Life Can Be CrazyAuthor:
I don’t own them; if I did I wouldn’t be writing fanfiction. Summary:
Ya know, I never thought my life would end up this way… (Dawn’s POV)Pairings:
BtVS – The Gift. LVG - NoneWarnings:
Okay, last chapter. I hope everyone liked this and that no one’s too disappointed that this is it.
So, yeah. I never thought my life would end up like this. Instead of fighting vampires and demons and helping to save the world, I’m a professional grifter, a thief. I’m a member of the baddest crew this side of the Atlantic…Hell, that side of the Atlantic, too. What can I say? We’re good.
Anyway, I’ve finally found my place, and I’m happier than I’ve even come close to being since Buffy died. These people are my family now. They accept me for who I am. Completely.
Nate and Sophie are like the parents in our little family of thieves. Hardison is my geeky, computer hacker of a brother. Parker is the sister who’s just as wacky as I am; she even plays kitten poker with me every Saturday night, both of us ignoring the looks we get from the others.
As for Eliot, well, I think the two years we’ve been together and the shiny platinum and diamond ring (not stolen, thank you very much) resting comfortably on my left ring finger answers that better than I ever could.
I don’t regret this life. It may not be what I expected, but I love it just the same. I may not be fighting vampires and demons and averting apocalypses, but I’m still helping people. I have a job I enjoy, people I love who love me, including a man I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to have children with and grow old with.
The only thing I really regret is having no idea where Spike is or what happened to him. But we’re working on that. It’s slow-going but we’re looking for him. I’m hoping we’ll find him, or at least have a lead on him, in the next six months. He’s the only family I have left from before, and I’d really love it if he could be there to walk me down the aisle. I think he’d be proud of me. Mom and Buffy, too. Sure, the job may be slightly iffy, but I think they’d understand; I am helping people, after all.
Buffy told me that the hardest thing in this world is to live in it. She wanted me to be brave, to live. So, I am. But enough reminiscing. Mom and Buffy wouldn’t want me to live in the past. They’d want me to embrace the present, because it’s a gift. And it may not be what I expected, but it’s mine.
Now…I have an incredibly sexy fiancé to ravish, if you don’t mind…Later.
Well, what did you think? I hope everyone liked it, I had fun writing it. Review, please?
