Summary: Actually two stories - one short one that was inspired by a prompt or something at the BSV many, many years ago, and a much longer sequel that begins right after the end of the first one. The first story begins in the summer before season 5 and they go on into the season, but totally noncanon after the summer's possible fill-in-the-blanks. Which is probably pretty non-canon too, actually. :)

Summary: It was unfair. She’d done her duty and died. Twice. Why the Powers hated her so much? Because they were assholes, that’s why.
In addition to that she’d done something stupid (ok, more than one thing) and her only support had enough of her cold treatment.
Could her life get any suckier than that? Of course, it can. Didn’t she just say the Powers hated her?
