Author's Note: This is yet another crossover between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Wars. Here's the lowdown before I get on with the story (SPOILER WARNING: if you don't want to read all of this, skip this part and just read onto the story.)
This is an alternate story for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Wars. For those of you hoping for a lot of Anakin/Padme goodness, there won't be a lot of romantic goodness for that pairing (sorry, guys!).
For those of you hoping for a Xander/Anya pairing, Anya will NOT be in this story at all (sorry!).
Spike is in the story but only in flashback and dream scenes.
One of the Slayers will eventally turn to the dark side (clues to the Slayer's identity will be left in each chapter).
Something about the Slayer line will be revealed courtesy of the Jedi later on in the story.
Anakin's fate will be revealed in the most unexpected way with a Buffy-like twist.
Forgot to add this to the first point, Qui-Gon is alive and made it throughout Episode II: Attack Of The Clones but he is NOT training Anakin.
This story will begin at the end of the Buffy series finale Chosen and the beginning of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith
Well, that's it for now. Enjoy this story and please review! No flames please!
Summary: Two years after the destruction of Sunnydale and the closure of the Hellmouth, the Slayer and her friends set up shop in Wellington, New Zealand in order to start training Slayers but destiny steps in after Giles makes a discovery that would change the fate of the world and courtesy of the Powers That Be, they are sent to a galaxy far, far away where it is at war and a young Jedi (Anakin) is being pushed to the dark side. But fate steps in when Anakin meets and falls in love with Buffy causing him to question his feelings for Padme and for him to struggle with the darkness that's threatening to take over his tortured soul. After uncovering a secret that can change Anakin's fate and reveals the power that her sister has inside of her as the Key, Buffy and the Scoobies team up with the Jedi Knights to fight their enemies and save their world from utter ruin. Then the Slayer has to confront Anakin in a life and death situation to bring him back to the light side and to unleash the power within Dawn whose existence as the Key has finally come to full circle.
Love Is Only The Beginning
In the time of the seventh century in China, a young Slayer named Lin made a discovery that would change the face of the Chosen line. A prophesy that involved a Slayer from the future and a group of warriors in another world known as Jedi Knights. It is said that the Slayer in the future would fall in love with a Jedi Knight who is on the verge to turning to the dark side but with the help of the Key, she would turn him back to the light side. After making this discovery, Lin and her Watcher spent the rest of their lives trying to discover the identities of the Slayer and the Jedi Knight in the prophesy. But after many years of research, the Watcher's Council locked away this amazing discovery saying that the prophesy would never come true and that it was a lost cause. But the prophesy was later rediscovered when chance came, it was sent to a galaxy far, far away and to the country of New Zeland on Earth where a group of Slayers and her friends were setting up shop. The prophesy was sent to a Jedi Master named Obi-Wan Kenobi and a Watcher named Rupert Giles. The time will soon come when the power of the Key and the love between a fallen Jedi Knight and a Slayer change the fortunes of all …
Wellington, New Zealand
Buffy Summers stood on the front porch of the flathouse staring at the moon. Two years had passed since the destruction of Sunnydale and the closure of the Hellmouth. After finding and gathering thousands and thousands of Slayers, she and the Scoobies brought them to New Zealand. It was a hard and difficult job but they managed to do it successfully. Since the Watcher's Council was destroyed by the First Evil, it took two years of work to restore the Council by recruiting new Watchers and other staff members but it was also done with success. But those achievements weren't enough to ease Buffy's pain over the death of someone she held dear to her heart in the final days leading to the battle against the First Evil.
Tears welled in Buffy's eyes as the memories of that fateful day came back to her. How she took his hand as it caught fire and said the words that Spike had wanted to hear from her so desperately.
I love you.
Then the words that he told her so kindly. The words that tore at her heart for the two years since his death.
No, you don't. But thank you for saying it.
Then before she could stop herself, Buffy burst into tears and she fell onto her knees crying. The pain grew with each passing sob. She then buried her face into her hands and sobbed quietly letting go two years of pain and grief over Spike's death. Then she cried herself to sleep on the porch.Senator's residence
Anakin stood inside of what looked like a cave but it was caving in with rocks falling all over the place. He looked around and to his surprise, he saw a beautiful young woman and a young man standing at the center of the cave. The young woman was so beautiful that Anakin thought that he was going to collapse. He glanced at her and the young man and stepped toward them. Then Anakin heard them speak.
"Gotta to go love. I'd say school's out for bloody summer."
Anakin watched as the young woman walked in front of the young man who was now on fire. She cried out the man's name.
"Gotta do this."
Then she placed her hand over the young man's hand, which caught fire then she said something to him.
"I love you."
Then the young man replied. "No, you don't. But thank you for saying it."
Then just as the young woman was about to turn to leave, her green eyes became fixed upon Anakin's blue ones. She kept looking at him …
Anakin Skywalker flew from his bed with sweat pouring down his face. It had been the seventh time in nearly two weeks that he dreamed of the beautiful young woman. He wasn't sure why he was dreaming about her or who she was but all he knew was from what he saw in his dreams. Now wide awake, Anakin got up from his bed careful not to wake up Padme who was sleeping beside him and went to the window. He stood in front of it and stared at the night sky thinking of his dreams and of the young woman. Who is she? Why am I dreaming about her? Who was the man she was with?
