“I don’t have to sign in blood?”

“No, young Rupert, we don’t take ourselves that seriously. It’s not a pact with the Devil.”

“I’m sorry, I’m just a little nervous. I’m grateful for the opportunity, of course.”

Later there was discussion among the faculty members. “Are we quite sure that the younger Giles is Watcher material? His father was very steady man, but I’ve heard his son has a quite a mixed past.”

“We have vetted him. There was some magic dabbling among dubious company but he seems to put it behind him.”

“So we watch the Watcher.”

“Very closely.”

Very nice. Captures the two-faced Council very succinctly. Good stuff!

Lovely drabble. I love the dichotomy of the supportive, reassuring voices with the skeptical, disproving voices later.

Isn't that the truth! Which is why they really had no way of dealing with Buffy!

Hey, sorry I've been a bit AWOL lately. Been crazy.

This was really great. I like how the confidence, doubt, and pragmatic points of view come out from the two authority figures here. Just what I expect from Council members: being aware of Giles' past, respecting the Giles family name and assuming he'll tow the line, and yet, doing the trust, but verify thing.

Woo! :)
