ANGEL: I know this is hard.
FAITH: You're a vampire.
SPIKE: Was. And as soon as I get this chip out of my head, I'll be a vampire again. But until then, I'm just as helpless as a kitten up a tree. So why don't you sod off?
FAITH: Okay.
SPIKE: Oh, fine! Throw it in my face! Spike's not a threat anymore, I'll turn my back! He can't hurt me.
FAITH: Spike? Spike. William the Bloody with a chip in his head. I kind of love this town.
SPIKE: You know why I really hate you, Summers?
FAITH: 'Cause I'm a stuck-up tight-ass with no sense of fun?
SPIKE: Well . . . Yeah, that covers a lot of it.

TARA: of course you want to bring your mother back, and I wish we could, but it's not possible.

DAWN: Why? You guys do magic for all kinds of things.

WILLOW: We do, but...

TARA: This is different. Magic can't be used to alter the natural order of things.

DAWN: But all you do is mess with the natural order of things. You make things float & dissappear and...

TARA: But we don't mess with life and death. Dawn.. I know how bad you hurt...

DAWN: You don't. They put her in the ground!

My brain is dangerous.  Well, at least for my weight.  :-p  I was enjoying a bit of feta cheese with some crackers earlier and the thought occurred to me that a red onion, egg and feta cheese tart would be very tasty.  Especially if I added just a smidge of nutmeg to the red onions while I was caramelizing them before putting them into the tart shell and pouring the eggs over them.  The crumbled feta cheese with chopped walnuts would go on top before baking, and then a balsamic vinegar and honey glazed would be dribbled over the top before serving with a nice glass of Malbec or Beuajolais and a side salad of field greens and arugula with a light oil and red wine vinegar dressing.  

Yeah, like I said, my brain is a dangerous thing.

Edited to add: or maybe I should make the crust with whole wheat flour and walnut meal?  That actually sounds better.

It’s been another banner week here at Summer of Giles! On the visual arts front, we have a lovely portrait of Giles and video highlighting Giles and Dawn’s relationship. In fic, we’ve been taken along Giles’ extremely dark and self destructive path during his time running around London, and we’ve also experienced a mundane day in the life of a Watcher posted on the Hellmouth. We also had an update to the post-Chosen “Ripper” story, experienced hijinx when Giles and Willow’s iPhones decided to get married, and were treated to the conclusion of Part IV of the Sanctuary Series titled Labyrinth.

Please remember to leave love and comments for our content creators. Feedback has been very sparse this year and everyone has worked so hard to make Summer of Giles a fun and wonderful experience this summer. So please, read, view, and show your appreciation.

And lastly, authors and artists, please remember to tag your entries.

Like most folks these days, I periodically go through and delete all of the cookies, browser history and cached temporary internet crap on my computer.  I have done so for decades, just to keep all of the crap from bogging down my processor.  Now, imagine my surprise when the cookies and tracking databases kept cropping back up after deleting them using the commands in the browser's preferences, even when I haven't visited the sites they're from in days.  Okay, not a problem, I quit the browser, went to the specific location folders on my hard drive and deleted all of the crap manually, then restarted my computer.

Nope, that didn't work either, the cookies and database trackers kept showing up in the browser, no matter how many times I deleted them using the commands in the browser preferences, but they're not showing up in the computer's system folders.  What the ever loving...?!?!  So, I did a search and found out that this is now a common problem and it doesn't matter if you're using a Microsoft OS or an Apple OS.  I don't know if the problem extends back to older web browsers, or if it's just the newly updated ones, but I'd really like to know.  

So, I did another web search and researched specifically how to get rid of cookies and trackers on an Apple running the most recent updates, just in case.  Okay, I had already done most of that, but figured I'd do it again with the thing I didn't think of.  I did everything as directed then shut down my computer (again) and even completely unplugged my modem/router for a half hour to make sure that the IP address would reset (my ISP uses dynamic IPs).  I reconnected the modem and let it do its thing, fired up the computer, brought up the browser...and the cookies/database trackers are still there.  They're not showing up in the system folders from which I deleted them, but they're still in the browser.  Seriously, what the ever loving, bloody blue blazing FUCK is going on?!

Lastly, I put a call in to Apple's tech support and the supervisor I spoke with doesn't have a clue either (the regular tech sure as hells didn't), so he's sending a ticket to the software engineers to see what they can do to fix the problem.  He's supposed to call me back Wednesday and I'll make a post then to update.

*is a seriously unhappy camper* 

UPDATE: I wound up uninstalling and deleting Adobe Flash Player and going through and manually deleting every file associated with it in Library/Preferences/Macromedia, including the Flash folder.  I also went into Library and deleted everything in the Cookies folder, then went into Library/Safari and deleted everything in the Database and Local Storage folders.  I left all of the main folders, except for the above stated Flash folder.  That seems to have worked and my laptop hasn't blown up yet, so I'll see if this works.  

The browser is supposed to be able to clear all of that crap, but it fails miserably and the add blocking and virus software seem to ignore database tracking and cookies.  I guess going in and doing all of this manually is going to have to be a regular thing if I want to keep that crap off of my computer.  >:-(  I also will definitely be letting the tech support supervisor know what I think of their software browser not clearing that crap like it is supposed to do.

Title: Labyrinth
Author: [ profile] darkheartwalsh
Rating: FRAO
Setting: Several years post-Chosen, no comics
Pairing: Giles/Buffy
Word Count: Approx 9,500
Warnings: Mild kink, explicit sex (you know the drill…)

A/N: The continuing saga of the PWP that ran away and developed some semblance of a plot.

Thank you very much to [personal profile] dragonyphoenix, who was kind enough to swap posting days with me after my catastrophic technical failure last week.

It's an AO3 only link today (apologies), as DW is buggering around with formatting. Urgh.

These are the concluding chapters (3 and 4) of Part IV in the Sanctuary Series. You can find the other parts of this series linked below.

PART I – Sanctuary
PART II – Anchor
PART III – Confluence
PART IV - Labyrinth (chp. 1+2)

Dating is a minefield. And that’s just when you’re single, nevermind in a definitely-not-a-relationship with a man who might technically be your boss.

If Buffy were a betting woman, she’d put money on Giles being jealous. But she isn’t, and he’s definitely not.


PART IV – Labyrinth
