(Sorry my post is so late on my date. I do not have access to my computer, so I'm adapting a bit. Mods please adjust my tags if you want!)

I present Giles haikus through the seasons! Enjoy!

To kick off my SOG contributions, I have some fun and games to play and download. Enjoy!


The first is a maze, help Giles rescue the Scoobies from the Haunted House!

Help Giles Save the Scoobies! )


The second is a word search with a trivia element.

Beneath the cut is a list of fourteen Giles quotes from various episodes from all seven seasons. You must first figure out what episode the quote is from, and then you can search for the episode title in the puzzle.

What did Giles say? )

Select random words for each type and fill them in to their appropriate spot when you read the story. It usually makes a pretty crazy and hilarious story! Have fun!

Feel free to post your word lists in the comments (just mark which story it goes to), so we can all join in the hilarity! :D
 
 
For my second offering today, I have made an icon songset for Mad World by Tears for Fears (I love the Alex Parks version myself). All images are from the episode The Dark Age, telling the story through the song.

I’ve made one full set with the lyrics, and created a mirror set without the text as well. Please feel free to take and use, please just credit me! Thanks, and enjoy! :)

EDIT: Had to fix the page a bit, had some errors with a few of my icons not loading. All are up now!

I can’t believe it’s another year, and summer already! I’m thrilled to be a part of SOG again, and much thanks to our lovely mods for hosting us all. I know I said this last year, but I do mean it - I’m very behind on reading and commenting on SOG posts and I will continue to go through, so don’t get confused when you get comments on previous years’ posts! RL really shouldn’t interrupt fandom. Ha! :P

A few years ago, I started something a little different in SOG - fun and games with Giles! To start things off, I wanted to do that again, but with all new games and trivia.

First up, a Giles-centric word search! There are 15 Giles-associated words to find in a puzzle. If you get stumped the answers are highlighed in a cap at the bottom.


Giles Word Association Search )

Our second fun game is a trivia challenge! This time, all questions revolve around the great man that brought Rupert Giles to life - Anthony Stewart Head! Let’s see how much you know about the man behind the Watcher...

Answers are at the bottom.

Who are you ASH? )


Third and final game is another version of name-that-episode! This time, I’ve cropped caps of Giles holding and using different tools and items throughout the series. See if you can spot which episode each picture is from! Answers are at the bottom, all caps are from Lady Manson.

What are you holding, Giles? )


ANSWERS HERE )
 
 
I've created several drabbles examining Giles through different periods of his life on one specific day: January 30. I randomly picked a date (one that had enough "this day in history" action) and wrote a moment of Giles' life on that day, including the events that occur then as well.

I put the year above each drabble. No warnings - that said, they're not all happy events on 1/30, nor was Giles' life all sunshine and flowers. All work safe and rated G. The usual disclaimer, I own nothing, I make no profit.

Enjoy!

Where was Giles on January 30? )
 
 
I am so behind in last year's and this year's SOG - I can't believe it's already my posting date! I promise to continue going back through all the entries, many of you will continue to receive delayed comments! :)


I like to challenge myself with icons - so this year for SOG, I took inspiration from the awesome haikus of last year's Giles Haiku Day! I selected just a few from the group and have made an icon that, to me, represented the idea or moment of that haiku.

And to make it even more challenging, I made one regular icon, then another with one or more textures created by the talented Jordanna Morgan/Wolfbane.

Thank you so much to the lovely haiku writers for allowing me to play with their toys for this entry. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them! :D I have attached each original haiku to the icons, with full credit to each writer.

Please feel free to take and use, please just credit. Enjoy!

no teasers, all icons under here )
 
 
I have made an icon set to accompany my first SOG offering this summer, a fanmix you can check out and download here.

There are two icons for each song on the fan mix - one with a lyric, one blank. Feel free to take, but please credit if you use! Thanks!

For my first SOG offering, I have a Ripper-inspired fanmix. These songs were released and popular from the time Giles left school and avoided the Council and his destiny, approximately 1970-79, and very possibly would have been ones he would have listened to and enjoyed during that time. I have figured this timeline roughtly from the Giles entry in the Buffy wiki, but I am ignoring specific details it includes, and only refer to the minimal details we get regarding Giles' time as Ripper from the television canon. In other words, I'm ignoring any details brought to light by any comic, S8-9 or otherwise.

Below are images - one cover and two rears with track listings. I have also included detailed liner notes - I really tried to do a lot of research for this, so I hope they are helpful. You can download all the tracks, with images and notes, at this link HERE.

Please note I have marked this as being G/FRC, which the images and text all are. The songs may have some FRT language in them, though, as a heads up.

Enjoy!

Hello all! Sorry for the delay in posting today! I had too many ideas and plans rolling around for my second posting day, and in the end, I've decided to do something completely different! (mods....I hope this is okay....!!!)

It's fun and games with Giles!

::cue game show music::



First, let's start off with a fill-in-the-quote crossword puzzle! I have complete faith that all you Giles fans will recognize these quotes. Should you need the answers, though, I will post them under a cut at the bottom of this post.

What did Giles say? )


Our second fun and games is a Giles trivia challenge! I have tried to come up with some great questions that you may know right off the bat, or may take you a little rewatching to remember! Again, answers at the bottom under a cut.

How well do you know Mr. Giles? )


Our third and final game involves knowing the episodes visually. A small cropped image of Giles will be provided and you'll need to....Name That Episode! )

I can't really give out prizes, but I'm happy to make a "hooray!" or "congrats!" icon for anyone who wants one! Just message me with a request!


ANSWERS )

Thanks for playing!
 
 
Just getting this in for my posting day!! Sorry for the delay in my second posting today. I've had phone troubles, so I spent hours figuring that out. My apologies!

Here is the second installment, with ficlets from season 5-7. Same disclaimer - I own nothing, I make no profit. Again, these follow randomly selected prompts for Giles-centric ficlets. Enjoy!

Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] littleotter73 for her beta on season 5, but any issues/mistakes in 6 and 7 are all mine. They're untested - sometimes I like to live on the edge.

Season 5 prompt: Using several c words )

Season 6 prompt: Wolfram & Hart )

Season 7 prompt: Travel locations )
 
 
Hello all! I'm very excited about another wonderful Summer of Giles! For my first posting date, I have some ficlets.

Titles and context is provided under each cut. No warnings, but I did grade this at PG for some mild language. The usual disclaimer, I own nothing, I make no profit. BIG thanks to [livejournal.com profile] littleotter73 for some quick and dirty beta work. Thanks for seeing through my crazy. : )

I gave myself a personal challenge for this post. Using a random number generator, I selected different prompts from [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr to compose a bunch of Giles-centric ficlets. I have one from each season, and for now I'll post seasons 1-4. Enjoy!


Season 1 prompt: Any literature before the 1960s )

Season 2 prompt: Crack! (crackfic) )

Season 3 prompt: Alternate universes )

Season 4 prompt: Riley )

Continuing the theme, here’s seasons 6. Since Giles was no longer a regular character, there are significantly less icons, as there were less episodes in which he appeared. They are still in order, however.

As always, want, take, have. Please just credit me! Thanks! :D
