Jojo's Bizarre Adventure/Buffy the Vampire Slayer AU
Summary: Timeline. If I don't get to writing this, someone else could use these notes.
-Unfortunately, we have to fudge with dates again. Otherwise, it’s entirely plausible. (Jolyne born 1992, Buffy born 19 January 1981, Jotaro born January 20-Feb 18 1970) He had her when he was ~22, so if we go with that, he would have had to have been born 1959…nope, so pushing it forward. It’d no longer be of the 90’s. Not focusing on this much, though.
-Buffy was born Jolyne Kujo. (Divorce when she was seven (1999) (keeping the 19th January date), 1998, and very sick; Jotaro was off helping Josuke. Joyce called him, drunk, and got Josuke instead.)
-1999, while sick and half-dying from (likely) gaining a latent Stand, Buffy witnesses her cousin’s mysterious death in a hospital.
-After Joyce got the divorce, Jolyne was really sad, but Joyce distracted her with “would you like to choose a new name?” Jolyne was really excited and didn’t realize what that meant. They had her name legally changed.
-2001 Joyce re-marries. Buffy isn’t particularly approving, and in frustration, Hank tells her that Jotaro abandoned her. Coupled with Jotaro’s “Hurt her and you’ll regret it” call, Hank convinces Joyce to get a restraining order.
-Same year, Joyce shortly calls Jotaro to tell him about the restraining order and that Buffy no longer wants anything to do with him.
-Spring 2007 Buffy becomes the next Slayer.
-Summer 2007 Hank and Joyce Summers send Buffy to the mental institution. They do not tell Jotaro.
-Summer-Autumn 2007 Hank divorces Joyce and tells her that it’s Buffy’s fault. Joyce, having some gumption of her own, follows him and learns that he’s been carrying on an affair with his secretary. She tells Buffy that she was the one who divorced Hank and about the affair, feeling that her daughter might otherwise suffer a relapse into ‘insanity’. They do not tell Jotaro. Buffy feels guilty anyway.
-Autumn 2007 Welcome to the Hellmouth.
-2008 Jolyne drowns.
-2008 Joyce says that Buffy just doesn’t like Ted because she thinks that Buffy doesn’t trust her judgement anymore.
-Summer 2009, between Season 2 and 3 Joyce drunk calls Jotaro and tells him that their daughter has run away from home. She tells him about Hank leaving, about the Slayer thing, that she’s had the restraining order revoked, and begs him tearily to find Jolyne. Jotaro can’t make out much her drunken rambling, but can translate enough of it. He gets the paperwork necessary to work at several of the aquariums of Los Angeles ready but does not submit any of it. He finds his daughter.
-They talk. Buffy springs the Slayer stuff on him, certain that he’ll turn her away or tell her she’s a freak like Joyce and Hank did. He does none of those things. “You’re still my daughter. And if you want me there, I’ll be there.” She cries and hits him until she falls asleep. He takes the punches stoicly.
-Jotaro talks more than Buffy’s ever heard him talk. He tells her that he’ll stay if she wants him to and that he won’t call her mother until she’s ready, since she’ll insist they come back immediately.
-When they return, Joyce is shocked at how well he took it until they get to the ‘vampires are real’ part of the conversation. She then states that obviously, he’s where the freakiness came from. Buffy stomps right back out again.
-Josuke, now age 24-25, volunteers to take over most of the active Stand User chasing duties. After he visits his grand-niece.
-Joyce apologizes for yelling drunkenly at Josuke over the phone all those years ago and offers him hot cocoa in apology. “I was wondering, but now I know that you fell in love with her hot chocolate!” Josuke exclaims and then blushes. Jotaro smirks.
