Needlework by Holly

Reviews (4)Rating: NC-17

Summary: Buffy awakens to a new world where the rules as she knows them don't apply and nothing is as it was. Without her friends, without her calling, there is only one person who can save her from self-destruction.

Author's Notes: This is an answer to one of the challenges at BSV , and I'll post the guidelines once the story is complete. A few things: you will notice the very vague similarity to Schez's Dark Gift, but that is due to the guidelines of the challenge. I contacted Schez after I decided to take on the challenge to make sure she was okay with this, and she has been amazingly accommodating, and for that, I'm more than grateful. Second, yes, surprise surprise, Holly is doing another Vamp!Buffy fic. What can I say, I just like 'em. However, in this story, Buffy's vampirism is the basis of the entire plot and not a consequence of the plot, and, if I write it well, should explore things I didn't touch in either Sang et Ivoire or Harbingers of Beatrice.

I've also stolen the rule for sired slayers from Harbingers of Beatrice , mainly because it seems, to me, like the most feasible reason to keep slayers ensouled. I feel bad, but I talked to the author, and she was cool with it (heh).

Thanks to Megan , Kimmie , Mari , and Yani for betaing. You all rock.
