Anyhoo, someone decreed that it was Fluff Friday, and for once my story does NOT qualify. There are plenty of fluffy parts, but it's not really the overall deal. Still, here you go:
Word Count: 3400 / 2800 / 4000 (around 10,000, total)
Characters: Spike, Buffy, Joyce, Giles, with guest appearances by some other familiar faces
Summary: After escaping from the Initiative, Spike weighs his options and seeks help from the Slayer’s
Warning: Compresses some events in the Season Four timeline. Contains non-canon character death.
A/N: Spike POV. Fill-in-the-blank, though somewhat AU.
I have many thinky thoughts about this story, and about my crap writing process. I just might write my first-ever debrief to work it all out. I'm thinking that "debrief" isn't the right word. Would anybody be interested?
