Story Notes: I love drabbling. It is what got me into writing, so this challenge was a perfect fit. But I need prompts to drabble.

Update: I'm finished with the prompt list from Grief Counseling but love this little drabbleverse too much to leave it behind. If you agree and want more, feel free to make prompt and/or character suggestions in the comments or by PM. I'll try my best to incorporate them.

I hope you enjoy my little glimpses into life in Sunnydale.

High time to say many thanks to all the suggestions for characters. This was one of the many I wouldn't have come up on my own. I hope henchman #1 is not sad, but he is usually #1 so time to let his partner be in the spotlight.

I was neglecting these a bit. Very sorry about that.

The prompt is from Magnus, the setting is inspired by a discussion on the SAD discord. Shoutout to Liv, Sari and Kensi for inspiration and background information.

34. The bodyless rider by Julikobold - Likes: 5 Comments: 5 Word Count: 100 Hit Count: 108 Published: July 02, 2023

Prompt: Fear of the unknown
Character: Baker (who starts work very early)

The prompt also was provided by Magnus and the character idea IIRC came from Vero.
With the early suggestions I only copied out the ideas and did not note down who they were from. I regret that now. So if this was not from Vero, I'm sorry, but she made some I used, so an appreciation is appropriate.

The inspiration about the setting is from a very old non-Spuffy fic, where a character is willfully not looking into the rearview mirror when Spike follows on bike. My brain automatically went: If they would look, what would they see? Here you have my interpretation.

And I just realized this chapter note is already longer than the drabble itself.
