Drabble: 10/27/98  

If all goes well, my four weekly drabbles for this month will lead up to my Halloween fic on the 31st. Crossing my fingers.

Title: 10/27/98  (Halloween set 1/4)
Author: Gilescandy
Rating: FRC
Characters: Core Four
Prompt: Pumpkin


Xander grinned, snagging another pumpkin spice cookie courtesy of Buffy’s mom. The three friends turned to watch their librarian hurry through the student lounge.

“Let’s show Giles the meaning of Halloween this year,” Xander suddenly laughed.

“You wanna prank my Watcher?”

“I don’t know if that’s a good idea, guys,” Willow frowned. “They don’t even celebrate Halloween in England.”

“He’s been here for three years. About time he was initiated.” Xander’s eyes twinkled. “Come on… Two Slayers around. No Big Bad in sight. What better time!”

“This is not good,” Willow muttered as her friends leaned forward to whisper plans…

Oh wow, yes. I love the idea of pranking Giles and I adore the plan to build this in stages to a big finish.

Bring it on!

Glad you're so excited. And I hope I don't disappoint. But I should be able to make it work with any prompts you wanna throw at me.

I've already got the main story written. Can't wait for you to read it!

I shall resit the urge to make the prompts too crazy, though don't worry too much if they don't fit. There are no rules in this comm, really. (Shh, don't tell anyone.)

Can't wait to read it! Am seriously thinking of writing a Giles versus the Headless Horseman myself.

Don't worry on my account. I think I can fit just about anything into the flow with this one. And crazy is good. Might just inspire something even I wasn't expecting.

Oh... Giles vs. the Horseman! I want. Write it!

Oh, oh. Xander pranking Giles. This can only lead to badness methinks.

It could. But how do you scare a man who tends to end up in fights with demons on his normal days? Xander better think this one through ;)

Oh I wonder what kind of prank they will play on Giles. If Xander is in charge I can just imagine it backfiring.
gilescandy: Sexy Ggilescandy on October 6th, 2013 06:47 am (UTC)
Yep. They better think hard. How do you scare a man who has things jumping out at him in has normal life?

A "quiet" hellmouth plus a prank? What could possibly go wrong? Looking forward to reading the rest.

Thanks. And I look forward to writing it. Scaring someone with a life like Giles' is gonna be no easy task.

Let's see Xander's idea plus the other's helping out ... it can only lead to madness. Can't wait for the full story.
