My first fan fic!

Giles looked intensely uncomfortable in the back seat of Buffy's black Ferrari. Music was blasting from the speakers, and Giles was wedged between young Dawn Summers and moody Spike. Dawn was fast asleep, and leaning on Giles. A stream of drool trickled from her mouth, and ran down Giles's green sweater. Spike was drinking blood from a sippy cup. He slurped down the red liquid with dramatic snarling noises, trying to act as tough as possible. Giles's leg was itching up a storm, but he couldn't reach it, his hands were stuck in his lap.
"Buffy!" Giles yelled over the blaring music. "Are we there yet?"
"Hang in there, Giles!" Buffy struggled to be heard over the noise. "Only 30 miles away!"
Giles groaned. This was a bad start to the first-ever Scooby Gang Vacation. The destination: Disneyland. It was August, 83 degrees, and Giles was wearing a sweater. He was miserable, as one might imagine. That morning, two cars had left Sunnydale, heading south. In Buffy's black Ferrari, Giles, Faith, Dawn, Buffy, and Spike. In Xander's green minivan, Willow, Tara, Angel, Xander, and Anya. The Scoobys had been on the road since 5:00 am, and were now closing in on their destination.
Buffy herself was in the mood for some coffee. She was going 65 miles per hour, only 5 miles over the speed limit. Despite her heavy eyelids, Buffy was excited. She remembered going to Disneyland in the 2nd grade, getting her picture taken with Cinderella, and going on all the rides. She recalled telling Joyce, her mother, that she wanted to be a princess when she grew up, just like Cinderella.
"Who knew I would be plunging pointy pieces of wood through bloodthirsty vamps instead of living the life of luxury." Buffy thought. She drove down the highway, the sun unrelentingly pelting down on the Ferrari.
Somewhere about 4 miles behind Buffy, Xander was lost. That didn't mean he was going to admit it. "A man has dignity." He thought. "Okay, stay cool Xand, you know what you're doing, just follow the pavement and you'll find a town soon! Yeah! That's exactly what will happen! " Xander sighed. It was hopeless. They were lost. This wasn't California, this was Mars. The grass was dead. The road was slowly changing from pavement, to gravel, to dirt. Xander gulped, but kept driving. Beside him Anya was snoring softly. Xander smiled sweetly down at Anya, who had been out like a light since they had started driving. In the seat behind him, Willow was asleep as well, leaning on Tara's shoulder. Tara was quiet as a mouse, as always, and was concentrating very hard on a crossword puzzle. Suddenly, Xander felt as if there were to holes burning through his skin. Sighing, Xander pulled over to the side of the road and turned back to met Angel's steely gaze. No wonder he had felt holes burning through his skin.
"You got a problem, dead boy?" Xander asked coolly.
"Just how lost are we?" Angel inquired.
"We are not lost, okay? I'm taking a detour!"
"Enough! I'm not talking to you anymore!" Xander took his hands off the wheel and plugged his ears. "La la la laaaa! I can't hear you"
"Mature," Angel scowled, "Real mature."
At that moment, Anya woke up and screamed.
"Xander! What the hell are you doing? Eyes on the road! You should be DRIVING!"
From the backseat, Angel chuckled.
"Shut up!" I know what I'm doing!" Xander protested. No sooner had he said that, the car slowed to a stop. Xander glanced at the gas meter. Empty. He gulped.
"Where are Xander and the others?" Buffy wondered aloud, as she scanned the crowds for her friends. They were nowhere to be seen in the Hotel Lobby of the Disneyland resort hotel. Buffy hoped Xander didn't get lost. The road had been rough for her anyway. Ten miles away from the resort, Dawn had gotten carsick – all over Giles and Spike- and they had to race for the nearest rest stop. Faith was checking in at the front desk with Dawn. The front desk clerk stared disapprovingly at Faith's tattoo, handing her keys to their rooms. Faith turned and grinned at Buffy, waving the room keys in the air as is they were gold medals.
A few minutes later, Buffy walked into her hotel suit and set down her heavy suitcases with a thud.
"What happened to all my super-slayer strength?" She asked.
"Hate to break it to yah, Bee, but you're no match for stairs." Faith laughed.
"So this is our room," she observed. "Sweet." Dawn ran into the bedroom and started jumping on the bed. Buffy couldn't help but think about how Dawn was always talking about being a mature adult…and then not one day later she would act like a 5 year old.
Despite herself, Buffy joined Dawn on the bed. Even Faith decided to take part in the child-like fun.
"Okay, okay," Buffy giggled. "We're gonna destroy the bed!"
"She's right," agreed Faith. "….Instead let's waste electricity and water!"
Shrieking, Dawn rushed to turn on all the lights, even though it was the early afternoon. Faith turned on all the faucets and started to continuously flush the toilet. Buffy cackled wildly as she turned on the microwave. To a stranger, the three girls would look lunatics. But in truth, they were much crazier.
