Title: A New Beginning

Summary: With the library gone, Giles finds out where he fits in the group, with a little help from Buffy.
Timeline: Summer between Seasons 3 and 4.

A/N: This was supposed to be a very short one-shot, which turned into a slightly longer one-shot. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted a really shippy B/G fic, so decided to dedicate one of my days to my OTP. And because I finished writing this while on vacation, and it being a holiday weekend I didn't have a beta.
A/N 2: Comments not only welcome, but appreciated.

Beta extraordinaire, as always: [personal profile] thismaz

Thanks to the mods for making this community such a great place to hang out every year. And apologies to my fellow Giles lovers. I’m way behind in my reading, so if I haven’t commented on something yet, it’s on reading list and I will get there.

Oh, and happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks!

The last couple of years I’ve written fairly sombre ficlets for SoG, so this year I present some pure fluff.

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....

I haven't played with haikus for many years, so I thought I'd drum up a few for my second day. So much inspiration to be found in SOG content!

Knife, chainsaw, coatroom
Seriously. All are dead
Read: actual size

Rock on wild Ripper
I’m listening dear Watcher
Where are his glasses?

Bunnies, bunnies, fear
Thousand year old Fear Demon
You kiss very well

Watcher, Protector.
Should I leave her behind now?
Really need this Scotch

Glasses off, sexy
Glasses on, axe in hand. Hot

Title: Legacies
Author: [ 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: [ 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 [ 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.

“Will you wait for me?” she asked, turning to face him.


“In heaven, will you wait for me?”

Author's notes: This is very much the opposite of my last fic – definatley no immortality here. Please be warned, this is very, very sad. It has some major character death/illness in it (well, soon to be character death). So please don’t feel you have to read it if you find this sort of thing very upsetting. =)

There will be joyful, unashamed smut on my next posting day (Sunday), which I hope will make up for the sad, angsty nature of this.
