All4Spike (7/16 02:08pm): Contd: Then confusion reigns when someone tells friend that 'Giles' is there with a pretty young wife (so probably Buffy rather than Dawn) Maybe it's the COW after Buffy? Help?
All4Spike (7/16 02:05pm): Looking for a story - and as always, can't remember title or author. I'm even vague on details. Someone is after Buffy (or possibly Dawn) and Giles has the bright idea of getting Spike to drive her to a friends cabin somewhere that there's lots of big trees...

Sigyn (7/15 02:50am): “What Happens in Quarantine” is done. I repeat, this is not a drill, bewildered’s exquisite fic “What Happens in Quarentine” is complete! Can we get a wa-hoo.

Tasha (7/15 01:06am): When I just checked your stories, @EncantedWillow, it showed two chapters
EnchantedWillow (7/14 11:26pm): Congrats @Tasha! I *think* I just posted Chapter 2 as well. Are chapter postings delayed? I know I cut it to the wire and I've never uploaded here before so just want to make sure I did it right. It shows the chapter title under manage stories but the table of contents still says one chapter.
Tasha (7/14 10:00pm): Whoo hoo ... I got the second week's prompt chapter posted as well. I'm already ahead of the last time I tried to follow the prompts in 2022. {laughs}
