A*N*- Was watching King Arthur last night and I saw how much Galahad looked like Xander, so thus this as a result. King Arthur is Bruckheimer's baby, BTVS belongs to Joss. 'Nuff said.
Galahad looked around at his surroundings, confused as to where he was. The last thing he remember was being run through with a Saxon sword. This could not be Artorius’ Christian Heaven, it was not as he had described it. Galahad wondered if this could be some sorcery of the Merlin’s.
Galahad turned, drawing his sword, startled. Willow didn’t stop in time and her eyes widened when she stopped and the sword was in her head. Galahad backed away quickly.
“What matter of creature are you?”
Willow blinked looking down at herself.
“I think I’m a ghost, I dressed as one for Halloween.”
Galahad frowned, this Lady made absolutely no sense.
Willow looked up and saw his confusion.
“Oh! I dressed up as a ghost tonight, and suddenly I am a ghost and my friend dressed up as a knight and now he’s you.”
This made some sense to Galahad but not much. He wanted to pass on, he wanted to join Dagonet wherever his spirit had ended up.
“How do we end this sorcery so my spirit may pass on?”
Willow shook her head.
“I’m not sure, but I know who to ask.”
Galahad swung his sword at the blonde demon known as Spike and missed when the creature ducked out of the way. He felt a wave of something pass over him and he paused.
He turned his head and saw his lover standing there with his arms crossed.
“Leave the boy Galahad it’s time to go.”
The dark haired knight smiled and nodded and walked towards Dagonet. The taller brunette put an arm around his shoulders and kissed him soundly. Both spirits disappeared and Xander was left blinking away memories. Spike smirked and was about rip the boy’s head off when he heard a noise behind him. The Slayer stood up, the brunette wig slipped off and she smirked at him.
“Hi Honey, I’m home.”
She swung at Spike, knocking him into a crate. The blonde vampire snarled at her before running off back to his sire. She turned back to her friends and the small children.
“Everyone all right.”
“Willow disappeared, I assume back to her body.”
Buffy nodded and turned to Xander who had sheathed the sword and was looking at the ground, deep in thought.
The brunette looked up, startled.
“Yeah? Oh…yeah I’m good.”
Buffy frowned. He didn’t sound to sure about it, in fact he looked kind of sad.
“Let’s get these kids back to school and go let Gile’s know everyone’s okay.”
Xander started herding his kids, quiet, and contemplative as he came to terms with the extra memories. He didn’t know that knights in that era were mostly bisexual, Bors had been with Vanora, Artorius with Gueneviere, but Lancelot and Gawain had slept together a few times, Dagonet and Galahad were different. It had seemed that Dagonet had always been there for the young brunette. Xander wondered if he and Jesse would’ve ended up in a relationship like that if it hadn’t been for Darla. He had always known he was bi, he and Jesse had fooled around a couple of times. Xander wondered if he’d ever find his Dagonet…
Xander entered the library and sat down. Willow was there already in the outfit she had on under her ghost costume, talking to Giles. Angel came in with Buffy.
“Well, it’s a good thing everyone is all right. There were no adverse aftereffects of the spell was there?”
Willow poked the table with her hand, giggling when it touched the surface.
“100% solid, Giles.”
The blond huffed.
“Back to normal, thank God. Though I think the French test tomorrow is in the bag.”
“Your mother will be glad to hear it.”
Buffy stuck her tongue out at him.
“What about you Xander?…..Xander?”
“He’s been spacey ever since the spell ended.”
Xander looked up.
“Sorry Giles, I have all of Galahad’s memories. I think I can use a sword now…and I know I can use a bow.”
“A Sarmatian knight, in the Service of Rome. Served under Artorius Custis.”
Giles froze and slowly looked at Xander.
“Did you say Artorius Custis…as in King Arthur?”
Xander frowned looking confused.
“I don’t remember him ever being a King of anything while Galahad was alive.”
“This is intriguing, I’ll have to do some research and see with what I can come up with for this Galahad.”
Xander nodded and got up.
“I’m going to head home, see you guys tomorrow.”
