Fanvid: Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed by rebelliouspixels / Jonathan McIntosh (PG-13)
In this re-imagined narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's an example of transformative storytelling serving as a pro-feminist visual critique of Edward's character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy's eyes, some of the more sexist gender roles and patriarchal Hollywood themes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed - in hilarious ways. Ultimately this remix is about more than a decisive showdown between the slayer and the sparkly vampire. It also doubles as a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21ist century.

Death Brings Clarity Trilogy JK Philips (R)
Post-“Gift” epic. Giles has a moment of clarity, but it’s too late. How he deals with Buffy’s death and how she comes back to him.

The Slayer is dead.

She leaves behind her friends, her sister, and her Watcher.

He should not be so surprised. He has read the Watchers’ Diaries, whose pages all end so abruptly. He has been raised and guided towards this destiny since the age of ten. And so he should have known that this moment was inevitable.

But she was not like the others. And in the end, she did not die like the others. Not cut down by her foe in battle, his Slayer sacrificed herself to save her sister and the world. And he is left alone, empty, a lifetime’s purpose lying dead atop the rubble before him.

But there is another who can understand his pain, a dark power who will not let this Slayer rest in her grave. And though he believes he has already lost everything with her death, he will learn that he still has more to lose…

Phoenix Burning made no attempt to dovetail into a possible season 6 and bravely set off into full-on AU with tremendous results, and became one of those do-not-miss stories in the fandom. It takes place 350 years in the future where the supernatural is no longer a dirty little secret: the demon situation is out of control, and the Watchers’ Council, also no longer secret, decide they need more help and bring back five of the greatest slayers, including Buffy as I’m sure you’ve guessed.

Of Old Mystics by Wolfling and Magpie (NC-17)
Picking up after the events of the last episode of Buffy, it begins with Giles breaking former foe-slash-former friend-slash-former lover Ethan Rayne out of a facility of the Initiative (the Initiative being a covert government funded supernatural investigate/testing operation) where he's been held captive for the last couple of years. They return to England and begin to heal, physically and mentally, while building a life together. What I particularly enjoyed were the sections devoted to fleshing out the backstory between Giles and Rayne, as in how the two came to meet and what kept them together.

The Night of 100 Stars by Robert A. Black (PG)
Mulder and Scully come to Sunnydale to investigate paranormal goings-on. They've barely entered the town limits when strangers start popping up all over town, some of whom aren't even from Earth. Some of whom aren't even human. Some of whom like to dress up in brightly colored spandex and who are guaranteed to worsen every possible situation by attacking indiscriminately and speaking with overblown emphasis.
