Five Names Angel Called Buffy
By a2zmom
Rating: G to R, depending on section
I don't own. If I did, you can bet your life, Angel would have been wearing a lot less clothes.
I suspect that some of these sections are cheating, but maybe not. Also, mushier than usual. Or not, your call.

Five Names Not Found in the Watchers' Diaries
By Lynne
Rating: R? I guess.
Summary/Notes: A while back, [info]thatotherperv did a post about her own personal canon. I started to do one, but realized it was all about the names that Spike and Angel call each other in my fic - mostly while they're having sex. And then last night I started thinking about the backstory behind each name, and then there was fic. Technically, one of these names does appear in the Watchers' Diaries, but it's the context that's important, so just go with it. :)
Pairing: Angel/Spike, in all their incarnations
Warnings: Biting. Daddy!kink, but in a twisted evil sort of way.

Summary: Is it better to not make promises if you can’t keep them?
Disclaimer: Thank you, Joss, for sharing.
Spoilers: Canon from both BtVS and AtS, mainly early seasons, and vague comic canon.

Thanks to Buffyworld.com for the transcript excerpts from Halloween, Innocence, Enemies,Welcome to the Hellmouth, and Chosen respectively. A big thank you to my betas, Married_n_mich, Mommanerd, Soundingsea, and Sunnyd_lite. Without them there may not have five things or an R rating.

A/N: Written for the IWRY ficathon. Special thanks must be extended to Kita for the line in Losing My Religon that made my thoughts for The Mermaid's Tale suddenly make sense, and a2zmom's vision of Liam as painter that gave my Liam a reason to be in the room with Buffy.

By Sionnain
Rating: PG
Pairing: Buffy/Angelus
Summary: These are things everyone does.
AN: Another one of my purposefully timeline-vague, backstory-less B/Aus vignettes of which I am recently enamored. Thanks to both carlos_thedwarf for reading over and helping me figure out what to name this when I couldn't make the words come out. *G* I’ve been trying to write one of these “Five things” fics for forever, but my brain doesn’t work around thematic lines and I've been failing to make the five things connect. So this is an experiment. I hope that I made it work. Feeback would be great.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: He's always there. Even when he isn't.
Warnings: All kinds of non-Spike people in Buffy's bed. I know, I know, but I promise the title applies. Also, this is just ridiculously filthy. And distressingly Spuffy-partisan. Oh, and Season 8 spoilers.

By bibliophile-42

Five Ways Buffy And Angel Never Raised Connor

Summary: Five Ways Buffy and Angel never raised Connor, or any other children.
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don’t own either Buffy or Angel. Joss Whedon, The WB, UPN owns them. Please don’t sue. I’m poor.
Spoilers: The entire Buffy & Angel series is fair game.
Additional Notes: I’ve read other fandoms and they all have at least one five ways this never happened fic, so I thought I’d write my own. These are alternative ways the Buffy/Angel verse could have gone down. AU scenes follow canon until an event/whatnot happens differently.

Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don’t own either Buffy or Angel. Joss Whedon, The WB, UPN owns them. Please don’t sue. I’m poor.
Spoilers: The entire Buffy & Angel series is fair game.
Additional Notes: This is my second attempt at the “Five Ways” shtick. These are alternative ways the Buffy/Angel verse could have gone down. AU scenes follow canon until an event/whatnot happens differently. Cuz, let‘s face it: Canon sucks. Plus this fic is unbeta. There will be grammar and spelling mistakes.

Disclaimer: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel the Series and all related characters belong to Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, UPN, WB, et al. I’m just taking them out for a little exercise.

Oh, and bonus points if people catch my shout-out to Firefly (pretty hard to miss) because ALL Jossverse's deserve some lovin'.
Dedication: This is for zanthinesgirl because whenever she reviews, my day is instantly brighter. Also, I am splitting the dedication to a2zmom 'cause I got her lovely spring greeting card and was sooo happy I had to write her a special little something. Part three is for you, dahliiing. *hugs*

Also, props must go to Glossolalia for giving me the idea in the first place.

Five lovers Cordelia Chase never had
By RozK
Summary: The more things change, the more they remain true.
Rating: R
Author Notes: This started with Te's idea of the AU in which Xander and Giles went to LA and Cordy and Wesley stayed behind - oh, I said over popcorn, that means. Completion has taken far too long, but this is because of writing books at the same time and having personal stuff go on.
Story Notes: Timeline: Season 4-6 BtVS. Pairings: Cordelia/Joyce, Cordelia/Glory preslash, Cordelia/Buffybot, Cordelia/Tara romance, Cordelia/Willow preslash
Disclaimer: Property of Joss and Mutant Enemy and Fox - borrowed and given back.

