Characters: Buffy, Giles, Spike

Giles and Spike had the potential for an "Odd Couple" kind of friendship in Season 4. What if their friendship actually developed so that Giles actually felt like a father to Spike? Buffy trusts Giles as a father, so his approval of Spike will definitely affect her perspective.

 Start by rewriting Hush, without Olivia, and take things from there. Make sure you spend as much time on the friendship as much as Spike and Buffy's relationship. Have fun with this one!

Summary: Giles and Spike are flatmates, until Olivia comes for a visit in Hush. What if this never happened and the two Brits lived together a bit longer? How would a relationship of fellow countrymen have evolved. And what influence could that have on our beloved Spuffy?
Lets find out.
