Summary: A sequel to "Necessary Evils," which is a sequel to “A Raising In the Sun.” Previously: Willow brought Buffy back to life using Dawn's blood and William's soul, creating an imbalance which allowed the First Evil to use Willow to take over the world. Spike and Buffy narrowly defeated the First, resulting in the de-Keying of Dawn, the permanent closure of the Hellmouth, and Willow's death and resurrection as a souled vampire. As always, thanks to Jane Davitt and the Redemptionista Writers Group, betas extraordinaire.

Summary: More or less a sequel to "A Raising In the Sun."   However, all you need to know is that Willow brought Buffy back to life using Dawn's blood and William's soul, and Buffy does not remember heaven. n.b. I started writing this in September 2001, when "Amends" was the only canonical source of information on the First Evil, and finished it in May of 2003. Naturally I got Jossed a number of times in the course of writing. Some of these inconsistencies I revised to accord with the show's canon before completing the story. Others I decided to leave as is, specifically the First Evil's appearances as living people, and the fact that some of the Harbingers in this story are cabable of speech.

Thanks to Aurelio Zen for lettin' me play with her Zagros demon, and many, many thanks to all the folks at the Redemptionista Writers Group for beta reading.
