Pairing: Jenny Calendar / Rupert Giles
Fic Title: Distractions
Rating/Warning(s): PG, if even
Why This Must Be Read: Re-watch the early interactions between Giles and Jenny Calendar (up to "Dark Age") and you'll see what I mean when I say this should be your canon. dollsome nails vintage Giles, from his vague resentment at dealing with high school students who are not the Slayer to his general distrust of / disdain for all things electronic. Jenny's voice, too, is just as it should be--overly friendly but not over-sharing, honest and blunt. Moments like these become all the more precious when you remember that this was really the first ship wherein we witnessed one of Joss Whedon's better-known proclivities.
Special Rec: 14/35
