How I feel about this character: ♥ ♥ ♥

My unpopular opinion about this character: I don't think I have an opinion that is considered unpopular for him specifically?

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I wished we could have gotten more of the background antics and just more scenes in general with Giles and Ethan Rayne. I'm still sad that we never got that Ripper spin-off.

My het ship: Giles/Jenny Calender

My fem/slash ship: I don't have one, tbh.

My OTP: Giles/Jenny

My OT3: Idk

My non-romantic OTP: Giles/Buffy

My anti-ship: Giles/Spike

A headcanon fact: Initially, Giles couldn't fathom the notion of having children, fearing they would suffer the same fate he did, seeing that he comes from a family who have been joining the Watcher's Council for generations. From his rebellious stages to when he finally succumbed to his own fate there, his opinion on the subject remained the same. What Giles didn't count on was meeting his Slayer, Buffy Summers, and how much he longed for a daughter himself. Sure, she was quite a handful and didn't listen to him and made comments and references that he didn't always understand, and he felt frustrated with her at times, but he found himself to have grown an affection for the girl. He was her Watcher and he wasn't meant to become this attached to her, especially with his initial fear, but alas, he did. He was supposed to maintain a professional relationship with her as he was trained, but Giles wanted nothing more than to become the father figure in her life, to teach her, to prepare her for the hardships in life, but also protect her from them at the same time. This is why he was fired from being her Watcher in the third season. Watchers are meant to care for their charges, surely, but his fatherly love for her was so intense that they believed he would become a liability to the Council's "cause" of training a Slayer. It was, in that moment, that Giles decided that he hated everything the Council stood for, what they made him do which placed Buffy in danger, and made a promise to himself that no matter what happens, he would always be there to protect and guide Buffy, no matter what the cost.

(Sorry, I just have a lot of Buffy/Giles feels!)

A scene/moment that sums up this character: Going along with that, the moment in "Helpless" when Giles openly defies the Watcher's Council and actively intervenes with Buffy's test. He had lost Buffy's trust in that episode, and you can tell how horrible he felt because of it, and he much he realized that he cared about her well-being and hated lying to her, and how much he didn't care about losing his job just as long as Buffy was alright. Another moment in "Innocence" when Giles tells Buffy that he isn't disappointed in her for what happened with Angel (now Angelus), and that she will always have his support and respect. These two moments are, in my opinion, what sums up his character quite well.

An idea I have for the character that I haven't written: I like the notion of Giles always just head-butting with the Council on many things, but keeping his tongue because he knew of the repercussions, and he was trying to atone for his rebellious actions during his youth and not disgracing his family. I also like the idea that he was always meant to challenge the Council, and by doing so he managed to create his own family for himself with Buffy and the Scoobies. :)
