Wishverse is a canon alternative universe in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This AU was created in the third season episode "The Wish" (3.09), in which Cordelia wishes that Buffy Summers never came to Sunnydale. This Wishverse is a term coined by fans to describe this AU verse. In this episode, most of the main characters die or become vampires. This episode introduced Wishverse versions of most of the main characters, including Xander and Willow as vampires and Angel as their prisoner.
The Wishverse is generally a darker timeline, and much of the fanworks set in the Wishverse also skew towards dark fic.
