This is just a joke/idea.
I've been watching all these young people on YouTube react to the Buffyverse for the first time, and after enjoying the vicarious (and often hilarious) thrill of reliving the first-time Buffy experience, my brain began braining.
Set during the Middle Ages, this (obviously) alternate universe story follows the Bellfleur sisters, two Parisian noblewomen suddenly forced to flee their home. They move to a small town populated by the most unusual characters.

|Persia White as Lady Agnes Bellfleur|
|Phina Oruche as Lady Olivia Williams|
|Charisma Carpenter as |
Cordelia of Sunny Vale
So I thought...what if there was a not-quite-noblewoman who wouldn't shut up about her inconsequential small town? Except in this case, it is consequential to the Bellfleur sisters because it's rumored to be fairly "liberal" in its attitude towards the mystical.
Cecilia is the unenthusiastic betrothed of Sir William...and the muse of all his poems. Cecilia is allegedly from Sunny Vale, born and raised, but she's an orphan and no one remembers ever meeting her family. She's also rich, but no one knows why or how, seeing as she doesn't own any property.
Lady Janna is Rupert's wife. Descended from the wealthy Kalderash Clan, she's converted to Catholicism in attempt to assimilate into Sunny Vale society better. Like her husband, she's well versed in the occult, but chooses to leave that life behind her.*
A mysterious acquaintance of Willow's, Drusilla arrives in Sunny Vale where she's introduced as an Italian noblewoman. She soon catches the eye of Sir William, who quickly notices that he only ever sees her at night. (Note: she's not a mad seer in this version. We already have a seer.)
A baronet of Sunny Vale, Sir William is infamous for his dreadful poetry. He's a genuinely nice guy though.
|Kali Rocha as Cecilia of Sunny Vale|
The son of a cranky old baron who often travels, Wesley stays behind in Sunny Vale to manage his family's estate. He's a perfectly eligible bachelor, but like Sir William, the girls just aren't feeling him.
|Anthony Steward Head as Sir Rupert Giles|
Famed scholar and swordsman, he's Lord Wesley's former tutor and now adviser. He's also extremely knowledgeable about the occult, but prefers to keep that under wraps even though the town of Sunny Vale is no stranger to the unusual.
|Robia LaMorte as Lady Janna Giles|
|Alyson Hannigan as Willow|
A mysterious enchantress posing as a courtesan. She's currently staying with Wesley, but their "relationship" is mainly for show.
|Juliet Landau as Drusilla|
|Bianca Lawson as Lady Kendra Young|
|Sarah Michelle Gellar as Lady Anne Buffington|
|Nicholas Brendon as Alexander Harris|
|David Boreanaz as Mister Liam|
Lol...Harmonia is the French princess with whom the Bellfleurs and Cordelia lived. She's not the brightest star in the heavens, but she doesn't let that get in the way of her ambitions.
*I opted for this characterization out of respect to Robia LaMorte's real life conversion.
