A/N: Written as a fill on Comment_Fic for Leni_Ba who prompted "any Whedonverse. any. Too young for this."

The woman at the GameStop refuses to make the sale with Giles until she gets approval from his "mother."

Buffy's eyes go huge in pain and panic, her mouth goldfishes indignantly but no real words make their way out between the jumble of orphaned syllables. Instead, she pets her hair frantically while Giles scowls with the humiliated rage of tweens across the globe and Spike, in a moment that codifies his place in Xander's and Dawn's and Willow's hearts and the Scooby Gang itself forever, manages to record nearly the whole exchange on his phone, Powers That Be bless him.
