Title Welcome Home, Rupert Giles
Author brutti ma buoni
Rating PG
Genre Gen, ghost story, canon compliant
Words 3100
Setting the autumn of 2001, following The Gift. It stretches the time between Bargaining and After Life somewhat, probably to about a week.
Thank you to my flisties [livejournal.com profile] rahirah, [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy, [livejournal.com profile] velvetwhip, [livejournal.com profile] gillo, [livejournal.com profile] moriwen1, [livejournal.com profile] snogged, [livejournal.com profile] lutamira. When they heard my distressed meeping over not being able to complete my first fic, they rallied with prompts. The prompts are what is haunting Giles – except Beer Good's, which was 'a spell that can only be broken in an American accent'. That one may have been quite twisted for this, but it is there.

Title Wisdom of the Ancients
Author Brutti ma buoni
Rating PG13, though some scenes contain non-explicit sex
Setting Pre-series to post-series
Words 1500
Note Based on actual canon evidence that Giles knows *something* that isn't purely Western culture: Bargaining, part one: think of the breath as chi. Air as a, a life source… I see no harm in imparting a little Eastern philosophy. Chakras have a whole bunch of meanings and interpretations; these probably aren't internally consistent. But then, I doubt Giles truly believes in them.
Note 2 Because I like looking at pictures of Giles, I have also made art for this. Bad art, but art nonetheless. You really don't have to comment on that part... *g*

Greetings! My proper posting date isn't till July, but I thought I'd do a fun fill for one of the unclaimed dates - because weird little animations are my weakness. (Though they don't embed on LJ for no reason I can understand.)

So here, for your delectation, is an xtranormal vid of Giles and Buffy sometime in high school. It's probably season 3, but definitely not The Prom we see in canon.

Setting It's after the Apocalypse. If you want to picture the Apocalypse, picture the start of Battlestar Galactica mixed with the mindwipe tech from Dollhouse. The bad kind of Apocalypse.

Title: Threesome Threeways II: Learning to Be Flexible (the God King Timeslip Remix)
Author: Bruttimabuoni
Pairing: Giles/Illyria/Spike
Rating: R
Words: c600
Warning: threesome...obviously
A/N: In an effort to become more self-referential, I’ve remixed my own fic...twice (tis the season, but this is getting out of hand). Learning to be Flexible is the original, posted earlier in this comm, and I suggest starting there if you haven’t read it before; otherwise this may not make sense. This is Illyria POV, but I promise there is Giles in the mix.

Illyria thinks thinky thoughts...

Author: Bruttimabuoni
Pairing: Giles/Illyria/Spike, plus Dawn, safely away from the action
Rating: PG13
Words: c600
Warning: threesome, obviously

Turnabout is fair play. It's Spike's turn.

My second and final posting. It is a tiny bit different to the first...

Title: Learning to Be Flexible
Word count: c1550
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Giles/Illyria/Spike
Summary: three non-teenagers stuck in the stronghold of the Slayerettes. They can’t play gin rummy all the time... Can they?
Warning: Gratuitous smut, verging on crackfic. I really have no idea where this came from. But you did say the community welcomes ALL pairings...


Enter Spike, stage left...  )

I have two fics to post for my first ever contributions here. The second will follow after a decent interval, as smutfic doesn't really mix with bibliography... But I like to think the combination evokes Giles in all his many aspects. (Or something.)

Title: A Rose By Any Other Name
Author: bruttimabuoni
Rating: G
Medium: Fic(ish)
Word count: c320
Warning: Pedantry
Summary: Giles is a librarian, yes? And librarians classify, especially if they’re attached to vast ancient organisations which need to keep track of their information. And if you’re a librarian you’ll certainly understand how loaded classification can be, and how much it tells you about the society which created it. I just hope this translates to the rest of the world...
