He reminded Dawn of Andrew a little: blond, spazztastic, probably knew every Green Lantern incarnation. Like he might be fun to talk to, if there weren’t an ever-so-much more exciting Slayer around.

He has always reminded me of Andrew, and I love that Dawn thinks the same.

The thought came unbidden, involuntary: It’s not apocalypse season yet.


and who’d have thought that particular false memory, the odor of exploded high school, would ever come in useful?

Oh, Dawn. This is a perfect detail.

surely she and a few other actuals could pull a reverse Thor Heyerdahl to Scandinavia, to Iceland, to Buffy.

I love the mix of historical reference and sisterly bond here.

AND THE ENDING. Well-done!

This is what happens when I procrastinate! Truth is, I wrote the entire thing almost two years ago; it's taken me this long to decide it didn't need any more work (or rather that, even if it did, it wasn't going to get it and it'd be a shame if it never saw the light of day).

I am so glad you like! It occurs to me that this is actually the longest Dawn-centric thing I've ever written. Much as I adore her, I somehow haven't written her very much; most of what I've written from her POV was in Seraph, when she was so young. Adult!Dawn is terrifying and badass, though. I should write more of her.

I love this quite a bit. Adelle's voice is so perfect. Topher is...annoying, fascinating, damaged...all the things that I love about him in just a few short strokes. The Faith/Echo idea will always amuse me, and the idea that not all apocalypses that affect the Summers gals will come from the demon realms is scarily true.

Yay, I am so glad you enjoyed it!

Yes. That's really where this longer story came from - the idea that it's easy to miss one apocalypse while you're busy looking for others. :\
