Thanks leni_ba for posting a challenge!

A Ship, The Black Freighter

"Buffy?"

"Yeah?"

"...Nothing."


For years, Faith knew exactly where she missed her shot. The day after Buffy killed Gwendolyn Post, and dropped by Faith's motel room to talk. There were about five seconds when Faith could have asked her to stay. They might have talked, fought, or... whatever. She could have stayed, or left town, done anything. But the moment passed, that was that, and then it was always too late.

Yet now she's driving a bus full of Slayers across the desert as the sun rises.

"What are you smiling about?" Dawn asks.

Faith, unaware that she was; "...Nothing."

A very nice look into Faith's mind. Now that she's ready, let's hope Buffy is, too. Great work.

Very nice! I'm about to start rewatching Season 3 for the first time in several years. Faith had her issues, but I think the people around her failed her badly.

Thank you! I think there were issues on both sides, but I love the fact that Faith got a second chance...

Well done! Who didn't think something was going on with the two Slayers in Season 3 or was about to?

Thanks! I know I always thought so. :)

Faith really just always wanted to be a true part if the gang, didn't she?

Thanks!

I'm not sure that's all of it, but there was a lot that went wrong in s3 that could have gone right...
