|Scarborough Fair by Lesley [Reviews - 1] |
This story is a companion piece to Root Systems.
Both go AU after S7 TKIM and S4 ATS Soulless.
The two form a diptych with the elder story telling the facts, and this story the emotions of the journey Spike and Willow take in a post-apocalyptic world, whilst also taking them much further forward in time. The title of each snapshot of their lives come from the Simon and Garfunkel canticle version of the traditional English folk song Scarborough Fair.
Willow and Spike interweave their tale together to form a canticle of their own.
English folk songs are often darker than they appear. This one is.
