Challenge Name"The World is Older Than You Know"...remix
Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Multiple Crossings
DescriptionWe've all read stories where characters have to be initially introduced to the True History Of The World, Buffy-style. Otherwise known as a speech starting with, "The world is older than you know..." It's usually given in a textbooky, lecture style by one of the main Scoobies: Giles, Buffy, Willow, Xander, Dawn.

It's time for something a little less dry.


The Challenge: Redo the speech. Introduce a non-involved character to the supernatural via an updated version.

The Rules:

1) It should be a speech or talk of some sort, and it should hit all the highlights of the original: Demons ruled, Slayer came, creation of the first vampire, etc.

2) Make a supporting character do it. Ideas: Tara, Oz, Anya, Gunn, one of the Sunnydale Potentials-turned-Slayers...

Bonus) Feel free to insert random comments about how hard demon goo is to get out of clothes or how bad vampire dust tastes when you get some in your mouth; offhand stuff about the everyday reality of slaying.


Points off for:

>The words "the world is older than you know" ANYWHERE in the story. The phrase is overused and seriously needs a break.
>Having any of the following characters do the talk: Giles, Buffy, Willow, Xander, Dawn, Angel, Faith, Spike, Wes


This can be a oneshot or inserted into a larger story. Other than that, have fun with it!
