A little vid I did 'cause I couldn't find any of Giles & Dawn.  I love their relationship 


Title: A Father's Love/ A Watcher's Love
By: Wake Up In A Coma
Characters: Giles & Dawn
Song: Collide
Artist: Howie Day

Notes:  Hi guys, so my vid today is different to other's that I've done for our beloved Watcher in that it features DAWN!  The inspiration came from this when I was rewatching season 6 and decided to hunt down some Giles/Dawn vids but couldn't find any.  Anyhoo, this post/vid has two titles because it can be read either romantically or as a father/daughter relationship (which as I type that strikes me just how weird that is.)  My intention behind it was to be viewed as a father/daughter relationship but, after raiding my music library for a fitting father/daughter song, I couldn't find anything to fit them, so I went for the least problematic one I could find (which is still pretty problematic - but I was kinda sold on it from the first line, 'the dawn is breaking' ... :) )  

I hope you enjoy it.  Have a lovely weekend, guys x

I had meant to post this as part of the other chapter but I got confused and counted the prologue as the third. :| But that just means I had more time to fine tune it. Here it is: will try to have another chapter up today.

Title: Ripper

Summary: After the destruction of Sunnydale, the defeat of the first and the aftermath of the destruction of the Watcher's Council, Rupert Giles, the Scoobies and the Slayers return to England. Over 2 years later, the Watcher, living in his family home outside of London, is visited by an old ally, sent to aid him in the fight against evil.

Note: This story takes place 2 years after the events of Chosen and over a year after the events of Not Fade Away. Everything that happened during the run of both Buffyverse shows are canon. BtVS season 8, is not. Not for this story. This story is an AU that negates the events of the comics, though there are some elements that will be. The characters of the Fairweather sisters are prominent characters in this series. FCed by the Head sisters because a) I love Emily Head since she started in Emmerdale and b) I had her as a similar character in a different story but when I heard Joss's plans for the Ripper series I made some changes. This story is a work of fanfiction. Prominent characters belong to Joss Whedon. Though the Comics aren't a part of my universe (though I do still love them) because of certains actions taken by certain vampires against certain watchers, there are elements of the comics, especially season 8 that I will be using: little tidbits that such as the direction of characters since the end of the shows. Any chapter that contains any comic information will be noted in the chapter notes. I will also note any OCs. My head is a little fuzzy and my math is worse so if there's any confusion on timeline or anything at all call me up on it and feel free to ask :)

Rating: FRT Disclaimer: I own nothing, except the story.

Characters: Rupert Giles, Cordelia Chase, Lavinia Fairweather, Sophronia Fairweather, mentions of the Scoobies and Angel Investigations gang

Pairings: Rupert Giles/Cordelia Chase/Lavinia Fairweather/Sophronia Fairweather -- non-romantic.

This was supposed to be a series of ficlets of Giles doing routine errands, but RL did what RL does, so there's only one.

The episodes that never were

[personal profile] lunabee34 says: "Tell me about the episode (or book chapter) that never appeared in one of your fandoms but should have."

Star Trek TNG: "The Price" is such a god-awful episode that when it leaves those two Ferengi in their shuttlecraft stranded in the Delta Quadrant and doesn't bother to tell us what became of them, that's not even the worst of its crimes. (The worst of its crimes is probably what Crusher and Troi wear to do aerobics.) Anyhow, yes, the Ferengi were acting like jerks, but they didn't deserve to die the kind of death that you'd die stranded in a shuttlecraft 30,000 light-years from home. I think either they should reappear as part of the Borg collective, or the Voyager crew should find them.

Due South: More Ray&Ray. Doesn't everyone want more Ray&Ray? Make RayK go to meet a new informant and discover that it's the Bookman.

The Princess Bride 2: the story of how Buttercup wound up being the Dread Pirate Roberts.

We've had another damn fine week of fic. Please please please can you drop a few words of thanks once you've read. It really does make all the difference to the writers.


In summary....This week Giles has had his smoochies on. He's experienced an unforgettable moment, then forgotten it ;). We've started an intriguing new story and welcomed updates from two long-running excellent works.

- There's a group of people who detest it on principle. Asked to define it, they create a definition that basically sorts everything into two categories: Things I Hate, Which Therefore Belong To the Genre I Hate, and Things I Like, Which Obviously Do Not Belong To the Genre I Hate. (Ask a classic rock fan who hates country about Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Or a classic sci-fi fan who hates fantasy about Pern.)

- Traditionally, about a third of it was worthless due to sentimentality.

- More recently, another third of it is worthless because capitalism endlessly churns it out in identical shiny plastic pieces.

- When it's bad, there's nothing worse.

- When it's good, it captures the human spirit so well that it brings tears to your eyes.

Title: All of Him
Author: [personal profile] littleotter73 
Pairing/Characters: Giles/Buffy, Willow, Xander, Original Characters
Rating: FRM
Summary: When an accident causes Giles to lose his memories, he only knows Buffy as the depressed Slayer he left back in Sunnydale after her resurrection six years ago, not as his wife and the mother of his son. Takes place five years after "Crossing Lines" and three years after "In the Moment."
Disclaimer: Just playing in Joss' sandbox.
A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017
A/N 2: Many thanks to [personal profile] il_mio_capitano  for the herculean beta effort! Special thanks to [personal profile] quaggy , who helped flesh out a rampant plot bunny into a story late one evening over chat, and also to foreverbooks for the encouragement and sanity checks.
A/N 3: It is not necessary to read Crossing Lines and In the Moment before hand, but it is recommended as there are references to both in the story.

All of Him: The beeping was incessant and not at all conducive to reducing the massive headache he was enduring. Or the throbbing in his right wrist for that matter. In fact, from what he could tell, most of him was quite sore.

Warning: Inappropriate language; violence; death of a canon character

 

Appearances could be deceiving, take Masa Luna for example. Sure, up front it practically cloned a 7-11, if you ignored the offerings of Adobadas potato chips and Jarritos, a surprisingly refreshing soda, especially the lime. The back of the store, however, that's where the real action was: a late night grill offering up the best Mexican and Salvadorean fare this side of L.A. That fyarl messing the place up? So not necessary.  )
