My mom is visiting for a week down here in sunny la-la-land, and so far we've managed to totally goof around without real plans - though we did go see Spy on Saturday and gave my landlady's front yard a facelift Sunday (it needed it). I'm trying to make it so we're more lazy than not just so when she goes back home she feels rested. Like tonight we're going to a comedy show, but since the meditation center we wanted to go to is closed on Monday, we're hanging out at home.

My landlady is finally showing her house to renters (anyone want a 2 br 1&1/2 ba in Los Feliz?), hence us helping clean up the front yard. (I live in the guest house in the back and while it looks like a converted garage it's really a two-bedroom open plan apartment that they laid foundation for and everything.) However, the people who have renovated the house have pretty much done so at the expense of the front yard, and the flower bed running around the perimeter was filled with old pots and slightly used supplies (grout bags anyone?) and some of the grass had been painted when the painter set up to repaint the house. All in all it looked pretty terrible. We moved border stones and for about $50 bought some pansies and a couple of bags of bark, rearranged the half-dead (but still alive) potted plants that were already there and made it so things have a shape and it feels like someone likes living there. It was really cool. I love gardening with my mom, and it was great to do it in my neighborhood too.

And in fannish things it was my day at Summer of Giles and I committed fic, which is really fucking weird, because I haven't in years. At least I did the art to go with it, so there's are there and stuff, and that feels normal.

Think it's gonna rain? (Giles/Faith, PG for language) Instead of using the device on Buffy when she wakes up, what if the Mayor intended Faith to use it on Giles?

Pari Passau (with Equal Step) (Giles/Buffy, PG) Before the Cruciamentum there was the bond between Watcher and Slayer.

Today I have for you a bunch of icons and banners. You'll note, the banners are square - they can also be used as images for iTunes if you're so inclined (I've been using them myself for albums that don't come with artwork of their own).

This set is the Giles-only and Giles+Scoobies artwork.

Giles - For as long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world, a Chosen One...
Buffy - He loves doing this part.
Giles - Alright. The Slayer hunts vampires, Buffy is a Slayer, don't tell anyone. Well, I think that's all the vampire information you need. )

Here's set two out of three - this time Giles + all the men I like pairing him with (Xander, Spike & Wesley). Hope you like!!

Giles - Xander's taken to teasing the less fortunate?
Buffy - Uh-huh.
Giles - And, there's been a noticeable change in both clothing and demeanor?
Buffy - Yes.
Giles - And, well, otherwise all his spare time is spent lounging about with imbeciles.
Buffy - It's bad, isn't it?
Giles - It's devastating. He's turned into a sixteen-year-old boy. Of course you'll have to kill him. )

Finally, I have Giles + the ladies (my favorite lady pairings, Buffy, Faith & Tara). Again, thanks for all of the lovely feedback - you guys are awesome - and happy SOG!!

Giles - That's all he said? Fork Guy?
Buffy - That's all Cryptic Guy said: Fork Guy.
Giles - There are too many guys in your life )

Apparently I'm fandom hopping. I promised some graphics to people... and then actually delivered! So inside you'll find some Buffy stuff, and then... I did a couple more completely unsolicited for fantastic crack!fics (one steampunk AI and one star-warsy Merlin)

so these are the big images - and they're already at a lj near you! )

working on an icon post to hopefully go up sometime soon!

My fadom!squee today is brought to you by two fantastic writers who took a gauntlet that I threw down a while ago... because in fandom, when you give, fandom gives back.

Remember this graphic?

two lovely writers have adopted it:

Blue, Red, and Grey (PG13) by [livejournal.com profile] eurydice72
A fantastic little ficlet by one of my favorite authors.  She was kind enough to depart a little from her favorite pairing and god I love it when she jumps ship.  It's lovely prose, with wonderful twisting words that go so incredibly well with the images.

Close Your Eyes and Go (NC17) by [livejournal.com profile] only_passenger
Unbenounced to me, only_passenger actually picked up the header when I posted it at [livejournal.com profile] darker_spike (in the hopes it would find a home) ... and she was kind enough to let me know a couple of days ago that she'd begun what she says is a bit of a "run away freight train" of a story.  Trust me, you should get on this train.  It's marvelous Faith voice, and wonderful Giles.  Worth every word.

It's coming up on Valentine's Day, and since I haven't put much out by way of graphics, I thought I'd make some banners and sorta story art (for stories that haven't been written yet, so you writers out there, that's a hint, really it is!) AND icons, of course.  All Giles pairings - my favorite ones. 

So Happy Early VD!
