Les MisÚrables de Sunnydale

ACT II PART I
 
Sunnydale High School, early morning. Faith, Andrew, Anya, Robin and the Potentials have gathered to prepare for the upcoming battle.

UPON THIS SCHOOL

FAITH
Here upon this school
We will build a barricade
In the heart of this town
We claim as our own.
Each one to her duty
And don’t be afraid.
Wait!
We need to know more
Of the demons to come!

ETHAN (entering)
I can find out the truth!
I’ve been evil,
Served the First,
Fought his wars,
In the days of my youth!

ANYA
The cannon fodder can fight

ANDREW
And with some might
Willow will cast

ROBIN
Spike may bite.

FAITH
No, he will do what is right.

Xander is walking the streets of Sunnydale.

ON MY OWN

XANDER
And now I’m all alone again
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without Angel, there’s no boyfriend
Without his face to say hello to

Although the day is near
I still can make believe he’s here.

Sometimes I stroke myself at night
When everybody else is sleeping.
I think of him and then
I stop myself from weeping.
The city goes to bed
And I pretend he’s giving head.

On my own
Pretending he’s inside me.
All alone, he’s doing me til morning.
Without him
I feel him thrust inside me
And when I need his help
I just pretend that he will save me.

In the rain, his tall hair shines like silver.
His shirt clings. I hope it rains forever!
In the darkness, his eyes are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me
Skinny-dipping in the river.

And I know, it’s only in my mind,
That I’m playing with myself and not with him,
And although, I know that he is blind
Still I say, “There’s a way for us.”

I love him,
but when the night is over…
He goes home, the sunlight makes him suffer.
Without him, the world around me changes.
The First will come and everyone
Will fight it through the dangers.

I love him,
but the fight now must be fought.
My obsession, it keeps me from my duty.
Without me, they’re missing a good Scoobie.
I must go now to join my friends and fight this evil power.

But I love him. I love him.
I love him, but only on my own.

Sunnydale High School, same group as before

BUILDING THE BARRICADE

POTENTIALS
Now we pledge ourselves to hold this barricade.

KENNEDY
Open the Hellmouth
And they will be met.

ROBIN
With Faith upon me
I was not afraid

FAITH
I gave you a screwing
You’ll never forget.

KENNEDY
This is where it begins!

ANYA
And if Andrew should die in the fight to be free,
Shielded with his body, there I will be.

ANDREW
Let them come if they dare.
We’ll be there.

ETHAN'S RETURN

ETHAN (Entering)
Listen my friends,
I have done as I said
I’ve contacted Chaos
I will tell what I can.
Better be warned
They have demons to spare
And our danger is real
We will need all our cunning to bring them to heel.

FAITH
Have faith,
If you know what their movements are
We’ll spoil their game
There are ways potentials can fight.
We may overcome their power.

ETHAN
Chaos told me of their plans.
There will be no attack today.
They wait for it to be night.
Before they kill us on their way.
Concentrate their power
Kill us with death rays

DAWN, BUFFY, WILLOW, XANDER, ANGEL and SPIKE enter.

LITTLE SISTERS

DAWN
Liar!
Good morning, Ethan Rayne
Lovely morning, my dear.
I know this man is evil
I will make my case clear.
He turned people into costumes –
A stupid thing to do.
His candy made Mom have sex with Giles
I just have to say “Ewww.”

And little sisters know
When bigger sisters fight
They’ll slay all of the vampires
Before they bite.
Let’s ready for The First.
We’ll use Buffy’s new scythe.
They better run for cover
Since it’s now first light.
Willow will do some magic
We are ready. Right?

ANYA (pats DAWN on head)
Bravo, little Dawnie! You’ve helped us at last!

KENNEDY
So what are we gonna do with this pain in the ass?

FAITH
Tie this man and take him
To that window pane.
Later we’ll decide your fate
Mister Ethan Rayne.

SPIKE
Take the bastard now and gut him.

WILLOW
Let us watch the devil dance.

XANDER
You’d have done the same, Ethan Rayne
If we’d let you have your chance.

ETHAN
Kill me now or kill me later,
I don’t really give a fuck
In the name of The First Evil
You all really suck!

ANYA
Though Andrew will not survive here
There are things that never die.

ANDREW
I am starting to get hungry
I want pastrami and rye.

FAITH
Focus now, Andrew Wells
We’re opening the mouth of Hell

GILES arrives at the high school and meets up with the group

MORNING OF ANGUISH

KENNEDY
Here comes Giles, Buffy’s Watcher

FAITH
Now go and find your place.

GILES
I’ll fight along side Robin Wood.

ANGEL
But hurry now and race.

ANYA
Bringers are heading over there.

GILES
There’s much that I can do.

DAWN
You see that prisoner over there.

KENNEDY
He says that he hates you.

ROBIN
A spy, his name is Ethan Rayne.

SPIKE
He’s gonna get it, too.

ANYA
They’re getting ready to attack!

