Buffy Summers, Chris HalliwellPairing(s):
BtVS post Chosen, Charmed season 6Notes:
I love this pairing and this took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do with it, there were just so many ideas. Hope you guys enjoy and let me know what you think. Chris POV (Fanart idea inspired by Dhfeak ). Written for the galorecrossover challenge at LJ.Disclaimer:

He hadn’t expected to fall in love with her. He hadn’t thought he could, not after the pain of losing Bianca was still so fresh. Not when her betrayal still twisted his gut and made him sick, when the last thing he remebered of her was the sorrow in her eyes blinded by the pain as she had silently begged him to forgive her.
He shouldn’t have fallen in love with her.
Secrets weighted heavily on him, dragging him down and tearing him in so many directions sometimes he swore he was going insane. That this weight was too much for anyone to bear, that he shouldn’t have the fate rest sqaurely on his shoulders when he had screwed up so brilliantly in the past.
His past, her future.
Sometimes everything got so confusing he got a splitting headache.
He shouldn’t have fallen in love with her but he had. He found himself loving everything about her. Needing her more than he should of.
He wasn’t suppose to be here, it wasn’t his time. Christopher Halliwell didn’t exist yet and because of his actions he still might not. Because he had been so desperate to save the future, save his family, save his older brother, he had acted impulsively and screwed up his own existence by breaking his parents up.
Chris hadn’t told them. He wasn’t going to. It was better if they didn’t know but it got harder and harder to look into Piper’s eyes and see the hate there when once upon a time all he had ever saw was love, unchangeable, powerful love.
Buffy had secrets too. She was running from a past where the people she had loved had betrayed her and the pain I her eyes was just as bright behind the mask as the one he saw in his own when he looked in the mirror.
In her future she was a legend, a fun and powerful story they had been told at Magic School of a real hero.
In the flesh she was so much more, so alive, so overwhelming.
She crashed into his life, literally, and kept throwing him off balance. One day they were fighting, throwing insults, blows (her), spells (him), and the next her legs were wrapped around her waist and he was pressing her into the wall of P3 as he lost himself to her passion, was able to forget the constant burning behind his eyes and the pain in his heart.
If it just been passion he could have withstood it, hell he could have ignored it because he had a lot of practive denying his desires.
It wasn’t though, not with her, not when she came to him in the middle of the night crying, not when he orbed her to the hospital and he watched her spend all night clinging to her little sisters hand as she barely held on.
Chris found himself caring about her, about her family, about her future and somehow the mission to save Wyatt had changed, because she had changed him.
He wanted her, he wanted the future with her that he saw promised in her eyes.
He just didn’t know how to fight for it.
He would figure it out though.
He hadn’t meant to fall in love with her but he had and for once in his life he was going to do something about that. He was going to let himself be in love, he was going to fight for his future.
