b/g - in the library

Fic: The New Men (or, A Present from Ethan) Giles/Wes/Xander

Title: The New Men (or, A Present from Ethan)
Pairing: Giles/Wesley/Xander
Rating/Warnings: R, a kind of drug use
Summary/Notes: 4th season BtVS. What would have happened if Wesley had been along on the demon hunting trip in “A New Man” instead of Willow? What if Ethan had felt less like turning Giles into a monster instead did something more… mischievous? Written for maleslashminis and in particular mireille719 who requested Giles/Wes/ (with the third as either Xander or Ethan) and books. Sorry Mir, Ethan popped in, but then kind of ran away after he'd set his plan in motion. Silly man. Also, some lines taken directly from "A New Man"

Final note: ok, so I accidentally didn't get this as finished as I wanted ... and now I've got two papers that have to take priority. So, the ending... is not quite an ending. In other words, there will be a companion piece to this in the very near future.
Disclaimer: Joss is fairly fabulous, and you can tell I'm not exactly him, I just like to play with his boys from time to time.
Feedback: Welcomed and appreciated. Concrit is valued as well, although preferred in an email.
Thanks: To both elizabuffy and lostgirlslair who betaed this at the last last last minute. All corrections are theirs, all remaining mistakes are mine.

ok, the update, for real this time

So, guess what's really been occupying my time - the last week of school!  Yep, this week is actually finals week, and here on the first day of said finals week I have spent 6 hours at a coffee shop working on my papers.

Of course, there's still *tons* to go.  But the to do list looks really small:

  • 20 page Mass & Pop Culture paper (due Wed)
  • 10-15 page Core Readings paper (due Thu)
  • Japanese comprehensive final (Fri morning)
Just three things, should be easy, right?  BWAHAHA.

I've decided to cave and create myself a couple of meters, so you guys are going to be forced to look at them....

Mass and Pop Culture Paper
Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
3,500 / 6,000

Core Readings Paper
Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
1,000 / 3,000

It's not so bad, right? But the hours and minutes are slipping by. And there's no such thing as a meter for Japanese studying, I don't think.  The plan tonight is to watch some Heroes, then head right back in and try and get the rough M&C Paper completed.  I'm halfway done so it's not that bad, right?  And then spend another 6 hours at the coffee shop tomorrow, working on rewriting/editing of the thing, and finishing the Core Readings paper.  I think I'm actually in better shape than I was last semester, thank goodness.  Not by much, but hey, baby steps are baby steps.  Wish me luck!
