Conditionally Yours                                          ***New Story - 2018***

Angel places conditions on Angelus' claim over Cordelia.

CONTENTS: C/A & C/Aus in BtVS 


AUTHOR'S NOTES:

A 'What if...' excerpt from my 'Double or Nothing' ficverse. Somewhat open-ended, the story does not encompass the entire 50+ chapter fic, nor focus on all of its basic challenges. It's just a good excuse for naughty behavior.

Connections Trilogy

Be a witness as the world falls into chaos for the Chosen One, the Vampire, and his Seer-to-Be as magic causes the universe to take a C/A twist during 'The First Connection'. The Oracles reveal all to the Lower Being in their midst as Angel discovers he must sacrifice it all to save the ones he loves.


Angel gets another chance during 'The Next Connection' when he discovers that Cordelia is also living in Los Angeles. He must protect her from the truth of what really happened in Sunnydale. The lie is the only thing preventing the rediscovery of the love Cordelia no longer knows exists.


When finally it seems like there are no further doubts or lies between them, Cordelia and Angel are faced with a blast from the past in 'The Eternal Connection'. Darla's return causes Angel to become obsessed with saving her. Initially supportive, Cordelia begins to doubt Angel's motives when his behavior changes for the worst. Wolfram & Hart's strategy appears to be working when Cordy makes a last-ditch effort to save Angel and their future together. 

AUTHOR'S NOTES:

This trilogy is intended to be C/A & C/Aus at its heart, but it does include multiple relationships both canon and non-canon. My introduction to fandom came by reading fanfics at multi-shipper sites, so TFC's content was largely influenced by that style.


TFC CONTENTS: C/Aus & C/A & C/A/B in BtVS

References to B/A, C/X. S/D, and includes non-con Willow/Angelus and Willow/Angel) and relationships (C/A/B). 


TNC CONTENTS: C/A in AtS

While this story is basically all C/A, it does contain C/Aus flashbacks and refers to TFC relationships. 


TEC CONTENTS: C/A & C/Beige!Angel in AtS

Includes Darla/Beige!Angel UST and Darla/Aus in flashbacks.


CATEGORY: Alternate Universe

This story weaves itself directly into the canon world using dialogue and events from BtVS & AtS to create a framework for the Oracles' revelations.


RATING: NC17

Season of Solace                                                               ***New Scenes 2018***

A slayer's plot and a dark prophesy unite Cordelia & Angel.


The next apocalypse is on the horizon as the followers of a powerful demon god gather at the Hellmouth. The Scooby Gang must unravel the mysteries of an ancient prophecy, save those who would be sacrificed, fight an influx of demons and vampires, and find a way to stop a ritual that involves one of their own.


Although Cordelia Chase's entire world has recently turned topsy-turvy, she returns to help with research. Angel also rejoins the group despite Buffy's determination to keep him at a distance until she can sort out her feelings. Buffy decides to keep both Angel and Cordelia out of her way by assigning them patrol duty together. The formation of 'Team Chase' forges a bond of friendship between Cordelia and Angel that continues to evolve in ways no one expects.  


As if prophecy-related events weren't challenging enough, Drusilla takes a dangerous interest in Cordelia's relationship with Angel when she and Spike return to Sunnydale. Her cryptic predictions warn of the darkness threatening to consume them all.
