I offer to make up the five:

http://estepheia.livejournal.com/577098.html Broken English by estepheia is a very special fic.
http://summer-of-giles.livejournal.com/286821.html Right of Claim by 0_ruthless_0 is long and satisfying too.

Oh yes, Estephia. Excellent rec. I'd forgotten that one. And I'm not familiar with Right of Claim. Excellent. Something new to read. Thanks!

I've really never read any Giles/Ethan, although it's a pairing that makes sense to me (especially pre-series). But after reading Ethan Rayne versus America (and loving it) I'd planned to read The Morning of the Magicians. Somehow, I didn't get around to it, and then saw it recced in Buffyverse Top 5, but I was occupied with a lot of other reading based on recs there. Then I saw it recced again here.

Well, I started it, and I'm totally hooked! So thanks for the rec, and I'm excited about reading some of these others.

There were so many recs coming at us so fast that it was hard to keep track of them all. I did get In the Morning of the Magicians from the BtVS Top 5. I may have read it in one fell swoop when I was having trouble sleeping (or that was some other story. Hard to recall now.)

But yes, I am very amazed at how awesome it is.

Giles/Ethan used to be such a popular pairing.

twilightofmagic wrote some good ones, as I recall. Unfortunately, I don't think they're available on LJ any more. :(

Excellent. Thanks for the rec. I managed to find one: Dancing in the Park.

Ooh, you found it. I'm so pleased. That was the one I was mainly thinking of.
