After the fall of Sunnydale, Rupert Giles was determined to help the new Slayers however he could. He traveled the world for some time, reaching out to them and working with them as needed. They were off to a rough start though, the new slayers. Many had no idea how to manage their own strength, and one or two of them even went rogue. Others were still scattered across the planet, perhaps not even knowing what they were. They were slipping out from underneath his thumb, and the more he saw, the more he realized that with 100 Slayers plus Buffy and Faith, one man would not be enough to help them all. What they needed more than anything was more Watchers. One simply would not be enough to teach them, and Buffy had her hands full. Andrew was hardly a substitute.
He returned to England to try and pick up the scattered remains of the Watchers Council, expecting to find only a few old books and records and perhaps one or two retired individuals who managed to stay clear of the explosion and the harbingers. Much to his surprise, he discovered that a rather large handful of members survived, and had even built a new headquarters, relocating to Mayfair in Westminster. While many highly regarded members perished, there were enough remaining to make a difference. The Council itself had ceased their less honorable traditions, and Giles found that it no longer left a sour taste in his mouth to fully accept back his title as Watcher.
Under Buffy’s leadership the slayers followed suit and built a headquarters of their own nearby. Though she didn’t seem thrilled to be working with the Council yet again, it appeared that she understood this wasn’t the same heartless bureaucracy that had nearly killed her on two occasions. Giles would see to it that it stayed that way. With everything going on, she had more than enough to think about without having to worry about being stabbed in the back by those who ought to be on her side.
Giles acclimated rather quickly, and it wasn’t long before the Council briefed him on their newest task: find and stop the person responsible for London’s recent string of murders. There was no reason to believe it was supernatural in cause—the victims were very human— but the mastermind behind the killings was quite the escape artist, and the frequency of his strikes was increasing rapidly. Human or not, he had to be stopped. Giles found himself a decent flat as close by as he could manage. He had always liked being in the midst of the fray after all, no matter what that entailed, and this time it would mean using all the resources the Council could possibly give.

:( oh wow, I wasn’t expecting this :( I’ll miss you *cries*
<3 i’m sorry, shcool has been driving me crazy and Ill miss you guys so much but like I said, come talk with me on those other blogs!
So this extended hiatus I think is going to become a bit more permanent. I’m really sorry but I’ve got some other blogs I’m working on right now and I have to focus on school and its just a lot to handle. But I didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye. Like, there might be a possibility I come back to check in every now and then, but I just wanted to let you know if you want to talk, you’re welcome to hit up some of my other blogs.
I’ve recently joined an RPG called Into Each Generation. Its amazing and honestly has changed a lot of my perspective on roleplaying and I encourage you if you are interested in the Buffy!Verse at ALL you should totally consider joining. It is an incredible roleplay with supportive, great people and mods and if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer.
We’re currently looking for an Angel and a Giles and the season is coming to a close so it would be the PERFECT time for you to join.
This is the link to the rpg if you want to check it out.
I currently play the role of Buffy, as well as another OC slayer named Peyton. If you want to hit up either of those blogs to say hi, you’re totally welcome to. I’d love to hear from some of you guys!
With that, I’ll say bye for now, but hopefully I’ll talk to some of you soon.
So we visited Sherlock’s grave and noticed something missing..
We made our exits in an unblinking fashion.
If you take the date season three of Sherlock will air - 01.01.2014 - and add up all the numbers in there - 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 4 - the result will be 9.
The same number of episodes that Sherlock will have in the end of Series Three.
❤ Happy Tennant Tuesday ❤
