties are

Twilight Time by Shadow

Quantum Xander & Quantum Xander II by JamesChick
(at the end of the first theres a link to the seconed)

Stranger Things by Esmeralda

Healing by JamesChick
(Actually I like a lot of Jameschick's stuff)

My Scorpion by FireHorse

Predatory Acts & Preying On My Mind by Jane
(at the end of the first theres a link to the seconed)

Lost Soul by Creedcascade and Echos Revenge
(check out the rest of Creeds buffy page while your at it, I really love that girl...she's the one that got me into slash fanfiction)

Well those are one that are just off the top of my head that stand out to me....hope you enjoy!

Anna S's S/X stories are classics. They're here.

Some of witling's wonderful completed S/X stories are here. Others can be found in her memories--root around, there's oodles of intriguing stuff there.

Both Anna and witling write remarkable prose and subtle characterizations.

As a writer, I'm no slouch either. I've got a handful of S/X stories of my own, which are here and here and here and here.

Repossession is the mother of all Spander fics. It took over 2 years to write, and new chapters produced mass hysteria somwhat similar to the HP fangirl squeeing. Why yes, i did squee....

Really, the amount and quality of fanfic in this fandom/pairing is astonishing....you have alot to read!

I completely agree with the above post, but I suggest waiting a bit before you read Repossession. It is truly the mother of all Spander fics, and for a while at least it will spoil you for anything else. At least that's what happened to me. *g*

Having said that, I suggest Across the Miles by rakshathewolf - I'm a sucker for post-Chosen Spander - and anything by titsoo is a lot of fun and very pr0nny.

Another great one that was just recently finished is Nothing the Same by orchidluv. Her memories only give about half the story, though, you'll have to get into her LJ for the rest.

Repossession... is extraordinary! And Lazuli keeps her own archive at 'The Attic' The reading is wonderful - but I would sincerely encourage you to write also! If you like the pairing, go for it. It is one of the most extraordinary experiences.

Other fiction archived by Lazuli on 'The Attic is also worth a look



PS I have a few fics if you are interested...

The first spanderfic I ever read was We're not Gay. We're Just Friends. Who Have Sex. by Julia the Younger. I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I sighed. I think it's a very good introduction to the wonderful world of spander:
Julia the Younger's fanfic site (just click on the red Spike/Xander link.)

For light-hearted and adorable, I'd recommend
Loserville by Shrift
A Week of Wrong by Anna S.

Tabaqui's spanderfic is fabulous and varied. For a relative newby I'd particularly recommend her stories Letters and Changes
Scarecrow Horses - Home of Tabaqui's fanfic

I also quite like the consistant high quality of the fics archived here -
Tales from the Attic:

21st-Jul-2007 12:20 am (UTC) - way back when
Before Spander there was S/X. You might want to try some of the real old school stuff:
Te's Post-Grad (1999), arguably the first S/X slashfic to appear online http://teland.com/buffy.html#postgrad

Mad Poetess' Pointy Stakes, right behind it w/ Chocolatey Goodness (unfortunately on permanent hiatus, although it stops at a good place)

Saber Shadowkitten, lots of short & long fic here

Whoa. I've been reading this stuff for a hella long time.

21st-Jul-2007 09:26 am (UTC) - Trust me
Anything by Litgal is great, trust me

Thank you all so much, the stories you have suggested will keep me busy for a while. ^.^
