The reason for my post is with all of the talk about re-making Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I began brainstorming. What went form doing a Series remake to not doing the series remake (confusing? I know and am sorry), I've decided that my own remake of the Buffyverse will be in the fashion of a New Slayer and a New Series. I've really hammered out my premise (which will be posted below) of "what could have happened" in the Buffyverse if another writer did a spin-off of our two favorite Tv Series. With out further ado I Give you Rayne the Vampire Slayer (more to come)!
Series Premise (Background): Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 (My vision)
Season Eight begins after the defeat of the First Evil and its army of Ubervamps and the destruction of Sunnydale in 2003. With over 1800 slayers now activated, Buffy decides that she can take a much needed vacation with Dawn to the Bahamas.
Willow and Kennedy decided that with the peace that came with the Hellmouth's closure they can run off and spend time together allowing their love to grow. Giles and Andrew head to England to reform the New Watcher's Council.
Giles was named head of the new Council, and has spearheaded the rebuilding process, as well as setting new guidelines by which the Council operates. Fortunately, Giles has had a lot of help from friends from both sides of the Atlantic. Having established a new staff, and a new class of trainees, the new Watchers Council is currently stable, but with its greatly-reduced manpower, it has its hands quite full. It’s a different world now, a world with many Slayers in it that need guidance. (Borrowed this from Corvus of Natalie the Vampire Slayer, but it makes sense)
Xander lost in the world without Anya becomes cold and bitter. His demeanor changes from being the typical clown he has always been to a darker, grimmer Demon Hunter. He departs on bad terms with Giles.
Robin and Faith "vanish of the map" after the events in Sunnydale, noone is quite sure what happened to them.
The Government step in an begin to study the remains of Sunnydale. When they lead a government expedition sixty feet under the Hellmouth, they are cut short when one of the exploratory members encounters something. They discover a sarcophagus of an ancient evil. When they start to investigate the sarcophagus the explorer is possessed by a spirit much in the same fashion as Fred. With the entity free, it begins to cause all sorts of problems for the Slayers.
The next series of events to take place is the battle of the Slayers, dubbed the Slayer Wars in 2004, a year later.. The war starts when 50% of the Slayers are manipulated by the ancient evil, in turn going bad, rogue or renegade. Those that maintained their calling began a campaign to destroy the renegades. The Slayer Wars lasted nearly a year when Buffy, Dawn, Willow and Kennedy came out of hiding. With the aid of Xander they team back up to battle the ancient evil causing all of the mayhem.
The wars ended four years later when Buffy gave her life defeating the ancient evil, sending Willow into a mystical rage. Willow turning dark once more, began to cast a spell to undo the multitude of Slayers that were called. As a result, a massive backlash of mystical energy erupted from every Hellmouth throughout the world instantly killing every Slayer, with no replacements called. Guilt ridden over Kennedy’s death Willow became reclusive and disillusioned. Her whereabouts remain unknown.
Our Story begins 12 months later when a new Slayer is called.
That's the basic background leading up to the new series. Please give me feedback, anything will help, ideas, laughs, Casting, etc.
Look forward to hearing whatcha think...
