Dearest Giles!lovers,

Normally we don't pimp to the community again, because you're all here for the same reason (Giles!love, of course). But we have a ton of open days on our calendar and we'd really like to fill them. And we're hoping those of you who maybe were more hesitant will think about jumping in. Bring your Giles poems, your Giles songs, your Giles screencaps, your Giles essays... WE NEED YOU! and maybe your friends - see if they'll sign up too?


{check the calendar} / {sign up here}


If you have questions about what content is ok, please just ask - because it doesn't have to be a multi chapter fic if you don't want it to be! (not that those are bad, but not everyone can do them - trust me, i can't)
 
 
 
Check this list for open days!! This year we're hoping to have ONE person per day, and you can sign up for *three* days if you would like (but also you do not have to)! When you've decided which days you want to choose then go HERE TO SIGN UP.

We would like to welcome you to the 2015 summer_of_giles! We're ready again to celebrate two months of Giles-y goodness and we hope you are too.

My Dear Giles!lovers,

There will be one last links roundup coming out as soon as I can code it, but after that we'll officially be closed for the summer. BUT, just because it's over for the moment doesn't mean we all disappear! In fact, maybe now is the time to take a couple of minutes and look at all the wonderful stuff WE ALL contributed this summer - the hidden gems and outright masterpieces, every word and image is wonderful.

Which is because of YOU guys. Thank YOU -- ALL of you -- for once again coming together, putting yourself and your artwork and your hearts out here, for your cheerleading and your commenting, for your smiles and your blood, sweat, and tears in all forms.

Your love and awesomeness 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, and I will totally say it every year, but once again 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. Please take one and enjoy it - it's not much, but it is meant to show you how much you are appreciated!

some pretty little banners just for youCollapse )

As some of you might know, we are trying to get a new fan awards up and running. These will be the Headline Awards and will hopefully be a good way to call attention to and give props to all of the wonderful creative works inspired by our lovely and adorable Anthony Head.

We want to focus on, not only Giles, but all of the wonderful characters Tony has brought to life for us. The biggest categories will likely be Giles, Uther, and his other main characters, be we’ll also spotlight any of the minor roles he’s played that still inspire us. And we’ll not only have awards for fanfics, but vids and artwork, too.

So, what do I need from you? HELP! I’m begging you for help!

I need help with:

Moderating the awards sites and archives. (We will probably have our biggest presence on LJ and Tumbler.)

Judging. (The more judges we have, the more categories we can award. All judges will be anonymous. You will also be consulted to help set up the rules and categories. You read fanfic, you write fanfic, you know the characters… You are qualified!)

We are hoping to run the awards in January and February, with the winners being announced on Feb. 20th in honor of Tony’s birthday. If you are interested in helping to make this a reality, please contact either me or dracofidus. Leave a message here (they are screened for judge anonymity) or send us a PM. Giles and Tony need your love.J

If you have questions, ask. I will unscreen and answer them here.

Thank you all for another great SoG!

“Oh! I think I got it this time!” Willow declared, “I think it's working!” The tiny pink dot on her screen glowed brightly over the city of Los Angeles, just as all available information suggested that it should. Without meaning too, several of the people holding hands in a circle around her hushed in anticipation, holding their breath. The dot flickered. “Keep chanting!” she instructed fiercely, as she clicked to enlarge the map and waited impatiently for the enlarged image to load.

I'm sorry I missed my second posting day. Hopefully these will make up for it. As you can see I have a AU trend going this year. Feel free to use and abuse as you wish. I own nothing. Hopefully they will inspire some great fic.

















Apologies to Mads Mikkelsen fans who will no doubt recognize the base image I used in the last one. It has to be from one of my favorite photoshoots ever.

Steeling herself, Gale grasped the knob of the library door firmly, ready to slid her key in. It turned in her hand, not locked after all. The Slayer, slouching boredly at her side, perked up just a little, hoping for trouble.
