Fic: Frequent Flyer Giles (gen)

Hi all!
Here's your fic for July 15. I'd hoped to have two stories for you -- and I'd hoped that this one would be longer -- but encountered some major writer's block. Thanks again to katekat1010 and elizabuffy for organizing such a vibrant, fantastic community.

Title: Frequent Flyer Giles
Author: Alexa O
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Length: 4,390 words
Spoilers: All of Season 7
Characters: Giles, Dawn, Willow, various Potentials
Summary: Giles travels the world seeking Potentials.
Note: A few lines are stolen directly from canon. I've taken a couple of small liberties, mainly that I found it unrealistic that they believed Giles was the First because no one had even hugged him and he had completely failed to communicate with the Watchers' Council. Thanks to Jessi for the beta. You rock, darling.
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me. This is a work of fanfiction and not for profit.

Summer Giles

Fic: Quia amore langueo (B/G FRT) 1/12

Well, according to my watch, it's just after midnight here, so I'm going to start posting my contribution for the day.  I should warn you - it's long (over 24,000 words) it's probably way too self indulgent, and it has a few icky bits (although not as many as I could have included ...)  There are eleven parts and an epilogue, so I'll post some now, a few when I get home from work and the rest before midnight - I wouldn't normally post something quite this long on a single day, but hopefully folk will enjoy reading it ... :-)

Oh - and it's un-beta-ed, because I've only just finished it and there wasn't time to get someone to look over it.  So please forgive any typos (although please do point them out.)  If the plot doesn't work, I've only myself to blame!

TITLE: Quia amore langueo
AUTHOR: Pythia
FEEDBACK: Will be appreciated
E-MAIL: pythia@tiscali.co.uk 
SUMMARY: She managed to turn up on his doorstep unannounced and unexpected, at a moment when he was ill-prepared and inexcusably vulnerable …
DISTRIBUTION. Summer of Giles and my usual lists – all others please ask!
DISCLAIMER: They belong to Joss and all those other people, not to me. 
SPOILERS and TIMELINE: Future, Post-"Chosen" (no comics canon).
NOTES: This story sprang from a challenge Gileswench gave me, when she was sick and I was busy recovering from the flu. Full details of the challenge can be found at the end of the story.
