First Mission

Title: Collaboration Chapter 8
Author: Nimacu
Summary: Buffy/Harry Potter/Smallville Crossover. Our heroes all receive interesting letters.
Timeframe: Buffy Post season two, age 17, Harry Post book seven age 18, Clark mid-season two age 17? Yes I may be molding it to my own device but hey that’s why it’s fan fiction and not the Jetsons meet the Flintstones
Disclaimer: Not mine, not of it. Even the plot leans a little towards LXG. So again I say I don’t own Buffy, Harry, Clark and any other characters.

As he left the three with the keys to the penthouse and their folders he felt feel a lump forming in his throat. He hadn’t been expecting one but there it was all the same. As he pressed his fingers to summon the elevator to take him to his private office and living quarters he could see a visible tremor in his hand. He wasn’t as young as he used to be.

I wake up one morning and it's passed you by.
Don't know when and you don't know why.
I feel like an old memory hangin' round.
An' man, you've got to face it, it's a young man's town.
I knew this day was comin' all along.
Some why bitch an' moan and say they done you wrong.
Just teach 'em what you know an' pass it on down,
'Cause man, you gotta face it, it's a young man's town.

He’d do anything to be as young and even half as powerful as those kids. But his time had come and gone and his life had a different sort of purpose, not that it wasn’t important…But to be out there again fighting the forces of evil…

It's a young man's town,
Full of young man's dreams.
An' all God's children gotta learn to spread their wings.
An' sometimes you gotta stand back,
An' watch 'em burn it to the ground,
Even though you built it, it's a young man's town.

He was sitting in the board room waiting for Buffy, Harry, and Clark when they arrived. “So I take it you’ve decided to join H.I.?” The three nodded in agreement as he opened his briefcase and brought a folder out, setting it in front of them.

“In this folder you’ll find the specifics of your next mission, in the left hand pocket is your spending allowance and the keys to a car that will be waiting out front for you in thirty minutes. You have until then to be ready.”

You always seem to be the last to know.
Man, that's just the way that the story goes.
There's nothin' you can do when the fields have turned brown.
An' man, you gotta face it, it's a young man's town.

And with that Mr. Wayne exited the conference room leaving the three in stunned silence. It’d had all happened so fast they didn’t know what was going on.

It's a young man's town,
Full of young man's dreams.
An' all God's children gotta learn to spread their wings.
An' sometimes you gotta stand back,
An' watch 'em burn it to the ground.
An' even though you built it, it's a young man's town.
Sometimes you gotta stand back,
An' watch 'em burn it to the ground.
Even though you built it, it's a young man's town.
It's a young man's town.
Instrumental fade out.

They’d sat there in silence for a few more moments before Harry gingerly picked up the folder, looking at it like it might transform into a snake and bite him (not that he hadn’t had school supplies try and bite him before).

Buffy and Clark watched Harry intently as he read it. Finally he sat it down and looked at the other two and just started laughing.

“What’s so funny Mr. Wizard? Buffy had the definite feeling that she and Alien Boy were the object of his amusement.

“According to this little briefing here, you and Clark are going to be pretending to be Todd and Mary Lincoln and I’m Todd’s half witted brother who needs to be committed to a Nursing home in…” he trailed off smiling as he checked the sheet again “Gradyville, Iowa”.

“What kind of crap is that? I thought we we’re supposed to be saving the world. Why do they want us to go there?” She snatched the folder out of Harry’s hands. Rifling through the papers she picked one out and started reading it out loud.

To Our Newest Recruits,
As you’ll find in the rest of the briefing packet you need to find out what kind of demon is feeding off of the mentally and physically ill in Gradyville and kill it. There’s a sheet with the name and address of our closest contact in your packet. Contact her as soon as you get to Iowa. I know it may not seem like it now, but you need to learn to work together before we put the future of the world in your hands.
W.

This time Harry was the only one with something to say. “Like it wasn’t to begin with?”
