Hi all, I'm new to the comm but really happy to be here. Cause Yay Giles! For my contribution I made two duality-focused picspams (with some meta to go with it) about why Giles is an awesome man, specifically in regards to Willow.

Beneath the cut & safe for work )

mods: I seem to be having issues with tags. It won't add my creator tag (already in the tagset) and if I could get a 'giles & willow' tag that'd be fab!thanks!
 
 
Hello all! Sorry for the delay in posting today! I had too many ideas and plans rolling around for my second posting day, and in the end, I've decided to do something completely different! (mods....I hope this is okay....!!!)

It's fun and games with Giles!

::cue game show music::



First, let's start off with a fill-in-the-quote crossword puzzle! I have complete faith that all you Giles fans will recognize these quotes. Should you need the answers, though, I will post them under a cut at the bottom of this post.

What did Giles say? )


Our second fun and games is a Giles trivia challenge! I have tried to come up with some great questions that you may know right off the bat, or may take you a little rewatching to remember! Again, answers at the bottom under a cut.

How well do you know Mr. Giles? )


Our third and final game involves knowing the episodes visually. A small cropped image of Giles will be provided and you'll need to....Name That Episode! )

I can't really give out prizes, but I'm happy to make a "hooray!" or "congrats!" icon for anyone who wants one! Just message me with a request!


ANSWERS )

Thanks for playing!

In the great tradition of this comm, I'm proud to bring you more of my favorite moments of Giles from Season 4! Again, remember, this is my favorite Btvs season, so I have an unholy number of images behind the cut for you to remember, and enjoy, of our favorite Watcher!

And to lead it all off, since I'm starting at Beer Bad (and going until we're done with A New Man), I give you this little exchange from Giles and Xander:

Giles:       I can't believe you served Buffy that beer.
Xander:   I didn't know it was evil.
Giles:       You knew it was beer.
Xander:   Well, excuse me, Mr. 'I spent the sixties in an electric-kool-aid-funky-Satan groove.'
Giles: It was the early seventies and you should know better. )

So, this is Kate talking to you now (although I know [livejournal.com profile] elizabuffy kind of agrees with me... ) but Season 4 is my favorite Season in the Buffy-verse.  It makes me happy to rewatch these episodes, and I love how much everything is changing for everybody.  It's also, in terms of Giles, the year he seems to be quite at lose ends.  While it may have called for some soul searching behind the scenes, I for one am profoundly grateful it also brought us more wonderful sides of our Watcher - sweaty jogging Giles, chainsaw Giles, and blazer wearing hanging out with the college  students Giles, to name a few.  And since it's my favorite season, EB & I have only made it up to "Beer Bad" in this post.

Which really means ... there's more still to come, but come and visit the pretty now!!

Giles (coming back from a jog): Hello. Buffy: You run? Giles: And jump. And bend. And, occasionally, frolic. )

This way to the introduction of the other watcher - and other things )

Vintage Giles circa Season 3... the last year he actually got to say he was an authority figure.  And yet, the year that some might thing his authority got destroyed (hey, dosing your slayer will do that sometimes). 

this way...for the first installment of Giles S3 moments )

* also, MASSIVE thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] lostgirlslair for helping to gather caps for this season!  She rocked our world with great Gilesy moments.

Thanks to everyone who's been playing along with us so far with our Fav Giles Moments!  We're so glad you're having as much fun seeing these posts as we are creating them ... and don't worry, more to come over the following weeks!

~e! and Kate

Here's where the uber!angst of the season begins... and even though it's understated... all it makes us both want to do is pet our poor Rupert Giles.  Season 2 really was a great season that developed his character - the best and the worst of times, so to speak.  So, without further ado, here are... well... some of the worst trials Giles had to go through (and maybe some good stuff in between?)

Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after. )

I don't know if you all remember our grand tradition from last season, but we're back with more of our Favorite Giles Moments for you! And today [livejournal.com profile] elizabuffy  and I would like you to stroll back down memory lane with us… back to Season 2… back when some things were simpler, but when Giles' life was just about to get incredibly complicated!

boy what didn't we find out about Giles this season? )

We hope you enjoyed this return trip to memory lane. The last burst of Season 2 goodness to come soon!

~e! and Kate

Wow, so looking back at screencaps of Season 2, there were some adorable moments, but ... MAN our Giles got a little worked over! We found out about his darker past, he fell in and out of a relationship, got shot with an arrow, tortured, and kissed by Drusilla. Don't worry: the pics in this post of of the happier, innocent first episodes of the season. Plus? We have cute random moments at the end!

this way...for the many Giles moments )

Hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane. More of Season 2 goodness to come soon!

[livejournal.com profile] elizabuffy and I were thinking.... we've had so much Gilesy goodness on screen over the years.  There are great moments, sad moments, little firsts. 

Part of the power of the character is definitely due to the talents of Anthony Stewart Head.  He has fantastic expressions and wonderful mannerisms.  Beyond that, the writers, including Joss, created a pretty complex person to be the show's guide. 

So we thought we'd share some screencaps of these golden moments (and explain at least a little bit about why we like them so much)!  Come with us on this little trip down our Giles' memory lane.  This will be the first of six posts - one for each season with our favorite Watcher!

A season full of firsts )

Also, the screencaps beneath the cut are all sharable, so if you want to take them and make icons, headers, etc - go for it!  (heck, comment to this post too, we'd love to see what you make)  And if you think we've forgotten one of your favorite golden moments of season one, comment and link to YOUR favorite Season 1 screencap!
