I am going to try to stick to some form of Anarchy's story line, but not promising anything, especially in the beginning of the story.
The story came to me as I started watching the series :)
I do not own Buffy or the Sons of Anarchy, or any other character that I might use. But will be mainly Sons of the Anarchy. I am also going to play it loose with times lines and stuff so that Buffy is 3 years younger the Jax. The rest will be explained later ;P
Three years, it’s been three years since the end or the beginning, really depends on how you see it. But to me it’s a new beginning, a new chance. Oh sure the first year was a mess with everyone trying to figure out where to go what to do. The rebuilding of the council was not fun and after nearly deleting some vital information I was tossed out and told to do something else. I tried helping the mini slayers, but some of them really have a bad hero worship thing going, so that didn't last. So I decided to study. Not really knowing what I wanted to do, I applied for a bunch of things and finally ended up as a physiotherapist, who would have thought.
I need to go back to America soon, having done most of my studies here. I still needed to do my year of community service, which is the reason why I am here, at the London head quarters waiting. Okay fine, I didn't wait, kinda just went straight up to where Giles is, while the receptionist is trying to get me to stop, but me and patience just don't go, apparently Giles is on the phone, with...Dawn...oh crap, maybe I should have left a message saying that I was leaving, too late now.
"Yes Dawn, I will do my best; she will be fine I'm sure..." as he trailed off, I barged in.
BANG!! "WHAT the, Buffy! Yes Dawn… she is here… I know I know… hold on". Dawn must have really been giving Giles an ear full because he was glaring at me all the while trying to placid Dawn, and now it seemed he can’t anymore and passed the phone to me.
"Buffy, Dawn wants to speak with you." I went closer, put the phone on silent and asked
"Tell Dawny I will phone her later, pleeeeaaaaassssseeeee!" I begged, with puppy dog eyes and all the works.
Giles look as at me with a raised eyebrow as I handed the phone back to him "Hi Dawn, your sister seemed to have run off again... yes she looks fine... I will get her to call you as soon as I see her again... Yes! I promise... okay.... Bye Dawn. Good night." Putting the phone down, he turned to me as he started cleaning his glasses. Ah oh Giles was irritated, not good.
"You want to tell me why I had a frantic Dawn calling me, because you are ‘missing’, not to mention the Rome branch of the council is in a panic and turning the place upside down? You are lucky that Dawn was the first person they called and she had enough sense to tell them not to call any of the other, otherwise you would have had the whole "Scooby" gang looking for you and you know they have been twitchy since you got kidnapped last year..."
“Oh No! You do not get to bring that up!! It was not my fault, that my drink was spiked!! How was I supposed to know, considering I thought I was immune to most drugs, and I was on holiday in a nice little tourist resort!! With beaches and all, and the worst part was that they did it just because they thought I was some rich heiress, not because I am the slayer, so no you do not get to bring that up, it had nothing to do with the supernatural! Plus I wasn’t the only one who was kidnapped, there were other rich people, and it was just the one time!! I lost count on the number of times Dawn was kidnapped!!" I snapped back.
"Buffy, you left on that 'vacation' without letting anyone know where you were going and then suddenly we get a call demanding ransom of you! Do you know how freaked out everyone was? Not to mention how hard it was on Dawn, Xander, Willow, Faith and I? I had to convince Xander not to leave Africa, that everything is under control. Faith was ready to bust some of the mini slayers for failing to follow you and Dawn was crying. I had to use the emergency vile to get Willow back from her travels and then breaking it to her that you were kidnapped. She thought I was joking..." Oh no, he did not get to use the guilt trip thingy.
"But Giles, I was fine, the drugs left my system sooner than they thought and I got away."
"Eventually got away, but it still took you a week."
"That's not fair, they kept on drugging me, how was I to know how long it was, plus see,” As if to make a point I twirled around, “no harm done."
"Buffy my dear, I love you like a daughter, but I don't think my heart will take another scare, so please let someone know where you are."
Darnit he is looking at me with the tired scared and caring eyes, which is making me feel all guilty inside... double damn, "Fine!"
