Title: Unbreakable

Pairing: Spike/Xander
Categories: Hurt/Comfort, Post-Canon, Drama
Length: Super Epic (104,427 words)
Warnings: Violence, slavery, rape, murder, recovery, secondary character death

Summary:
It's five years past "Not Fade Away." Spike works freelance for the Watcher's council. Xander went missing for a long time, until Spike found him. Now, Spike must help Xander recover from long, hard years in captivity.

Review:
Xander was captured and sold into a demon slave ring in Africa. By chance, Spike finds him at a slave auction and returns him to the Scooby gang. His recovery is a rough one and knowing his friends won't be able understand what he went through he turns to Spike to help him through it.

Another 'classic' of the fandom. Xander is much changed by his years of captivity, although the lovable 'doughnut boy' still lurks underneath. :) Spike has also changed quite a bit, he's still recognizable as Spike but he's not quite so rough around the edges anymore.

It's a thoroughly engrossing read.

Review:
This is a Classic Spike/Xander story, anyone that likes the ship should read this fic. It's one of my go to fics when I want to re-read a BtVS fic. This fic is almost always on any 'rec list' given to Spander Newbies. ;)

It's one of those stories that once you start reading, you just can't stop and you never want it to end. It has a compelling plot and is beautifully written. Don't let the Hyena!Xander or the Soldier!Xander throw you off, it's not a creature!fic.

Summary:
“Spike's human. Xander's not. There's pie and a diner dive somewhere in Pennsylvania.”

Review:
I love stories dealing with Spike post-Shanshu, and this is probably one of the best of them. Spike isn’t thrilled about his humanity, which really works well for his characterization.

The idea of Spike-the-human teaching Xander-the-vampire how to be a better vampire is ingenious. And Xander just going along with it is pretty priceless as well. All in all, this is a fun, fast read.

Chocolate Hurricane by cicirossi (NC-17)

Title: Chocolate Hurricane
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Categories: crack, humor, something made them do it, angst, some darkness, some hurt/comfort (if you count sexual healing)
Length: long (~33,000 words)
Warnings: dub/non-con on both sides (at least at points), despite the cracky premise there are some seriously dark things going on in this fic—not for the faint of heart

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] cicirossi
Author Website: this seems to be adware heavy so I’m not linking it

Review:
Xander arrives home one day to find a box of chocolate waiting for him in his mailbox. He eats it. And then things start to go cock-eyed.

This is one of the best premises ever written in Buffy-‘verse. And it’s remarkably well-executed at that. Cicirossi does a great job of cutting the humor with the suspense. And cutting the suspense with the sex. And the sex. And, you guessed it, the sex.

The characterizations are quite good in this. Both Xander and Spike are in character more often than they’re out of it. And the ‘big bad’ is unexpected and fairly satisfying. All in all a very fun read with a dark twist or two along the way.
