I don't the X-Men, those belong to Marvel Comics and were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was created By Joss Whedon and all the characters with the BTVS TV series are his as well.
The Thundercats were created by Ted Wolf and currently belong to Warner Brothers, at one point in time Marvel comics did do a run of the them in comics form, although DC comics do them now.
This is a piece of fan fiction. I make no claim to the characters within it and am not writing this to gain any form of profit. This is mostly done for my own amusement and I hope for the enjoyment for the handfuls of people reading it.
Rupert Giles, Sam Zabuto and Robin Wood were dealing with the current situation of misinformation, deceit and outright lies the best way they could. They had gotten stinking drunk.
Giles made a mental note to keep more scotch in his office for future situations. As it stands they were nearly out of alcohol and Sam was explaining how he'd been a street kid that knew how to fight demons well enough to survive until he'd saved Donovan Michaels' life. From that point on Donovan had treated him like a son.
Things changed after Don got a hold of a potential. It was okay at first, he and Nikki were best friends until puberty got the better of them. Nikki got into 'trouble' and Sam had been packed off to the Watcher's Academy. By the time he'd graduated Nikki had already been called as a Slayer and killed. He took an assignment that suited his talents and had spent the better part of his life since then in the West Indies.
Robin spoke of how his mother's Watcher had raised him telling him that his father was a fool that had gotten himself killed soon after being introduced to the night life. He spoke of his life here in California and how he'd just recently finished his required student teaching needed to get his degree in education. He spoke of dreams to go into administration after getting his Masters Degree in education.
What was left unsaid was what utter bastards the Watchers as a whole seemed to be.
Giles poured the last of the bottle into the three glasses. “A toast.” Giles slurred. “To our Slayers.”
“Our Slayers.” Robin and Zabuto chorused.
A few days later things were getting better. After a couple of very angry phone calls, Robin was on a plane with his real father and Kendra back to Jamaica.
Buffy and Kendra weren't exactly friends, but they stopped trying to out do one another. Kendra was a good Slayer, she just didn't have the instinct and grace Buffy seemed to possess most of the time.
Sam Zabuto was given a copy of the various training exercises Giles had put Xander through and was intrigued on how they could help his Slayer. He also gained a son and possibly an apprentice in one fell swoop. Things weren't perfect with Robin and himself, but both of them were going to give it a chance.
School on the other hand was something else.
Career week brought some surprises for most of them.
Both Oz and Willow were singled out by a strange thinktank, but both of them declined the offer. Buffy found out she had a possible career in either law enforcement or social work, and Xander discovered his future may include Architecture.
The real shocker was the Cordelia's test said she'd do well in health care. Something that actually made her parents sit up and pay attention to her for once.
She was nearly glowing the rest of the week, something Harmony tried to blame on some sunless tanner gone horribly wrong.
Things were going good for the teen until Buffy's mom got a new boyfriend.
Buffy had noticed that her mother had been acting a little off for about a week before she and everyone else found Joyce kissing a man in the kitchen.
Xander was the one to point out, what to him was the obvious.
“You know he's not real right?” He asked Joyce while his gaze never strayed from Ted.
“What are you talking about Xander?” Joyce wondered.
“Now son, I don't like that kind of talk.” Ted said in a near monotone.
“Synthetic oils and a touch of hydraulic fluids. I'd almost say he was a mechanic except I can hear some of his internal machinery. He's a robot.” Xander told everyone.
Oz raised an eyebrow.
“Step away from your date mom.” Buffy said quietly.
“You're certain?” Joyce asked Xander.
“Yep. How about Buffy and I escort him out? Also, don't eat his food. The cookies don't smell right.”
“I don't want any trouble.” Ted told them.
“Sure you don't.” Buffy said. “Let's go.”
“Can't we talk about this?” Ted asked.
“No not really.” Xander said as he grabbed the robot's arm.
Ted didn't put up a fight as the two teens showed him out of the house.
“I'm going to follow him home. See what's the what.” Xander told Buffy before fading from sight.
“Be careful.” Buffy said to the night before going in to comfort her mother.
