Happy 10th Anniversary, Buffy fandom!

As of today, it's been 10 years exactly since "Chosen," the BtVS series finale aired, and fandom is still going strong! So, to celebrate 10 years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended, let's have a celebratory comment!ficathon! Absolutely everyone is welcome to play, whether they've only seen three or four episodes of BtVS or if they've seen every episode of BtVS three or four times each.

The general gist of this is the same as any other comment!ficathon, in that people leave prompts in the form of comments, which are open for anybody else to fill with a ficlet posted in a comment. Everything should be realated to the Buffyverse (including characters from Angel), but other than that, any prompts or fills are more than welcome!

This ficathon starts May 20, 2013, the tenth anniversary of BtVS's finale, but it will continue on indefinitely, as long as there is continued interest. So, don't be afraid to keep leaving and filling prompts come May 21st.

Rules

1. One comment per post. We already know what fandom you're prompting for, but please format your prompts with a character/pairings, prompt format. You can leave as many prompts as you want (the more the better), and fill as many as you want.

2. Crossovers and AUs are allowed and welcome, so long as BtVS is one of the crossover fandoms and that at least one BtVS character remains central to the prompt. If you're prompting a crossover, please format your prompt: Buffy the Vampire Slayer/other fandom, characters/pairings, prompt.

3. Bonus points to people who pimp the comment!ficathon, so we can get as many Buffy fans to come and play. There are banners in this comment thread, but if you feel moved to make your own, please do and post them to that thread, because the current banners were made by me and are mediocre at best.

4. Please post a link to all filled prompts here, in this comment thread. Make sure to give your fills a header, including title (if you have one), fandoms if you write a crossover fill, characters, pairings, rating, and warnings. For warnings, warn as you feel appropriate, but please be sure to warn for character death, explicit sexual content, extreme violence, underage sex, and rape/noncon/dubcon.

5. Have fun! This is a comment!ficathon to celebrate 10 years of fandom post-Buffy. Leave and fill as many prompts as you like, but make sure you do it respectfully. Feedback is actively encouraged, but no flaming! So have fun, Buffy fandom, and celebrate how long we've survived!

Summers Blood (Joyce, Giles, Dawn, PG)
“Joyce,” Rupert announced his presence quietly, slipping away from Buffy’s side to join Joyce against the wall. “May I speak with you for a moment?”

“Of course,” Joyce smiled graciously, leading the taller man from her living room into her kitchen. In truth, she didn’t want to talk to him, not now when his voice sounded funereal and his eyes were dark and heavy like rainclouds, but Joyce didn’t have the luxury of refusing him. In this world she still barely understood, the one which was Buffy’s far more than it would ever be hers, there wasn’t time to be afraid and it wasn’t safe to be uninformed.

“It’s about Dawn,” Rupert began with a sigh. “Joyce, there are some things you need to be made aware of.”

“I already know that she’s a key; Buffy explained all of that. Is there anything else?” she asked politely.

“It’s precisely that, Joyce. Dawn is the Key and I’m not entirely confident that you fully comprehend what that entails.”

“I think I understand just fine,” Joyce responded cooly, the barest hint of warning in her words. “Dawn has power she never asked for, just like Buffy. Both of my daughters are…different from other girls, but that doesn’t mean they deserve to be treated differently.”

“Joyce,” Giles sighed, rubbing his temples slowly. “Please understand me when I say this. I care about Dawn, truly. But all the same, she is not what we believed she was. She is the Key, not…”

“Don’t!” Joyce snapped, her glare as fierce as her daughter’s. Joyce may not have been a slayer but she was still a fighter and she would fight for Dawn until she bled. All her memories of Dawn may have been lies, blinking away like fireflies if she looked too closely at them for too long, but they were still hers. Dawn was her daughter, no matter how she’d come to be, and that was the only thing that really mattered. “Never tell me that she’s not my daughter!”

“Joyce, please,” Giles pled, stress visible in his features.

