Thank you very much to [personal profile] 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.

These are the concluding chapters (3 and 4) of Part IV in the Sanctuary Series. You can find the other parts of this series linked below.

PART I – Sanctuary
PART II – Anchor
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.


PART IV – Labyrinth


Hi, all! My contribution today is the first two chapters of a new story:

Title: The Wedding of Frog Fears and Anthropomorphic Nonsense

Summary: When Willow and Giles' iPhones decide to get married, and an ill-timed wish gets made, chaos inevitably ensues.

Title: All of Him
Author: [personal profile] littleotter73 
Pairing/Characters: Giles/Buffy, Willow, Xander, Original Characters
Rating: FRM
Summary: When an accident causes Giles to lose his memories, he only knows Buffy as the depressed Slayer he left back in Sunnydale after her resurrection six years ago, not as his wife and the mother of his son. Takes place five years after "Crossing Lines" and three years after "In the Moment."
Disclaimer: Just playing in Joss' sandbox.
A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017
A/N 2: Many thanks to [personal profile] il_mio_capitano  for the herculean beta effort! Special thanks to [personal profile] quaggy , who helped flesh out a rampant plot bunny into a story late one evening over chat, and also to foreverbooks for the encouragement and sanity checks.
A/N 3: It is not necessary to read Crossing Lines and In the Moment before hand, but it is recommended as there are references to both in the story.

All of Him: The beeping was incessant and not at all conducive to reducing the massive headache he was enduring. Or the throbbing in his right wrist for that matter. In fact, from what he could tell, most of him was quite sore.

Title: Crossing Lines

Author: littleotter73

Rating: FRM

Paring: Giles/Buffy
Word Count: 3943

Summary: When a misunderstanding has Buffy and Giles not seeing eye to eye, harsh words are said, challenges are thrown down, and lines are crossed. But maybe that’s not a bad thing.

Setting: December 2003, Post Chosen, no comics, no AtS past BtVs canon.

Beta: Many thanks to foreverbooks.

A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017.

A/N 2: This story and the one I posted before it In the Moment are prequels to a larger story I will be posting next week titled All of Him. The idea was that I was going to post this story as a bonus on the free for all day and post the larger fic today, but I was not able to get it done in time, hence the reason they are chronologically posted out of order.

Guilt: Part I, Part II, and Part III

Word Count: ~8000

A/N: I am still working on my prequel to this series The Misadventures of Ru and Clara, unfortunately the scope of the story was far greater than I originally anticipated and I knew I would not have it ready for my first posting day. I still hope I can have it in time for my last posting day, or by the free for all day. If not, I will probably save it until next year’s SoG. That being said, because I had originally planned to post the first installment of the Misadventures series I hadn’t any intention of posting something to the Chronicles series, this story was a last minute replacement when I learned I wouldn’t have the other fic ready in time, and was completed in less than five days, so I want to send a special thank you to [personal profile] the_huffster for giving it a once-over and to [personal profile] littleotter73 for letting me bounce ideas off her.

A/N 2: Spells performed are actual spells in the Buffyverse (from both the series and the comics), they can be found here

Notes: I apologize for the delay in posting this final part. I seemed to have been wrestling with it all summer (and a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] littleotter73 for listening to me moan about it all summer!). I suppose it's appropriate that I'm finally posting on Labor Day, since that's traditionally been considered the end of summer in the States. Thank you to all for a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to next year already! (Oh, and I've posted it on AO3 for those that prefer that platform. I'll eventually put it up on FF.Net too.)

Summary: There's a prophecy about Slayers and their Watchers that Giles has kept hidden all this time. )
Hello, everyone! Thanks to the mods for hosting this wonderful space for all Giles fans! And thank you to my fellow fans! I'd hoped to have a long fic done by my posting day. Except RL had other plans for me. Oh well, may I present a short fic for your amusement:

Gathering up his guitar and sheet music, Giles bowed graciously and murmured thank-you’s amidst a thunderous applause, a little dumbfounded at the warm reception....

Title: Legacies
Author: [livejournal.com profile] littleotter73
Characters: Buffy/Giles
Rating: FRM
Setting: Two years post Chosen, no comics.
Word Count: 23,150
Summary: After helping to rebuild the Council, Buffy and Giles team up to search out artifacts and investigate supernatural issues on its behalf. This assignment takes them to Germany along the Mosel River to meet up with a man who has a couple of medieval manuscripts in his possession belonging to the Council and to the Giles family. What sort of wisdom can a long dead ancestor impart after 750 years? And what were his books doing in the possession of someone not affiliated with the Council?
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] foreverbooks, to whom I am totally indebted for stepping in to help when other arrangements fell through. This story is a behemoth and she took it all in stride.
Disclaimer: Just for fun, not profit
A/N 1: Special thanks to my friend emerys for help with some of the French background - it goes deeper than what is in the actual story, but it was fun to create that world, and to my friend Regan for the Latin translation.
A/N 2: This story was not supposed to be this long, but it evolved and needed to be told in its current form. I didn’t write it in chapter form, so there are no real natural breaks for me to parcel it out on LJ which is why I am posting on AO3 and linking to Summer of Giles.
A/N 3: Dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano, thank you for being you.

Title: Sanctuary
Author: DHW
Rating: FRAO
Pairing: Giles/Buffy
Setting: Several years post Chosen.
Word Count: 7,630
Warning: Mildly kinky D/s. And sex. Quite a bit of that, actually.
AO3 Mirror: Here

Summary: Buffy's imploding. Giles thinks he has just the solution to her little problem.


Mildly kinky sex in an enchanted garden.

Yeah, that about sums this up. Very high brow literature <*/sarcasm>

A/N: No angst. Much sex. Little plot. So shameless. Could probably do with a bit of a beta *mumble mumble* DHW is a lazy sod who almost didn’t finish in time *mumble mumble* but never mind. Hopefully it’s not too painful or wildly OOC!

Disclaimer: Not mine. They belong to the almighty Joss. I’m just playing in his sandpit. Sad, sad times.

Title: A Brief Discourse on the Nature of Infinity
Author: DHW
Pairing(s)/Characters: Giles/Buffy.
Rating: FRAO
Setting: Post Chosen, Post Season 8 (comics), Future AU
Word Count: 6,464
AO3 Mirror: Here

Summary: Sometimes forever can get a little complicated.

Author's notes: This is cannon compliant all the way through the season 8 comics – possibly even further (haven’t finished season 9 yet). If you haven’t read the comics, all you need to know is that after his death at the hands of a possessed Angel (Twilight, yo!), Giles is resurrected as a 12-year-old boy but with all his memories intact. Since both Giles and Buffy seem to suffer from an inability to stay dead, I thought this would be a fun concept to play with.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] dragonyphoenix who was lovely enough to beta this piece for me and make Giles sound much more Giles-y.

Disclaimer: Not mine. They belong to the almighty Joss. I’m just playing in his sandpit. Sad, sad times.

Once upon a time, so very long ago, the world held no shadows. A riot of colour and life, it spun gently on its axis in a galaxy of stars. And upon this world the sun never set and the night never came. There was no evil, no demons waiting in the dark. Instead there was only sunshine and light and love. Here the good were good, stalwart and true, safe in their happily ever afters. There was no fear, no pain.

In this world, no one ever died.

Life was a fairytale, more myth than anything, and it began like this:

Once upon a time, there was a man who lived again. And again. And again.

His name was Rupert and he was lonely.
