Candy Man - Chapter 1

This is a re-post of my original story. After I posted it on Buffy/Gilest the first time I noticed a lot of mistakes, especially in the first chapter. I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at it to work on it, then the most unexpected thing happened. Someone nominated the story in round two of the bodice ripper awards. And even more unexpected, even with all the mistakes, I won an award!
So, here is the new, improved version that I feel is worthier of the award. There may still be mistakes, after all I am human, but I think that I fixed the worst of them.

Title: Candy Man (1/3)
Author: Gilesbabe
Pairing: Giles/Buffy
Rating: R - I think that’s too high, but better to be too high than too low and offend someone. A couple of naughty words. Making out and mention of partial nudity, but no detailed descriptions. Marital nudity mentioned, but no detailed descriptions.
Synopsis: Ripper turns Buffy's world upside down.
Alternate universe - that becomes pretty obvious
Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to the characters created by Joss Whedon and so beautifully portrayed by the actors, especially Anthony Stewart Head. I am making no profit from my story and no copyright infringement is intended.
Authors Notes: Escargoat was asking in her journal on if there have been any stories based on Band Candy with Giles/Buffy instead of Giles/Joyce. The point was stressed that to follow cannon there had to be either no sex because Buffy is still underage, or move the episode to after her 18th birthday. This story popped into my head.
I decided to go with same time frame in Season 3, so no sex, but plenty of kissing and touching. After all 17-year olds do that all the time, and Giles does know that she is no longer a virgin. (g) Fair warning, there is ick factor. I made it Joyce/Snyder. Hehehe.
The story diverges from the episode in Giles' apartment; just after he and Joyce got Buffy to leave.
