Written For: Challenge 40: Sundown at drabblesoup.
Spoilers/Setting: Somewhere in the first three seasons.
Summary: Normal girl by day, Slayer by night.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
Other demon species are less picky, but vamps seldom venture outside before sundown. Sunburn isn’t just a minor inconvenience for them; it’s literal, flames and everything. Overcast days they can sometimes get away with it if they stick to the shadows, but this is California; most days sunshine’s kind of a given.
Still, vampires outnumber the other demons, so during daylight Buffy can sometimes feel almost like a regular teen, with the usual teen problems of grades, homework, boys, and fitting in.
But once the sun sets her life veers into the Twilight Zone where normality is a distant dream.
