Let Me In (1/10)

Warning: this is not a new fanfic! It's actually the first one I ever wrote. It's very long and definitely not my best work, but I like having all of my stories stashed on at least two different sites so I don't have to worry about losing them, and I thought it was time to get this monster put away.

I'm going to see if I can backdate the next nine sections as I post them so that they don't flood your friends page. On the other hand, if I don't figure out a more efficient way to format, it might take me a couple weeks just to work up the motivation to do this again.

Rereading it was fun, though, if only because I can see where I've improved and maybe where I've lost a little of my initial gusto. It's pretty clear at some points that I was steering the characters into doing what I wanted them to do, or writing Buffy's relationship with Angel as I would have acted if I were Buffy. Never did figure out what to do with Anya. I kinda love my OCs in this, though.

Title: Let Me In
Author: Kairos
Rating: PG-13 (violence, some language, some sex)
Wordcount: Roughly 145,000 total
Disclaimer: Everything belongs to Boss Whedon and his merry band of Mutant Enemies. There are also a few characters of my own creation; you'll know them when you see them.
Warnings: May contain character death and pairings you don't favor. Read at your own risk.
Setting/Spoilers: Takes place near the beginning of Season 5 BtVS, Season 2 AtS. However, it drifts off canon earlier, when Oz returns to Sunnydale in "New Moon Rising". In my version of events, Willow's friendship with Tara was platonic, and it never triggered the chain of events that led to Oz leaving again, so here he is. Also, no Dawn, as she and Glory are part of a plot that doesn't happen here.
Reviews: Since this is just for archiving purposes, I’m not asking for any response to it. Naturally, I wouldn’t stop you if you felt like it.
