An excerpt from the writings of Dawn Summers:On May 20th, 2003 we changed the face of the world. We pushed back the First Evil, sealed our pesky hellmouth permanently, destroying Sunnydale in the process and, oh yeah, called every potential slayer up to the plate. Not bad for a day’s work, unfortunately for us this fight never ends, it just changes venue. While we were winning our battles someone out there lost theirs, and the world changed again, this time for the worse.
An excerpt from the filmed diary of Andrew Wells:A man walks onto the screen and assumes the pose of a scholarly orator. He speaks to the camera.
“Change is the only constant of life.”He pauses, and considers his statement.
“Well change and death...”He stops again and slouches, before shaking his head and resuming his pose. He speaks again.
“Change and death are the only constants of this life... And pain...” He sighs and runs off screen, yelling.
“Hang on, I’ll start again.”
A.N.: Sorry if this seems a little vague. I just felt this sudden urge to get started on this story, which has been pestering me years to exist somewhere outside of my imagination.
