FIC: Biding Time

Title: Biding Time
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Buffy/Spike
Rating / Words: PG / 1800 words
Warnings: mpreg
Summary: In which the world is still ended, Spike is still pregnant, and he and Buffy are still feeling their way through the idea. Set in my post-apocalyptic shanshu!Spike/Buffy mpreg 'verse.

A/N: And lo! an errant Spuffy fic appears! Apparently I had one more fic from this 'verse in me - or on my hard drive, rather. I never posted any of it because I thought I was going to write a lot more, but I don't expect that to happen now, and shuffling the vignettes around has yielded something that approximates a fic. So here it is.

SS1, SD in the beginning

the real question is, which one is Buffy?

I have concluded that for me, Sam-and-Dean is the Spuffy of SPN fandom. That is, I adore the characters and the relationship, I read tons of the fic, but there's so much already out there that I feel very little inspiration to write any myself. Whatever I could possibly have to say has already been said, and I find it stifling to try to write in that environment.

So instead, in SPN I'm all about writing the rare pairs - with no romantic OTP, I am so much more adventurous with shipping than I was in Buffy fandom - and the minor characters.

Which isn't to say that I don't like or never write Sam or Dean! It's just, what I write of their relationship mostly comes not from fic specifically focused on them, but from the fact that Sam is always oriented around Dean, and Dean is always oriented around Sam, regardless of who else happens to be in the fic.

Fanpoem: you make it with your hands

Title: you make it with your hands
S6 Spike/Buffy fanpoetry (free verse), suicide ideation, rated PG-13 for thematic elements

A/N: For upupa_epops' Multi-Fandom Adult Theme Comment Ficathon for plural_entity's prompt of Buffy Summers and an excerpt from Sylvia Plath's "Lady Lazarus." Because obviously the thing to do in response is to invite comparisons between my poetry vs. Sylvia Plath's.

There's a part here that I like, and I have zero perspective on the rest of it. Am posting before I lose the nerve. Dedicated a little bit to quinara, for whom I keep wanting to write fanpoetry.

Fic post!

Over at [community profile] seasonal_spuffy, I have just posted And Take My Waking Slow, the latest installment in the post-apocalyptic Spuffy 'verse. This is the prequelest of the prequels, so no prior knowledge of the 'verse required. Also, it means no mpreg, which I know will please some of you. *g*

I have posted on my day and everything. Yay me. I'm very glad my posting day was not last week like I thought it was.

Also, this makes four fic-like things posted in the last month. And all very different things! This is the most productive I've been in ages.

Much Spuffy and one Wes-and-Faith thing. In particular, much Spuffy by brutti_ma_buoni or from sb_fag_ends or both, which between them are the sources for something like 75% of all the Buffyverse fic I've read recently.

Also, a note: it occurred to me that it's weird for me as a mod over at seasonal_spuffy to single out particular fics from the comm, but I urge all you Spuffy-inclined folk to check out the masterlist of our last session, if you haven't already. There's some excellent stuff there, as usual.

Let's put this out there first, so it doesn't get lost in with the Spuffy:
A Witness to See the Mess I've Made, by ever_neutral
Faith, Wes; mid-Ats S4
This is a lovely fill-in-the-blanks fic of Faith's time with Wes as they try to stop the LA apocalypse. The voices are excellent all the way through, and it adds up to quite a satisfying character study.

Take Five, Everybody, by [personal profile] stultiloquentia
Spike/Buffy; post-NFA; NC-17
So much fic about this ship assumes that they enjoy a transcendent, glorious sex life, for which, if they (and by 'they' we mean 'Buffy') have any brains at all, they shuck friendships, responsibilities, and innermost convictions. Bleah. This, on the other hand, is about a relationship that may finally be coming together into something workable and also about the awkward sex that comes with. Wonderful for the voices and the awkwardness, emotional and physical, that feels real instead of fantastic.

This Wanton World-verse, by Eurydice
Spike/Buffy; AU; NC-17
The single most imaginative thing Eurydice has done, IMO, this is a joyous remixing of Buffyverse elements. Buffy's the Slayer, Ethan Rayne is her keeper and de facto watcher, the Slayer line's gone wonky, and Spike is a vamp hired by the Council to fix it. One dead Slayer, coming up. This gets pretty dark in places, but watching all the different elements come together is worth it.

Green Card 'verse, by brutti_ma_buoni
Spike/Buffy; AU S4
In which the Initiative is much scarier, Spike's chip is much more useful to our heroes, and Buffy marries him to protect him from the folks who want him back. The premise is pure crack, but B_m_B is doing wonders with it so far. I love the quiet, awkward fledgling friendship that's developing between Spike and Buffy and how it's trying hard to be something more besides both their efforts. Also, it has them being civil to one another, which it turns out is a favorite thing of mine. (I know you are all shocked.)

Everything Would Be What It Wasn't, by smells_corrupt
Spike/Buffy; early-season AU
The world is falling to pieces, and our heroes need allies, even if the ally is Spike, who's only around to keep an eye on his newly-ensoulled girlfriend. These are the bare sketchings of a truly fascinating premise, and chock-full of our favorite secondary characters as well. I only wish there was more of it.

For a Certain Value of Real, by brutti_ma_buoni
Spike/Buffy; post-NFA
When Buffy finally finds Spike after the big battle, he can tell she isn't alive. But, it turns out, neither is she dead. This is one of the weirder Spuffy premises I've ever seen and beautifully executed.

Anya final stand, S7

(no subject)

A few months ago, hello_spikey said, "Hey, do you want to beta some Spuffy for me?" And I said, "Are bears Catholic?" (Or something like that.) And thus all this time I have been reading her glorious S6 post-Entropy fluff (no, really!) and trying to keep it to myself, because really, how annoying are those people that say, "I'm betaing the best thing ever but you can't read it yet, ha ha"?

Except now you can! It is The Perils of the Self-Domesticating Vampire, all parts here, with daily updates at her journal. In which Spike's approach to the Entropy fallout is, ah, a bit more matrimonial in nature. Guaranteed to make you go AWWWW.

mood Christmas

FIC: Things Done in the Name of War

Title: Things Done in the Name of War
Fandoms: BtVS/Potterverse crossover
Characters: Severus Snape, Spike/Buffy
Words / Rating: 2000 words, in drabbles / G
Setting: Vaguely post-NFA, sometime prior to or early into the HP series
Warnings: mpreg

A/N: This is utter crack, y'all, and it is NOT MY FAULT. It is the fault of diamondtook862 and ever_neutral, whose Christmas fic it is. First we have the Snape-Spike mpreg baby. WHUT. Then we have the fact that my knowledge of the Potterverse comes from a book and a half, two movies, a fair bit of wildly AU fanfic, and the glory of fannish osmosis. Oh, yeah, and if one is going to write utter crack, then one might as well write it in DRABBLES, amirite? (Also, when one is writing crack: choose a sufficiently pretentious title.)

bobthemole kindly did an HP canon check on the first half of this, but she should in no way be held responsible for the - did I mention? - utter crack.
