Are You Ready To Be Strong?
Disclaimer: I own nothing. And the first chapter is just a scene from Chosen in season 7.
A/N: I am starting off showing the first moment of Slayer power for each of four girls, in chapter 6 they meet for the first time and interact for the duration. Chapters will be short at first. Sorry for that. Enjoy.
Buffy walked into the roomful of young girls. Potentials. Girls who were her age when she had first become the slayer. She walked among them and gave them one final speech.
"I hate this. I hate being here. I hate that you have to be here. I hate that there's evil and that I was chosen to fight it. I wish a whole lot of the time that I hadn't been. I know a lot of you wish I hadn't been either. This isn't about wishes. This is about choices. I believe we can beat this evil. Not when it comes. Not when it's army is ready. Now. Tomorrow morning, I'm opening the Seal. I'm going down into the Hellmouth and I am finishing this once and for all. Right now you're asking yourselves 'what makes this different. What makes us anything more that a bunch of girls being picked off one by one?' It's true. None of you have the power that Faith and I do. So here's the part where you make a choice. What if you could have that power? Now? In every generation one Slayer is born because a bunch of men who died thousands of years ago made up that rule. They were powerful men. This woman...,"Buffy said pointing to Willow, " is more powerful that all of them combined. So I say we change the rule. I say my
power should be our
power. Tomorrow, Willow will use the essence of the scythe to change our destiny. From now on, every girl in the world who might
be a Slayer will
be a Slayer. Every girl who could
have the power will
have the power. Can
stand up will
stand up. Slayers. Every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?"
It was awe inspiring. It was the speech that politicians dream about. And it would change everything.
