I’ve mostly stayed far away from the Buffy Season 8 comics. I’m not a comic reader. I’m not a fan of Joss’s most… ahem… wild imaginings. But I’m vaguely aware of the general plot points of Season 8. It seems a lot of fanfic writers are also not on board with Season 8, as most post-Chosen fics depart from the comics fairly quickly.

Concept, unfinished. Buffy Season 4

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I read a fanfic rewrite of “A New Man” in which instead of Ethan Rayne turning Giles into a Fyarl demon, he did a body swap between Giles & Spike. That fic didn’t really delve much into what it would mean for Spike to be residing in a human body, so I took the idea and ran with it. All the metaphysical stuff is entirely made up, but I think it fits pretty well with Buffyverse mythology. Read the rest of this entry »
