Licking toads is never a good idea. Ever.

An: This one has earned it's FR18 Rating. It's kind of out there and dark compared to some of my other ones.

Plus, I never really liked Harmony Kendall.

Disclaimer: I don't own Buffy The Vampire Slayer the series or any of the character contained within it. I also don't own The Hypnotoad character that is seen here is from Futurama created by Matt Groening.

Series Timeline: Series 2, Episode: Reptile Boy...

Delta Zeta Kappa House....

“Hey, we got a party crasher.” Chuck said to his Pledge Master as he nodded in the direction of the kitchen.

“I see that.” Steve said. “Tonight was supposed to be brothers only save for the femmes.”

“What should we do?” Chuck asked. “Embarrass the hell out of him before forcing him out the door?”

“We could. We've still got the wig and the outfit we made you wear your first week.” Steve mused.

Chuck nodded. “That sucked. We could do that, or we could get him to lick whatever the hell those things are that Todd has been catching in the Grotto.”

“Those toad things?” Steve asked. “Sure. Let's do that first.” He said with a grin. “Maybe they'll make him sick. Serves him right for intruding on our sacred night.”

“He wouldn't look good as a blond anyways.” Chuck snorted.

“I'm starting to think you spent a little too much time in the outfit Chuckles.” Steve said with a sigh. “Let's get this loser licking toad. Or whatever those things are.”

The underground Grotto after Buffy had killed the snake guy.....

“Oh I do not feel good.” Xander said as he stared at the dead snake demon/god thing. His vision was going in and out of focus and there were some swirling colors in there too.

“You didn't drink anything did you?” Buffy asked. “They drugged me.”

“No. I didn't drink anything.” Xander said. “I might have eaten something that didn't agree with me though.” He admitted.

“Let's get you home.” Buffy said as she helped her friend out of the underground cave that housed the fraternity's evil secret.

“Pretty colors.” Xander mumbled as he lost his balance.

“No more frat parties.” Bufy said. “At least till we're in College.”

None of the escapees noticed the toad like creatures around Machida's lair and their swirling eyes as they stared at the dead beast. With their natural predator and source of food dead, they didn't have to hide their abilities anymore.

The fraternity house and the grotto underneath it were destroyed months later, the toad like demons had migrated back to the relative safety of their own dimension.

The remaining impact of this little known or documented subspecies would only be known through the acts of one Xander Harris and one other of this species that managed to hop universes to a bizarre alternate earth where it got it's own sitcom, 'Everyone loves Hypnotoad'.

But that, is another story...

The next day....

“What's taking so long in there?” Tony Harris called through the bathroom door. “You're not touching yourself again are you?”

“No! I guess the mystery meat from school isn't agreeing with me.” Xander called as he flushed the toilet that he wasn't currently using.

Something had happened last night and now he could get his eyes to go all... 'weird'. It was probably related to that giant toad the assholes from the night before had made him lick. He could control it for now. If things got any worse he would talk to Giles first. He didn't need Buffy in a 'Slay first, ask questions second' kind of mood. Not after the whole Hyena thing.

He needed more information, and to see if these eyes could do anything else besides go 'crazy'.

A week later....

Xander grinned to himself as he started writing down the 'advantages' he'd received after acquiring the 'aspect' of a demon. His legs had gotten much stronger. This added strength allowed him to kick pretty damn hard. He was already planning to sign up for some kickboxing classes to take advantage of his new ability.

He also had gained an elongated prehensile tongue. Something that had proved useful in certain situations. As had the ability to cling to walls as well as his enhanced flexibility.

But the best thing so far was the hypnotic eyes. Not only could he hypnotize people with a look, he could keep them that way for as long as they were in his presence.

He hadn't tried it on any demons yet, and he was more than a little hesitant to do so, but it worked just great on the jocks of the school as well as some other 'people'. He had promised himself once he realized what this power was that he wouldn't use it on his friends.

Then again, the girl currently giving him a blowjob had never been his friend in the first place.

“Harmony.” Xander said as he looked down at the girl between his knees.

“Yes?” Harmony asked as she stopped what she was doing.

“Are you on any form of birth control?” Xander asked her as he put his notebook back into his backpack.

“I'm on the pill.” Harmony told him.

“That's good news.” Xander said with a grin as his eyes started to glow. “That means we can have some more fun.”

Harmony smiled up at him.

Yes, things were looking up for him. He'd even gotten enough money from the girl to buy the 'Toad' costume from the X-Men Comics for Halloween. While 'Toad' has always been a minion, he would not be.

Now he just needed to 'convince' Buffy that dating a centuries old corpse is a bad idea. He'd been subtly nudging her away from Angel, but it wasn't working all that great. It was almost as if someone else was interfering with his attempts.

He'd just have to spend a little more time alone with her and try harder. Get her to see just how bad an idea a Slayer dating a Vampire really is.

But that would have to wait.

Xander shuddered as he entered Harmony for the first time. It felt incredible, but he really wished she hadn't shouted 'Glory to the Hypnotoad!' when he'd done so.

That would be something he'd have to work on. 'Later' He mused as Harmony started moving up and down. For now, he had far more enjoyable things to focus on.
