*Waves* Hi everyone! I've missed all of you so much! :)

Characters: Xander & Giles
Rated: PG
Length: ~900 words
Beta: The fantastic All4Spike — thank you!
Summary: Rewrite of the scene from BtVS episode 4x17 "Superstar". With a simple incantation, Xander sets Giles's book on fire. Here, the rest of the scene goes a little differently. May contain gratuitous Star Wars references.
Disclaimer: Characters not mine, etc.
Feedback: Always welcome! Pretty please? :)

Too late, Xander slammed the book shut, extinguishing the flames that’d burst into existence upon his incantation. Judging by the acrid smell rising from the book before him, however, the damage had been done. Uh-oh.
“Good Lord!” Giles rushed forward and rescued the ancient text from his hands, tossing his glasses on the coffee table to bury his nose in the damaged spread for a very close inspection....

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.

Characters/Pairing: Rupert Giles
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Summary: He really needed to stop tempting fate.
A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line Maybe things would work out okay after all.

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?

Giles eyed the punch bowl with something akin to the way he viewed the brews he’d kept in the Magic Box - with suspicion and contempt. It wasn’t necessarily the raw eggs that made his head swim - though he had his doubts - it was the sheer amounts of sugar and brandy he’d watched Buffy add to the mixture.

“Come on, G,” Xander slurred, clapping his hand on Giles’ shoulder. “You haven’t lived until you’ve had some of the Summers’ secret family nog. Try some.”

“No, no, I think not,” he replied quickly. “Diabetes and alcoholism… I’d sooner die a fyarl.”

“Dear God, Xander! How did you manage it?” Giles gasped. “It's so tight, and yet, somehow it fits perfectly. Putting the olive oil just there was a particularly brilliant stroke. What I wouldn't give to be in your position right now!”

Title: Fascination
Note: Not only does it use the last line from Distractions, it picks up where that story ends.

“We have to go.”

As if dragging Giles to his feet had been a sign, the remains of ancient scholars rose from their seats. Their clothes fell to dust, leaving behind bare bone. Xander grabbed a book and threw it. Giles winced but the closest corpse, apparently beyond caring about the preservation of ancient tomes, caught the book in one bony hand and tossed it aside.

“Over here.” Xander grabbed the edge of a table and shoved it onto its side. It wasn’t much but it was something of a barrier between them and the advancing hoard.

“Good Lord, they aren't acting like proper zombies at all.”

“Proper zombies? Giles, they’re dead and they’re moving. What more do you want?”

“You don't understand. Zombies have minds of their own. These … creatures are moving as one, as if they were controlled by a single mind, possibly by the library itself. This is simply fascinating.”

Xander eyed the scores of corpses between them and the door. “Giles, there's a time and a place for 'how fascinating.' This isn't it.”

"Because you're mine now," the walls whispered.

Xander looked around the ancient library in alarm. At each reading desk he could see corpses of scholars bent over books. Different generations, different motives to their own perhaps, but all had rotted to husk and bone.


"Mmmm. Just a minute, Xander." The watcher was already seated, scrolls of slayer prophecy at his elbows. A notebook and pencil in eager hands. "There's something about Buffy in here."

To his side, a desk invitingly held the complete early X-Men comics but Xander pulled Giles roughly to his feet.

"We have to go."

I'm feeling good this morning so there are two drabbles. I'm possibly being a bit too competitive.

Title: Sacrifice

Characters: Giles, Xander

"If we'd been having sex, none of this would have happened."

Though his hands were tied uncomfortably behind him, Giles twisted to look incredulously at his similarly bound friend."Well not together, obviously," Xander continued. "I just mean if either of us had any kind of social life, we wouldn't be in this mess."

Giles looked to where the high priest was preparing his sacrificial alter and conceded the point.

"I suppose there are better ways to spend a Saturday night. Did Buffy give you any kind of timeframe for when she'd be joining us?"

"I thought you called her?"

He booked the next flight out to Sunnydale but Travers intercepted him.

"A monstrous resurrection. It is your duty, Rupert, to take whatever is out there and put it back in the bloody ground!"

"Not if it is really Buffy."

Travers oozed, "Then I'm sure Faith will eagerly take the opportunity to set matters right."

Giles could only smile. He'd anticipated that move already and phoned the jail. 'Yeah, Mr Stuffy Butt rang, but we're five by five here, G.'

"Faith isn't terribly interested in Council offers." He savoured his advantage. "What's the matter, Quentin? I thought you called her?"

“If only we had the keys we could go and warn Buffy.” Xander flapped his arms in frustration at the locked cop car next to them. “Just what do Watchers do anyway? Why couldn't you come with a Tardis or a flying carpet? We need magick in a hurry here, Giles!”

“It does seem to be something of an emergency doesn't it?”

“Enough with the tweed understatement!” But he stopped at the sound of an engine firing and Giles opening the passenger door for him. “Whoa?”

Giles shrugged and dropped the wires under the glovebox.

“It's a kind of magic.”

"If I understand," Giles began, "this contest features competing teams whose objectives are to 'chuck' pumpkins the farthest?"

"Yep." Xander responded cheerfully, "A tradition combining our two greatest loves- pumpkins, and things going splat!"


"C'mon Giles, give it a chance." Willow pleaded. "Some of them use catapults. They're not flinging rocks, but still, kinda' historical."

"Catapults were used for more than just breaching walls. Incendiary missiles, severed carcasses or-"

"Giles," Buffy interrupted "you're cute when you're all Watchery, but we're trying to get away from gruesomeness."

"It's on!" Willow squealed.

Ten minutes later, "Oddly enough, I'm quite enjoying myself." Giles admitted.

If all goes well, my four weekly drabbles for this month will lead up to my Halloween fic on the 31st. Crossing my fingers.

Prompt: Pumpkin


Xander grinned, snagging another pumpkin spice cookie courtesy of Buffy’s mom. The three friends turned to watch their librarian hurry through the student lounge.

“Let’s show Giles the meaning of Halloween this year,” Xander suddenly laughed.

“You wanna prank my Watcher?”

“I don’t know if that’s a good idea, guys,” Willow frowned. “They don’t even celebrate Halloween in England.”

“He’s been here for three years. About time he was initiated.” Xander’s eyes twinkled. “Come on… Two Slayers around. No Big Bad in sight. What better time!”

“This is not good,” Willow muttered as her friends leaned forward to whisper plans…

Pride Slayer

“…I really don’t have time to be dragged around,” Giles huffed as he was deposited somewhere on the African savannah.

“Good to see you, too,” Xander grinned. “Thanks for coming.”

“Yes… Sorry, I’ve missed you as well. Five hours in a jeep has made me rather...” He sighed. “You said you had trouble with a new Slayer? You’ve been doing wonderfully here.”

“I think Willow’s spell might have gone a little wonky. I mean, this Slayer’s a sweetheart, but…”

Giles froze when a large lioness walked up and rubbed against his hip.

Xander chuckled, “G-man, meet Nala of Pride Rock!”

“Sorry about tonight Giles,” said Xander, “My shot missed”

Giles remembered his fear when he’d seen how close the vampire had been to an exhausted Xander. “You’ve nothing to apologize for.”

“But if I’d got him you would’ve been proud of me, like you are of Buffy”

Giles looked over at this remarkable boy who continually put his life on the line. “Xander, I am always proud of all of you. Sometimes, you most of all.

Xander’s mouth fell open for a moment before his face lit up in a huge grin.

“Yeah?” Suddenly he wasn’t feeling quite so tired.
