I thought it would be nice to have a master list like we've had in past years, so I put one together (in the order they were revealed during November).

Stardust by xspike4evax
Rating: General Audiences
Summary: Angel reflects upon his human day with Buffy.
Words: 455

Unconquerable Souls by Taaroko
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Summary: Wishverse. With the help of the White Hats, Buffy and Angel have, for the most part, taken Sunnydale back from the monsters. Now, one thing after another keeps coming along to make sure they can't enjoy the fruits of their labors, from a lengthy Council inspection, to the fine print of Angel's curse, to the return of Darla.

This is a sequel to "Windows to the Soul," the Wishverse fic I wrote for the 2010 IWRY marathon (holy crap it's actually been seven years). In that fic, Buffy and Angel survived the battle in the Master's factory because Buffy did a better job of timing her crossbow shot than in canon, and things developed from there. "Unconquerable Souls" picks up a few months after the end of that one, sometime in the spring of '99. You don't necessarily need to read that one first for this one to make sense, but it would probably help.

Missing You by angelus2hot
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Summary: No matter how much time has passed she still misses him.
Words: 311

Despite the Consequences by angelus2hot
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Summary: Angel gives into temptation.
Words: 224

Chase the Darkness by angelus2hot
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Summary: Angelus wasn't Angel but he was the next best thing.
Words: 600

Stronger Together by Taaroko
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Summary: AU from before the final scene of "Disharmony" and about the middle of "Intervention." After the events of "Epiphany," Darla is on her way out of Angel's life for good when she finds out about his visit to Sunnydale in "Forever." She's not going to stand for it. Inspired by the recent "Insert Scene" thread on Buffy-Boards, as well as the intriguing parallelism between Angel/Darla and Buffy/Spike. Fueled by all the years I've spent wanting to write a fic that gives Spike his comeuppance for the BuffyBot and failing to think of a plausible way to do it. So, yeah, definitely not a fic for Spike fans.

This is how I imagine things might've gone differently in the shows if the writers had been more practical about Spike, less allergic to letting the title characters be happy, and there had been no limits on crossovers.

(Not sure I like the title. Might change it.)

I thought this project had ended--what a delight to find you--and so many long-term, gifted fans--devoted to a story that is ageless. I feel privileged to see you are still feeling the greatest, if not most profound, beliefs in the deepest, yet most human connection, as you have so passionately expressed for these two.

Thank you for providing this triumphant herald to joy because nothing less than this love is indeed the story every honest heart knows to be true.

HUGS!
