b/g - in the library

The Mod Post we NEVER wanted to have to write.

It's just come to our attention that one of our posters from last summer had plagarized their story from another fandom.  Thier entry has been removed and they have been removed from the comm.

Just so we're perfectly clear, plagiarism in any form is not acceptable at Summer of Giles.

Both elizabuffy and I are really sorry this post had to be written.  Hopefully it'll never have to be written again.

In happier news: New Affiliate

It's our pleasure to have some good news.  For all of you Giles!lovers who also love Dawn, there is a truly interesting comm you should check out:

dawn_all_along

from the comm's profile/premise:

I think darth_cabal put it best when she wrote, "AUs embody all the potential of fanfic. They allow the fan to take canon, tweak it just the flap of a butterfly's wing, and then explore the effects of that change rippling outward. They also embody all the challenge of fanfic. It's difficult enough to keep characters IC within a canon situation; it's all the more impressive to maintain recognizable characterization and universe while diverging from canon."

In this case, the tweak is Buffy the Vampire Slayer's kid sister, Dawn.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to claim one episode from the first four seasons of BtVS, and insert Dawn. You can rewrite the entire episode, or just a key scene (no pun intended!) You can write from Dawn's POV or another character's. Explore the ways Dawn's presence changes events.
