Title:  Andumbulu, Part Three
Author: vinniebatman, written for  [info]fall_for_sx.
Fandom: BtVS
Spoilers: Season 7 of BtVS, Season 5 of AtS.  Ignores the Buffy comic
Pairings: Spander
Rating/Warnings:  Adult for the gay man on man loving! (yay!)  Oh, and major character death.
Summary:  When Xander goes missing in Africa and is feared dead, Dawn and Spike are sent to investigate.  What they find is a secret behind the creation of the slayer line.
Disclaimer: I do not own the Buffy characters or any characters  from the film Taafa Fanga. 
MAJOR Author's Note:
  This story was inspired by a film I saw called Taafe Fanga (Skirt Power) from Mali, and is based loosely on the aspect of the Dogon spiritual beliefs shown in the film.  The film is is very entertaining, but is primarily about women's rights and gender equality.  It also featured some of the local Dogon beliefs.  The information I have on the Dogon and Tellem cultures comes from wikipedia and the above film.  I was able to locate.  What information I did find was about the basics of the Tellem and Dogon beliefs, but little else.  Therefore, the interactions and powers of the Tellem and Andumbulu in this story are creations of my own mind and are, as far as I know, untrue.  Aside from the basics of the spirits, all else is fabrication on my part.
A/N 2: All translations are in mouseover, thanks to the lovely Ms. [personal profile] noandwhere.  Also, I don't know french that well, so all french translations are from some random online source.
Beta: A million thanks to the wonderful [personal profile] suki_blue.  You are beyond awesome!

Fandom: BtVS
Spoilers:
Season 7 of BtVS, Season 5 of AtS.  Ignores the Buffy comic
Pairings:
Spander
Rating/Warnings:
  Adult for the gay man on man loving! (yay!)  Though it's not right away.  Oh, and major character death.
Summary:
  When Xander goes missing in Africa and is feared dead, Dawn and Spike are sent to investigate.  What they find is a secret behind the creation of the slayer line.
Teaser:
   He no longer feared death, but instead welcomed what would be the end of a hard life, filled with pain, injury, death and heartache.  At the age of 26, he was broken and tired of life, an old man in a young man's body.
