Starts in the episode Becoming (part 2)
What if Drusilla "gifted" Buffy with Miss Edith before jumping into the Hell portal with Angelus?
Spike and Buffy still make their truce. Spike has to keep Giles from being killed, distract Angelus, and take Drusilla away from Sunnydale.
Things start off the same as they did in canon only instead of knocking Dru out she gets a message from her pixies and starts to dance around and ramble about how her path is going to be different. Spike understands only half of what she's saying and is about to knock her out but is suddenly distracted by the sound of a dropped sword. He turns to see that Angelus has Buffy on the ropes and is about to go intervene because he really didn't come this far only to see hell on Earth. His distraction proves to be a mistake because Dru calls his name and when he turns she thralls him into standing still though he can still see what's going on (I'm not sure if Spike can be thralled but I thought maybe with the strength of Sire's blood behind it he might be more susceptible especially because he was momentarily distracted and couldn't put up his defenses fast enough).
Spike watches on in horror as Dru lets Buffy keep fighting her Daddy. He fights the thrall but can't escape it. Buffy still slams a sword through her love only he's still Angelus and he starts getting sucked into the vortex. Meanwhile Spike has regained the ability to speak but not move and he's begging Drusilla to release him and come away with him. Angelus is also calling out to her commanding her to help him get free.
Drusilla doesn't listen to either of them and instead goes to Buffy who is exhausted, heartbroken and doesn't think that she will be able to defeat Dru. She does try but gets thralled and then Dru does something that no one expected. She kisses Buffy, gouging her with her fangs, bites her own tongue and mixes their blood in the Slayer's mouth then she utters an incantation that the pixies or Miss Edith told her to say. There's a flash of light, Buffy passes out. She then goes to Angelus who thinks she's going to help pull him loose but she instead pushes him in (much to Spike's horror) and goes with him.
Spike, no longer bound, looks for Dru but can't find her and knows she's in hell with her Daddy. He sees Buffy lying there unconscious and contemplates killing her but he wants her awake so he can make her suffer. He falls asleep waiting for her to wake.
When Buffy wakes she feels different and wonders what happened. She sees Spike but there's no sign of Angelus or Dru. (Maybe at this point she has a vision of Acathla sucking in Angelus and Drusilla. At this point Buffy could either be aware of Miss Edith's presence right away or you could have her learn of it when she tries to leave the mansion without Miss Edith's doll). Buffy, depressed, waits for Spike to wake up hoping that she can goad him into a fight and that he'll kill her.
When Spike wakes up he freaks out on Buffy saying she didn't uphold her side of the bargain. Buffy says it's his fault he didn't subdue Drusilla sooner. She tells him to bring it on, that they'll fight he'll kill her and then dust himself but Spike tells her that he's not going to kill her but he is going to follow her and torment her for eternity.
Buffy goes to leave the house and Miss Edith freaks out telling her not to leave her doll behind. Buffy goes to get it and Spike gets angry telling her not to touch Dru's stuff. Buffy tells him that she can't leave the doll, that something isn't letting her. Spike puts two and two together and realizes that Buffy is now Miss Edith's guardian. He knocks Buffy out and takes her off to L.A. (or somewhere not the Hellmouth, author's choice) and refuses to let her out of his sight because her being in possession of Miss Edith is a way to keep Dru close to him.
Where does the story go from here? Was Miss Edith part of the source of Drusilla's visions? Was she a calming influence on her or did Dru disgree with her more often than not (maybe that's why Dru was constantly punishing her for speaking out of turn). Will Miss Edith show Buffy what made Drusilla how she was which will in turn show Buffy Angelus' depravity? Will Miss Edith begin helping to interpret Buffy's slayer dreams? Will Miss Edith show Buffy what she knows of Spike and try to get the mismatched pair to see that they're good for each other? How will Buffy's friends and family react when Buffy comes back with Spike in tow? Are the visions debilitating or distracting enough that Spike has to constantly watch Buffy's back? How does this effect Spike who only wants to keep the little bit that's left of Dru close to him?
Would like to see:
-Buffy and Spike out of Sunnnydale for awhile as Buffy adjusts to having Miss Edith in her life and showing her visions which she utilizes.
-Lots of Dru's past through Miss Edith's eyes.
- Buffy and Spike should go back to Sunnydale at some point.
-Buffy and Spike not starting a relationship until after she turns eighteen (because let's face it they'll both probably deny their feelings for each other for as long as possible anyway although maybe with Miss Edith's influence Buffy falls for Spike before he does with her.)
-Angelus getting resouled at the very last second before Dru shoves him into Hell (Would prefer Buffy not know but Spike could notice)
-Buffy and Spike getting closer and bonding over visions and other things.
-Angelus coming back (what kind of reception he gets is up to the author but I'd think it might be a little chilly because of what he did to Dru).
Please, no rape.
That's it ya'll, have fun!
