Summary: S7: Set before the Slayer power is redistributed. The Potentials are still in training. Kennedy, Molly, Rona, Vi, and Andrew are flung back in time to S2. Unaware that they have time travelled, they feel fortunate to run into the one ally Buffy trusts above all others: Spike. Whatever freaky thing just happened to them, good old mentor Spike will take care of them, right?
S2: Spike finds Drusilla some yummy take-home dinner.

A story for all the times in S7 when Spike and Buffy exchanged knowing looks over the Potentials’ heads as if to say, If only you knew how things were in the beginning.

Story Notes: Hello there, friends. It has been an inexcusably long time since I've been active and writing. All I can say is that RL hasn't been a fun time. So, for funsies, I'm writing silly fic! I want to note that I have not abandoned my WIPs! And secondly, that I have already written ahead quite a bit of this story. So make of that what you will. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
