Buffy and Angel are my couple, the couple I care about more than any other. I cry and laugh and agonize over them. I write about them because I love them, and I want to make everyone else cry and laugh and agonize with me.

You made this story come to life like nothing I have ever read. Your way
of describing B&A, their feelings and situation and espcecially their
clasped hands and what they feel about it was nothing short of incredible. ----- Anja*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Series of Stories
THE SIGHING GAME SERIES
The Sighing Game series was something I started during season 1. It is set in a sort of alternate version of season 1 and 2. And it puts Buffy and Angel's relationship to the test, pitting them against vampiric ememies, human disapproval, and eventually each other. The 4 stories are meant to be read in order, and the series does depart fairly radically from the show, so it'd be hard to jump into the middle and understand what's going on. The first two stories were my first two Buffy fics, and the quality does improve in the later stories.
THE SIGHING GAME
It's a fairly short story of introspective pondering and romance, in which Buffy and Angel make a decision about their relationship. It's not a great story, but the series builds off it. Here's what one reader had to say...
"It was a tender look at both Buffy and Angel's outlooks. And I like that
they are "trying" at the end, rather than the ..*Oh, but I must stay away,
for my duty and task is to slay you!* tragic lines. " ---- Anya

Part 1 I Part 2 I Part 3 I Part 4
The Anointed One makes Angel a very tempting offer, and Buffy finds there
are unexpected consequences to the events of Nights Like These. Plus sex
becomes an issue.
I HIGHLY recommend you read Nights before this one.
Here's a comment from one of the people who've read it.
"WOW ... I just got done reading your story, for probably the 3rd
or 4th time. IT'S AWESOME ... I was completely tingly and entranced by it.
AND I'M AT WORK. Hey it would be worth getting reprimanded for!!!" ---- savannah1

tendencies than she expected. Here's a comment
Wow, what a ride that was!! I've been reading these stories since the first installment and they just got better and better. I think you're right to leave it there, you wrapped everything up beautifully. ---- Bria
This is a vignette based on the second graveyard scene in Bad Eggs. It's Buffy's POV. A little angsy. A lot of love for a certain *cradle
robbing, creature of the night.*Here's feedback on the story...
"If only we could've had this on Monday night, to read alongside the
show. You are so insightful, my dear. And here I thought they were just
smooching...*grin* Loved it." ---- JustAnotherAngelLover
An introspective look at Angel's thoughts after the events of the episode
Angel.Here's a reaction to the story...
"Angst, angst, angst and more angst. What can I say, I love it!! ...
A dose of pure romance is good for the soul. :-)" ----- Melissa
LEAVING TO STAY
Is there a reason Slayers die young? This fic is set in the future when Buffy is 25, and it deals with whether it would have been better for Buffy to die earlier. Here's what one person had to say:
What a fantastic piece of fanfic. I've read many, but few compare to what
you've written. ----- Claudia
What might have happened between Buffy and Angel on Valentine's Day if
he hadn't lost his soul? This is my take on it.
Very, VERY sappy...lovey-dovey... This is denial fic...S/I and everything after never happened. Here's a thought on it...
I have to say that "Light" is the sweetest fanfic about B/A that I've
That's just how I'd think that they'd spend Valentines day together, away
from everyone else. Thanks, I think I'll survive until the next season now. -----
This one is basically a re-hash from Buffy's POV of the scene in What's My Line where Buffy goes to Angel's apartment. See what someone else thought...
"Sheesh--just when I think I'm doing fairly well at my attempts at
fiction, you had to go and write this. Now I've got to work that much harder" ---- Bill M.
Angel's POV at the end of the third season episode "Lovers Walk."
Short, angsty piece.
"A lot of these internal
reflections get too sugary, or spend too much time flashing back to the
show. Yours did neither. It was very good. I especially like how you
went into why he couldn't lie about loving her." ---- Wanderlost
WAYS TO HURT
Buffy's POV after the fight with Angel in "Sanctuary." My take on why she was acting the way she did. A bit of feedback...
"I loved this with all my heart Rebecca. This was truly beautiful.
And when I think how quickly you jumped into her frame of mind I feel bad for calling her a selfish bitch." ---- Karen
TO BE READ TOGETHER
It's a vignette from Angel's point of view about the events of
Surprise and Innocence. Based on the dream Buffy has of Angel in the sunlight. Here's a reaction...
"Ok, stop it!!!! I'm not supposed to be in tears this early in the
Nice job, Rebecca.... I think you captured that moment perfectly." ------ Terry
This is the companion piece to Dust. It's a vignette from Buffy's POV. Based on Surprise and Innocence. And yes it is another tear-jerker. Here's a comment...
" As thoroughly well written & moving of a downer as the last
one." ----- Leah
The last Buffy and Angel scene in Becoming from Buffy's POV. Very
painful. Bring a tissue. Here's one piece of feedback...
Oh my God, I'm crying again like a baby.
I loved this story, it covered every feeling I thought Buffy would be having.
After S/I you made me cry and now you have done it again. I'm not
complaining,don't get me wrong, it is great therapy.
The companion piece to Heart. It's from Angel's POV. His reflections on his last moments with Buffy, and their relationship in general. Here's a comment about the pair of stories...
Oh, Lord! I don't think that I have it in me to cry again today, I'm
so dehydrated! Stupid me, I didn't follow your tissue warning. Thank you
so much for writing these stories. While they were thearaputic for you to
write, they were the same for me to read. A real comfort in a time of sadness.
Buffy's POV after Angel leaves, mainly focused on "Graduation Day." A look at the relationship after the break-up. Here's a comment...
I really liked your story. It told a different perspective than we got in the episode, and I love POV stories that do that. I really like your writing style. Not many people can write first person fanfic convincingly, but I always enjoy your stories. ----- Diana
The companion Angel POV to Fitting. Angel tries to explain why he had to leave. A comment...
"I LOVED this story. LOVED. ADORED. It's so goddamn
clever and sweet and all those other adjectives I can't think of. And that ending is just awesome. I grovel at your feet! ----- zero
Just a bit of Angel/Buffy silliness. Please don't take this one seriously. Here's a comment...
"Hilarious Rebecca! Cracked myself up!" ---- Heather
