Description"One thousand years ago, Superstition and the sword ruled.
It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of Gargoyles.
Stone by day, warriors by night, We were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect,
Frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years.
Now, here in Manhattan, the spell is broken, and we live again!
We are defenders of the night!
We are Gargoyles!"

So the challenge should be obvious, but I'm gonna state it. I'm looking for a "Gargoyles"/BTVS cross. While there are some really good stories with this cross out there, I'm looking for one that doesn't involve the now ubiquitous YAHF label. Meaning, Halloween transformations shouldn't be the main spark for the cross (although maybe having Buffy like the Gargoyles or know about them due to her "Lady Useless" transformation is a good idea). The story should be Xander or ensemble centered. I don't care if it takes place before or after "Chosen", but I do think that unless your main Gargoyle char is Demona, the story should take place in New York. Original characters are encouraged (especially new Gargoyles) and ships are open to what calls you, author. As far as plot, well I imagine it being something that brings the two groups of defenders of the night together. Otherwise (and even despite that plot suggestion), I leave it open to you.

Addendum: I wouldn't mind multiple crosses with this, as long as BTVS and "Gargoyles" remain the main focus.
