I've put a generic Buffy/Spike for the characters, because I'm sure they will be there eventually, but I have no idea who else is going to show up, ask the Mods. Ethan is in the list but Marcie isn't (what?), so I didn't mention either.

Previously: Marcie’s plans met with some unexpected drawbacks when she couldn’t find any of her old tormentors, except for Buffy who was whole again, but possibly a cloned robot that sees the invisible. Better going for Ethan, who’d found them a perfect base of operation and had now both a plan and the magical means to make it happen.

4. Chapter 4 - Truth be told by relurker - Likes: 13 Comments: 7 Word Count: 3,309 Hit Count: 529 Published: July 29, 2021

Previously: Ethan and Marcie Ross escaped together from the Rehab Academy for Special Studies, and went to Sunnydale seeking revenge. While Ethan successfully cast a curse on Giles, Marcie was frustrated because all the people she used to hate aren’t there any more, except for Buffy, who wasn’t actually one of the bullies in High School. When Marcie was injured while following the Slayer on patrol, Buffy and Spike helped her.

5. Chapter 5 - Beware those meddling kids by relurker - Likes: 16 Comments: 8 Word Count: 5,240 Hit Count: 512 Published: August 07, 2021

Previously: Giles is still very affected by Ethan’s Cravings spell, Marcie is confused. Buffy’s house is flooded, she’s crushed by all of her problems, and she spilled the truth about having been in Heaven to everybody. Luckily Spike is there, to give support and help the Scoobiesstart researching ways to help Giles. Ethan and Marcie are then caught spying on them—not very efficiently—from an empty shop near the Magic Box.
