Story Notes: A rather large chunk of familiar dialogue is from the episode As You Were, written by Douglas Petrie and also leans heavily on the original transcript. If you recognize it from the show, it’s not mine – I’ve just bent it to my will.
 
Warning! Please note that if you’re a fan of Riley Finn, this fic might not be your thing.

Please note that I tried matching Daniel’s conception and birth dates up with aired Buffy episodes, but I ended up nearly tearing my hair out. Not being a geneticist, I’m just gonna say the scientists diddled with Spike’s jizz, and Buffy’s DNA and a stripped ovum from some other poor, unsuspecting human, and voila! Daniel is now two years old! Please just go with this.
