Summary: Ethan Rayne summons a force of chaos that leaves Sunnydale’s citizens, human and demon, reeling from the negative backlash. At first, no one realizes the events are different from regular Hellmouth activity. But what’s with all the snow globes? It’s almost Halloween, not Christmas…
AU S5. No Glory/Key. Spike does not kidnap the Initiative doctor and he doesn't have a sudden realization that he loves Buffy. Spike socializes with the Scoobies for lack of better options. Without his insistent, unwanted advances muddying the waters, Spike is just some jerky guy they know and hang out with sometimes. Because of this dynamic, Buffy and the others accept him much more easily. 
Woo! Check out that awesome banner by the incredibly talented Sunalso!

Summary: William Pratt has a heart full of love and an imagination beyond what his peers can conceive. An outcast in a rigid world, William's life drastically changes one fateful night in the dark streets of London when a golden girl rescues him from certain death at the fangs of a storybook monster. 
The world richens and unfolds. Nothing is as it seems. Layers upon layers, secrets upon secrets. Monsters are real, and so are heroes. 
William is astounded to learn that mankind's last defense against all too literal demonic forces comes in the form of a petite young woman with ancient eyes and a youthful spirit. 
William once thought himself a poet, a romantic, a forward-thinking man. Now, William will be reforged in blood, love, and adventure--truly giving him something to write about.  
Beautiful banner by the lovely solstice. Thank you!
