Title: Old Friends Make the Worst Enemies
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sahiya
Rating/Characters: PG; Giles, Martha Jones, the Doctor (briefly Jack Harkness, Buffy, and Xander)
Word Count: 4300
Disclaimer: All things Buffy belong to Joss and Mutant Enemy; all things Doctor Who belong to the BBC.
Summary: Giles is having nightmares. But he needn't fear they might come true, because they already have. Spoilers for the end of S3 Who and all of Buffy.
Author's Notes: Posting under the wire again. Man, for the days of yore, when I could spin a 30k story in less than a month. Anyway, this is for my second [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles day, as well as my self-declared "Summer of Crossover Crack." Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] antennapedia, [livejournal.com profile] fuzzyboo03 and [livejournal.com profile] kivrin for beta reading.

All right, it is technically after midnight where I am, but I got back later from picking my cat up at my parents' house than I expected. And in Hawaii, it is still the 29th. So here you go - one last ficlet. Thanks so much to everyone who prompted, and my apologies to those whose prompts I didn't get to. They were all great and I wanted to do all of them - alas, it just didn't work out.

There are three or four more coming later, but I thought I'd start with these two. None of them are beta'd, but they were fun (and I'm very glad to have something to post today, whew).

Let this serve as a disclaimer that I don't own any of them, Joss does.

Title: Candy Men, 2/2
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sahiya
Pairing/Rating: R, Giles/Wesley
Word Count: 17,600
Disclaimer: Not mine! They belong to Joss and Mutant Enemy. Some bits of dialogue belong to Jane Espenson, who wrote the utterly brilliant "Band Candy."
Summary: Set in the same 'verse as Unprecedented. Buffy hasn't told Giles Angel is back. Giles hasn't told Buffy he and Wes are together. The SATs are on Saturday and Faith is refusing to take them. And then Ethan Rayne's candy gets involved.
Author's Note: This is for my last [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles day, but it's a sequel to "Unprecedented," which I posted in May; I highly recommend you read that one first, because this is an S3 AU and you might end up rather confused. I suppose all you really need to know, though, to make this story make sense, is that in "Faith, Hope, and Trick," Faith showed up with her watcher, Wesley, instead of on her own.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] antennapedia and [livejournal.com profile] fuzzyboo03 for beta reading and to [livejournal.com profile] antonianell for the Britpick.

Title: Till Time Shall Cease, 4/4
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sahiya
Pairing/Rating: PG-13, Gen (Giles-Buffy friendship + Angel)
Word Count: 32,000 total
Disclaimer: Not mine. They belong to Joss, Mutant Enemies, and a bunch of other people. S6 would have gone totally differently if they were mine. As you shall see.
Summary: Post-"Flooded" AU: An angry, exhausted watcher, a glowery, ensouled vampire, and a suicidally depressed slayer find themselves in the flat-share from hell in London. And, oh yes, did I mention that something's haunting Highgate Cemetery?
Author's Note: Betas, betas, oh how I love my betas. A million thanks are owed to [livejournal.com profile] antennapedia, [livejournal.com profile] fuzzyboo03, and [livejournal.com profile] kivrin for hand-holding, brainstorming, picking the nits that had to be picked, helping me see the forest for the trees, and, in the case of Antenna, dragging my ass to Highgate in the first place back in January, without which this story wouldn't exist at all.

Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four

Thanks very much, everyone! See you back here at the end of July for my second (well, third, I guess, technically) [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles day!

Good morning! Or afternoon, really, I suppose. I hope everyone slept well. For the first time in three days I was not woken at 8am by summer work crews pitching furniture out of windows (oh, the joys of campus housing), so I'm pretty happy. Here's Part 3 for your Sunday morning.