FAITH (handing Giles a sword)
Take this and use it well
But if they overpower you
We might all go to hell.

Bringers attack the group. Some of the Bringers are killed, others flee.

FIRST ATTACK

ANDREW
By god, we’ve won the day!

FAITH
They will be back again
Minions will attack again.

BUFFY
For the First always lives
But he’ll never have won

FAITH
I will thank you, Giles
When our battle is done.

GILES
Give me no thanks, Slayers
There’s something you can do.

FAITH
If it is in our power.

GILES
Give me the spy Ethan Rayne
Let me take care of him.

ETHAN
The Hellmouth opens up
The world is going down.

BUFFY
Do what you have to do,
The man belongs to you.

FAITH
The enemy may be regrouping. Hold yourselves in readiness. Come on my friends, go to your positions; the day is coming fast.

GILES
We meet again

ETHAN
You’ve hungered for this all your life.
You’ll never win
How right you should kill with a knife.

GILES
You talk too much
There are no ifs, buts or ands.

ETHAN
Don’t understand.

GILES
Get out of here.

ETHAN
Giles, take care
I’m warning you.

GILES
Clear out of here.

ETHAN
Once Ripper, forever Ripper
You cannot pretend who you are.
You would feign being upright
Being proper and, well, uptight.
Kill me now, it’s all in vain
If you let me go, you pain
You’ll answer to Ethan Rayne.

GILES
You are wrong, and always have been wrong
I’m a man, no worse than any man.
I was never really part of your faction
I just took no action
To stop you from your evil spells
Your enchantments never served me well
If I come out of this alive you’ll find me
At number 1630 Revello Drive
No doubt our paths will cross again.

BUFFY, FAITH, SPIKE, and the POTENTIALS surround the seal to the Hellmouth. WILLOW and KENNEDY are in the principal’s office preparing for the spell. The others are split into three teams to prevent anyone from escaping: Group 1 - XANDER, DAWN and ANGEL; Group 2 - GILES and ROBIN; Group 3 - ANYA and ANDREW.

BLEED WITH ME

FAITH
Bleed with me to open it
We’ll go down and face our foes

RONA
Let us see what we face
Down in this lair

AMANDA
Buffy, we’re outnumbered
How do we dare?

BUFFY
Let’s fight them
And win the day.

WILLOW
Can you possibly kill me?
If I get dark, you’ll have to be.

KENNEDY
I have faith in you; you’ll make this spell jive
I know it will happen, just use your mind
I’ll be here, you must know, you’re fine.

ANYA
I’m so scared
How can this be?
Please do not
Make fun of me.

ANDREW
Think of happy thoughts
Lakes, candy canes
Perhaps bunnies.

ANYA
Bunnies? All will be slain.
Thanks, Andrew, now I’m ready.

THE BIG BATTLE

FAITH
Let us die, facing our foes
Make them dust. You know how.

SPIKE
I think the charm is working now.
I can feel my soul. Wow!

BUFFY
Let others rise
To take our place
Until the Earth is Free.

The battle begins. The fighting is intense. Willow casts her spell and makes all the potentials into Slayers. Kennedy takes the scythe to Buffy. Some Turok-han escape. Anya gets stabbed.


A LITTLE BIT OF PAIN

ANDREW
Anya, what’s wrong?
I saw you collapse over here.
Anya, you’re hurt
You need some help. Oh, God!
It’s everywhere.

ANYA
Don’t you fret, Andrew Wells,
I don’t feel any pain.
I know it sounds insane
Can hardly breathe some more.
You live, and now you must keep on
Wreak Vengeance in my name.
‘gainst evil go insane.
Don’t let them make their way through that door.

ANDREW
But you would live, Anya, you’re young and lean.
If you could heal yourself like Wolverine.

ANYA
Just fight for me and let it be
Remember me, don’t die for me.

ANDREW
You have lived hundreds of years
But it’s not enough
Your breathing’s become rough

ANYA
Leaving is not that tough
This fight will wash away my past
And you’ll go on for me.
And you’ll fight on, you see.
I’ll watch you all from Heaven at last.

ANDREW gets up and continues fighting.
The fighting continues. ANGEL is attacked by five Turok-han at the same time. He is stabbed several times and his Achilles tendon is severed. There are more casualties among the Slayers. SPIKE’s charm brings sunlight to the Hellmouth, killing the Turok-han. The living fighters make their way upstairs and to the bus.


XANDER carries ANGEL after covering him with a blanket to protect him from the sun. As he’s holding ANGEL in his arms, he begins to sing

BRING HIM HOME

XANDER
Powers that be
Hear my prayer
My dear friend
Needs some intensive care
He is old
He’s in pain
Let him rest
Make him blessed

Bring him home.
Bring him home.
Bring him home.

He’s just a man I might have known
If I’d been granted such a man
Potentials die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am scared
And so alone

Bring him peace
Bring him joy
I’m in love
I am only a boy.
You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
Could he possibly die?
Let him live.
Bring him home.
Bring him home.
Bring him home.
