Author's Note: This is all Echidna's fault. She had to write A Touch of Jealousy. Now I have a fever... and the only cure is MORE AU.
Author's Note The Second: Yes, I moved Buffy out of the Valley and into Bel Air. Trust me, it makes much more sense. (In the same vein, I also made a slight adjustment to Hank's legal specialization.)

Disclaimer: Buffy, Spike and Sunnydale, et al, are property of Mutant Enemy and 20th Century Fox Film Corporation. I merely use them as pawns in my perverse fantasies, and sometimes for chores.
Rights: I do not own these characters. However, the text I have written is not YOURS to paste into your own fic in any way, shape or form. That is called plagiarism, and it is not cool. Not that YOU would ever do that, because YOU are awesome. Obviously. :)
Feedback: Burns so good!
