Summary: Death isn't always the end. Sometimes you get sequels.
Timeline: Set shortly after “A New Man” in BtVS, and well after “Hero” in Ats
Warning: Blatant use of deus ex machina
Disclaimer: I own nothing, Joss owns everything, but since he's not playing with the boys right now, I am!
Beta: Many thanks to the lovely and talented malinaldarose for her beta!
Author's Note: Written for the Spike round of maleslashminis, for warpedminded, who asked for Hawaiian shirts, chipped Spike and a vibrating plug and didn't want character death or cross-dressing. Unfortunately, both characters are already dead, but we know how flexible those things can be in the Buffyverse! Hope you like it! Brief cameos by two of Neil Gaiman's Endless.
