rthstewart said: Giles, no eating or drinking in the library
It takes less than a week from the first day of school for Giles to give up on maintaining a properly clean and quiet environment in the library. He can manage the vast majority of the students — some well-timed glares and a few low-level spells to manipulate shadows, create a creeping sensation on the back of the neck, or deliver static shocks if any food or drink get too close to the stacks work wonders — but Willow’s forlorn eyes, Xander’s incessant nattering, and Buffy’s blithe disregard for minor pain rapidly force him to exempt them from his wards.
He consoles himself with another terrible jelly-filled donut as he listens to his Slayer and her friends bicker over the latest crisis in this impossible town, and doesn’t even twitch as the powdered sugar drifts down to coat the pages of his priceless book of prophecy.
OMG, an actual three-sentence ficlet! \o/
