I own nothing of BtVS, AtS, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, or RoswellTime line:
This story directly follows the end of “Alien Life” in the “Contact” series. Roughly 10 years post “Chosen” for BtVS, 9 years post “Not Fade Away” for Ats, 3 years post “Unending” for SG-1, 2 years post season 4 of SGA, and 4 years post “Graduation” for RoswellSpoilers:
Anything from all the shows is fair game, although I’m not really expecting to discuss much of anything from Atlantis.AN:
I know I said it would be a while, but I got inspired and got the basic planning done quickly. I really need feedback though. I’m coming at this from a slightly different angle this time and some constructive criticism would be helpful. Also if someone could remind me what all the varied powers from Roswell were, that would be helpful since I haven’t watched it in a while.AN2:
“Contact with the Great Unknown has been nominated for the “Best Portrayal of Dawn” COA, The “Contact” series has been nominated for the “Best Crossover Series” COA and I was also nominated for the “Unique Universe” Fang Fetish Award. I am so pleased by that, you have no idea. Please vote for your favorites for all the awards this year, I did it first thing cause I wanted to make sure I did it. You don’t have to vote for me, there are certainly better, but be sure to vote.Chapter 1
The waving and refracting of the portal went unnoticed by the room’s occupants. There were two. One was obviously a demon. He looked a lot like Grimace from the old McDonald's commercials actually. The rounded body and purple blue fur with arms and legs just poking out. The other one was a human, or it looked like one anyway. The man was tall and lithe with a lovely face and wavy hair. That picture was marred by his odd distorted voice and the odd golden glow to his eyes. The room was a sad dirty place. It was a tack room off the stable of Senator James Martin’s farm in South Carolina. The two unlikely companions were in the middle of a ritual. The man was pacing in a circle around the demon tossing herbs as the big demon chanted and drew symbols on the ground in front of him.
They never finished the ritual. A wild arrow came soaring through the portal and startled them so much that the demon drew a line through his symbols and stopped chanting as the man dropped the rest of his herbs onto the floor in a heap. They turned and looked at the wall where the arrow had come from. The dark of the room masked the strange warbling of the wall, the motion like the heat from flames blowing over the surface. Both continued to stare for a moment, until a figure stepped out of the wall like a ghost..
“What are you guys doing in here? Not something good, I know that for sure.”
The woman was a small redhead with power radiating from her. She took in the room and its occupants and asked the man “Who are you? I know what he’s up to, but why are you helping him enslave someone?”
The man looked at her and began raging. “How dare you question the actions of your god? Bow down pitiful human and beg forgiveness for your heresy. Bow before your god.”
“Huh. One of those guys. Still doesn’t explain the whole partnering up with a demon thing.”
“Do not – “
The man was cut off by the appearance of 3 more people behind the offending human woman. One was an average looking young woman with long wavy dark blond hair and full lips, wearing jeans and a t shirt. She was crackling with the same power as the first intruder. Next to her was a young man with wild brown hair and intense eyes carrying a crossbow and a short sword. He had another sort of power, one that was familiar to the golden eyed man, but out of place. Finally there was a rather short blond girl who had an animal presence about her. She carried a very large and kind of scary looking axe.
The battle was quick. The predatory girl and the intense young man hacked away at the demon while the other women used their power to subdue the man. Once the demon was dead and the man was tied up they questioned him. All he would say was “I am your god and you will learn to submit to my will.” After a few minutes the redhead sighed and made a call on her cell phone.
“Hey, um, got a small problem here.”
“Yeah, well it was a Cregnar demon like I thought, but he wasn’t alone.”
“No not the big group I sensed either. It’s one of those sluggy snakey things like Dawn killed that time.”
“Yeah, the aliens.”
This statement got her startled looks from the young man and woman. She just looked at them and shrugged. She would explain more later.
“He’s not really in the mood to answer questions and stuff. We really can’t keep him either. Last time Dawn almost got killed and this is so not my area.”
“Ok, I’ll figure something out to do with him. Kay. Bye.”
When she finished her call she turned to her group. “This guy is one of a race of parasitic aliens that wanna take over the world and stuff. We don’t see them a lot. There is this military group that usually deals with them and they might be able to figure out what he was up to better than us. I think we should give him to them so they can deal with it.”
“How do you know he’s trying to take over the world?” asked the young man.
“Cause I’ve heard they did it once before and they keep showing up here and trying to exterminate the planet with big ass bombs and stuff.”
“Ok, how do we deliver him?”
“I’m thinking we drop him off on their doorstep and run like hell to regroup and make a plan to talk with them.”
The young woman looked skeptical. “How do we know we can trust this military group? Some bad stuff went down with the military before with you guys.”
“We’ve got some people working there. You know Dawn’s family right?”
The other three nodded.
“Jonas used to work there and so did Cassie’s mom. Jon and Spike work there now. They are of the good.”
“So are we calling Dawn for a ride or what?” asked the girl.
“I don’t wanna risk it. Those things freak her out and I don’t want him around her or AJ. I think we’re gonna take the direct route.”
The girl looked concerned. “Isn’t that like a huge power drain?”
“Yeah, but Maria can boost me and it won’t drain me as much.”
The young woman, Maria, looked skeptical. “Are you sure Willow?”
Willow smiled. “Sure. I used to do it a lot with Andrew before Dawn started doing her TWERP thing. Just grab my hand and Michael’s. Josie can take my other hand and Michael and Josie can hold Snake Boy.”
Josie giggled. “He’s pretty hot for a snake.”
Willow rolled her eyes at the girl. “Just try not to grope him too much. We don’t’ want him too traumatized to answer all the questions later.”
The group arranged themselves in a circle and after a moment of building power they disappeared with a pop.
