FIC: The Clockwork Circuit of the Stars

I matched on Faith/Giles for rarepairfest, and after a solid six weeks of scrabbling around, trying to decide what to write, I ended up saying screw it, obviously the solution is world-saving fuck or die.

I wrote the last of this story less than 24 hours before it went live, and I honestly have no idea whether it's any good. But hey, I finished it. And yay, Faith/Giles.

Summary:

“So, Cliffnotes,” Buffy said. The table might’ve been round, but there was still no question which one of them was queen. “Slayer and watcher do the hokey-pokey, and the world keeps turning itself around.”

A long, thick, syrupy silence followed. Faith broke it by laughing, and everyone turned to glare. “What, like it’s going to be anyone except me and G?”

Your Faith voice is just so good!

Yay, thank you! Her voice is so distinctive, so that's great to hear. :)

(It occurs to me, looking at your icon, that of all the Buffy cast looking sultry in promo photos, Dushku is the only one who looks in-character while she does it.)

Quite true.

Well, maybe Julie Benz and Juliet Landau?

Though I don't think I'd call either of them sultry. Julie is more of an ice-queen type, and Juliet has looks that are very hard to fit into what you might call 'normal' categories.

Juliet is indeed one of a kind. :D And I don't feel like I've seen promo photos of Julie Benz, but yeah, she seems like she could make them work, too.

Well, Google Images have turned up a few things. I don't know if any of them would class as sultry exactly.

My main response to that collection of photos is, "Gosh, she's pretty." :D

She's very, very pretty though I am not convinced all the pictures are entirely her.

Yeeeah, your link sent me straight that person with curly hair and really bronzed skin, and I really don't think that's the Julie Benz I know.

There are also a couple of semi-nude pics, which I suppose could be Julie, but they could equally be photoshopped. Not sure.

I didn't see her in Desperate Housewives (I believe she played a hooker), so I don't know what she looked like in that.
