Raising the Stakes
Author: Uisge Beatha
Rating: PG-13 to NC-17
Timeline: Set during Something Blue – this story begins near mid-episode and immediately goes horribly off canon, not to mention dreadfully pear-shaped. Only thing you really need to know is that Spike has gone with Buffy to the magic shop, rather than staying behind to tend to Giles.
Synopsis: It could have been worse. That’s what my grandmother always used to say to me when I’d come whining to her about some mishap. So, I thought, you know, the fall-out from Willow’s spell … it could have been worse. A. Lot. Worse.
