AN: Some time line manipulation. Let’s just act like Connor and Dawn are “born” at the same time. Connor is 16 and Dawn is 15 at the start of this story. Dawn was conceived during the band candy episode. The monks turned her into a teenager to contain the key. Giles never left. Giles went to Hogwarts. His father was council and his mother was a pureblood witch. He and Ethan were expelled for summoning Eyghon. Xander and Anya were friends nothing more at the time of her death.
The Scoobies currently living in Giles’ family manor in Bath, England included Xander, Willow, Dawn, Oz, Connor, Faith and Giles. Buffy lived in Italy with Andrew. She was happily retired from active duty but she had separated herself from the Scoobies including her sister. Dawn being Giles minor daughter stayed with him. Faith had moved in after a bad breakup from Robin, in which she found him in bed with Kennedy. Willow had arrived with Faith. Xander had spent a few months in Africa collecting/training new minis. He had wondered with no goal in mind and run into Oz. The One Who Sees had found 224 minis in less than 3 months. Oz had joked that finding Slayers was Xander’s super-power. Xander had dragged Oz home with him. Giles was in his element running the New Slayer and Watcher Council affectionately nicknamed NSWC by the Scoobies and minis.
“Sodding hell!!” exclaimed Dawn as she dropped the book she had been holding while she gazed out the window.
“You spent way too much time with Spike Dawn Patrol,” teased Xander.
Faith seeing Dawn’s confused expression asked “What’s the what?”
“There is a very large owl heading at us,” replied Dawn as she pointed out the window.
The owl had not veered course as the Scoobies thought it would. It tapped on the window with its beak.
“What should I do? You think I should let it in or should we..” Dawn was silenced from her babbling as Xander opened the window. The owl landed on his shoulder and held the leg with letter attached out to Dawn.
“Dawnie, I think she just wants you to take the letter,” remarked Xander scratching behind the owl’s ear tuft. When Dawn did nothing but dodge behind Faith, who was snickering and Willow, who was giggling, he gently removed the letter saying “Thank you,” to the owl. Oz with his typical half smile offered the owl a piece of jerky which it took after giving a gentle hoot. The letter was addressed to
