Oh noes! top ten reasons meme!

Comment with the words "Top Ten" or "Top Five", and I will reply with a subject for which you will generate a top ten (or top five) list. Post the list and instructions in your own journal.

gileswench wants: 10 reasons why Giles should take his shirt off as often as possible!

Jenny Calendar: Ooh. I get only one reason why England should take his shirt off? Because of the way he squeaks when I tickle his ribs while he's struggling with the buttons. And then he stutters at me, exactly as if he weren't the sexiest man in Sunnydale.

Joyce Summers: Oh, dear. We never did take our shirts off, did we? Or much of anything else. Though Ripper did make the strangest sound when he found out I wasn't wearing any panties. *giggles* He needs to take his shirt off immediately so I can see what he looks like!

Olivia: The man was not meant to wear clothing, and most especially not those dreary chunky earth-toned sweaters he seems to have gone mad for. Clinging black silk shirts, that's what I'd put him in. At least long enough to make him strut about before he took them off for me.

Ethan: He's stayed in shape, has my Ripper. But really, if he's shirtless, then I can be playing with his nipples, which makes him less likely to be kicking me in the kidneys. And much more likely to be letting me play with other parts of his body.

Oz: Hmm. He looks good. Going with that.

Anya: Rupert is quite manly and fit for someone of his age. And taking off his shirt is usually a prelude to sex, which I have discovered is especially good with someone with his level of experience. He had a lot of pure technique and he's also attentive to my responses. It's gratifying.

Spike: Oh, no! Admit that I liked what I saw when I was tied up in that git's bathtub? Never going to happen. Especially not when he would have his morning shave wearing nothing but a towel with the water beaded on his chest all tasty-like. Hated that.

Willow: I think it's because of the cute fuzz he has on his tummy. I like the way it vanishes down into his pants. Sort of a promise about what you might find if you follow it. Okay, okay, what I did find, which I was way more into than I thought I was gonna be.

Xander: Oh jeez, I should not be allowed to talk about this. The last time I did it turned out I was talking right in front of one of the women on the Sunnydale Chamber of Commerce and she could not stop staring at Giles funny through the entire duration of the next town small business owner's confab. But it's because he only does it when I'm already entirely buck naked like a jaybird in a birthday suit, and the next thing he takes off is his belt and do I have to spell it out for you?

Buffy: Huh. Well, I'm going with the muscles in his arms, which I totally did not expect until the first time he took it off. I mean, duh, the guy fights with a sword all the time. Those things are heavy. But I was surprised anyway. He picked me up and carried me upstairs. Made me feel all girly in a good way.

Tags: , brought in a committee to answer the question, I see. Then again, with expert witnesses of that calibre, well, what can one do but accept the evidence at hand? I bow to their combined superior knowledge.

Awesome, babe! Da Wench be pleased!
I hope it wasn't cheating to get them to answer for me. But I was kinda stuck on the problem of reducing the list of reasons to just ten. I mean, even with this cast of characters helping I had more reasons than I knew what to do with. Wesley is hammering on the door of my office right now, demanding to know why I didn't let him give his reason.
If you and your minions feel like adding a few more reasons, well, who am I to object? I'd love to hear what Wesley has to say.
Excellent list!

I'll be chicken and say "top five"... but reserve the right to do ten if the mood strikes.
Your top five reasons why you like writing Giles! And for a bonus: your top five for writing Wesley!
*uses shirtless!Giles icon iin honor of the subject at hand*

I'll live dangerously and try a Top Ten.

Top Ten Stupid Patron Responses to Clearly-Posted Library Rules. (Answer as yourself or Rupert Giles, depending on your whim.)
I think I like Xander's answer the best, though Olivia does have a good idea with the black silk....

I'll take ten.
From you, I'd love to see... The Top Five Things about Sunnydale that surprised Elisabeth when she found herself there.
This is wonderful, loved the Spike and Anya voices - spot on.

But if he did take his shirt off all the time would we become bored looking at his hairy chest and muscled shoulders? - Nahh didn't think so.
Faith: Man, you go to prison and everyone just forgets you exist. The main reason Giles should take his shirt off more often is because somehow the man wears those dress shirts and suits like all the responsibility and rules of being a Watcher are woven into them. The shirt comes off and he's just a man - a wicked hot one - but just a man.

*gets lost in thought*
