Grim up North. by DaveTurner

GRIM UP NORTH INFO.

Introduction.

Giles said that there was another Hellmouth in Cleveland; they were halfway to Ohio before he’d plucked up the courage to mention that he meant the one in Northern England. Times are hard for Buffy and the Scoobies and as everyone knows, ‘It’s Grim Up North’.

This is my idea of what Season Eight should have been about; it’s also a little AU. I’ve changed some of the back story from Seasons 2 & 3 of BtVS. But this will have no impact on the story line until story 11 ‘California Girls’.

This series has absolutely no connection to any other story or series I might have written.

Read, and I hope, enjoy.