"Why I am dreaming of you?" Anakin whispered. "Who are you?"Summers flathouse

At the same time …
Buffy looked around feeling confused and bewildered. She found herself standing on a platform overlooking an ocean of lava and standing in front of her was a young man dressed entirely of dark brown. He had dark blonde hair and blue eyes with an intense look in them. A look that Buffy has seen many times in only a few people in her life.
Angel and Spike. Before they had souls.
Buffy then saw something land on the platform what looked like to her a spaceship like she saw in movies. It opened to reveal a young pregnant woman with brown hair and eyes. She ran straight to the young man who wrapped his arms around her. Buffy struggled to hear what they saying but she was too far away to be able to hear. Then she saw something on the young woman's face that was too familiar to her.
A look of horror and desperation. The same feelings she felt when she was fighting Angel when he lost his soul and became Angelus. That meant only one thing to Buffy.
He turned to the dark side. Somehow, he turned evil and she saw the change in him just like I did with Angel when he became Angelus.
Then what she heard and saw next stunned her, she heard the young woman cry out "Anakin, I love you." Buffy then saw a look of uncontrollable rage etch on the young man's face and he screamed "Lilar!" The Slayer turned to see an older man dressed in lighter brown with a cloak standing on the ramp. Then Buffy turned to see that the young man had his fist clutched. Buffy then turned back to see that the young woman was choking and gasping for air.
"You betrayed me!" He screamed again.
Without knowing why, Buffy ran in front of the young man. "Let her go!" She shouted not sure if he could her. Then the young man turned and glanced upon her with a stunned look on his handsome face. He kept staring at her …
Buffy flew up from where she had fallen asleep on the porch and put her hand on her chest trying to calm her pounding heart. Sweat poured down her face and arms. Out of all of the dreams she had as the Slayer, this was the worst one she had in a long time. Shaking, Buffy got up from the floor and went back inside the house. Instead of going back to her bedroom, she went into Giles's office, which to her surprise, she found him sitting on his desk looking at what looked like an old scroll. She quietly went over to him and laid a hand on his shoulder. Giles looked up and smiled when he saw who it was.
"Buffy." Giles said. "What are you doing up at this time of night?"
Buffy hesitated before she spoke. "I couldn't sleep so I went out onto the porch. I was thinking about Spike and I cried myself to sleep. After I fell asleep, I got this really horrible nightmare. But I'm thinking it's one of my Slayer dreams."
Now concerned, Giles gave her a worried look. "Tell me, Buffy. What did you dream about?"
Buffy told him about what had happened in the dream. After she was finished, she saw that Giles gave her a grim expression. A look that she had seen on her Watcher's face more times than she cared to see in her life.
"What is it, Giles?" she asked.
"What you just described to me, Buffy, is part of what I found a few weeks ago in the old Watcher's Council Headquarters. A prophesy that was made hundreds of years ago in seventh century China. A Slayer and her Watcher spent many years trying to figure out what it meant but with no success. Then the Council locked it away citing it as a hopeless cause."
"What kind of prophesy?" Buffy asked.
"It involves a Slayer and a group of warriors called Jedi Knights. It is said that the Slayer and a fallen Jedi Knight will fall in love and that the Slayer, with the help of the Key, will be able to bring him back to the light side." Giles replied.
Buffy froze when she realized who the Slayer in the prophesy was. "The Slayer who is supposed to fall in love with this Jedi Knight is me. Dawn is the Key. So who's the fallen Jedi Knight?"
"I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that." Giles admitted. "But according to this, if this prophesy doesn't come true and this Jedi Knight doesn't come back to the light side, it will reverse what we did two years ago when we fought the First Evil."
Ice water ran through Buffy's veins when she realized what that meant. "The First Evil will come back and finish what it started." She said.
Giles nodded his head gravely. Then he looked out the window and saw that it was almost sunrise. Buffy also saw it and she turned to her Watcher with a grim expression on her face. Then she said the words that she had hoped that she would never say again.
"Round up everyone. Prepare the gang for bad news."
Anakin couldn't stop thinking about the dream he had earlier about the young woman. Despite everything he researched on about dreams, he couldn't figure out or understand why he was dreaming about someone he didn't know. He stood in front of the window staring at the dawning sky thinking of her. Although she was beautiful, there was something else about her. Something that Anakin couldn't explain to himself. It was almost as if she had the same kind of life as he had. A life where she lost friends and family to some kind of life-long mission.
What kind of mission would curse her to live such a nightmare? Anakin thought to himself. His train of thought was interrupted by a beep of his computer. Sighing, Anakin went over to the computer and pressed a button. The screen revealed the face of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.
"Have I woken you up, Anakin?" Qui-Gon asked.
Anakin shook his head. "No, Master. Of course not."
"The Council has called a meeting and they requested that you attend." Qui-Gon said.
"Why? Has something happened that I should know about." Anakin asked worried.
"They didn't say what the meeting is about." Qui-Gon said. "But I have a feeling that it's not good."
Whatever it is, it must've worried the Council enough to want to call a meeting. Anakin thought to himself as he said. "I'll be right there." After turning the computer off, Anakin quickly got dressed and rushed out of the apartment to get to the Jedi Temple.
