In honor of Giles's favorite American holiday, we are pleased to announce Giles Shorts' very first...
Giles's Halloween Fanfic Extravaganza!!! 

On October 31st, for one day only, we are lifting our (admittedly lax) word restriction to host Halloween-related BtVS fics of all lengths. They can be creepy. They can funny. They just have to be in keeping in the spirit of Halloween. Bonfire Night and Mischief Night fics are also welcome as well. (Giles is British, after all!)

Chose any characters or time period that you like. Pre-series, post-series, episode-related, canon-divergent, comic-verse, completely AU, anything goes! (Just remember Halloween wasn't really a thing in the UK until recently and it's still not celebrated to the same extent it is stateside.) We do ask that works that are longer than 100 words at least feature a cameo from Giles. And yes, that means that 100-word drabbles featuring any Buffyverse characters with or without Giles are welcome.

For those of you who are familiar with the [community profile] summer_of_giles Free Day, it works something like that. No need to sign up, just post whatever work that you have, whenever you are ready. (For those of you that do not have DW accounts and would like to participate, please contact us at giles.shorts@gmail.com). 
Just remember you only have until 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time October 31, 2017 before the magic ends and we go back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Hi All,

I would like to announce that we have a change in moderators here at Giles Shorts. Due to her real life responsibilities, [personal profile] il_mio_capitano  has decided to step down from her duties as mod. I'd like to thank her for her hard work and dedication over the last several years. Giles Shorts was born from a private comm we hid out in to practice our drabble skills. At her urging, we decided to go public and she took the helm to inspire short fic centered around our favourite Watcher. Thank you, my Captain, for everything.

On a happier note, I am excited to welcome [personal profile] quaggy as my new partner in crime. Though she has been writing fic for over ten years, she is a relative newcomer to the BtVS fandom and has been a regular here at Shorts for over a year. In fact, her first BtVS post ever was in Giles Shorts! And... she is bringing with her some awesome ideas for new themes and prompts. I am totally jazzed, you guys!

So without further ado, from quaggy's genius mind, our September theme is: Giles' Record Collection

Tomorrow there will be a new weekly prompt to help everyone out with the theme. So keep your eyes out for that.

Again, many thanks to il_mio_capitano and welcome, quaggy!
