Summary: Scene in Tough Love, in the training room after the Scooby meeting, in which Giles suggested they might sacrifice Dawn if the ritual had started.  Buffy had vehemently denied that as a possibility and part of her declaration included a comment where she said "I love you all."  Spike was in the room. 
In typical Spike fashion, he had to ask...
Buffy walked away and the next scene was her in the training room, angry, and punching her heavy bag.
But, instead of Giles coming in while Buffy is punching the bag, it's Spike.

Summary:
For readers who perhaps have never read any of my Business as Usual story, let mesay that it follows the Unlife of the vampire lady referred to by Spike in 'The Replacement', when, sarcastically, he tells the Scoobies that he has been having a cup of tea with the lady who runs a tea-stall in the local garbage dump. And I wondered...what if he wasn’t being sarcastic? Agnes Pringle immediately waved at me and insisted I tell her story. English spinster, splendid cook, very reluctant vampire (It Was Not Her Fault), close friend of Richard Wilkins III and Spike.
At the end of Season Six, with Spike off on his African adventure,  Agnes returned to England to avoid the Apocalypse, bringing with her several adopted vampire children she was trying to raise.......
