** A true klepto, she continues to steal even ''after'' accumulating enough money to buy anything might possibly want or need.


A Fanfic by {{Creator/Dreamsmith}} that crosses over (Literally!) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Stargate SG:1, 'All Your Base Are Belong To Her' is a Dawn-centric story. In this version of things, Buffy stays dead following the events of the Season Five finale, while Dawn discovers that the ritual atop the tower has left her with some sliver of her 'Keyness' still active--namely, she can 'unlock' anything that ''can'' be unlocked. Two years pass, during which she deals with her rage and despair over her sister's loss by stealing everything within reach. Eventually Willow becomes fed up with this behavior, and attempts to mystically bind Dawn's powers. Things go awry, and Dawn is accidentally exiled to the ''Between'', the space between dimensions. From there she manages to make her way back to Earth... but it isn't ''her'' Earth. Also, because she slips back into the material world in a location that is specifically designed to facilitate the passage of living beings via wormholes, Dawn finds herself standing within a large metal ring... on the deepest level of America's most secure military installation. Needless to say, the military personnel she encounters are ''not'' amused.

* WhatBeautifulEyes: More than one character loses themselves in Dawn's lovely blue-green eyes (and she's [[VanityIsFeminine rather fond of them]] herself, too).

too).

Added DiffLines:

* TheHedonist: With no one to stop her, Dawn simply takes what she wants, steals money to stay in luxury hotels and spends her nights clubbing, dancing, drinking, smoking and having sex. The only thought she seems to give to the future is the ever-present worry in the back of her mind of the people hunting her.

Added DiffLines:

** Wellll... other than the fact that while Dawn is selfish, self-absorbed, bratty, and only interested in pleasing herself and indulging her every whim in a basically victim-free way, ''Glory'' is all those things, and is additionally a raving, cruel, omnicidal maniac who's not only willing to torture and kill anyone who even slightly inconveniences her, but ''enjoys'' doing it. So, while they share a few traits, Glory is light-years worse in the ways that really matter.

installation. Needless to say, the military personnel she encounters are ''not'' amused.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: While Dawn doesn't realize it, the descriptions of her self-centered vanity and her general brattiness means that she ends up coming off very similarly to Glory.

* RapunzelHair: Dawn apparently continued to grow her hair out after Buffy's death, as it is now well past her hips. It's striking enough that it's the first thing Jack notices about her, and Daniel notes it as he's assembling an mental profile of the mysterious intruder.



* ShesAllGrownUp: Though she was already quite pretty as a young teen, Dawn has come along nicely in the two years or so since the end of Buffy Season Five, and is acknowledged by most (though not all) of the characters as being legitimately gorgeous.
** Though by chapter 5, we learn that her appearance is shifting ''verrrrrrrrrrry'' slowly into something closer to Buffy's appearance, since she is, in effect, a mystical clone of her sister. Dawn doesn't seem too troubled by this, as Buffy was quite beautiful in her own right (though as she continues to lose height over a period of months she ''does'' hope that she doesn't end up as short as Buffy... or even shorter).



* WeightWoe: Dawn is shown in flashback to have gained a [[HollywoodPudgy moderate]] amount of weight after Buffy's death. When [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Faith]] expressed (admittedly mild) disapproval of this development, [[EveryoneIsBi Dawn]] was so stricken that she became mildly anorexic and driven to lose weight so as to [[DatingCatwoman please Faith]]. Flash forward a year, and Dawn has achieved her target [[HollywoodThin weight and figure]], and is fine with being constantly hungry if it means she can [[DistractedByMyOwnSexy love what she sees in the mirror]] and [[DistractedByTheSexy turn heads]] wherever she goes.




Added DiffLines:

* TheBrainlessBeauty: While it's a bit harsh to call her 'brainless', Dawn doesn't exactly come off as the sharpest knife in the drawer, either. She has moments of cleverness, and can definitely function well under pressure, but in general she seems to fit the stereotype of a girl who relies heavily on her beauty (and superpowers) to get her out of trouble, rather than her wits.

Added DiffLines:

* NonActionGuy: Dawn pretty much falls somewhere between this, and TheChick. She's not any kind of fighter, she doesn't ''want'' to be involved in 'adventures', but when bad things happen to her, she does her best to get through them, rather than whine and cry about it. (Well, she ''does'' whine and cry about it, but only after the danger has passed).

Added DiffLines:

* ProudBeauty: She's gorgeous and she knows it; Dawn happily lives this trope, both by her actions and in her inner monologue.



to:

* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: The story kicks off with Dawn accidentally slipping through dimensions (While under a great deal of stress), only to reemerge in an alternate world through Earth's Stargate. The unexpected appearance of a stranger in the very heart of the USAF's most secure facilility goes over about as well as you would expect. Chapter Two details Dawn's efforts to escape the base while being pursued by every Airman in the Mountain.


* DistractedByMyOwnSexy: Dawn readily admits to being quite vain, and at one point happily lists her favorite things about her appearance (effectively [[''VanityIsFeminine everything'']] about her appearance): beautiful face, pale, perfect skin, long, lovely hair, a killer body, and gorgeous blue-green eyes. While stealing armloads of clothes and jewelry from a high-end boutique which is well-equipped with mirrors, she has trouble keeping her eyes off her reflection--though to be fair this was partly because of her fascination with her newly-acquired GlowingEyes.

* MenAreStrongWomenArePretty: Dawn frequently wishes for a strong protector to, well, protect her, from the various threats and perils she encounters in the Stargate Universe. Perhaps excusable given how she was conditioned to expect this in her home reality, with first Buffy, then Spike, and eventually Faith all willingly devoting themselves to keeping her safe. With such powerful champions there to defend her, and with no physical powers of her own, Dawn seems to have accepted that she will always need someone to fight for her.

If danger threatens while a suitable champion is unavailable, her preferred tactic is to fight for her.run away and/or hide.



* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Dawn again, to an ''Epic'' degree. She was bad enough back in the Buffyverse, where a small remnant of her awakened Key abilities remained active even after Buffy sacrificed herself. When she enters SG:1's universe, however, and puzzles out her brand new Teleportation abilities, she lives this trope with joyful abandon. Basically, if there is something shiny, fashionable or valuable lying unattended anywhere in Colorado, she'll get around to taking it eventually.

* DistractedByTheSexy: A female to male instance, as Dawn ''immediately'' focuses her attention on Dr. Daniel Jackson. Various other random instances as minor characters notice that Dawn herself is quite attractive.

* FragileSpeedster: Dawn embodies this trope despite not ''actually'' having super speed. Her extreme mobility is derived via Teleportation, but in all other respects she's still a slender and untrained and non-athletic young woman who is in serious trouble if anyone manages to land a solid hit.

* HowDoIShotWeb: Upon arrival in the universe inhabited by SG:1, Dawn quickly discovers that being the [[TheChosenOne Key]] allows her to interface with the Stargate network on a fundamental level. She only learns what that ''means'' through a process of trial and error... all while being [[ChaseScene pursued through the entire Cheyenne Mountain complex]] by large numbers of armed and irate Airmen.

** Somewhat averted, on occasion, by her willingness to rescue herself from dire situations, so long as an actual fight isn't required to do so.
