Last drabbles for the last day of a fun month. These two are linked.

Title: Go Where You’re Needed
Author: Quaggy
Word Count: 100
Pairing: Buffy/Giles
Last line prompt: "She turned and looked at him so sadly."


She turned and looked at him so sadly when he said that he was returning to England, but she didn’t seem surprised.

“I figured. You need to set up operations in London, right?”

“Yes, but I can stay here, if I’m needed.” But his words seemed to only make her more forlorn.

“Not as much as you are there. No one else can do what you do.” And suddenly, Giles realized that in a world full of Slayers, Buffy might reasonably assume that no one needed her.

Except he did. Down to his very soul.

“Buffy, please? Come with me?”



Title: Stay Where You Belong
Author: Quaggy
Word Count: 100
Pairing: Buffy/Giles
Last line prompt: "It didn’t matter how much she begged."


It didn’t matter how much she begged, Giles would eventually leave again. Buffy knew that without needing to be told. She just wasn’t enough to keep him by her side.

But she never expected that he’d ask her to go with him.

“You mean that?”

“With all my heart.” His voice shook with emotion and she knew he wasn’t lying.

“If I come with you, you’ll never be able to get rid of me,” she warned, blinking back tears.

“Promise?”

It was hard to say who reached for who first, but neither one had any intention of ever letting go.

“Giles, at this point, nothing new about you shocks me anymore.” Buffy was remarkably calm about their current situation. “Honestly, I’ve seen it all.”

“I highly doubt it,” he muttered, doing his best to hide behind the curtain, the blush rising up his naked chest to his cheeks.

Water streaming from her hair and clothes, she asked, “How did this happen anyway?”

“I-”

Wide eyes met his. “Did you, uh, make some sort of wish?”

Caught out, he frustratingly exclaimed, “Oh, bloody hell!”

“You wished for me to to join you in the shower???”

Apparently he could shock her still.

Title: Tattoo Removal Too
Author: Quaggy

Last line prompt: "Giles smiled but said nothing."
Notes: Set after right after Season 4. I wasn't expecting to write a sequel to Tattoo Removal, but sometimes the muse has other plans for you.


Giles smiled but said nothing as Buffy examined his arm.

“It’s gone!”

“Yes.”

“But how?!”

“The enjoining spell, I assume. My arm had started to itch afterwards, but I didn’t think much about it.”

“Places to go. Apocalypses to stop.”

“Exactly. It was only after our shared dream that I noticed it was gone completely.”

“Well, we have our proof now. Slayer healing really doesn’t like tattoos.”

“Evil tattoos.”

“Huh?”

“I had more than one. The others are fine.”

“Others?! As in plural? Like two or more?”

“That shocks you?”

“Giles, at this point, nothing about you shocks me anymore.”

Characters/Pairing: Rupert Giles, Xander Harris
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 100
Summary: Giles knows Xander is guilty.
A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line “It was you.”



“It was you.” Giles had known immediately who had taken his red sports car. He slowly turned around to stare at the red faced young man staring back at him.

Xander gave Giles his most innocent look as he stammered. “But I... uh...I didn’t touch....”

Giles quickly cleaned his glasses. “You parked it in it a different space.”

Damn. He had thought he’d been so careful. And then it dawned on him. “You were parked in that same exact spot. I made sure to check...” At the look on Giles’ face Xander stopped talking. He knew he had been had.

Last line: She was going to need it.


She was going to need it. Giles ordered burgers and sodas from the waitress and looked across the booth at Faith’s sad, pale figure.

“It’s over now. You did a good job.”

She made no answer and the sodas arrived. Giles blanched and ordered himself tea.

“What you saw,” he began. “The vision. It doesn’t mean it has to come to true.”

She looked at him.

“Faith, we defy prophecies daily. You are stronger than you realise. You are not going to blow your brains out in a cheap motel.”

“But it wasn’t me that I saw. It was you.”

Giles smiled but said nothing. There was no way he was going to allow himself to be dragged into this decision.

