It’s a Vamp Buffy prompt also a Buffy/Spike ship, plus Willow/Wesley, and Angel/Faith set after ‘Chosen’ and ‘Not Fade Away.’ Wesley, Angel, and Spike all survived the fight with the Dragon, but not Gunn and Illyria. They are dead and now will head to Cleveland to track down Buffy and she’s living with Faith and Willow in an apartment, but she’s not currently there. Instead, the Council resurrected Kralik, the Vampire Quentin Travers and Giles tried to have her fight on her 18th birthday (See the episode ‘Helpless’). Buffy was captured and had been missing for a year without her powers because a Demon casted a spell over Giles to make him Ripper. He was bent on hurting the Slayer for making him a pancy White Hat. Then, he took away her powers and found a place to hide them. He injected her with H3, the highest level of the drug and now, the deranged demon is back and he got his way in turning and torturing her. Spike doesn’t know that she’s dead, a creature of the night yet. Not until he shows up in Cleveland. The problem is can he ever face Giles without throttling him?
They are dead and now will head to Cleveland to track down Buffy and she’s living with Faith and Willow in an apartment, but she’s not currently there. Instead, the Council resurrected Kralik, the Vampire Quentin Travers and Giles tried to have her fight on her 18th birthday. “Spike and Angel are weak Vampires, not fit to be demons.”
Buffy was captured and had been missing for a year without her powers because a Demon casted a spell over Giles to make him Ripper. He was bent on hurting the Slayer for making him a pancy White Hat. Then, he took away her powers and found a place to hide them. He injected her with H3, the highest level of the drug and now, the deranged psycho serial killer is back. Spike is on his way, but his expression will soon turn into fear for her life.
Buffy stared at them in hurt and anger as the Vampire dragged the knife down her thighs and her clothes had been torn in all places. Kralik played for a few minutes before ripping it out harshly. She gasped as the blood gushed through. Like water through whine, he sucked it up with his blunt teeth. He snarled and undid his fly.
20 minutes of relentlessly pounding into her and she was sore from starvation and energy loss that she could barely make out the small touch of Sunlight patching through the roof. She was shackled to the wall, the urge to feed was killing her. She had been like this for days mentally exhausted. The urge to escape was screaming at her.
Ripper sat back casually observing watching. He had them all under his thrall, the entire new Council, his bulge was growing as is his lust.
She was desirable, his young charge and could he really blame her anymore for being obsessed…? Someone say like Angelus…? He chuckled. Rupert was a bitter old man who held a grudge against evil, but the hypocrisy made him laugh? Evil had been in this plane for generations and if you didn’t know how to have fun, why waste their time…? He walked up to her and gave her a cold look. “You were always in the way of things… Things you have no business interfering with! But times pass and yours’ will too!”
“In fact, it has,” he smiled, reminding her of what she had become, in a way enjoying her suffering every way he could.
“You know, you’re better when you fight…?” “Why don’t you test it,” she hissed. The syringe had really stung like a bitch. She frowned at how j-e-l-l-o they felt.
“Bring me back my power and test it!”
Kralik gazed at the man curiously. Why was he so angry? There was no good in this man. Ripper got up and placed something in his hand, a cross necklace and Holy Water.
“Dip the cross into the paraphernalia…”
“What is that you want from me…? It just seems you are very cruel for a Watcher…?”
“I am definitely not that boring Git!” He placed the pendant in her mouth.
It was sizzling hot and Buffy started screaming.
On the jet, Spike sat with a vacant expression as he stared from the window, the sun- proofed window of Wolfram and Hart’s accommodations. “Look brood boy, I do love Buffy!”
“Then why did you say, ‘no you don’t but thanks for saying it’,” he pointed out.
“I want her to live you idiot, not die in the Hell mouth with a monster that doesn’t deserve her!”
“That wasn’t an excuse Spike…!”
“The point is, it isn’t about what I want…”
“You aren’t a monster Spike, not anymore…”
He shook his head. “Do you know ‘how’ I got the soul…? It wasn’t because I was the Champion, but what I tried to do to her…”
“I was attempting to teach her a lesson…”
“What are you talking about,” he warned. Spike’s blue eyes turned sad.
“I almost raped her…”
Angel was up in a second, grabbing him around the throat. “I knew it, you son- of- a- bitch!”
Rupert was a fool! Evil was great! It was power. It was fun. It was o*** and brandies and Janus Roman Statues. Years of fighting wasn’t worth a dime saving miserable tools who wanted it as much as he did, just couldn’t let it out.
‘What a bloody sacrifice,’ he thought sarcastically stretching as he watched her sobbing the physical contradiction.
