Revisiting BTVS many years later, and discovering the absolute wealth of stellar Spuffy storytelling has been such a great way to reconnect with the show and helped me as a writer to gain a deeper understanding of characters I grew up with and still hold close.

Summary: Two strangers take a chance on a dating app designed for 'no frills casual hookups', leading to a less than stellar encounter. The one-night stand quickly spirals into a different situation when the so-called 'Storm of the Century' effectively traps the pair together in the same New York apartment. Forced co-habitation after the world's most awkward night becomes an exercise in restraint, as the two attempt to play nice and discover an online connection and meaningless hookup might actually lead to something more.
