Pairing: Giles and Buffy friendship and hurt-comfort, developing into love, developing into full-on smut.
Other Characters: Miscellaneous Vampires, Demons, Innkeepers, Villagers, with Members of the Devon Coven by reference.
Rating: PG for Parts 1-4, R/FRM for Parts 5-6, NC-17/FRAO for Parts 7-9.
Text/Font Conventions: Italics represent unvoiced thoughts, emphasis, ancient text or foreign language, based on context.
Length: Approximately 17,700 words, or 53 Pages in 12 PT Verdanna.
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: Buffy is exploring her relationship with Rupert, trying to decide if she’s going to go through with an ancient ritual recommended to her by the Devon Coven. “Claim” is the third in a series begun for SOG 2012 with “The Chosen One,” and continued in SOG 2013 “Path.” While you don’t have to have read those stories story to enjoy this one, a quick hop over to at least take in the headers and “chronicles” sections from those stories would probably be helpful. See The Chosen One and Path.
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: Avert your eyes in the massive smut sections (primarily 8, but also a bit in 7 and 9) if you need to. Happy ending prevails, as always with me.
