Summary: Season 2, but with a different pre-series history. Robin Wood moves to Sunnydale to back up Buffy in her on-going battles with Drusilla. But when Buffy's romance with Angel takes a dark and dangerous turn, Robin determines his assistance won't be enough, and calls in some back up of his own: the old family friend who wears his mother's coat.

Story Notes: Story diverges from canon history in 1935, but much of series canon remains intact until the primary action begins in chapter 2, shortly after Jenny Calendar's funeral.
Series Notes: First in a series that is currently planned to be 3 stories long, covering the end of season 2 through the end of season 3.
Challenge Notes: I released this plot bunny into the wild because I was unsure I'd ever get around to actually writing this story. But some plot bunnies insist on being domesticated. They move into your house and refuse to leave. Still, I hope others will answer the challenge, as there are far more angles that can be taken with it than just this one.
