Author’s Note: I anchored this to The Zeppo by mentioning the Sisterhood of Jhe, however it has almost nothing to do with that episode. Place this chronologically before then by just a smidge.

Rating: FRT: Contains Some Mature Themes: Parental Supervision Suggested.

Word Count: 4,767.

Episode #3: The Witch.
Disclaimer: Another day, another…they don’t pay me anything at all. I just do this to amuse myself and you. That’s what allows me and mine to slip under the radar while playing with characters created by those more fortunate than us.
Author’s Note: This plot bunny has been sitting around collecting dust since before I started this series. It comes from an idea that Howard Russell had years ago that never came to fruition based on this Xander quote from the episode The Witch: “Alright. Into battle I go. Would you ask her out for me? No. Man. Me. Battle.”

Rating: FRT: Mature Themes: Parental Supervision Suggested.
Prompt: #286 : Take a Stand @ [info]tamingthemuse.
Word Count: 1,662.
Comma Guy: Howard Russell.
Pairing: Buffy/Willow.
Disclaimer: Another day, another…they don’t pay me anything at all. I just do this to amuse myself and you. That’s what allows me and mine to slip under the radar while playing with characters created by those more fortunate than us.
Author’s Note: This is set in my Steps-verse where Buffy and Willow are involved; however the primary purpose of this story is to show how Buffy is coping. The events here take place in a similar time frame with Epitaph.
