Title "Break"
Author [livejournal.com profile] oldwickedsongs
Characters Giles, with 'appearances' with Randal, Jenny, Buffy, Quentin Travers, and a myriad of other Watchers.
Rating PG-13 for angst
Word Count 995
Author's Note/Warning Spoilers for "Never Leave Me" or as my friend calls it- 'Watchers go boom' I can't be the only one annoyed with the fact they never touched on how Giles reacted to watching an entire order that's been around before cities disappear into ash.


Randal is sitting on the kitchen counter, knees pulled up to his chest, watching Rupert as he made tea. There were three girls asleep on the bed and the television was on low- they’d fallen asleep watching the Simpsons dubbed in German. The newest girl, Franka, was curled with her arms around Molly. They looked alike, they could be sisters. The other girl, a Turkish Romani named Nina had tried to stay awake with Giles but eventually sleep had caught her as well.

They were all tired. Giles especially; even if he took great care to make sure the girls never suspected. Most of them trusted him already, because he was a Watcher and their own had allowed him to take them but a few, who hadn’t been contacted or hadn’t been known until the Seers found them; tended to regard him with suspicion. Those he had to earn their trust.

What have I become My sweetest friend Everyone I know goes away In the end And you could have it all My empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt I wear this crown of thorns Upon my liar's chair Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair Beneath the stains of time The feelings disappear You are someone else I am still right here )

The Uncomfortable Enemy: A Rupert Giles fanmix

Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul.
