|Category||Harry Potter > Willow-Centered > Pairing: Sirius Black|
|Description||This idea is for a BtVS/HP crossover, set just after the season six episode "Grave" for Buffy, and just after the events of Prisoner of Azkaban for Harry Potter.|
Willow is having trouble controlling her magic, and her emotions are still very raw with grief. She is in Giles' garden, singing a song softly to herself, and accidentally conjures forth a very rare, mystical flower with a truly mesmerizing scent. A soft breeze carries the scent of these flowers to Sirius Black, who is wandering nearby in the form of Padfoot and recognizes it as something he and his friends once encountered in the forest near Hogwarts. Sirius follows his nose to Giles' garden, where he encounters Willow. Sirius senses Willow's nearly unrestrained power (and of course her near overpowering grief) and decides to help her. Whether a romance develops is up to the author who takes up this challenge, as are the rest of the plot details.
This is a songfic challenge, based on the old Seals and Crofts song "Windflowers". I hope someone runs with it, because I think this could be a beautiful story. Here is a link to a short video of a live performance so that you can hear the song.
Here are the lyrics:
Windflowers, my father told me not to go near them, he feared them always,
Said they carried him away.
Windflowers, I couldn't wait to touch them, to smell them, I held them closely.
Now I cannot break away.
Their sweet bouquet disappears like a vapor in the desert. Take a warning, son.
Windflowers, their beauty captures every young dreamer who lingers near them.
Ancient windflowers, I love you.
