In canon, Joyce owns an art gallery. In fandom, Joyce (almost) always owns an art gallery. It seems like a curious blind spot, and one ripe for some creative rethinking. Your challenge is as follows: come up with an alternative career for Joyce, and write a story of any length that explores how Joyce's alternate career changes (or doesn't change) events for Joyce specifically and her family in general. If the art gallery is still in the picture somehow, is it a front for something else? If Joyce never owned an art gallery, what kind of work does she do instead?

Sirius Black's trademark pun meets the Joker's trademark 'joke.'

Create a plausible context for the line 'Why so Sirius?'. Neither of the characters mentioned above necessarily need be present in the flesh.


Bonus points for including one or more of the following:

_References to the 'Killing Joke,' especially via Hellmouth analogs

_Pun(s) or plays on other names

_Elaboration on what it means to be 'Sirius' as opposed to 'serious'

In an alternate universe, Jesse rises not as a vampire but as an Immortal.

Bonus points for exploring the new BtVS dynamics thoroughly and incorporating a discussion of vampires v. Highlander-style Immortality.
