I wanted to let everyone know that a great voice in the Buffy writing community has passed away. Karen Jephson lost her battle with cancer at Christmas and she will be missed greatly. IF you don't know her works, some of them can be found here:

Hi everyone

More details can be found here...

Hello Giles lovers. Missing summer_of_giles? Well, this is to let you know there is a new comm to encourage year round Watcher appreciation in tasty bite sized pieces.

giles_shorts is for ficlets and drabbles. We have a weekly drabble prompt and a monthly one for longer works. Please come and check it out.

Our theme for October is Halloween ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night. Would love to see you there.

Author: horrorfangirl
Fandoms: BTVS and Elementary
Disclaimers: The characters ued belong to their respective companies. No profit is being made.
Characters: Rupert Giles, Buffy Summers, Sherlock Holmes and others.
Rated: PG
Author Notre: This is the continuation of my Summer of Giles fic, Welcome  to a New World. It's still a WIP so please bare with me. Thank you!

3: Patrol.Collapse )

Please Note the change in Rating from FRT to FRAO.
My naughty muse won the argument  on the direction of the fic.

Getting to Know YouCollapse )

This is a continuation of my submitted work for SOG 2013.

As the title states, mistakes can be a life changing event. What starts as friendship can become something more.

A/N I wasn't sure of the direction this story was going to go but as you can see I have changed it to a Giles/Buffy story. The rating remains at FR-T unless my naughty muse steps in.

Living ArangementsCollapse )
Sadly, summer is always over so FAST! Every year I fantasize about extending posting just *one more week* and every year I remind myself... just because it's over for the moment doesn't mean we all disappear! Besides, this is the time when we all get to take a moment to breathe - no deadlines hanging over our shoulders, to look at all the wonderful stuff WE ALL contributed without worry that we're somewhere running out of time.

Thank you, all, for proving that we can come together and make something amazing for two whole months out of the year. Thank you for being each other's cheerleaders, for providing inspiration and for giving out hugs when the job is done, for every moment of blood, sweat, and tears that shows in all the beautiful things you write and graphic and vid and meta and post to share for our com! Thank you for pumping blood into our dreams of Giles for another year with talent, grace, and awesomeness!

I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating, that this is proof that the people who love this show, and who adore our watcher, are some very fine people indeed. (and yes, this means YOU).

Thank you! Seriously, THANK YOU!

For this, for all your awesomeness, i have below the cut some presents. They are meant for YOU as a thank you. And as a reminder not only of how awesome you are but of how much I appreciate you all being willing to make this summer together.

if you left a single note of *feedback*, posted one word of fic, made an icon, a vid, a line of meta, etc, these are for youCollapse )

Now, I've had a couple of questions about what to do in the meantime until it's time to get ready for next year.

- if you have works you didn't finish during SOG, you can post them here during the year! (Yes, we do switch to moderated posting starting today, but we will allow your fic to be posted. It just had to debut at SOG)
- to keep track of Giles postings not on your flist: giles_watchers
- for Buffy/Giles related stuff during the year: allthejellies
- for Giles/Xander related stuff during the year: gilesxander
- for Giles slash: giles_slash

ok, that was a short list off the top of my head - maybe in the comments to this post people could put up their favorite btvs related / giles related communities?

and again, THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stages of Understanding.
See prologue for disclaimer and authors notes.
Rating: R for now but may go to NC-17 later
Summary: After Buffy's death, Rupert Giles ran from Sunnydale as he could. When he learns of his slayer's resurrection he comes back with a blind sense of hope and completely unsure of what he will find. Upon seeing The broken shell of the women he loves, Giles vows to help her find her way back to the person she used to be. Stages of Understanding is about love, life, death, forgiveness and moving forward.
A/N: okay, I have more chapters written but they are in the beta faze. I will update to my fanfiction account (just look for the title) and on my LJ.

Chapter One:

Stages of Understanding
Disclaimer: No, I don't own BTVS, wish I did though. All rights belong to Joss and anyone who has their finger in the awesome pie that is Buffy.
Rating: R for safety but I have plans for NC-17 later.
Spoilers: All though season five. This takes place loosely during season six. Kind of AU.
Summary: After Buffy's death, Rupert Giles ran far from Sunnydale as he could. When he learns of his slayer's resurrection he comes back with a blind sense of hope and completely unsure of what he will find. Upon seeing the broken shell of the women he loves, Giles vows to help her find her way back to the person she used to be. Stages of Understanding is about love, life, death, forgiveness and moving forward.
A/N: Okay, as stated this is a season six fanfic. However, Warren died when his robot girlfriend entered the picture....I imagine he died during sex with her for my personal kicks and giggles....along with a few other people's enjoyment.....So that means no robot Buffy either. Jonathan died is season three in the episode "Earshot". As for Andrew...who knows. Playing D&D in his parents basement for all we know. Spike is not a major character in this. So, no Spuffy. I really hate Spuffy.

I would also like to thank Cheveron17 and Foreverbooks for helping with this story.


Thanks to everyone for another great SoG. This is for a series I’ve been adding to every year. If you haven’t read the first two, I’m afraid you will be as lost and confused as Buffy is with this one.

Title: Lover’s Inquisition (3rd in The Lover’s Series)
Author: Gilescandy
Rating: FRM (for language and talk of past sexual trauma)
Characters: Buffy, Giles, Willow, Spike
Timeline: Begins the morning after chapter 5 of Lover’s Noose (A New Man).

Summary: Third in the series after Lover’s Knot and Lover’s Noose. Buffy is determined to find out exactly what happened between her friends at the hands of Spike. But will she be able to handle the truth she’s hunting?

A/N: Thanks to ashlynvance, my beta. This is written for il_mio_capitano. At the end of Lover’s Noose she expressed a desire to see more of Buffy dealing with and coming to terms with the newfound closeness of her friends. So this is that story. I hope it does not disappoint.

Happy Open Posting Day everybody!!

I had hoped to get the rest of the movie posters finished by this day, but such was sadly not the case. Instead I have some graphics for you that will be part of a series of pairings (hopefully, if I can get more done) that I hope to post later today. Here's the start at least!

And here's a teaser:
