jade_starlight, here's your gift! I'm sorry it's so late, but technically in my time zone, it's still Halloween. ;)
Almost everything on your Gimme, Gimme! list was on my I'm Allergic or technologically illiterate lists, so I didn't have a whole lot of choices. Hope you like what I eventually came up with. It's the first full fic I've written in at least a year and I've got my fingers crossed that I haven't lost my touch. LOL Hope you had a happy Halloween!
Title: "Ghosts of the Past"
Author: jadedcynic (Bri)
Disclaimer: They're Joss's, not mine. If you didn't already know that, raise your hand so I can come over and bitch-slap you for being so stupid.
Characters/Pairings: Faith, Wes
Timeline: One year after Connor's birth, but an alternate ending from there. No Holtz, no portals, no Quortoth.
Rating: PG-13 for a few scattered obscenities (not many this time around, which is unusual for a Faith fic from me) and some insinuations.
Summary: They say that those who don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it...
Author's Notes: First off, fair warning. This is not a Fred-friendly fic. (Don't get me wrong, I like Fred, but I'm not kind to her in the few parts she shows up in.) Secondly, all references to India (pronounced In-dee-uh, emphasis on second syllable) Cohen and Christopher "Kit" Bothwell come from the BtVS novel "The Book of Fours." Lastly, this is completely un-beta'd. All mistakes are mine.
