week 4 in Summer of Giles

It's been another strong week in Gilesville.

This week in fic:
Having missed the ‘date part’ of their evening, Giles tries to make amends with Buffy...
Giles learns to grieve... Buffy has an eighteen year-old Giles on her hands - he wishes... Ripper and the gang fall in line... Giles makes his way to Paris and finds considerate company... Giles and Buffy tackle both their feelings and a pack of demons in Scotland... Ethan pops up to distract Giles... Giles enjoys the prom more than he thought he would... Giles has a welcome visitor with gifts, and an unwelcome one with poor timing.

We also had lovely banners, fun original fan art portraits and a moving tribute vid to Giles and the scoobies.

Click, read, watch, drool and comment.

Weekly feedback list

Week two and lots of awesomeness!

We've had two sets of lovely manips: dashing Giles and Giles/Faith. Check them out!

Fic wise: He’s had a lot on his plate with Anyanka, he’s reflected on his wild past with Ethan, we’ve seen him through Willow’s eyes during a long night in the library, he’s taken Buffy to Scotland to help her with her need to hunt, he's had help from Quentin during another difficult night, he developed a serious bond with Faith, and he had one last tryst with Ethan - which might also have been a long night ;) .

Comments, however short, make a creator’s day. Please say hi if you’ve clicked on someone’s work and enjoyed it.

First week roundup for 2019

It's been a fab first week! We've had two lovely sets of manips, go show some love. Ficwise the past has played a part in all four works with Giles either avoiding it, dealing with it, confronting it, or downright embracing it. Go read and see which is which ;)

Roundup from Dreamwidth

Week Whatever-it-was-plus-a-bit

This *cough* week *cough* has been about the connections. Giles has tantalisingly met Ethan several first times. He’s dealt with the difficult connection with his mother. He’s reassessed his connection to Cordelia. After the battle has been won, he’s looked to improve his connection to Buffy and the scoobies. Buffy and he have made an early connection in their Watcher/Slayer relationship. Finally, he and Cordelia are introduced again.

As ever, PLEASE drop a line of encouragement to the authors and artists. It makes all the difference.

weekly feedback from dreamwidth

We've had a strong start to this year's festival of all things Rupert Giles. Be sure to check out the artist's work and feedback.

Ficwise: Giles has kicked some sand, got the er… measure of Spike, had a pretty introduction to Ethan, entered the computer age and promptly had nightmares about it.
