(The suit wasn't for Anya.  Because Anya didn't approve of it, because it put Xander in harm's way and didn't earn them any money and she understands people saving the world when it's their job but not when it's volunteer work which just makes her death that much sadder.
It was for Cordy.
No one ever wears it, but he makes sure it doesn't get dusty and is in good working order.

          “Whose suit is this?” Krista asks, and blinks as the bouncy, happy Knight disappears between one second and the next.
          She turns.  He looks like he’s going to cry.
          “She never got to wear it.  She never got to wear it.  I never even got to tell her I’d made it.  It was going to be a surprise.”
          Kris hopes, honestly hopes, that he’s not talking about the dead fiancée, but she’s not going to ask further.  The tabloids are already making enough of a mess of his private life.

Summary: Anya's jealous.
Word Count: 500
Rating: Teen

          Anya’s apparently jealous of me, which makes me roll my eyes.  Like I want to replace her.  The only reason she’s not tempted to go back to being a vengeance demon just to deal with me is that I’m in a different city and therefore can’t continue (not that we ever went that far, but I don’t think she understands the concept of a teenage romance) to give him orgasms.  Like I would. 
          She’d probably be angrier if he told her what we talked about, but he doesn’t, and apparently that makes her insecure. 
          Mostly I’m angry at her because she doesn’t know who she is as a human enough for her to be secure about a relationship, and she wants the American Dream which he’ll never be normal enough to give her, and she loves him more than she realizes but a lot of it at the moment is his money, and maybe it’s a little hypocritical (well, to the woman I used to be, anyway), but the thought of her acting as a misguided gold-digger makes my blood boil.  “I just—and I don’t care if you tell anyone I said this because no one would believe it anyway—I think you can do better than someone who only’s interested in you for your money.  Or mainly interested in you for your money.”
          He sighs into the phone and turns to stare at the traffic.  “I’m not—I’m not arguing with you, I just—”  He drums his fingers against his chest in a distracted pattern I’ve come to recognize.  “I do like her.  I do.  I’m not sure I love her, but you date to find that out, right?  And she needs me.  Maybe we’re not perfect for each other, but if you’ve seen the way everyone else treats her…”
          I can imagine, unfortunately.  Not that any of them do it intentionally, but it happens.  It’s easy to be distracted when you’re fighting for your life so much.
          “You could be just friends.  It’s helped me enough,” I point out, but he shakes his head.
          “I don’t think she’d accept or recognize it, unfortunately,” he responds.  “And the sex life is pretty good.”
          I smile despite myself and shake my head.  “While I’m the last one to say that’s not a decent enough excuse, I think she’s confused about her feelings, and feelings in a relationship like that only lead places of the bad.”
          He nods with another wry expression.  “I have a feeling it’ll lead to horrible places, but I’m not sure how to fix it, because I’m pretty sure breaking up with her won’t lead to any better places.”  He glances up again and pushes his shades back up again.  “Well, I got class in twenty minutes, so I guess I’ll talk to you later.”
          “You better,” I respond with what I hope is an intimidating frown, and continue frowning after he gets off.  I hope he’s not having one of his Spider Sense moments.

          “Y-you found the Dr. Burkle?  Please tell her that I’m a fan.  A really, really big fan.  And that I would like, I mean.  If she needs-slash-wants any money for her research, any at all, just tell me and I’ll be happy to provide, because man-oh-man…I’m having the biggest science boner right now, and please don’t tell her that, she’ll think I’m a creep, it’s not meant the way it sounds…”
          All right, so entire portions of that ‘stuck in another dimension’ thing sucked, but if this is what I get to come back to, I don’t mind so much.
          “It’s nice to hear from you too, Xander.”  I pause.  “I’m sorry to hear about Buffy.”
          “All the more reason to throw money at geniuses,” he responds, and hangs up.

