Prompt: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kendra/Giles: nerd love - she could have been a scholar in another life


Mister Giles had fewer texts than Mister Zabuto, but Kendra noticed several rare books she wanted to examine closer. But the Order of Taraka took precedence, so she found the passage in Dramius and discussed it with Mister Giles. It was the first time she’d truly felt at home since arriving in America. Kendra had read much about death, both causing it and experiencing it and various beliefs surrounding it. Reincarnation fascinated her. Kendra was dedicated to her calling and honored to be a Slayer. But if she could choose to come back, she thought, she would be a scholar.

Poor Kendra! I hope she got her "other life."

She was a really interesting character and it was a shame to see her gone so quickly. Nice tribute!

Awww! I've never thought about things from Kendra's point of view. She always came off as the uber Slayer. But you make a good point. That might just be because she was never offered anything else. I wonder what she would have been like with Rupert as her Watcher.
Anyway, this was very good. I like how you managed to keep her in character. Great writing!

Ah, Kendra, and a deep and hidden facet of her personality. There's profundity here in such a small space.
