A Brass Humanity: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Introduction
Buffy wishes that she was an evil soulless Vampire forever with no way to shift human. Then, her mom and the Scoobies shunned her. She got kind of angry at them and makes a wish. It soon comes true and even if they try to restore her soul, she can’t be cursed. She is to stay evil and gets a ton of minions to join her including Spike and Dru from Brazil.
Buffy. Spike. Willow. Angel. Harmony. Lorne. And Wesley: They are the new Scooby Gang and Harmony finally likes Buffy more than Cordelia because Buffy never bossed her around or told her what to do and was never afraid of a few demons.
Plus Wesley enjoys training his new charge and Lorne loves her like a daughter. Angel is jealous of Spike/Buffy being together until Willow shows him how to truly love without losing a soul, but getting it anchored instead. Spike’s soul can’t be lost either.
She killed Giles out of revenge and now all of the Slayers are after her except for Faith. A soulless Buffy snaps Giles’ neck to ensure that she doesn’t swing for their team.

Spike – James Marsters
Willow – Alyson Hannigan
Angel – David Boreanaz

Wesley – Alexis Denisof
Harmony –
Giles – Anthony Head

Chapter 1
It’s almost comical, watching them mourn her. A stress reliever. A few days ago, they found her dead body. In fact, even she thought she was dead lying on the ground, face down, and hair ruined. But, she didn’t think of this, being a Vampire turned by something illogical, one that didn’t have a rational explanation.
They thought she committed suicide, did they…? Went out and got herself killed by a random Vamp. Well, she’s very much alive and very much evil. The fuckin Cordy was going to die!
Angelus doesn’t get his soul returned and stays alive, but Drusilla pushes Buffy into Acathla. Soon, Angelus Dru and Spike will rule Sunny Dale while Buffy’s in Hell facing her Vampire double, She says something that will make Buffy want to become a Vampire by showing her that she could go to Heaven and leave her Demon on the Earth and will show her all of Giles’ betrayals/what could happen to her. She gets to see her future through a looking glass of Hell.
That leaves her questioning her friends until she decides to become a full Vampire and sadly she doesn’t go anywhere but in this Demonic body forever and she’s even happy. She is glad to get rid of her calling and even though with a soul, becomes bad. The other Vampire disappears, spitting her out of Acathla and into Angel’s apartment which he now abandoned to live at the factory.
Chapter 2

She ran down Cordelia’s car as she saw her drive by. Jumping in, she dragged her out. The Cheerleader screamed as she was pulled carelessly through the cement ground.
“You’re going to pay,” she dug her nails harsher into her scalp. “B- Buffy,” she asked.
The ex Slayer smacked her. “Don’t talk!”

“You’re supposed to be helping people!”
“Helping stingy people like you, I don’t think so sugar!!!”
“In fact, I eat people like you,” she grinned. The prep looked at her, frightened.

