Remix: Holding (The stalwart and true Remix) [Willow, Xander, mentions Giles, Tara, Warren, 150 words, rated PG-13, implied character deaths], by crevanfox
She cries and screams until she can't anymore.
She cries for Tara, and what she did to Warren, and what she's done to her friends. She cries because Giles might be dead and she might be the one who did it.
She cries because Xander is holding her, and rubbing her back and telling her it's going to be okay, and for the first time since Tara fell to the ground with a red circle blossoming on her chest Willow believes it.
She cries because she almost ended the world, after everything they've done to save it. After everything they've lost fighting for it.
She cries because she attacked Xander and who else would do the snoopy dance for her if she snuck over to their house on Christmas?
She's not sleeping, but she's too washed out to move, clutching at Xander and staying very still seems like the only thing for her to do.
