OMG SNICK WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!

established domesticity with no "omg I like girls?!"!!!

KEY AWARENESS

FALSE MEMORY AWARENESS

cuteybabes being a functional couple that talks about stuff!!!

a universe where Key-ness is used to the Scoobies advantage!

Giles/Faith connection in the background!

I'm just going to roll around in the perfection for a while and cry because this is so fabulous I cannot.

thank you thank you for writing/sharing

((curious how you feel about writing this? any writing-queer!Dawn-thoughts would be lovely))

Don't get me wrong, "omg I like girls?!" is not a storyline I'm tired of yet
Will never be tired of this (though I feel as though too much femmeslash focuses here - so it's a delight to get something else!).

Ditto! Keyverse ftw always.

(I never, ever require apologies for Faith/Giles sneaking in.)

And the only person I'm really interested in exploring her with in the Buffyverse is Illyria - I imagine they could be very interesting to each other, for Key/God-King reasons.
I could seriously get behind this. I'd love to see them interact!

I WILL ALWAYS SQUEE FOR FEMMESLASH DON'T YOU WORRY.

That Faith's nightmares would be the truth, that's truly quite scary. But that she shrugs them off in favour of the real woman in her arms is very characteristic, and I can see just how that would appeal to Dawn.

Also, I do love Dawn-memories, so hiding with the nail file is wonderful.

Yay, I am glad you liked. And I think fundamentally, both Faith and Dawn are very pragmatic people, occasional existential crises notwithstanding. :)

THIS IS SO COOL.

Oh wow, I love the way you tied the worlds without dawn and the ones with her together and made it sweet instead of bleak. The Keyness and the way their just happy together. I'm trying to compose a valid and eloquent comment here and I've been reduced to gushing so I'll just say that this was wonderful!

Oh yay, thank you! I am forever fascinated by the conflict of Dawn's memories vs. what actually happened; I've always wished canon had done something in that direction. I am glad it came across as sweet! As I told Brutti, I think fundamentally, both Faith and Dawn are very pragmatic people, occasional existential crises notwithstanding. :)