Chapter 3
Buffy loved being in her evil body. It felt good to go after the goody goodys. Cordelia was a bitch. Buffy couldn’t stand her—never could. She hated seeing her and Xander together. Cordelia could never measure up to Xander. Xander deserved better than her. Someone like her. But she was torn—torn between Xander and Angel. Geez, Angel was smokin’ hot. Buffy’s thoughts were suddenly interrupted when Angel showed up.
“Buffy?”
“Huh?” Buffy asked when Angel broke her thoughts.
“I thought you were dead?” Angel asked confused.
“Well, I’m not!” Buffy said harshly.
“So, where you been?”
“In hell, battling my evil twin!” the evil Buffy spat out at him.
“Your evil twin? I don’t understand?”
“There’s an evil Buffy-look-a-like running around Sunnydale wreaking havoc.” The evil Buffy informed Angel.
“Really? Well I’ll keep an eye out for her.”
“Great, Angelus!” evil Buffy said. “You do that!”
As evil Buffy watched Angel leave, she smiled to herself, “Oh, Angel, you’re so gullible. You don’t even realize the real Buffy when you see her.”
If Buffy could fool Angel, she knew she’d have no problem fooling the rest of the gang! This was going to be too easy!
Chapter 4
No one was going to find the other Buffy, the one every thinks is Evil-Buffy, but is really the Good-Buffy. Good-Buffy was safely tucked away…for now! Now! Time to wreak havoc on Sunnydale—Evil-Buffy style!
Evil-Buffy was going to love impersonating Good-Buffy! Sunnydale won’t know what hit them!
Buffy met Lorne and Wesley and the new Scooby gang at Giles’ store. Everyone thought that Giles was dead, but truth was, he was locked away with Good-Buffy.
“Buffy?” Harmony said, happy to see her.
“Yes, Harmony. I’m here.” Buffy acknowledge her.
“I glad you’re finally here!” Harmony said sucking up, to Willow’s chagrin.
“Gee, Harmony, suck up much!” Willow said, jealously.
“Oh, Willow, it’s ok. I love you both!” Buffy told them both.
Geez, how did Buffy manage with these losers? Evil-Buffy thought to herself. As Willow and Harmony vied for Buffy’s friendship, Evil-Buffy was sizing up the Scooby gang. Willow was witch-wannabe; Harmony was a suck-up, but could prove to be an ally; Lorne could be the father-figure that Giles never was; Wesley was smoking hot—what did Buffy see in Angelus? Angelus was a wimp.
Then they came in—Cordy and Xander—ewwww! Gross! What did Xander ever see in that? Cordy was a snob, a goody goody. Poor Xander, Evil-Buffy thought to herself. She could show Xander a thing or two.
Cordy noticed Buffy eyeing Xander and spoke up, “Buffy, are you eyeing my boyfriend?”
“Yeah, Cordy, I was thinking of taking him from you.” Buffy shot back sarcastically.
“Well, he’s mine!” Cordy reminded Buffy. “I know how much you’ve wanted Xander, but he’s mine!”
“Don’t worry. Wouldn’t dream of it!” Buffy reassured Cordy.
Buffy didn’t want Xander anyway. Not when the most gorgeous guy walked into the room. Spike. Spike made Angelus look like chopped liver. That blond hair and six-pack. Buffy had to keep herself in check.
“Remember why you’re here?” Buffy reminded herself. “Leave Spike alone.”
It looked like Spike was off limits too when Drusilla sidled up to Spike and kissed him.
Gross! Did everyone here in Sunnydale think about sex? First Cordy and Xander, now Spike and Drusilla.
Buffy had to get out! Way too much sex in Sunnydale! Maybe she should rename it Sexydale?
Chapter 5
As soon as Buffy left the sex-crazed twits, Faith found her in the cemetery.
“Buffy, what are you doing here?” Faith asked.
“I had to get away. Too much sex in Sexy. . .er-Sunnydale.” Buffy said, wanting to barf.
“You jealous because you’re not getting any from Angel?” Faith taunted, debating whether or not to tell Buffy she was with him.
“Why? You hot for that wimp, Angelus?” Buffy asked.
“No.” Faith lied. “Angel isn’t my type.”
“Liar!” Buffy accused.
“I am not!” Faith defended her lies.”
“I saw you with Angelus!” Buffy shot out, hoping to get a confession out of Faith.
“Okay. Okay. I admit it.” Faith confessed. “Angel and I are together!”
“Well, thank you, Faith. You traitor!” Buffy accused.
“Wait? You didn’t know I was with Angel?” Faith questioned her.
“That’s right, Faith, I tricked you!” Buffy shot out.
“So you are jealous!” Faith accused.
“Oh, please, I’m so over Angelus.” Buffy replied. “I’m on to better things now!”
“Okay. Then you give me your blessing for me, and for Angel?”
“So be it!” Buffy told her, as she went on her way to find Angel.
“Yep! Way to much sex in Sunnydale!” Buffy said to herself.
Chapter 6
Buffy couldn’t believe that Angel would take up with Faith. Did what they have mean nothing to him, Buffy wondered? Why would he get involved with her? Buffy wanted revenge—revenge on Angel and her family and the Scoobies—now that she was a soulless vampire. And she saw her chance when she spied Spike sitting alone under the shady tree across from Giles’ store watching everyone.
Looking as seductive as ever, Buffy strutted on over to where Spike was sitting and came on to him. Being smitten with Buffy, it didn’t much for Buffy to entice him. A-come-hither-look was about all it took and Spike was putty in Buffy’s hands.
Spike was all over Buffy—that is, until they were interrupted by Drusilla, who became possessively jealous at seeing Spike making out with Buffy.
But Buffy loved the jealousy Dru exhibited. She love the rivalry. It was better than being a goody-two-shoes vampire slayer—the chosen one. That was such a boring life—saving the world from vampires and demons. No, the soulless vampire life was exactly what Buffy needed.
“Hey, Dru. Watch this!” Buffy taunted as she kissed Spike passionately in front of her, Dru seething with rage.
A bitch fight ensued between Dru and Buffy. For a few mintues, it seemed as if Dru had the upper hand over Buffy, but strengthened with her slayer skills and now being a vampire, Buffy won out as she knocked Dru to the ground. She had the stake in her hands and was about to stake the vamp, when Spike grabbed her hand, forcing her to stop.
“Buffy, stop!” Spike told her.
“What?”Buffy said, confused.
“Please don’t kill her!” Spike pleaded, for he was still in love with Dru.
Seeing the pain in Spike’s eyes, despite being a vampire, Buffy still couldn’t hurt Spike. So she let Dru go—for Spike.
“Be gone!” Buffy told Dru. “You should thank Spike for you life. I was about to kill you.”
Dru got up and kissed Spike gratefully as Buffy watched.
“Don’t think you won, Dru!” Buffy said to herself. “This ain’t over yet!”

