Characters: Giles, Buffy, Scoobies.
Written For: Challenge 8: Conference at doubledrabbles.
Summary: Giles has information for Buffy and her friends on the latest menace threatening Sunnydale, so he calls a somewhat unorthodox meeting.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
A/N: Double drabble.
With the entire town rendered speechless by demonic entities, Giles gathers Buffy and the Scoobies for a conference of sorts in one of the university’s lecture halls, which happens to have a very useful overhead projector. They might as well make use of the available facilities since lectures, along with everything else not considered essential, have been cancelled until further notice.
It’s a peculiar strategy meeting, with communication limited to writing, drawing pictures, several dubious attempts at mime, and some hit and miss lip-reading, but under current circumstances they must use whatever tools they have at their disposal. Hence the projector.
Giles is quite proud of the presentation he’s created from what he’s learned; he worked hard on the transparencies, even including illustrations. Not much more than stick figures it’s true, he’s nowhere near as talented an artist as Olivia is, but the drawings don’t need to be elaborate; they get the necessary information across quite effectively, if he says so himself.
Meeting over, he assigns duties; Buffy will patrol as usual, try to keep the Gentlemen from acquiring any more hearts, while the rest of them continue with research. There must be some way to get their voices back.
