Icons, various episodes in Seasons 1 & 2

About a month and a half ago, I started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For the very first time. The first season was sort of generic teenage problems with an X-Files twist blah blah. Except for one thing--Giles. I stuck with this show because of the snarky, socially challenged, brilliant Watcher. And the show got better on me. Two days ago I finished off the last episode of Angel and remembered I had these icons due (the Buffyverse kind of ate my life for a good chunk of time.) Even after all the gloriousness that had occurred, I still found myself pining for Giles back when he made me fall in love with this wonderful universe. So here be my nostalgic icons.

Apologies if the colors are off--the monitor on my main computer displays things strangely low-contrast so I tend to overcompensate and I didn't get a chance to check these on a normal monitor. Otherwise, enjoy!
