there is always a crack in the glass [behindaglass]

She stood over the ruins of the city with the wind whipping through her hair. Buffy took in a deep breath and closed her eyes, imagining a gust of wind to push her over the edge. It was times like this that brought her back to a night and a battle so many years ago. A battle that surrendered her to heaven and an end to the world she knew.

After moments on contemplation Buffy moved from her perch and headed towards the open window of her bedroom. There was something about the cool night air in a ruined city. It smelled like stillness, death, sorrow; things Buffy had been familiar with since she turned fifteen and a man told her she had a destiny.

In a moment of weakness, or perhaps it was strength, she moved to her dresser. The faces of her friends, lovers, family stared back at her. Tiny reflective surfaces showed through a picture of her and the scooby's. A bitter smile slid onto her lips and she reached up to trace her sister's face.

When her fingertip slipped to the edge of the dirty beveled mirror behind the picture she felt a icy-hot feeling run down her arm, sucking her into a blissful ignorance.

The only thought that cross Buffy's mind as she was pulled behind the mirror was ... heaven. It was a stark, cold, reality to open her eyes and find herself not bathed in the white warm glow she could barely grasp now. Instead she found herself on a cold stone floor.

TEN things about Buffy Summers

See there was this thing happening. This portal was underfoot and I slipped inside it and when I woke up with a bloody head, bumpy bloody and absolutely no idea where I was. It sort of looked like LA, but somethings were way different than when I'd just woken up. Also, I don't know who I am. Weird huh? I know Los Angeles is Los Angeles but I don't know my own name.

TEN things about Buffy Summers whoever I am

1. I don't know my own name.
2. I'm really strong.
3. This place is not the LA I came from.
4. How I know that exactly I'm not sure.
5. I have scars and I don't know how I got them.
6. I have killer taste in boots, have you seen these things?
7. I have no idea what the tattoo's on my body mean but I think they look pretty cool.
8. I feel scared but it seems kind of ... like an everyday thing for me. Which is odd.
9. This thing attacked me in the park and I kicked it's ass.
10. Blood does not come out of white very easily.

ooc: So yes, I'm bringing Buffy back ONCE again. But she's from an alternate world. Probably the one that has no shrimp. Heh. Right now she has amnesia, so she doesn't know slayers or Dawn or anyone. Eventually she'll start to remember her world - but it's gonna be way different from Canon. So it should be fun.

[015] out of the fire into the storm

[When Buffy woke up she had a coppery taste in her mouth. It took her ages to figure out what had happen and even longer to convince Clark she was human. He let her out of whatever crazy place she'd been held and she immediately headed to her room with her head down. She had this whole apology thing she needed to do. She'd heard of people going on losses in the Castle even seen Xanders double the trouble thing but she never really thought it would hit her. All the memories and the taste of blood was fresh and nauseating. Of course When Buffy got to her room she realized her journal was still in Angel's. She weighed wanting to have an apology out there with how much Angel probably hated her right now. The truth was she sort of wanted his comfort even if she didn't deserve it so she headed down to his room and slipped in. He was sleeping, thankfully, and since she'd mastered stealth (and probably since he was still healing from her nearly killing him) he didn't wake up. She found her journal on the desk and curled up in the comfy chair Angel had in his room. She found a pen and took a deep breath.]

[Buffy takes another breath and bites the edge of the pen in nervousness before she puts it back down on the page.]

Dear Castle Residents,
It's Buffy Summers here, I um .... I'm back to normal. I was on a loss that turned me into a vampire. See normally I'm a vampire slayer. I kill them back home. Well okay, except Angel and Spike but there are good reasons for those. Though technically I did kill Angel once but okay, so not important here. I don't even know the people I hurt and I'm so sorry. I know that doesn't make up for anything and you are free to hate me for the rest of my stay here but I am sorry. I couldn't control myself. It wasn't really me. God, that sounds like an excuse. I would like to make apologies in person to those of you willing to listen. And obviously, I'd like to thank those people that stopped me from really hurting anyone and I'm sorry for any damage I caused you as well. I'm completely human now, I swear. Clark made me prove it like three times over so if you need reassurance you can ask the caped crusader.

Oh. And don't blame Angel, he was just worried about me and what I'd do as a vampire if I got trapped. You see vampires in my world are totally demons but they remember the life of the person. I was a good guy so if given a chance, the kind of evil I could have done could have been a lot worse than it was.

[Buffy closes her journal and wipes at her eyes. She plans on going back to her room but she sort of starts to watch Angel sleep and eventually she doses off, curled in his chair.]

[014] he's so easy sometimes

[It's not much of a chore to get by Angel when he's all fluffy feeling about getting his girl back. He thinks this is a loss but Vampire Buffy is sure this is permanent and she's just getting started. All it took was a little sweet talking and a lot of Slayer Vampire strength to get out of the chains that Angel put her in. He wasn't counting on how much extra strength she had because in the end after having to, ugh, have pigs blood, she was mostly healed from all her fights thanks to Angel's need to keep her fed; she'll have to thank him later. It was easy to shove him into the sink and yank free of the chains. He made it far too easy. Hopefully his head wound will heal so she can play with him later but she had other fish to fry. Plans to get at Faith and Spike maybe play with some old friends.]

Chains should be much more fun. [She says it to herself as she makes her way through the Castle to find someone else to feed on. She wants a kill, dammit.]

[013] it's time for the blood to flow

[Buffy's cranky. Really cranky. Too many people to catch her and ruin her meals in this place. She keeps getting interrupted and hasn't even made one kill yet. She's left presents for Angel, clothes here and there. She's done what she can to hide her tracks. She's just looking for more food, the last one had been tiny and she was hungry. Again. Always hungry like this.]

ooc: this is for my tuesday peeps. Yuan, Run in with Faith, and anyone else can come into this post whose signed up to be a victim, just ping me on the ooc post so i can throw up a sub comment. Backtagging is welcome.

[011] I am what I am, i do what I want

I've been a little silent. Working mostly and leaving my journal in my room while I spend time with Angel. The whole dino adventure was interesting but let's just say I was distracted by Angel being human, you can't really blame me. At all. So don't go looking at me with eyes like that, people. You know what eyes I'm talking about!

The cruise was an ... interesting change of pace from what I was doing in town; which was construction work. It's a great work out and Xander's a really good boss but it's kind of monotonous. You know?

I'm afraid to ask what's next and I know it was insane with the dino's but ... honestly. To me that cruise was a bit of a gift. Having Angel human for even a day an hour. It's ... I can't put it into words.

And okay, I'll stop being gushy, girly and mushy.
