Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. was having a strange night; even for a man that had ridden with Pancho Vllia, survived the trenches of World War 1, lived in Chicago during the 1920's gang wars, seen the Ark of the Covenant with his own eyes, gotten brainwashed into being a Thuggee cultist, almost killed over the Holy Grail, stood face to face with the most evil man in over a hundred years as he signed his father's diary without even seeing what it was, become a Colonel in the OSS, and had his brain hijacked by a crystal skull; finding himself in the middle of suburbia during an attack of pint-sized monsters with no clue how he got there during an attack of pint-sized monsters was high up on his weird meter. Then there was this "ghost" hooker who wouldn't stop calling him 'Xander' for some reason, the crazy broad had taken him and some woman who called herself Lara Croft; an archaeologist he had never heard of, from a British noble family he never heard of; to a small suburban house that she said was 'Buffy's' as she called Lara, but Indy didn't think it was, it was a nice place but not the kind of place where a noble lady would live.
The hooker seemed to think she was in charge here and was trying to plan her next move when there was a banging at the door, the two archeologists moved towards the door.
"What are you doing?" ghost said in a panicky voice.
"Seeing who it is, it could be someone needing help." Indy said as if it was obvious.
"Or a mini-demon." girl snapped back.
"Then we'll deal with it," Lara said as if it was obvious. Just then one of the three small windows broke as a monstrous hand was pushed through.
"Mini-demon!" the red head screamed. Indy braced the door while Lara moved up and aimed her gun at the ceiling of the front porch she fired off two rounds, the monster's mind was little more than animal instinct and the loud noise triggered the thing flight response causing it to flee as fast as it could. Lara looked at the girl.
"Big noise scare bad monster away." She said as if she was talking to a small child. Really this girl was getting on her nerves; first she wouldn't stop calling 'Buffy'; second she seemed to think she was the one in charge, but her skills in that area were clearly lacking as she had no intention of telling ether her or Indiana what was going on, it was not something Lara was use to, she always knew what was going on and she was usually the one in charge and she did not like giving that up to some panicky teenager who she couldn't touch.
A scream pierced the night, "Shit!" Indy cursed as he headed out the door, Croft was not far behind. The two archaeologists ignored the ghost's cries to get back inside were it was "Safe" really did this kid really think that they would stay still while someone was in trouble?
Cordelia Chase was running for her life from some weird werewolf/Dog man monster, was just one night to much to ask in this crazy town, and were was Buffy when you need her? Just as the monster was about to get to her Buffy finally appeared, though she was following Xander Harris, why the hell would little miss Super Slayer be following her sidekick? She didn't have long to wonder as Xander pulled a whip from his belt and with a loud crack used it like a lion tamer and dog boy was his lion.
"Come along," said Buffy in a high class British accent that was the least weird thing the other teen had encountered that night, Cordelia followed the blond turned brunet wondering just what was going on, and if this really meant that she owed Xander "Dork-boy" Harris her life.
Willow was starting to hyperventilate, in reality as she was a ghost this was all in her head as she had no lungs to hyperventilate with, but as things were spiraling out of control she could not be slighted for freaking out. Just then Buffy came in with Cordelia, Xander following behind as if guarding the rear, "Cordelia!"
"Wait a-What's going on?
Okay first things first, She thought, "Okay, your name is Cordelia, you're not a cat, you're in high school, and we're your friends. Well, sort of."
"That's nice Willow," the teen in a cat suit said in a faults sweet voice surprising the red head, "and you went mental when?"
"You know us?" Willow asked in shock.
"Yeah, lucky me, What's with the name game?"
"A lot is going on."
"No Kidding, I was just attacked by Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy. Look at my costume! Do you really think that Partytown's gonna give me my deposit back? Not on the likely."
Indy took off his jacket and placed it on the girl's shoulders, "Here."
"Okay." The red haired girl, "You guys stay here while I get some help. If something tries to get in, just fight it off."
Lara was tired of being left in the dark, "And why should we do what you ask?" she asked.
Cordilea was surprised to hear a high class British accent still coming from the valley girl slayer, "What's with the lady Giles?"
"I-it's like amnesia, okay? They don't know who they are. Just sit tight." Willow said, and then without bothering to answer Lara's question she walked through the wall and out of the house.
"Who Died and left her in charge?" The High School Queen asked.
"I have no Idea," Lara said, "but whoever it was I want to punch their bloody lights out."
"That makes two of us," Indy agreed. "Let's look for anything in this house we can use." With that they started to search the house.
AN: Finally it's here, I meant to have this done a week ago but I'm in the middle of a two month block of seven day work week, long story, so things are going to be real slow until August at least, depending on where I go with this story there will be 2 to 4 more chapters in this story before I move on to the next in the series
