Vivia's book: Slippery Jack (PG)

Pretty much, where it all began. Slippery Jack is a fungus, btw. Educational!


"There's a spell that could save Spike?" Buffy could feel her face's confusion. On the one hand: yay, because Spike dying painfully was literally the worst thing that had happened to her. At least for a few years. But also boo, because godammit, a spell's what got them into this mess. Well, a spell, and a prophecy, and the end of the world again, and a mad sorcerer with the infinite power of geothermal whoosis, but it all spelled a lesson Buffy already really knew: don't mess with magic.

"Yes," Willow was saying, full of bright confidence. "We just, you know, scrape the slime off some mushrooms, mix it with dragon's blood and skeleton teeth and, uh, turn him into a real boy. And the curse will be powerless."

Buffy was still stuck on the mushroom slime part, but eventually Willow's words penetrated. Mostly on account of the big honking silence and Willow's expectant look. "A real boy?"

"Yuhuh. To save him, we, um, make him human."

"You can do that?"


Buffy should have known better. And she definitely should have asked for more information about that airy 'Sure'.

Don't mess with magic. Duh.

MORE, PLEASE! We don't see Willow in very many fics on this site, do we? I'm eager to see where this goes. (Please say it does - you keep teasing me with these "almost 'verses and series." You are a cruel mistress!)

*g* It's pretty much done now, if you like to catch up on it. I haven't left you hanging this time.

One should always worry when Willow is confident.

Always, always worry.

Like the others above I love your Willow in this. Love also the whole description of the situation which is hilariously Buffy-like.

Thanks! I find Buffy voice comes and goes for me, but it's good to know it's right here.

Your gift for character voices astounds me.

But whu-oh. You just know this can go nowhere good. Duh.

You're too kind, but thank you! Buffy and Willow both come and go for me a bit, alas.

There are always consequences to witchy mojo. Great voices here.
