Summary: With the library gone, Giles finds out where he fits in the group, with a little help from Buffy.
Timeline: Summer between Seasons 3 and 4.
Word Count: ~4800
Disclaimer: Characters aren't mine, I just like playing with them.
A/N: This was supposed to be a very short one-shot, which turned into a slightly longer one-shot. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted a really shippy B/G fic, so decided to dedicate one of my days to my OTP. And because I finished writing this while on vacation, and it being a holiday weekend I didn't have a beta.
A/N 2: Comments not only welcome, but appreciated.

A/N
Thanks to the mods for making this community such a great place to hang out every year. And apologies to my fellow Giles lovers. I’m way behind in my reading, so if I haven’t commented on something yet, it’s on reading list and I will get there.

Oh, and happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks!

The last couple of years I’ve written fairly sombre ficlets for SoG, so this year I present some pure fluff.

Ok, guys...  I've been a good girl for a very long time.  My vids are always respectful and plausible.  Well, this time I'm waving my ship flag high.  My girl, Willow, is finally getting the man of both our dreams!

Therefore, warning - there is sexual content in this video.  (I did, however, show it to my own mother and she said it was "just right".)

So, here we go.  
Willow/Giles - We belong  (Because it's from Willow's pov.) 

Song by the magnificent Pat Benatar!

Enjoy!!!

This week in art, we have Giles featuring in three very creative wallpapers. In fic, we saw how clothes played a role in various stages of Giles’ life. In another story, an old ally comes to visit Giles in England and aid him in a new fight against evil. Then later, he and Anya take an insightful trip to LA. In the second installment of Sign of the Times, a teenage Giles experiences love and loss in his travels. And finally, Giles and Buffy discuss the education needs of the new Slayers.

The first three chapters and the prologue act as one single episode in my head and I'm gonna post them as such here. On AO3, they are posted seperately

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.

Before I post my first chapter I would like to introduce you to...

Hi, guys!

I wanted to have a lot more, but I ran out of time, so for starters, you've got two pieces of artwork, a Wallpaper and a sig.

Hope you like, and will have plenty more for my next date.

So while our dear Captain is off getting some much needed R&R in the sun and surf, I have the helm! BWUHAHAHAHAHA! It's been another fun and fabulous week here at Summer of Giles that started off with a bunch of haikus about our favourite Watcher. This week Giles considered Buffy's request after the events of Tabula Rasa in Alternate Plans, was the subject of observation from an outsider in People Watching, and provided comfort and aid to a de-aged Buffy in a fic inspired by the comic!verse in Kids Today. We were also treated to another installment of the Chronicles of Ripper series in The Chronicles of Ripper: The Book of Thoth. Then we had another story about teenage Giles in the comic!verse dealing with the effects of puberty in the first chapter of Sign of the Times. Lastly, Giles and Buffy learn the value of Father's Day in Parenthood.

Title: Parenthood

Author: [personal profile] will_conqueror1
Rating: FRT
Pairing: Buffy/Giles
Summary: Mother’s and Father’s days in the Giles household
Warning: Character death
A/N: This year my posting day happened to fall on father’s day. Father’s day falls in the middle of SoG every year, however Mother’s day never does, so I decided to do a series of short ficlets of Mother’s and Father’s days throughout Giles’ life.
A/N 2: Got it done just in time. It's not quite 11 in my time zone, though I realize for most of you Father's Day came and went already. I would have posted it earlier, but I only started writing it four hours ago.

Word Count: ~1300
