Hi, all! My contribution today is the first two chapters of a new story:

Title: The Wedding of Frog Fears and Anthropomorphic Nonsense
Author: punch_kicker15
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Relationships: established Willow/Giles, other relationships to be named later.
Summary: When Willow and Giles' iPhones decide to get married, and an ill-timed wish gets made, chaos inevitably ensues.
Notes: This is a sequel to my story The Love Song of Frog Fears and Anthropomorphic Nonsense. People with long memories may remember that I wrote and posted the first chapter of this story to Summer of Giles a few years ago.

A little vid I did 'cause I couldn't find any of Giles & Dawn.  I love their relationship 


Title: A Father's Love/ A Watcher's Love
By: Wake Up In A Coma
Characters: Giles & Dawn
Song: Collide
Artist: Howie Day

Notes:  Hi guys, so my vid today is different to other's that I've done for our beloved Watcher in that it features DAWN!  The inspiration came from this when I was rewatching season 6 and decided to hunt down some Giles/Dawn vids but couldn't find any.  Anyhoo, this post/vid has two titles because it can be read either romantically or as a father/daughter relationship (which as I type that strikes me just how weird that is.)  My intention behind it was to be viewed as a father/daughter relationship but, after raiding my music library for a fitting father/daughter song, I couldn't find anything to fit them, so I went for the least problematic one I could find (which is still pretty problematic - but I was kinda sold on it from the first line, 'the dawn is breaking' ... :) )  

I hope you enjoy it.  Have a lovely weekend, guys x

I had meant to post this as part of the other chapter but I got confused and counted the prologue as the third. :| But that just means I had more time to fine tune it. Here it is: will try to have another chapter up today.

Title: Ripper

Summary: After the destruction of Sunnydale, the defeat of the first and the aftermath of the destruction of the Watcher's Council, Rupert Giles, the Scoobies and the Slayers return to England. Over 2 years later, the Watcher, living in his family home outside of London, is visited by an old ally, sent to aid him in the fight against evil.

Note: This story takes place 2 years after the events of Chosen and over a year after the events of Not Fade Away. Everything that happened during the run of both Buffyverse shows are canon. BtVS season 8, is not. Not for this story. This story is an AU that negates the events of the comics, though there are some elements that will be. The characters of the Fairweather sisters are prominent characters in this series. FCed by the Head sisters because a) I love Emily Head since she started in Emmerdale and b) I had her as a similar character in a different story but when I heard Joss's plans for the Ripper series I made some changes. This story is a work of fanfiction. Prominent characters belong to Joss Whedon. Though the Comics aren't a part of my universe (though I do still love them) because of certains actions taken by certain vampires against certain watchers, there are elements of the comics, especially season 8 that I will be using: little tidbits that such as the direction of characters since the end of the shows. Any chapter that contains any comic information will be noted in the chapter notes. I will also note any OCs. My head is a little fuzzy and my math is worse so if there's any confusion on timeline or anything at all call me up on it and feel free to ask :)

Rating: FRT Disclaimer: I own nothing, except the story.

Characters: Rupert Giles, Cordelia Chase, Lavinia Fairweather, Sophronia Fairweather, mentions of the Scoobies and Angel Investigations gang

Pairings: Rupert Giles/Cordelia Chase/Lavinia Fairweather/Sophronia Fairweather -- non-romantic.

This was supposed to be a series of ficlets of Giles doing routine errands, but RL did what RL does, so there's only one.

My poem "50 Foot," inspired by Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman (1958), is in the new issue of The Cascadia Subduction Zone. Also, CSZ v. 6 n. 4 (2016) is now available for free online; it includes my poem "Una O'Connor unleashes her scream," as well as poetry by [personal profile] sovay and an essay by L. Timmel Duchamp on Chris Kraus's I Love Dick.

