Summary:

In “The Gift”, Dawn sacrifices herself to save the world and is thus erased from existence.

Only Buffy and the Scoobies are able to remember Dawn.

Buffy gives up slaying and falls into a deep depression. She sells her house and moves into a small apartment. Her friends try to snap her out of it - Xander trying to set her up with Richard, Willow trying the Tabula Rasa spell - but they're unsuccessful.

Buffy sleeps with Spike 147 days after Dawn’s death. Two months later she discovers that she's pregnant - and research reveals that she's pregnant with Dawn. How this happened is up to the author. 

Spike can move in with Buffy after the revelation. Another revelation could be that Dawn was originally made from Spike, too.

If you wanna get dark, then the Scoobies could try to abort the baby for Buffy’s “own good”, believing it to be demon spawn. But the story shouldn't have irredeemable Scoobies.

There should also be no First Evil and no Nerd Trio. 



Summary: Season 6 AU. Dawn dies at the end of The Gift. She's erased from this world, yet traces of her linger. B/S
