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.
Oz was awakened from a nice afternoon nap by the phone ringing.
“Hello?” Oz groggily said into the phone.
“Oz, it's your uncle David. Listen, I need your help. There's rumors about a hunter coming to town. I need you and your friend to help keep watch over me and my family over the next three nights. I don't want this bastard going after Jordy or your Aunt Lisa.” Oz heard his uncle plea.
“What do you need us to do?” Oz asked him.
After letting out a shaky breath, David explained.
Xander looked up from his book. “What's up Oz?” He said to the teen as he opened his window.
“My uncle is calling in a favor. He needs our help.” Oz told him.
Xander closed his book. “What's the what?”
Oz told him.
“You know what this means right?” Xander asked him with a grin.
“What?” Oz asked him.
“Stakeout! I'll get the snacks.” Xander told him before pausing. “How did you get up here? This is the second story.”
Oz frowned as he looked down. “Honestly, I don't know.” He told Xander.
Xander grabbed his hand and brought him inside. “Well, let's figure that out later. How do you feel about jerky?”
Oz paused in thought. “I'm fond. I'm fond of jerky.”
“Cool, what about Twinkies?” Xander asked him.
“More of a Zingers man.” Oz told him.
“Damn. We'd better make a list.” Xander said before trying to find a piece of scrap paper.
“Sure.” Oz agreed with a grin.
“So you're doing what tonight?” Buffy asked him.
“Stakeout at Oz's uncles. It's a thing. Not a big thing though.” Xander told her.
“But what about patrol?” Buffy asked.
“Willow's rockin' the pellets now right?” Xander said.
Buffy paused. “True. I suppose a night off without you could be okay.”
“Three nights.” Xander said.
“What? Why?” Buffy asked with wide eyes.
“Well, you could say that Oz's uncle and family have a monthly condition.” Xander said as he began to explain.
Two nights later....
“So you actually had the balls to hunt werewolves on the Hellmouth.” Xander said to the hogtied werewolf hunter. Xander was in full fur tonight. Apparently Oz's family had a live and let live policy with him in this form.
“MMMHH MMMHH!” The hunter screamed through his gag.
“Yeah, I don't care.” Xander said. “Now, I'm going to take you to the city limits and once it's dawn, I'm going to leave you untied and unconscious. But right now? I'm getting us out of the formerly secure compound that was here to keep the werewolves in you stupid bastard.” Xander told the fool before hauling him over the fence.
“I can't thank you enough Xander.” David Osbourne said as he shook the teens hand. “Is there anything I can do?”
“Well there is one thing.” Xander hedged.
“What is it?” David asked.
“Can you recommend any good shampoos? No matter what I've tried on the human market I get real frizzy.”
“Well, I can recommend a few things and give you some grooming tips.” David said with a smile.
Valentines day was fast approaching, and for some it meant they were getting sappier and sappier.
Willow and Oz were one of the prime examples of this roaming the halls of Sunnydale High. Others though were still determinedly single, either by fate or by their own plans. It was at this point in time Buffy was bemoaning her lack of a romantic partner.
Nobody had seen Angel since before Halloween, and well Xander wasn't exactly complaining about that.
“Seriously Buffy. We could try and do a spell to see if there is someone here that would be willing to date you, being a Slayer aside.” Xander told her.
“It's Johnathan.” Buffy told him.
“Oh.” Xander said before blinking. “Your call on that one then.”
Buffy's talents were growing, slowly it seemed. It wasn't just being able to find her mom's keys and knowing who was calling on the phone without looking at the Caller ID, it was other things as well. Random things mostly.
Xander was actually getting a little worried about her. She was finding better spots to raid then he was, which was creeping him out. So far they'd raided six crypts and robbed three graves to recover some dangerous artifacts that Giles had destroyed once he realized what they were.
Neither teen had seen magical fire like that before.
On the plus side of Buffy being a mystical doodad detector, she was finding some wonderful treasure troves of actual treasure as well. Both teens were slowly increasing their bank accounts through Giles expertise with ancient items and Joyce's art shop.
Buffy's mom wasn't too worried about affording her daughter's college tuition anymore.
“So Buff, you see any interesting women in my life?” Xander asked her.
“Aside from the ones who will routinely try to kill you?” She said with a grin.
“But do I get to sleep with any of them? Better yet, will I enjoy it?” He asked while wiggling his eyebrows.
“Nothing is certain Xander. Although if you go down the hall, you might be able to get a date with Amy after she's done using magic to bespell a teacher.” Buffy told him while she filed her nails.
“Does Giles know?” Xander asked her.
“Jenny's going to talk to her in about six minutes.” Buffy said.
“Okay, that's a little weird.” Xander said after he flipped over to the table. “You know I'm oddly reminded of a cartoon where a guy's mother became psychic and she knew everything that was going to be on TV before she saw them.”
“Seen it.” Buffy said before blowing a bubble with her gum.
“Okay. So what? Is there any girl in Sunnydale I can date that won't try to kill me? Present company excluded of course.” Xander said while Buffy halfheartedly glared at him.
“Well there's one.” She said just before Cordelia came bursting into the library.
“Giles needs to fix me!” Cordelia said as she stormed into the Library still wearing her gym uniform.
“What happened now?” Xander asked her.
“We were playing basketball in Gym because of the rain.” Cordelia began.
“Go on.” Xander said with a lopsided grin that was caused by his overactive imagination going to a fun place.
“I slam dunked the ball and shattered the backboard.” Cordelia continued.
“Whoa. I didn't see that one.” Buffy said as she set the file down.
“Pumyra did have a great leaping ability.” Xander said carefully.
“Do you know what this means?” Cordelia demanded.
