Bane Of Anubis
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! Continuation of Visionary Previously in Visionary on Buffy the Goa’uld Slayer 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. “The Tarithna is
well known to the system lords, Tarithna means Hunter of debased ones, and is
one of only two positions respected by all Goa’ulds, indeed it is rumoured Ra
once killed a minor system lord who attempted to control the Tarithna, and that
the Tarithna commanded an army of Jaffa on this world
” Teal’c replied. “Garage door openers, if you
don’t send us the correct code, the door stays closed” O’Neill gestured towards
the iris over the StarGate, “and you splat” “Yikes, now that is how you deal with door
to door salespersons” Da’mos turned as Buffy
approached and a shockwave of energy hit her again, throwing her back into
O’Neill, they crashed into the wall and down to the ground, grunting in pain.“You know, I think maybe this
ones a Goa’uld…..” Buffy said, as she crawled painfully back to her feet.“You know, you may just be
right” O’Niell looked over to where Da’mos was torturing an SF with his ribbon
device, “Yep, that’s a Goa’uld…” “Xander” she said slowly “Yeah, buffster?” “We have a prophecy” Buffy replied. “Shit, I hate it when that happens”"Excuse me? Prophecy?"
O'Neill added, his tone disbelieving."Prophecy" Buffy and Xander
confirmed, their tones resigned. “Twice she falls and twice
she shall arise, Eternally chosen Guardian and destroyer of the First gate Champion of the Heavens Gate In the hour of her greatest deed, The Fallen Angel, cast out by the Host and
Choirs, Shall send forth the Legion, the blight, The plague on all humanity, Of two minds she shall arise, Of one she shall fall, And darkness will encompass all” “Exactly how many ships are
we looking at?” O’Neill asked. “At least three motherships, and 14 Ha’taks,
they are amassing at Tyrendula and we expect them to be ready to leave within
the next three days” Jacob replied, his voice tense, “There is no way that you
and your allies will be able to take that lot out in a fleet action, so it will
have to be a covert assault as usual” And now on Buffy the Goa’uld Slayer
Thor’s ship flashed through
hyperspace towards Tyrendula at speeds no Goa’uld vessel could hope to match,
the two SG teams within practising and planning their assault with the ease of
“So, we sweep in, set explosives on the largest
ship we can find Naquadah stores and get out before they blow with the force of
a small sun, hopefully taking several other ships with them?” O’Neill replied,
“Yep” Buffy cheerfully responded, “Of course,
seizing a hat as a getaway craft would finish the plan off nicely don’t you
“I believe a hat would not be
an appropriate transport back to the SGC,
Honoured warrior” Teal’c commented, “however if you refer
to a Hat’ak,
I am sure Hammond would be pleased if we could actually
manage to keep possession of such a ship”
“Be a first” O’Neill commented.
“Getting ambitious aren’t we, Buffy?” Xander
grinned, “I mean an enemy warship? Slightly bigger than the weapons we have been
salvaging over the years”
“No Xander, ambitious would be going after a
mothership…” Willow trailed off a gleam came into the eyes of Buffy and the
Colonel, “Not that we could get a mothership, I mean hey, gotta be a couple of
thousand soldiers on one of those, right?”
“Right” Carter nodded, shooting worried looks
at the colonel and the Tarithna. She quietly breathed a sigh of relief as the
gleams faded from the eyes.
“It’s not as if we could just gas the entire
ship after all…” Willow continued.
Carter groaned, this was not of the good.
Willow had just given the Colonel the piece he needed to put a plan together
that, even by SG-1 standards, could be considered crazy.
“Wonder what Hammonds face would be like
if we showed up with a mothership?” Xander chuckled.
Carter could have cheerfully shot him for that,
as the gleam in the colonels eyes grew brighter.
“Major Carter, I am feeling most worried”
Teal’c’s voice was pensive as he looked at the gleam in the Tarithna’s and the
“Ditto” Carter wryly responded.
“Indeed” Giles added, his glasses being
immortalwizardelf-fan - not necessarily. That was a magical death and a very high energy one at that.
It could quite easily have 'short circuited' her immortality, stopping her reviving,
which is why Giles isn't ruling it out.
The Star Wars quote in Visionary was from the Phantom Menace, during Anakin's Podrace.
