Happy July, everyone! Today’s the free posting day and as promised, the conclusion of “Full Circle” is posted. As always, I’m ever grateful to our fabulous mod enigmaticblues for her continued patience and gracious maintenance of the community. I don’t think I would have ever finished this without the forced deadlines. Thank you! Thank you!
Title: Full Circle
Final Wordcount: 49,980
Setting: Early Season 3 and then it goes wildly AU after that
Author’s Note: This is most definitely an off cannon piece. I’m going to try to keep the characterization in cannon, but in the end I have to go where Buffy and Spike take me. Many thanks to ! I couldn’t do this without you! I’ve re-posted everything at – some has been tweaked – but mostly so you don’t have to go fishing for the story. Thanks to for some typo catches! And a huge thank you to for the gorgeous banner. :D
Disclaimers: Spike, Buffy and the Buffyverse are not my creations. They are the glorious brain children of Joss Whedon. Any liberties I take with the characters and the ‘verse are ‘cause he’s indulgent towards his fans. Some of the diner dialogue is directly from the original episode, “Anne.” The general concept of Drusilla leaving Spike for a chaos demon isn’t mine either. That’s from “Fool for Love,” Season 5. I didn’t write or create either! Please don’t say I did.
WARNING: CHARACTER DEATH, Extreme Angst
Also, this is unbeta’d. If you catch some glaring errors (typos, grammatical errors, things like that), please PM me so I can fix them. Thanks!
