General Landry had barely had time take off his coat when the phone rang “Have you seen the news” The President asked. His blood ran cold the president didn’t usually phone him at home. He knew that one day the truth about the SGC would get out. It amazed him that it hadn’t happened before, that the public continued to swallow the increasingly weak and outlandish cover stories.

“Surprise” Faith laughed as she jammed her cold hands down the back of Robin’s neck. He pulled her down on to the sofa Faith straddled him and used her slayer strength to pin him to the sofa. Not that he minded it was always the same when Faith came back from patrol. She had taken some of the newer slayers for a sweep.
Just when Robin was about to stop thinking all together Faith stopped “FUCK!” she exclaimed.
Robin was about to say something crude when he saw what Faith was seeing and all pleasurable thoughts fled from his mind.New Delhi, India

He sat down at the bar and ordered something strong he really didn’t care what; He had just told another family that their daughter was destined to die. He knew that these girls had a better chance at a life than any slayer before them but they were still destined to die.
He downed the shot in one gulp and indicated for another.

Willow walked into the apartment she shared with Kennedy, placing the bags on the table. She was about to regale her lover with how she had managed to find the special herbs she needed, She looked over at Kennedy who sat frozen on the edge of the bed clutching the phone loosely with one had and flicking through the channels on the remote with the other.

Giles reached up to polish his glasses; his calculations were clearly wrong because according to this the apocalypse was over due. His hand froze halfway to his glasses; the BBC Radio 4 program he had been listening to was interrupted by a special bulletin.
He knew the moment the brief and to the point report was over that somehow the ancient magic that had protected and threatened humanities existence since the beginning had suddenly ended and that his calculations weren’t wrong after all.
Willow and Kennedy materialised in the middle of the library and the phone on his desk rang.Los Angeles, USA
Spike crawled out from under a pile of rubble he stumbled to his feet using a burnt out car to pull him self up. He looked at the burning remains of LA. What Bloody hell had they done?
Gunn hadn’t lasted more than a few minutes, Illyria had launched herself into the battle with a blood thirsty lust for violence and had been lost among the bodies she sent flying, Angel was dust somewhere having failed to take the dragon out.

I’m in every man, woman and child.
I was there at the beginning.
I will be there at the end.
Humanity can no longer deny me.
The Hellmouth was just the beginning, the first of many battles in this war; the final apocalypse. The first true battle of the thousand year war has just begun.

Silly fools how could they even conceive of my plans.
Humanity will no longer deny me.
I am the First
