Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Multiple Crossings > Buffy-Centered
DescriptionBuffy was killed 3 times during the show, and went into one Hell Dimension (which could effectively mean that this dimension considered her to be “dead”), and since we don’t actually know for sure we can say that Faith flatlined for a few seconds after Buffy stabbed her in season 3, and that way we get 7 Chosen Slayers, including Buffy and Faith. 8, if you can find a way for Kendra to be resurrected from a slit throat after she died (if she doesn’t die, Faith won’t be called).

What if these 5 Slayers were actually Chosen, but like with the previous “extras” Buffy and Giles were not informed? What if the Council was able to contact the 5 girls, and their Watchers, before the Council’s HQ’s went kaboom? Or alternately if one or more of these girls doesn’t have a Watcher they could have a Dream leading them to Sunnydale. How will the Scoobies and the multitude of Potentials react to there not being 2 active Slayers, but 7?

It’s up to you if the girls coming to Sunnydale have managed to survive for 4, 2, and 1 years or if they are newly Chosen. It’s also up to you if they’re Council trained like Kendra was (nearly blind obedience to the Council/Watchers), found a year or two before being activated like Faith (some training), after the fact like Buffy (no preparation for the supernatural at all), or if they’ve learned by trial and error. They may also bring their own friends/allies when they show up. All the girls have to have been under the age of 18 when Chosen.

The other five Slayers can either be OC’s or girls from other fandoms. It would make more sense if they weren’t from the American continent, but rather from Asia, Europe, or Africa. After all it should be enough with two American Slayers. Also, these Slayers can’t have other magical abilities (i.e. Hermione can’t be a Slayer since she’s a Witch).

If you think they need more than seven Slayers to win the Battle then you can have someone be familiar with the Halliwell Family (Charmed), and suggest that they ask for the spell to Triple A Witch’s Strength/Charm of Multiplicity ( When Prue said the spell on Charmed it created 2 doubles, in addition to her. One clone was conservative and the other was sexy and flirting. It could be interesting to see two other sides of Buffy and Faith…

If you chose to use the spell it would make the number of Chosen Slayers go from 7 to 21, and there would be no need to Call the Potentials with the Scythe. After the Battle the doubles/clones will simply fade away if they are not killed.

This story has to be pro-Buffy, and she has to work things out with Faith. However, I would prefer if there was some kind of proper talk between Buffy and the Scoobies after they arrive in LA, with or without them admitting, and genuinely admitting, to the horrible way they treated Buffy in the later years. No easy solutions.

Good luck! :)
