Story Notes: Each chapter can stand on its own. Specific warnings and rating may vary (though they will probably be in the R or below range, if necessary I'll bump the rating for the whole fic up but right now they're all R or below), but blanket warning for medical torture/experimentation, blood and gore, Stockholm Syndrome, and dark!Buffy, throughout all of these (I've tagged all relevant warnings, but not all will apply to every chapter). I will list specifics in the chapter notes, so readers can skip specific chapters that might trigger them.
These are sorta missing scenes or whatever I come up with, I'll update whenever inspiration strikes. I really recommend reading Night Shift and Turning the Tables first, as they provide much needed context. 
As with all my work, I portray most of the characters as sympathetic (though a few have been turned dark/made into villains here for plot purposes), and you won't find any bashing here.

This one takes place probably some time between Night Shift and Turning the Tables, or maybe later on in Night Shift. 

Rating in the R range. 

Specific warnings: blood, drugging, just a touch of implied Stockholm Syndrome, some adult language.

This takes before the first story in the series. Just how did Buffy end up working for the Initiative? This is... part of that backstory. 


This one is pretty tame! A bit of mild violence and some Initiative "shop talk" but all very very tame, especially compared to some of the other installments.
