1996, and Buffy Summers has just accepted her role as the Vampire
Slayer. After the destruction of her high school, she flees
to Las Vegas to sort out her life - but her faithful sidekick
Pike, the first Scooby, quickly realises that he's more hindrance
Scott Lobdell and Fabian Nicieza take a look back at a chapter
of the Slayer's life which the show never revealed - its takes
you where the TV show never did, back to the roots of everything,
in the summer before Buffy arrived in Sunnydale. And there's
a tall, dark, handsome stranger keeping an eye on her during
those dangerous nights in Vegas.
Las Buffy is a pretty good idea. It fills the gap of Buffy
history between the film and the series. Buffy's family are
fighting, she's just burnt down her old high school and she
cant cope with it all, so she runs away with boyfriend Pike
to Vegas, in the hopes that she can set things straight, one
way or another. Of course, being the Slayer nothing goes simply,
and so when they both get jobs in one of the Casino's, it's
just their luck that they just had to pick the one with supernatural
Buffy starts some research, but Pike's mind is elsewhere.
He's worried that he's in the way of the Slayer, and that
one day he'll get her killed. Of course, what they both don't
know is there's someone else watching out for the Slayer.
Good old Angel is on the scene, and without Buffy ever knowing
he's there they both manage to bring down the evil in the
gambling capital of the world. But there's still no happy
ending for the Slayer, Pike does in fact nearly get her killed,
and although he loves her, he knows what the right thing to
do is, and so he leaves her to fulfil her destiny.
Vegas theme does give a little tackiness to the story, however
all Buffy-philes will love to see a story than fills
a gap in the Buffy world.
