Beta note - While the main thrust of this ficlet isn't Spuffy, Spike and Buffy ARE mentioned, they ARE together, and it ties in directly with Revelations. It's an important part of the story that needs to be told, so I am posting it here for Nia. If there are any objections, please shout at me, not Nia.


Blame all this on Slinkypsychokit, because without her whining, er asking me for this repeatedly, this story might not have ever been told. So without further rambling, er ado, here is Kirsten’s story (or at least as much as I can give you without being too spoilery). Which reminds me. . . . There are some spoilers for one possible ending of Revelations in here, so if you don’t want to know, steer clear of it. Otherwise, enjoy. Disclaimers are in full force and effect. I own nothing.

[A/N: Aside from a few select people, I have no idea who else might be reading this. . . . but for those of you that thought I was going to or had abandoned this little story, I can only say – "Nahuh, not happening." I promised myself, when I started writing fanfiction, that I wouldn’t start to post something unless I planned on finishing it. So in order to keep that promise, here it is. . . and hopefully, I’ll finish it sometime soon. Spoilers for Revelations and the as-yet untitled third installment in the Originsverse. Title is from. . . an old Steve Miller tune. My thanks to Tam, who’s beta service is invaluable. Disclaimers prove I own nothing, except for a few minor characters and the plot, everything else belongs to someone far richer than I am.]

Thanks to everyone who's been kind enough to leave a review, and thanks to Spikeslovebite and Addie Logan, who both make me a better writer.

[A/N: I believe, this story has come to an end, though the Originsverse is far from finished, though I doubt I’ll get to Book Seven, like some people hope. It is however, the end of Kirsten’s tale. This started out as . . . well, Slinkypsychokit asked me how Kirsten fit in, and what her story is, in fact she all but begged me to tell it while we were at WriterCon a year ago. I resisted, until both Kirsten and Slinky couldn’t be resisted. So this is all their fault. I hope I’ve managed to entertain, leave only a few, minor dangling threads and answer her questions about Kirsten. It’s been a fun ride. Thanks to both Spikeslovebite and Addie Logan, who put up with my fits and starts and always give me a reason to keep going. Thanks also to the girls at WriterCon – and the few who didn’t make it. Next time, I swear. Disclaimers in full force and effect. All belongs to Joss but the plot and original characters.]