“Which one of these do you think fits me better?” Buffy repeated the question as she held up both of the skirts for him to see.

“You’ll just have to figure this one out on your own, Buffy.”

Buffy wanted to stomp her foot. “Why won’t you help me?”

“Let’s say I pick the purple one, what would...” Before he could finish speaking, Buffy quickly interrupted.

“What’s wrong with the red one?”

His smile widened. “I rest my case.”

A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line "“You better get some practice.”


“You better get some practice.”

Buffy bristled at the words. “Practice and patrolling is all I ever do.”

Giles held up his hands. “I didn’t mean...” He removed his glasses and quickly cleaned them before pushing them back up the bridge of his nose. “What I meant was this new creature, if the ancient texts are correct is something you’ve never faced before.”

“How bad can it be?” She’d been the Slayer since she was fifteen, she was positive she could handle herself.

He pointed to the drawing in the book.

“I’d better practice.” She was going to need it.

"You can't possibly be carrying any weapons." Giles stared open mouthed at the purple mini skirt and lacy top Buffy was wearing. "Aren't you patrolling tonight?"

Buffy nodded. "Uh huh."

"But your clothes aren't..." At the look on Buffy's face Giles stopped talking.

"Get with the times, Giles." Buffy grabbed her stake from the top of the desk. "Just because I'm the Slayer doesn't mean I can't look good while I'm slaying."

His eyes narrowed as a thought occurred. “Is Angel meeting you there?”

She tried to shrug nonchalantly. “He might.”

A deep sigh escaped him.

He should have known.

But when Buffy came down the stairs in that little black dress, stilettos, and the bright red lipstick that accentuated her pout, he knew his plans were doomed.

"Where do you think you're going?" Giles cautiously asked.

"I'm your 'plus one'."

"The invitation doesn't include a 'plus one'."

"The invitation doesn't include the bit about it being a big fat trap for gullible watchers." She smiled sweetly. "Maybe the card was too small?"

Giles turned and tugged at his bow tie in the mirror.

"I can look after myself, you know," he griped. "You can't possibly be carrying any weapons."

It didn’t matter how much she begged, he wasn’t going to give in. No amount of bargaining, reasoning, whining, or even threatening bodily harm was going to prevent him from staying in. If she wanted to go out clubbing with the gang, that was fine by him, but there was a fire in the hearth, a mystery novel by the arm of his chair, and he’d just made up an Irish coffee.

A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line Destiny had dealt her a solid.



Destiny had dealt her a solid. Granted that wasn’t her first reaction. Buffy had hated becoming the Slayer. She’d thought it had all but ruined her life.

But things changed when she moved to Sunnydale.

There she’d met Giles. The man who was her watcher, her first grown-up friend and if she were honest with herself in the deepest part of her, hidden away where no one would ever know he had become her crush.

“Ready?” Giles handed her the crossbow.

“Always.” She hoped her blushing wasn’t noticeable as she reached for the weapon.

Being the Slayer wasn’t that bad.

With a wicked smile on her face, Buffy spun around and lifted up her hair.

“It’s gone!” exclaimed Giles, his fingers brushed the nape of her neck where the tattoo had been.

“Yup! The back of my neck has been crazy itchy all day. By the time I looked, Ethan’s stupid souvenir had faded to practically nothing. I guess my Slayer healing doesn’t like evil tattoos. Or possibly just tattoos in general.”

“Amazing!”

“It sure beats a vial of acid!”

“Well, Ethan always did go for dramatic rather than effective.”

“So, his plan wouldn’t have worked?”

“Not on any level.”

She wanted to keep him all to herself, but she was going to have to give him back to his parents eventually.

“He’s quite taken with you,” Giles laughed.

“It’s mutual,” Buffy replied, smiling down at the infant.

“Has that inspired any thoughts?” he asked, his eyes hopeful.

“No, Giles, my biological clock isn’t ticking,” she replied and did her best not to laugh at his crestfallen expression. “Because we’ll have one of these of our very own by the spring.”

“Wait… Do you mean?”

