Hey all, I'm back! I'm in my new house and, while I'm still living out of boxes, I can at least find the kitchen. A big thanks to Ann for taking my rec last week. I didn't have internet until Monday.
Anywhom, my first rec of the day is short, but I liked the concept. Giles, Willow, and Xander are at his flat. So is Olivia. It's after the Gentlemen and she is there asking him to leave with her. She tells him that he has no reason to stay there, after all, he's not the Watcher anymore. The ending says it all. It's called Why I Stay by Angelus2hot
and I think it really sums up how needed he was.
My second choice is also short. It's set in season three, literally right at the end of Helpless
. How was Buffy feeling? Could she forgive Giles? If so how? This is some beautiful writing and it takes us into the mind of the Slayer, helps us see how she was feeling. It's called After all, she was the Slayer by KateKat
My last pic is a 300 word drabble. It's a Buffy/Giles piece. I'm actually very impressed that in 300 words, the writer can take us on a journey though Buffy's mind, how she got from, "He's my Watcher, eeww" to "I want him so badly", to that first kiss. It's totally worth the read. It's called Prompt 8 Drabble (Okay, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a name) by Willowschild
I hope you have a good weekend and happy reading!
