Buffy - red and terrible and red

Beta, beta, beta?

So apparently three days of taking a step back was all I needed to gain some perspective and enjoy a little breathing room.  Thanks to everyone for the well-wishing! *hugs*

I'm back to writing also and was wondering if anyone out there would be interested in beta'ing the next installment of "Thought You Should Know".  I've always edited my works myself (so few as there are), but I'd really appreciate some beta action this time around.

Any takers?
Buffy - red and terrible and red

FIC: Thought You Should Know - Chapter 3

Title: Thought You Should Know - Chapter 3
Summary: Spike wrote a letter to Buffy before the final battle in Not Fade Away.  Little did he know it was sent to the wrong person at the wrong place.
Characters/Pairing: Spike/Buffy, OC
Genre: Romance, Angst
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers for the end of Angel Season 5, After the Fall and up through Issue #23 of Buffy Season 8.

A/N: This story loosely follows the comics canon. Buffy was never in Rome as shown in The Girl in Question, but rather leading a new Slayer organization of over 500 members in the fight against evil. The "Buffy" that Angel and Spike tried to visit in Rome was actually a decoy set-up by Andrew to protect the real Buffy and keep her true location a secret. Out of the 1800 Slayers that were activated during Chosen and the 500 Slayers that have chosen to work with Buffy, a group of Slayers led by one Slayer named Simone have gone rogue and have been abusing their power a la Faith in Season 3. Want. Take. Have. In Issue #23, Buffy and Andrew go to Rome to try to gain intel on Simone and her gang, only to be forced into a standoff on the island Simone has taken over off the coast of Italy. Andrew's squad of Slayers ("Italy squad" as he calls them) come to their rescue, but Buffy fails to rein in Simone or remove her from power. Simone's violent acts have brought intense scrutiny on the Slayers from the world's media coverage.
