Summary: Spike and the Slayers had still not returned from their mission. Now all an injured Buffy could do was listen to the tolling of the bell and say a silent prayer.
This one off is an answer to a challenge poem, posted by Sablerose on WWOMB years ago

Summary: AR: Buffy tried to convince the Council to let her go and pursue her own life, but the Council refused. They had a vested interest in grooming potentials for mating. Without a guardian mate a potential slayer’s abilities would not come to fruition. Every unclaimed slayer was a lost warrior against evil. Now her body has quickened, for the third and last time it calls for a guardian mate.
Guardians are male warriors with hyper senses and a drive to protect their territory from evil.

Summary: This first posting is a set of drabbles. Most were written years ago, but have now been expanded, rewritten, and in some cases had some character changes. Only two chapters are completely new.  I love writing about Spike and he is at his best when paired with Buffy, but you have to admit, his unlife has had its…moments. I hope you like the ones I’ve documented here.

There was a flash of blue light and a gaudily dressed demon appeared. “I’m Whistler, agent for the Powers That Be. “How you doin’, Champion?”

Summary: Spike has died to save the world and deserves a reward. But the cosmos needs champions, so he is offered a chance to save a Buffy, in an alternate reality, a Buffy that is alone and being stalked by evil. Spike accepts the offer and is sent back as a sentinel, committed to the one reason for his existence, in every life he will save her.
~~~
For those that are unfamiliar with the TV series The Sentinel:
Sentinels have an instinctual drive to protect their home territory. They have five super senses and extra musculature for added strength. The problem is Sentinels need to bond with a Guide. Guides are people with high empathic abilities that can keep Sentinels from turning to the dark side. In other words, going crazy and killing every human in sight. They are a lot like a vampire, just without the drinking of blood and burning in the sun, and they are alive, not undead.

Summary: Buffy woke up alone and sore, on the bare, hard-packed ground, in a post-apocalyptic world. “Hey Whistler,” she exhaled, it was barely a whisper, she hadn’t enough emotional strength left in her for anything more. “Champion of the people here, the thing is there are no people, no missions, the world is lost, so let me rest. I can’t be a champion of a dead world.” 
 
“The Powers have a mission for you, Slayer. They’ve lost a world, they want it back, and you are their best hope.”
 
Buffy was quiet for a moment. She knew this was her chance. “Send Spike back with me, and you’ve got a deal.”
