Rating: R-For violence and some language.
Characters and show are owned by JW and ME-unfortunately...Explains why the show
went down the toilet.
Feedback: As much as possible.
Third in my B/F series. This is, of course, a teleplay and a follow up to "The
Good..." and "Changes". Read those. They're great and it'll help
to grasp some stuff that goes on here. The title is the name of a B/F site that
may or may not still be up and running. In the previous episode, the Dark Man's
name is Christopher Dean and tells Faith she can call him Dino. Well, since he's
in this episode, he'll go by Dino primarily with me as the writer-Elle, his sister,
will refer to him as Chris on occasion. Just like earlier, problems with formatting
in the messages/emails has forced me to put slashes in between dual column dialogue
blocks so people know who's saying what. You'll see what I mean here. Enjoy!Dedication:
Since I finished this on July 4-Independence Day-Thank You America for Being the
Greatest Country That Ever Existed! Happy Birthday!

Spike battles evil temptation with an old friend. Buffy and
Faith's "relationship" runs hot and cold. Dawn's having friendship issues
|As Voiced By the Spirit of Undefeated Heavyweight Champion Rocky Marciano-|
Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Joss Whedon and Mutant Enemy decided to screw over its fans by having Spike
attempt to rape Buffy and then have Buffy pine after her attempted rapist less
than a day later-this on a show supposedly about female empowerment-and
then Spike got a soul for reasons that are still unknown since Spike was clearly
duped on the screen via his constant usage of the word "BITCH" in reference to
Buffy, yet ME felt it necessary to assert in interviews that Spike WANTED the
soul out of love for Buffy. Now, the brilliant writer of this upcoming episode-despite
being anti-ME and finding their claims to be pathetically loaded with bullshit-will
adhere to their explanation for creative purposes.
Now that that's out of the way...Spike got a soul. He came back and was
tortured by it. Buffy's conflicted emotionally, especially with Faith back.
Buffy and Faith fought in numerous different ways, but seemed to make up
and shared an intimate moment at Faith's old apartment. Dawn made
friends with Elle, the new girl, but that went downhill once her brother was
suspected of being a mass murderer. Spike and Xander did some sort of
male bonding. There was absolutely ZERO Kennedy-allowing most of a nation to sleep peacefully that night, except many of
those at The Cat's Meow. What can I say, the writer just HATES Kennedy.
EXT. CEMETERY, EAST AREA - NIGHT
BUFFY and FAITH take on five VAMPS. Buffy lands several
blows to Vamp 1 and stakes him. Faith does the same and
stakes Vamp 2. Faith then takes on Vamp 3 as Buffy deals
with Vamps 4 and 5. Buffy kicks Vamp 4 twice, kicking him
into Vamp 5. As the Vamps stagger, Buffy launches herself
Nearby spectating are SPIKE, DINO, and XANDER. Spike smokes
a cigarette and drinks a beer; Dino eats popcorn; Xander
peers through binoculars.
Buffy stakes Vamp 4 and gets into it with Vamp 5. Faith
wails on Vamp 3. In total sync, Buffy and Faith hit their
respective vamps with identical shots, push the Vamps so
they're back-to-back, and slam their stakes in
simultaneously. Through the dust, Buffy and Faith LAUGH and
Still got it.
Can't lose it.
Dino and Xander applaud.
Excellent. Magnificent. Beautiful. Pure, joyous,
Four stars, two thumbs up, erotic battle in all its

tree. That was really missed this so much.
Yeah, what they said.
You were right--this IS better than

Better than everything else in the
Basically it's what they just did
with a pornographic subtext.
Spike angrily throws his beer away and walks off.
Spike turns but keeps backpedaling.
Don't need me so I'm gonna turn in.
You know us vampires need our day-
rest and all, what with the sun
It's barely past midnight.
Exactly. Only 4 plus hours til I
become sun-dried, put on the
market, and sold to some demon-
spawning demon or God forbid a
vegetarian with an iron deficiency
and a fetish for food-sex.
Buffy, Faith, and Dino stare in bewilderment. Xander takes
some popcorn. Spike waves them off.
Spike turns and leaves. Buffy and Faith glance at each other.
Must be the British Ale.
Dino nods in agreement.
EXT. CEMETERY, WEST AREA - NIGHT
Spike stalks along MUTTERING to himself.
Bloody vomit-inducing slayer

Aww, can't lose it. Bombastically
shit-worthy IT. Damn IT. I don't

and I'm left to complain. Just

What has my Spike so disturbed?
Spike halts and spins to find what looks like DRUSILLA. She
grins psychotically and slowly approaches Spike who rolls

Why would I invade my love's

So what--no physical form means you
got no brain? I'm not in the mood.
You're not happy to see me my dear,
Drusilla stops right in front of Spike. She raises her hand
and strokes Spike's cheek--genuine contact. Spike's eyes
