Okay, so not the fic I was going to post next; wrote this one sometime last night (open office says I saved it at 23.41 hrs) ; rest of the details of its creation are in the authors notes (though I changed the title as I realised why it felt wrong last night; also I had to check a characters full name.
TITLE: After the Credits Are Over
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Movie/Comics/Series)
CHARACTERS: Owen Thurman; Pike;
'SHIP: ?!? Excusing the obviously mischievous pun; sometimes a sausage is just a sausage.
SUMMARY: What happens to all those characters that don't last in Buffy's world? Do they change; learn; adapt?
A/N: Three quarters of an hour ago none of this existed; now we have a kind of Buffyverse version of the three characters walk into a bar story... I like my muse; she's constantly surprising me. We have a character here from the original movie; resurrecetd for the comic version of that movie's original script; as well as a sequel story, and we have a one-shot character from a first season story, who I've always wanted to write about; both of them I mean.

Someone had come in.
He watched them in the mirror.
He'd no sense for pheromones, but he felt no fear.
In them anyway.
He'd have sworn minutes but, after a few seconds, the demon slunk off to a corner table.
The seat on his right had a new occupant.
“Name's Pike; sorry I scared your girlfriend away.”
Owen groaned. Girlfriend?
The owner chuckled as she handed Pike his beer.
Goddess watch over us all,