Chapter 1
Franco enjoyed investigating Tom Baker’s murder that he decided to become a P.I. So after he got his license to investigate crimes, he hung up a shingle outside his studio, Franco Baldwin, P.I.
As soon as he open his doors, a young lady came into his studio, out of breath.
“Are you Franco Baldwin?” the lady asks.
“Yes I am.” Franco replies.
“I need your help!” the lady says, afraid.
“What can I help you with?”
“My boyfriend is trying to kill me!”
“Have a seat!” Franco says to the scared lady, as she takes a seat across from him. “Now why do you think your boyfriend is trying to kill you?”
“I witnessed him kill someone!”
“And just who would that be?”
“I saw him kill Julian Jerome!”
“What?” Franco says in disbelief. “Julian is dead!”
“Yes. I saw it with my own eyes!”
“And you’re boyfriend is the one who did it?”
“Yes. And now he wants me dead!”
“Do you have a safe place to go?” Franco asks the lady.
“I’ve been staying at my sister’s.”
“Okay, can you still stay there?”
“Yes. So far my boyfriend hasn’t found me. I took a risk coming here.”
“Well, let me escort you back there and I’ll get on the case.”
After Franco escorted the young lady to her sister’s, he didn’t realize he was being followed. By none other, than Julian Jerome, who had faked his death so he could ruin Franco’s P.I. business. The lady was a front so Julian could make sure Franco’s business was ruined. He couldn’t have Franco messing around in his affairs and spying on him.
Chapter 2
As soon as Franco left the young lady’s home, she quickly left her home and went to Derek Wells Gallery via the text she received.
“So, did Franco fall for your story?” Julian asked the girl, who took off her disguise to reveal herself as Blair Cramer.
“Yes, I think he bought my story.” Blair said to Julian.
“Good, Ms. Cramer, because I have more for you.”
“And what would that be?” Blair asked worried.
“I want you to kill Franco!” Julian ordered.
“Kill Franco!” Blair said, confused as to what Julian wanted. “I thought that murder wasn’t in the plan?”
“Well, Franco is a loose cannon and I can’t have Franco messing around my business.” Julian explained.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Jerome, but I can’t fulfill the assignment.” Blair flat out told Julian.
“Well, Ms. Cramer, I say you will, or I will reveal your secret if you don’t! Do I make myself clear!” Julian demanded.
“Yes, Mr. Jerome.” Blair agreed. “This Franco will be terminated!”
“You may leave now!” Julian told Blair, who left Derek Wells Gallery to fulfill Julian’s request and kill Franco.
After Blair left, Julian was leary of Blair’s capability to fulfill the mission. Something about this Blair Cramer was somewhat odd. But he couldn’t figure it out.

