Hello again. It's Friday and time for a new Gilesy prompt. This week let's think about:

The First Time

The first what? Kill? Kiss? Meeting someone? Watching Monty Python? It's up to you. Short fic or drabble, as ever there are no rules other than Giles has to feature.

Title: Extraneous Tomes
Prompt: War
Rating: G
Note: Two prompts with one stone. Taming the Muse's prompt of spatchcock and Giles' Short's prompt of war
Word Count: 638
Note: Companion piece to Beer Good Foamy's The Brian Situation.

Giles' few remaining tomes, those that thankfully hadn't been in the Magic Box when Willow had fed off of them, were scattered across the dining room table, treated no better than an assortment of paperback novels.Collapse )


Mr. Giles ordered in again. Sweet and Sour Something or other. He couldn't quite seem to give a damn far enough in advance to shop and cook these days. Anyhow it saved the washing up. He was meant to be researching something. Sod all that mattered. Rearranging deckchairs. Vitally important dust catchers for the Archives. Charitable employment for a useless old veteran. Out to pasture.

Title: That Bothers You?

Author: T. Dunn

Pairing: Giles, Jenny

Drabble Challenge: Pet Peeve

Summary: None


The rhythmic sound sent a chill down Giles’ spine.


He tried to focus on his research.


He shifted uneasily then glanced in Jenny’s direction. Didn’t she understand what she was doing?

He couldn’t take it anymore and he snapped, “Jenny! Stop that!”

“What?” she asked honestly.

“Mindlessly curling the edges of the pages in that book then letting them fall back into place one by one.”

“Oh, that bothers you, England?”

         “It isn’t one of your books.”

“I know just, please don’t.”

Jenny tucked the book back into her purse. She rose from the couch then wandered over to his bookcase; while Giles went back to his work.

“I haven’t read this one. May I borrow it?”

Giles didn’t look up from his book, “Yes, by all means.

Jenny removed the volume from the shelf. As she placed it into her pocketbook she began to hatch a plan to tease her fuddy-duddy of a boyfriend. She had definite plans to use this First Edition Forster to make the man squirm.

I'm feeling prompty again, and it is Friday.

This week's prompt is WAR

Huh? What is it good for? Well hopefully at least 100 if not 500 words of Giles focussed goodness.

WARNING: It is entirely possible that some readers might find some language or concepts in the work offensive, though it does not contain any words you can't say on televison.  There, you've been warned.

 “'Native American,' she says, scolding me like a nursery-school teacher!

A Bit Too AmericanCollapse )

For the prompt "pet peeves" -- a Season Six drabble.

TITLE: Annoying
LENGTH: 100 words
PAIRING: Giles/Anya
SUMMARY: Season Six, maybe a step off canon. In the Magic Box. She asked him why he was annoyed. He had a lot of reasons.

'...letting Xander and Dawn speak Latin in front of the books'Collapse )

Hello again. My life is full of railway trains and hotels these days so apologies once again for not playing.

This week's prompt for either ficlets or drabbles is

Pet Peeves

What sort of thing pisses Giles off? What minor aggravations fill his day? Will he go postal someday or remain stiff upper lippy? And Who ate all the Wheetabix?
