The End of Dark Willow – Take Two
Summary: There’s more than one way to kill an evil witch. Kind of the same premise as the first version, but different ending.
Timeline: end of season 6 ‘Two To Go’
Warning: Umm, not for Willow fans? Oh, and a bad word.
A/N: This is for JacobPhoenix, who’s a big fan of one of the heroes of this blurb.

When Willow, Buffy and Dawn suddenly appeared in the shop, Jonathon and Andrew stumbled back in fear, accidentally knocking over a display of spell ingredients. Even though they tried to hide, she still found them without any trouble.
“Abracadabra,” Willow mock-chanted as she threw magical lightning at the terrified duo.
Acting on pure impulse, they looked down, shrugged as if they had nothing to lose and each one grabbed a side of the bucket at their feet and threw the contents at the enraged witch.
“Really?” she sneered while the water dripped off her. “What do you think this is…the Wizard of Oz? Which one of you is Dorothy and which one is Toto? I think Jonathon should be Toto.” With that, she gestured at the brunette and turned him into Toto’s lookalike.
Unfortunately for her, casting magick was the last ingredient necessary for the accidental potion created when the boys knocked over the display earlier. Just like in the movie, she slowly began to melt away, screaming in disgust as she did so, “You’ve got to be fucking kidding--”
Anya breathed a sigh of relief that the danger was over. Buffy and Xander turned to glare menacingly at the wannabe villains.
Since Jonathon couldn’t speak, Andrew hurriedly whimpered, “How were we supposed to know that would actually work? I mean, that’s just insane! How could she take a shower or even drink if water could melt her?”
Andrew appeared to be working himself up into a full-blown rant, so Dawn cut him off, “Hey, she was going to turn me back into a glowing ball of energy, I’m not shedding any tears for her.”
A/N: I know Dawn might sound harsh, but remember she was just threatened by the person in question. She can mourn Willow later after the adrenaline has worn off. Besides, that seemed like a good place to end the ficlet.
