Notes: His people are vaguely Japanese/Asian, so Megam is the Goddess, the form the universe takes when it feels like interacting with individual elements within itself.  Teicho is vaguely ‘appearance of a beginning’.  Kamin is, well, the realm of the Kami.  As for his name…I have no idea.  Maybe it’s due to invaders or contrasting cultures? Apparently Nako is a girls’ name that means south child, but I don’t know.

It is one of the great fails of the last season of Buffy that we never got to see the First torturing anyone else.  Because, let's be honest.  This is the Buffy crew.  They've had so many people die around them.  I would've liked to see more of that, which maybe makes me cruel, except for the fact that I like...
It's not just to watch them suffer.  Or be angsty or hurt each other.  They do enough on their own.
It would've felt more like a final season to look back on everything that came before and reflect on the deaths and friendships and whatnot.  I mean, people rarely remember Jesse's name (this is people who have watched the show multiple times and I've seen a vast majority of the episodes once.  Crazy, right?) but he was Xander's friend and Willow's friend and he died and Xander killed him.  Or the demon wearing his face.  That's such a pivotal moment and of course Willow and Xander would shrug it off like it was nothing because they're the king and queen of compartmentalization but it was not nothing.  It would continue to haunt them, particularly out of the blue, because that's how guilt works.
Also, it would've made the First that much more dangerous.  We don't see the First do that much.  It's mostly the ancient vampires that are really, really hard to kill, and controlled Spike, and it's so easy to focus on the physical threats because they were shown more.  But this is the First.  The embodiment (ha!  given that it's not actually corporeal...no?) of the concept of all Evil with a capital E.  It would twist the knife.  It would remind them of all the people they failed to save.  It would take on the faces of all the people they loved and lost and taunt them.  You know when Spike's working for Adam and he knows exactly what to say to get them all not only doubting each other but doubting themselves?  The exact words to punch a hole in someone's gut?
The interesting thing about this is that there's a similarity.  Spike might've been "de-fanged" (i.e. not a physical threat) but he knew exactly what to say to break them.  The First should've been like that.  Except so much more so.
Finally, I didn't go into complete detail here.  I showed the first times that Jesse and Cordy showed up, but they were back.  Along with many others.  Partly that's because the imagination tends to be worse than a certainty.  I'm betting my reader's minds can conjure up worse than anything I can write.  (At least, I've found that's true when I'm on the reader's side.)  Also partly because it triggered a panic attack.  (Which I've experienced, if not, luckily, too recently, so I'm writing from my own experience there.)  (It being the First, its words probably magically burn onto the synapses, though.  Or maybe it'll whisper again in his nightmares...)
Wow, did not intend for that to get long.

Turns out I’m the one manning the phones, now, since pretty much everyone else actually has things that they’re doing.  In general, I guess, I’m useless, but that’s okay, since I apparently was able to stabilize this world, which is good, because I like it.  It felt like a dream, but given everything else it probably wasn’t.

Anyway, I answer the phone, the video line anyway, and realize I know who it is simply from that hair.  “Welcome to the family.  When are you going to come and play Monopoly and Mario Kart so we can wreck any friendly feelings you had for us?”

The line is silent for a moment, then the man chuckles.  “Sounds great, but now’s not the time.  Out of curiosity, you’re…”

“Yeah, but Xander and I deal with loss by goofing off.  Buffy goes and beats things up.  I’m Dawn.  There’s a lot of us to remember, sorry about that.  No one will hold it against you if you can’t remember all of the Slayers’ names, though it’s easier than it had been.”

I know he’s trying to decide whether or not he should come back for his daughter, because he went all the way to a different dimension just ‘cause she needed him (‘course, that’s not really all that weird with our group), or whether he should track down Xander.  It’s not really all that easy of a choice, since there’s danger everywhere, and both of them (I think) know how to take care of themselves.  There’s definitely something about a serial killer that bugs him, but he doesn’t elaborate.  Probably why he wastes so much time just talking to me talking about Xander.  Johan now.  God that’s weird.  (Don’t tell my sister I’m swearing, she still thinks she’s mom and needs to use soap.  Ugh.)

“Your hair’s cool.  I don’t usually see old hairstyles like that.  It must be a pain to do that every morning, though.”  Given the fact that his friend (who hasn’t introduced himself yet) is making ‘abort/you’re dead’ gestures in the background, it’s a touchy subject, but I get a big smile instead before he asks me another question about Xan-Johan.  Apparently I stayed on the safe side of the topic.  I hope Xander doesn’t say anything stupid.  He hasn’t really had family before this besides us, and he might not show it but he’d be devastated if he made his grandpa hate him because of some stupid comment.  Then again, this is Xander we’re talking about.  I’d try to warn him, but I’m not sure when he’ll be in his hotel or if he’s maintaining field silence or whatever, because there are definitely issues on his end.

Anyway, the usual stuff—read the official Speedwagon Foundation notes that are probably in this same folder, so it would be silly for you to skip them anyway.  If you want to, that is.

Dawn’s Notes on Crazy Diamond

Stand User: Josuke Higashikata (thank goodness for the internet, or I wouldn’t have spelled that correctly)

Appearance: I vaguely saw something pink and hearts when he’d been fighting.  As the Key, I might be able to see these things, but it’s not really that easy, and I got a super headache.  Then again in human form I really shouldn’t be able to use any of this stuff.  So maybe it’s a miracle I got this far?  (By the way, the whole ‘I’m the Key’ thing is supposed to be a secret.  Buffy would be really mad, but it’s not like it’s not an open secret anyway.  Just, you know, be careful about his stuff.)

Main Power: ‘Fixing’ things, apparently.  It doesn’t work on the dead, but.

That’s another thing I shouldn’t mention to sis, at least, not at the moment.  She’s upset enough.

But.

He could probably have saved Mom.  Fixing cancer is probably a thing he could do, right?  And it could probably be seen as spontaneous remission.

Buffy couldn’t handle that now.

Then again, he couldn’t use it all over the place.  He’s got the cure for cancer right there somewhere in his soul, but if there’s anything I’ve learned from my years in Sunnydale, it’s that everything has a price.  Still, I don’t think he would’ve thought twice about saving the mother of a friend of his grandson.  He’s that kind of guy.

Besides, it’s coincidence, but her name’s Joyce.  I’ve noticed the naming pattern.  She might as well have been family, so we are too.

He was able to ‘reset’ Josephine to her non-drunk state, which may I say is just such an improvement?  And it works as healing, too, and he can use it to go through walls and have them reform after him which would’ve been so useful when we were running…oh, you know, over the dozen times in Ye Olde Crater in the Ground.

If I think about it, there are probably other uses for the thing I could think of.  But I’m sure I’ll get more of a clue when I talk to him more.  He’s cool, and unlike everyone here he’s got time to talk to me.  For a grandpa, only his hair is really old, and even then it’s kinda cool.

              “Okay, I guess I lied about the numbering system, because there is one numbering thing that Gibbs does follow. The 40s are used for apocalypse-adjacent situations.”

             Dawn nods. “Good to know. But I’m pretty sure you didn’t just call about that to tell me about that.”

             “Actually, this is kind of serving as my check-in. The situation’s all hunky dory now, but it was kind of a mess before then, so. Hence the knowing about the numbering, but not sounding all squeaky and panicked voice-wise.”
