Pairing: Giles and Buffy friendship and hurt/comfort.
Other Characters: Miscellaneous Vampires and Demons, Members of the Devon Coven.
Rating: PG for TV series-level vampire/demon-type violence and injury.
Text/Font Conventions: Italics represent unvoiced thoughts, emphasis, ancient text or foreign language, based on context.
Length: Approximately 11,000 Words, or 33 pages in 12PT Veranda, total across all 4 parts.
Timeframe: Total AU, Loosely based on concepts/atmospherics from the Wish!Verse, including Tough!Cookie!Buffy. The Watcher's Council is sort of a monastic society, and the atmosphere is a bit post-apocalyptic medieval-ish, with very limited technology and an agrarian lifestyle.
Summary: Rupert puts his life on the line for Buffy, and their relationship is about to change. “Path” is the second in a series begun for SOG 2012 with “The Chosen One.” While you don’t have to have read that story to understand this one, a quick hop over to at least take in the headers and “chronicles” section from that story would probably be helpful. See here.
Disclaimer: Buffyverse and characters property of Joss Whedon, et al. This is a not-for-profit amateur work done with respect and intent of preserving and extending interest in the wonderful world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Warnings: A Watcher was harmed in the writing of this fic. But he gets better. Happy ending prevails, as always with me.
