Fic of the Week: Guardian by JBG, Rating PG-13/FRT  
Hi guys,

So sorry this is late. I am on vacation and I haven't really been online much. Anyway, this week's fic is Guardian by JBG, rating PG-13/FRT.

Summary: What exactly was transferred when Giles performed the ritual in the desert? What does it mean to her now that he's gone? And what will she do about it?
Setting: Season 6.

As per usual, please leave your thoughts and reviews in the comments below. The chats this weekend will be hosted by the awesome foreverbooks. Have fun!

So I finally got to read this. I blame school getting in the way of gilesbuffy *shakes fist*. Anyways I enjoyed this.
I didn't like how the story seemed to put all the blame on Buffy at some points. I mean yes, Giles stood up for her but that's Giles. He would step up for Buffy, even if its her putting herself down. the narrative itself seem to call Buffy the bad guy and that really rubbed me the wrong way. Or maybe I am reading to much into it who knows.
The big thing I liked about this fic is when they got into the ghost story part of it. It was very interesting and I was directly on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens. Makes me wish that more of the fic focussed on Giles and Buffy facing off ghosts and monsters. That actually sounds a good idea, get on that fanfic writers!
