Oh noes! Pay it forward meme

From malnpudl via gileswench: PIF meme: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet, but you will receive it within 365 days. The only thing you have to do in return is "pay it forward" by making a similar agreement on your blog.

The "gift" you send doesn't have to be handmade. It can be fic, icons, whatever.


Fiction, because my icon-making isn't reliable enough. What I'm willing to attempt:

BtVS: Giles gen, any Giles pairing you care to name (Giles/Buffy, Giles/Xander, Giles/Ethan obviously favorites, but I'm agreeable). Buffy gen.
Sherlock Holmes: friendship, mysteries, adventure. If you ask for slash, something weird will happen.
Harry Potter: I'll cross over either of the above with the HP-verse, but I'm not quite up to writing standalone here.

Note the one year clause. I can cope with that.
If you want to repeat the prompt you gave me the other day, this time with commitment from me instead of vague hmmms, go for it.
Existing verses are fair game too. Go nuts.

Prompt:

Buffy&Giles Harry Potter crossover. Will require screwing with the space-time continuum, because I'd like to see it set post-Chosen, and somewhere in one of the first four HP books.

*ponders*

I give you free rein on the plot with the following caveats: you do not have to pair Buffy & Giles, but if you don't, I think they should definitely still be bestest-friends. And I would love to see the two of them on broomsticks. And possibly some Quidditch, even if it's just a pick-up game or a four-man-scramble or something, because there was no Quidditch in book 7 and I was bereft.

I'll post the meme in the morning... right now I'm about to fall asleep on the keybo.............
I have no troubles screwing with the space/time continuum. Eddie's in there, and that's his sofa.

I think I'll pick book 4, while Hogwarts still had some semblance of routine but the kiddos are old enough to have sensible conversations with. Not sure yet what the Buffy/Giles relationship will be, but gotcha on the having a close and good one of whatever it is. Check on quidditch of some kind.

The fun part of this is inventing a reconciliation between the magic systems of the two verses. Though BtVS/AtS never had a magic "system" so much as a set of immediate plot conveniences.
sweet, i made it fun! ^_^

I have an upcoming two week break between semesters. I might just take the time to work on my own BtVS/HP crossover. *ponders*
Okay, you! You're wastin' yer prompt here, 'cause I'm gonna write more Ars Draconis eventually anyway. Just at my usual glacial pace. C'mon! Ask for something specific!
Giles/Xander, possibly something in the "Cloud Animals" verse. Fluffy, angsty, anything I'm not picky. I just really enjoy your Xander and want to see more of him.
How about utter, unbearabley cuddley slightly-ahead-of-story-timeline schmoop? Set a few months after "The Complete Set".
