Speeches and Handouts
Summary: **Part of the ‘Telling a Different Way’ series** Oz informs the President about the supernatural.
Warning: I don’t know; maybe language and innuendo somewhere along the way.
Timeline: after season 4, but Oz never left.
Challenge: #5745 ‘‘The World is Older Than You Know’...remix’
A/N: Since the first one was so popular, I wrote another Oz speech.
Thanks to my betas: still unbeta’d.

“Demons, old; humans, new. Slayers protect us. Demon goo stains,” Oz said with a small smirk. So small, in fact, that if you didn’t know him, you wouldn’t have realized he was smirking.
President Jack Ryan leaned forward, waiting for the young man to continue. When it was clear that he was done, he looked at his Vice-President, Robbie Jackson and quipped, “That’s my kind of briefing.” He turned back to the group responsible for saving the lives of the doomed group, DRI. It was distressing that they had to give up their childhoods to fight a war nobody even acknowledged. “Anything else?” he inquired, wondering if there was a way to get them to accept his help.
Standing up to give their audience the Scooby-version of the Slayer’s Handbook, Xander grinned easily. “While we decided to let Oz handle the initial intro to vampires, we also came up with a handy-dandy guide that goes into a little more detail without putting you to sleep like the official Council version.”
“Seeing people’s faces when Oz condenses a couple hundred-word speech to only ten words is just too good of an opportunity to pass up,” Xander added as he sat back down.
A/N: The End…for now, anyway.
