In which Giles gets with the times, which march on as times do. He may be mellowing in his dotage. Or not. Probably not.

Thanks, Kate, for allowing me to post at the end. I hope this is as fun to read as it was to write.

Hello. It's my second posting day today, and here's my offering. Thanks to the mods and all the wonderful contributors for keeping the Giles love going.

Setting: BtVS season 7, five days after the end of Chosen
Pairing: Giles/Olivia
Rating: PG
Beta: Many thanks to rebcake for read-through and suggestions. All mistakes are of course mine.
Disclaimer: Not for profit, please don't sue, etc.
Giles is a bit rude about California at one point in this story. Sorry about that. I loved California when I was there. On the other hand, I didn't spend all my time fighting vampires, demons and the forces of darkness.

AND....we are entering into the final week of this mighty festival of Giles celebration, but not before reviewing this week's awesome entries. As ever, please drop a few kind words and make someone's day.

It's been fic city this week. We've learned that 'because it's there' is sometimes a poor judgement call. We've watched investigations into Giles as the big bad of season one continue. We've seen the results of Ethan's portal magic bringing a man named Reg to Buffy's life. We've been totally bemused as Giles and Willow's phones are ready to take a big commitment step. We've smiled and enjoyed a simple christmas night with friends. And had The Feels as the Watcher marks time without his Slayer.

Still working on 'One Mistake...' but the next chapter just isn't flowing like I want it too.
This is something I found on my computer with the note - Ready to Post - I didn't find it posted anywhere so I believe it is new.

My contribution today is this drabble:

Title: Crisis
Author: punch_kicker15
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Relationships: Willow/Giles (established relationship)
Summary: Stopping two apocalypses was the easy part of the day for Giles and Willow.
Word count: 601
Notes: Drabble set in the universe of my story The Love Song of Anthropomorphic Nonsense and Frog Fears. What you need to know from that one: Willow and Giles are in a relationship, and they have sentient iPhones named Anthropomorphic Nonsense and Frog Fears. Hat tip to velvetwhip for making a suggestion in a comment to the earlier story that I adopted here.

Title: blindr dot com, or, The Importance of Coconut-Milk Lattes to Long-Term Success
Pairing: Giles/Buffy
Rating: Teen
Summary: Giles owns a third-wave coffee shop and bean roastery. His loyal staff thinks he should start dating again. He thinks it would be a disaster. He’s right.
Word count: 6400
Contains: Oz, Tara, Anya, Xander, and Willow in supporting roles. Cameo appearance by Robin Sachs as Ethan. Coffee. Coconut milk. Mockery of the paleo diet. An extended milk-steaming sequence. More coffee. Two very bad blind dates and one that works out differently.

“Coconut milk?”

Rupert Giles turned the box over in his hands, for this coconut milk came in a box, not in a can. The sort he used when cooking came in cans, and was often so thick as to make the idea of using it in a latte ludicrous. This sounded quite liquid when he shook it, and the box was similar to the ones the soya milk came in. But coconut milk? He set the box down on the bar-top and repeated his question to Anya.

Betas: Gilescandy & porkwithbones

Word Count:  1630 (this chapter)

“*Now* can I call an ambulance?” Willow pleaded, not for the first time. Nor the tenth. “No!” Giles ground out between clinched teeth. “I"m fine!” he lied transparently. “We need to keep—nuhg—working.”Collapse )
