Review:
The Scooby Gang rebuilds their lives after the loss of Buffy.

An AU after season five, Reconstruction is the story of the time after Buffy's death. Told from Xander's point of view, it is believable with quite a few different story lines (protecting Dawn, new bad guys, grief over Buffy) that weave together well and a wonderful budding romance between Xander and Spike as they grow to depend on each other to protect their makeshift family.

Restoration is a companion piece to Reconstruction, told from Spike's POV.

Reunification is the sequel that takes the gang to LA and Angel Investigations.

What I like most about this series is that all the characters are complicated and they grow. None of the characters are deified or demonized. There are a few OCs that are believable, and pretty much everyone in the Buffyverse is mentioned at least once. A very enjoyable read.