‘I think I’ll give my old buddy a contact,’ a smile lit up as he thought about the chaos that is Ethan Rayne. They used to cause terror everywhere they went as Gay lovers.
“How did it happen,” he asked excitedly. “Well, I woke up an ancient demon from its long nap, and wham, I am all better!”
“I didn’t know an ancient demon can be a cure to your brief mental illness…?” “I know, I must be insane trying to help those bratty insolent kids!”
“That you are, but I’m glad you’re out of the demon fighting business.”
“True and I’ll never get back into it if I have any say about it!”
“I hate being good, it gives me the shivers!”
“Welcome to your revival, RIP!”
Buffy had realized she was body switched with her younger self.
She’s in her 18 yr. old body, the night she first met the Vampire and the Slayer test.
She was cold and isolated and unclean. It was just cruel, leaving her craving but not feeding.
Oh, the Pig’s blood had been almost like candy, but it was only junk food and not hamburger, hamburger with neck sausage.
The depraved animal wanted someone bad.
This wasn’t living at all, but just a state of being.
Angelus was screaming inside his mind. He had to loosen his grip and dump the blond back into his seat.
“Why Spike!?!” He began detailing last year like it was some gruesome Friday the 13th marathon that popped into their little vcr. Angel sighed. “You always did take things too personal Will, even when you were alive…”
“I know and I am a sodding jerk!”
As Angel lamented in his loneliness, Willow was visiting D’Hoffryn about the spell that went wrong and turned Buffy into a vampire forever.
“Ah, Willow, how is my little protégé?” D’Hoffryn asked slyly.
“You knew it wouldn’t work!” Willow raged at him.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about?” D’Hoffryn said in his innocent voice, knowing she was right. D’Hoffryn gave Willow a fake spell knowing it would keep Buffy a vampire forever in her 18-year-old body so his mission would live on. And he used Willow as the vessel to get it done. Now he would be the most powerful demon in Sunnydale!
“You promised it would bring Buffy back!” Willow continued her rage.
“”Well, did I lie?!”
“But she’s a vampire! The very thing she was trained to kill!”
“Well, you did something wrong, Willow!” D’Hoffryn explained. “You never could do anything right when it came to casting spells!”
“You’re wrong!” Willow said before leaving D’Hoffryn to his ritual.
After Willow left, D’Hoffryn raised the scepter to the sky as thunder and lightning flashed. He rejoiced at being the most powerful demon. He would rule the world thanks to Willow’s greed to bring Buffy back. They would all follow him!
Willow was sulking in her apartment in Cleveland when Spike and Angelus showed hoping to find Buffy.
“Willow, why are you crying?” Angelus asked with concern.
“It’s nothing.” Willow replied, not wanting to tell them about the spell she cast to bring Buffy back and how D’Hoffryn tricked her into making Buffy a vampire demon that would make him the most powerful in all of Sunnydale.
“Well, is Buffy here?” Spike asked.
“No, Buffy isn’t here.” Willow told them. “She hasn’t been here for the last week.”
“Funny. We got the impression she was here with you?” Angelus asked.
“Well, she was…for like a day…then she split.” Willow told them.
“She just split?” Spike asked disbelievingly.
“Yeah. Looks that way.” Willow said, with uncaring emotion. “No note or anything to say she was going either.”
“It doesn’t sound like Buffy.” Spike told her.
“Yeah, Buffy hasn’t been herself lately.” Willow interjected.
“Well, we need to find her. Sunnydale’s gone to pot since Buffy left.” Angelus said.
“You’re not telling me anything I don’t already know.” Willow replied.
“What? How do you know?” Spike asked.
“Uh, Wesley called me.” Willow lied.
“Wesley, uh? Wesley hasn’t been seen since Buffy left.” Angelus said, not believing her story.
“Yeah. I guess Wesley needed to tell me, since. . .” Willow stopped short before she spilt the beans about Buffy.
“Okay.” Angelus said. “If you do see Buffy, will you tell Spike or me?”
“Yeah. Sure.” Willow agreed.
Spike and Angelus left Willow and went in search of Buffy, unbeknownst to them where or what Buffy was.
Back at the dungeon where the Ripper had Buffy held hostage. Buffy was looking for a way to escape. She wished she had her slayer powers so she could kill this monster that Giles had become.
As Ripper took pleasure in tormenting Buffy, he started kissing her, making her sick to her stomach.
“Giles!” Buffy cried out.
But Ripper didn’t listen to Buffy’s pleas, as he began to kiss her on the lips and molesting her.
Buffy couldn’t believe it had come to this…Giles, a man she had come to idolize, had turned into a monster. He was now the Ripper, a monster……..
