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.

We've had another damn fine week of fic. Please please please can you drop a few words of thanks once you've read. It really does make all the difference to the writers.


In summary....This week Giles has had his smoochies on. He's experienced an unforgettable moment, then forgotten it ;). We've started an intriguing new story and welcomed updates from two long-running excellent works.

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.

Help using FFmpeg: ffmprovisr

Ashley Blewer, an archivist specializing in moving images and a software developer, created a website, "ffmprovisr", to make it easier for you to use the program ffmpeg.
FFmpeg is a powerful tool for manipulating audiovisual files. Unfortunately, it also has a steep learning curve, especially for users unfamiliar with a command line interface. This app helps users through the command generation process so that more people can reap the benefits of FFmpeg.

Each button displays helpful information about how to perform a wide variety of tasks using FFmpeg. To use this site, click on the task you would like to perform. A new window will open up with a sample command and a description of how that command works. You can copy this command and understand how the command works with a breakdown of each of the flags.

FFmpeg is a free, open source tool that works on the command line and lets you do stuff like:
  • Change codecs (transcode)
  • Change formats
  • Filter stuff
  • Create GIFs and thumbnails
  • Normalize/equalize audio
  • Read/extract captions
  • Make test patterns
  • Fix audio that's fallen out of sync
  • Join or split files
  • Play an image sequence


I have used FFmpeg recipes in the past and it's great how much it can do, especially in combination with youtube-dl which makes it easy to download video from a ton of sites -- YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, and many others. I hope other vidders find ffmprovisr helpful in their work!

Note: DHW is having computer problems and can't access what she meant to post today. So, we are swapping days. She'll - hopefully! - have her lost tale back and ready to go on Sunday the 23rd which was originally one of my posting days, and I'm posting in her place today.

Title: In a Corner of My Soul
Chapter: I Robot; You Jane 2/4

Rating:
PG
Setting: Season 1 of BtVS
Word Count: 5381
Note: Many of these scenes were written for prompts at
Taming the Muse.
Warning: Inappropriate language; violence; death of a canon character

 

Appearances could be deceiving, take Masa Luna for example. Sure, up front it practically cloned a 7-11, if you ignored the offerings of Adobadas potato chips and Jarritos, a surprisingly refreshing soda, especially the lime. The back of the store, however, that's where the real action was: a late night grill offering up the best Mexican and Salvadorean fare this side of L.A. That fyarl messing the place up? So not necessary.  )

Music: Morningside by John Gorka
Summary: 'don't want to waste what I have to give'
Notes: I know it was due in part to budget reasons, but I love the show's emphasis on Clark's work as a reporter. I was also amused that it seemed like Jimmy ended up being the damsel in distress as often as Lois did.

Title: Crossing Lines

Author: littleotter73

Rating: FRM

Paring: Giles/Buffy
Word Count: 3943

Summary: When a misunderstanding has Buffy and Giles not seeing eye to eye, harsh words are said, challenges are thrown down, and lines are crossed. But maybe that’s not a bad thing.

Setting: December 2003, Post Chosen, no comics, no AtS past BtVs canon.

Beta: Many thanks to foreverbooks.

A/N: Written for Summer of Giles 2017.

A/N 2: This story and the one I posted before it In the Moment are prequels to a larger story I will be posting next week titled All of Him. The idea was that I was going to post this story as a bonus on the free for all day and post the larger fic today, but I was not able to get it done in time, hence the reason they are chronologically posted out of order.
