Sunnydale After Dark
Summary: Updated!

An anthology of Spuffy Snippets, Vol. 2

Complete at 100 chapters. Previous anthology: “What the Drabble? Vol. 1” 
Mostly missing scenes from various seasons and post-series, all in drabble and multi-drabble format, sometimes canon-divergent, hence the “Alternate Reality” tag. S
ince I’m following weekly prompts from various active drabble communities, Categories, Genres, and Warnings might be updated accordingly as the anthology grows.

Story Notes:

All the drabbles in this story were originally posted to some multi-fandom drabble communities I joined on Dreamwidth. 
You can find a Drabble Index on my Dreamwidth journal, HERE.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Drabble length

With the exception of 100words that only allows 100-word drabbles, the communities from where I get the prompts are open to “multiple drabble” formats. Specifically, drabble_zone also accepts double and triple drabbles (200 or 300 words), while anythingdrabble accepts multiples up to 500 words, emotion100 allows multiples without a max length, and fan_flashworks welcomes any length and format (but I'm sticking to drabbles). 

So, some of the chapters will be multiple drabbles. I did however write them respecting the original drabble format, in a way; for instance, a 300-word chapter will be made of three separate 100-word paragraphs, and so on. 

All prompts and communities that issued them will be listed in the end notes.
