Welcome!

Thank you for coming to visit! After a few years down, a revised version of Nocturnal Light is coming back online. It is work in progress as all of the stories have to be re-added, but slowly and surely, all stories previously available on Nocturnal Light will once again be published here. Note that as some stories were very long, they were broken down into several posts. Use the tag for the story to find all associated posts!

Choices – Part 1

Post NFA. The battle is won, and now the survivors have to figure out how to move on. Spike saves a girl, Angel reconnects with Connor and Nina, and old friends come to town. They’ll all soon learn that every choice impacts the future.



Discovery

Set at the end of Chosen. Spoilers up to Ep 5:8 of “Angel”. Buffy and Co stop in L.A. before going on to start the new Council and find the new Slayers. One new Slayer in L.A. is April Simms, who now has a special mission from Buffy. Will April find something worth bringing Buffy back to Los Angeles?



The Interview

You Mean the World to Me
