Spike is the Fan-Fiction Superstar of the year according to the UK newspaper, the Sunday Times (reg. required).
"Amateur stories about established characters from fiction continue to be the web’s most under-reported phenomenon. Fan fictioneers delight in creating unlikely relationships, so when the undead but sexually charged Spike joined Buffy the Vampire Slayer as her evil vampire nemesis, fan authors immediately elevated him to her potential partner.
Sites such as www.buffysearch.com/Fan_Fiction_Sites/Spike_Fanfiction link to thousands of stories coupling the pair. Spike is our star of the year, because this story line has now surfaced in the real television show, an indicator of how fans increasingly influence programme-makers."
