DescriptionSet after Buffy’s resurrection in season 6. Like the show Buffy had been ripped out of heaven by her friends, but unlike the show she hasn’t forgiven them.

When she realises that living in Sunnydale (with the constant negative energy that the Hellmouth emits) is never going to let her recover from the loss of heaven, she decides to leave.

To make matters worse Dawn died after Buffy did (since she was never created to survive) and so Buffy decides to go and see the only family that she has left that still cares about her- her Uncle Joe Dawson in Seacouver.


Buffy doesn’t immediately meet any immortals, but when she meets Duncan again for the first time in years, he’s shocked to discover that she’s immortal, since when he saw her a few years before she wasn’t even a pre-immortal. The energy from Willow’s spell is going to keep her alive forever (barring death by decapitation) and this isn’t exactly good news for Buffy since she’ll now never return to where she was happiest.

After she’s been living with Joe for a while and hanging out with the other Immortals, Buffy comes to realise that she has feelings for Methos, and he finds her a pretty fascinating person, eventually developing feelings for her too. Initially Joe isn’t happy about the relationship, but he realises that Methos is helping her to live again.

Where the story heads from here is completely up to you, but the Scoobies should probably make an appearance, trying to drag her back to California (not feeling even slightly guilty about what they did to her, simply being angry that she left them). Needless to say I don't think that Buffy's new family and friends would let her go against her wishes.

Pairing: Buffy/Methos