“Here,” Buffy said, passing the baby to her awestruck husband. “You better get some practice.”

Maybe things would work out okay after all. The Master was dead, the Hellmouth lay silent once more and Buffy was on the way back to being her old self again. A relieved smile flitted at the corners of his mouth. Far be it for him to jinx it but he could dare say things were starting to look up.

“Giles, you have got to come quick. You are not going to believe this!”

Bloody hell! “Weapons?”

Xander nodded his head and followed Giles to the weapons locker. “Big ones.”

When was he going to learn to stop tempting fate?

"You'd better have brought enough to share."

Dru turned around and growled as she bared her fangs at Angelus who stood staring at her. At a strangled sound from the Watcher lying tied to the bed she spun back around and in a singsong voice she whispered “Shush now my lost lamb, Mummy’s here.”

From the moment she had kissed him in pretense the stars had whispered he belonged to her and she had fought to get him back. And now she wasn’t going to share him with anyone. Not even Miss Edith. It didn’t matter how much she begged.

Destiny had dealt her a solid pair of aces and Jenny wasn't going to pass up the opportunity. She stared provocatively across the card table at Rupert and tried to fluster him, but he drank his beer and stared back impassively - damn the man!

"Maybe we should make this hand interesting, English?"

"We have an equal amount of chips left," he said neutrally.

She slipped off her jacket to reveal more of her silk blouse.

"I'm prepared to go all in." She lent forward as she spoke and caught him looking. "And you'll have to call me to find out."

Word Count: 100

Maybe it wasn’t so bad being the Slayer after all. The healing effects were tres cool. Kicking demon ass was definitely up there as an aggression therapy tool… and bonus: all evil big bads thwarted resulted in (mostly) awesome after parties. Of course, there were major downsides to slaying: vamp dust, demon goo, and… death.

But looking across the room, Buffy finally understood what made it all worth while, the quiet support and approval of her Watcher. Giles flashed her that look of immense pride and respect and she answered it with a smile.

Destiny had dealt her a solid.

Following on from: A Slayer's Destiny last line: After all, it was her destiny.



After all, it was her destiny to fight the dark forces of evil alone. Nevertheless, as Buffy surveyed what seemed to be the most law abiding cemetery in the history of Undead Sunnydale, such a destiny kinda sucked on the slow nights.

Footsteps on the gravel path piqued her interest but it was only Giles. She ignored him pointedly, and he, saying nothing in return, sat down and proceeded to pour a thermos of tea, the smell of which had her wrinkling her nose in disapproval. However, things improved when he produced cake.

"You'd better have brought enough to share."

Notes: Post-ep for "Welcome to the Hellmouth"/"The Harvest"


It was her destiny, but that didn’t mean she had to like it.

Being the Slayer destroyed the life she had, but she had a chance to all start over again in Sunnydale. Except her new town had a vampire problem too.

But she had made a few friends already. Willow was all kinds of awesome and Xander wasn’t too bad either, once you got past the teenage boy posturing. And she liked her new Watcher far more than she wanted to admit. It sort of felt like she’d known him forever.

Maybe things would work out okay after all.

Last line prompt: "After all, it was her destiny."
Notes: Post-ep for "Welcome to the Hellmouth"/"The Harvest", technically speaking


It was her destiny, but it sure had turned out different from what she had expected.

She was still alive for one thing. Heck, it was well over fifteen years since the last time she died. And life had gotten pretty peaceful in the last decade.

Even though they all lived in different parts of the world, she was able to see Willow and Xander on a fairly regular basis. And Giles, once her Watcher and now so much more than that, was still by her side, stalwart and true.

Maybe it wasn’t so bad being a Slayer after all.

“Buffy, I...”

Buffy held up her hand to stop him. “I’m the Slayer and I don’t have a choice.” Her voice was small as she whispered, “I wish I did.”

“I wish that I could...” Giles’ voice trailed off into nothingness. No matter how much he might wish otherwise his Slayer was going to die tonight and there was nothing he could do to stop it.

After all, it was her destiny.