“You’re a very intelligent man, Rupert, but you and your books can only know so much. Dawn is mine, just as much as Buffy is, and I would very much appreciate it if you could stop trying to tell me otherwise. You may know everything about the Key and about your magic and your monsters, but I know other things. I know what it means to be a mother and what it means to have a child, just as much as I know that Dawn is mine.

“Please don’t suggest otherwise to me again.”

Without another word, Joyce turned from the taller man, holding her spine straight like a wall, shoulders tall as a hill. He had other things to say, but Joyce didn’t want to hear any of them. Maybe it was better to know and maybe ignorance was selfish, but the only things Giles had to tell her were things she didn’t need to know. Silently, Joyce pulled her youngest daughter into an embrace from behind, one hand wrapping around Dawn’s thin shoulders as she stroked back her long sepia hair. Dawn was warm like any other human being, Summers blood running through her veins and pumping through her heart; built from flesh and bones, solid and real.

“Mom?” Dawn asked, trying to mask the trace of fear that had lingered since Joyce had come home from the hospital. “Is everything okay?”

“Of course, Dawn,” Joyce smiled, pressing a kiss to the crown of her daughter’s head. “Everything is just fine.”

Keeping Each Other
Willow offered her a protection spell, once. It was actually pretty much guaranteed. No weapon forged (Faith didn't get the reference, it was hard to believe sometimes that she wasn't there for all of it, some things only Sunnydale natives get) could pierce it. Really intricate work, didn't ever use energy unless it had to and it took nothing to recharge but a few hours on a treadmill every couple of months (every few hours if things got apocalyptic, but that was less often).

"Thanks, Red, I'm sure it's great. But maybe you should just send one to B in the, uh, what do you witches use? If it goes through the sky is it called air mail?"

Willow didn't press the issue. She knew why Faith turned it down, for the same reason Willow never gave one to herself. There had to be some chance they could be killed in battle, in case -- in case. Fear of death keeps Faith grounded, prevents her from launching in and making it all about the fight and the carnage, now that she has something to live for, keeps accidents from happening when the consequences can get written on her body.

But Willow also saw Faith hiding the battle scars when she came home and she knew why. Willow was good about it, really. As good as good can be. She tried to ignore that she could feel Faith's fists pounding on the walls from across town, even when she was training her own set of slayers lessons about control; she let it all go, tell herself it was a part of the job, closed her eyes and counted to ten rather than let her students see her eyes blacken.

"Every night you go out there, you might die," Willow told the young ones, over and over again. "And someone you love might die. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is that you will die and people you care about will die, and outside birds will be chirping and flowers growing and people falling in love, not even bothering to notice. The world will still be a wonderful place, it just won't be yours anymore."

But as much as she said it, they really didn't know. Willow was pretty sure Faith could handle it out there. But Willow knew Faith wasn't so sure. And she hated herself for it and cursed herself for it...but she also was glad Faith wasn't sure. If it were just her love or Faith's love for her or love for life, Faith would probably have picked a losing fight by now. The thing that was keeping Faith alive was knowing that for all the years they've been together and all the years Willow has trained without an incident and for all her attempts at zen, it was still too dangerous for the world for the girlfriend of its most powerful sorceress to die.

Thou Hast Committed Fornication (Spike/Giles)
[Well, this is... odd...]

It was a long time ago, in a city far away, and nobody should be held responsible for their former selves, should they? Not when Giles is divided by quite so many years from that person who once wore tweed, and read books, and occasionally screwed a vampire when he could rustle up the funds to pay for Spike's cigarette habit.

And yet, there's a powerful waft of nostalgia flowing through Giles now, ancient and incapable though he may have become. Spike on his knees before him, eyes glinting yellow in the reminder that he could still inflict damage, could hurt even though it would hurt him. Giles had been ripe with the sleaze and the thrill of secrecy, power and forbidden sex, feeling young again. Very much not the retired Librarian, in fact.