There was nothing Buffy could do, what with her slayers powers gone, thanks to D’Hoffryn…..
She couldn’t let Giles, er, Ripper violate her….
But just as it looked like Ripper was going to rape her, in came in Spike and Angel and pushed Giles off Buffy.
As Buffy and Spike looked on from the side of the room, Angel and Ripper got into a fight. It went on for about 20 minutes, the two men busting each other to pieces. Just when it looked as if Ripper had the goods on Angel, Angel sucker punched Giles/Ripper and knocked him out cold.
Buffy just looked at Ripper. She wanted him dead…and just as she was about to take him out with a stake through his heart, flashes of Giles ran through Buffy’s mind and she knew she couldn’t kill him.
“No, Angel.” Buffy said, when Buffy failed to take Giles’ life. “Let’s take him back to the store and hope we can bring him back?”
As Angel carried an unconscious Ripper/Giles on his back, Spike carried Buffy in his arms back to her and Willow and Faith’s apartment.
Angel dropped Ripper/Giles on the bed in Spike’s grotto while Spike tended to Buffy. All Spike wanted to do was beat the s*** out of Ripper/Giles. But Angel stopped him dead in his tracks.
“We need to find a way to bring him back.” Angel tried to reason with an irate Spike.
But Spike needed some air. He had to get out of there before he lost it on Ripper/Giles.
Buffy stirred in her sleep and Angel went to her.
“Giles.” Buffy moaned, but didn’t wake up.
Angel was glad as he didn’t know how to tell Buffy about Giles/Ripper.
While Spike was getting some air, Willow happened along.
“She’s okay, but…..” Spike began but not able to repeat what Ripper/Giles did to her.
“I mean. . .”
“What are you trying to say, Willow?”
“Buffy’s been turned.” Willow said, but hated to tell him.
“No! That’s impossible!” Spike spat out.
“I’m afraid it is. Kralik tricked me into making a spell, telling me it would help Buffy.”
“Kralik is behind this?”
“Yes. He wanted Buffy as his childe.”
Spike couldn’t take it anymore. First Ripper/Giles tortures Buffy—now Kralik has Willow create a spell that turns Buffy into a vampire?
Someone was going to pay……
Spike took off before Willow could stop him.
While Angel worked to find a way to bring back Giles, Spike was with Buffy in the grotto. It was best he wasn’t with Angel and Giles/Ripper, as he didn’t know if he could keep his cool around the man who tortured Buffy.
Yes, it was best he was in the grotto with Buffy…
Buffy woke to Spike comforting her, knowing she was a vampire. As he held Buffy in his arms, Buffy’s scent was appealing to him and he impulsively kissed her. Enjoying the moment between them, Buffy didn’t resist.
It felt good to be in Spike’s arms…but it also felt wrong…as if she were betraying someone……
Just then, Ripper/Giles showed up at the grotto wanting revenge on Spike and Buffy. Ripper had escaped Angel’s clutches and made his way to the grotto looking for Spike and Buffy.
Angel, on the other hand, was tied to a chair when Ripper/Giles made his escape. He fervently worked to release himself of the chains used to tie him to the chains. But even his vampire strength wasn’t enough to unbind the chains.
Then Cordy happened along….
“Cordy, I need help.” Angel pleaded with her.
“What? You need my help?” Cordy taunted him.
“Please? Ripper is out for blood and ready to seek revenge on Spike and Buffy.”
“I’m sorry, did you say you needed my help?” Cordy continued her taunting of Angel. She debated helping Angel after the way he left her for Faith.
“Why should I help you?”
“Okay, then untie me so I can save Buffy and Spike from Ripper.”
“Why don’t you call Faith, since she is who you need?” Cordy said before leaving Angel in the lurch to fend for himself.
Just as Cordy left Angel, Faith suddenly appeared to help Angel out of his jam. After he was free, Faith and Angel bolted to find Ripper before he got to Spike and Buffy.
It was too late for Spike and Buffy when Angel and Faith found them unconscious at the grotto. Ripper had already did his worst to pair of lovers.
But a few minutes later, Buffy stirred as she started coming to from her unconsciousness.
“Wh-what happened?” Buffy asked groggily.
“Ripper got to you…and Spike.” Angel tended to Buffy’s injuries.
“I remember kissing Spike….then…it all went black….” Buffy said, as Spike finally came to.
“We need to find Ripper and get him back to Giles before he does more damage.” Faith told them.
“You’re right.” Angel agreed, but Spike and Buffy were reluctant to help Ripper/Giles.
The four of them headed back to Giles’ store so they could come up with a plan to bring Giles back to his old self and rid him of the Ripper.
But TPB had other plans in store for Ripper/ Giles…..
