Remember, you should only post on your assigned days with the exception of July 31st which is a free for all day. Obviously there are timezone variations which may mean overlap in some cases, but if you blatantly post on someone else's day, we will be strict about it.
There are still blank days on the calendar you can book (see here).
You can sign up for one of these (see here).
For all the rules (see here).
If you have any issues, please contact the mods. We have an email you can use: summerofgiles @ gmail dot com
Finally as a headsup, there will be some Drabble Challenge days organised by the mods. The first of these will run from Tuesday June 6th to Thursday 8th June when we will play last line/ first line drabbles. See this post in giles_shorts to get the general idea. Full details on the first day.
Now, let the festivities begin!

My thanks also to my co-mod littleotter73 who, for the second year running, has had to pick up the reins as I dealt with family issues. You rock, my friend!
This comm is now closed for the year but if you are itching to take part in more Gilesy challenges, then our little sibling site giles_shorts has re-opened for prompts, games and chat. Come check it out. In the meantime, thanks again for making summer_of_giles the sizzlingist event ever!

( Willow wanted to drag her feet as they crossed the parking lot but didn't think it'd help. Miss Calendar was going to yell at her, Willow just knew it, and that wasn't fair. Okay, she shouldn't have taken the books, but it's not like she'd committed any kind of a crime. Sure, the books weren't hers, but they were in the library and she had returned them, just like you do with books that are in the library. Anyway, all she'd done was break a few taboos. It wasn't like anyone had gotten hurt. )

Thank you very much to dragonyphoenix, who was kind enough to swap posting days with me after my catastrophic technical failure last week.
It's an AO3 only link today (apologies), as DW is buggering around with formatting. Urgh.

PART III – Confluence
PART IV - Labyrinth (chp. 1+2)
Dating is a minefield. And that’s just when you’re single, nevermind in a definitely-not-a-relationship with a man who might technically be your boss.
If Buffy were a betting woman, she’d put money on Giles being jealous. But she isn’t, and he’s definitely not.
