Buffy

Fic: In Midst of the End

Title: In Midst of the End
Author: Quaggy
Rating: G/FRC
Setting: During "End of Days" and "Chosen"
Pairings: Xander/Anya; Willow/Kennedy; mild Spike/Buffy (even milder than on the show); slightly Giles/Buffy because I apparently have trouble coloring within the lines

Notes: This is an in-fill fic, taking place mainly in between scenes. I've included quotes from the show in italics as markers. It originally was meant to be a general piece reconnecting with Buffy with her friends (like they did season 4) and maybe solve a few plot holes while I was at it. But about halfway through the fic, I realized I was mainly reaching for Giles POV because he was the one that was the most marginalized in those last episodes. So I figured that I would give the man the attention he was due. It wasn't meant to be shippy at all, but I don't think I succeeded.

Summary: On the eve of the big battle, Giles tries to find his balance again.
