According to Wikipedia (is it ever wrong?), in the Book of Proverbs, King Solomon had some views on sins. He drew the line at:

A proud look
A lying tongue
Hands that shed innocent blood
A heart that devises wicked plots
Feet that are swift to run into mischief
A deceitful witness that uttereth lies
Him that soweth discord among brethren

Any of these take your fancy? It's practically season seven in a nutshell. Possibly the third one is season five. Ficlets ahoy!

Here are some more prompty ideas on the theme of seven deadly sins.

+ Ethan explains the Art of Theft to Ripper. Because throwing a trash can through a window isn't at all subtle.

+ Giles enjoys a lie in. Is he alone? I leave that to you.

+ It was lust at first sight.

+ He didnt think he could be more angry. He was wrong.

We will be taking a break in June and July as the mighty summer_of_giles takes centre stage. Please head over and sign up for a day and share your Giles love. There might well be a free for all drabble day or two as well.

Title:Origninal Sins
Length: 288 words
Prompt: 7 (or 8) Deadly Sins

“Dear God, Xander! How did you manage it?” Giles gasped. “It's so tight, and yet, somehow it fits perfectly. Putting the olive oil just there was a particularly brilliant stroke. What I wouldn't give to be in your position right now!”

Wow. It's May already. This month's general theme is the Seven Deadly Sins.

Ficlets of any size or rating of Giles committing, condoning or polishing his glasses to avoid any or all of

Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride.

Tardiness is worth optional bonus points. ;)

Here are some more ideas for April's sporting Giles ficlets and drabbles theme. This theme runs all month so plenty of time to work on something and post. As before, you can use these prompts or an idea of your own so long as it is Giles and somehow sports related (even if he's only slumped by the TV, trying to figure out what the hell is going on in MLB).

Striking Out
Dancing on Ice
Bowling a Maiden Over
Hospital Pass
