Reviews: Please leave reviews guys. Let me know if you like it, hate, or have any questions.
Grammatical Errors: there are probably a lot of them, seeing I don’t have a beta reader.
Writing Style: I’m American so there will be a mix of both Scooby slang and British slang in there.
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, and Lara Croft Crossover. And who know others might be added into the mix later on.
Time line: Mostly major AU. The HP gang will be starting in 2001, instead of 1991.
Scooby Gang is probably, if I did my math correct, is going to battle the first 2008, I think. Maybe.
Lara Croft is well who knows. We will play this one buy ear.
Summary: What would happen if the daughter of Buffy and Spike came to Hogwarts? What if Lady Lara Croft, infamous Tomb Raider, raised her? She grew up knowing magic and loving technology, what happens when she’s sorted into Slytherin. Will she convince her fellow snakes that not all muggles are bad and to think for themselves. Or will the Snakes devour her from beneath?
Full background information on the character in this story is available here in the series summary
My name is Amanda Summers Croft, and I’m 11 years old. I live in ‘the Land of Tweed’ at Croft Manor, with my Aunt Lady Lara Croft, Uncle Bryce, and Uncle Hillary our butler.
Looking back on my life so far, well… just see for yourselves.
I’ve always been different from other kids. Not because I’m half vampire/half Slayer either. Oh, did I forget to mention that my dad is the notorious Master Vampire Spike. ¼ of the Scourge of Europe. Or that my mom is The Slayer, who is currently guarding the Hellmouth, Buffy Summers. I guess not. However, now that I think about it, it probably doesn’t help.
You’re probably wondering how that bloody happened, aren’t you? Well from what we can figure is that when the Master drowned my mom, her soul was sent back in time. There she fell in love with my dad, they got horizontal, and 9 months later, hello world.
Yea so that means I’m only like 5 ½ to 6 years older than my mom, who has absolutely no idea I even exists. Bloody peachy.
Then according to dad she just poofed, not poofed as in vampire poof, but as ‘now you see me and now ya don’t‘ thing. We think that’s when Xander brought her back to life. And now I’m babbling.
So there we were, my dad was panicking and well, I was baby.
Looking to make a long story short or at least shorter, I’m going to give you the highlights.
Dad did the only thing he knew to do, go to his Grand sire the en souled Vampire Angelus or Angel, as he likes to be called.
Once we get to New York where we found Angel in some abandoned warehouse brooding (that’ what dad tells me anyway) there was some major freakage.
While the vampires are all ‘what the bloody hell I’m I going to with a baby’ game, I apparently started to cry. When nothing the two of them did seem to calm me down, dad apparently got so frustrated he accidentally shifted into his game face. Instead of freaking out as I probably should have I thought it was funny. So I laughed. Or at least what considered a laugh seeing I was just a wee little babe. And then we had two dumbfounded vampires.
Once somewhat calmed down the two vampires and a baby made their way to a hotel, where Angel went out and bought some baby stuff for me, while Spike watched me.
(Oh, if you are wondering were Dru is she is on some vision quest that was demanded from her by the stars and Ms. Edith.)
After two weeks in a hotel, Spike and Angel not only were about to kill each other, but they had actually gotten over their weird fear of me. Surprisingly enough they also figured out a plan. When Angel had the bright idea to go see the Oracles. He ended up with good news and bad news.
The good news was now they had a plan and the bad news was that there was a prophecy record at the time of my birth.
Future is Past,
Past is Future,
One light and One dark,
From Athena’s line is the armed warrior goddess
And from Ares’s the god of warfare.
Together when merged a new future will unfold
Giving birth to Janus’s favored daughter;
Chaos will be neither dark nor light
But exists in both worlds
Changes will accrue
Whether wanted or not,
Chaos' daughter will bring clarity
But if she is to fall into the abyss
The world shall crumble beneath her feet,
For she will bring the wrath of the gods down upon us.
In the light we shall prosper
Chaos is neither light nor dark.
Not knowing what to do with the new information both vampire’s decided it was best to tell no one of the prophecy and if someone came for her then they would show them why Angelus and Spike are the most feared vampires in the world.
The plan was that Spike would contact his last mortal descendant to see if I could stay with them.
Found out that Dad’s last name is Croft and his descendant is Lady Lara Croft, a famous archaeologist in England that so happens to know of the supernatural. She is also willing to take baby me in, on the condition that Dad visited, a lot. Which of course Dad had no problems to and even got a promise from Angel to visit.