THIS STORY MAKES ME SO HAPPY AND SAD AT THE SAME TIME
BECAUSE CORDY'S HERE AND CORDY'S AWESOME AND I LOVE HER
AND YET SHE DIES IN THIS UNIVERSE
Fun fact: I was just going to allude to this, and then Cordy just randomly calls up Xander and is like "this is getting shown on-screen.  I didn't have a cool enough part on either show.  The least you can do is let me have my time on the stage here", and I was like...well, fair point.  (sometimes my characters do things i don't expect and I just go with it.)
Also, it's kinda interesting that it got written in first person, because I think that's legit the first time for this 'verse.
That's a huge failure on the part of Angel.  I would've loved just a dropped line about how she calls Xander or vice versa, because it would be a big moment of growth for both of them.  Because yes, it's a failed relationship, and I think both of them would acknowledge that, and Xander would probably be too embarrassed to talk to her for a while, but eventually he'd get over himself because they both still love each other, just not in the same way.  Not in a romantic way.  If he felt he could gossip or vent with anyone, Xander would probably go with Cordy, because she's not there, and she's actually proven her mature self to not tell too many secrets.  Buffy was such a teenage show because when relationships ended they weren't brought up again unless it could serve as more angst/drama.  But if anyone, I think Xander would be the type to still be friends with and die for his exes (assuming they weren't killed/dusted for attempting to nom him on the first date).

P.S. Apparently I've been forgetting ratings for a while through incomplete copy/paste...luckily I lurk at The Sunnydale Herald and noticed they were labeling the fics 'not rated', so thanks there!  also is that a P4 Death card?  Just when I thought I couldn't love you any more /grins

That's actually a larger list than he thinks. )

It is one of the great fails of the last season of Buffy that we never got to see the First torturing anyone else.  Because, let's be honest.  This is the Buffy crew.  They've had so many people die around them.  I would've liked to see more of that, which maybe makes me cruel, except for the fact that I like...
It's not just to watch them suffer.  Or be angsty or hurt each other.  They do enough on their own.
It would've felt more like a final season to look back on everything that came before and reflect on the deaths and friendships and whatnot.  I mean, people rarely remember Jesse's name (this is people who have watched the show multiple times and I've seen a vast majority of the episodes once.  Crazy, right?) but he was Xander's friend and Willow's friend and he died and Xander killed him.  Or the demon wearing his face.  That's such a pivotal moment and of course Willow and Xander would shrug it off like it was nothing because they're the king and queen of compartmentalization but it was not nothing.  It would continue to haunt them, particularly out of the blue, because that's how guilt works.
Also, it would've made the First that much more dangerous.  We don't see the First do that much.  It's mostly the ancient vampires that are really, really hard to kill, and controlled Spike, and it's so easy to focus on the physical threats because they were shown more.  But this is the First.  The embodiment (ha!  given that it's not actually corporeal...no?) of the concept of all Evil with a capital E.  It would twist the knife.  It would remind them of all the people they failed to save.  It would take on the faces of all the people they loved and lost and taunt them.  You know when Spike's working for Adam and he knows exactly what to say to get them all not only doubting each other but doubting themselves?  The exact words to punch a hole in someone's gut?
The interesting thing about this is that there's a similarity.  Spike might've been "de-fanged" (i.e. not a physical threat) but he knew exactly what to say to break them.  The First should've been like that.  Except so much more so.
Finally, I didn't go into complete detail here.  I showed the first times that Jesse and Cordy showed up, but they were back.  Along with many others.  Partly that's because the imagination tends to be worse than a certainty.  I'm betting my reader's minds can conjure up worse than anything I can write.  (At least, I've found that's true when I'm on the reader's side.)  Also partly because it triggered a panic attack.  (Which I've experienced, if not, luckily, too recently, so I'm writing from my own experience there.)  (It being the First, its words probably magically burn onto the synapses, though.  Or maybe it'll whisper again in his nightmares...)
Wow, did not intend for that to get long.