Rating PG

Doyle

Five Four Things That Never Happened to Allen Francis Doyle, Unless It Was In a Galaxy Far, Far Away
By Doyle
Pairing: Doyle/various (slash)
Notes: my request for the Doyleathon II was for slash, AU and a crossover. Since I couldn’t pick a fandom, I scribbled fifteen male characters on bits of paper* and picked five of them. (This was before I realized the Fight Club bit would be nearly 2000 words on its own, which is why there are only four of these) There may be just a *slight* element of crack to this fic. Also the Fight Club rules are from the book so may differ a bit from the movie.

Spike

Five Cinders That Never Burned
By Lesley
Summary: This one offers different tracks things could have gone for Spike from 1880, Entropy, Bargaining, Chosen, and ATS S5 - regular casting spoiler only, speculation only - but didn't.
Rating: NC 17
Dedication: Lori for the wonderful beta, help and support. Magpie, as ever. Diva Stardust and Miggy for sharing their respective birthday presents, and the magnificent Lovesbitca. Kita for the challenge.
Disclaimer: Belongs to Joss, ME, Fox, etc.
Pairings: Multiple. It's a set of 'what if?'s after all.
Warnings: Angst. Character Deaths - some on an epic scale. Strong language, sexual content, adult future Spawn, shameless sentimentality, gratuitous Glam Rock references, and images that some people may find disturbing - especially lovers of the Buffy character - I'm really, really not kidding on this.

Five Things Spike and Angel Never Did
By Lynne
Pairing: Spike/Angel
Genre: Five drabbles, 500 words.

Five Six Things Spike Stole After He Got a Soul new
By vinniebatman
Rating: Um, older teen for cursing and one really terrible innuendo?
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Summary: Even after he got a soul, Spike stole things, but these ones were a bit different. Ended up a bit schmaltzy and angsty, but it's what came out.
Disclaimer: I hired a pack of ninjas to kidnap Joss; he was threatened with hot poker torture and chainsaws so I could meet the real him. I now own all. Thank you. *Doctor's Note: Patient exhibits delusions of grandeur and any claims of ownership are pure fantasy. No harm is meant. Seriously, it's better than her throwing rocks at people.*
Beta: The most glorious suki_blue! I love her....

Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Warnings/Squicks: Gross abuse of fandom cliches and kinks.

Five Things That Never Happened To Spike
By Kita
Summary: Er...five things that never- yea. That. Set in seasons 4, 5, summer following S5, & two post-S7s, respectively.
Rating: R-ish for some language, violence, disturbing imagery including nearly-fluffy Spuffy, and smut of various varities. Nothing too graphic.
Thanks: Surfal, Daki, Jess, Te & Wolfing.
Disclaimers: Not mine. Joss'. No profit. No sue.

Five Things The Chip Was Never Marketed For
By Josey
Rating: Hard R.
This story assumes that Spike was recaptured during The Initiative (4.7) and offers five possible futures for him. All events after that episode happened as we saw it on screen, only without Spike’s presence. All scenarios take place during the time period of AtS season 5, so there may be a few character spoilers.
Warnings: I've been told this is pretty depressing. Contains torture (non-graphic), character death.

Five Times Spike and Buffy Almost Kissed
By lips_like_candy
Rating: PG
The five sections (leather, lamp, crypt, yellow, fight) all happen within the seven seasons of Buffy. 'Leather' is sometime between Afterlife and Flooded, 'Lamp' is shortly after Crush, 'Crypt' is after No Place Like Home but before Fool for Love, 'Yellow' is right after Who Are You?, and 'Fight' is slightly AU in School Hard.

Four Valentine's Days That Never Happened... And One That Did
By SpankSpike
Rating: NC-17 - Is There Any Other?
Summary: Valentine's Day is approaching and Spike's been having some surprising dreams and daydreams about things that could happen on the holiday. The thing that actually happens when Valentine's Day arrives is perhaps the most suprising of all.
Pairing: Spike/Angel - Also Spike/Xander, Spike/Drusilla, Spike/Fred, and Spike/Buffy

If I remember thee not
By Rivrea
Rating: G
Summary: Five Jewish holidays which Willow Rosenberg doesn't always celebrate.
A/N: 1) Written for vampedvixen's request in ninebillion's "faith in fanfiction" exchange: "What prompted Willow to deviate from her Jewish background and become Wiccan?" I don't think this fits the prompt 100 per cent, but I sincerely hope it's close enough.
Vignettes set pre-show, in late season 3, early season 5, early season 7 and post-show (without comic canon) respectively.
Title swiped from psalm 137.

