Oz, Tara, Kennedy and Buffy, Kendra Faith?

OK, so this is in response to this post where the challenge is to play a fanfic version of fuck/marry/kill where instead it’s slow burn/fake dating/enemies to lovers. (And I will say that since I’m putting myself into the mix I’m mentally aging the characters up to their mid to late 20s. Just so it doesn’t feel weird.)

Soo… For the first set I’d say that I’d definitely do a slow burn romance with Tara. She’s so shy and sweet that it would be worth taking the time to get to know her and help her get out of her shell. I mean look at this cutie! Definitely a woman who’s worth taking the time to get to know.

I guess I’d fake date Oz. Which is kinda funny, cause one of Oz’s hallmarks as a character is his sincerity. But I enjoy imagining some kind of contrived scenario where we have to pretend to date but actually we’re just friends, but wait, maybe we’re something more? Like, Oz is bi and has been mostly dating guys lately but his family’s not accepting so he decides to take a female friend as a guest to a wedding to make his mom happy?

Which leaves Kennedy with enemies to lovers.  I’m not a huge fan of Kennedy, but I’m not a hater either. (I actually wrote a Kennedy/Anya fanfic that I’m pretty pleased with.) I do think our communication styles would initially clash pretty hard. I can imagine us first meeting at a party or something and my first impression of her being that she’s a blunt, snobby, jerk. Not sure what she’d think of me. Then over time things might develop if she proved to have more sensitivity and depth than was immediately apparent. It’d be a whole Elizabeth/Mr. Darcy thing.

For the second set, I’d do the slow burn with Kendra. Again, she’d need time probably need a little more time, given her cloistered upbringing. There also might be some adjustment with coming to grips with her sexuality.

Buffy for fake dating. This is as much because she’s an adorably bad actor as anything else. It’d be fun to accompany her on an undercover mission and watch her flounder.

And then, of course Faith would be enemies to lovers. It seems only natural given her bad girl past and the fact that enemies to lovers is kinda baked into her most popular ship. I could see it being one of those things where you tell yourself not to date someone cause of their obvious emotional issues. But then you have a fling with them anyway and of course it’s even worse of a train-wreck than you imagined. But then maybe years later you’ve both worked out a lot of shit and you get back together and this time it’s actually pretty good. (Yeah, I dunno if it ever actually works like that, I’ve only done the first part of that equation.)

Prompt 3: Oz (from BtVS) meets the Leverage team!

“That was the best job ever!”  Parker exclaimed as she bounced into the bar.

“I have to agree with Parker, especially considering at no time did I have to jump off any buildings,” Hardison said. “Also, there was some sick tech that I may or may not have taken for my own personal use.”

“We barely got out alive!” Sophie said.

“If it wasn’t for Eliot,” Nate agreed.

“It wasn’t all that -” Everyone stopped and at the man sitting at one of the tables in the closed bar.  He had red hair, wore a heavy coat with a thick fur collar.

“Who are you?” Nate asked.

“Oz,” Eliot said.

“Eliot,” Oz said. “I need some assistance.”

“Done,” Eliot said.  “Where?”

“Wait, hold the phone,” Nate said.  “What are we doing?  We need a bit more information.”

“My pack is in trouble,” Oz said.  “We still call Eliot pack.  He’s the only one I could trust with this.”

“Pack,” Sophie said.

Eliot glanced around at the team and shrugged.  “It was years ago.  Got bit, found a pack that took me in until I got control,” he said.  “Oz and his packed helped me.  So I’m going to help him.  Come with me or not, but I’m going.”

“ … Eliot’s a werewolf!” Parker yelled.  “That explains so much.”
