Introductory Author's Note
I'm reloading chapters 1-11 here; hopefully I've worked out the formatting problem, and you'll get all the thoughts marked in italics, etc.
Also, one small reminder: The Lady Liberty series is AU following the third episode of Season 7 of 'Buffy'. No references will be made to the actual Season 7 storyline. The present-day portions of the story (The Girl in the Mirror, and now Sacred Honor) take place during an alternate Season 7, and during either Book Six or Seven of the Potter series (which has yet to be established).
Willow reaches the end of St. Croix's Watcher Diary, and begins searching for the second Watcher Diary about his Slayer, Liberty Glover, which - according to the Watcher's Council - does not exist. Meanwhile, the Chamber of Secrets opens, Cordelia goes to London, and Angel sends Willow some Hanukkah gifts.
All characters and locations taken from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series, the Harry Potter books, or other sources are properties of their respective creators and distributors. Plot and original elements are properties of the story author. All are used without permission and without intent to profit. Story is for entertainment purposes only. Disclaimer ends.
Special thanks to Bridwyn for help with characterizations, writing (particularly toward the middle of the tale), and plot, and to my betas for repeatedly looking this over (it's been brewing in draft form for nearly six months).
