Title: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Slayer's Hunter
Author: Robyn the Snowshoe Hare
Part: 2/?
Disclaimer: Nothing is mine, not even the concept of a MST/BtVS crossover. That distinction rests with the incredibly talented Jenni W. 'The Slayer's Hunter' is the first story that I ever wrote.

Quick Summary: Buffy, Angel, Willow, Cordelia, Giles, and Xander are stuck on a satellite where the Mayor and Faith are sending them Badfanfic to read, and they keep their sanity by making sarcastic comments.

Dedication: My sincerest gratitude and apologies to Jenni W.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

>>The Slayer's Hunter

Cordelia: How much longer *is* this story?

Willow: Well, knowing the way these authors can drag things on forever, maybe five or six more parts.

Giles: That doesn't sound very promising.

>>by Robyn the Snowshoe Hare and Stone Cold

Xander: Again with the rabbit-girl and the wrestler.

Angel: I don't think that the authors are going to change their names, Xander.

Xander: I can always hope.

>>Disclaimer: Everything belongs to Joss and Mutant Enemy. The only
>>things that I can lay claim to are Hunter, Jesse, Jenny, and
>>Trevor. But they are mine, and no one else can play with them
>>without permission. Sorry, but I never picked up the Sesame Street
>>concept of sharing.

Buffy: On the bright side, though, it means that we'll never have to suffer through these characters in other fics.

>>Note: If you don't like angst and unhappiness, I recommend you
>>don't read this part.

Xander: Well, I don't like angst, but I know that Angel sure does.

Angel: It's a complex genre. A little more so than watching some kid get killed over and over again.

Xander: Kenny is an integral part of South Park!

Buffy: Guys, if you don't stop fighting than we'll *never* get through this.

>>This is *not* for the faint of heart, or the weak of stomach.

Willow: Well, I guess that counts *me* out.

Cordelia: Lucky you.

>>I recommend that if you fall into either of these two categories,
>>that you stop reading this series right now.

Willow: Woo hoo!

>>However, if you are feeling brave, or daring, please: read on.

Giles: I'm not feeling particularly inclined to either. Does that mean I don't have to read this?

Cordelia: If I have to read this, you have to read this.

Giles: Blast.

>>And send me your comments, I'd really appreciate feedback. But
>>leave your flamethrowers at the door.

Angel: Dear Author, this sucked. Please do society a favor and never write again.

Buffy: Hun, that would fall under the category of flame.

Angel: Damn.

>>--------------------------------------------------------------------
>>------------

Xander: Oooh, a border.

All: Oooh, ahhhh.

>>Part Two

Cordelia: When are they going to get to the story?

Willow: Probably never.

>>--------------------------------------------------------------------
>>------------

Buffy: *More* borders! Be still my heart!

>>Everyone had come over, and the birthday party had run long, as
>>everyone was having too much fun to notice the time.

Angel: The large amount of liquor everyone had been drinking helped with this.

>>Hunter was curled up on the couch, nestled between his mother and
>>Grandpa Giles, when he heard his father announce that it was dusk.

Xander: What did I do, just say, "It is now dusk,"?

Cordelia: Knowing this story, you probably spelt it out with charades.

>>The happiness of the day dissolved in a moment at these dreaded
>>words.

Buffy: This kid must really not like having to go to bed.

>>The first rule that Hunter had ever been taught was to come inside
>>before dusk fell. It was the same with Jesse, Jenny, and Trevor.
>>None of them ever stayed out alone after twilight. And they were
>>only allowed outside at night when there were at least two adults
>>in attendence, and they were *never* allowed to walk even a few
>>steps beyond their parents' watchful eyes.

Giles: Sadly, tonight was the exeption, they all walked beyond their parents' supervision, were killed, and the story ended.

Buffy: Nice with the sarcasm, Giles.

>>But now it was dusk,

All: We already know this!

>>and everyone was still at his house, and they had to go home.

Xander: Gee, imagine people having to go home.

>>The adults talked very quietly, and very quickly. Hunter could feel
>>their worry, as if it were a living thing that he watched take form
>>and substance.

