This month we invite works taking their inspiration from David Bowie song titles or lyrics. For example:

Young (undead) Americans
Ethan, I'm Only Dancing
Ziggy Stardust and the Snot Monsters from Mars....

I sense some strong possibilities are out there. Any length, any ship or not, any rating, just the usual stipulation that Giles is in the mix somewhere. Bonus points for use of the phrase 'serious moonlight'.

As ever, Giles must be in the mix, but otherwise, anything goes.

First Kickstarter line of the month is:

Giles looked at his fellow watcher ruefully, this was going to be the hardest conversation of his life...
