In a town ruled by vampires, [[Sunnydale High School]] was lightly populated and held monthly memorials. Favoring the daytime, the school held a Winter Brunch (presumably in lieu of a dance), and students weren't allowed to drive cars. The remaining [[human]] inhabitants of Sunnydale wore dimly colored clothing, as it was believed vampires were attracted to the bright and revealing clothing. A curfew for all townsfolk was set right after school hours.<ref name=":0" />
When Cordelia found herself in this timeline, after learning what had become of Sunnydale in Buffy's absence, she managed to make contact with the White Hats and explain to Giles at least some details of what had happened. However, she was killed by Xander and Willow before she could give too much detail. As the Master began preparations to open a blood factory that would make feeding far easier, turning humans into little more than food, Giles contacted Cleveland and had Buffy sent down to provide assistance, although Buffy showed little interest in his talk of another world. Freeing Angel from his bonds to provide her with aid in the assault, although she only believed that Angel wanted the Master dead for torturing him rather than that he was willing to help her, Buffy attacked the factory, staking Xander, and allowing Oz to kill Willow, although Angel was staked by Xander and Buffy's neck was subsequently broken by the Master and she died. This shows that even in an alternative universe the [[Pergamum Codex]] will always come to pass.
 
   
Realizing that destroying the amulet would negate Cordelia's original wish, Giles performed a risky ritual to summon Anyanka, subsequently removing her amulet. As Anyanka asked him how he could be so certain that the other world was any better than this one, Giles grimly stated, "because it has to be" and shattered the amulet, erasing the timeline and all its consequences from existence (except for the continued destruction of Anyanka's amulet and loss of power).

Willow Rosenberg (Wishverse)[src]

Wishverse, referred to as Bizarro Land by Cordelia Chase, was an alternate timeline created by Anyanka after Cordelia wished Buffy Summers had never moved to Sunnydale.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

In this new reality, while Angel and Giles did move to Sunnydale, Buffy did not. Instead, she had moved to Cleveland, where she met her new Watcher.[1] With no one capable of preventing the Harvest,[2] the Master succeeded in escaping from his mystical prison. The Order of Aurelius overran and took over Sunnydale.[1]

Angel, considered a traitor, was captured and imprisoned, while others were killed or turned into vampires. Willow and Xander were sired and acted as the Master's leading acolytes.[1]

Whitehats

The White Hats.

In a town ruled by vampires, Sunnydale High School was lightly populated and held monthly memorials. Favoring the daytime, the school held a Winter Brunch (presumably in lieu of a dance), and students weren't allowed to drive cars. The remaining human inhabitants of Sunnydale wore dimly colored clothing, as it was believed vampires were attracted to the bright and revealing clothing. A curfew for all townsfolk was set right after school hours.[1]

Many of the shops in the Maple Court were closed due to vampire attacks as well. The Bronze, once a popular club, became the seat of power for the Master, filled with cages with trapped humans for the vampires to feed on and torture.[1]

In order to keep the vampires in check, Giles formed a team of vampire hunters formed by Larry, Oz and Nancy. However, they had few resources and were unable to actually affect the Order, who dubbed them the White Hats, and the Master considered them to be a minor nuisance and intended to deal with Giles at some point.[1]

Final fateEdit

The Wish Willow Cordelia Xander 02

Cordelia is killed by Xander and Willow.

When Cordelia found herself in this timeline, after learning what had become of Sunnydale in Buffy's absence, she managed to make contact with the White Hats and explained to Giles what had happened. However, she was killed by Xander and Willow before she could give too much detail. As the Master began preparations to open a blood factory that would make feeding far easier, turning humans into little more than food, Giles contacted Cleveland and had Buffy sent down to provide assistance, although Buffy showed little interest in his talk of another world.[1]

Buffy freed Angel from his bonds to provide her with aid in the assault, although she only believed that Angel wanted the Master dead for torturing him rather than that he was willing to help her. Buffy attacked the factory, staking Xander, and allowing Oz to kill Willow, although Angel was staked by Xander, and Buffy's neck was subsequently broken by the Master, killing her.[1]

Buffy faces the Master, who kills her.

Realizing that destroying the amulet would negate Cordelia's original wish, Giles performed a risky ritual to summon the vengeance demon Anyanka, subsequently removing her amulet. The demon asked him how he could be so certain that the other world was any better than this one, to which Giles stated: "because it has to be." He shattered the power center, erasing the timeline and all its consequences from existence — except for the continued destruction of Anyanka's pendant and loss of power.[1]

Anya, as a human, later attempted to reach into the past when this world existed to retrieve her amulet, but this effort only drew the vampire version of Willow into the main timeline from a point just before her demise. The doppelganger made a brief effort to re-establish her world, before consenting to be returned to her timeline, finding this world to be no fun. She was swiftly staked upon returning to her world, and the timeline unfolded as before.[3]
