(Written in 2005.)
Set in Season Seven, this fic goes (very) AU after "Selfless" (and after AtS Season Two and the episode "Dead End"). It was in part inspired by an LJ friend who opined that Anya's Sunnydale story ends after that episode. Well, then! Giles, shell-shocked and wounded, is on a quest for the Prokaryote stone; he finds much, much more than he expected. The fic also contains a supporting turn by an AtS character.
