Notes: This was originally inspired by a prompt from het_idcrack round 1: "Buffy/Giles. During a knighting ceremony (by the Queen? by the Slayer herself?), or a similar rite, Buffy decides she likes him on his knees." Further inspiration came from a wickedfox manipulation.

My summer_of_giles offering this year is a long, plotty id-fic featuring Giles, Buffy, swords, vampires, politics, Quentin Travers, people engaged in mock combat, more vampires, a collection of original characters, and almost zero Virgil. I hope you enjoy it. All historical inaccuracies are entirely irrelevant. If matters of fact begin to trouble you, simply repeat the words "Giles in armor" until the worry fades.
