Story Notes: If you have not read The Butcher, I strongly suggest that you do. This story will still make sense if you dive into it blind, but without all the backstory it might not be as fulfilling of a read. Please read the warning tags if you're easily triggered.
If you HAVE read The Butcher, then I don't really need to warn you. You should know what subjects are going to pop up since we're diving into Buffy's POV.
