I have an ending for "Thought You Should Know". I like it. It's all cool in my head. It ties things up nicely while leaving things open. The open road ahead.
But now that the details are being colored in for my ending, my mind has started jumping to that "road ahead" space. Sequel. Oh, crap.
"Thought You Should Know" is mostly an exploration of Buffy's world, both romantic and professional. Spike is the other leading star, but he's not the focus. It's all about Buffy. In the sequel in my mind, he would be. Because there's so much to explore on his end.
