The ninth, and penultimate story in this series about Dawn & Lisa is almost a mirror of the previous. This time we get a look at the close relationship between Lisa and her Father who, in my head canon, are almost more friends than father and daughter; becoming so when her mother died very early in Lisa's life.

A/N: Trillium is at the centre of a triangle of Hellmouth's, situated in Cleveland; Syracuse and Washington DC; known as the Tri-mouth, it has become the main base for the Slayer's. Another base has been established near London, under the command of Kennedy; others will, in time, follow.

 

 

Lisa had always kept a diary; written letters to her mom, often shared with her dad.

She also wrote lyrics; especially as her love of the more theatrical musical genres came to appeal more and more, delighting her when she was able to tease Dawn about her boyband fixations.

She won an essay contest with an essay about Oscar Wilde: Byron and Edgar Allen Poe, which won a hurried meeting between her teachers and father, before they, chastened, by his forceful support of her, allowed to enter it into the statewide contest.

He recognised it helped her deal with the loss of a mother she had never known; being too young to have any memories of her. He also saw her develop into a more intellectually confident version of her mother; indeed he found it fascinating and tearfully beautiful to see the woman he'd loved being reborn before his eyes.

So, as he listened between the pauses in their telephone conversations, he determined not to lose the woman his daughter had a chance of becoming; so full of potential, to the narrow-mindedness of his wife's family.

So he began to write her a letter, from her mother.

And himself.

In this, the eighth of the ten stories about Dawn & Lisa, we have the introduction of a new, and in future stories, both in this verse and others, major character. I have yet to fully describe her in mind yet; which is why she is not named here. She was inspired by the decision of the King of Morocco to establish a venue for the training of female clerics to minister to the spiritual needs of female muslims. She is a Slayer herself, but her clerical training, and spiritual outlook, will not allow her to take part in the violence of being a full Slayer.

A/N: Trillium is at the centre of a triangle of Hellmouth's, situated in Cleveland; Syracuse and Washington DC; known as the Tri-mouth, it has become the main base for the Slayer's. Another base has been established near London, under the command of Kennedy; others will, in time, follow.

 

 

Dawn had volunteered to become apprentice, of sorts, to Xander, and was the one usually called on when there were projects at Slayer Central than he alone couldn't handle. He was working on the gym when the new Chaplain came to them, needing help with a multi-faith pulpit-cum-altar she wanted built.

They quickly came to talk subjects beyond carpentry; Dawn most curious how a woman could become trained as an islamic cleric, while the Chaplain seemed most concerned with Tara and her defiant solitude in the face of the help offered by all concerned.

One clear afternoon, they went for a long stroll along the riverside; crossing via bridges a few times and taking in the views. There, finally, Dawn opened up about the tensions that had built up between her and Lisa; unexpectedly, in Dawn's mind, causing the very public fight on the campus, before their silent decisions to call separate cabs.

It also became clear that the Chaplain was also gay, though she seemed to prefer privacy where that was concerned; Dawn gaining her trust by making no outward mention of her obvious attraction to one of the Slayers.

Dawn though gained the courage she needed to mend the rift with Lisa.
