Flist cheerup fic poll

So the deal is that I'm deep in headrush100's h/c fic prompt, at 12K words and rising rising rising. That has brought the tagfic game to a screeching halt. Meanwhile, I am sensing a deep disturbance in the flist. There is a general trend of misery, unhappiness, things-not-going-right-ness, and general lassitude. Since my fairygodmother wand is in the shop, I have resolved to do what I can while sitting on my ass in the Aeron chair in my office waiting for my officemate to make his stuff not crash the device so I can use it.

So therefore: fic jukebox time! Tonight only! Vote for Giles cheerup/comfort/happy fic.

Prompt words (optional)



Voting will close around 6pm PDT, or whenever I get back to my office with a slice of pizza stolen from the movie night gang next door. The goal is to get this written tonight. You will not get angst, death, misery, pain (except as necessary for h/c), or anything longer than 2000 words. I might ignore your prompt entirely. I might ignore the poll entirely.

Oh, and hey: if you feel like writing a ficlet to the specs requested in this poll, go for it. The world needs cheering up, dammit!

This concept is stolen entirely from kivrin, by the way. I thought it was a good idea.

Edit: First story will be Snitty-in-Braces!Giles with Buffy, in pr0n with a medium plot. Keep voting, though, because in a couple of hours I'm gonna look at the poll again and see if cheer-up fic #2 presents itself.
