Fanvid: Buffy and Giles; Anticipation

 Hey all! As usual, the amazing Fairygothmum and I are sharing a day. (I swear, I am so lucky to get to work with her!)  :)

Here we are in yet another Summer of Giles. I really look forward to this every year. I like to see what you all post and I rather like to challenge myself to actually get something done.

This year, my entries seem to be heavy on the videos. I'd almost forgotten how much fun they are to make.

My first entry for the day is a short video, but I loved the song. So, here I give you, Buffy and Giles; Anticipation. (The song is Anticipation by Until Eleven.)

Fanvid: Giles; Someone Special

 My second entry is also a video. This one came to me in an odd way. I'd honestly not heard this song before, but a friend of mine, who is a huge Macgyver fan, found a video where someone had put a bunch of random Macgyver clips to this song. I wasn't completely impressed by the video, but the song caught my attention and I had to make a Rupert video to it. I didn't really want to skew it towards any pairing, so in this one, Rupert gets all the girls. :)

Fanvid: Rupert Giles; Some Guys Have All the Luck

 My last video today is on a somewhat more depressing vein. I was running some errands the other day and one of our radio stations had an 80's tribute. This song came on and I immediately thought of Rupert. It made me "Awww" and want to love him all better, but it also made me really think about how hard it must have been for him. The kids had each other and there was always a lot of snuggling and kissing going on around him, but he was by and large alone most of the time. And the women he did get either wanted something from him or couldn't deal with the real Rupert. (Or, in Joyce's case, only wanted him when she wasn't in her right mind.) He gave up everything and lived this empty life, all for the good of everyone else. Wow, I *really* want to snuggle that man!

Anyway, here is Rupert Giles - Some Guys have All the Luck. (Song: Some guys have all the luck by Rod Stewart.)

Fic: Deep in My Heart (Rupert/Faith - NC-17 or FRAO)

 My last entry for today is actual writing. This is actually something I pulled from a bigger work and then completely rewrote. (That work is a Faith only story, with Rupert as strictly background. The only similarity is that Faith and Rupert and arguing in a hotel room.)

Anyway, I liked the setup of the two of them together, while they were out on their own in season 8. I found myself wondering if having a dedicated Watcher all to herself would mature her at all. I adore Buffy/Giles, but I really do think that Faith would be a good match for him and understand him in a way Buffy can't. 

With that in mind, I wrote this:


Title: Deep in My Heart
Author’s Name: Laura Sichrovsky (E-Mail: Laurtew@Yahoo.com)
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: NC-17 or FRAO
Season: This is set in season eight from the comic books
Pairing: Rupert/Faith
Warnings: Detailed Shaggage Scene

Summary: When Rupert gets injured on patrol, Faith has to face why she’s so upset about it.
