Note: DHW is having computer problems and can't access what she meant to post today. So, we are swapping days. She'll - hopefully! - have her lost tale back and ready to go on Sunday the 23rd which was originally one of my posting days, and I'm posting in her place today.

Rating:
PG
Setting: Season 1 of BtVS
Word Count: 5381
Note: Many of these scenes were written for prompts at
Taming the Muse.
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.  )

Sorry this was SO, SO late, real-life stuff hit me with a vengeance. (Also, as sometimes happens, the story turned out longer than expected.) So:

Title: the Final Cut
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aadler

Title: What's Next? (Part of a larger, still-unfinished work)
Author: Quaggy
Rating: PG/FRT (Swearing)
Setting: Post-Chosen, immediately after.
Pairings: Giles/Buffy-ish (kind of, maybe)
Notes: I'm still working on the third part of Somewhere Close By. While I'm hoping I'll be done by tonight, I wanted to offer something up just in case. This is the first scene of a slightly longer work called Denouement, but I think it can hold up as a one-shot. (A few weeks ago, I had delusions that I would be able to finish both of these fics for today. Life, as it does, made short work of those plans.)
Summary:  In the moments after Sunnydale was destroyed, Giles tends to his Slayer.
ETA: It took almost a year, but I did finish and post the fic as part of 2017 SoG.
In the moments after Sunnydale fell... )

Title: The Chronicles of Ripper: Guilt Part III
Parts I and II can be found Here: Part I Part II
Author: will_conqueror1
Rating: FRT, though there are some rather crude innuendos, if you think I should up the rating I will.
Pairing: Giles/Ethan implied. There’s really nothing more than innuendo, even in the flashback scenes where I imply that they are lovers.
Summary: The second installment in The Chronicles of Ripper. Takes place in 1980, three years after Randall’s death. Giles can’t sleep and he goes to an old friend for help.
Note: It’s not necessary to read the first story in the series, but you can if you want. It can be found here
