AN: No offense to Cheerleaders everywhere, I just live in a country area of Australia and we don’t have Cheer-leading at all so any info I have added to this story is from the episode Witch Season 1 of Buffy. Plus I have seen that Cheer-leading movie that Eliza has been in and I still think it’s one of the strangest things that I have ever seen. I think it was called Bring It On?
Disclaimer: A certain amount of Dialog has been taken from the episode itself to help bring that realistic touch of a Buffy episode to this story. Please enjoy. Oh and I don't own BtVS that Lucky Duck Joss Whedon does.
Title: The Witch – Faith the Vampire Slayer style
Sunnydale High School, the Library
Giles is ranting. “This is madness! What can you have been thinking? You are the Slayer! Lives depend upon you!” he begins pacing “I make allowances for your youth, but I expect a certain amount of responsibility, and instead of which you enslave yourself to this, this...” he stops pacing and gestures to what she is wearing “Cult?”
Faith looks down at the outfit she is wearing; it is a Cheer-leading outfit, then looks back at Giles with a pout. “You don't like the color?”
“I d...” sighs exasperated disbelief, “Do you, um...” he puts some books on a cart “Do you ignore everything I say as a, as a rule?”
“No, I believe that’s your trick.”
Giles pushes the cart to the counter. Faith skips in front of him and poses and says in a strange bubbly yet stern tone of voice, “I told you, I’m trying out for the cheer-leading squad!”
“You have a sacred birthright, Faith. You were chosen to destroy Vampires! Not to . . . wave pompoms at people! And as your Watcher I forbid it!” He moves back to the table.
“And you’ll be stopping me how?”
“Well . . .”
*Beep* *Beep* *Beep*
With a jolt and a gasp Faith shot up from her bed and automatically turned her alarm clock off.
“Whoa . . . that was freaky.” She shuddered in revulsion and disbelief at her bizarre dream, “Me . . . a cheerleader,” Snorts at the thought, “No way in hell!”
She flopped back in her bed for a moment as a wicked thought entered her head. Faith couldn’t stop the evil smirk that spread across her face as she remembered the mixed look of stunned bemusement and bewilderment that had been of the dream Giles face.
“I wonder if it would look that way in real life,” She mused.
Rupert Giles entered the School Library with relief after making his way through the chaos that was an American High School before classes started for the day. There were four kinds of students who used the library; there were the rare students who used books for their school work research instead of using the Internet to look up the necessary information for their assignments, and the occasional student just looking for somewhere to get away from the rest of their classmates, the students who were dragged their by their teachers, and then there was Faith and her friends.
None of which were currently there at the moment which hopefully gave him a bit of peace and quiet before the school day starts.
He made himself a nice cup of tea and had just settled down to relax with a good book when it happened.
Wide eyed he stared stunned at the vision before him; absently thankful that he hadn’t had the cup of tea in his hand otherwise he may have ended up wearing it.
Cautiously he put the book down and looked at his Slayer.
Then blinked again.
He took off his glasses and cleaned them with his every ready handkerchief before putting them back on.
Nope he wasn’t imagining it. Faith really was wearing a Cheerleader’s uniform.
“What on earth . . .?”
The End . . . for now!
