Summary: This is my pride and joy - a 200 or so page novel I wrote in two large parts. It focuses primarily on Xander and Angel but as the story progressed I expanded the focus to much of the core group. This is definitely epic, and I definitely cannot take credit for all of it… much of the story idea has been taken from a plethora of other works-"The Exoricist" by William Peter Blatty, "Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon" by Naoko Takeuchi, "Magic Knight Rayearth" by CLAMP, "Final Fantasy VII" by Squaresoft, among the most prevelant! But hey, it's fanfiction to begin with, so I might as well mooch off other realms as well! No, I'm just kidding… this is fairly original and I am proud of the year or so it took to write. WARNING!! This story is extremely graphic and intense in nature. Please don't email me with angry cries of hatred, hehe…
In part 1, Nightscape, Buffy and the Sunnydale crew are called to L.A. when a horrible, grisley event occurrs at Angel Investigations. As lives are taken and friends are sacraficed, Angel and Buffy must face both a demonically possessed Xander and the conclusion that the only way to save their friend might be by killing him. In part 2, Bloodlands, the truth behind Xander's possession becomes slowly apparent when an ancient evil, trapped in a Slayer's body, appears from the folds of time and space to destroy humanity and reclaim the earth for the Old Ones. As the battle stretches from Sunnydale to L.A. to the shores of Britain, the Scooby Gang unlocks a mystery that reveals the primal nature of the Slayers themselves, the truth about the origen of evil on Earth, and the shocking connection between the two. Xander stands in the epicenter of it all, and as tragedy and violence bring him to his greatest fear, he will experience his greatest triumph.
Summary: AUTHOR'S NOTES: Much less violent and graphic than "Nightscape," although it is enclosed in the same universe as that story. If you haven't read "Nightscape", all you need to know is that Xander was possessed by a demon and they never figured out why. This story was inspired by Naoko Takeuchi's Japanese manga series, "Bishoujo Senshi Seramuun Serasutasu".
