Help with fic search for caretaker Spike? 
12th-Nov-2012 06:20 pm
I'm in the mood for any fics where Xander is crazy(in general or a la Drew) or brain-damaged or just not all 'there' for whatever reason and Spike cares for him. Anyone have any recs for fics like these that they can share?

No permanent death fics please.

As If We Should Forget We Have No Hands, by Tabaqui
Lost by Devo79

There are several that I like with Spike as the damaged part of the pair, where Xander cares for him.

My "novel" Unbreakable has Xander being rescued after being kept for five years as a gladiator slave in Africa. Spike is the only one he can connect to. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh wow. I'll make sure to check this one out. Thank you so much for the help.

I completely recomend this btw! It's a fantastic fic and one I re-read regularly

Lord, I have several, but the links aren't in Delicious, I don't think, I found them pre-Delicious. I'll have to go through the stories on the hard drive and see if I can find links.

I feel terrible for making you go through all that trouble but thanks:)

Lost by authoressnebula is worth a read - it's like a reverse Repossession, but a lot shorter!

Ride a Pale Horse by raynejelly is amazing. It's a Wip, but is nearly finished and currently sits at 39 chapters

These final two are destined to remain unfinished, but that's no reason to wallow in what's there:

Fragments by ladycat777 and xanphibian turns the hurt and angst up just about as far as it will go

And just when you thought the boy couldn't hurt any more, go read Alexandria Brown's Elegantly Wasted and don't forget to get a fluffy blankie out of the closet to curl up with while you're reading.

Enjoy - if that's the right word....

Thank you so much. This will help me kill a couple of hours while I procrastinate filling out my exit interview for school lol.

The most classic ones I know of are Beautiful Broken and Broken Revenge, both by litgal. I think they might be exactly what you're looking for, as Xander is pretty darn broken (hence the titles) and very much not himself.

Some others you might want to check out:
Animal by electricalgwen
Deep Water by _obsession_is_
Wilderness by reremouse

There's also Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me. Both Spike and Xander are grieving the loss of a loved one, and they comfort each other. However, later in the story, Drusilla comes to Xander in a dream and gives him her visions, so Spike has to take care of a Xander who is very much 'crazy a la Dru.'

Check out the H/C category at The Spander Files, then click on the 'Spike gives the comfort' button. Some of the stories already mentioned are listed there, but there are tons of others to choose from.

There are two stories where Xander has lost his memory and Spike is taking care of him, and I had to wield some serious Google fu to track them down. I didn't even know some of these archive sites were still around, but yay!

First: Don't You Forget About Me by Gypsy Gray http://sezaic.envy.nu/DYFAM.html

The second: I Forgot to Hate You by, I think, Kylia? I don't have the author on my copy. This one has some Buffy-bashing and I think it's pre-Tara. http://kylia.popullus.net/archive/fic/b-a/ifthy.html

My three favorites are:

Season 2 With a Twist: http://spanderfiles.com/arvs/shadith/stwat.html
Spike comes to Sunnydale bringing his insane lover Xander.

Lost, or Somewhere Near There: http://spanderfiles.com/arvs/angeljade/lost.html
Xander is mindsucked by Glory and when Spike finds him, he unwittingly becomes the boy's only hope of recovery.

Dead Sunflowers: http://spanderfiles.com/arvs/nastyshrew/ds01.html
Driven over the edge by the deaths of his friends, Xander tries to grip onto the tattered remains of his sanity with help from someone not entirely normal himself - Spike.
