Many, many thanks to everyone who contributed these last two months. Whether it be fic, art, vid or equally importantly dropping a few kind words in feedback. You guys are what keep this comm alive!

My thanks also to my my co-mod littleotter73 who, for the second year running, has had to pick up the reins as I dealt with family issues. You rock, my friend!

This comm is now closed for the year but if you are itching to take part in more Gilesy challenges, then our little sibling site Giles-Shorts has re-opened for prompts, games and chat. Come check it out. In the meantime, thanks again for making the summer sizzle!

Weekly Round Up

It’s been another banner week here at Summer of Giles! On the visual arts front, we have a lovely portrait of Giles and video highlighting Giles and Dawn’s relationship. In fic, we’ve been taken along Giles’ extremely dark and self destructive path during his time running around London, and we’ve also experienced a mundane day in the life of a Watcher posted on the Hellmouth. We also had an update to the post-Chosen “Ripper” story, experienced hijinx when Giles and Willow’s iPhones decided to get married, and were treated to the conclusion of Part IV of the Sanctuary Series titled Labyrinth.

Please remember to leave love and comments for our content creators. Feedback has been very sparse this year and everyone has worked so hard to make Summer of Giles a fun and wonderful experience this summer. So please, read, view, and show your appreciation.

And lastly, authors and artists, please remember to tag your entries.

Weekly Round Up #4

This week in art, we have Giles featuring in three very creative wallpapers. In fic, we saw how clothes played a role in various stages of Giles’ life. In another story, an old ally comes to visit Giles in England and aid him in a new fight against evil. Then later, he and Anya take an insightful trip to LA. In the second installment of Sign of the Times, a teenage Giles experiences love and loss in his travels. And finally, Giles and Buffy discuss the education needs of the new Slayers.

Weekly Round Up #3 over at Dreamwidth

It's been another fun and fabulous week here at Summer of Giles that started off with a bunch of haikus about our favourite Watcher. This week Giles considered Buffy's request after the events of Tabula Rasa in Alternate Plans, was the subject of observation from an outsider in People Watching, and provided comfort and aid to a de-aged Buffy in a fic inspired by the comic!verse in Kids Today. We were also treated to another installment of the Chronicles of Ripper series in The Chronicles of Ripper: The Book of Thoth. Then we had another story about teenage Giles in the comic!verse dealing with the effects of puberty in the first chapter of Sign of the Times. Lastly, Giles and Buffy learn the value of Father's Day in Parenthood.

Weekly review over at dreamwidth

It’s been a fabulous first week over in our new home, please, please, please review and drop a little feedback on the following:


This week Giles has gone back to the seventies in a race against time in Second Sight. Vamp!Giles has renewed the fight against the First Evil in the epic Magister 3. There’s been angst aplenty in the beautiful Epilogues. Giles has dwelled on his shortcomings in the poignant Failure whilst Dénouement brings closure and closeness to our favourite Watcher and Slayer.
