Introductory note: on Buffyforums, there's a season three rewatch and I'm writing a bit about Dead Man's Party
. To try to get into the POVs of the Sunnydale characters, I wrote this.
I'm doing well in general, but I'm still fragile -- so if you don't like it, well, you know, be gentle! I include this disclaimer (and would prefer not to link to *this* version, though linking to the AO3 version is okay should I post it there) because I know how divisive this episode is, even if I'm only talking about it glancingly.
The POV style is somewhat inspired by beer_good_foamy
's excellent Building Character
, which is also of a much higher level of artistry and is strongly recommended.
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Takes place: Sunnydale, around the first week of school in s3, before "Dead Man's Party."
Characters: Giles, Xander, Willow, Cordelia, Joyce.
