Summary: (and all i gave you was goodbye)
Following the events of Dead Things, Spike leaves Sunnydale— this time, for good. When the First Evil comes knocking, he decides it’s time to return, and not a moment too soon. The Scoobies have fallen apart, Buffy most of all, and she never thought she’d be so grateful to see the (not-so) soulless vampire in her entire life. Things aren’t the same, anymore— can they fit in each other’s lives again, even if they want to?

Summary: When Spike burns in the caves of the Hellmouth, he doesn’t go straight to Hell… but he doesn’t exactly end up in Heaven, either. Caught in the in-between, he’s offered a choice— one that will not only change the past for him and Buffy, but also give him the chance to experience the future. Will he take it? And, if he does— what lies within the year he’d fought so hard to forget?
