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.
“What's going on guys?” Xander asked a sombre looking Oz and Willow.
“Someone got mauled last night.” Willow said.
“Okay. Where?” Xander asked before turning to Buffy who shrugged with an 'I've got nothing' look on her face.
Willow told him.
“You call your uncle?” Xander asked.
“Full moon, they stayed in.” Oz said.
“Right. We can do the scene of the crime thing later. We'll find out what did this.” Xander assured them.
“Well the reality was weirder than the stuff I thought was going on. He had a second scent on him, I thought he was cheating on his girlfriend with another dude.” Xander said, causing both him and Oz to shudder a bit.
“Well, still that crosses another off our classic movie list.” Willow said cheerfully. “We've already gotten Creatures from the black lagoon, giant mantis, a mummy, ghosts, Frankenstein's monster, a homicidal robot and some other things...”
“She made a checklist.” Oz explained.
“Oh.” Buffy said. “Who's up for a sushi run?”
“I could eat.” Willow and Oz said in unison.
“Fine. Make the call, I'll pick it up.” Xander sighed.
“Hey, don't knock it. You'd make a killing doing pizza delivery.” Buffy consoled him
“Only if I'd been everywhere I need to go.” Xander returned. “Go call, I'll see if Cordelia wants in on it too.”
“Do you know what you're asking?” Xander asked Cordelia.
“I do. It's a bit of a challenge but I think we can do it.” She told him.
“I really hate schmoozing.” Xander whined.
“I really want to be Homecoming Queen.” Cordelia told him.
“Fine. Where do I put my name in for king?” He asked her.
“Let me show you.” Cordelia said with her million dollar smile.
“So we lost. Come on I'll get you some ice cream.” Xander consoled his girlfriend.
“I just can't believe I lost to those two... whores. Both of them! You lost too! Why aren't you mad?” She demanded.
“It helps that I don't care what they think.” Xander told her. “Seriously, you're better than this...” Xander said as he gestured at the two girls having a not so subtle tug of war for the crown.
“I guess Buffy was right in not entering.” Cordelia said with a sigh.
“She usually is.” Xander said with a shake of his head. “Come on, one last dance.”
“One more.” she agreed.
Mayor Wilkins sighed as he wiped down his hands. Due to the decrease in regular demonic activities that he'd had to worry about cleaning up after, he'd had more time to focus on things going on within his own group. His own deputy mayor had been slowly chickening out. He'd been dealt with which meant he didn't need a sacrifice to Lucronis this decade. A traitor was almost as good as babies to that particular beast.
As it stood Wilkins was getting worried about the upcoming days. He'd managed to secure a lock of the Slayer's hair early on into her time here on the Hellmouth and that little bit of her was enough to block any Slayer dreams concerning him. It had been a long standing policy to try and block seers of any kind from divining what he'd been up too this past century. It had worked, to a point. His staff had managed to contain the rest.
He would Ascend. Nothing would stop him. Not when he was so close.
“Come on, please!” Xander begged.
“You really want this don't you?” Cordelia asked him.
“More than anything this Christmas!” Xander pleaded.
“Fine, I'll go caroling.” She agreed.
“Thanks!” Xander said hugging her.
“Can't... breathe...” Cordelia choked.
“Oh, sorry.” Xander said, letting go. “I have to tell the others!” Xander yelled before running off.
“Why were those blind guys twitching like that?” Cordelia asked her boyfriend.
“Well, they were evil. I guess they can't appreciate good music.” Xander said with a shrug. In the distance he could hear Buffy taking care of the demonic worshipers.
“Did we have to really go across the whole town singing?” Cordelia asked him.
“One night, Cor. One night of spreading Christmas Cheer. Was it really that bad?”
“No, but my feet are killing me.” Cordelia said.
“I'll give you a foot rub to end all foot rubs later okay?” Xander promised her.
“You'd better.” She said with a grin.
“I want to join you on your patrol tonight.” Joyce said to her daughter.
“Why?” Buffy asked her mother.
“Just a feeling.” Joyce said with a shrug. “I can have those too can't I?”
“You can.” Buffy agreed. “But just remember that what you see isn't always what's real.”
“I'll take that into consideration. Will Xander be joining us on this little trip?” Joyce asked.
“Of course. He's got my back. He always does.” Buffy said.
“What could do this to children?” Joyce demanded of her daughter.
“Mom... those aren't kids.” Buffy told her mother. “Look again.”
Joyce stared as a fireball engulfed the two children causing them to fuse together into a large demon who was screaming in pain.
“What was that?” Joyce asked her daughter after the demon died.
“A myth come to life.” Buffy said quietly. “Come on, I feel like some cookie dough.”
“What.... what would have happened if you didn't kill that?” Joyce asked her daughter.
“I saw myself and two others tied to stakes and burned alive. You threw the first torch.” Buffy said quietly.
