Blurb: (a long one...) Rupert Giles is a Watcher, one of the few who guide the vampire Slayers in hunting and killing vampires and demons, and fighting against the forces of darkness. In the battle against Twilight, Giles was killed. But after a chaotic resurrection attempt, he was restored to life; however... instead of being returned to the world as a grown man he is cursed to walk the earth as a teenager.

Recently, after a supernatural attack decimated San Francisco, the government has been cracking down on magical beings. Many, including Giles' friends, Buffy the Slayer, Wiccan Willow, and ensouled vampire Spike, have been sent to an internment camp called the "Safe Zone", while Giles was able to acquire a fake ID and - *sigh* - enroll in high school as a "normal" teenager.

If that wasn't difficult enough, while Buffy and her crew worked to save the world, Giles has some trouble of his own to handle... a girl... and so much more than that...