Giles let out a sigh and started cleaned his glasses, again.
"Now, you came to see me I believe?"
"Hummm. Maybe this should wait till tomorrow."Maybe now is not a good time to bring wanting to move up, I thought.
"Then you should call Dawn she was quite frantic.“And on second thoughts, now seems perfect.
"No!! I'll talk! Darnit Giles, if I call Dawn now I will never hear the end of it, I will let her sleep on it and phone her tomorrow." Resigning to the inevitable, I took a chair and planted myself down.
"You are just prolonging the inevitable." Giles said as he took his seat behind his desk.
"Yes I know, but I will call her first thing in the morning, I promise." I gave him a tired smile, and he resigned himself to the fact that his slayer is not going to call anyone tonight, might as well see what I wanted. "Fine, what is it that you wanted to tell me my dear?"
Sighing again to myself, I straightened in my chair and looked at Giles before starting on the subject. "Um, not sure how to say this, but I need to go back to the US."
"Why?" This seemed to have gotten Giles’s attention as he frowned a bit as he waited for his slayer to carry on.
"Did I ever tell you what I was studying?"
"Hmm, no I remember you taking a lot of different courses and not settling on one."
"Ya I did do that, but I just finished my last exam on physiotherapy and I need to do a year of community service." Well straight forward always seemed to have worked on him in the past.
"Ahh, I see, well I don't think this will be a problem, though Dawn might throw a fit.“
Well he is taking this better than I thought.
”But I'm sure Faith will love to have you around for awhile, you are more of a challenge then the minis..."
"NO!" Damn, I think that came out a bit more abrupt than I wanted.
Raising an eyebrow, Giles looked at me questionably "Buffy?"
"No, sorry, didn't mean to be that abrupt, but I was hoping to keep me going back to the US a secret. You see I am trying to have another go at normal and having a job and all, and if possible with minimal night life. I'm not abandoning the duties or anything, but you guys have really been twitchy and over bearing since the 'kidnapping' thingy, now I know how Dawn feels, geese. But Giles, I just want to go somewhere that I can go to work make some normal friends and stuff, you know being the sleep deprived intern and all" As I jumped into the explanation, I can’t help but think that this sounds like some of the excuses I used in the past, but oh well, original did not seem to work when you want to move to another continent.
"Buffy, as much I would love to give you this chance, there are still Demons out there that will want to kill the ‘head slayer’, even Faith get at least one attempt on her life once a month on patrol."Ya, by some wannabe newbie who thinks they can make a quick name by going for the Dark slayer, I thought, but was so not going to give Giles more to rant about.
"Please Giles, that's because Faith is sitting on the new Hellmouth and everyone knows where she is. I just want to quietly slip in and settle in some small obscure town that I shouldn't have trouble with, please Giles, I really need this, please."I know I sounded tired, a bit whiny and seem a bit selfish, but with the activation of the minis there really wasn’t much to do around here or anywhere, and the new Hellmouth was Faith's turf now, I didn’t want to intrude on her. I wanted to try my hand at the working-girl thing again, and maybe do some counseling on the side. Thinking back, the counseling work I did in Sunnyhell High was one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever done.
"Buffy, can you give me some time to think about it? And are you planning on letting at least the Scoobies know?"
"Umm, no, am actually hoping that you will be able to give them an excuse like I'm gone on a long term mission or something. "I started to fidget, yes it’s not a good idea to not let people know where you are, but it’s not like it’s going to be forever, hmm. ”Look Giles, I will tell them eventually, once I get settled and stuff, maybe in 6 months time?” I asked hopefully.
“I thought so; let me think of it for awhile, would you?" Giles sighed as he started to organize this desk, which I took as my cue to leave, so I stood up and started to go. “Ya sure, I’m here till the end of the week, then I need to go pack and everything. Night Giles” and I start to move towards the door, and as I reached the door I hear Giles ask.
"Night Buffy... by the way do you know which town you going to yet?"
"Hum... some town called Charming. I think it’s in California." I answered back and left.
Charming will be up next.
