Hello! On behalf of [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano, [livejournal.com profile] rebelxxwaltz and I would like to extend our warmest welcome to Summer of Giles 2016!

To kick off the celebrations, reblexxwaltz and I decided that we would both write a short story (well, short for us!) to the same prompt and see what we could come up with and how different they might be from each other. We have often compared ourselves to Giles and Ethan (bonus points if you can guess who is who) so this was a fun exercise.

Prompt: Post Series, Giles and Ethan meet at a pub. Which path will their friendship take in the aftermath the apocalypse? The pub must be the World's End in Camden where rebelxxwaltz, il_mio_capitano, and I met up for our London 2012 adventures. Oh, and Ethan has to have a goatee.

World's End - Ethan

Title: The Darkest Age 1/2
Author: rebelxxwaltz
Rating: A mild M, I suppose, for dark subject matter and eventual violence. Could possibly pass for T.
Characters: In this part, Wishverse Giles and Wishverse Ethan.
Pairing: None, really, although there may be a bit of a leaning towards Wishverse Giles/Wishverse Buffy in the end.
Fic Summary: An AU scene from the Wishverse, including elements from The Dark Age. Wishverse Giles is confronted by his past on a dark and stormy night. When a dangerously altered Ethan Rayne seeks to reunite the old gang once and for all, will Giles have to save himself or will an unexpected ally come to his rescue?
Word Count: This part is less than 1,500 words. Whole story will clock in at less than 5,000.
Disclaimer: Standard disclaimers apply. They don't belong to me, but they are fun to play with. Especially the cracky Wishverse versions!
Spoilers: Yes, although this is blatantly AU. Spoilers for The Wish and The Dark Age in particular.
Notes: Unfortunately I was both busy and neglectful during SoG this year and wasn't able to finish in time to post this fic in its entirety today. The remainder of the story will follow during Tuesday's free for all! This is a bit darker than my usual, so be forewarned of a certain absence of humor.
Thanks: to [livejournal.com profile] littleotter73 for a welcome dose of encouragement and prodding during her present visit. :D
