Fic Title: West of the Moon, East of the Sun
Genre: Series AU, Adventure, Romance
Why This Must Be Read: Every day Buffy Summers spends juggling the pressures of being both a nineteen year old girl and the Slayer: college, family, friends, insecure boyfriends, demon slayage, irritating vampires, and saving the world. Every night, however, she spends in a pitch dark room, with a big bed, and a strangely silent vampire whose face she cannot see...
Note: The story takes place almost immediately following the season 4 finale "Restless" and goes AU from there. It does follow Season 5 fairly closely until sometime after "Fool For Love", and thus, certain canon events still happen. Glory and Dawn (and any other related characters: Ben, the monks, etc.) do not exist in this universe.
