The final chapter of Preludes has been posted to spanderverse. But nothing is resolved for our heroes. Joyce receives some worrying suspicions from the Dr. Wains. Our monk refugees have made it to Italy during their flight after the flashback last chapter and Giles has opened the Magic Box, although there doesn't seem much traffic, yet. Well, its an official opening, so maybe that's why. Buffy gets a pleasant surprise, though, which was thoughtful.
