A rare believable Giles/Oz. Oz tries to learn something from Giles to help him deal with the wolf. I have to admit I have a special fondness for couch makeout scenes, and this is one of the best. Quietly imaginative, terribly hot.
Awww. This is sweet, Ethan/Giles-style, which is to say, it's got hearts and flowers and blood and drugs and 70s music and hate and obsessiveness. A piece that neatly steers away from the twin E/G pitfalls of ludicrously unrealistic mushiness or equally unrealistic faux darkness. If you need another reason to click on the link, Debchan's Smallville caps (same site) kick ass.
The Spike, Prognosis
I hate the Spike for seeing the same thing I did in "Hourglass," but I can forgive her, since she turned out this short, absolutely vicious piece. I can already tell that this fandom is going to be overrun by the most tedious, unimaginative Lex-angst, but this is anything but. "Not so much a story as a scream," say the notes, and that's about right.
