Sunnydale After Dark
Summary:

A few years into the future, Dawn learns that Buffy & Spike are thinking about ending their relationship and she believes they’d make a big mistake, so she stages a small ‘intervention,’ hoping to help them see that they simply hit a bump in the road and they can overcome this one and many others. Although, the way she goes about it is rather unusual.

Drabble fic with little plot and a good trip down memory lane.

Story Notes:

This story was born mainly from my desire to write more drabbles and it is NOT related to the current drabble event on EF
Also, note that I’m NOT following a pre-made prompt list, I made up all the words that are being used as prompts.

The story is ideally set during the “quiet year” between comic seasons S11 and S12, where (as revealed in S12) Buffy and Spike broke up. Before that happens, Dawn sits them down and tries to make them come to their senses. Will she succeed?
NO comic knowledge required, I simply borrowed the time frame + the event of their break-up and decided to play with them. 
The inspiration to use alphabet letters comes from violettathepiratequeen & honeygirl51885's drabble series “Two Odds Make an Even,” check it out!
