A/N
Thanks to the mods for making this community such a great place to hang out every year. And apologies to my fellow Giles lovers. I’m way behind in my reading, so if I haven’t commented on something yet, it’s on reading list and I will get there.

Oh, and happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks!

The last couple of years I’ve written fairly sombre ficlets for SoG, so this year I present some pure fluff.

A/N: Last year I wrote One of These Days, which provided a snapshot of Giles and Ethan’s relationship shattering. This year I wanted to go back and explore a little of their relationship right at the beginning before they were tainted by the events that were to come. This is one way things may have started off.

Also, to my fellow [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles contributors, apologies if I haven’t yet commented on your post. I know I’m very behind due to RL stuff. I will get there, honest!

For my first [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles story this year, I gave poor Giles some post-series angst in Being Normal, so it seemed only fitting to bookend it with some pre-series angst, because I just love to make the poor man suffer :)

Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] katekat1010 and [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano for being brilliant mods and to everyone who makes this community such a pleasure to hang out in every year.

It’s [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles' first open day for this year! I hadn’t signed up for a day this year because I didn’t think RL was going to allow me time to write anything, but I managed to sneak something under the wire.

Huge thanks as ever to [livejournal.com profile] katekat1010 and [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano for being awesome mods!

Just a ficlet this year I'm afraid as RL is a little overwhelming. And for the same reason, apologies to any of the other authors whose fics I haven't read/commented on yet - I'm waaaay behind with my reading... Thanks as always to the mods for making [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles such a wonderful place to hang out.

Category: Gen
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: Joss and– Mutant Enemy et al, Shine and the BBC, own everything. I own nothing.
Summary: Xander finds out a bit about Giles’ past and looks to the future

This is a follow up to my earlier fic The Lightening Spark, in which Xander takes on an assignment at Giles’ request and encounters Merlin in an Edinburgh garden. (don’t you hate it when that happens...) You don’t have to have read The Lightening Spark to read this story (although I’d be delighted if you felt moved to do so), you just need to know that Merlin makes a passing comment that he once did Giles a favour. The following morning Xander decides he has to find out more...
