Serenity takes on two passengers who have a lot of secrets. Nothing new there. But these particular passengers are hunting an old enemy and will accidentally endanger the entire crew. Actually, now that I think of it, nothing new there, either.
Why You Should Read This:
Spike has been very seriously injured and has not yet completely healed, leaving him with odd, child-like behaviors that are reminiscent of River. He also seems to understand her entirely too well. Still, Angel and Spike have managed to survive the removal of humanity from Earth-that-was and now they manage to get along with the crew, though “get along” is a bit of a euphemism in one case. When they get where they are going, they find Dru, or rather, she finds them. Then it gets serious.
Title: Damaged Souls Series
Fandom: Crossover: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Torchwood, Dr. Who

Ianto, in a bid to maintain his sanity, leaves Torchwood after Jack disappears and takes the first plane going anywhere–Los Angeles as it happens. Shortly afterward he finds himself in Sunnydale, where he fights vampires and learns that he is a witch. When Jack returns, Ianto refuses to come back to Cardiff.
Then he ends up back there anyway, bringing Xander, Willow and his lover, Spike. That is when the serious trouble starts.
Why You Should Read This:
This is two short little stories and a nice long adventure, a great amalgamation of Torchwood and BtVS. Troubles from both ‘verses cause death and destruction and the bunch of them have to learn to work together, alien tech, magic, and all.
Title: Through the Eyes of A Child
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Genre: Kid Fic, Hurt/Comfort, De-Aging
Warnings: Mentions of past child child abuse.
Word Count: Approximately 23,000
Summary: Xander is affected by a demon and regresses to his abused six year old child-self.
Why you should read this:
Kid fic only… not. Xander is attacked by a strange demon resulting in his mental regression to six years of age. Spike volunteers to take care of him, though only Giles is aware that Xander and Spike are Mates in the beginning. Childlike Xander slowly reveals his past abuse from his parents to his new caretakers who are appalled on his behalf and seek to give him a happy childhood while still searching for a cure for his regression.
Cath deals with the though processes of an abused child quite well. Especially how the thought that they were somehow responsible for their abuse and how those thought processes can follow the abused into adulthood. Despite this there are moments of genuine humor, especially in how Angel reacts to Xander during his regression.
