A/N: This is my first Dawn/Spike fic. I've only recently started reading the pairing and it's one of the most fascinating one's I've found. I am an avid Buffy/Angel shipper and I do not, under any circumstances, write Buffy/Spike. I love Spike and Buffy, don't like them together.
Timeline: Takes place directly after 'The Gift' only a slight AU is done; Joyce is still alive (it is explained in the story and my main purpose in doing this is I might, sometime in the future when this fic is done, write a sequel with a Harry Potter crossover and….it's worked out in my head but I'm not sure if I'm going to do it but I wanted to keep the possibility open if I decide to) and Dawn is a little over a year older in this than she was in the series.
Warnings: This is a Spike/Dawn pairing. Dawn is a minor and Spike is a hundred plus vamp, if this offends you or you are too young to read such things, don't click the link. You have been warned.
