love the idea, but white is so not G-man's colour.

Review of chapter "Main Titles" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Fascinating concept - I'd love to read the story that comes from the picture.

Review of chapter "Main Titles" from YademosEbyam
Oh PLEASE! I really want to see this one written; the possibilities seem endless. If you follow R&H(D) spirit mythology closely, only Buffy* will be able to see and hear Giles. She would want to keep the situation secret from her new watcher (Wesley?) to prevent a possible exorcism, and the Scoobies will probably think her crazy at first until Giles finds a way to prove his existance. (Bring out the Ouija board!) Vamps and other demons might be able to at least sense his presence, and there would probably be a few supernatural predators that could be a threat to him. A good limit would be a "psychic leash" of a defined length anchoring him to Buffy. (*Exceptions to the 'no-see' rule: maybe a few crazy/psychic people/vamps/demons and Dawn in season 5 [much to Giles surprise, since he doesn't remember HER at all].)

As to Giles's post mortum love life, I don't think Giles/Jenny is the way to go; she may be waiting for him when he moves on, but there should be a serious impediment to this. Widely spaced time windows he keeps missing to save Buffy or the others? Hidden feelings for Buffy's mom he only realized too late? (Picture a seriously freaked Slayer who discovers this. ;) And maybe a poignant scene during "The Body" where Joyce's spirit begs Giles to stay behind to look after her girls.)

This isn't one plot bunny, it's a whole warren!

At *least* a warren - with possibly a wererabbit thrown in to make things even more interesting ... :-)

I can see Xander cracking Quantum leap jokes, and Willow getting jumpy whenever she's trying to sneak magic books out of the library - and all of them trying to keep Faith and Wesley in the dark ... and Wesley getting more and more suspcious that his predecessor is still haunting the library becuase of all the strange things that keep happening. I like the idea of Wesley thinking he's figured things out and misguidedly attempting an exorcism - with Giles begging him not to be a pillock and having to cling to the library shelves as the mystic vortex Wesley summons up tugs him towards the Hellmouth ... and Buffy rushing in last minute to save the day!

And then, of course, Buffy goes off to college next season, with ghost in tow ... *Lots* of possibilities in that ...

This really has so much potential - and I have so many other things I'm supposed to be working on!

Review of chapter "Main Titles" from idontlikegravy
Hee, I love this idea, I hope you follow it up. The idea of Summers and Giles (deceased) is ripe with comic (and dramatic) potential. :)
Comments from author:
Isn't it just? I'm letting the story idea simmer a little - I have some peices I really need to finish before I start on something new, but I suspect this one may be too good to resist!
