Spike died five years ago during the battle in L.A., and Dawn gives Buffy a book to read. S/B. Set five years post-“Not Fade Away” with no comic book influence. This is way AU but not human AU…you’ll see.
Sent on a mission to find yet another slayer, Buffy is stuck in Colorado, it’s Christmas, and it’s snowing. Buffy POV.
Buffy and Spike were settled into their life together and had their routine down with their seven-month-old son. He was sleeping through the night, and Buffy and Spike had a good balance of working, spending time as a family, and assisting the Louisiana Slayer team at the slippery New Orleans hellmouth. Then, Buffy gets tapped to help investigate a bunch of dead bodies with neck wounds in the Quarter, and Spike is left to watch their son on his own. He’s done it plenty of times before. What could possibly go wrong this time?
Buffy and Spike decide to start a family in a realistic way (as realistic as you can get in Buffyverse). Post-NFA, Buffy POV. This is a response to swifthorse’s challenge.
