Night Terrors

Hi. It's my posting day today and I bring fic. At the end of 2008, I wrote a Spike/Giles story for the Welcome to the Nancy Tribe ficathon run by ruuger. It was an AU version of BtVS season 7 where, instead of returning to Sunnydale after getting his soul, Spike sought out Giles in England instead. In 2009, I wrote a couple of sequels to the story. Then RL intervened and I wrote nothing for a very long time. Then I had writers' block. That's gone finally :crosses fingers:, and I'm posting the next story in the series to this comm.

Unfortunately, it leads on directly from the events of the previous stories, so it might be a good idea to read those first. They can be found here. Hope you enjoy this one.

Setting: An apartment belonging to Giles's Watcher colleague Robson, London, UK, during BtVS season 7, around the time of Beneath You/Same Time, Same Place.
Pairing: Spike/Giles
Rating: R but only for a spot of violence and some bad/non-PC language from Spike
Beta: dwyld read it through for me.
Banner: sueworld2003. NWS for partial nudity. Nothing graphic.
Author's note: if it seems like I go on a bit about the appearance of Robson's flat, it's because I've never seen anywhere in the UK that looks anything like it. Also, if you decide that Giles is acting stupidly in this story, he does have a very good reason, for which see the previous story in the sequence.
