5 Works in Lydia (BtVS)
29 Sep 2020
Part 2 of "Something Wicked" series
(S5, beginning with "Buffy vs Dracula")
Spuffy have been together for a while now. Things have been great. The Scoobies have more or less accepted the reality of their couplehood, Spike finally has his own place, so there’s plenty of thoroughly excellent shag-time, and college is kind of fun when you have a worldly, undead tutor to poke fun at your instructors and help you remember your lessons with fascinating anecdotes or, when that fails, incredibly memorable sexy-times. Life is actually, like, bordering on good.
But then Mr. Eurovamp 2000 blows into town and causes a bunch of jealousy. And then Buffy starts having a bunch of crappy Slayer dreams about glowy purply stuff. And Dawn is going off the hook even more than usual, and Mom is acting weird… And, as if there’s not enough to deal with, Buffy’s pretty sure that idiot Riley Finn is still lurking around town trying to come up with a reason to shoot her boyfriend…
Buffy should have known things couldn’t stay yummy for long. She probably would have started to worry if it had.

This thesis is based on Lydia the Watcher's line in the episode "Checkpoint" (Buffy season 5). On first meeting Spike she says in awe, "I wrote my thesis on you!"

A lot of people in Sunnydale are dealing with specific person shaped holes in their lives. Some of them, maybe not so much dealing. Some of them maybe not so much lives. ...After a while, maybe not all that specific either. And then, hey, "Toto, I don't think we're in Sunnydale anymore!"

Giles resigns his position after Buffy's S5 death, and the Watchers send Lydia Chalmers to be their representative on the Hellmouth.
Lydia had never found the ordinary to be interesting at all.
