Sunnydale After Dark

Set in S6, at the beginning of episode 6x03 “After Life.”
Inspired by JSBirsa’s stunning drawing of Buffy with a wing tattoo, which you can find HERE.

Description (by JSBirsa on Discord) used as prompt:
“I imagine it being an imprint of the wings she got in heaven and Dawn seeing it while she cleans Buffy right after the resurrection and instantly knowing where she was and then yelling at the Scoobies about what they’ve done.”

Story Notes:

This is not my usual fluffy story.

It’s not necessarily too dark, but it’s not “all hugs and puppies” either.

I tried to follow Buffy’s thoughts and feelings after her resurrection. 

Tagged as “Episode Rewrite” because things are bound to go differently once Dawn discovers the truth. I won’t cover the whole episode, though. Just up until the arrival of the Scoobies, give or take.
