Summary: After a worldwide pandemic wipes out over 99% of the human population, the only way for those left to survive is to find others and make deals. Buffy, a potential slayer who's already watched people near and dear to her die, understands that the only person you can truly count on is yourself and has no desire to make connections with anyone else. Everything changes when she finds a little girl in the woods, makes a deal with a blonde devil, and discovers that there's more to the disease - and maybe the devil- than meets the eye.

Summary: Scene in Tough Love, in the training room after the Scooby meeting, in which Giles suggested they might sacrifice Dawn if the ritual had started.  Buffy had vehemently denied that as a possibility and part of her declaration included a comment where she said "I love you all."  Spike was in the room. 
In typical Spike fashion, he had to ask...
Buffy walked away and the next scene was her in the training room, angry, and punching her heavy bag.
But, instead of Giles coming in while Buffy is punching the bag, it's Spike.

She dreams of him. It’s the only place he’s still real, in her dreams. She dreams of him and every time she does she holds her breath, begging not to wake up, begging to stay with him, sleep there forever.

Summary:

Goes off-canon during The Harsh Light of Day. Sunnydale is devastated by the release of a prototype virus that was being developed by a branch of The Initiative. Now, half the population is 'infected', and the other half is living on borrowed time. A bite will turn you into one of them, and Buffy's got her mom and sister to think about. With the gem, Spike's immune and so it makes perfect sense to Buffy that he should help them get out of town. But this thing's already bigger than Sunnydale, and if Spike's their best chance of survival then it looks like he's along for the ride.
 

Introducing: A vampire who's been needed before, but never exactly wanted. And a girl struggling to understand the true nature of good and evil, whilst standing shoulder to shoulder with the Slayer of Slayers. (Inspired by Stephen King's The Stand, AMC's The Walking Dead and every zombie flick I've ever set eyes on).
 

Winner at the SunnyD Awards (Round 31) for Best Unfinished, Best Drama and Best Plot. Endless heartfelt thanks to everyone who voted!
