I don't remember anything about Slayers not generally making it as long as Buffy had by season 7. I think Nikki in Fool for Love is a case in point. In season 5 and 7 the indications are that Nikki has a son and that she is in her mid-twenties. Most of the talk is about Slayers dying young, but nothing I remember about none of them living as long as Buffy.

S1 Prophecy Girl:

Buffy: (yanks the cross from her neck) I don't care! (calms down) I don't care. Giles, I'm sixteen years old. I don't wanna die.

S5 Fool for Love


Got really close. I slipped up, Giles. I've been training harder than ever and still I... (beat) And there's nothing in any of these books to help me understand why. I mean... look, I realize that every Slayer comes with an expiration mark on the package. But I want mine to be a long time from now. Like a Cheeto. If there were just a few good descriptions of what took out the other Slayers, maybe it would help me to understand my mistake, to keep it from happening again.


Yes, well, the problem is after a final battle, it's difficult to get any... well, the Slayer's not... she's rather...


It's okay to use the D-word, Giles.


Dead. And hence not very forthcoming.
