Warning: This is my personal list of reminders, for the purposes of re-reading and recommending BtVS fics that are NOT crossed with SG1 or SGA (see my recently updated list of SG1-related crossover fanfic faves and recs for BtVS/SG1 crossovers, as well as my list of SG1 crossover fics unrelated to BtVS and list of crossover fics unrelated to BtVS or SG1), so there may well be spoilers in A FEW of the descriptions below. I'd advise you to skip reading the descriptions and just click on the links to check the stories out for yourself, if you're extremely concerned about plot or relationship spoilers. Otherwise, please enjoy this very incomplete listing of some of the stories I've enjoyed reading and re-reading over the years!

* * * * *

Batman (and/or DC Universe in general):

"JLA and the Slayers" SERIES by Nycorson (post-"Chosen" Xander finds himself forcibly sidelined by Willow and Buffy, but accepts a job offer to train newly awakening Slayers in the DC/Justice League universe, where they've never had Slayers before):

"Financial Supporters" by Sheilynn (Buffy/Bruce; delightful one-shot):

"Bat Signals and Stakes" SERIES by Damia (Dawn/Dick Grayson):

"The Joyce Summers School for Gifted Girls" by MaeveBran (Buffy/Bruce; technically unfinished at 12 chapters, but ends in a good place):

"The Wrong Girl" by FaithUnbreakable (very DARK Buffy/Bruce fic, with coda linked at the bottom of the story; set post-The Dark Knight):

(WIP) "Gotham Slayer" by CousinMary (epic-length story of what happens when Buffy and Dawn move to Gotham after Sunnydale's destruction, where Buffy finds herself accidentally adopting a masked vigilante persona and quarreling with Batman, neither knowing that they're also dating one another as Bruce and Buffy; not updated since 2010, but still worth reading):

(WIP) "In Darkest Night" by DWDuck (not updated since early 2011, but a wonderful 6-chapter AU in which newly ensouled Spike, still in Africa, gets chosen as successor to a dying Green Lantern and comes back to Sunnydale able to be of far more assistance to Buffy than anyone expected):

Battlestar Galactica:

"A Bug on the Cosmic Windscreen" by missmurchison (Spike gets picked up by a Raptor and finds ways to make himself useful among the Colonials):

Big Bang Theory:

"It's Only the End of the World" SERIES by droidgirl (Sheldon/Penny; Penny's previous encounters with 'Anne' the Vampire Slayer and with Gunn and his vampire-hunting crew prepare her somewhat for the hellish conditions in LA at the end of the AtS finale "Not Fade Away," and she and Sheldon join forces with Spike and friends to survive; HIGHLY recommended!):

"The Sublet Sublimation" by grundy (short but very cute; Dawn Summers sublets Leonard's room in Apartment 4A and has an 'interesting' time getting to know her new flatmate):

"The Undead Entropy Anomaly" by grundy (short but sweet; Dr. Dawn Summers sublets Leonard's room in Apartment 4A, but has to call Penny for reinforcements when Sheldon has an extreme reaction to learning that vampires are real):

"It's All About *Who* Says It" by mmooch (delightful short-fic; Sheldon/Buffy!):

"The Dawn Conundrum" by mmooch (3rd and final story in a series in which Buffy's allowed to R.I.P. after season 5, but can easily be read by itself; Dawn goes to live with cousin Penny in Pasadena after Buffy's funeral, rather than staying in Sunnydale, and this short-fic shows Dawn's reaction to learning about the stunt with the can-opener in the Arctic):

"The Reality-Theory Convergence" by DianeCastle (Penny's new job as office manager for the LA branch of Slayers Inc. provides almost as much entertainment and satisfaction as having Buffy and some mini-Slayers as Sheldon's new upstairs neighbors):


"It's Not the Size of the Dog in the Fight" by Samarkand (lewd, crude, and occasionally hilarious; Xander becomes a miniature Bolo for Halloween):

"Of the Line" by ghostwhowalks (Chloe, a Bolo with a soul, is called to be a Slayer only 1200 years after her sister Potentials were activated in "Chosen"): (first 4 chapters make a complete story, with the rest an unfinished epilogue venturing into multiple crossovers)

Doctor Who/Torchwood:

"Who's the Doctor?" SERIES by missmurchison (series of brief stories, starting with an AU and much more Spuffy friendly version of "As You Were" featuring the 10th Doctor and proceeding with further AU season 6 encounters with the 9th, 4th, and 7th Doctors and Dawn's ongoing friendship with the TARDIS; all 4 stories are also available on LJ at various locations):

"Golden Threads" SERIES by Jaded (Jack/Ianto/Dawn; epic story of Dawn, the Scoobies, and their whole extended family becoming closely involved with Torchwood 3 and the Doctor):

(WIP) "Tick, Tock, One Little Clock" by Doctorsgirl (eventual Buffy/Doctor; the old pocket watch Buffy adds to her Halloween 'lady' costume is from a previously used chameleon arch transformation and funnels all the energy of the Janus spell and the Hellmouth rift into Buffy's permanent transformation, erasing her existence from the minds of her friends and family on earth; calling herself 'The Slayer', she and her companions do a lot of evil-vanquishing and running around the universe, until they find the 10th regeneration of The Doctor, no longer the last of the Time Lords; incomplete, but still well worth re-reading, as Buffy and her TARDIS crew join some of the Doctor's adventures in season four):

