While created as part of licensed material, it is not part of the original Buffyverse, but its own developed story.
Willow grew up in Sunnydale, and had Xander Harris as her best friend since childhood. By 2019, she had been open about her identity as a lesbian, and was in a relationship with Rose, another student at Sunnydale High.
One night, after eating at Tunaverse with Xander, they were attacked by a vampire, but fellow classmate Buffy Summers dusted him. Grateful for having saving their lives, Willow invited her to hang out, when they talked about the reality of the supernatural and Buffy's identity as the Slayer.
Buffy's Watcher and school librarian Rupert Giles soon requested Willow's help to bring him a magic charm to return the Camazotz in his dormant state. As she and Xander arrived the scene, the two were able to assist Buffy in her fight against the vampires Drusilla and Spike. Since then, the four of them formed a vampire hunting team dubbed the Scooby Gang, training and patrolling together, but maintaining this a secret even from Rose.
In the morning after going to the movies with a group of friends, Willow was called again by Giles, who requested her to go with Buffy to his home. There, he game them the news that Xander had been lured into a trap by Drusilla and Spike, and was turning into a vampire. The only way to suppress his demon would be with the artifact Anima Colligationem, that Buffy and Willow went after in the same day.
A translated map brought them deep into a forest to the Siphon, who demanded a sacrifice from Willow in exchange for the soul stone: half of her own. She promptly accepted, while Buffy uselessly offered hers instead, and soon she cough the soul tie. This allowed Xander to become "half human" and resume his daily routine, but the event was not without consequences, as Willow had difficulty dealing with the trauma of her own.
