Purple Days by baurus aka bigbow
Status: In progress with 60 chapters and 600k words so far.


Prince Joffrey Baratheon dies to the Strangler on his wedding day. In his final moments, he falls into endless agony as his vision melts into purple waves.

He wakes up back in his apartment in the Red Keep, shortly before the Royal Family makes for Winterfell.

Certain that this can only be divine will, he lives his life again, making sure to punish those he considers responsible...

...and dies again. And again, he returns to the same point. Over and over and over.

Mired in despair at the neverending cycle of life and death, he rapidly tires of sitting and ordering others, each life luring him into worse and worse revelations. Frantic for answers, his mind ever-fraying, Joffrey rises to seek the answers to the Cycle, an endless journey that takes him from King's Landing to Winterfell, from Valyria to Yi-Ti, from Sothoryos to Asshai, life after life, seeking the truth of the mysteries buried beneath Planetos and the horror of the Long Night...

Will Joffrey sink into the madness of the Purple? Or will he emerge as something... changed?

Only time will tell... tvtropes

After completing the demon trials and winning his soul, the PTB award Spike the ability to walk in the sun again. Half mad from the guilt, he travels back to Sunnydale just in time. Taking a bullet for Buffy, he barely manages to save Tara the only way he can. By turning her.

Vamp!Tara fully embraces her white witch abilities while working to pull her sire and the scoobies together. And with a little luck, hopefully they can defeat the first evil.

Must haves:
  • Tara rises with a soul. How is up to the author.
  • Willow and Tara stay together and are very much in love.
  • Though nothing sexual grows between the pair, Tara keeps her humanity by helping Spike regain his.
  • And last but not least, a happy Spuffy ending.

Can have:
  • Cupid causing a bit of mischief, because who doesn't love a little Valentine's Day challenge?

Tutorial - How To Apply PSD Colorings In Photoshop

PSD colorings can be an amazing resource to change and/or blend the colors of a graphic...so much so that I've become addicted to using them. Though it's important to remember, not all colorings will work with every photo so experiment until you find what works best for you.

First I start by choosing a psd coloring. There are thousands of free psd's available to download on deviantart. For this tutorial I'm using one of my own HERE. Then I open the psd file in photoshop, along with the photo I wish to apply it to.




Next, I select the psd coloring folder then place my curser over the coloring preview , right click and hold down on the mouse or laptop pad and drag the coloring over to the top of my original photo. If the graphic I'm working with has layers, I place my coloring folder above them, otherwise the coloring won't be visible. I might play around with the coloring settings to enhance my graphic even more. When finished I save my work as a PNG file and also a psd copy for future adjustments..


Last but not least, remember to give credit when using someone else's resources.

Dear Emma, Story Prompt (BTVS)



Pairings: Buffy/Spike & Xander/Anya

Dear Emma,
   For a thousand years I wielded the powers of the wish. I brought ruin to the heads of unfaithful men. I brought forth destruction and chaos for the pleasure of the lower beings. I was feared and worshiped across the mortal globe and now I'm stuck at Sunnydale High! Mortal. Child. And I'm flunking math.”
-Anya


After the fall of Sunnydale, Buffy's tearful confession that she cared for Spike long before he was chipped shocks no one. Least of all, Xander, who is still reeling from loosing Anya. But then he receives a strange visit from D'Hoffryn, who tells him Anya's soul is stuck in limbo then gifts him a package that turns out to be her diary. Reading her innermost thoughts, the observations she made and how lonely she truly was leaves Xander inconsolable but determined to seek out the truth. Telling no one, he heads to LA in search of Wesley, only to find Spike instead, who weirdly becomes his closest confidant. Fearing rejection, Spike consistently refuses to contact Buffy, but vows to help him on his quest.

Unknown to both, D'Hoffryn has plans of his own and the one night their drunken regrets turn into a wish, Xander and Spike find themselves back in Sunnyhell the week Buffy starts college. Xander is happy to reconcile with Anya. if only he can convince Spike to stop avoiding Buffy long enough to unite them all against the Initiative setting up on campus.

Must haves:
  • Spike and Xander becoming best buds.
  • Both sent back in time and merging into their past selves with all future memories intact.
  • Snippets of Xander reading Anya's diary, which he was able to keep when sent back to Sunnydale.
  • Spike doesn't lose his soul.
  • D'Hoffryn might be evil and manipulative, but he simply wants his Anyanka alive and happy again because he loves her like a daughter.
  • A happy Spuffy ending.

This prompt was originally submitted to Elysian Fields "2016 Artistic Anniversary Challenge" but was never written, so if you're itching to pen a fluffy post-apocalyptic zombie au, here's your sign.