"Many Possible Vampire Husbands of Buffy Summers" by hellbells (multi-cross, desperately in need of proof-reading like all of this author's work; Buffy becomes immortal, marries Damon Salvatore, and together they end up aiding River during "Objects in Space"):

(WIP) "Goodnight Daughters" SERIES by Syriope (not updated since 2009; Buffy and River as Academy escapees):

(WIP) "From Here to Serenity" by bastardsnow (not updated since 2007, but worth re-reading anyway; Xander and Willow hop dimensions and jump five hundred years into the future in an attempt to find Buffy after "The Gift", and they end up almost hijacking Serenity in order to get to long-lost "Earth that was", where Buffy turns out to have landed): (also at or

Gilmore Girls:

"A Schism in Stars Hollow" by Litmouse (Part of the "Father Goose" series, but can be read on its own; the Scoobies and significant others come to Stars Hollow for a convention of Xander-and-Faith impersonators, but discover there's more than just quirkiness afoot):

"In the Key of Major Finn" by Mhalachai (post-series for both BtVS and GG, Lorelai didn't get back together with Luke and Riley is a widower whose services have been made redundant by the multitude of Slayers, so . . .):

"Life Saver" by Belgintei (season 1 for GG and last half of season 7 for BtVS; Luke Danes has to tell 'former' Potential Lorelai Gilmore and current Potential Rory about the supernatural and evacuate them to Sunnydale to escape the Bringers, and the addition of these GG characters smooths out some of the emotional rough patches for Buffy and others in those final days; darker sequel "Life Saver II" has been stalled at an early point in the narrative since 2007, but main story is finished): and

Harry Potter:

"White Knights and Dark Lords" SERIES by Sherza (the summer before Harry's 5th year at Hogwarts, the new Watchers' Council -- specifically, Giles and the Scoobies -- learn of Voldemort's 'rebirth' and a prophecy that should've been Council business all along; Xander and his platonic partner in mayhem and do-gooding, Spike, take on the job of rescuing Harry from the Dursleys and training him to actually survive, along with Harry's family of choice, Sirius and Remus; Excellent stories, where Voldy and the bad guys in the Ministry of Magic get very short shrift instead of being allowed to ride roughshod over everyone for several more years, but emphatically NOT for Dumbledore-lovers):

"Uncle Quentin's Spy" by Starfox (Harry/Hermione; 'In the summer following her 4th year at Hogwarts, Hermione Granger is visited by a great-uncle she hasn’t met before, and learns that the world is older than she thought, and that wizards are not the only ones fighting the forces of Darkness.'

"A Strange Meeting Place" SERIES by Chunk127/Chunkman (Clark/Buffy; needs more proof-reading, but definitely re-readable; Clark meets Buffy in Heaven when he dies from a gunshot wound in season 4 of SV, and they bond deeply before Willow resurrects Buffy and Jor-El restores Clark; over a year later, Clark hears that Sunnydale's being evacuated and runs there to help, on the off-chance that 'Buffy Summers' wasn't just a dream as everyone else insists; the final battle of Sunnydale goes somewhat differently with Clark on hand to help, and the sequel story has many more SV/BtVS pairings coming about): or (see also sequel chapters: and

"Aliens, Mutants, and Demons" SERIES by BlueGold (SV/X-Men/BtVS cross, with only the 3rd and final story bringing in BtVS; Clark and Lex get together early in SV's timeline, and that makes a world of difference for everyone, including most of the misguided 'meteor mutants'):

"Wish" by meridian_rose (While subbing for another Vengeance Demon with a different clientele, late-season-6 Anyanka offers early season 2 Lionel Luthor a wish; Lionel's wish undoes his blindness but messes everything else up, and in desperation he turns to his new reality's Chloe Sullivan to make a corrective wish): or

Star Trek (2009) or TOS:

"Terms of Enlistment" by Crunchysunrises (young officer Christopher Pike meets a bartender with the historically rare name of 'Buffy Summers' and ends up trying to recruit her . . . for the good of Starfleet, and not at all because he wants to have lots of sex with her! Really!):

"A Watcher's Son" by AlecStar (primary crossover is with The Sentinel, with Rupert Giles turning out to be Blair's unknown father in the latter part of season five of BtVS, but then Methos gets recruited in later, post-"Chosen" chapters to become a Slayer Watcher, and things get even more interesting):

"Not a Dream, Fairy Tale, or Imaginary Story" by Batzulger (primarily a "Grimm"/BtVS crossover epic, with a secondary cross with "The Sentinel" in the form of a now Guide-less Jim Ellison, and a minor cross with "Fringe"; many years post-Chosen, Buffy and Dawn move from Cleveland to Portland, where Dawn teaches at a local university while Buffy works as a homicide detective, coming to terms with the heretofore largely unknown world of Wesen and Grimms and partnering with another recent transfer from Cascade PD named Jim Ellison; when the Norse Gods start working some major world-ending mischief in the Portland area, Buffy has to use all the available resources of Slayers, Watchers, Grimm, Sentinel, Wesen allies, and one reluctant Chaos Mage, in order to thwart their plans; no pairings at all other than those in "Grimm" canon, but good detective and adventure story-telling):

"Many Possible Vampire Husbands of Buffy Summers" by hellbells (multi-cross, desperately in need of proof-reading like all of this author's work; Buffy becomes immortal, marries Damon Salvatore, and in the second half of the story they end up aiding River Tam during the Firefly episode "Objects in Space"):
