Tutor (3/7)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Tutor

Title: Tutor
Author: Holly
Setting: Season 4, shortly after Something Blue
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28k, complete
Special Thanks: bewildeNiamhBehind Blue Eyes for betaing, teragramm for the awesome banner.
Summary: Buffy has a certain set of skills: staking vampires, slaying demons, preventing the apocalypse, and chasing off men after a single night. That last thing could stand being crossed off her list. Fortunately, she knows just the man—err, vamp—to help.
Note: I’ll be posting the first three parts today and the following parts on EF and AO3.

Won’t make much sense without having read Chapter One and Chapter Two. :)

Enemies with Benefits (School Hard) banners

Title: Enemies with Benefits (School Hard) banners
Creator: Double Dutchess
Form: banner
Rating: safe for work

My first contribution for today! Three “Enemies with Benefits” banners. The first is a slightly improved version of my banner #10 from the banner contest (you always see the flaws when it’s too late :-) and the second is a blue background version of the same banner. The third is a different banner based on the same idea. I could only submit one of the three to the banner contest and decided on the first one, but I’m curious to hear if you think I made the right choice.

Fic: A Guy Can Dream

Title: A Guy Can Dream
Author:the_wiggins
Era/season/setting: season 6
Rating: M
Author’s note: I’ve been working on an original (well, Norse-mythology inspired) novel. So I haven’t had much time for fanfic. This weird little story is what happens when I try to shift gears, I guess.
The story was a little rushed and is unbeta’d. Please let me know if you see anything that feels weird or OOC! I’m gonna edit it again before posting to other sites, so all kinds of feedback welcome. :) Oh, and the title’s the best I could think of at the moment, but I’m not really happy with it. So if anyone has any other suggestions, I’m happy to hear them!

Customize your own Playmobil® Spuffy – a DIY tutorial

Title: Customize your own playmobil Spuffy – a DIY tutorial
Creator: flowspuffy

I have seen regular or customized Funko Pop Spuffy and also customized Lego Spuffy but I haven’t come across Playmobil Spuffy yet. Playmobil is a huge thing for kids here in Germany, about as huge as Lego is. There are some kids who are either Lego-kids or Playmobil-kids but my little one generously plays with both and has the equivalent of a small toy department’s warehouse stored in his room. However, for this tutorial, I only used one Lochaber axe out of his stock and it was given freely to me. I bought the rest of the figurines from various sellers on eBay local. I am sorry to have to admit that at least one figurine and also a kitchen knife were severely harmed during the process. We all know Buffy is a complex character. I needed three different figurines to create a remote likeness.

Hello everyone! A little late, I know, but here I am. As always I have to catch up but how are you? A big hug for you and your family, it’s difficult for many and this, well, they’re icons and it’s distracting me so if you’re having a very bad time I hope this helps to distract you for a while. You do it with me too, all the time you write, all the time you do something, thanks for being there. <3

A/N: I finished this story quite some time ago but have been putting off posting.  I’m sorry to say it doesn’t much fit this round’s theme.  Rather, I was giving myself a deadline so I had to start posting.  It’s quite a long story, ~150,000 words, and I’ll continue posting to the usual places (AO3, ff.net, and Elysian Fields).  Thanks to stallwartsandall and MiseEnPlace for the very helpful beta work!  I revise somewhat obsessively, sometimes adding new mistakes after beta-ing, so if you catch anything lmk.

13 Icons

I think it’s my day – so if I am wrong, sorry!

I had actually made 40 icons over the last couple of weeks, however when I turned on my lap-top late last night to upload them, I found the lap-top totally dead. So I have been busy today … I hope that these are OK!

Here are 3 teasers –

The 13 are here at my journal

Thanks again to all the mods for their hard work.
