For the record I do not own, nor do I claim ownership of
characters or concepts from BTVS or SG-1.Nor do I own the word Tarithna, this belongs to Bktheirregular If you Like, please review! Chapter 1: Dreams
Buffy thrashed around in her bed, the
nightmare coursing through her mind making her cry out in fear and pain. Flashes
of pyramids, of demons who took humans as hosts, of cultists in funky armour
passed through her mind. Then Buffy saw her, a slayer leading an army, a host of
humans against the cultists, screaming ‘false gods’ for all to hear. The humans
behind her taking up the chant, as demons, even vampires joined the slayer in
pushing this vile creature and his followers off their world.
Then the scene changed, it felt newer somehow,
like there was less age to what she saw. A massive black man bearing the seal of
Apothis pointing a staff of some kind at humans cowering below him, an older man
in fatigues shouting
“I can save these people, help me!”
Pleading, “Help Me”
“Many have said that” the black man says,
turning and firing at his fellow warriors of Apothis “But you are the first I
believe could do it!”
Flash, a mountain, a tunnel leading deep
within, Cheyenne Mountain Complex in raised letters over the entrance, soldiers
patrolling and guarding.
Flash, the black man back again,
calling her ‘Tarithna’ Slayer,
Flash, the first slayer, “you are
Flash, the tunnel entrance again, zooming in on
the words ‘Cheyenne Mountain Complex’
Buffy awake with a start, breathing quickly,
“Okay” she muttered, “I can take a hint” Chapter 2: Colorado
Buffy stopped her rental car just short of the
mountain, gazing at the entrance; it was exactly as she remembered it from her
dream, ‘except’, she thought with a wry grin, ‘for the guards who were taking a
very active interest in her presence’.
She rolled down her window as a blonde-haired
female approached her car, a patch on her uniform identifying her as Staff
“I’m sorry miss, you can’t park here”
Buffy looked up to the sergeant with a wary
smile, “Do you have a” she thought back to her dream, concentrating hard for a
moment, “Teal’c working here?”
O’Malley stiffened subtly, “Could you please
come to the guardroom while we check for you miss”
“Sure” Buffy said, glancing around at all the
guns which were suddenly not quite pointing at her.
The airman walked quickly into the cafeteria,
looking swiftly around the room, noticing SG-1 sitting in the corner almost
instantly. He walked quickly over,
“Yes Airman” Colonel O’Neill replied, putting
down his spoonful of Jelly.
“Message for Teal’c sir”
Teal’c raised an eyebrow in surprise; it wasn’t
often that an airman came looking for him, usually it was O’Neill, Major Carter,
or Daniel Jackson, the other members of SG-1.
“The guards are holding a young lady up top;
she refuses to identify herself, but insists on a message being brought down to
Teal’c raised the other eyebrow, every female
on planet he knew was either known to the guards, or a member of the SGC.
“The message is, ‘the Tarithna is at the gate’
O’Neill glanced at Teal’c chair as it bounced
off the floor in shock, “Did Teal’c just flat out run out of the room?”
“Err, yeah” Daniel replied, brushing the
remains of Teal’c dinner off of his fatigues.
“Did he look… shocked
“Very” Carter answered, glancing at her CO.
With a clatter of chairs hitting the floor, the
rest of SG-1 ran after their comrade. Chapter 3: Chel Nak! (Very Cool!)
Buffy started as a feeling of someone walking
over her grave passed over her, she glanced up, then at the door of the
guardroom just as it opened and Teal’c steeped through.
“Are you the one who claims to be the Tarithna?”
“Yes” Buffy replied simply.
Teal’c nodded his head slightly and brought his
hands out from behind his back, handing Buffy an iron bar he had grabbed on his
way up. Buffy took it just as O’Neill, Carter and Daniel Jackson crashed through
the Guardroom doors, seeing Buffy with the pipe, O’Neill assumed the worst and
grabbed his pistol out of its holster, pointing it at the petite slayer.
“Alright, put the bar down now, and no-one gets
Buffy quirked an eyebrow in amusement, glancing
at O’Neill, before bending the iron bar around until both ends touched, she
passed it over to Teal’c as Daniel pushed O’Neill and Carters mouths closed with
a click of meeting teeth.
Teal’c attempted to bend the bar even further,
and failed, he looked at the diminutive figure of the Slayer, and spoke just two
Buffy pretended not to hear O’Neill’s muttered
reply, “Most cool he calls it, looks like she blow over in a strong wind, and
yet she just bends iron bars, oh yeah, female superman at large”
