Welcome back to everyone who follows us. The Mighty summer_of_giles has completed for another year but bite sized Giles writing resumes over here, refreshed from all the brilliant work everyone has done over the past two months.

This month's theme is Disappearance and Return

I don't do terribly strict rules over here, it's all about being creative and sharing. So any fic of pretty much any length is welcome on the theme. Giles doesn't have to be the hero, but he does need to feature. You can post direct or post a link to Ljs or AO3, I don't mind so long as I can read and enjoy. I will pop out some weekly suggestions on the theme to help kick start ideas, and everyone is more than welcome to do the same. Let's have some fun.

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
Author: littleotter73
Character: Giles
Rating: FRC
Word Count: 100
Setting: Pre-series
Disclaimer: For fun, not profit.
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.

Her mind was rambling, she knew...Collapse )

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. ;)

Hi everyone, I've really missed this comm! Although, I've kept up on the sinful posts of May--so deliciously sinful. :) Sorry to not have contributed earlier. (Blame it on seasonal_spuffy , which should be fun to check out if it is your cup of tea.) But here I am again! :)

Rating: PG/FRT
