Hello and welcome to my posting day! I’d like to thank the mods for keeping this fine community going, and my fellow fans for keeping your Spuffy faith strong this many years! How ’bout this season of the comics, huh? ;)

All About the Mission, Chapter 1

This entry is part 1 of 3 of the story All About the Mission

So, my plan was to keep working on this story and hope to have enough to begin posting on one of the free for all days at the end of the month, but I think I’ll put the first chapter up here today, and add the rest during the last free-for-all days.

It’s a sequel to/part of the verse I Would Still Have Loved You in which Buffy and Spike have been sent back (separately) to change season 5 so that Buffy doesn’t have to jump, or, if she does, that Willow does not bring her back. Her resurrection having caused the First Evil to rise and inflict much destruction on the world. They more or less willingly accept their mission, the situation having been sweetened by finding each other much earlier than expected.

This story begins as they near the end of summer and prepare for the arrival of both Dawn and Glory.
