An Unnatural Scent - Chapter 8

“Um…” Willow’s voice trailed off as she tried to answer.

“Do you have to have the real Xander?” asked Kennedy.

“Well no,” Erin began, but continues before anyone could get their hops up, “but I need a sample of the original DNA. With Sunnydale being a sinkhole I doubt there is any that isn’t attached to him.”


“So unless you produce something from the original I can’t compare the DNA.”

“How do you test your werewolf DNA then?” Kennedy asked confused.

“My parents kept my first lock of hair, that’s from my pre-wolf days. I’m also an identical twin, whose twin isn’t a werewolf.”

“So there really isn’t anything you can do?”

“I wouldn’t say that,” Xander said speaking up for the first time on the subject.

“What do you mean?” Erin asked softly.

“Angel might still have it.”

“Have what?” asked Willow.

“My b- the original Xander’s blood.”

“Why would Angel have Xander’s blood?” Willow was very confused by this point.

“After Buffy died the second time Xander came to L.A. because he wanted to do something for ‘his girls’ in case he died. He was too embarrassed to tell you all, but he also wasn’t sure about how to go about it, so he asked Angel for help. He didn’t want to owe Angel any favors so he paid for the help, in his own blood.”

“How would that be repayment? Angel doesn’t drink human blood.”

“He doesn’t normally. Vampires can drink different types of blood, but the quality can matter in some cases. Sure he can survive on pig’s blood, or even rejected blood from the Red Cross. But healthy human blood from the Hellmouth, that’s like an emergency get out of dying card.”


“It’s why a lot of vampires still moved to Sunnydale knowing the slayer was there. The blood from a Sunnydale native is like the healthiest blood for vampires. The only better blood is slayer’s blood.”

“Why would Xander know this?”

“Spike. When we- they were roommates, Spike told Xander all about it. Xander thought he was just saying that because he was sick of the pig’s blood Xander was giving him. Since he didn’t really believe it he called Angel who verified it.”

“Blood donations can last about a year at most if frozen,” Erin said interrupting. “What you’re talking about was years ago. Even if he still had the blood I doubt I could still use it.”

“There was also a cooler Xander got Tara to enchant to keep the blood like new.”

“Tara knew about this?” Willow asked.

“No, she thought Xander was using it to store blood for Spike.”


“So I guess the question is, how much of the blood has Deadboy used? I’m guessing not much because of his ‘morals’.”
