Hello, all.

I hope this is finding everyone well. I'm not sure how much Buffy might have filled you in regarding the status of the Slayers and the operation of the Watchers, but I'll spare you the details for now, in the interest of brevity. We did agree that the four of us do need to sit down and work out a number of logisitical details, and Buffy suggested (quite insistently) that I be the one to see to organizing this meeting.

Let me know when and where you'll be available as soon as possible, so we can all get to work.

Thank you,
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce

Wesley shook his father's hand. "You're sure I can't convince you to stay a bit longer?"

Shaking his head, Roger clapped his son warmly on the shoulder. "Not a chance. Your mother was delighted at the news of my retirement, and I understand she wasted no time booking us a holiday. Haven't had one in ages, and I'm certainly not going to disappoint her."

"Of course not," replied Wesley, the smile on his face at least a little genuine for the moment. "Have a pleasant flight, then, Father. Please call when you get home."

Roger nodded. "Thank you, Wesley. And keep me apprised of how you and Miss Summers will be coming along with the Slayers." Another warm, firm shake. "Goodbye, son."

"Goodbye, Father."

Wesley watched as his father passed through the security checkpoint and disappeared into the rest of the international terminal at LAX. Once Roger was out of sight, Wesley took a deep breath to centre himself and promise to find some way to relieve the stress of his deception. As he passed under the great glass wall at the front of the terminal, heading for the car park, Wesley drew his cell phone.

"Buffy? It's Wesley. Where can I meet you? There've been some developments that you'll want to know about."

Training plan for the third week of April, 1999

Training is to begin at 6:00 A.M. sharp, prior to the opening bell of school. We will start with calisthenics, including at least ten laps of the school track and ten minutes of any of the Council-approved martial arts kata with which the Slayers may be familiar.

Immediately after the last bell of school, both Buffy and Faith are to meet with myself in the school Library. Weapons training will be saved for the latter part of this afternoon session, providing that both Slayers are able to satisfactorily complete the following three study goals:

First: Commit to memory the eight major classes of demonkind, outside of vampires, and their primary characteristics. Also, to be conversant with the twelve minor classes of demons and at least the preferred methods of dispatching all of the above.

Second: Demonstrate working knowledge of the Basic Battle Tactics for Slayers, as outlined in pages 341 through 359 of the Slayer Handbook, and be able to discuss practical Sunnydale applications thereof.

Third: Prepare an outline of the greater administrative structure of the Watchers Council. Propose a proper and acceptable chain of command to most effectively take advantage of the unique characteristics of the so-called "Scooby Gang".

Should these tasks be completed, weapons practice will involve the compound crossbow. Hopefully that should be sufficient motivation.

Found in the rubble of Sunnydale High School, crumpled burned and completely unusued.

Dearest Mother,

I am hoping this letter finds both you and Father well.

At the top of this letter you may find my current mailing address for use while I am assigned here in Sunnydale, at least for the time being.

A letter home )

Despite being a bit late, the sentiment is still genuine. Happy Birthday, Buffy Summers.

212 - What event do you wish you could have been a "fly on the wall" for?

Everyone in Los Angeles had their theories, and I'm sure everyone in Sunnydale was equally as curious and suppositious as we were. In the end, neither of the parties involved were inclined to describe the encounter with anything further than the single word "intense". It didn't stop any of us from wondering, though.

It certainly didn't stop some of us from voicing some of those thoughts, either. Perhaps at the next party, Cordelia and I will stage a revival of Buffy and Angel: the Reunion, a two-person drama that met with such rave reviews in its first and only performance.

Meeting halfway )

prodigalwatcher: (Glasses Stern)
196 - Congratulations! You've been granted one wish. What is it?

I'd have been a better Watcher, back in Sunnydale.

No, more than that, I would go back to those days myself. Before I start hearing the horror stories and usual admonishments about time travel and the catastrophic butterfly effects of changing history and possible paradoxes, this is a hypothetical question. I would send me as I am now to serve as Watcher, mentor and guide to the two willful and determined Slayers, rather than the self-important prig sent by the Council.

Down the line )
