|Description||Cross with Sherlock (BBC)|
We know from the show that Buffy is, in fact, a lot more intelligent than she lets on. Truth is, she's always kept her intelligence on the down low for multiple reasons. She was a Southern California girl and fairly popular and didn't want to ruin it. By the time she moved to Sunnydale and accepted her calling, she figured it was probably better to NOT draw anymore attention to herself than necessary.
Because she IS extremely smart. Scary smart. Holmes smart.
That's right, somehow, someway, Buffy not-exactly-a-Summers is actually the younger sister (or half-sister) of Mycroft and Sherlock. There's a reason she spotted a vamp at the Bronze so quickly, her deductive reasoning skills.
The Watchers Council interfered to ensure Buffy would come to Sunnydale, because God knows if the Holmes's caught wind of what exactly they were planning for their flesh and blood, they have the resources and determination to cause A LOT of problems in their plans.
So they took Buffy through magical means (after all, any small amount of evidence found by the Holmes's could put them on their trail) and as far as the family knew, their only daughter was either kidnapped or dead.
Until, of course, years later, when one of Sherlock's cases leads him to the Watcher's Council, and it all explodes into a family reunion of spectacular proportions.
Buffy can be whatever age you decide.
Dawn's existence is optional.
Sherlock and Mycroft being uncharacteristically openly protective in their own ways.
Mycroft giving the Council (assuming this is before the explosion) his special brand of torment.
Buffy and John bonding.