“I wouldn't do that.” Joyce said.
“I know, that did.” Buffy said with a nod to the dead demon. “Come on, let's go home. Xander can cover the rest of the night.”
Joyce hugged her daughter and the two went straight home.
Above them, Xander wiped his eyes. “Damn mushy moments.” he muttered before moving on to his next target.
Giles sighed as he filled the syringe. He really didn't want to do this, but the council was breathing down his neck and there was the implication that they'd get him deported if he didn't go through with this. He was torn between his half hearted allegiance to the council and his desire to be here to help a girl who was drifting further and further from his guidance.
“You're not really going to try doing that to me are you?” Buffy asked him from a shadowed section of the library.
“I don't really have a choice do I?” He asked her.
“Well you could always lie.” Buffy told him.
“They'd know Buffy. They're coming in a few days.” Giles said quietly.
“I know.” Buffy said as she sat down on a chair and held out her arm. “Go ahead.” She said quietly.
“You know what this will do to you don't you?” Giles asked her.
“Yes, I do. Make sure that the vampire is secure. He'll escape if he isn't.” Buffy told him.
With a nod, Giles injected Buffy with the solution.
“She passed.” Quentin Travers said in disbelief.
“She did. Satisfied?” Giles asked him.
“You warned her didn't you?” Travers accused.
“You haven't been reading my reports have you? About her Slayer dreams? The deaths she's seen?” Giles asked his 'superior'.
“You mean she's seen....” Travers trailed off.
“No less than seven of these so called 'trials' and their outcomes. She didn't need me to warn her, so I didn't.” Giles told him. “You never even considered that did you?”
“No. I didn't.” Travers admitted. “Goodbye Giles.”
“Hey Jack, didn't anyone tell you that zombies should wear some cologne?” Xander asked Jack O'Toole.
“What are you on about Harris?” Jack asked him, a little nervous.
“You've been dead for what, a week? Week and a half?” Xander said tapping his nose. “It's subtle, but its there. Why are you still walking around?”
“That's my business Harris.” Jack snarled at him.
“You're dead. Why the hell are you still in school? Shouldn't you be stumbling around looking for brains to eat?” Xander asked him.
“Back off Harris.” Jack said while pulling a knife.
“Oh, you shouldn't have done that.” Xander said with a smile.
“Oh? What are you going to do about it?” Jack countered.
Xander grinned. It wasn't a nice one.
“Heads up!” Xander called as he tossed the head over the fence.
“Harris, you can't just leave me here!” Jack screamed. “What the... those don't look like dogs! Harris!” Jack screamed.
Satisfied with what he'd heard, Xander headed back to the library. They had a sisterhood to stop after all.
A few days after Xander had dealt with the zombie, and the whole gang had dealt with the sisterhood of Jhe, Cordelia showed up on the Summer's doorstep.
“What' wrong?” Joyce asked the crying girl.
“My parents. My dad's been arrested for Tax fraud and my mom left for Mexico. I don't have anywhere to go.” Cordelia said.
“Oh, dear.” Joyce whispered. “We don't have much room, but you're welcome here.”
Cordelia nodded and Buffy's mom dragged the poor girl inside.
Buffy came up to Cordelia and hugged her. “It'll be okay.” She told her.
“I hope so.” She sobbed before heading upstairs to go find her boyfriend.
Graduation was a short distance away and the teens were all looking forward to the end of the year. They'd stopped a couple of near apocalypses but there was still the hint of something lurking in the background.
The problem was, none of them knew what it was. Everyone had been running on high alert for a few days until the usual time for Apocalypse season passed. The teens were finally relaxing and looking forward to finally getting out of High School.
“So how do I look?” Xander asked Cordelia as he spun around in his graduation robes.
“Like a dork.” She told him with a grin. “We'll be free after this. You still planning to go on that road trip?”
“Yep. I've got a car picked out and everything. You still willing to come with?” Xander asked her.
“I've got nothing left for me here. I don't think I can be an actress... People would notice the changes eventually.” Cordelia said quietly.
“You're not a freak Cordelia, you're special.” Xander defended. “What about trying to get a scholarship?”
“I can see myself being a doctor, but not here.” Cordelia said. “I just can't believe we're graduating! No more High School, no more Snyder, no more Harmony.”
“She has gotten kind of mean lately. Want me to put Nair in her shampoo before we graduate?” He asked her.
Cordelia laughed at the image. “She would deserve it. But no, once this is over, it'll be over for good.”
Everyone was sitting in their assigned seats at graduation. They were watching Mayor Wilkins give the commencement speech when both Xander and the Mayor started acting ill. Xander fell to the ground clutching his knee when the mayor collapsed.
Xander lost his hold on his form and reverted back to his base form when he began to become surrounded by a red glow as the sky grew dark.
That's when hell really broke loose.
