drinking beer

Drunken!Giles 2011 master list

It is the time of year when Giles breaks out a bottle and a glass and indulges himself in his favorite adult beverages. In fact, he's been over-indulging. Maybe it's been champagne, eggnog, good ale, cheap beer, moonshine, mixed drinks, or a simple glass or five of single malt, neat. Maybe he's been with friends, lovers, enemies, the Queen of Faerie, or all of the above. Maybe he's alone. Whatever it was that happened, he had too much and now he's drunk.

Find out how it happened that Giles came to be drunk as you read this year's collection of stories for the Drunken Giles ficathon.

If you have written a story for the collection, please comment here with a link and maybe a bit of information about your story. I'll add it to the list! I'll collect story links until January 31, 2012, so you have lots of time to write one of the fine available prompts featuring a drunken!Giles.

Title: Day to Day Living http://thea-bromine.livejournal.com/21609.html
Author: thea_bromine
Pairing: Giles/Xander
Rating: FRT
Summary: no prompt. It's England, it's Christmas Eve and Giles and Xander are going to the pub. Giles doesn't know why they're going to the pub, and he thinks he may have forgotten something important.

This is part of my Kaleidoscope Universe but should make some sense even if you haven't been there.
