XX Origins of Buffy

Summary: **Prequel to 2017 August's FaD Challenge response** Buffy ponders the way her Calling would be different if she had grown up with alternate circumstances.

Challenge: sorta for the livejournal 2017 August Fic-a-Day Challenge

Timeline: pre-series for BtVS, but after the dreams began in the movie

A/N: I'm posting this now to get ideas on different fandoms to use. The idea originally popped up while watching the Netflix series 'Marvel's Iron Fist'.

Buffy's bedroom

As she calmed her mind from the recurring nightmare, the girl born as Buffy Summers in one reality considered her life and what her subconscious could be trying to tell her. Knowing that sleep would elude her for the rest of the night, she got up to start her day.

While she prepared herself, her mind drifted to the life that could have been. Sometimes she had visions of an existence where she was the daughter of Hank and Joyce Summers and occasionally the sister of Dawn Summers. She grew up a privileged girl in a moderately well-off suburb of Los Angeles where she did traditional American teenager things. How would that girl react to these dreams?

Assuming they were a portent of some kind and not just the result of spoiled food, she would probably try to deny any message the dreams were trying to tell her. She would have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into whatever destiny it brought her.

But she wasn't that girl in this reality.

So, the important question she had to answer was: how would the real her react?


A/N: I'm asking to suggestions now in case I need to research the fandom(s) you provide that catch my interest. So please, tell me what fandoms you'd like to see Buffy start in before she's Called to become the Slayer. I'm leaving it as vague as possible (even her name in this reality) so I can mold the suggestions to fit.
