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.


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

I love these drabbles! There is so much angst and yet such a great release of emotion at the end. So satisfying and so good!
