A/N: Originally written for Fag End's Halloween 2014 Zombie Uprising challenge (yeah) for the prompt "Fairy-land."


He never knew where Dru would be. She'd sit her dolls at the table and be back at home with her sisters in the years he when was still a small child. Or a smile would spread across her face, her gaze would settle somewhere beyond his comprehension, and she'd twirl through Fairyland with princes and pixies.

He thought it was fun. Always something new, always something exciting going on in her head. Never any dull moments with his dark princess around.

But there's really something to be said, to for the moments when he wakes up beside Buffy, puts his arm around her and asks, "Where are you?"

And she smiles, and leans in, and says, "I'm right here."