Cordelia: This being the Hellmouth, though, it wouldn't be surprising if it did.

Willow: This being badfic, it wouldn't be surprising if it was named Bill.

>>Hunter wondered why they were so worried tonight, after all, this
>>had happened before, when they had friends over after dark.
>>Usually, they would just walk quickly home.

Buffy: I guess no one owns cars.

>>But they seemed extra worried tonight. Hunter noticed that his
>>parents always seemed more cautious about the coming of night
>>around special days, like his parents' anniversary, or his mother's
>>birthday, or Christmas, or Valentine's Day.

Xander: Angelus really puts the zing into holidays, huh?

Angel: Do you mind, Xander? I'm still trying to repress everything that happened on Valentine's Day and Buffy's last two birthdays.

Willow: Don't forget about "Amends".

Buffy: Yeah, hun, way to surprise me for Christmas. Try to kill yourself.

Giles: Er, can we get back to reading?

All: Fine.

>>But they were always very, very, careful around his birthday.

Xander: I guess we didn't want Angel to drop by and give him a card.

>>He wondered why, at the time, but he was sleepy after the long day,
>>and he let the thought drift away.
>>
>>It was decided that Jesse would sleep over with him, and Uncle Oz
>>would pick him up tomarrow morning, before he started work. Uncle
>>Oz taught at Physics at the high school, and Aunt Willow taught it
>>at the college.

Angel: Very math-oriented family.

Buffy: I never really pegged Oz as the teaching type.

Willow: Me neither. Unless it was music-lessons.

>>They also both did some computer programing on the side.

Cordelia: Living the American Dream?

Willow: Except for the part where I chain up my husband for three days out of the month.

Xander: Okay, that just sounded bad.

>>Luckily, Aunt Cordelia had had to leave early with Trevor, at about
>>5:00.

Giles: No reason why, she just left.

Angel: This is badfic. Just keep repeating that to yourself.

>>But Jenny had an important doctor's appointment early tomarrow,

Xander: Finally found time to go ahead with the labotomy plan?

>>and was also getting fussy, and wanted to go home.

Giles: Overuse of the word 'and'.

Buffy: Plus, spelling is not this girl's friend.

>>So Aunt Willow and Uncle Oz got ready to go.

Cordelia: How long did it take us to get to this point?

Willow: Don't think about it, it'll just depress you.

>>Hunter's mother and father decided to walk with them, just to see
>>that they got home all right, and his mother volunteered to carry
>>Jenny if Aunt Willow got tired. Then Hunter's mother gave him a hug
>>and a kiss.

All: Awwww.

>>"Happy Birthday, sweetie." she said. Then, a strange look passed
>>over her face, and she seemed to try and shake something off.

Xander: It turned out to be a fly, though, and she shook it off and got on with life.

>>Still with a shadow in her eyes,

Angel: Clearly the authors didn't provide decent lighting.

>>she said: "Be a good boy, and don't take your cross off, we don't
>>want to lose it." Those were the last words she ever said to him.

Cordelia: Because she ran off to Vegas the next morning.

Angel: To hook up with her old boyfriend.

Buffy: And live a happy life.

>>He was very young, but for years he would have nightmares about
>>that moment, when his mother got up to leave. He watched as his
>>father helped her into her coat.

Xander: See? I'm a good husband.

>>In his mind's eye, he could still see the loving look they
>>exchanged.

Angel: Well, if she's about to die, at least that means that there will be no more exchanging loving looks around here!

>>Her shoulder length blonde hair shimmered in the dim light,

Giles: Again with the lighting.

>>and her green eyes sparkled as she waved to him.

Willow: Really weird use of lighting.

>>In his nightmares, he would always scream for her not to go. But it
>>never did any good, she left, as she always left, with her special
>>bounce in her walk,

Xander: Which was because of the trampolene-floor.

Buffy: Trampolene-floor?

Xander: Specially designed.

>>and his father's arm around her waist.

Angel: < growling >

Giles: Angel, you really have to relax.

>>And then the door clicked shut behind her.

Xander: This click was brought to you by FX special effects.

