Visionary Part 2:
Bane Of Anubis
For the record: I do not own Stargate SG-1, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Nor do I own the word Tarithna, this belongs to Bktheirregular.
Previously in Visionary on Buffy the Goa'uld Slayer
Buffy thrashed around in her bed, the nightmare coursing through her mind making her cry out in fear and pain. Flashes of pyramids, of demons who took humans as hosts, of cultists in funky armour passed through her mind. Then Buffy saw her, a slayer leading an army, a host of humans against the cultists, screaming 'false gods' for all to hear. The humans behind her taking up the chant, as demons, even vampires joined the slayer in pushing this vile creature and his followers off their world.
"The Tarithna is well known to the system lords, Tarithna means Hunter of debased ones, and is one of only two positions respected by all Goa'ulds, indeed it is rumoured Ra once killed a minor system lord who attempted to control the Tarithna, and that the Tarithna commanded an army of Jaffa on this world " Teal'c replied.
"Garage door openers, if you don't send us the correct code, the door stays closed" O'Neill gestured towards the iris over the StarGate, "and you splat"
"Yikes, now that is how you deal with door to door salespersons"
Da'mos turned as Buffy approached and a shockwave of energy hit her again, throwing her back into O'Neill, they crashed into the wall and down to the ground, grunting in pain.
"You know, I think maybe this ones a Goa'uld….." Buffy said, as she crawled painfully back to her feet.
"You know, you may just be right" O'Niell looked over to where Da'mos was torturing an SF with his ribbon device, "Yep, that's a Goa'uld…"
"Xander" she said slowly
"We have a prophecy" Buffy replied.
"Shit, I hate it when that happens"
"Excuse me? Prophecy?" O'Neill added, his tone disbelieving.
"Prophecy" Buffy and Xander confirmed, their tones resigned.
"Twice she falls and twice she shall arise,
Guardian and destroyer of the First gate
Champion of the Heavens Gate
In the hour of her greatest deed,
The Fallen Angel, cast out by the Host and Choirs,
Shall send forth the Legion, the blight,
The plague on all humanity,
Of two minds she shall arise,
Of one she shall fall,
And darkness will encompass all"
"Exactly how many ships are we looking at?" O'Neill asked.
"At least three motherships, and 14 Ha'taks, they are amassing at Tyrendula and we expect them to be ready to leave within the next three days" Jacob replied, his voice tense, "There is no way that you and your allies will be able to take that lot out in a fleet action, so it will have to be a covert assault as usual"
And now on Buffy the Goa'uld Slayer
Thor's ship flashed through hyperspace towards Tyrendula at speeds no Goa'uld vessel could hope to match, the two SG teams within practising and planning their assault with the ease of experience.
"So, we sweep in, set explosives on the largest ship we can find Naquadah stores and get out before they blow with the force of a small sun, hopefully taking several other ships with them?" O'Neill replied, unimpressed.
"Yep" Buffy cheerfully responded, "Of course, seizing a hat as a getaway craft would finish the plan off nicely don't you think?"
"I believe a hat would not be an appropriate transport back to the SGC, Honoured warrior" Teal'c commented, "however if you refer to a Hat'ak, I am sure Hammond would be pleased if we could actually manage to keep possession of such a ship"
"Be a first" O'Neill commented.
"Getting ambitious aren't we, Buffy?" Xander grinned, "I mean an enemy warship? Slightly bigger than the weapons we have been salvaging over the years"
"No Xander, ambitious would be going after a mothership…" Willow trailed off a gleam came into the eyes of Buffy and the Colonel, "Not that we could get a mothership, I mean hey, gotta be a couple of thousand soldiers on one of those, right?"
"Right" Carter nodded, shooting worried looks at the colonel and the Tarithna. She quietly breathed a sigh of relief as the gleams faded from the eyes.
"It's not as if we could just gas the entire ship after all…" Willow continued.
Carter groaned, this was not of the good. Willow had just given the Colonel the piece he needed to put a plan together that, even by SG-1 standards, could be considered crazy.
"Wonder what Hammonds face would be like if we showed up with a mothership?" Xander chuckled.
Carter could have cheerfully shot him for that, as the gleam in the colonels eyes grew brighter.
"Major Carter, I am feeling most worried" Teal'c's voice was pensive as he looked at the gleam in the Tarithna's and the Colonels eyes.
"Ditto" Carter wryly responded.
"Indeed" Giles added, his glasses being furiously polished.
