TARA: of course you want to bring your mother back, and I wish we could, but it's not possible.

DAWN: Why? You guys do magic for all kinds of things.

WILLOW: We do, but...

TARA: This is different. Magic can't be used to alter the natural order of things.

DAWN: But all you do is mess with the natural order of things. You make things float & dissappear and...

TARA: But we don't mess with life and death. Dawn.. I know how bad you hurt...

DAWN: You don't. They put her in the ground!

It’s been another banner week here at Summer of Giles! On the visual arts front, we have a lovely portrait of Giles and video highlighting Giles and Dawn’s relationship. In fic, we’ve been taken along Giles’ extremely dark and self destructive path during his time running around London, and we’ve also experienced a mundane day in the life of a Watcher posted on the Hellmouth. We also had an update to the post-Chosen “Ripper” story, experienced hijinx when Giles and Willow’s iPhones decided to get married, and were treated to the conclusion of Part IV of the Sanctuary Series titled Labyrinth.

Please remember to leave love and comments for our content creators. Feedback has been very sparse this year and everyone has worked so hard to make Summer of Giles a fun and wonderful experience this summer. So please, read, view, and show your appreciation.

And lastly, authors and artists, please remember to tag your entries.

Title: Labyrinth
Author: [livejournal.com profile] darkheartwalsh
Rating: FRAO
Setting: Several years post-Chosen, no comics
Pairing: Giles/Buffy
Word Count: Approx 9,500
Warnings: Mild kink, explicit sex (you know the drill…)

A/N: The continuing saga of the PWP that ran away and developed some semblance of a plot.

Thank you very much to [personal profile] dragonyphoenix, who was kind enough to swap posting days with me after my catastrophic technical failure last week.

It's an AO3 only link today (apologies), as DW is buggering around with formatting. Urgh.

These are the concluding chapters (3 and 4) of Part IV in the Sanctuary Series. You can find the other parts of this series linked below.

PART I – Sanctuary
PART II – Anchor
PART III – Confluence
PART IV - Labyrinth (chp. 1+2)

Summary:
Dating is a minefield. And that’s just when you’re single, nevermind in a definitely-not-a-relationship with a man who might technically be your boss.

If Buffy were a betting woman, she’d put money on Giles being jealous. But she isn’t, and he’s definitely not.

Apparently.

A little vid I did 'cause I couldn't find any of Giles & Dawn.  I love their relationship 


Title: A Father's Love/ A Watcher's Love
By: Wake Up In A Coma
Characters: Giles & Dawn
Song: Collide
Artist: Howie Day

Notes:  Hi guys, so my vid today is different to other's that I've done for our beloved Watcher in that it features DAWN!  The inspiration came from this when I was rewatching season 6 and decided to hunt down some Giles/Dawn vids but couldn't find any.  Anyhoo, this post/vid has two titles because it can be read either romantically or as a father/daughter relationship (which as I type that strikes me just how weird that is.)  My intention behind it was to be viewed as a father/daughter relationship but, after raiding my music library for a fitting father/daughter song, I couldn't find anything to fit them, so I went for the least problematic one I could find (which is still pretty problematic - but I was kinda sold on it from the first line, 'the dawn is breaking' ... :) )  

I hope you enjoy it.  Have a lovely weekend, guys x

BUFFY: I have all this power. I didn't ask for it. I don't deserve it. It's like... I wanted to be punished. I wanted to hurt like I thought I deserved. I sorta think?you know, this is, um, complicated. If you'd rather just fight...
HOLDEN: Tell me.
BUFFY: I feel like I'm worse than anyone. Honestly, I'm beneath them. My friends, my boyfriends. I feel like I'm not worthy of their love. 'Cause even though they love me, it doesn't mean anything 'cause their opinions don't matter. They don't know. They haven't been through what I've been through. They're not the slayer. I am. Sometimes I feel? this is awful?I feel like I'm better than them. Superior.
HOLDEN: Until you can't win. And I thought I was diabolical?or, at least I plan to be. You do have a superiority complex. And you've got an inferiority complex about it. (laughs) Kudos.

I had meant to post this as part of the other chapter but I got confused and counted the prologue as the third. :| But that just means I had more time to fine tune it. Here it is: will try to have another chapter up today.

Title: Ripper

Summary: After the destruction of Sunnydale, the defeat of the first and the aftermath of the destruction of the Watcher's Council, Rupert Giles, the Scoobies and the Slayers return to England. Over 2 years later, the Watcher, living in his family home outside of London, is visited by an old ally, sent to aid him in the fight against evil.

Note: This story takes place 2 years after the events of Chosen and over a year after the events of Not Fade Away. Everything that happened during the run of both Buffyverse shows are canon. BtVS season 8, is not. Not for this story. This story is an AU that negates the events of the comics, though there are some elements that will be. The characters of the Fairweather sisters are prominent characters in this series. FCed by the Head sisters because a) I love Emily Head since she started in Emmerdale and b) I had her as a similar character in a different story but when I heard Joss's plans for the Ripper series I made some changes. This story is a work of fanfiction. Prominent characters belong to Joss Whedon. Though the Comics aren't a part of my universe (though I do still love them) because of certains actions taken by certain vampires against certain watchers, there are elements of the comics, especially season 8 that I will be using: little tidbits that such as the direction of characters since the end of the shows. Any chapter that contains any comic information will be noted in the chapter notes. I will also note any OCs. My head is a little fuzzy and my math is worse so if there's any confusion on timeline or anything at all call me up on it and feel free to ask :)

Rating: FRT Disclaimer: I own nothing, except the story.

Characters: Rupert Giles, Cordelia Chase, Lavinia Fairweather, Sophronia Fairweather, mentions of the Scoobies and Angel Investigations gang

Pairings: Rupert Giles/Cordelia Chase/Lavinia Fairweather/Sophronia Fairweather -- non-romantic.

SPIKE: Hello, all. What's going on then?

GILES: Spike, you're not welcome here.

WILLOW: Yeah, and by the way, we're working on a way to de-invite you from here. Even if it is a public place.

XANDER: Nah, forget it. Letting him in is good, 'cause then we get to toss him out.

ANYA: Ooh, can we throw him out the window like the robot did? 'Cause that was neat.

Title: All of Him
Author: [personal profile] littleotter73 
Pairing/Characters: Giles/Buffy, Willow, Xander, Original Characters
Rating: FRM
Summary: When an accident causes Giles to lose his memories, he only knows Buffy as the depressed Slayer he left back in Sunnydale after her resurrection six years ago, not as his wife and the mother of his son. Takes place five years after "Crossing Lines" and three years after "In the Moment."
Disclaimer: Just playing in Joss' sandbox.
A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017
A/N 2: Many thanks to [personal profile] il_mio_capitano  for the herculean beta effort! Special thanks to [personal profile] quaggy , who helped flesh out a rampant plot bunny into a story late one evening over chat, and also to foreverbooks for the encouragement and sanity checks.
A/N 3: It is not necessary to read Crossing Lines and In the Moment before hand, but it is recommended as there are references to both in the story.

All of Him: The beeping was incessant and not at all conducive to reducing the massive headache he was enduring. Or the throbbing in his right wrist for that matter. In fact, from what he could tell, most of him was quite sore.
