Instarec! "Only Connect" by thisiszircon

Yeah, here's the post-Chosen fic we've always wanted, that puts paid to all the stupidities of season 7. It interleaves Buffy's memories of the year spent fighting the First, in events canonical and extra-canonical, while we watch the Core Four straighten themselves out immediately after Sunnydale's been cratered. And two of our heroes get a bit more sorted out.

If you've read the two previous Giles/Buffy friendship stories by this writer, you know a bit of what to expect. The characters will talk, and they will find their way through the maze of bad feelings. Eventually. Buffy does some slugging in this one. All the characters are treated kindly, the ones still with us and the ones lost.

part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9

Go forth, read, and leave the feedback that feeds the hard-working writer. (And now I'd better go do so myself. But I think I'm going to read it again.)
