quaggy: Giles and Buffy from the Pilot episode (Buffy)
[personal profile] quaggy posting in [community profile] giles_shorts
Welcome to our last week for the Giles's Record Collection monthly theme. As you might have guessed, we've been picking our weekly prompts based on actual bands that Giles either mentioned or had in his record collection. So, how could we possibly end this month's theme without the weekly prompt of:

PINK FLOYD

In honor of this week's theme, [personal profile] littleotter73  has again made us some lovely fanart! More than one! You can find all her pretty art from this month's theme over here. Go tell her how much you like them!

The sub-prompts are again all Pink Floyd song titles, but you can bend and twist them anyway you want. Or use any other Pink Floyd songs or lyrics as inspiration.

"Comfortably Numb"
"Another Brick in the Wall "
"Wish You Were Here"
 
Remember, there's no time limit for when you need to post your prompt-inspired works. These are merely to get you inspired and get you writing. Drabbles or ficlets of any length are most welcome. Take these prompts wherever you see fit, including any pairings and characters that you please, just as long as Giles somehow involved.
 
Happy writing and see you next week!

Character: Giles

Rating: FRC

Setting: Pre-Series

Prompt: Velvet Underground - Head Held High

Word Count: 100

Disclaimer: Just playing in Joss’ sandbox


He sat in the chair, hands cuffed, staring at his boots, scuffed and covered in demon ichor - all that was left of Randall after the failed exorcism - facing a murder charge. The police had raided the abandoned building just in time to witness him beheading an Eyghon possessed Randall. The rest had scattered, but weakened by magicks, he’d been caught.


“Let him go. His story checks out. An 8mm film camera was found on the scene, but no body. Just film students having a lark.”


 

Ripper Giles walked out of the station, but not exactly with his head held high.




Ficlet: Sweet Gen (FRT, Giles/OFC)

Title: Sweet Gen

Author: Will_conqueror1
Rating: FRT
Pairing: Giles/OFC
Summary: Oz triggers a memory from Giles’ past, and of a woman he once thought he’d spend his life with.
Timeline: Season 4 “The Harsh Light of Day”, when Oz is looking through Giles’ record collection.
Word Count: 581
Author’s Note: This takes place in my Chronicles of Ripper series, which I’ve often said I try very hard to keep canon compliant. However, you don’t need to read the rest of the series for this short story to make sense.
Author's Note 2: I was very excited about this prompt because The Velvet Underground is one of my favorite bands and I love that he has Loaded in his collection. The song this fic was inspired by is "Sweet Jane" by The Velvet Underground. Click here for a listen.

 This week's prompt is inspired by a certain scene during Season 4's "The Harsh Light of Day" as seen below...


That's right! This week's prompt is:
The Velvet Underground

Just like last week, we have addition sub-prompts for you, if you are interested. These are all song tracks from Loaded, the specific album tha Oz was holding up. They are:
Who Loves the Sun
Head Held High
I Found a Reason

Remember, there's no time limit for when you need to post your prompt-inspired works. These are merely to get you inspired and get you writing. Drabbles or ficlets of any length are most welcome. Take these prompts wherever you see fit, including any pairings and characters that you please. Just as long as Giles is in the mix somewhere, of course!

As for another bit of housekeeping, as those of you on Tumblr might already know, Otter and I have started a Giles-dedicated blog, which you can find here. It's a good place to get some visual inspiration. To help with the writing we created a few tags for posts associated with the current theme. Here's the one for the Giles's Record Collection theme and this is the one for last week's Cream and/or Clapton prompt and this is the one for the Velvet Underground.

Happy writing and see you next week!

Characters: Giles, Buffy

Rating: FRC

Setting: After Giles returns in Bring on the Night in season 7

Word Count: 100
Prompt: Strange Brew

“Erm, Buffy?” Giles interrupted tentatively as she spoke with the new potentials. “I, uh, don’t mean to alarm you, but there’s a… strange brew… fogging up the buffet table,” he informed her as he pointed to the pale green concoction in the crystal punch bowl. “You did tell Anya this was a Christmas party, yes?”

 

Buffy rolled her eyes. “You’ve lived in the good ol’ USA for how long and have never had lime sherbet punch?”

 

She ladled him a cup of the green potion and he recoiled in horror, shaking his head.

 

“I’ll, uh, pass on the swamp water.”
