[2] About the crossover universe -->

BtVS - It goes AU after the end of the series (and is not even remotely comic book compliant.). Only parts of the last season of Angel happen (The whole Angel and Spike going to Rome thing doesn't happen, Buffy never went to Rome, and Willow and Kennedy stayed with Buffy -- They've all been to busy helping rebuild the Council to do such things. What happened to Angel Investigations? To Angel and Spike? It'll be explained at some point in "The Other Girl")

Harry Potter - Goes AU before "The Half Blood Prince" - Voldemorte was defeated by Harry and Co. long before Buffy meets Ginny. How and when isn't an important part of this series.

Highlander - Assume AU-ness after the series ended and pretend "Highlander - The Raven" and the last movie didn't happen.

Tomb Raider - It's a strange combination of the game and movie universes. (Yes, I cherry-picked the things that fit my story best.) Hence the rather involved explanation of the TR AU below:

There are 4 different Tomb Raider universes at this point -

[1] The original - games 1 thru 6
[2] The comic book series
[3] The 2 (and rumored 3rd) movies
[4] Games 7-9 (Tomb Raider Legends [TRL], Anniversary [TRA], Underworld [TRU])

Note: Game 8 ([TRA]) is a retelling of Game 1, set in the same universe as game 7 (TRL). Game 9 ( [TRU]) follows TRA (7).

The Tomb Raider AU involved in this story is a mashing together of everything except the comic book (which might change. I've started reading that recently). Lara's minions are from the movie (Winston retired years ago), her father's death/story is from the movie, her mother's death/story - from TRL. (The major differences in the 2 game and the movie universes -- What happened to her parents and when; her father's name/family; how Lara got into tomb raiding; and who her minions are and how involved they are in her life; -- the parent thing -- is hard to reconcile. The rest can be fan-wanked away...)

The only major change from movie/game canon -- Lara's home manor has been relocated to Westbury near Willow's coven (She has 3 in TRL).
Assume that Lara survives the events of game 6 ( 'Angel of Darkness') and the last two movies. TRL possibly fits in there somewhere. It all goes AU after that.
