Born 1954 but like old cheese and wine I like to think I've improved with age LOL. Love the Buffyverse and adore Spike. Luckily my husband is also a fan (even of fic) and fully supportive of my vices. Other than that I'm rather dull. Co-own a commercial cleaning company (after 22 years in mainframe computing), dream of a lottery win and retirement LOL. Love to write and love to read. No living children but lots of dogs...hence the "pack".


 


My Beta, and dearest sister of the heart, is Mary Tanner (Scarlett2U).  Her talent,knowledge, generous heart, quick mind and love of Spuffy have been invaluable to me.  Her encouragement and skills are something I would wish for any writer.  She is also a skillful comma surgeon!

Late in the night, after everyone has fallen asleep, she makes her way down to the basement to talk to Spike because she can’t keep the anger and hurt she is feeling to herself. While talking with the vampire, she comes to another realization: that Spike is the only one she can vent to and she can count on no matter what.”

This story assumes much more was going on in the back rooms of W & H, things that lead to a group rescue effort that will involve almost all the BtVS and AtS main characters in one epic battle against evil.

Summary: There's a glitch using those Ghorah eggs as a surprising result develops from Dawns attempt to bring back her mother. Those developments both thrill and horrify Spike as the scoobies and Buffy discover the man behind the mask. Can a mothers love heal and bind or should the past be left in the grave? Setting: Season 5 mid episode "Forever" going AU from there. Liberal changes made to the ritual Dawn uses for the resurrection spell. A/N and disclaimer: All characters and concept belong to Joss Whedon and ME, Fox, WB, UPN and other corporations affiliated with same. Thanks to Mr. Whedon's generous permission, I am using his creations in my original plot for no financial gain on my part. Bits of dialogue from transcripts of "Forever" written by Marti Noxon. The true "PTB" have given William the surname of Pratt. For the purposes of this story I researched my little heart out on that surname and chose a prominent branch of Pratt's (adding my own fictional portion). Thus I offer my apologies to those actual family members who might not appreciate my little addition. Spike's immediate family (father and paternal grandmother in particular) are purely the construct of my imagination.
