Challenge Details

Challenge Issuer(Past Donor)Mhalachai
Challenge NameNormal Again in Crossover Land
Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Multiple Crossings
DescriptionThe challenge is to cross BtVS's "Normal Again" episode with the fandom of your choice. If you don't recall, "Normal Again" is the season six episode where Buffy is poisoned by a demon and hallucinates that she is in a mental hospital, her mother is alive, and Dawn and Buffy's life as a Slayer are hallucinations.

The point of the challenge: Buffy's life as a Slayer is a delusion, but one she feels she has truly lived. When she recovers from her catatonic state and goes home with her mom and dad in the crossover world, she must deal with what she remembers from her "life" in Sunnydale.

Fic should include:

- Buffy falling into conversation with Joyce about Dawn, only to realize Joyce doesn't know what she's talking about.

- Buffy seeking to hold on to some vestige of her "old" life.

- Buffy interacting with the main characters of the crossover world in a work setting (her work or theirs.)


- Look-alikes (i.e., no Xander-shaped friends around the corner)

- Suicide or mutilation. No matter how you slice it, Buffy’s strong and she's moving forward.

Bonus points if you have a Hank and Buffy scene.
