Five Brilliant SB Fag Ends Ficlets by Brutti_Ma_Buoni  
Honestly, I could have chosen any of the ficlets brutti_ma_buoni posted on sb_fag_ends in 2013, because they're all brilliant, but here are five of my absolute favourites.

Since they're all written for prompts, make sure you read the author's notes as well as the ficlets. Needless to say, Fag Ends being a Spuffy short fics comm, all of them are Spuffy in some way.

Well...I sing, PG.
An hilarious AU, in which the Fanged Four are a vampire rock band seriously in need of a drummer.

Qant doi partir de vostre amor (mais l'amor ne partira nient), R. Set in early season 5 BtVS, we don't see many fics written in the first person singular. This is one, in which Evil!Chipped!Spike gets some payback on the Slayer for making him fall in love with her (evil, remember?).

Second Thought, set after The Gift, PG. Angsty. Spike helped try to bring back Joyce. What will he do now Buffy is the one that has died?

Plus ca Change, plus c'est la meme chose, PG, post series. Oz attends a school reunion with a difference.

Smashed Again, Gone Again, season 6, PG. What if Buffy really did come back wrong?

I think I may have to make a second post of these. The ones I've left out are way too good not to share.

I still have a couple more lists. I hope other people do too.

She did some seriously great work this year!

Yes, she did. In fact, this list doesn't include all my favourites just from her Fag Ends fics.

I really do forget my own stuff, you know. Thanks for going digging!

several of these were my favorite stories of the year esp Smashed Again and Plus ca Change, but I missed Well I Sing back in January. Now that I've read it I can't stop giggling, so thank you!

Excellent choices!

To be honest, any I chose would have been as good.
