It's been a growing obsession

And now that I've seen it mentioned elsewhere, I've decided it's worth a public acknowledgement. I know there are at least two other folks out there who've been pulled in this direction, so I feel less of a perv for asking.

Anybody know of any good Willow/Giles fic? Short introspectives, long genfic or smut, I'm interested. Very. I've been avoiding writing to it, keeping it very subdued, in Carthage, but the pull is tremendous, now that Willow has grown up. There's probably no small amount of WillowSueism in my interest, for without a doubt she's the character I most identify with, and the Ripper, at least, could give Spike a huge run for his money in my personal lustathon.

So...anybody? Recs? Plot bunnies for the ficlet muse?

PERV! Kidding.

Actually, I think I would put Willow/Giles right after Willow/Xander in the "plausible Scooby-cest pairings" ranking. Maybe ahead of it these days, under the right circumstances.

Hrm - looking around... I haven't read any of these, but here's a place to start.

Here's one. It's kinda schmoopy. I know of at least one s4 s/b fic with w/g, as well, but it's really tangential to the story.

Hmmm.... Thanks Elz & Laura. There's an awful lot of dreck out there, huh? I'll keep sifting. There was a good one in lounge_lily's journal. I want more like *that*.

Unfortunately, that's the case with most unconventional 'ships, I've discovered. The Spuffy (I loathe that term) fans are lucky, and spoiled, because there's been so much good stuff written for our 'ship. I got a very rude awakening when I went looking for BTVS femslash and found almost none, and what there was usually was abysmal - and this was despite the fact that I was looking for probably the most popular femslash pairing (B/F).

So, yeah, dreck abounds.

Re:
Wow. I know I'm a fandom newbie and all, but I'm honestly surprised... I thought unconventional ships were really the roots of fanfic, and that therefore there would be more and better--I know my own thoughts and dissatisfaction with writing S/B lately seem to be stemming from seeing the fantasy start to play on screen without much wiggle room. That 'forbidden fruit' syndrome pushes me to want what the screen tells me I can't have.

Sigh. But jodyorjen has found a rec for me that I'm off to read once I finish with responses here... I shall report back with great fanfare if it turns out to be a good one :-)

Willow/Giles? Let us know. Now I'm tempted to try it, except I'm sort of writing Ganya right now.

Re:
Ooooh, indeed. I found some, listed them in my lj, and by god, if ginmar will give it a go, I will be much with the slavish devotion, I swear.

Addiction was decent, not great, but decent. Better than most of what I've been finding. Worth reading if you're dying for W/G, but only then.
