Archiving: Please ask.
Feedback: Constructive Criticism desired.
Summary: This is the result of letting my mind wander unsupervised that drew similarities between a BTVS scene and a similar scene from another series.
AN: The surprise cross will be addressed at the end of the story.
The lights are low at the Bronze as the band starts their next number, "Sugar Water".
Buffy pulls on Xander’s shirt and says, “Let's dance.”
Xander is taken by surprise as he is pulled by his shirt to the dance floor and just mutters, “Ooo-kay.”
Buffy and Xander begin to slow dance.
Her movements are very sensual, almost primal.
Buffy turns around and spoons her back in against Xander, pulling his arms around her waist. She then grinds her hips and shoulders against him much to his delight and confusion.
As the song continues she reaches up with her hand and strokes his face while continuing to grind against Xander in all the right places.
Willow watches in disbelief and Cordelia in a bit of a shock.
Buffy turns to face Xander while still pressing against him with her chest and tilts her head up to his, almost close enough to kiss.
Buffy says breathlessly, “Xander? Did I ever thank you... for saving my life?”
Xander answers bewilderedly, “No.”
Buffy slowly slithers around him until she is behind him, making sure not to lose contact with his body.
Buffy whispers in his ear, “Don't you wish I would?”
Time seems to suspend itself as the music fades away to nothing, followed by the image of the Bronze itself.
Buffy is still pressed against Xander’s back as his vision clears to show Willow and Cordelia standing a ways away in front of him though none of the other Bronze patrons are present. They are dressed in utilitarian grayish uniforms with black calf-high boots.
*Not flattering to either of them,* flashes through his mind.
“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” yells Buffy suddenly, pushing away from him and looking upwards.
“I was doing what you wanted!” she continues to yell. “I was making progress! There was no need to bring them!”
A voice in his head says, “It has been decided to give him a choice. The one has harbored feelings for him for a long time but was too timid to act on them for fear of rejection. Her oft overlooked intelligence has deduced that the situation has now been changed to one more favorable for her. Their children would prove to be very adaptable to repopulating the planet.”
Movement outside the clear enclosure they were in drew their attention to a short, big headed being in a silver, floor length moomoo-like garment. The veins on the hairless bulb of a head throbbed as more words were spoken directly to his brain, and presumingly the others as well.
“The dark haired female is also highly intelligent and exhibits alpha-like characteristics that would also create adaptable and assertive offspring. While she has often thought of him as a potential mate, she normally dismisses the idea due to their personality clashes though those seem to fall into a class of sexual byplay. She resents the idea of being made a brood-cow but is not overly adverse to him playing the part of the bull.”
“It’s not fair,” yells Buffy again. “I was doing what you wanted! You didn’t give me a chance to finish! I . . . aaaiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”
Her rant is cut off as flames seem to appear around her and then she disappears along with her scream of agony.
“Buffy!” shouts Xander, while Willow and Cordelia look on in shock.
“What did you do to her?” he angrily asks the being outside the enclosure.
Again the voice in his head says, “She is being disciplined. When she has learned her lesson, she will be returned in time for you to make your choice.”
AN: In case anyone doesn’t know the crossover with the original Star Trek Pilot “The Cage” which later became the two-part episode “The Menagerie” for the Original Series. Obviously I don’t own the rights to either.
AN: This is a one shot as I really don’t know where to take it beyond this point.
