I'm trying to work out when the first Scooby research party where they ordered in pizza happened. I've watched through "I Robot; You Jane" and haven't seen it yet. I'm wondering because for my Giles as the Big Bad story I'm making Giles hedonistic, one of the signs of which would be him not eating the pizza but ordering something for himself from one of the better local restaurants.

And while I'm on the subject, what other signs of Giles' hedonism can you think of? I've already got the idea of a killer car. He might dress slightly better but he also would feel the need to dress as well as the Council would expect him to so possibly not so much there. He's hitting on Jenny much more quickly. What else?

So I'm watching "I Robot; You Jane" and I'm up to the scene where Moloch scans the school records for info on Buffy. The screen shows a birth-date of 10/24080, but then when Moloch sends the data to Fritz, the birth-date has changed to 5/6/79. Ooops! *amused grin*

I'm revisiting the Zomney Apocalypse because I was watching Dawn of the Dead and finally understand why Whedon says "Spam has its own key" at the end. Nice, I did rather wonder about that when watching this.

Also, a friend, Brian, laughed his ass off when he saw Dawn of the Dead because it was set in the Monroeville mall and a bunch of his friends were zombie extras. Other in the theater apparently backed away from Brian slowly. Laughing at zombie movies can do that.

Captain America story. Damn it's good. Decoys.
Summary: The serum makes Steve stronger, but not bigger. Instead of a superhero, he becomes a spy.
Line that says it all: Captain America means both more and less than it once did - it's secrets as well as heroism, lies mixed up with freedom.

In the story I’m working on, the one where Giles is suddenly twelve, I use a number of different nicknames for him. His aunts call him Rupes. His mother calls him Roo. Even Faith calls him Giles.

This got me thinking that Giles isn’t a sixty year-old man in a sixty year-old body, he’s a sixty year-old man in a twelve year-old body. His self-image is going to take quite a beating. He is going to have to reinvent himself although probably not right away. I can see him hanging onto his old self-image tooth and nail before he finally realizes it isn’t working. That’s sort of fun although I really don't believe it'll be explored in the comics.

College. Good times.

That's me in the back, the one sitting in the middle of the couch wearing glasses.

In the Which BtVS Character Are You? quiz, I got Giles. At first I didn't think so but then I gave it some thought.

  • He ran off to be Ripper. I flunked out of college and moved to Hippy House.

  • We each went back to the straight and narrow.

  • We each had a mid-life crisis and realized our values weren't the same as those of the organizations we worked for.

  • We each were "let go" by said organizations.

  • He went back to playing music. I took up writing.

It's not a perfect match. I'd totally be vampire chow in a second.

Title: Shopping!
Fandom: BtVS
Summary: Giles is sixty but his aunts can only see the twelve year old he appears to be.
Rating: PG
Characters: Rupert Giles, Faith, Lavinia (Vin) Fairweather, Sophronia (Sophie) Fairweather
Disclaimer: They aren’t mine, not yet, but they will be … once I’ve conquered the world. Bwah-ha-ha!
Note: In the comics Giles is killed and then brought back in the body of his twelve year old self. This plays with that idea but is AU.
Note: This is sequelish to a story I’m writing for Summer of Giles which will be posted on the 29th.
Note: I haven’t read the comics so I’m completely winging the aunts.
Note: Written for a prompt at Taming the Muse: capsize

Giles, standing in Faith and Angel’s flat as Faith, ignoring him stared, out the window, felt as if he were poised between the past and the future. The week at his mother’s home had quite a bit to do with that. Resting there, helping Mum weed the garden, rediscovering the simple pleasure of a cup of hot cocoa, these had all restored an equilibrium he hadn’t realized he’d lost. He was going to need it. Buffy didn’t know he was alive. Buffy didn’t know he was twelve.Collapse )

I need more help for my story. So after Giles is brought back to life in his 12 year old body, he and Faith drop in on Giles' mother unannounced. I figure she'd probably want to make Giles' favorite meal but she's going to go with whatever she currently has in the house. Naturally she's not going to want to let him out of her sight. What could she serve?
