DescriptionGoogle 12 Monkeys please, don't think my summary would do it justice.

When a younger Buffy was put in the institution between LA and Sunnydale, a young man, slightly older than orthe same age as Dawn's age now, was pulled off the street ranting and raving about life after the Apocalypse. At least 90% casualties all over the face of the Earth, etc. He believes that he's been thrust back in time in order to avert it, but is now stranded five years earlier than he wanted to be. Buffy hears his prophecy, but puts it behind her along with most of the things that happened there. Just after she leaves (meaning she won't know about it, until the Scoobies do some research) the young man escapes from a locked room where he had been tied to the bed.

Over five years later, the young man pops into Sunnydale, without having aged a bit. Either he wanted to be by the Slayer and the Apocalypse originates somewhere else or the Hellmouth is the center... Either way he doesn't recognize the much older woman. He kidnaps Dawn or some other equal affront to the Scoobies so most of them turn against him and serious tracking ensues but, by Endgame, Dawn has fallen for him hard.

Extra points for the Trio (alive or dead) being worked in.

Extra points for Dawn and the young man inadvertantly causing the/an apocalypse, with an ending as dark as the original or as bright as Fight Club the Movie (Fight Club the Book ends not with a bang but with a whimper).
