Summary: Take the Scoobies, but make them communicate.
Challenge Prompt:
The Scooby gang was the heart of BtVS and, sadly, a heart that got damaged and all sorts of scarred by our canon writers. But still, the relationships between our core group - Buffy, Giles, Willow, Xander (and depending on the season, Oz, Cordelia, Anya, Tara) - are a huge part of what makes the show so amazing. It can be a useful dramatic tool to have any of the characters turn antagonistic, but what I'd love to see here is some major Scooby loving.
I don't care what the plot is, what season this is, or how long the fic is, so long as it addresses the Scooby Gang as they in some way work through life together. I'm not looking for fluff here, either, but a realistic exploration of people going through their different stages and challenges of life on the hellmouth.
Reqs:
- Exploration of Scooby friendship. Doesn't need to include everyone, but no Scoobies are allowed to become villains. Tension is fine, but the ultimate end should be growth and stronger (even if altered) relationships
- Balanced presentation of character flaws and virtues. Please no Saint Buffy or Saint Spike. Character flaws are beautiful things!
- Spuffy, of course. Bonus points if friendship growth leads to our favorite pair getting together (and a happier existence for Spike in the group)
- End leaves us with a strong, (at least relatively) happy Scooby group
