Fic type search... 
11th-Oct-2008 07:57 pm
I was hoping you good people could help me find a fic(s). What I'm looking for is fics where they don't immediately get together. Let me see if I can explain that better. It seems like most of the fics I read with Spander have Xander and/or Spike crazy lusting after each other and as soon as they find out it's mutual they become all lovey dovey and smooches. That's nice but I was wondering are there any fics where it takes them awhile to get to the lovey dovey stuff? Maybe slowly falling in love or even at the beginning of the fic hating each other but circumstances allow them to get to know each other and fall in love? Happy endings a must and the longer the better. :) (No vamp!Xander, please, but Xander with some kind of powers is fine. Thanks)

Thanks for the help.

I have been to spander files numerous times. I don't know if I've ever checked those categories or not so I'll go check them out now. Thanks

These are all my favorites... well I haven't read Melissa's fic yet but I'm going to go try it out now and then reread the ones I haven't read in forever. Thanks

I was just wondering if Civilized Conversations and Afterwards Remember were two separate fics... Because if they are, I would love to read Afterwards Remember. =)
Thank you.

"Afterwards Remember" is a sequel to "Civilized Conversations" and as I recall there is another fic in the series that you can find on the site.

My personal favorite is Misconceptions by Iamthelizardqueen. However, it is mpreg, so that may squick you. *g*

I love Misconceptions but I had lost the link to it. Thanks

I have a few...

Home
Feral!Verse (Looooooonnngggggg)
Gemelli!Verse (A two-Xanders fic, and it's a WIP but I plan to finish it in the next two weeks)
Incubus (WIP)
Small and scaly (WIP)
I guess Lost could be thought of as fitting what you asked for even if Spike and Xander are already a couple at the beginning (Hard to explain so check it out)

I update all my WIP's often.

You can find them all here in my fic index: http://devo79.livejournal.com/14591.html

Kimalis recently finished an epic that had the boys attracted to each other but not *boom* falling into each other's arms - Family Bonds.

One of my favorites is Jacksons "Sweet Revenge" Spike basically tries to get revenge on buffy for hurting him and then eventually falls for xander.

If you don't mind a self-pimp, my Nothing the Same fits the description.
