The Dark Side of Bliss


Author: Sue
Summary: Buffy is pregnant and her bond with Giles, her happiness her very life is in danger because of the Council. In the meantime Willow and Spike have to face the consequences of the choices they have made, will their relationship suffer because of them? There are old and new faces in town and someone trying to make amends and atone.
Rating: NC17 (for violence, sex and my potty mouth), A, *AU* (I can’t stress it enough!)
Pairings: Buffy/Giles, Willow/Spike, Xander/Anya, Spike/Buffy (it’s not what you think…I promise!) a hint of Wesley/Faith
Setting: It's my universe ...the one of I Still Miss the Sun. Set after the fourth Riley and no Dawn (as for Tara…well…read and see). The story won’t probably make a lot of sense if you haven’t read the first two, since they’re *heavily* linked, and I mean it. There are references, lots of them, to things happened in the first two stories. The series so far: I Still Miss The Sun

Feedback: Please...please, please...but no flames...they're not healthy. Constructive criticism on the other hand is welcomed and needed, especially since this fan-fiction hasn’t been betaed.;-)
Note: It took me a long time to finish writing this story, more than three years. I suffered from a severe case of writer’s block. When I had started writing this fan-fiction, Buffy hadn’t died, Giles was still Giles, Spike was still a character I respected (I still love him, but respect? That went away when Destiny aired…but that’s another story!). I want to tell a few things, though: when I’ve started writing this fan-fiction, Spike was still sans soul. I had thought about the whole fan-fiction and written most of the scenes in the lighthouse *before* Buffy’s sixth and seventh season, or Angel’s third, fourth and fifth season (I hadn’t seen the White Room). So any similarity to things you have seen on both shows is totally unintentional on my part.