Xander

Behold, Little Padawan! (aka Five Adventures Xander Harris Never Had Wrapped in One True Christmas Story)
By Lizbeth Marcs
Rating: PG

Toss in Faith who’s hopped on the bandwagon for reasons of her own, and it’s another classic Harris Christmas Special.

Five New York Minutes (That Never Were)
By NWHepcat
Rating: R
Summary:1. A reunion. 2. An awakening. 3. Another reunion. 4. A wedding. 5. A honeymoon.
Author Notes: Lyrajane's Hometown Challenge, crossed with Five Things That Never Happened. Thanks to Automatic Badgirl for wedding tales, and Herself and Luddite Robot for the beta reads.
Story Notes: Casual and not-so-casual violence, drug use, lots of darkly angsty dark angst. Except for the parts that aren't.
Disclaimer: Joss's characters belong to him in the legal sense. The new slayer's all mine, but the spell that called her belongs to Mutant Enemy. No copyright infringement intended, and no profit has/will be made from the use of said characters.

Five Scars Xander Got Paid For
By darkhavens
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Xander had always been prone to possession. There was something about him that attracted demons and trouble like ants to sugar, and something in his physical or psychological makeup that left him much more open to picking up hitchhikers of the non-corporeal persuasion.
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Notes: Written for fall_for_sx, for mini_nanowrimo and for the 4th anniversary of bloodclaim.
This can be read as a standalone but is also set in the Protected!verse, where Spike and Xander are in an established relationship and have decided that they want to be together for as long as possible, but without turning Xander. Xander bears scars and tattoos and other markings of spells and protections gifted to him by various demons. Each fic tells the story of one or more of these markings.

Five Things Xander Harris Didn’t Realize He’d Miss About Sunnydale
By julia_here
Rating: This is PG for gut pain.
All characters and their shared history belong to Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, and various contractees for the products of those two entities. Material from all seven seasons of BtVS is mentioned, as well as an item of information from Season 5 of AtS. This could be construed as what happened before The Legend of Ira Hayes.
Thanks to Mr Space for gathering information from the CIA Country Information website while I wrote. No personal disrespect for large general contracting firms, equatorial Africa, or named places in California or their employees or residents is intended, although I did draw on Shannon's hatred of Twentynine Palms.

Five Things Xander Thought He Would Never Like Doing (Until Spike Convinced Him Otherwise)
By EntreNous
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Xander never, ever likes Spike's ideas, except for when he really, really does. Each of the five parts is a drabble (100 words exactly).
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Feedback: Yes, please. Concrit welcome via email.
Warnings/Spoilers/Kinks: In order -- highlight to read -- *exhibitionism, rimming, cross-dressing, threesome, turning * *
AN: A set of linked drabbles in the "Five Things" mode (so 500 words in total) written for the fourth season of fall_for_sx. The third drabble was inspired by a prompt given by kerri_is_dead; all others were inspired by way too much Coke Zero.

Five Times Xander Doesn't Tell Spike He Loves Him (And One Time He Does)
By cordelianne

Summary: The title basically says it all, other than that this is set a number of years post-Chosen/NFA. “Weird?” Spike exhales more disapproval. “That the best you can do? What happened to your sharp wit?” He stops and tilts his head. “Oh right, that’s me.” “You’re just overflowing with funny tonight, aren’t you?” Xander shakes his head. “I’ll have you know I’ve been making people laugh since 1996.”
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Feedback: I love comments. Concrit is very welcome by email.
Disclaimer: Sadly not mine, Joss own them.
A/N: Thanks to spookymonkey for the awesome beta! Any mistakes are mine (and you're always welcome to point out any to me!).

Disclaimer: If I owned them, would they all be dead?

Five Proceedings of the We Hate Cordelia Club
By Francis Eugene
Rating: All ages
Summary: Just what the title says
Characters: Xander, Willow, Jesse, Oz, Cordelia (implied)
Spoilers: Through BtVS:Choosen and AtS:You're Welcome
AN: This is just a little idea that stopped by a few weeks ago. Maybe I've just missed them--by accident or ignorance--but I'm very surprised not to have seen anything written around or about this key aspect of Xander and Willow's lives. Please let me know if there are other stories about the WHCC.
AN2: Better late than never, but I should mention the last part of this story was inspired by a story, "Losses", by apckrfan, on FFN. At first, I didn't think that was enough to do anything with...until it struck me I could combine it with a "five things" construction. Then it just sort of wrote itself!
