Author's Note: Dubbed the "challenge from hell" over at You Got the Stones (a defunct challenge site), I was compelled to give it a try: "An alternate-universe fic in which Faith is a vampire with a soul, Buffy is her grandchilde, Kate Lockley [the cop on Angel] is the slayer, and the rest of the characters are up to the author. Must have BOTH of the following: Angst, Death by fire for some vamp. Must have ONE of the following: Mention of some movie made by SMG or Seth, Alyson, or Eliza, but with diff actors; Riley getting beat up, whoever his character is; Mention of a vamp being executed mob style with cement boots; Some type of jail." (I used all.)

Author's Note the Second: Some may interpret this story as lesbianism = bad. That certainly isn't my intention, what with me being in a happy same-sex relationship and all.

Thanks: to beta readers Rabid, Limber, KJ Draft and Annie Sewell-Jennings.

WARNING: This fic contains brief depictions of rape (by female vampires with random victims), and graphic violence. It's not meant to titillate, it's meant to show that the vampires in this story are not sweet and cuddly, but horrifyingly evil.

Distribution: Links only, please. Do not reprint. Do not post translations. Thanks!

Disclaimer: All characters are property of Mutant Enemy and 20th Century Fox Film Corporation. I'm borrowing them to make them pervier and meaner than usual. Some dialogue is Joss Whedon's.

Rights: I do not own these characters or the worlds they inhabit. 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: Always welcome.
