Yes, I know, I've been terribly slack but hey, new month, new start.

This month's theme is TRAPPED.

Any variation welcome, however tenuous, and any length fic. As usual, the only real stipulation is that Giles is in the mix.

This is a response to/continuation of il_mio_capitano's fic "Venus Flytrap" --

TITLE: A Different Kind of Watcher
LENGTH: 650 words

The end of "Venus Flytrap" is --

Digging in his heels, Giles pushed with his shoulders but to no avail, and he became frantically aware that all his efforts were useless and he was about to die.

"Buffy! BUFFY!"

Stop screaming, it"s not helpingCollapse )

I've actually written something!

As an experiment, I've created a giles_shorts collection over on AO3 and posted the ficlet over there.

Click to read Venus Flytrap...

I've thrown open the challenge to anyone who might want to write a conclusion to this. In turn, I'm happy to be challenged to rescue Giles from any other situation.

Sneaking in a ficlet while we're still on the theme of Disappearance and Return. :)

Title: Arrival
Character: Giles
Rating: G
Continuity:BtVS Season 6, “Bargaining, Part 1”.
Summary: A vignette as Giles arrives at Heathrow International Airport.
Length: ~ 490 words.

Disoriented and bleary-eyed, Giles let a single thought, a lone guiding principle—sleep (and perchance, not to dream)—direct his movements, following the throngs of people exiting his flight past one checkpoint to another. He yearned for the comfort and privacy of his own bed, but the cross-Atlantic flight had so drained him for his utter failure at scraping even one decent nap that he thought that any bed would do. Good thing, really, that his brain was half shut-down already to register the scandalous implications of that thought.

Title: Resolved

Character: Giles
Rating: FRC
Word Count: 100
Setting: Pre-series

A/N: This is an epilogue for the fic I wrote and posted on shorts previously called True to One's Nature.

Rupert finished the last of his beer, willing the horrifying images from his mind. It was the stuff of nightmares, his reality. He'd been lost in a terrified haze until the bartender bellowed last call. Pushing away from the bar, he went to find the gents and found a payphone instead, debating with himself until he finally made a decision.

His hands trembled with fear when he heard the groggy, familiar voice come over the line. Taking a deep breath to steady himself, he pushed the coin in and said, "Hello, Dad? Yeah... it's me. I want to come home."

We are moving to moderated posting for a short while. Much as I enjoy Russian spam, I dislike the associated emails I've been getting about it. Oh Lj.
  Image that kicked this off in my head definitely comes from one inspired by another Giles/Olivia fic, of which I cannot now recall the origin. Credit to be added for writer and story if anyone gets any recognition.

I know the comm is all about drabbles and ficlets, but I know the mod is super cool about fic of any sort, and if you know anything about me, then you know that this is a short fic for me, coming in around 1769 words. By otter standards, it could be classified as a ficlet. ;)
