Disclaimer: Mutant Enemy owns Buffy the Vampire Slayer and MGM owns Stargate: SG-1. I don’t claim to own them, but hope no one minds me borrowing them slightly.
Post Season 4 AU for Buffy. Mainly because I didn't think Dawn and Glory would fit into the story. For the most part follows season 5 up till Intervention, but will eventually touch on concepts introduced in later seasons if twisted from canon slightly. Post Season 3 of SG-1, I would have made it later, but I'm still some what new to the SG-1 universe and with the exception of a handful of episodes I've pretty much only seen the first 3 seasons.
Rating: PG-13 for language and violence.
Inspired by: The Problem Child challenge issued by BuffyCharmed.
Summary: The Problem Child challenge. When SG-7 finds an ancient temple referring to the Chosen one, it’s arranges for The Slayer and her Watcher to be part of the team. Unfortunately Buffy didn’t expect to come face to face with her estranged sister.

PART ONE: The Players
Buffy sat on the rock staring at the fire and though of her life as of late. It sucked. It really did, and as far as Buffy could see it wasn’t getting better. It started with her mom getting sick, going in to the hospital and then it got worse from there. Riley got sick too, started seeking out vampire’s to bite him, because she wasn’t fulfilling his needs. She was disgusted, vampire prostitutes, could he get any lower. He claimed that she kept him at a distance, maybe he was right. But she had been disappointed so many times before, men leaving her in the lurch; she had to protect her self she just couldn’t handle the constant let down.
She signed, and adjusted her seat on the rock, and continued to look into the fire. When she thought about the last night she saw Riley she got angry all over again. He gave her an ultimatum, it was so sudden and unfair she walked away. Walked away from possibly the best man she had ever known because she was to stubborn to see what was right in front of her face.
Then Joyce got worse, and died, and there was nothing she could do or fight to make it better. Suddenly the center of world was gone, leaving a big empty whole in her heart. She had felt so lost, so alone since her mother died, and she started to retreat into her self. That was why she wanted to go on this vision quest, to find out if there something she could do before it was too late.
She looked away from the flames, but turned back when she saw movement. Buffy sat up a little taller on her rock and looked past the fire.
Suddenly she saw a figure crawl into the light. She was a lithe black woman, with white pain on her face, she moved like a tiger.
“I know you, you’re the first Slayer.”
“ * * * “
Giles sat behind the wheel and silently drove them home. Occasionally he would glance over at Buffy to make sure that she was alright, but she didn’t say a word.
He sighed. “Are you going to tell me what happened?”
“Death is my gift.” She said as she turned from Giles to watch the desert disappear as they continued to make their way to Sunnydale.

Captain Graham Miller sat in the mess hall across from the rest of his team mates the men of SG-7 with the exception of their CO. They were pretty new to SGC, having only been on base for a few months. They’ve were all that was left of a covert team that was organized to search and destroy Hostel Sub-Terrainians in Belize. They had lost of lot of good men and women in a short time, 75% casualty rate, only 3 of them survived. It was determined after that defeat that the US Army would pull out of confrontations with the HST’s until that time that they could no longer turner ignore what was going on, however that time was not now.
The three of them, Capt. Graham Miller, Lt. Jim Schultz, and Lt. Chris Ripley have been reassigned because of their classification clearance to join SG-7 under the command of Lt. Col Rick Madiowski.
Graham was about to take a bit of his blue jell-o when in walked SG-1, who took a seat at the table next to theirs.
“What’s it about Major Carter that always focus’ your attention? I mean don’t get me wrong and all, she’s pretty hot for air force, but really man?” Schultz asked in a hushed tone.
Graham just shook his head. “Can’t explain it. Every time I see her, it’s like I’ve seen her before but I can’t put my finger on it.” When he noticed the Major return his gaze he quickly dropped his head and focused on his jell-o once more.
Major Carter smiled when she saw Graham avoid her gaze, and then turned to Daniel.
“He’s looking at me again.” The smile could be heard in her voice.
“Another one undone by the Carter charm.”
Sam shook her head. “No, I don’t think so. He’s looking at me like he can’t figure me out. It’s just odd that’s all.”
“SG-7 has a solid reputation of being adapt at handling difficult situations against the Jaffa.” Teal’c stated.
“And they’ve been here for barely 3 months. I once asked Hammond about their past experience, but he told me that was classified and need to know. Apparently I don’t.” O’Neill added.
“Wait, how can their past exercise be classified from you, I though you have top clearance, sir?”
“So did I Carter.”
“Saddle up boys, our mission is a go.” Lt. Col. Madiowski called out to his team as he entered the Mess Hall.
The Lt. Col. Turned to meet the eyes of Col. O’Neill and nodded his head in recognition. The two of them had served together during the gulf war, and though they didn’t talk much, there was definitely a respect between them.
The other members of SG-7 pushed their chairs out and quickly made their way out of the mess to be followed out by their CO.
“ * * * “
15 minutes after leaving the Mess SG-7 was suited up and waiting at the base of the Stargate waiting for the even horizon to be initialized.
“SG-7 you have a go.” General Hammond said over the speaker.
They ran through the gate, and arrived on a world that was much like northern Washington State. There were high hills in the background and they were surrounded by forest.
“Miller, you and Ripley follow that path, the UAV showed some sort of structure about 3 clicks up. Schultz and I will make sure the gate is secure.” Madiowski commanded.
Miller and Ripley jogged until they found the structure that was previously mentioned, it was a one story stone temple with writing covering the entire surface. Most of the writing was unrecognizable to either officer, that is until they found the entrance.
“Graham, I think it’s Greek.” Ripley said dropping decorum, they had served together too long to go by last name and rank.
“Can you read it?”
Ripley ran his hand over the carving, brushing off some of the dirt and growth that had covered part of it.
“Ya, I think I can. You know my university cover with the Initiative, studying Greek and Latin has come in more handy then I ever would have thought possible.”
After a few moments, trying to clearly make out the words and to translate them Ripley spoke.
“That ain’t good.”
Graham looked at the door even through he couldn’t understand a word of it.
“Only the daughter of Sineya first of the Ones may enter here and retrieve the indestructible weapon.”
Graham just shook his head. “What does that mean?”
“You don’t remember?”
“Our last debriefing from Sunnydale. They showed us the footage of the civilians from room 314. The witch was casting some sort of spell and she referred to the daughter of Sineya before Buffy took out Adam.”
When Graham didn’t put two and two together Ripley spelt it out for him. “First of the Ones, as in the CHOSEN ONE.”
Graham got it.
