Author: Gilescandy
Rating: FRC
Characters: Core Four
Prompt: Autumn

10/29/98

“Psst, Wil. G-man around?”

“He muttered something about California’s lack of autumn and wandered outside.”

“Great,” Xander pushed the door open. “Buffy, coast’s clear.”

Willow sighed as Buffy entered carrying a large assortment of paper and inflatable skeletons. “What now, Guys? He hasn’t mentioned the bugs. I say leave it alone while you can.”

“That’s just ‘cause he hasn’t figured out it was us, yet.”

“Who else would it be?” she dead-panned.

“Doesn’t matter, time for phase two! You guys start blowing these babies up. When we’re done, every dark corner in the stacks will have a spooky new resident.”

I think 'who else would it be' is a fair point. :)

I sense he's not going to take this lying down. Can't wait to see.

And I sense that you might be catch on to my dastardly plan. I can't wait for you to see either.

Having to sit on this story has made this the slowest month ever!

LOL! Again, very amusing. I must agree that wondering 'who else' could be responsible is within reason-- for one thing, this is Sunnydale. For another thing, we're talking about GILES. If Ethan isn't lurking around the corner, which is always a possibility, I'm sure there are other skeletons hiding in his closet... and not the harmless inflatable sort! :P

Just waiting for one of these halloween-y pranks to be TOO realistic/effective, causing Giles to take up arms and start researching a ritual to purify the library-- although I'll bet you've got something even better up your sleeve. XDDDD

Will be keeping my eye out for the rest!

Yes, this is Giles. And I think some people are forgetting he's only disguised as a stuffy librarian. They may be starting something they can't handle. But then, they spend most their time annoying Giles, so this will be no different, right? ...right?

I can't wait to post the full story on Halloween!

Hmmm... somehow startling the man that use to be called Ripper doesn't sound like a good idea to me. Great add on looking forward to the completed story.

LOL. Thanks. Yeah, I think Ripper will be able to handle the situation.
