I have three fics floating about my head, but I only remember one tiny scene from each, so here's hoping......
1. Xanders dad is tied up in the basement and Spike and Angel are there to beat him up kill him? Spike can't hurt him so Angel's going to do it for him (Sires duty type thing). I think there's something about Xanders dad seeing Spike and Angel in game face and then he starts begging to be let go offering them Xander in exchange, and Spike says something like that's why we're here because Xander is his consort/mate/boyfriend........
2. Angel takes Spike and the Scooby Gang to the court of Aurelius for protection. Which turns out to be a big mansion filled with Vampires of the Aurelius clan. Xander becomes a bit of a favorite with the head of the family and I think he's taught to fight, but I could be wrong.......
3. There's something big happening and Xander becomes take charge guy. Johnathon is working at the Magic Box, and Xander delegates stuff to him. They get in touch with their graduating class and call them to arms again. They might be going up against the Initiative and they take their stand in a multistory car park...........
I know there's hardly any information but any help would be so great even if you can't remember the story but might have a bit plot to help spark others.
Regardless, Thank you.

I have been looking for this fic for at least a week and I'm at my wits end. All I remember is a short scene after Restless (I think that's the season 4 finale) where Xander has gone home to sleep off the spell used to defeat Adam. Spike is living with him and becomes seriously worried when Xander's heart stops after going through his dream with the first slayer. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
i'm looking for xander-centric fic that have jesse in them. NOT pre buffy, but fics where jesse didn't die or maybe he came back.
I've seen a lot of people post requests for recs and searching for fics lately, so I thought I'd join the group!
Here's the thing:
Something that has always bugged me is that at some point in Season 7, someone (a summoned being? Great Flying Spaghetti Monster?) tells Buffy that the reason that the First was loosed and everything has been going to pot is because she died at the end of Season 1 and came back again, therefore bringing two Slayers into the world and shifting the balance, or whatever. Buffy, of course, thinks this is all her fault.
But if you think about it, she didn't PLAN on coming back to life. In fact, the only reason she came back is because Xander gave her CPR, and that makes everything: the shifting balance, the rise of the First, the deaths of all those people, ultimately Xander's fault. Yes, otherwise we would not have a wonderful TV show and the Master would have risen, yadda yadda yadda, but eventually the world would have righted itself with the new Slayer doing Slayer-type things, I'm sure. Because they had to right the balance, or whatnot. And what with the PTB of the Buffyverse so fixated on "balance", I'm sure that if we had let the show go on long enough there would have been a Super Team of Evil to balance out all the babySlayers.
Are there any fics where Xander learns about this? Where someone accidentally drops the reason why the First and seasons 2-7 and deaths were his fault?
If not, could someone write this fic? Have I sparked a bunny in any of you?
