I present to you one of the very, very, very few Buffy YAHF that isn't, in some way, stupid: [url=http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2520472/1/]Ethan Rayne's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day:
It wasn't as if he'd gone into this night unprepared, after all. He'd read his Evil Overlord List. He knew the Murphy's Laws of Malicious Magic. There are reasons heroes don't generally encounter more than one master of dark magic at a time, and it has nothing to do with any inherent sense of fair play in the universe. More like the old adage of too many cooks spoiling the brew; only in this case, the brew melts the floor, the devil's food frosting drags down the cake and any unwary mammoths quicker than the La Brea tar pits, and the meatloaf devours hapless diners toe by toe.
Not that meatloaf really needs an excuse. It's over-spiced, it knows it, and as far as it's concerned, it's All Your Fault.[/url]
I mean, how can you ignore an intro like that?
