Hi, guys!

I wanted to have a lot more, but I ran out of time, so for starters, you've got two pieces of artwork, a Wallpaper and a sig.

Hope you like, and will have plenty more for my next date.

So while our dear Captain is off getting some much needed R&R in the sun and surf, I have the helm! BWUHAHAHAHAHA! It's been another fun and fabulous week here at Summer of Giles that started off with a bunch of haikus about our favourite Watcher. This week Giles considered Buffy's request after the events of Tabula Rasa in Alternate Plans, was the subject of observation from an outsider in People Watching, and provided comfort and aid to a de-aged Buffy in a fic inspired by the comic!verse in Kids Today. We were also treated to another installment of the Chronicles of Ripper series in The Chronicles of Ripper: The Book of Thoth. Then we had another story about teenage Giles in the comic!verse dealing with the effects of puberty in the first chapter of Sign of the Times. Lastly, Giles and Buffy learn the value of Father's Day in Parenthood.

Title: Parenthood

Author: [personal profile] will_conqueror1
Rating: FRT
Pairing: Buffy/Giles
Summary: Mother’s and Father’s days in the Giles household
A/N: This year my posting day happened to fall on father’s day. Father’s day falls in the middle of SoG every year, however Mother’s day never does, so I decided to do a series of short ficlets of Mother’s and Father’s days throughout Giles’ life.
A/N 2: Got it done just in time. It's not quite 11 in my time zone, though I realize for most of you Father's Day came and went already. I would have posted it earlier, but I only started writing it four hours ago.

Word Count: ~1300

Sign of the Times (1/3)

the_huffster: (Default)
[personal profile] the_huffster posting in [community profile] summer_of_giles
Title: Sign of the Times
Pairing: Eventual Buffy/Giles, but for this part there are mentions of Buffy/Spike
Rating: Between a PG-13 and a light R
Setting: Comic!verse, starting with 2 years after Giles is brought back
Warning: Since Giles is a teenager going through puberty, certain things happen in situations so be forewarned that this part is going to mention that
Summary: Giles thought puberty was bad the first time around, but he's quickly learning that it's a whole lot worse the second round
Disclaimer: I own nothing
Word count: 2,975

A/N: So this fic is gonna be made up of 3 parts that have at least 5 different vignettes and I know it says comic!verse, but the only thing you really need to know is that Giles died and was brought back as a 12 year old. Also, sorry for the late posting...work turned into a nightmare so I wasn't able to post this a few hours ago like I had wanted. And shout-out to [personal profile] will_conqueror1  for giving this a quick look over

Of Letters Never Sent (792 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] SelenayDoctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Bill Potts
Additional Tags: Vignette, Character Study, Episode Tag
Series: Part 6 of Collected Bill Stories (Doctor Who)

Summary: She asked the Doctor once about visiting her younger self and he'd given her a two hour lecture about time and paradoxes and theories about time stability. She hadn't understood all the maths he'd scrawled on the blackboard, but she'd followed enough of it to work out that meeting her previous self was a Very Bad Idea.

Title: The Chronicles of Ripper: Book of Thoth

Author: will_conqueror1

Rating: T

Summary: Rupert Giles is given an official title at the Council, he expected to be placed in research or translation, instead he was placed in the mysterious Department of Acquisitions.

Pairing: Rupert/OFC

Timeline: Takes place in 1983, three years after the events in the previous entry of this series, Guilt.
Previous Entries:

The Chronicles of Ripper
Guilt: Part I, Part II, and Part III

Word Count: ~8000

A/N: I am still working on my prequel to this series The Misadventures of Ru and Clara, unfortunately the scope of the story was far greater than I originally anticipated and I knew I would not have it ready for my first posting day. I still hope I can have it in time for my last posting day, or by the free for all day. If not, I will probably save it until next year’s SoG. That being said, because I had originally planned to post the first installment of the Misadventures series I hadn’t any intention of posting something to the Chronicles series, this story was a last minute replacement when I learned I wouldn’t have the other fic ready in time, and was completed in less than five days, so I want to send a special thank you to [personal profile] the_huffster for giving it a once-over and to [personal profile] littleotter73 for letting me bounce ideas off her.

