Wishverse:  a B/A, S/W story
revised 12.01
This is an Alternate Universe series based on the BTVS episode “The Wish”.
It contains spoilers for BTVS seasons 1-4 and Angel: TS through season 2 episode “Reunion”.
The series is broken into parts that range from PG to NC-17 for explicit sex and language.

    The supposition is this:  What if Cordelia had been granted her wish from a vengeance demon out of her frustration with Angel at the end of the episode “Reunion”.  Also, what if her wish in addition to “I wish Buffy Summers had never come to Sunnydale” was “I wish Angel’s curse didn’t have the make-me-brood clause”.
    The alternate universe created begins in December 2000.  Cordelia is living in Sunnydale.  As in the episode “The Wish”, Giles, Oz, Larry and Angel are all in Sunnydale as well.  BUT in this series, Cordelia is wounded, but not killed by Vamp Xander and Vamp Willow.  Buffy manages to dust Xander and the Master without getting killed.  Angel doesn’t get dusted.  Vamp Willow escapes.
    Giles does not figure out that Cordelia’s wish created their world and therefore cannot destroy the vengeance demon’s power source to put the world to rights.  Giles is doing research at the library waiting for Buffy, Larry and Oz to return as Cordelia recuperates on his office couch.
    This series picks up as Buffy, Larry and Oz get back to the library to gives Giles the report.
