Introductory note: on Buffyforums, there's a season three rewatch and I'm writing a bit about Dead Man's Party. To try to get into the POVs of the Sunnydale characters, I wrote this.

I'm doing well in general, but I'm still fragile -- so if you don't like it, well, you know, be gentle! I include this disclaimer (and would prefer not to link to *this* version, though linking to the AO3 version is okay should I post it there) because I know how divisive this episode is, even if I'm only talking about it glancingly.

The POV style is somewhat inspired by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy's excellent Building Character, which is also of a much higher level of artistry and is strongly recommended.

Disclaimer: Not mine.
Takes place: Sunnydale, around the first week of school in s3, before "Dead Man's Party."
Characters: Giles, Xander, Willow, Cordelia, Joyce.
Word count: ~2500

TW: long discussion of death and insanity. 

Spoiler warning for BtVS season five.

Notes: Somewhat inspired by an exchange with lostboy_lj yesterday.

However, some of this is somewhat emotional, RL-y stuff which I found out about today.  None of it is specific enough that I feel like I’m sharing anything too personal.  OTOH, it is emotional enough that I am really not guaranteeing I reply to all comments.  It is what it is.  For the record, it’s my grandmother and it’s a long story that I don’t want to get into, thanks (I am mostly saying this so people don't think it's about me or my mother or my non-existent siblings -- there are two generations removed; I'm okay).

Since this is partly actually not about the show, it is very possible that I am wrong.  I’m almost tempted not to allow comments on the entry, but, well, yeah, comments are fine, but keep in mind what I said.

I also didn't edit this or anything, so keep that in mind as well.

Here's the thing about season five. )