Back at Franco’s studio, Franco walked into his studio to find Liz dressed in nothing but a towel.
“I’m sorry ma’am, but I think you’re a little underdressed.” Franco said.
“I’m sorry sir, but I really needed your help?” Liz said seductively, Franco pulled her into a kiss.
“Well, I’ll say that was just awesome.” Liz said when the duo finally came up for air.
“Thank you ma’am,” Franco said, “but I’m afraid that I’m just not that kinda guy.”
“Oh snap!” Liz said. “I was hoping for your help!”
“Well, how about you meet me at The MetroCourt at 5 pm for drinks and maybe a night out?”
“I think I will take you up on that.” Liz said. “It’s a date!”
Liz gave Franco a kiss before heading out of Franco’s studio, where she bumped into Blair, but not knowing what she had planned via Juilian’s orders.
As Liz went back to General Hospital, Blair headed inside Franco’s studio to kill Franco.
“Put ‘em up!” Blair said to Franco, who was surprised to see her.
“I’m sorry, but who are you?” Franco asked as he put his hands up in the air.
“I’m about to kill you and you ask who I am?” Blair asked.
“Yes, because I don’t think you’ll go through with it and pull that trigger.”
Blair stood holding the gun, her hand shaking to the point, that she couldn’t get her finger on the trigger to pull it. Franco reached out and grabbed the gun from Blair’s hand.
“My boss is going to kill me!” Blair said sobbing.
“Your boss ordered you to kill me?” Franco asked her.
“Yes, he doesn’t like your new P.I. business and wanted you out of commission.” Blair revealed.
“Just a guess but does your boss have the initials, JJ?”
“Yes, how did you know?” Blair asked him.
“Just a hunch.”
“I don’t know why I agreed to Mr. Jerome’s mission.” Blair revealed. “I knew the first time I saw you, I wouldn’t be able to do what he wanted.”
“The first time we. . .” Franco began to say, then it hit him what she was saying. This woman was the young girl he had found and tried to help. So it was all a set up and she was working for Julian Jerome. But why? What did Julian have on her?
“Ma’am, can I have your name?” Franco said, already in detective mode.
“It’s Blair. Blair Cramer.” Blair said.
Then it hit him. “You’re not the Blair Cramer from Llanview?”
“Yes, I am. Why?”
“Because I knew you’re boyfriend.”
“I’m sorry. My boyfriend?” Blair asked confused.
“Yes, your boyfriend. Father of your two children—Todd Manning.”
“How do you know Todd Manning?” Blair asked confused.
Chapter 3
Franco thought back to his days in the marines and to the day he met Todd Manning. He couldn’t believe the resemblance they both had. It was like they were brothers. They looked so much alike. He wondered what had happened to Todd Manning, besides marrying and having kids.
Franco remembered the day he and Todd Manning met. They pulled pranks on the drill sergeant switching places with each other to fool the drill sergeant and their comrades. It was great fun back in those days.
Franco’s reverie was interrupted by a knock on his door. When he went to answer it, he did a double take and was surprised to see Todd Manning at his front door.
“Todd?” Franco asked surprised to find him standing there.
“Franco, I need your help.” Todd pleaded.
“I’m sorry, you need my help?” Franco asked.
“Yes.”
“With what?”
“My girlfriend.” Todd told him.
“Your girlfriend?”
“Yes. She’s having an affair and I want to know with who.”
“Blair’s cheating on you?”
“Yes. She skips out on me at odd hours and she flakes on sex with me.”
“That’s your proof?”
“What else could it be?” Todd asked.
“Well, maybe she has a job?” Franco encouraged Todd to think something other, knowing what Blair tried to kill him because of Julian Jerome.
“A job?” Todd asked confused. “Why would Blair need a job? I give her everything she needs?”
“Maybe she needs more in her life than love to validate her.” Franco offered suggestions.
“My wife needs more than me?”
“Or maybe she was forced to do something she didn’t want to do?” Franco hinted.
“What would she be forced to do?”
“Kill someone.”
“Who would she kill?”
“Me.” Franco confessed.
Todd spit out the water Franco just gave him, “I’m sorry, are you saying my wife was here trying to kill you?”
“Yes.”
“Why would she kill you?”
“Because she was forced to. . .by a guy named Julian Jerome.” Franco told him.
“My guess is Julian had something on Blair.” Franco told Todd.
“What would this Julian Jerome have on Blair?”
“I don’t know but I was about to find out when you happened by.” Franco said.
“Well, find out and let me now.” Todd said. “And it was good to see you.”
“Yeah. You too.” Franco and Todd shook hands.
Well, it looked like he got his first case. Franco just didn’t think it would involve someone from his past.
Chapter 4
Franco wanted to get to work on his case for Todd Manning, but Elizabeth came to him with a more pressing matter: why Liesl Obrecht was so intrigued about her sister’s arrest.
“Franco, I know you have other cases to work on, but I really need you to find my sister, but more importantly, I need you to find out why Liesl Obrecht wanted my sister behind bars?” Liz said heartbrokenly.
“Yeah, I was just thinking about that one when I saw her at the hospital yesterday.” Franco told her.
“So you’ll find out?”
“Anything for you you.” Franco said giving her a kiss.
“Thank you.” Liz said gratefully, with a kiss. “Somehow, I knew I could count on you.”
“Well, as much as I love your kisses, I’d better get to work getting the information you want.”
Franco left Liz at the hospital and went into undercover mode to follow Liesl Obrecht. He needed to know what she was up to.
He was shocked to find that he had followed Liesl to Finn’s hotel suite at The MetroCourt.
“What was she doing at Finn’s suite?” Franco said to himself as he watched her sneak into Finn’s suite.
But Franco got the shock of his life when he accidentally overheard a conversation between Nathan and Amy talking about his role in “Ask Man Landers.”
“Nathan is ‘Man Landers’?” Franco whispered to himself. “Shocking!”
That news would have to wait for now! Obrecht was more pressing than Nathan being ‘Man Landers.’ He had to keep an eye on Liesl and find out what she was up to. He waited for Liesl to leave Finn’s suite, then got his credit card and sneaked inside to see what Liesl was doing in Finn’s suite.
He was shocked to find a note lying on Finn’s table that read:
Finn,
How does it feel. . .to lose what you love most!”
Liesl Obrecht
So, Hayden wasn’t her target! Finn was. Liesl wanted to hurt Finn by getting to Hayden!
Franco pulled his cell from his pocket and pushed Liz’s button, “Liz, I found what Obrecht was up to and you’re not going to like it.”

