RATING: R, for character suicide.
CLASSIFICATION: Jonathan POV for first part, episode rewrite for second part.
SUMMARY: Buffy doesn't get to Jonathan in time to save him.
SPOILERS: "Earshot," of which the ending is rewritten.
DISTRIBUTION: Any sites with my fic up; you all have unspoken permission. I write it, you can post it. Everyone else just keep my name on it and let me know.
DISCLAIMER: If you don't recognize it, chances are it's my own creation. If you do, I don't own it. Joss Whedon, Kazui Sandollar, The WB, UPN, et. al. most likely do.
FEEDBACK: Please send it offlist and let me know it's feedback; I do rapid delete on my account due to a lot of spam. AUTHOR'S NOTES: Went to Challenge In A Can
and got "Jonathan," "empty" and "gun." I do realize this is a hard topic to write about or deal with. Please, if you do not like character death or have moral reservations against suicide, stop reading now. I promise I won't hold it against you.
To those still reading, this is a very personal story. It's been over twelve or so years since my last suicide attempt, when I was ten years old. I DO NOT ADVOCATE SUICIDE; I lost a friend almost three years ago to suicide and know it's not that answer. I am, to this day, glad I never succeeded.
