Dispute

DisputeGiles had confronted Dawn over Xander's unfortunate new skin condition, but found her response disingenuous to say the least.

"Those books are dangerous. Anything could have happened." He gave her his sternest look in the hope of conveying the seriousness of the situation.

Dawn snorted. "Don't be so pedantic. The only thing that could have gone wrong was the spell failing. And besides, Xander has been politeness itself to Spike and Anya, so it was worth it."

Sighing, Giles had to agree that she had a point. "I'd prefer you avoided magic." He had enough on his hands with Willow.

Alas, poor Giles! But *giggle* I take it the paisley spell worked on unfortunate Xander, then?

It is a fine line he walks. Spike and Dawn shouldn't be playing with curses, but Xander shouldn't be behaving like an arse either.

But only to Anya. And Andrew, but he isn't in this !verse.

I'm glad that Dawn was able to make Giles see things from her point of view. Xander definitely deserved that paisley skin curse.

Xander does deserve a visible lesson in how to behave. Happy you enjoyed.
