Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters
Pairings/Characters: Gen; Wesley, Dawn, Spike
Spoilers: Set after Sticky Fingers, part of my Second Childhood series, which can now be considered complete.
Word Count: ~25,000
Summary: Wesley finally meets his grandmother. She is both everything and nothing like he expects.
A/N: This is quite a bit longer than I intended, but what else is new? And it’s probably the closest thing to a high school AU you’re going to get from me. That said, I’m tying up a few loose ends, and while I fully expect to revisit the series at some point in the future, I hope I’m leaving you all in a good place.

Word Count: ~4100
Summary: Blood may be thicker than water, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
A/N: Although “blood is thicker than water” is generally understood to mean that the bonds of blood kinship are stronger than any other bonds, other cultures have a slightly different take—that the bonds between those who take a blood oath are stronger than bonds between kin or even foster brothers. I’ll let you decide which understanding is more appropriate to this fic. Written for the hc_bingo prompt, “runaways.”

And before anybody asks, yes, I do want to write a sequel to this. Possibly several sequels, because de-aged Wesley is far too much fun.