But that was long ago, and in another country. And besides, the vampire is dead.

Which is quite the most absurd piece of self-pitying melodrama Giles has thought in a while, not least because the (un)deadness of Spike was – at the time – one of the more powerful aphrodisiac elements in the whole arrangement. Along with the silent resentment, the sleaze, and the fact that Spike could fuck like a demon. Quite why it has come back to him today, he isn't sure.

Until he realises the smell of smoke isn't an hallucination, and the sound of a motorbike is only now fading from the shocked echoes of this quiet, civilised place. And a man – who is now a man, and isn't so very young himself if one is counting – is remarkably close to Giles already.

"Spike," is all Giles can think to say.

"Rupert," nods Spike, "You well?"

"Not noticeably," says Giles, tired of the ailments of retirement, and the endless dialogue they produce. "You?"

"Creaky. Greying. Bored with humanity." Spike wrinkles his nose. "Wish we hadn't won, sometimes. It's taken all the savour from life, don't you think?"

Giles does not agree. Verbally, at least. Watchers deliver the world from evil, which they do not then lament. "Are you here for any particular reason?" It's been a decade, at the very least, since Spike got on his bike and rode into the flaming sunrise, shedding his old Council half-friends like snakeskin.

"Got bored. Again. Heard you were tottering on the brink." Giles makes a face, rejecting this. The girls exaggerate, absurdly. Spike shrugs. "Besides, bit short of cash. Thought you might put me in the way of earning some?"

Their eyes meet. The first time this was offered is very, very close, a memory Giles can almost feel on his flesh. It was indeed a long time ago, and in another country, and the vampire is a man now, and Giles is old. But it's still an offer that sets pulses racing, and the laughter in Spike's eyes mingles with the boredom of Giles's everyday to produce a simple answer.

He fumbles for his wallet. And his various medications. He may die in the attempt, but by god he's going to give it one more shot.

Ten Years On (Buffy, Willow, Faith)
So, on the whole, they did a good thing?

It's sort of hard to believe it, looking at the big hole in the ground that used to be their home. Joyce is in there. So is Tara. Jenny, Anya, Maggie Walsh, Amanda, Cassie, Molly, Annabel, Larry, half the classmates Willow once knew. Warren and Jonathan and Ben or possibly Glory. The remains of Caleb, Adam, the Master, the Anointed One and Acathla. All those dead soldiers and demons from the Initiative. Verruca. The Mayor.

(You'd think a whole dino-demon skeleton would show up a little, but of course they dissected him when they rebuilt the high school. In fact, Richard Wilkins III may be about the only adversary they ever faced that isn't in the hole – maybe he's in landfill, somewhere upstate…)

Willow's kind of boggled, trying to balance all that out. Good and evil, loved and lost. Gone.

"Willow?" says Buffy, miles away and just a few steps back from the edge. "You about done?"

She thinks it's about Tara, and of course it is, and of course Willow hates that her girl's down there, with so many lost souls and evil things. But it's about more, about how small Sunnydale is when you can see clear across it, and how big it felt when the Hellmouth was powering its pulse and throb. Willow spent her first twenty two years here, and that has to do stuff.

Buffy steps a little closer. "Faith has tequila."

Of course she does. Slayers and tequila, like bees and honey, these days. There's practically a uniform, the khaki or denim and soft leather or suede, hard-wearing, many pockets, and everyone has a flask, as well as a stake, and a knife, and a gun or two. It's more Faith than Buffy, more angry, less shiny, and maybe it makes it easier, to be a soldier in an army than just a girl with a bunch of friends.

Just… Willow doesn't see them too often, and now when she does, she sometimes finds it hard to tell them apart. Like once they were individuals, but now they are a tribe.

Like Sunnydale was once a town, and streets and houses and people and schools and shops and demons and now… it's just a big hole in the ground.

Willow, though? She's still Willow. Pretty sure of that. And, on the whole, they did a good thing.
