Okay, so I realized one day that there is a serious lack of 1950's Buffy fanfic out there. If you haven't read Milkshakes and Motorcycles by Grief Counseling, I highly recommend it. This will be totally different from that. For one, it's not all-human, well, not technically. But, I promise it will be super fun.
