July 23, 2002: I know I said there wouldn’t be a second chapter on this one,
but the idea in chapter 2 just wouldn’t leave me alone. So I wrote it.
The X-Men and all related characters belong to Marvel Comics and Fox.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and all related characters belong to Josh Whedon, Mutant
Enemy Productions, and Fox.
Gilmore Girls and all related characters belong to the WB
Nicholas Graydon belongs to me, if for some twisted reason you want to use him, please ask first.
There is no profit being made from this effort, it is strictly done for
Yes, the song really exists, and brownie points to anyone who can tell me what movie it's featured in.
This takes place shortly after “Taking the Initiative,” and will act as a springboard for the next set of stories. As such, there will be no further chapters of “Preludes.” Unless something else occurs to me that just demands to take place in this timeframe.
Special thanks go out to Danel for Beta’ing this sucker for me. I really appreciate it.
I hope everyone enjoys it….
