It takes, traffic permitting (which is always a most appropriate and irritating turn of phrase here in Southern California), approximately five to six hours to drive from Los Angeles to Stockton, which is located not so very far away from San Francisco. In point of fact, there is a very real and very proudly maintained delineation between the two halves of the state, and two very different geographic personalities. That difference is not taking into account, naturally, how much the Los Angeles area differed from the rest of the world on the day I made the trip.

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

226 - Name three things that you're looking forward to in the near future and why.

From the training journal of Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, Watcher-in-Residence, Sunnydale, California, USA

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.

208 - Four

OOC: Shamelessly stolen from Inspired by the #208 prompts by [ profile] queenemma!mun

Traditionally, demons and vampires and other supernatural creatures have been fought with traditional weaponry. Blades and bows, wood and steel against their fangs and claws. Whether this is a case of their visceral, mystical strength being met with the base ability of humanity-- tools and muscle-- or whether it is simply just the way things have been done, it is rare for those in that business to employ the modern tools of war.

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 )

prodigalwatcher: (All Alone in the Night)
192 - Write about a recurring dream you've had.

Hot. Cold. Loud. Sharp.

The words echo like the refrain of a song, though if Wesley ever knew the words, he cannot, in that particular moment, recall them. Not that one would blame the man for having trouble concentrating. In the moment Wesley dreams of, he is sitting on a chair-- tied down to it, to be precise. The chair is in a kitchen. The kitchen is in an apartment. The apartment has been broken into and belongs to neither of the people in the kitchen, not the man tied to the chair and not the young woman brandishing the chef's knife as if she were ready to begin deboning a chicken.

Look back in anger )
