Post Chosen, AU Angel.
Author’s Notes: I had to write this as a break from crossovers. And I wanted a straight Buffy fic to put on ff.net. And I came up with this spoof idea. I’m reading several post-post-Chosen kid fics, so I’m taking an opportunity to poke some fun at them. Most of them are fun and well written.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer et al were created by Joss Whedon and are owned by Mutant Enemy et al. Not infringement of any rights is intend by this piece of fan written fiction.
This is a nothing story. I’m not sure it qualifies as a drabble. If you want to use the characters/ children, please just let me know. Although I want to keep Daniel and Alexis for myself.
It is now exactly 200 words of story. And 200 words of notes, (including this part) as well. If you exclude the disclaimer and this sentence.

Kennedy refused to scream, especially despite Willow’s murmuring.
“It helps if you scream, let it out, it helps if you scream.”
“See, wasn’t that better?”
One final push and several bustle-filled minutes later she was allowed to hold her son.
“Oh, my God, he’s gorgeous.”
“What do want to call him?” Willow asked, grinning at the awed expression on her lover’s face. She knew that she had looked like that.
“Ken,” Kennedy said, with certainty.
Willow nodded, smiling.
“I wasn’t serious. Isn’t he amazing? Do you have a name picked out?”
“We could call him William,” Willow said. Kennedy looked at her oddly. “You know, after Spike.”
“What is with you people and names? I really, really, do not get it.”
“What’s wrong with William?”
“We’d shorten it to Will, which is your nickname. Xander’s daughter’s name’s Alexis. And their son is called Madoc. Fred and Gunn just called their son Frederick. Buffy has Elizabeth. Cordelia has Corin and Robyn. At least Dawn called her daughter Eve. Can we please think of something new to call him?”
“Can you think of anything?” Willow asked. She frowned. She’d never realised exactly how strange they were.
“Zane?” Kennedy asked.
