For [livejournal.com profile] pookitoots who was the other person (along with [livejournal.com profile] gilescandy, [livejournal.com profile] the_huffster and [livejournal.com profile] protoneoromanic who I made posters for earlier in the summer), who signed up for THREE days this summer...

I really struggled with what to make for this years Summer of Giles, but I decided that because it is number ten I should make something a bit different.

So, I made a playlist focussed on Giles when he is lonst and alone, trying to find his place in the world - and then I made a poster for each song.

Now, I'm really sorry, but I struggle with formatting on LJ as it is and I completely failed at formatting a multi-media thing like this so HERE is a link to all of the posters on Tumblr - each has a youtube video of the song underneath it so you can experience both at the same time.

There is also an 8tracks playlist HERE if you just want to listen to the music.

Enjoy!
(and sorry again for hosting it on different platforms)

Once, a long time ago (literally two years), I put up a movie poster request post. And even though it’s a couple of years later, I hope the authors will forgive me for the delay and still be excited. I also wanted to thank a couple of people who have put some amazing hard work into pimping and early sign ups of this Summer of Giles. Without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to a bunch of awesome fics by [livejournal.com profile] seldomifever, [livejournal.com profile] skargasm, [livejournal.com profile] 0_ruthless_0, [livejournal.com profile] gilescandy, [livejournal.com profile] kaymickbee, [livejournal.com profile] harmony033, [livejournal.com profile] loreofthefaye, [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight, [livejournal.com profile] protoneoromanic, [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano, and [livejournal.com profile] xspike4evax!

Here’s a teaser:

The story unfolds here... )

I'd just like to say a word of thanks to the mods of this community. I came to this fandom with an obsession for Spike. I liked the charachter of Rupert Giles, but I've never really spent a lot of time with him. Signing up for this round of Summer of Giles has made me have a deeper look at him. I've enjoyed that look. I hope my contribution shows this. I hope it is a worthy tribute to a fine charachter in a well loved show, and the finer actor that played him.

Before the summer started I opened up an graphics offer post for anybody who wanted a movie poster. Due to some ongoing computer problems I wasn't able to get them all done for today, but I do have the first 8! And hopefully I'll be able to finish the rest for my next posting day. In the meantime,

I give you the scary, the wondrous, the heart-pounding, the silly, all in visual form, many that were posted right here at SOG. )

Please check out the stories these are based on (each image links to the story) and let the authors know if you liked!
 
 
Hi all! I hope you've been having fun at SOG so far! For my first day I have the following for you guys - they're Giles + a bunch of characters doing his debonair thing in a Film Noir kind of way. Directly inspired by film noir movie posters (and for at least one, using it as the base for a manip) I give you 8 different Noir!Giles...

teasers:

As the first line of the Maltese Falcon runs....[Rupert Giles]'s jaw was long and bony, his chin a jutting v under the more flexible v of his mouth. )

Hello fellow Giles lovers!

I have an offer to make to all of you Giles writers out there. I'd like to make "movie posters" for your fics. If you haven't written the fic yet, that's fine. If you wrote the fic ages ago, that's fine too. If it's still a WIP, that's ok as well. As long as Giles is one of the main characters, you're golden.

So if you'd like to have a fic poster that might turn out like this, or this, or this or some combo from those pages and out of my imagination,click here to find out more info )

Sorry this is so late in the day all! Thank you guys so much for offering Giles!definitoins in my last post - I took these words from the suggestions made and got as many as I could done between then and now. I hope you like!

Oh Giles, he is a man of many words, but few absolute definitions )

Hi all!!! I'm so excited to be posting here at another SOG. Thank you so much to
[livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano and [livejournal.com profile] seldomifever for running this awesome summer!

I have below a bunch of images with some of the awesome lines Giles said (ok, one that was said about him, but I couldn't resist)

this way to the sexy fuddy duddy )
 
 
Here are a couple more of that 'series' I was talking about.

For Giles & Wes though, it's not so much one single moment, but instead a series of them standing just too close to each other, looking so cute in their suits and cleaning their glasses together.  The way Wes is so absolutely silly and Giles is so sardonic just makes me grin. 

So i give you 'The Two Watchers' )

[livejournal.com profile] polly1esther 's hilarious vid The Odd Couple totally reminded me that for a brief moment (well, sorta half a season) Giles & Spike lived together as uneasy roommates.  There was teasing, and blood drinking, and some astonishment at the guitar playing.  

So I give you my version of the odd couple )

And finally... there are very few times when Giles and Oz directly interact (though I can think of some fairly fraught ones pertaining to Oz getting to his cage on time in highschool). But there's this one moment in Season 4 in Harsh Light of Day where Oz says what he says in the poster below, and Giles almost stops what he's doing to listen to an album, when they're in perfect accord. And I LOVED that moment.

So I give you 'Music Men' )

Hope you like!

and again, you are welcome to use these images in any capacity you like (even to make new artworks of them!). All I ask is that you a) credit, and b) let me know what you do so I can see what you made :D

I'm doing this series (so yes, there will be more) of moments when I felt like Giles had great chemistry with another character.  One of my favorite comes from Bad Girls, when Wesley first arrives, and Buffy and Giles are in perfect accord.  Just thinking about that scene makes me smile.

so i give you 'please' )

The second actually comes from a moment that makes me tear up just a little - it's from the musical, when Tara and Giles are both acknowledging that they can't continue their relationships with two other people in the same form - because that's destructive for them both.  The staging of this scene is so beautiful it breaks my heart.  I always wondered what might happen if they were able to comfort each other, even just as friends.

And so I give you... 'stay' )

Hope you like!

Last year for Summer Of Giles, my only contribution was a wallpaper featuring Vampire!Buffy and Giles. This year, I intend to have a fic and a video based on it as well (which will be ready for my second date, hopefully). This is a little teaser poster I created for the video and fanfic! There are three different versions of the poster.
