Sorry I am late with the round up post. I was away this past weekend and was unable to hop online. As such, I am going to do one that includes everything posted in the last week up until today.

This past week (and a few days) we were treated to a variety of fanfic, fanvids, and fanart!

In fiction, Giles and Xander bonded while going to the mall to get new running shoes for Giles and see a movie, we were treated to a set of haikus exploring Giles’ inner musings during certain episodes, a doctor from the hospital had some insights regarding Giles and his relationships with his friends and his role in Sunnydale, Giles and Willow grapple with their mutual attraction during the events at Lowell House in an AU of Season 4’s Where the Wild Things Are, and we got a glimpse of what happened on Giles’ first day at Sunnydale High.

Two fanvids were submitted this past week, the first is an AU where Giles falls in love with a young student and then leaves Sunnydale for a teaching position at the Watchers Academy to avoid temptation, and the second was a general fanvid exploring Giles and the Scoobies’ adventures in Sunnydale.

In art, we had a wallpaper showing the many faces of Rupert Giles, another wallpaper depicting Giles during Season 4’s Restless, and finally a sketch of season 1 Giles and Buffy.

I haven't played with haikus for many years, so I thought I'd drum up a few for my second day. So much inspiration to be found in SOG content!

Knife, chainsaw, coatroom
Seriously. All are dead
Read: actual size

Rock on wild Ripper
I’m listening dear Watcher
Where are his glasses?

Bunnies, bunnies, fear
Thousand year old Fear Demon
You kiss very well

Watcher, Protector.
Should I leave her behind now?
Really need this Scotch

Glasses off, sexy
Glasses on, axe in hand. Hot
I like mushy peas

This vid was just plain fun to make.  I hope you guys have fun watching it!

(For those of you waiting for updats to stories and series, I'm so sorry I couldn't write.  It's been a year of lows and highs for me.  But I promise nothing has been forgotten!  They will all be continued in the future.  For now, I have to get off of this borrowed internet and go back to moving.)

This year has been so hetic that I haven't been able to write for you guy, but I do have two videos to share.

The first is for a song that Kaitlyn Sells begged me for over a year ago.  It might have turned out a little darker than she expected, but I hope everyone enjoys it.

In the Depth of the Night
While at Sunnydale High School, Rupert Giles makes the mistake of falling in love with a young student. Knowing he would eventually fall to temptation, he decides to take another job teaching at the Watchers Academy in London. But just because the girl is out of his reach doesn't mean she doesn't still haunt him.

Title: The Chronicles of Ripper: Guilt Part II
Author: will_conqueror1
Rating: FRT, though there are some rather crude innuendos, if you think I should up the rating I will.
Pairing: Giles/Ethan implied. There’s really nothing more than innuendo, even in the flashback scenes.
Summary: The second installment in The Chronicles of Ripper. Takes place in 1980, three years after Randall’s death. Giles can’t sleep and he goes to an old friend for help.
Note: It’s not necessary to read the first story in the series, but you can if you want. It can be found hereand the first part of this story can be found here

Title: Legacies
Author: littleotter73
Characters: Buffy/Giles
Rating: FRM
Setting: Two years post Chosen, no comics.
Word Count: 23,150
Summary: After helping to rebuild the Council, Buffy and Giles team up to search out artifacts and investigate supernatural issues on its behalf. This assignment takes them to Germany along the Mosel River to meet up with a man who has a couple of medieval manuscripts in his possession belonging to the Council and to the Giles family. What sort of wisdom can a long dead ancestor impart after 750 years? And what were his books doing in the possession of someone not affiliated with the Council?
Beta: foreverbooks, to whom I am totally indebted for stepping in to help when other arrangements fell through. This story is a behemoth and she took it all in stride.
Disclaimer: Just for fun, not profit
A/N 1: Special thanks to my friend emerys for help with some of the French background - it goes deeper than what is in the actual story, but it was fun to create that world, and to my friend Regan for the Latin translation.
A/N 2: This story was not supposed to be this long, but it evolved and needed to be told in its current form. I didn’t write it in chapter form, so there are no real natural breaks for me to parcel it out on LJ which is why I am posting on AO3 and linking to Summer of Giles.
A/N 3: Dedicated to il_mio_capitano, thank you for being you.

Whoa! Looks like the authors had all the fun this week at Summer of Giles! The week started out with a series of haikus reflecting Giles’ experiences through the seven seasons, then we were treated to another episode in a longer running series that puts Giles in the role of the big bad during season one! Next Giles tries to convince Buffy that nothing is wrong while trying to placate Willow with regards to a new prophecy in the next chapter of Unholy Savior. The fourth entry tugged at our heartstrings in a tender story that has Buffy tending to Giles in the final stages of illness. No less heartbreaking was the next story, which finds Giles mourning the death of his Slayer in an AU that had her killed during the events of Becoming Pt 1 & 2. The last offering this week gave us a little something, something between Watcher and Slayer as he offers her an escape from the monotony of her Council dominated life in a post series setting.

Please remember to tip your servers! Comments and love are rather scarce this week. We definitely want our authors to feel appreciated so they will come back to entertain us again in the future!

Warning: Mildly kinky D/s. And sex. Quite a bit of that, actually.
AO3 Mirror: Here

Summary: Buffy's imploding. Giles thinks he has just the solution to her little problem.


Mildly kinky sex in an enchanted garden.

Yeah, that about sums this up. Very high brow literature <*/sarcasm>

A/N: No angst. Much sex. Little plot. So shameless. Could probably do with a bit of a beta *mumble mumble* DHW is a lazy sod who almost didn’t finish in time *mumble mumble* but never mind. Hopefully it’s not too painful or wildly OOC!

Disclaimer: Not mine. They belong to the almighty Joss. I’m just playing in his sandpit. Sad, sad times.