A/N 2: Spells performed are actual spells in the Buffyverse (from both the series and the comics), they can be found here

[personal profile] beatrice_otter posting in [community profile] vorkosigan
Thought up by Royce Day on the Bujold mailing list:
Honestly, there's a fanfic to written about what the poor Betan
Ambassador to Barrayar was doing during the whole mess with Cordelia's
defection to Barrayar, marriage to a war criminal, and then bringing
back Vordarian's head at the climax of the coup.
That is a fic I would love to read.

Title: The Coronation of the High Hierophant (AO3) | (Teaspoon)
Author:[personal profile] circular_time
Rating: T
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Fifth Doctor/Nyssa (mostly platonic)
Word Count: 51K Words, 8 chapters, IT'S DONE IT'S FINALLY DONE
Summary: On a human colony where Baroque France and classical Rome are so far in Earth’s legendary past that both are mined for “wisdom of the ancients,” the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa are swept into a fantastic world of pageantry, allegory, advanced gravitational engineering, dance and court intrigue.
The Doctor believes Nyssa has found true love. Nyssa believes she has found someone who needs their help. After the Doctor leaves Nyssa to her new life, she’s forced to embrace the masquerade far more deeply than she had intended. Will the Doctor defy the Web of Time to extricate her from the jaws of history?

quaggy: "Is This A Kissing Book?" (Skeptical)
[personal profile] quaggy posting in [community profile] summer_of_giles
Title: Kids Today 
Author: [personal profile] quaggy 
Rating: PG/FRC
Setting: Comic!verse inspired 
Pairing(s): Nothing overt
Word Count: about 2000
Summary: Still the body of his younger self, Giles watches over Buffy after she too is de-aged.
Warnings: Nope
Notes: This takes roughly place sometime after Season 10 of the comics, but be warned, this is written by someone who has only skimmed the comics. That's why I say it's comic!verse inspired, not necessarily compliant. And a HUGE thank you to [personal profile] littleotter73  for the speedy beta. 

If you prefer, you will also find it on my DW and over here on AO3. I'm happy to receive feedback in any of these places.

Title: People Watching
Series: Est Omne Iustus Academici
Author: [personal profile] quaggy

Setting: Post-Chosen, shortly before the season 5 Angel episode "The Girl in Question", but you don't have to watch that episode to know what's going on.
Pairing(s): Giles/Buffy
Word Count: a little over 2000
Summary: The observations made in an airport about a woman named Buffy.
Warnings: Nope
Notes: This is the start of series that I plan (eventually) to tell out of chronological sequence. It's a little light on the Giles, but I'll be posting something later to make up for it.

If you prefer, you can also find it on my DW and over here on AO3. I'm happy to receive feedback in any of these places.

“The coalescence of femslash as a metafandom unto itself may have paradoxically contributed to a bird's-eye view of its marginality. As we might glean from the primacy of slash as the unmarked term (denoting same-sex couples in general and male-male couples in particular), F/F remains underrepresented not only in scholarly research but also arguably in fandom overall (compared to M/M and also to het [heterosexual] and gen [nonsexual] fiction and art).

Femslash fans often frame their experience in this way, as was the case at the "Where's the F/F?" panel at the May 2015 WisCon feminist science fiction convention in Madison, Wisconsin. The conversation took as a jumping-off point detailed statistics, compiled by destinationtoast, on fan fiction posted at Archive of Our Own.”

Setting: Post-ep for "Tabula Rasa"
Pairing(s): mild Giles/Buffy
Word Count: about 2000
Summary: After the events at the Magic Box, Buffy makes a request that could change her whole life.
Warnings: Nope
Notes: Believe it or not, this started as a 100 word drabble for [community profile] giles_shorts that grew to epic proportions. I decided that it would be better here.
