Buffy - Fic: Knowledge

Title: Knowledge

Rating: PG
Summary: Kennedy is painfully aware.

Timeline: Sometime in season 7, after Willow and Kennedy are together, obviously.

AN: So this is a Kennedy fic… Hey, come back!






You’ve been accused of many things, but being stupid isn’t one of them.


You’re no genius, but you can see the obvious.


You know you’re not quite the bad ass you like to think you are, and you know that everyone else knows it too.


You know you could die any day now.


You know you could never completely understand Willow’s power, her darkness, and you know that she resents you a little for it.


But of all that you know there is one thing that is painfully obvious, that you can’t ignore, even if you wanted to.


Willow could never love you.


Oh, she cares, and if you died, she’d grieve, but she wouldn’t hunt down and kill the one responsible, wouldn’t lose herself in the pain, and her hair would still be red.


You know it’s not a coincidence you’re so different from the love of her life.


You wonder if it’s wrong to be jealous of a dead woman.


Because in the brief glimpses you’ve seen, you can tell being loved by Willow would be beyond anything you’ve ever experienced.


You know that you don’t love her either. Yet. And you know that loving her would result in the heartbreak of your life, and that you should end it now, before you go past love and start hating her, before she starts realizing about your relationship what you already have.


You know lots of things.


You know that Andrew’s a little scared of you, that Dawn dislikes you on principle, that Xander is just itching to give you a warning about hurting his best friend, and that Willow has an incredibly sensitive neck.


You know that this will end badly, and that you’ll probably come out as the bad guy, and that you’ll blame yourself, because Willow would never hurt you on purpose.


You know lots of things; you’re just too close to falling completely in love with the wrong girl to care.

I love Kennedy (and Willow) any way I can get 'em, from happy to sad and everything in between. Thank you for this!

Too little Kennedy fics out there! Thank you so much for writing this; you're awesome. ♥

Oh, there absolutely need to be more Kennedy love. And I wouldn't say I'm awsome... But if you insist!

Fic: Knowledge

Oh, Kennedy.
I love the second person. And the begins or panic or desperation or despair in the knowledge of how things are. It makes too much sense.

I my head Willow and Kennedy have a long lasting and fulfilling relationship.

Re: Fic: Knowledge

Thank you.

In my head they break up and Kennedy has a fling with either Faith or or Dawn, or both. Willow has a one night stand with Buffy and finally deals with Tara's death. The one night stand also allows Buffy to confront her feelings for Faith.

Willow and Kennedy meet up again after a year or two and then have a long lasting and fulfilling relationship.

I think I maybe just want every female character to sleep with each other...

Re: Fic: Knowledge

So long as ultimately Kennedy and Willow find a way to be together, I'll be happy. Buffy/Faith works well, too.

Is this a fic that you've written or a likely to write?

Re: Fic: Knowledge

It's a bit of a mix of ideas I've had for numerous fics. Writing it down like that did get me thinking however...

You know, I have re-read this far too many times, and never commented...

I love this. It is one of my favourite fics ever.

(Just thought you should know.)

Wow... just wow.

Thank you so much, for reading and commenting and letting me know.

I have never liked Kennedy more than I do right now. I don't dislike her, really, but she's just not Tara, so it's hard to like her and Willow together....

But WOW! This look into her head you've written has made me feel all warm and fuzzy about her. Awesome fic!
oroborusfox From: oroborusfox Date: May 9th, 2009 11:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I actually really like Kennedy, so whenever someone says this helped them, at the very least, not hate her I'm very happy. So warm and fuzzy is an extra bonus!

Outstanding. The rhythm and flow of this is wonderful, and I love the insight into Kennedy you have here. It's achy and tragic and you just can't help but feel for the girl that wants to fall so badly, even though she knows it'll end in tears.

This is immense fun to read, please don't ever remove this tale.
I think it's spectacular.
