Well, Buffy's 18 at this point so Angel being in his 20's is moot point now. Still wrong as far as I'm concerned. Angel, well really Liam was a total waste of space...a young Tony Harris. You could have Angel slip back into that personality now that he's not powerful or special anymore. Xander would kick Angel's ass now.

I like where this is going

Thanks for the personal message! It's much appreciated. Plus nice chapter, my favourite line was Buffy's, 'Don't. You. DARE…!' I was actually expecting her to attack Whistler at that point, simply unable to prevent herself from doing that, but it's good to see Slay-gal does have some self-restraint. And the cameo appearances from Holland, Cyvus Vail, Sahjhan, and Doyle were a nice tease, I must admit. Still, the shanshu prophecy and related actions are indefinitely postponed? I wasn't expecting that...
As for where Xander goes, I'm assuming Oxnard at first, and the Fabulous Ladies Night Club. Assuming he doesn't go back to Sunnydale, there are any number of scenarios that could play out - including teaming up with Doyle and saving Cordelia from Russell Winters, if Jasmine wants to keep all her options open. Speaking of which, if Angel no longer qualifies as the vampire with a soul - would it be a feasible scenario if Willow cursed Spike that way once he gets the Gem of Amarra, as a possible solution to a vampire problem? If so, that would cause Dru to do...what?
As for your questions, I'll give my opinions based on what I recall was happening during 1999: Wesley, I suspect he'll lose an arm hunting that Kungai demon, if what was shown in the Birthday-verse episode was at all accurate. Cordelia is much more likely to get a menial job somewhere than become a TV star, what with her lack of acting talent. Doyle would never have attended the bachelor party for Richard Howard Straley if Angel wasn't there. And Jasmine's mother is FRED? How does she get the visions, a farewell kiss from Doyle? Any chance you'll also bring back Vamp Willow from the Wish-verse just before she was dusted, in order to become Connor's mother?
Anyway, I hope we see a continuation to this story, either from you or someone who answers your challenge. It deserves nothing less!

Interesting premise, and divergence from the show. It seems like Xander and Angel will follow different paths than what we saw from the end of season 3 onwards, looking forward to seeing where you take this next.

Not bad so far. It's good to see Giles noticing things that he let slip through the cracks in the show.
