Summary:  A sequel to Even Demons Need Friends. If you haven’t read that short s4 fic, all you really need to know is that this is a non-canon Season 5 in which Glory is there searching for her Key, Joyce is sick, Spike is unchipped and living in another city. At the end of the previous story, he’d asked Buffy to call him if she needed help.
They don’t have a relationship yet; they weren’t even much more than canon Season Four semi-enemies, with an unrecognized and unacknowledged sexual attraction, when Ethan’s spell to turn Giles into a Fyral demon wrought some important changes in a very short period of time. But not changes sufficient to make it likely that a slayer, with a human boyfriend and a firm belief in what’s right and acceptable, and an old vampire, who has just regained his ability to hunt and feed, are likely to see any kind of a future for them. In spite of some surprising revelations about how they may feel about each other.
Definitely an AU Season Five. Some things will be familiar, some things obviously will not, so don’t go looking for an identical timeline or identical events.

Summary:  

Summary/Challenge: A Season 5 Out of My Mind Rewrite. “You do me right and nothing bad will happen to you.” What if Spike didn't say that to the doctor trying to take out his chip, but to Buffy? How does it happen? How smutty can things get? That is completely up to you.

The only condition that is a must-have is that Spike says that particular line to Buffy and Buffy says back (however you want) “Is that a promise, Spike?”

Have fun with this one!

P.S. Bonus points if you get rid of Harmony and Riley in the process.

Special Note: This is based on a challenge from Sunnydalesis! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration, this has been one of my most fun forays into writing for this fandom yet and I owe it all to you. :)
