Real citation: "From there we'd realise the Giles in the real world isn't actually the First, but a force of good, PTB?, that's using (a non-corporeal)Giles, his memories, etc, to help them - but he'll go when the First is defeated. Buffy has issues about this, later on of course she can't hug Giles to say good bye when he has to go - all sad, etc. The series ends on a similar tone it actually does, 'cause Giles is at peace and they know it (with Anya & Spike still dyingish)"

Made-up citation: "Maybe I'm not in a dyingish state exactly, but this fucking cough is screwing up my sleep and KILLING ME."