“We won’t let you down.” Hattie and Bonnie told Anjelica said with crossed fingers behind their backs as Anjelica left the ladies to do their part in her scheme.
Meanwhile, at Shady Acres, Marlena woke from her drug-induced coma to find herself trapped in a strait jacket inside a padded cell.
“Oh, no!” Marlena said to herself. “It can’t be? Not again?”
As Marlena struggled to free herself from the strait jacket, the orderly brought in her meal.
“Well, good evening, Ms. Adams.” The orderly said to Marlena, placing Hattie’s dinner tray next to Marlena. “I hope you’re hungry.”
“You have to listen to me.” Marlena pleaded. “I’m not Hattie.”
But Marlena’s pleas fell on the orderly’s deaf ears as he locked the cell, leaving Marlena alone to eat her dinner.
Back in Salem, Bonnie, impersonating Adrienne, was waiting for Lucas at the Brady Pub after she text Lucas to meet her.
“Hey, babe.” Lucas said to “Adrienne”, who pulled away from his kiss.
“Please, Lucas, don’t do that.” Bonnie said.
“What’s wrong?” Lucas said, concerned.
“I’m sorry, Lucas, but it’s over.” Bonnie told a crushed Lucas.
“What? I don’t understand?”
“I just don’t love you anymore.” Bonnie told him.
“But we made love this morning?” Lucas said, obviously confused by Adrienne’s sudden change of heart.
“I’m still in love with Justin.” Bonnie told him, as she walked out of the Brady Pub, leaving Lucas bewildered.
But Brady came in to get some of Caroline’s chowder and noticed Lucas sitting alone.
“Lucas, I thought you were meeting Adrienne?” Brady asked him.
“Yeah, the funniest thing.” Lucas lashed out at him. “Adrienne called off our relationship!”
“What? I don’t understand?”
“Yeah, you and me both?”
“Well, I have my own troubles to deal with.” Brady said.
“Brady, here is your chowder.” Joey said, bringing his order to him.
“Thank you, Joey.” Brady thanked him as he gave Joey the money to pay for the chowder.
“Well, Lucas, if I can do anything, let me know.” Brady told him as he headed back to the Kiriakis mansion.
Lucas left the Brady Pub as soon as Brady left and headed straight for Dario’s Club. It was a good night to fall off the wagon.

Chapter 2

John was waiting for Marlena at the courtyard in Horton Square where Marlena text him saying they needed to talk. She looked exquisite as always when Hattie arrived at Horton Square and headed for John to do her part in breaking up with John.
“Doc!” John said, as he tried to kiss her on the lips, but she shushed him away.
“John, we need to talk.” Hattie told him.
“Yeah. What about?” John questioned her.
“I want a divorce!” Hattie came out and told him.
“Doc, we’re not married.” John reminded her.
“Oh, right.” Hattie corrected herself after John reminded her.
“Doc, I don’t understand?”
“I’ve just lost interest in this relationship.” Hattie told him. “I’ve moved onto better things.”
“You’ve moved on to better things?” John said, confused. “What ‘better things’ have you moved on with?”
“Since you’ve been gone, I’ve found purpose in being an independent woman.” Hattie said. “I no longer need you in my life to validate me.”
“I’m sorry, ‘validate you?’” John said, obviously confused by Marlena’s behavior.
“Your absence from Salem has gave me new purpose. It’s over and that’s that.” Hattie said. “Now, if you don’t mind, I must go.”
Hattie left John alone in Horton Square bewildered after their discussion. Paul happened along and saw his father and sat down next to him.
“Dad, you looked, well, confused.” Paul asked him.
“Yeah, son. I am.”
“What happened?”
“Marlena just ended things between us.”
“What? But you two were on the mend and working things out?”
“Yeah, I thought so? But now, I’m not so sure?”
“What happened, if I may ask?”
“I don’t know, but if Marlena wants it over, then so be it.” John told Paul, and walked away.
Paul was confused. First Adrienne breaks up with Lucas. And now Marlena has left John. Something was up in Salem. And Paul intended to get to the bottom of it.
