"Immortal Beloved..." LXVIII...



A shortie...



PG-13



Disclaimer: No, Joss, no...I make no claims, put that thing down!

It's all yours and ME's...



Spoilers for Angel to the bitter end...Flee at once!...



Summary: Various outcomes following "Girl In Question" and /or "Not Fade Away" on Angel...(A series of potential outcomes rather than a single multi-part story...)

Ok, I lied about stopping at 50...But me poor ole mum would just say, "so long as I like it, it's ok..."

"Dear Giles...Willow...Xander..." The fax read...

"By the time you get this I will be in LA, via orb of Callistos teleport. (See I have retained a little of the mumbo-jumbo, Willow) As will as many of our local Slayers as I can reach...I know they'll come, if they can, for him...

The following came this morning and by now Andrew has probably reached you and told you that I got it all out of him a few minutes later...After I saw the look on his face...

If you hadn't stopped him from telling me, we might've had a fair chance...Now...Odds are we probably won't make it, if I even reach him in time...

I wanted you three little self-appointed Buffy 'protectors' to know that...And...

...If I live, from now on, let me handle my love-life...

Buffy..."

Buffy,



i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)i am never without

it(anywhere i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your

doing,my darling) i fear no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want no

world(for beautiful you are my world,my true) and it's you are whatever a moon

has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest

secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and

the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows higher than the soul can

hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart i

carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

-ee cummings



Sorry, couldn't say it nearly so well myself. All my best.

Yours forever,

William...
