"A new universe, a new city, a new store." These words barely prepared me for the thoroughly original and enjoyable series The Key's Watcher by Tara Keezer. I have not only enjoyed the excellent characterizations of well loved BtVS personas, but marveled at Tara's equal adeptness with Laurell K. Hamilton's world of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter and it's inhabitants. My image was inspired by a particular scene from The Key's Watcher 2: Birthday Girl. Giles - "I'm not sure how long it took me to gather everything, then cast the spell, but when I looked up from the map, Ms. Blake was standing there with her gun pointed at my heart. Clearly, she hadn't intended harm when she came in, but if she tried to shoot me within my own wards, it would go very badly for her. "Don't be silly," I said, as if to a child. I allowed a whisper of power to engulf the gun and smiled when her hand opened reflexively to release a dove. It was a trick I remembered from our defeat of Adam."
I chose Rebecca Herbst as Anita because of how LKH says Ms. Blake is viewed by most people at first meeting. Anita is all attitude and inner power. On the surface she is the tiny girl-next-door. The BtVS screen captures are from http://www.alanna.net/screencaps/ I downloaded this picture of Ms. Herbst from http://www.thecanvas.innermoppet.com/gallery.html All work done in Adobe Photoshop for pleasure not profit.