“I still can't believe this happened.” Joyce said as Buffy made her way into the kitchen.
Oz summed it up. “Chicks dig robots.”
“We'll be going now.” Willow said before pushing her boyfriend out of the kitchen.
“Chick flick?” Buffy offered her mother.
“You make the popcorn.” Joyce told her.
“Deal.” Buffy agreed.
Xander wiped the muck off his hand. “I'm half tempted to keep you for parts. Willow and Oz would have a field day.” he said to the mangled robot before kicking Ted's head across the room.
“Then again, I like setting stuff on fire too.” Xander said as he pulled out his bolo whip. Before he started he whispered a small prayer for the four women whose bodies he'd discovered.
Later in Health Class...
“Oh god.” Xander said before retching onto the floor.
“Mr. Harris, theatrics aren't going to get you out of the assignment.” Mr. Whitmore, the Health teacher said.
“Bad eggs.” Xander said hoarsely. “Destroy them all!” He screamed before leaping at the health teacher and removing something small from the back of the teacher's neck. Mr Whitmore fell to the floor unconscious while Xander held up a wriggling gray thing. He threw it onto the floor and squished it causing it to make a small screaming noise as it died.
The class looked at their eggs in horror before throwing them all to the front of the room so they shattered against the chalkboard. There weren't any yolks on the board, instead small gray creatures struggled to their feet.
Everyone huddled against the far side of the room as the gray creatures that had been in the eggs made their way towards them.
Xander, Buffy, Willow and Cordelia managed to stomp the majority of them, but a few managed to escape into the duct work.
“Wait....”Xander said as he remembered some of the reading he'd done over the summer. “I know these. There is a reference to this in Beakman's compendium of the ghastly... Bezoars. There's a momma one of these around here. We need to find it, and we need to kill it.”
Willow looked at the rest of the class. “Class dismissed.” She told them before the four teens made their way out of the class room as Xander tried to follow his nose.
“Down.” Xander said. “How did I miss this one? It reeks.” He asked the others.
Buffy and Willlow shrugged while Cordelia mentioned that quite a few of the girls in school had been experimenting with different perfumes lately.
Xander sighed. “Sorry about the vomiting. Those things smelled repugnant.” He told them as they went into the school underground.
“It's fine. You didn't get any on my shoes.” Cordelia consoled him.
Buffy and Willow sighed.
After a few minutes journey they found the mother 'hen'.
“Not it.” the three girls called.
“Oh damn it!” Xander swore before he jumped up above the beast, holding his position for a moment before using his full weight to try to squish the beastie. He was rewarded with a torrent of black goo that coated not only him but the three girls as well.
“Oh gross!” Cordelia screamed. “I am never following you freaks again!” she said before stomping off.
“Next time I am so bringing my mom's Gallagher gear.” Willow said.
“Whatever. Let's go hit the showers.” Buffy said before she and Willow followed Cordelia's example.
“Can I watch?” Xander called to them as they left.
“No.” the two girls called in unison.
Xander hid grin before following behind them.
“Dude what's with the look?” Oz asked Xander that afternoon.
“You ever get a glimpse of heaven?” Xander said dreamily.
“Ow Ow Ow Ow! Oz you traitor!” Xander said as he tried to get out of the pummeling he was under.
“Sorry dude. You saw Willow naked.” Oz told him from where he was sitting and eating popcorn.
“You bastard!” Buffy and Cordelia shrieked at him as they continued slapping and punching his huddled body.
“Okay! Okay! Enough with the hitting!” Xander cried.
The girls paused in their beating. “Look, I'm not sorry.” Xander said before being hit by Buffy again.
“I'm not sorry.” Xander repeated. “But all three of you didn't want to kill that thing. I can however make it even.”
The girls looked at him like he was crazy.
“I'll allow it.” Oz said before munching on another handful of popcorn.
“Happy birthday to me.” Buffy whispered.
“Hey, hey, we never agreed on pictures.” Xander said as he tried to cover himself.
“You didn't say we couldn't.” Cordelia said as she recharged the flash.
