A series which veers off-canon after Something Blue with a surprise visit from the Hellions, and rewrites itself in rather interesting, often agonizing, but hopefully useful ways thereafter as each new wicked thing comes to town.
Begun because I was attacked by a bad dream, launched because of the Elysian Fields Big Bads Challenge, and continued because wicked plot bunnies continued to assault. Because when something wicked this way comes, it's usually smutty, sometimes slutty, often taboo, occasionally quite painful... and most definitely throws canon right the hell out of the damn window. With Shakespeare. Like ya do.
And heh, I didn't make the pun, YOU did.
Alright, if you have to ask what pun, maybe I did...

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.
