Starting in the summer between seasons 4 and 5, Riley’s away and some interesting sparks are flying between Buffy and Spike. But when Riley returns, Buffy’s problems are only beginning.
A response to Helga Von Nutwimple’s Vamp-in-the-Box Challenge. Wolfram & Hart make a slight error, and bring Drusilla back instead of Darla at the end of Ats S1. Drusilla heads straight to Sunnydale and Spike, and in the process throws a monkey wrench into Buffy’s thinking. Oh, and Riley left after “Restless.”
Set after a different Primeval (season 4), Buffy needs Spike’s help. Warnings-character death and squick!
Post Season 4. The summer is over and school is starting soon, but Buffy can’t forget her summer.
