Lady Q: Write a story based on the meaning of Xander's name. Alexander means: Defender of Men and Warrior. So I would like to see a story based on the meaning of his name and Xander coming to understand it
“He who is named Warrior, Defender of Mankind
And the Determined Protector
Conjoined they must become
Empowered to work with the Chosen One
To prevent the rise of the evil that lies beneath
Or all will fail and only evil shall come to pass.”
“I say, Buffy, this er latest prophecy – it is a cause of um some concern”.
“Don't tell me – another apocalypse?! Come on, Giles, we have one nearly every other week!! The end of the world is nigh, but don't forget your homework!! Just do your researchy thing and let me know how to kill whatever is and we're good! Right?”
“I don't think this is going to be quite so simple as that.” Giles stood up from the research table, lifting the heavy tome he had been reading and moved towards the shelf. “I need to double-check with the Codex of Ruination, but I think we might be in for some rather stormy weather”.
“Oh. Does that mean I can't go shoe shopping?”
