My second offering is a WIP, since inspiration struck rather late. More to follow on open posting day, or on my journal.
Title: Fire in the Soul (1/?)
Rating: PG13, this chapter
Word count: 4400
Warnings: A bit Dru-ish
A/N: NOT comics or S8 compliant, but might’ve been inspired by discussion surrounding a panel in one of the recent IDW Spike comics. No comics knowledge required. Beta’d by snickfic, who has seen every word and can be held completely liable for any mistakes. (Kidding! She was awesome, but then I messed around with it some more. Tsk.) Some photos contained herein are copyrighted as noted.
Summary: A few years after Sunnydale’s spectacular demise, Buffy and her crew are getting on with their lives in San Francisco. A not entirely unwelcome blast from her past blows into town, but he’s brought more than the generally allowable amount of baggage with him.
