DescriptionBuffy/The Walking Dead - Dawn-Centered

After Buffy's death things are bad, but they're about to go from bad to worse! Willow goes through with getting the ingredients and convincing the others to raise Buffy. However, the Scoobies should know better by now; some Gods have a horrible sense of humor and don't appreciate being summoned by mortals!

The question becomes: is Buffy 'Patient Zero' or does Osiris's sense of humor shine through as the power of the spell raises someone else or even the entire graveyard around Buffy? Whichever it is, the virus spreads and the dead walk.

What happens to the Scoobies is up to you. They're at ground zero when everything starts going to hell but they've fought vampires, demons, AND zombies before, so they have as good a chance as anyone. However, if they survive they MUST be separated from Spike and Dawn.

Spike takes his promise to Buffy very seriously and protects Dawn as well as he can, by teaching her to protect herself and by taking her away from Sunnydale.

While I love Spike, it's probably best if he dies his true death and leaves Dawn on her own. Why? Because I want to see Dawn meet up with The Walking Dead group, and I think it would make an awesome fic if someone as young and dainty looking as Dawn managed to survive a good while on her own.

She's been through a lot, and I want to see those changes! She'll be harder, less trusting, and kind of broken inside but good at hiding it. Please, please, please keep her from reverting to the whiny brat from the show!!

Pairings are up to you. :)

The world has gone to hell in a hand basket and now Dawn is left to find a place in this new way of life all on her own.
