  • Jiles/Goyce & their relationship

    Okay I couldn't come up with a good name for them we have Bangel and Spuffy but there's no name for Giles and Joyce together. Anyhoo, what is your opinion on their relationship? I mean Giles was basically Buffy's surrogate father so it only made sense that Giles and Joyce would get together. Do you think it would've been better if they did get together as in, them being a couple? We only got to see a taste of what it would've been like in Band Candy. Granted they were both acting like teenagers but would they have been good together when they were back to being adults? Giles seemed to care for Joyce as we saw when Joyce was having all of her surgeries. I guess you could chalk it up to him just making sure Buffy was alright but then we see him instantly come over in The Body when Buffy calls him. I don't know. What are your thoughts on it. Should they have been a couple, why or why not? Did you like how they never fully went there in the show?

    Oh and if this needs to be moved go right ahead. I wasn't positive if this was a general discussion or Buffy type thread so I just put it here.

    Difficult, it's not that I'm against it.

    But it would have felt a little forced maybe ... There are two 'older' castmembers, let's ship them. It's a little bit like Kennedy and Willow ... we've got two lesbians, let's make them a couple. And I always believed that it would bother Buffy. She trusts Giles with things she wouldn't tell her parents. Besides in season 2, she wanted her parents to be together again, that probably changed with the destruction of Hank Summers. But in the early years; I don't think she would have liked it.

    But I don't know, it could be good ... it also could be really bad.

      Giles and Joyce pairing up seems something that the show would naturally exercise, since both characters are the positions of Buffy's parents; one's natural, one's surrogate. But this couple wouldn't last until death do them apart because the only thing they would feel bond over is their love for Buffy, they themselves don't have any actual passion for themselves. So even if they get into a relationship, they would not last too long.

        I think that it would of been good for buffy's sake, as she already has the strong bond with giles as hes he watcher and like a dad to her. But i dont think that theres a strong 'love' or even 'lust' connection between joyce and giles, i dont think their relationship would of had much spark to it, and if they got together it wouldnt really have any dramatic effects of the story line. such as buffy and angel, him losing his soul was the effect. Willow and Kennedy, willow turning into warren and kinda moving on over tara. Each relationship had an effect for moving the story 'plot' along, even parker did. So no i dont think it would of made any difference on whether they were together or not i think it would of been sorta like to 'convienent' if you get what i mean ? ... lol

          Ok so,

          How about Joyles??? I think that would be rather fitting.....ha ha. I would say that if Giles and Joyce were to get together that it may have made the whole thing awkward. Even though Buffy saw Giles as a father....I just can't imagine her being able to accept the fact that they were together. In some weird way it is like Giles belongs to Buffy and she gets uncomfortable evrytime that some one else gets close to him. I really think that it would have mucked the whole show up!! Just my opinion!!!

            Joss Whedon: And no, I never wanted Joyce and Giles to hook up romantically, but I did think it would be pretty funny if they had one night of drunken sex, of course the Band Candy episode lent itself perfectly to that.

            For the record, I didn't want them to hook up, either. Giles/Joyce squicks me, for some reason.

              Yeah Neither did I cuz thats would be just Strange IMO and I think that Buffy would just be irked even more than she was.

                I think them getting together would just be too tidy and lazy. Two attractive grown ups? Both single? Of COURSE they must get together.

                I did want Giles to date a bit more though. Come on, dud'es hot!

                  I always liked to see Giles and Joyce together. They were really good together and had very good chemistry.

                    You know I never realized they actually had sex until I watched "Earshot" for the eleventy-billionth time!!

                      Giles & Joyce?! :eek: NO!

                      Buffy desperately needs to be able to keep her "normal" life separate from her "professional" life. We all need a retreat, so even after Joyce knows Buff is the slayer, Buff has some place to escape, an identity besides "The Slayer."

                      Joyce & Giles together would mean that her only identity is "The Slayer", with no other meaning (in Buff's own eyes). We see some of this after Joyce dies and she has to protect Dawn. "Is that all I am?"

                      We all struggle to establish our own identities as individuals and Joyce and Giles together would just be too much! Also, too forced, as others have suggested.
