Vid: Willow/Giles - We Belong [NSFW]

Ok, guys...  I've been a good girl for a very long time.  My vids are always respectful and plausible.  Well, this time I'm waving my ship flag high.  My girl, Willow, is finally getting the man of both our dreams!

Therefore, warning - there is sexual content in this video.  (I did, however, show it to my own mother and she said it was "just right".)

So, here we go.  
Willow/Giles - We belong  (Because it's from Willow's pov.) 

Song by the magnificent Pat Benatar!

Enjoy!!!

A few days ago, Mum found out that she may have a close blood relative she didn’t know about, who was the product of an affair and put up for adoption after he was born. Details are sketchy but we worked out from his birth year that it’s possible his birth parents met at a party my mother’s parents threw. 

I only know all this because she asked me to look into him and make sure it wasn’t a scam, and while it’s not a scam it’s also fucking uncanny how similar he and I are – not just physical appearance but hobbies and personality (as much as you can get personality from a facebook and a blog). He’s ten years older than me, but otherwise we’re pretty similar. 

I emailed her like “I think this guy’s on the level, he’s just looking for a missing piece of his family” and had to stifle a strong urge to be like “Also I want to hang out with him, so be nice.” 

I hope Mum likes him, I want to be his Facebook Friend.

This week in art, we have Giles featuring in three very creative wallpapers. In fic, we saw how clothes played a role in various stages of Giles’ life. In another story, an old ally comes to visit Giles in England and aid him in a new fight against evil. Then later, he and Anya take an insightful trip to LA. In the second installment of Sign of the Times, a teenage Giles experiences love and loss in his travels. And finally, Giles and Buffy discuss the education needs of the new Slayers.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Radio Free Monday!

Ways to Give:

[personal profile] dreamwaffles linked to a fundraiser for Kaye, who has been researching Rat Lungworm, a disease that almost killed her son Graham, who is now disabled and uses a service dog for everyday life. Kaye was a crucial part of the University of Hawai'i's RLWD research team and also the team trying to get legislative support and grant funding, but she's fighting medical debt for Graham's treatment and ongoing needs. You can read more and help out here.

[tumblr.com profile] rilee16 is still struggling to cover medical expenses after two head injuries last year, and is now dealing with an eye infection they need to get treatment for before their roommate and her toddler come back from vacation, so they don't infect the baby. They're raising $50-$60 in the short term for medical treatment; they also have a long-term fundraiser running to cover living expenses, previous medical bills, and a recent rent increase. You can read more and help out here.

[tumblr.com profile] anna-guth is a student from Germany who was recently accepted to Redroofs School for the Performing Arts in England, but her parents can't afford the full GBP24K tuition. She is raising E6.5K for tuition and school fees; you can read more and reblog here, or give directly to the fundraiser here.

[tumblr.com profile] echosiriusrumme is a student trying to buy her own clarinet; at present she doesn't have her own instrument to practice with but has a pressing need to practice before auditions and recitals for a Performance track next fall at her university. She has a few options lined up for between $800 and $1.3K, but needs to raise the funds to cover the cost; she is offering to repay over time any funds contributed to the purchase. You can read more and reblog here (plus find a ko-fi link) or give to her paypal here.


And this has been Radio Free Monday! Thank you for your time. You can post items for my attention at the Radio Free Monday submissions form. If you're not sure how to proceed, here is a little more about what I do and how you can help (or ask for help!). If you're new to fundraising, you may want to check out my guide to fundraising here.

[personal profile] the_huffster posting in [community profile] summer_of_giles
Title: Sign of the Times
Pairing: Eventual Buffy/Giles, but for this part mentions of Giles/OC and Giles/Faith
Rating: Between a PG-13 and a light R
Setting: Comic!verse
Warning: Mild swearing
Summary: Giles is quickly finding that growing up is still just as complicated, especially when it concerns the matters of the heart
Disclaimer: I own nothing
Word count: 2,937
A/N: Work has been hectic this past month, but more so this last week since I'm training for a new position. But I'm going to start catching up on everyone else's posts tonight and hopefully be all up to date by my last posting day. That is also why this part is being posted so late in the day.

1) I took these a while ago and kept forgetting to post them. Just some more photos of birds on our balcony, including a new set we hadn't seen before. Read more... )

2) We watched Moana this week. I think it may be my favorite Disney "princess" movie so far. Read more... )

3) We finished S1 of Travellers and I was glad to hear it's been renewed for S2. It's a lot harder these days to keep up on whether a show has been cancelled or renewed, and if it's returning, when. Read more... )

4) Another study on how people get news has some interesting results when it comes to young readers in different countries. Also an interesting surprise is that the increase in use of ad blockers has rolled back. (Although perhaps the bigger news is that only 24% of desktop users and 7% of smartphone users use it at all) Read more... )

5) When Petzi posted this article on heat wave impact, my first thought was that the lack of climate change planning also involves a lack of migration planning. Because surely over the next 50 years there's going to be a substantial move by people (or a lack of moving) from one part of the U.S. to another. Read more... )
