Love_curse is an one-on-one Role Playing Game. It is a Spike/Dawn romance. The characters and the setting belong to Joss Wheadon, the creator of "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer".
The story is set a few months after Buffy's death in the episode "The Gift", season 5 of BtVS. This is an AU in which Buffy is not resurrected. Against all odds, Spike managed to become Dawn's legal guardian. They both live in Dawn's house, 1630 Revello Drive, Sunnydale, CA.
Another important change. In this game Dawn is almost seventeen years old.
The remaining Scoobies don't like the situation, alhtough they're secretly relieved that they don't have to take care of Dawn. Willow and Tara are together. They're students at UC Sunnydale. Willow is getting deeper into magick. Xander and Anya have a complicated relationship. Tara is the only one who helps Spike sometimes. She is the only one of them whom he trusts and cares about.