The weather in Los Angeles is so humid at the moment, I feel like I must've inadvertently brought it back from Boston with me. I look forward to the return of our customary dry heat.

home from Readercon

I got home at midnight last night from the airport. I thoroughly enjoyed Readercon, though the air travel was more grueling than usual. (Virgin America has switched terminals at LAX, which led to gate-related delays in both directions, and when I went to get my bag last night, they had put the bags for five flights on one baggage carousel, creating a mob scene. Then the car I'd booked to take me home didn't show up for quite awhile.) At Readercon I dealt with the usual jetlag, plus some perimenopausal unpleasantness. Nevertheless, I had fun. It was great to see friends (and eat delicious Indian food with friends) and attend panels and readings. My panels ("Hidden Figures" and "Horror Fiction Is Where I Put My Fear (and Lust, and...)") went very well. During the latter panel, I loved hearing Teri Clarke, Darcie Little Badger, and Elsa Sjunneson-Henry talk about writing and reading horror. My reading was scheduled during the dinner hour and wasn't as well-attended as the previous year, but it was a lot of fun reading "Don't Look Back."

I only bought one book at the Dealers' Room: So You Want To Be a Robot by A. Merc Rustad, which I'd been looking forward to snagging, but as it does every year, Readercon greatly added to my to-read list. I attended the Shirley Jackson Awards (wearing my The Haunting of Hill House t-shirt) and cheered when The Starlit Wood won for best edited anthology. As always, there wasn't enough time to see everyone and attend everything I would've liked.

Now I am doing laundry and battling Jetlag Part 2. It is good to be home.

Ha ha, the universe fooled me

I was supposed to go to the radiation oncologist today so that they could start the scanning process to ensure they know where to aim the radiation, which should start next week. Instead, the oncologist came into the office and explained to me that the margins around the excised tumor are too narrow for comfort. He goes through the medical details. He provides me with a medical paper clearly explaining the situations and what's best. And he says that he recommends another surgery (ANOTHER SURGERY) to go back in there and get better margins. Of course, he says, I can also just do the radiation therapy with an extra boost at the end and then monitor me with mammograms. But he doesn't recommend it.

So I go home, freak out, down a Xanax, take a nap, and then wake up. Because that's how I roll. Then I do a bit of my own research and find out that about 1/3 to 1/2 of women who have lumpectomy have to have a re-excision procedure for this precise reason. I guess you can't actually tell when you're taking out the spot how wide the margins are and only pathology will determine it. And the margin is less than 1 millimeter and the standard is no less than 2 mm. And the risk of recurrence with a narrow margin is twice what it is with a 2 mm margin. It's still a small chance, but I've been operating on the plan of conservative care, since I'm so young (hah!!) that I have much longer for a new and/or invasive cancer to develop. So I should stick with the path I've been on, right?

It's taken me this whole day of sleeping and thinking and reading to wrap my head around this. I am REALLY not happy about another surgery since that raises its own set of risks, but it does seem to be the smart thing to do. Motherfucker. I mean REALLY MOTHERFUCKER.

Anyone want to weigh in? Feel free.

Fic: All of Him (Giles/Buffy) FRM

Title: All of Him
Author: [personal profile] littleotter73 
Pairing/Characters: Giles/Buffy, Willow, Xander, Original Characters
Rating: FRM
Summary: When an accident causes Giles to lose his memories, he only knows Buffy as the depressed Slayer he left back in Sunnydale after her resurrection six years ago, not as his wife and the mother of his son. Takes place five years after "Crossing Lines" and three years after "In the Moment."
Disclaimer: Just playing in Joss' sandbox.
A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017
A/N 2: Many thanks to [personal profile] il_mio_capitano  for the herculean beta effort! Special thanks to [personal profile] quaggy , who helped flesh out a rampant plot bunny into a story late one evening over chat, and also to foreverbooks for the encouragement and sanity checks.
A/N 3: It is not necessary to read Crossing Lines and In the Moment before hand, but it is recommended as there are references to both in the story.

All of Him: The beeping was incessant and not at all conducive to reducing the massive headache he was enduring. Or the throbbing in his right wrist for that matter. In fact, from what he could tell, most of him was quite sore.

And now we know
