Post-Season 5, an alternate reality take on Season 6, but not so crazy-alternate that anyone's unrecognisable. Starts with strong Spike and Dawn friendship, and builds from there. Just lots of small tweaks that pack a punch - like the odd bit of honest communication amongst the Scoobies.
Be warned, Buffy is dead until Chapter 5, and the rating is mostly intended for later in the story.
This story is still being updated: expect new chapters every month-ish.
Runner Up for Best Angst in round 30 of the SunnyD Awards.
