My fall for sx piece!

So I just posted an story to [info]fall_for_sx.  It takes place post-Chosen and deals with character death, but has a happy ending and some smut!  Yay smut!  *coughs*  I mean tender love making.  Actually, I'll just include the header here...

Title:  Andumbulu
Author: vinniebatman, written for[info]fall_for_sx.
Fandom: BtVS
Season 7 of BtVS, Season 5 of AtS.  Ignores the Buffy comic
  Adult for the gay man on man loving! (yay!)  Though it's not right away.  Oh, and major character death.
  When Xander goes missing in Africa and is feared dead, Dawn and Spike are sent to investigate.  What they find is a secret behind the creation of the slayer line.
   He no longer feared death, but instead welcomed what would be the end of a hard life, filled with pain, injury, death and heartache.  At the age of 26, he was broken and tired of life, an old man in a young man's body.
 I do not own the Buffy characters or any characters or ideas from the film Taafa Fanga.
MAJOR Author's Note:
  This story was inspired by a film I saw called Taafe Fanga (Skirt Power) from Mali.  The film is is very entertaining, but is primarily about women's rights and gender equality.  It also featured some of the local Dogon beliefs.  The information I have on the Dogon and Tellem cultures comes from wikipedia and the above film.  What information I did find was about the basics of the Tellem and Dogon beliefs, but little else.  Therefore, the interactions and powers of the Tellem and Andumbulu in this story are creations of my own mind and are, as far as I know, untrue.  Aside from the basics of the spirits, all else is fabrication on my part.
A/N 2:
All translations are in mouseover, thanks to the lovely Ms.[info]noandwhere.  Also, I don't know french that well, so all french translations are from some random online source.
Beta: A million thanks to the wonderful [info]suki_blue.  You are beyond awesome!
