Title: The Ivory Tower: Part 3
Author: mischiefmagnet
Rating: Say it with me… T.
Pairing: Indicators of future Giles/Buffy
Fic Summary: An AU season 4 scenario. What if Giles was never sent to be Buffy's Watcher? Things get interesting at UC Sunnydale when Buffy meets a handsome history professor who is English, variably tweedy, and happens to have a pocket full of stakes. A stand-alone retooling of 'The Freshman', with other installments hopefully to follow.
Word Count: Entire fic around 15,000
Disclaimer: Standard disclaimers apply. Not mine, just playing. Will give back when finished (maybe).
Spoilers: Definite spoilers for everything up to the beginning of season 4, despite the AU nature of the story.
Notes: There are some literary/pop culture/historical references in this fic, which I will explain in notes at the end for those who are at all interested. Also some info on characterizations. This fic contains a few instances of borrowed/slightly altered dialogue from S4 x 01, 'The Freshman'.

Xander and Buffy call on Giles for backup, and the fight at Sunday's lair gets… tense. )

Good morning! I'll be offering more Giles/Buffy fic goodness today. Cheers to fellow poster [livejournal.com profile] laurtew for starting off the day with a B/G bang! My fic will be offered in three parts, this being (obviously) the first. This is my second year here at [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles and my first time posting. I hope everybody enjoys the fic!

Buffy's first few days at UC Sunnydale are a mixed bag, and Professor Giles should have checked his class list more carefully... )
