Epilogue: The Wiccaning
This chapter is influenced heavily by a couple of different episodes of Charmed, especially the spell.Epilogue: The Wiccaning
Grams had been allowed to come down and make sure everything was safe before the Halliwell ancestors where called down. Nobody Up There wanted the power of that line siphoned off for evil purposes.
Grams had smugly told Xander that the other matriarchs agreed that all of his children would receive Halliwell wiccanings upon their birth.
Now, she stood in the circle of family and friends in the moderately clean attic and called, “I call forth from space and time, the Matriarchs of the Halliwell Line: Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends, our family spirit without end; To gather now, in this sacred place, and help us bring these children to grace.” Dozens of see through women appeared. Grams moved around the circle laying a hand on each infant’s head as she said, “We welcome now, Wyatt Matthew, Phoenix Christopher, and Melinda Alexis Halliwell. Hallie Anya, Harley Ava, Summer Edith, and Amity Grace Harris.” She stepped back into the non corporeal women and went see through herself. “Blessed be.”
They gradually faded.
Then Buffy huffed at Xander, “I can’t believe you let Spike name that sweet baby Summer Edith.”
Xander grinned into his daughter’s hair as the now familiar argument started up around them. Blessed be, indeed.Author’s Note:
So this is the first half of this story. I already have plans for the January through May part, too, so nobody panic.
