Third parties

A "Blackmail"-related poll that I might or might not pay any attention to, but that asks a question I am nonetheless generally interested in about reader preferences.

So one of the prompts in the smut_69 table is "threesome". I have my own thoughts about who I'd like to throw into the mix with Buffy and Giles (assuming I take the prompt literally and don't subvert it somehow). What are your thoughts?

Poll #972889 G+B+?

Guy or doll?

Guy.
16(69.6%)
Doll.
3(13.0%)
Your outmoded conceptions of gender must be discarded.
4(17.4%)

Would Giles top or bottom with this third person? Of course he'll always stay submissive to Buffy.

Dom.
8(36.4%)
Sub.
3(13.6%)
Why not abandon the D/s thing for this one?
11(50.0%)

Buffy and Giles should share a special moment with...

Xander
3(14.3%)
Oz
1(4.8%)
Riley
0(0.0%)
Ethan
3(14.3%)
Wesley
6(28.6%)
Spike
1(4.8%)
Somebody I'll name in a comment.
1(4.8%)

If I were to enjoy the sight of Giles, Buffy, and a second woman, I'd go for...

Willow
4(18.2%)
Tara
2(9.1%)
Anya
4(18.2%)
Someone I'll name in a comment.
1(4.5%)
For a series allegedly about empowered women, it's sure short on female characters.
5(22.7%)

What have you got right here?

Paul Revere
9(39.1%)
Valentine
0(0.0%)
Epitaph
1(4.3%)
Huh?
13(56.5%)

Guys and Dolls quotage for the win!

(My personal favorite is 'Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat'.)
When you see a gent
payin' all kinds of rent
for a flat that would flatten the Taj Mahal
Call it sad, call it funny
but it's better than even money
that the guy's only doin' it for some doll!
It's funny, my first impulse was "a guy, of course!" but then I looked at the list of guys and was like, "Meehhh . . . none of those really appeals. But Anya . . ."
Of all the women available (late season 4), Anya is the most interesting. Agreed. Strongest, most sure of herself, most playful. Most likely to have fun.

Tara at that stage requires development and change.
Willow has been changing, but in the wrong direction.
Also the most likely to get all three of them to that point. Because she'd just say it, you know? No circumvention required.
Faith! Of course! Yes, and she's even possible because she was out of her coma and running around causing havoc. Huh.
I'd love to see something with Faith. Or possibly Oz. I'd say Giles should be dom, if for no other reason than that I think Buffy would like to see him being a dom for someone else, but if you go with Oz, I think Giles should sub.

I tend to agree with you about what Buffy wants to see. Heh. Faith is very tempting. I'll need to think.