>>Jesse had already fallen asleep, so Grandpa Giles carried him up to
>>bed.

Giles: I don't approve of this 'Grandpa Giles' trend.

Cordelia: Plus it looks like they're using you as free child-care.

>>He returned for him, but Hunter begged him for a story.

Angel: Once there was a really obnoxious jerk named Xander, who somehow tricked your mommy into marrying him.

Xander: Once there was an annoying loser named Angel, who went around eating people and abandoned your mommy when she was pregnant.

Buffy: I don't think either of those stories would be appropriate for my son.

>>Giles gave in, unable to refuse the boy's simple request when he
>>sat there in fuzzy yellow feety pajamas, with his pleading eyes (so
>>like his mother's) staring up at him.

Cordelia: Just how late are you letting this kid stay up until?

Xander: Giles, when we left you to care for our son, we expected him to be put to bed. Not running around at all hours of the night.

>>Giles seated himself back on the couch, and Hunter cuddled up to
>>him, and his brown hair (in desperate need of a haircut) caught the
>>static from Giles' tweed vest and began to friz.

Giles: Actually, I use this wonderful fabric softener that keeps my vests static-free.

>>He told Hunter stories that were fantastic and amazing, but always
>>ended happily, with the hero winning.

Angel: ..and the vampire getting the girl.

Xander: Dream on, dead boy.

>>About twenty minutes passed in this pleasant manner, and then the
>>stillness of the evening was torn

Cordelia: First the happiness was dissolved, now the stillness has been torn.

Willow: This evening isn't holding up very well.

>>when the door slammed open, and Aunt Willow stumbled in, bleeding
>>profusely from a gash on her forehead,

Buffy: That's definitely going to need stitches.

>>half supported by her husband, who carried the body of their
>>daughter.

All: Whoa!

Angel: Gotta say, I didn't see that one coming.

Willow: Now I feel guilt for the death of my fictional child.

Buffy: Everyone needs a pet psychosis.

>>Six-year-old Jenny Seneca's neck had been snapped, like that of her
>>namesake, Jenny Calender, dead for eleven years.

Cordelia: You were just asking for trouble when you named her after Miss Calendar.

Willow: Jeez, just give me *more* guilt.

>>Later, the police were amazed that Oz Seneca had been able to both
>>support his wife and carry his child, because his arm had been
>>snapped in three places.

All: Ouch!

>>Hunter's father came in behind them. His hands were covered in
>>slashes, and his shoulder was bleeding from a shallow knife wound.

Xander: Ow. Why am I always hurt in these fics?

Willow: Hello? Death of a child and husband's arm broken over here.

Xander: Oh, right.

>>His face was a mask of agony and loss, but not because of his
>>wounds.

Giles: It was because he had just realized what college costs were likely to be for his son.

>>Xander Harris didn't even know about them. In his arms lay his
>>beloved wife, bleeding from numerous small wounds on her arms and
>>face. But Hunter didn't see those then. What he saw was where his
>>mother's throat had been ripped open.

All: Eeeeewwwwwww!

Cordelia: That kid is going to need *serious* therapy for that one.

Buffy: At least I'm out of the story now.

>>It was years later that Hunter ever wondered why there had been so
>>little blood at that massive wound.

Giles: Of course, little can be a relative term.

>>He blamed it on the memory of a child, even though he knew that the
>>memory was crystal clear. All Hunter could do was kneel by his
>>mother's body, and sob. Just as his father was doing.

All: Awwwww.

>>Hunter never shed a tear after that awful night. As he stood
>>between his father and Giles, watching as his mother's coffin was
>>lowered into the ground, he made a promise. To his mother, the
>>person he loved most in the whole world. He promised that he would

Cordelia: Always eat his vegetables.

Xander: Clean his room.

Buffy: Floss.

>>avenge her. That he would become what his name meant. He would
>>become a hunter.

Buffy: Of what?

Giles: Well, this being Sunnydale...

>>And he would also do the last thing his mother ever told him. He
>>never took his cross off again.

Cordelia: Wouldn't that make it hard to shower?

Xander: He also swore off showers.

Willow: Eeeww.
