It’s almost a year and a half since Sunnydale fell into a crater. Now retired from slaying, Buffy’s been voluntold to go to Wesley Wyndham-Price’s memorial service, where she finds a few familiar enemies. Everything’s so surreal anyway, Buffy decides she might as well just give into it and see if lunch with Drusilla and Harmony might be one of the better things she does that year. It’s a pretty low bar, after all. The day keeps getting weirder, but the bar for the year might just be unsurpassable by the end of it.
The comics are ignored completely and both TV series as taken as cannon. This is a not a romantic reunion fic, although there are reunions aplenty, and parts of it could be described as romantic. Spike does not speak in this story, although others speak about him quite a bit.
All song and chapter titles are courtesy of X-Ray Spex, and all the characters and settings you've heard of before are courtesy of Mutant Enemy et al. Dylan Thomas' Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night is partially quoted. The story is entirely my own, although the original plot bunny was an EF challenge by knightowl. No copyright infringement is intended.
Behind Blue Eyes gave me a very early beta, for which I am grateful. I'm not sure the final product is recognisable from the one she read, so any remaining mistakes are entirely my own.

Post-Season 5, an alternate reality take on Season 6, but not so crazy-alternate that anyone's unrecognisable. Just lots of small tweaks that pack a punch - like the odd bit of honest communication amongst the Scoobies. Starts with Spike/Dawn friendship and builds from there.
Runner Up for Best Angst in round 30 of the SunnyD Awards

Season 6 Thanksgiving with Buffy and Dawn's aunts. Missing scenes between Wrecked and Gone, so canon with all that that entails.
This story has *vastly* more hits here than anywhere else I've posted it. Thank you so very, very much, Bloodshedverse, for loving it.

It's late season 2, and Spike discovers Buffy locked out of her house after patrol. Shenanigans ensue.
Assume Buffy and Spike made their truce a bit earlier than in canon - leaving them some time before Acathla - and that Joyce still doesn't know Buffy's the Slayer. Memories have been adapted to include Dawn.
