Story Notes: This one-shot reimagines the interaction between Drusilla, Spike, and Buffy in Spike’s crypt during Crush in Season 5 (S5:E14). Talking with Drusilla gives Buffy a new perspective, leading her to a different decision regarding Spike and his place in her life. 
 
This is tagged as an Episode Rewrite, although it’s more like a Scene Rewrite. The story’s banner is by me. The story is unbetaed so errors, typos, and such are all mine. It borrows scenes and dialogue from Crush, with the disclaimer below.
