Welcome to [community profile] summer_of_giles

A two month extravaganza of Giles-y goodness. From June through July this site will be devoted to Rupert Giles, our favorite Watcher, librarian, sometime magician, smart, occasinally sarcastic, warm-eyed, sexy and protective man from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


what is [community profile] summer_of_giles?

We are one of the oldest running 'seasonal' character (or pairing) sites in the Btvs/Ats community. [community profile] summer_of_giles is a multi-media event celebrating every aspect of Rupert Giles. The idea is that each day one (or two) different talented writers and/or artists will post Giles-specific offering(s) for the community's viewing/reading pleasure. Gen artwork and graphics are wonderful! And every pairing is welcomed, as long as it's about Giles! (And hey, we also welcome threesomes, foursomes and moresomes if you're so inclined!) See below for dates, sign up information, etc.

(note: this is NOT a ficathon...this is not the place for fic requests or fic challenges. Instead, do whatever kind of story/graphic/fanmix/podfic etc. you want to show your Giles love)



Sign Ups May 1st through to end July 2018

summer of giles rules

1) You must post on the day you are given. No swapping, switching, or late posting (except for time zone differences.) If you cannot post on the day given, please email your mods as soon as possible (at least give us 24 hours notice though, ok?) to make other arrangements so that an alternate day can be given or so that backups can be deployed. Entries posted on the wrong date may be deleted by the mods.

2) Your contribution MUST be original and NEW. This community is not meant to be links to fanfic sites, awards sites, or anything else previously posted elsewhere, but instead is intended for new works you create. The only exception to this rule is if you are posting a new chapter - or finishing - a work in progress. If you choose to add a significant amount of new material to a work, we are pleased to have you post the entire work. Your mods reserve the right to picspam when necessary. Any questions? Don’t hesitate to ask.

3) This community is about loving Giles, in all of his variations. Absolutely NO bashing of ships, storylines, characters, or fans. We are about the Giles love. Members who break this rule or its spirit will be banned.

4) Clearly label your post in the subject line, defining what type of multi-media creation you are contributing (see below for more info) Please use the cut-tag, especially for fics and pictures. Also, please label any and all NC-17 material and if a graphic is not safe for work.

5) No off topic posting. Please only post on the day assigned to you. Anything else you have to say should be said in the comments. All off topic posts will be deleted. Repeated off topic posting will result in being banned. If you're not sure what off topic means, please email the mod.

6) Comment, comment, comment! Everyone involved is creating something to share the Giles love. Let people know when you enjoy what they’ve posted. Chances are, if you feedback someone, they’ll feedback you in return.

7) If you need to contact a mod, please email summerofgiles @ gmail dot com. That way both mods are notified and one of us can respond.

8) Please be aware that all posts will also be pimped on the tumblr account summerofgiles by the moderators.

9) We have an AO3 collection called summer_of_giles. This is available to everyone to use and is not restricted.


how to post

1) Label your post in the subject line as follows:
Type: Title (Pairing) Rating
(for example... FIC: Death Becomes Her (G/S) NC-17)

2) For ALL graphics that are larger than Icon size (and for all icon posts with more than three icons), please use a cut.

3) Please tag your post.
We already have a number of tags set up, so it should be easy to pick and choose. If not please email summerofgiles @ gmail dot com and we'll make new ones for you.

4) We will accept content posted on tumblr or any other site such as AO3 or LJ etc, but this must be original and made available on the correct signed up day. Posters using tumblr will need to tag their posts for the attention of the mods to reblog under summerofgiles. Other posters should email the mods ( at summerofgiles @ gmail dot com), to let them know of the new content. One of the moderators will then create a post on the DW comm to link it.
