Synopsis: "In every generation there is a chosen one... she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer." Buffy Summers knows this tale by heart, and no matter how hard she tries to be just a "normal girl", she can not escape from her destiny... Thankfully, she is not alone in her quest to save the world, as she has the help of her friends, the hilarious (and surprisingly quite effective) evil-fighting team called "The Scooby Gang". Together, Buffy & co. will slay their demons, survive one apocalypse after another, attend high school and college... and above all, understand that growing up can truly be Hell sometimes... literally.

After a moment, we hear a voice:


The lord giveth, and the lord taketh

away. Ashes, ashes...

She looks up.



... All fall down

There are ten or more vampires walking slowly toward her in

the otherwise deserted street. At the front, maybe ten feet

away, is AMILYN.

Amilyn is a grinning jackal, a servant to the Vampire-King.

His garb is a rotted approximation of a courtier's livery. He

ambles toward the Slayer, giggling, as she stands.

Behind her is LOTHOS, the Vampire-King. His skin is deep white,

and smooth. He wears a long coat -- his dress is not of any

era. He is practically upon her before he speaks.


You must forgive Amilyn. He tends

to drool before supper.

She turns. He smiles, almost lovingly.




You people will never learn.

She swings at him but he grabs her arm. Amilyn laughs

obnoxiously. Lothos grabs the back of the Slayer's head, brings

her to him in a loving embrace.



We can't be stopped. This is our

world now.
