Buffy fic repost: "And Cancel Slaying!"

We've got about half a foot of snow on the ground here -- and a little sleet. Not as bad as what the northwest has been getting, but bad enough. In "honor" of our storm, which is also hitting Cleveland *waves to vichan*, here's a repost of a story I wrote about this time last year, under similar conditions. Hope everyone's staying as warm and dry as possible!

Giles paused in the middle of checking the morning report, and sent a quizzical look toward Dawn. “Why are we receiving Cleveland School closings? This is Chicago.”

“Read them,” she prompted.

He scanned the list. “East Chicago School for Girls, Cleveland Branch – but that’s our cover story for the operatives there.”

Dawn nodded brightly. “Yep, and they’re covered – they’re all covered. They had a storm in Ohio; everything’s snowed in.”

Giles bit back a question about why a private school of a dozen slayers even had to be on the school closing list – of course, they were trying to make the school disguise as solid as possible.

Of more concern was the image of vampires wading through snowdrifts, searching for stranded motorists. “But – Buffy canceled slaying? We can’t just cancel slaying! The forces of darkness thrive on –“ He paused, coming to a chart that showed a marked decrease in demonic activity. “I don’t understand. She reported just last week that the Hellmouth was opening.”

“Pothole. They do things big over there – even vampires know to stay inside when bad weather hits Cleveland!”

“Did Xander concur with this?”

“He said, and I quote, ‘Yay!’”

“Well, of course he did.”
