[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/94924/1/The_Price_of_the_Wish The Price of the Wish]] is a DarkerAndEdgier Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer PeggySue with strong [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraftian]] elements, and a [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Watchers' Council]] that seems to think it's the [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles White Council]]. [[spoiler: And then there's the Board, which is essentially the [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Senior Council]].]]

Cordelia, realising she is on the Hellmouth, thinks a few seconds longer before wishing for vengeance, and comes up with ASimplePlan: go back to the day Buffy first arrived in Sunnydale with eighteen months foreknowledge. With that advantage, and her superb people skills, she could easily make Xander suffer as she had suffered while gaining herself a golden reputation into the bargain. She would be feted as the saviour of the world; Xander and Willow reduced to cringing wretches, held in utter contempt by all, even each other. It was just a passing fancy, but she gave it voice, and so sprang an age-old trap.

** Subverted: When Xander knows that he can't ACTUALLY escape, he TakesAThirdOption and PRETENDS to escape, then uses the opportunity to screw up the ritual magic circle, thus thwarting the demon. Lesson to cosmic horrors everywhere: Don't underestimate a GenreSavvy opponent and play with them by giving them a HopeSpot which they might be able to use to defeat you. [[NoNonsenseNemesis You would be better off to just shoot him]].[[hottip:*: unless the defeat of a disposable avatar is [[ThePlan part of a greater plan]]. Sometimes, there's no sure way of knowing who really won, itself [[ParanoiaFuel an incitement to paranoia]].]]

After that, ItGotWorse, nor has the bottom been reached yet. All indications are that the long parade of horrors Cordelia has endured to date is but the first few rain drops of the coming storm. The night grows ever darker, and there can be no hope of dawn.
