You just found me in the wrong u n i v e r s e. That’s all. This is, as they say, the darkest timeline. Everywhere else, nay, “everywhen” else — us in the Civil War, us in Ancient Egypt, us in the swinging ’60s — we are happy.
If this theory holds, well, by the law of averages, there had to be one universe — just this one — where we don’t end up together. Here and now just happens to be it.
If you’re sad, do like I do and just think of the other ‘verses. The ones where I believe in love and where I don’t hate myself and where I never feel the need to kamikaze relationships. A universe where we can have nice things.
Because you could have loved me forever. And maybe in another universe, I let you.
I tried to organize this but wow did that not work
The Girls In Question (each part is different, PG-13 to R) by TigerDragon: This is my favorite series ever. Starts during Season 3 and continues on until after Season 7. Sexy, fluffy, angsty, funny—what more do you want?
The Damned Series (NC-17) by Bkitty: Two short parts, and then a third epic-ish ending (like SO SO long it’s perfect). Post-Season 7 fic. Both Faith and Buffy have OC love interests, but this one of the funniest, most well-written, and in-character fics ever.
The Fire In Her Eyes (M) by Imrryr: This is a WIP, but you’re already able to tell how heartbreaking and satisfying the story will become as it progresses. Faith comes back from prison at the end Season 4 because the scoobies need her—Buffy doesn’t want her.
Most anything Electra has written (I especially like After The Fall and Walk The Line)
Chutes and Ladders (M) by aliceinwonderbra
The Tell Tale Tail (not rated, i’d give it PG) by Imrryr
What We Got (Is Everything) (G) by deird1
Smut (just assume it’s NC-17):
Champagne , Five Times Buffy Lied & The One Time She Didn’t, and All The Lives That Could’ve Been Saved by Sapphire Smoke (praying that she finishes some of her WIP’s but they’re good even unfinished so)
Most everything by Mac on Humor, Heart, Heat
Check out Dylan for smut and plot
Better Luck with Girls (R) by shrift
There are so many more, but these are my favorites!
Bonus: go read Forging Bonds by rebelrsr on AO3. It’s Faith/Tara and it’s a prequel to one of their other stories and it’s perfect
