So Much For The Negotiations - The Saber in the Stone 01

So Much For The Negotiations
By Susan Anthony (LdyGossamer@aol.com)
Notes: at the end of the story


"Master, I'm sorry but you've always taught me to use whatever weapon comes to hand." The padawan looked a bit sheepish as he stood before his master.
He held his hands clasped together, hidden in the sleeves of his brown robe as he watched his usually serene master pace the length of the
large room. In the three years he had been Master Qui-Gon Jinn's padawan learner, Obi-Wan had never seen the man pace.

Master Qui-Gon Jinn glanced at his student and then rubbed his forehead as if he felt a headache coming on.

"I understand that, Padawan, just as I know you meant no harm. Your actions certainly incited victory for the King's faction." The older Jedi groaned under his breath. "Or should I say, former King."

Obi-Wan blushed as he glanced at the gleaming circlet of gold the rowdy, victorious knights had insisted he wear. Now it lay almost accusingly on the velvet seat of the large throne that dominated the room. "Surely we can do something to convince them to pick someone else, Master," Obi-Wan began in a worried tone. "I mean, just think of what the Council will say!"

Qui-Gon froze in his tracks and felt a full body shudder wrack his tall frame. Oh Ancestors. He hadn't considered the Council yet. He turned to his apprentice and approached him slowly.


"Obi-Wan, my dear apprentice, my most favorite padawan," he began hopefully as he laid his large hands on his student's shoulders. "I don't suppose you tried to stick the sword *back* into the stone, did you?"

Qui-Gon stared at the old man across the table with a calm and serene gaze.  The old man stared back with an irritated glare.

"A fine mess that boy has made of this, wizard!" the old man snarled as he slapped his hand on the table.  Next to Qui-Gon, his padawan jumped nervously.

"I am not a wizard," Qui-Gon said in a firm tone as he glanced reassuringly at Obi-Wan.  "And I didn't catch your name when Knight Kay introduced us."  Qui-Gon thought this was probably because the knight could hardly speak from shaking so badly, obviously fearful of the irritable old geezer across the table.

"It's Merlin!" the man snorted as he sat back with a scowl.  

"Very well...Merlin," Qui-Gon replied with a polite nod.  "Obi-Wan certainly didn't mean to cause any problems.  My apprentice and I were sent to this planet to help with the negotiation of a peace treaty."

"You've achieved peace, all right!" the man scowled.  "With the wrong king on the throne!"  He turned to glare at Obi-Wan with a particularly dark gaze.  "Boy, don't you know not to play with sharp objects?"

Obi-Wan stared at him and then turned his wide, pleading eyes to his master.  Qui-Gon restrained himself from rubbing his forehead.

"Obi-Wan, why don't you go have a look around while I talk with Merlin."

The boy was on his feet and half-way across the room before his master finished the sentence.  "Yes, Master.  Thank you, Master."  And then he was gone.

Qui-Gon grinned briefly before he smoothed his expression and turned his gaze back to the new arrival.  "I dare say you have some things you'd like to speak of, Master Merlin?"

"I dare say you are correct, Master Jinn," the old man growled.

As the Phone Rings (1/2)

As the Phone Rings
By Susan Anthony

Summary: ATF Team Seven's new assignment stirs up some trouble with their youngest member.  And his friend, Xander Harris.

Disclaimer: these characters do not belong to me.  They belong to the creators of the Old West Magnificent 7 (the ATF AU was first written of by fanfic writer, Mog) and BtVS

Rated: PG

###

This website gives a short summary on the general history of each character in the Magnificent Seven.  It explains their old west cannon and their fandom created ATF characters.  The history of the characters in my story don't exactly match what is written on this site but it gives a good idea of their modern histories.

http://www.e-fic.com/duo/The7.htm

Some of JD’s experiences in this story were inspired by “Dunne Deal” by Helen W.

http://www.murphnet.org/fanfic/dunnedeal.html   

Author Notes:  This was inspired from a challenge from Calia in April 2009.  I didn't match it exactly because I don't watch some of the shows but this idea wouldn't go away.  The description of the challenge follows the story.

Thanks to Maig for her multiple beta readings.

Albus Dumbledore and the Tri-Wizard Tourney from Hell (1/?)

Albus Dumbledore and the Tri-Wizard Tourney from Hell (1/?)
By Susan Anthony (LdyGossamer@aol.com)
Fandom: BtVS/HP
Rating: PG
Summary: After Beauxbatons drops out of the Tri-Wizard Tournament, Albus Dumbledore needed another school without delay.  Too bad he didn't research the school in more detail.

Disclaimer: This story is for the pleasure of the readers only. I don't make a thing. The World of Harry Potter is owned by JK Rowling and the World of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is owned by Joss Whedon.

Note: Please be aware that I am totally Dumbledore bashing here.  Also, the timeline of events here is completely off for both BtVS and the HP universe.  Just consider this completely AU (crack).

Another note: There will be a very faint mention of slash later in this story though there are no pairings.

Dear MinMin - part one

Title: Dear Minmin
Author: Susan Anthony (LdyGossamer@aol.com)
Rating: FR15
Spoilers: from Buffy seasons 1, 2, 3
Summary: Xander keeps up with his grandmother, one Minerva McGonagall


Notes: I couldn't find a birthday for Xander, only that he'd been born in 1981.  So I gave him a birthday of August 31th, 1981.  Also, any inconsistencies concerning when things happened in the series are all my own mistakes or purposeful changes.  I won't say which is which.

HBP didn't happen, Dumbledore is alive and Harry killed off Voldemort at the end of his seventh year in June of 1998.  Also, Sirius is alive and was proven innocent when Wormtail was caught by aurors shortly into Harry's sixth year.

This story is written for Challenge 1758: Unusual Parentage by Lachesis
