Set a few years after the collapse of Sunnydale, Oz and Buffy meet once again. It is only a matter of time before they realize they share more than a mutual attraction - an attraction they tried to deny in high school and exploded a few years later. Now, Buffy has a dream about a Slayer and a Wolf and, unbeknownst to her, Oz has the same dream.
