Pairings in the fic: Giles/Xander, Giles/Jenny, Willow/Kennedy, Willow/Tara, references to Anya/Xander and Giles/Ethan

Okay, so I fail. I wrote a long song and dance about why I fail, but then erased it. As my mother says 'Fine words butter no parsnips.' No, really, she says that. This will have to be a first story in a series. Part two coming to my live journal soon.

Also, I've started a bingo card and am using this towards one of the squares. I'll say which one at the end, because it could be considered a spoiler.

Con crit always welcome. I'd especially like to hear if I've committed any 'Americanisms.'

I've been without electricity or internet for 3.5 days (and yes I do live in the so-called developed world, why do you ask?) so this is really only half a chapter instead of the intended completion of the story. I promise to finish by the final posting free for all at the end of the month.

We'll just pretend I live where it's still July 2 as I post this, okay? Unbeta'd, so please let me know about typos and unwarranted Americanisms.

Sorry to get only one chapter up today. The original plot had a small whole in it that bugged me more and more as I worked on this. This morning a whole new (better I hope) direction for the plot occurred to me, and I'm reworking everything I've written. Those of you paying attention will also notice that there has been some tweaking of the pairings for this fic. There will be either 6 or 7 chapters in total. My next posting day is July 2.

Inspired (this chapter especially) by reading [livejournal.com profile] antennapedia's wonderful Watcher's Child stories.

I'll be posting chapters throughout the day today. The fic isn't all the way to where I wanted it to be, but I've pretty much run out of time to write. So this will end up being the middle story of a trilogy. I haven't figured out a title for the next part yet.

This chapter is FRC. The overall fic will be FRM, in honor of windandsummer who requested Giles/Xander with an R rating. Bee - I'm sorry, I know I promised this sooner, but RL fell on my head.

This is the sequel to If the Phone Don't Ring, You'll Know It's Me

I meant to have more than the first chapter ready to post, but (as mentioned above) RL fell on my head. I am still digging my way out with a teaspoon. I will finish the story during Summer of Giles, I swear. I have another posting day next month.

Here's chapter one.

What would happen if Xander were on time, just for once?
Warning: Mentions of canonical and non-canonical character death, angst
Disclaimer: They belong to Joss. If they belonged to me, Giles would have slapped Wesley. Repeatedly.

There were two folks signed up for today. I'm the second. I usually write happy, fluffy fic. I don't know why I'm giving Giles such a hard time this year. Possibly the influence of the way RL is going.

Hey! It's after midnight. That means it's my posting day.

By Any Other Name

The fic is 3500 words, plus I went a little overboard on the author’s notes.
Giles and Ethan preslash or friendship, Giles/OFC, all pre-series
Summary: He’s changed his name from time to time. She changed hers once, as well.
Beta’ed by Mr. Jay.
Disclaimer: Ethan Rayne and Rupert Giles are the property of Joss and Mutant Enemy.

This is a prequel to The Need to Believe, which was set during season 3. An incidence in this story is also mentioned in my first fanfic Come Hither, set post-Chosen, but I don't know yet whether Come Hither is really in the same verse as The Need to Believe and this fic.

Warning: Giles is going to seem like an incredible hypocrite, if you don’t read The Need to Believe first.

I didn’t try to convey the different English accents used here through altered spelling because (1) it’s hard to write and hard to read and (2) I don’t think I could accurately convey the accents anyway. I hope they will be clear from the word usage. I’d appreciate feedback on that, though.

Luck favors the prepared, Ethan thought
