BtVS Double Drabble: Giles’ Collection

Title: Giles’ Collection
Fandom: BtVS
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Giles
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 014: Reference at doubledrabbles.
Spoilers/Setting: Season One.
Summary: The reference section of Sunnydale High’s library is a bit out of the ordinary.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
A/N: Double drabble. 200 words first try.




For a school library, the one at Sunnydale high has a rather… unusual reference section. Oh, it has all the usual kinds of books, history, geography, science, math, dictionaries and thesauri, copies of all the standard textbooks students are supposed to read. There are sections devoted to poetry, great works of literature, novels in a wide range of genres, even books on music and art.


Unlike most high school libraries, however, Sunnydale has a remarkable collection of books on the occult and mythology. Vampires, demons, incubi, succubi, werewolves, witches, and everything related to them. Some of the books are the standard kind available in mainstream bookshops; there’s even the complete Time Life collection on the paranormal. Others are incredibly old, books of lore and prophecy, many handwritten centuries ago. They range from the lurid and fantastical, to the dry and academical, and cover just about everything a student of the paranormal could ever want to know on the subject.


Giles knows the contents of many of the books almost off by heart, which shouldn’t be surprising; the collection is his after all. But despite its comprehensiveness, it’s by no means complete; it’s what he doesn’t have that worries him most.



The End










Comments

No wonder they insist on training there, and with elements in Season 5 of that show, the heroine of the series is beginning to study theology- well a lot of the hazards in theology is darker elements in it, and what to avoid that kind of element.
Especially with the hazard of the First Evil, pretty likely a seraph gone bad originally named "Lucifer"- that's right, I'm making an educated guess that the First is best known as the Devil- to fight that thing you really do need real theology and understanding of that topic to defend yourself from it.
Love these works you write, as per usual, please do keep them up!
Sincerely one of your hopefully entirely too many fans;
Vantiri.
Thank you.
Very nice insight.
Thanks! I really love Giles, but he's a worrier!