“That you can go to college on a full athletic scholarship?” Xander guessed.
“Besides that.” Buffy said with a snort.
“We go as the same costumes next Halloween?” Xander offered.
“I'll never get a normal boyfriend! I'm a freak!” Cordelia exclaimed.
“Ohhhh.” Buffy and Xander said in unison.
“So, you have any dinner plans?” Xander asked her.
“What?” Cordelia half snarled. “Why you...!” She said before storming out of the library.
“She'll come around.” Buffy said before digging into her purse and pulling out two different shades of pink nail polish. “Which one?” She asked Xander.
“The left.” He told her before walking out of the library to go find Cordelia.
Buffy chose the other one instead.
“I can't believe I'm doing this.” Cordelia said while picking up her knife.
“Come on, this is the, and I mean THE best steak in town.” Xander said as he cut his own into manageable sized pieces.
“Steak dinner? What's next bowling?” Cordelia scoffed.
“Have you been talking to Buffy about this?” Xander asked her as he set his silverware down.
“What? No! We're not really going bowling are we?” she asked with an expression of distaste.
“Not now. Had I known you had a phobia of large heavy balls and waxed floors I wouldn't have planned it.” Xander said before sipping his water.
“So what are we going to do instead?” Cordelia asked.
“Well we could go see a movie... or we could do something you'd like to do.” Xander offered.
“Anything?” Cordelia asked with a raised brow.
“No pictures.” Xander warned with a smirk.
What about..” Cordelia began
“No videotaping either.” He said.
“Damn.” she said with a snap of her fingers.
“So where are your parents?” Xander asked her as they treaded water in her family's pool.
“Out of town.” She said with a smile.
“I'm pretty uncomfortable right now.” Xander told her.
Cordelia's smile widened..
“Whoa, hands!” Xander said
The smile got even bigger.
So did something else.
Oz and Willow sat up from the kitchen floor, their hair incredibly messed up and both of them were grinning like idiots. “Pizza?” Oz offered her.
“Sounds good.” She agreed.
Things were going fine for our group of intrepid teens, until Cordelia shared something startling.
“The hospital where I'm candy striping. I work in the children's ward and a lot of the kids are dying. One of them... one of them drew this.” She said as she handed Buffy a drawing of a monster.
“The kids are being killed by this?” Buffy asked.
“Only the kids have seen it. I don't know why.” Cordelia said as she wiped some tears from her eyes.
Xander hugged her. “We'll find it. We'll kill it.” he assured the troubled teen.
“Good.” Cordelia said before regaining her composure.
“Anything?” Buffy asked Xander.
“Something, I can't see it, but it's here.” Xander said before fading from sight. “Nope, no invisible on invisible sight either. You?”
“We go down.” She told him as she headed towards the stairs. “Have your whip ready.”
“How did..” he started to say before nodding. “I'm really starting to dislike seers.” he muttered
“Me too.” Buffy agreed. “I don't see everything, thank god.”
“Did you see me and Cordy on...” Xander trailed off.
“Only six of the times.” She said with a laugh. “Let's go kill this bastard.”
And they did.
“You shot me.” Xander said to Buffy with a slightly accusatory tone.
“It wasn't me. I was possessed.” Buffy told him.
“I know. You still shot me.” Xander said with a grin. “Come on. Cordelia will let you dance with me once.”
“The bullets” Buffy said.
“It's a small hole, and it didn't go through the skin.” Xander assured her. “Slightly bruised, nothing broken.” He said as he poked a finger through the hole in his shirt.
“Let's go then.” Buffy said with a grin.
“This is nice.” Cordelia said as she and Xander coasted around the dance floor.
“Well you asked me this time. I wanted it to be special, ghosts aside.” Xander assured her.
“It is. Now where do you want to go eat after this?” Cordelia asked him.
“How did you know I was hungry?” He asked with a grin.
“You always are.” She said with her nearly famous smile.
“So, there's something up with the swim team.” he whispered into her ear trying to change the subject.
“What?” she asked. “Sure they've been doing great, but a winning streak is a good thing right?”
“I don't know, it sounds corny, but they smell...fishy.” Xander told her.
“I need more juice!” The elderly man yelled.
Angel flinched as the spittle hit his face.
It hadn't been his idea to go to the Hellmouth, and it hadn't been his idea to be here.
“Dammit Whistler. I'm in Hell.” Angel muttered as he went to get the man his juice.
Angel was the newest orderly in a Senior Citizens home that specialized in dealing with insomniacs.
Robin Wood sighed as he tried to read the inscription his father had discovered.
“You're sure this is part of a cave you found?” Robin asked him.
“Of course I'm sure. Why?”
“I swear this is a mix of Aramaic and a phonetic written form of ancient Egyptian. This place is a vessel of Apocalypse.”
“A vessel to bring about the end of the world?” Sam Zabuto asked.
“No, I think the tenses are different. This Apocalypse... it might be a name.” Robin said.
“Do you think that might be the case?” Sam asked.
“Unless you want one of those meddling bastards in on this, it's my best guess.” Robin said with a sigh.
“We should have Kendra check it out.” Sam said.
“But it could be dangerous.” Robin protested.
“Do you trust her?” Sam asked.
“I do. We've made great progress in her training with Mr. Giles new regimen. It's just... I've a bad feeling Sam.” Robin said.
Sam Zabuto stared into his son's eyes. “All right. I'll call Giles and see if he's willing to send his charge. All right?”
Robin let out a sigh in relief. “Thanks Dad.”
Sam smiled as he picked up the phone.
Outside of the study Kendra stopped listening at the door and moved to the equipment room. She needed to get her gear.
