Summer of Giles is a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fest for all forms of fanworks relating to Rupert Giles, inspired by Summer of Spike.

A two month extravaganza of Giles-y goodness. From June through July this site will be devoted to Rupert Giles, our favorite Watcher, librarian, sometime magician, smart, occasinally sarcastic, warm-eyed, sexy and protective man from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
We take our inspiration from the many 'seasonal' character (or pairing) sites in the Btvs/Ats community (the original, of course, the ever popular summer_of_spike). summer_of_giles is a multi-media event celebrating every aspect of Rupert Giles. The idea is that each day a different talented writer or artist will post Giles-specific offering(s) for the community's viewing/reading pleasure. Gen artwork and graphics are wonderful! And every pairing is welcomed, as long as it's about Giles! (And hey, we also welcome threesomes, foursomes and moresomes if you're so inclined!)[1]

In 2017, the comm moved to Dreamwidth. All new works are posted on DW, and the archive has also been imported to that site. The LJ comm remains available for comments.

The fest is still active as of 2019.



Nominated in the 'Better Crypts and Graveyards' (Best Website) Category in the Running With Scissors Awards round 6 (2009).
