Buffy fanfiction: GILES' HAIRY FIT

Inspired by my daughter; maybe I should have let her read it, first?

Poor Giles just never gets a break ...





Giles, his eyes bugging out, shoved his glasses on. “My Lord, what have you done?”

The girls stopped chattering and stood still, having naively expected a more positive reaction. “This is our first real patrol since we got to Chicago,” Rona explained. “We thought we should do something to mark the occasion.”

“Mark the occasion?” Giles shook his head. “Rona, you have a sacred calling. There’s no time for this kind of ... shenanigans.”

“We didn’t think it would be a problem,” Vi said in a small voice.

“Really.” Giles stalked across the gym, examining each in turn. Rona’s hair was now pure white, contrasting wildly with her chocolate skin, but she looked the most normal. Chao-Ahn’s was a bright yellow. Vi’s was a shocking pink. “You didn’t think this would be a problem? The vampires will bloody well see you coming from the other side of the cemetery!”

“Maybe that will attract them,” suggested Kara, whose formerly brown hair had become orange. “Like a fishing lure.”

“Like a --” Giles’ face also turned color, to an alarming shade of scarlet. “Robin won’t be willing to even take you out, looking like that.” Giles whirled around to march toward the door, but stopped short when Robin walked in.

“Is the Hair Patrol ready to go?” Robin asked with a grin.

His hairless scalp was striped blue. Electric blue.

“We look like a team, now.” Robin swept past a gaping Giles, then opened the weapons cabinet. “Choose your poison, group. Giles, we’ll be back by dawn -- give or take a hair.”

Ah, the Hair Bear Bunch; more proof that the Hollywood people working on Saturday morning cartoons did a lot of drugs ...

Not only do I like it, but I'd like to walk down the street with you so I could scope out everyone's reaction. :-)

The story came after my daughter put some temporary die on her hair; it came out very similar to the blue in your picture, but washed out in about a week. She could only put temporary on, because her Middle School wouldn't allow "unnatural" hair colorings.

that's lame (about the school), but i am not surprised. when i was at CN they banned wearing your coat in the building unless it was before school or after school hours. but you could still take your backpack to class.

good thing i kept all my weapons in my backpack. *rolls eyes*

i would recommend manic panic brand of dye for a 3 month-ish color duration, bleaching first of course. maybe a summer thing? :p

i happen to think blue looks better on me than my natural color. if i wasn't kindasorta looking for a job right now i'd totally dye it. and get my lip pierced. and another eyebrow piercing.

*sigh* i miss college.

coated with weapons
EN bans both wearing a coat in the building and taking backpacks to class, now. I'm afraid I'd have to sue for blanket coverage -- I froze my buns off for all four years at Central Noble. I'd have died of hypothermia without my CN music jacket.

Anyway, Jillian's in high school now, and so could color her hair if she chose. It all depends on how much of a heart attack she wants to give her mother.

Are we talking literal color or figurative?

Very funny! (And I'm wondering what your daughter did to inspire it....)

What will Giles do they day each of them comes home with mehndi (henna) tattoos all over their hands - or nasal piercings?

inspiration
She just colored her hair, is all; a not very natural color (it was a kind of burgundy, as I recall), but temporary.

Considering the number of new girls, sooner or later Giles is bound to run into one who rubs him even more the wrong way than Buffy did, at first. In fact, one or two tattoos might be a good addition to the character Jillian and I are working on right now ...
