Disclaimer: I own nothing, Joss on the other hand… A few lines and ideas are borrowed from Season 5.
P.S.: This story is for divine_serenity.

P.S.S.: Much of this has been written in advance, therefore I will update every Monday and Thursday until it is completed. Nothing will make me update sooner…well, nothing other than an ungodly amount of comments. :)

Yep, I'm a little early...but I'm sure it's Thursday somewhere. :)

The comments have been wonderful, keep them coming. I had such a hard time not updating on Tuesday. But really, if you want more: comment!!

Again, I'm early because it's 10:26pm on Wednesday in my land, but oh well. :)

I've been reading all your comments/reviews. Thank you for taking some time to leave them, it means a lot. I've noticed that some believe that William's too hard on Buffy, and that might be true, but I believe that he's acting the way that he is because he is scared (that's why Buffy is acting the way that she is too). It's probably a given, but I just thought some of you might be wondering why they're both defensive at the moment. :)

Enjoy and review. I'll be back with more on Thursday.

A longer chapter, and a teeny weeny cliffhanger (I think so anyway).

Review please, I know everyone says it, but it does give me an extra push to write more and quicker.

Since this is a short chapter, I'll make you all an offer: if I get at least 25 comments on this chapter, you will get the next chapter tomorrow (it'll be my first time actually posting on the promised Thursday instead of the night before).

Yes, this is a shameless scam to get more comments. The decline is really making me sad people. It doesn't even have to be good reviews and you can review more than once if you want. I just want to know if you like it, you know?

Enjoy!

Sorry for the lack of update on Wednesday night/Thursday. The truth is, I’m officially out of my pre-written chapters. So, from this point on I’ll be updating at least once a week, probably on Sunday nights. Hopefully, this doesn’t disappoint you too much. I’ll be working as fast as I can to get out some good stuff for you. ;)

Here’s the next chapter, the moment you’ve all been waiting for (I hope). Also, due to some of the feedback that I’ve received, you might need a Kleenex by the end.

I'm sorry it's late! I have a tiny case of writer's block.

I'm sorry this is so late. I had writer's block, then I came down with the stomach flu and sadly writing was the last thing that I wanted to do.

I hope this is worth the wait!
