AUTHOR'S NOTE I: This story is based on a fic request by the very patient [livejournal.com profile] kellyhk. I hope she likes it. And I hope she has more patience because, although I managed to rough draft the entire thing, I did not manage type it and send it to a beta in time to post the entire story. For that reason, I'm posting as a WIP.

shipperx: (Spike- When do we destroy the world)
For fanfic purposes, I'm trying to puzzle out a post-apocalyptic BtVS/AtS world.  

A few hypothetical discussion questions:

* What would the world look like in 20 years if The First got what it wanted? The First wanted to take over, to make the world... what, exactly?  What did The First actually want? Control?  Anarchy?  Worshippers?  Everyone as its puppets with the sublimation of free will, Sleeper-like zombies, Andrew-like betrayers?  What?  We assume the world would be full of evil and populated with a Hellmouth quotient of Cro-Mag vampires. But what does The First get out of it? With all of its yak-yak-yak, what kind of world would The First be intent on creating 20 years down the road?   The First would probably be more defined by magic/supernatural, I guess.  What would the world in the The First's image be?

* Another question.  What would the world look like 20 years after Not Fade Away if Wolfram and Hart and the Circle got what they  wanted?  A world controlled by corrupt lawyers, what would that be?  A different sort of apocalypse from most, I would guess.  They are corporate evil and a Demon Mafia.   What would that world look like?  What would that apocalypse boil down to?  I tend to assume that the bad guys really don't want the destruction of the world so much as to take the world over and exploit its resources to... uh... what?  (I'd fail at evil overlord school).  But what would the world look like in 20 years if Wolfram & Hart had won?

* If both The First and W&H/Circle are at work, would they share similar goals or would the two be at odds with one another (bullies can have personality conflicts with one another, after all).  Could these folks work together?  Is it a fragile truce, dividing the world into their own provinces, or two enemies united by a common goal?  If The First and W&H were at war, what would that mean? Is it chaotic evil vs. ordered evil?  If they were in concert, would that mean something else?

* In a First vs. W&H Battle Royale, who would win?  Or would they never go against each other?  Could they be provoked into going against each other because they have fundamentally different goals, or is it simply We're Evil.  Evil Rawks.  So... yay?

* What's left of humanity in all of this?  What about lower innocuous demon orders such as Lorne and Clem?  Vampires (not the ones with souls)?

I guess I'm trying to do a Sims game exercise, mentally building a world, or actually theorize about several, try them on for size and see which is most intriguing.  It feels that a post-apocalyptic world should be based on the desires of the villain in question (although it could be augmented by human self-destruction -- global warming, religious wars, etc).

So what would the world be if The First could construct it in its desired image?  What about a W&H based world?  Any thoughts?  Ideas?  Theories?  ...Wild speculation?
