Summary:

Part One of the Something Wicked series.  (S4, between Something Blue and Hush)

The Hellions have visited Sunnydale before.  Here and there, in twos and threes, looking for a good time.  Any hellmouth is a good time, after all.  Usually they don’t stay long, since the new Slayer started to get a reputation for making good times go bad.  No one wants to play when there’s a sheriff in town.  But then word gets around that a vamp with a reputation of his own has joined the Slayer’s camp.  That pisses off more than a few boys in the demon world; especially demons with a score to settle and a serious dislike of vamps in general, that one in particular.

What’s interesting is… Once the score gets settled, the sheriff gets distracted dealing with the fallout.  And all of a sudden, the town’s wide open. 

Or is it?

Let’s have a look at the butcher’s bill.

Body? Whole and accounted for. Regrettably.
Mind? Blown. Lost. Take your pick.
Emotional self? M.I.A.
 
Buffy is alive, sure. But her mind is pretty much trapped in limbo. The only thing she feels is a dread so stifling she is suffocating from it.
 
Still, who better to help her navigate this than someone who considers breathing optional, at best?

He left something on the Hellmouth that he desperately needs back. It's a matter of life and death ... or unlife and dust. What he thought would be a quick retrieval mission gets more complicated as he pulls into a town of adult teenagers, all 'drunk' on cursed Band Candy.

Summary: Yeah, Spike had joked that he’d send Buffy postcards, and he had left that one on her door before he screeched out of town, again, with Dru, again. But would the Slayer of Slayers really send the Slayer of Vampires postcards? And would she even read them, if he did?
 
Spike and Buffy have gone their separate ways – Spike with Dru towards Brazil, Buffy keeping the Hellmouth contained in Sunnydale – but they can’t quite get the other one out of their systems. Does distance make the heart grow fonder? Are they still mortal enemies? Or mortal allies? Friends? Freinemies? Penpals? Or just phantoms that won’t stop haunting their thoughts and dreams, no matter how hard they try to forget?
 
Teetering on the razor’s edge between friends and enemies, which way will they fall?

The universe had a few things go wrong in it.
So an order was put in for a second go, by the Powers.
When a Slayer took down her first Master, in LA,
when Whistler was sent in to point a vampire with a soul
at a girl who had no clue what he was up to,
things slid a little sideways, onto a slightly different track.

What is 'normal', really?
Who is prophesied?
And what happens if you give the ingredients a stir
before you send your dish back to the kitchen and ask for a new version of the same meal?

Summary: Spike, struggling with his soul and his love for Buffy, is offered redemption from a very surprising source. However, when signs of an uprising evil begin to appear, he must face his fear and his guilt and return to the place it all began for him - Sunnydale.
