Jeanny's Short Stories!

What can I say about these stories? Well, they're longer than the drabbles and the short, short fics...and shorter than the epics. That just about covers it. Most of them are one chapter only, though you will find a few multiple chapter fics on this page. Some are funny, some are angsty, some are even kinda's just like the show!

Fill In The Blanks My very first fic ever! Between Triangle and Checkpoint, Willow tries to make amends by helping Giles with a problem. Rated PG

A Fair Fight Buffy, Xander and Willow try to have a night off at a carnival. This is a fluffy Season 1 piece I wrote after The Gift to comfort myself. Rated G

Thank The Fifth Dimension Spike, Giles and Cordelia use a hot air balloon to try to stop the Hellmouth from being opened. I still don't know what Season it takes place in... Rated PG

Reconnect Willow has an encounter with her mother after Joyce's death. Rated PG

Stuff That Happens While You're Making Other Plans One of my personal favorites! Xander's POV of life and love on the Hellmouth. Kind of an alternative Season 5 piece. Rated PG

Part 1 - The Dark
Part 2 - The Light

All The Rage Riley's POV as he battles a different kind of demon. This is based on a challenge from the Challenge In A Can site, which I highly recommend. Rated PG-13

Amateur Night Anya is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters. Here she's fulfilling a lifelong dream, and dragging the Scoobies along for the ride. It also has a little Angel crossover action! Rated PG

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8
