I've missed reading fanfic. I might just continue this on after the month is over.
My criteria for my recs? That it's recent and complete. I've been scanning over the new stories posted daily for preferred fandoms, but this was the first I marked to rec before I opted to focus on brand new or newly completed stories. It's from August. I couldn't resist.
Title:Dial V for Vampire
Characters: Rupert Giles, Joan Holloway, Edmund Giles, Betty Draper, Bert Cooper
Word Count: 1346
Warnings: Major Character Death
Summary: Giles has to train an unusual new Slayer. For one thing, she's an American.
Why I loved it: First off, it's Buffy and Mad Men. I mean, come on, how could I resist? Secondly, any time we get backstory on characters, like this view of Giles from his childhood (even if it's only a minor component of the fic), is wonderful. I loved how off-beat it was, and it made me chuckle more than once.
