She'd returned to him, but her eyes were void of life.

How long would it be, he wondered, before she laid her arms down, defeated, letting death take her again.

He knew she remembered the words of the First Slayer. Death was her gift to the world, the tool she used to save it. It was her gift to Dawn, securing her dreams of the future. And the peace that followed was a gift to Buffy herself.

The battles were supposed to have ended. What better gift?

But death to Giles, in all its perplexing, empty versions, was anything but.

What comlodge said - lovely. (Short pieces that carry a lot of emotional weight send me over the moon.)

BTW - your icon is also one of the loveliest I've ever seen. That image of SMG is GORGEOUS (do you know what episode that's from?)

Thank you! I cannot remember. I do know it was made by aka_elle, the founder of the wonderful allthejellies community... one of my favorite icons ever!
