For the previous solstice free-for-all I made a diorama of Buffy and Spike’s bedroom in the comics. Then it was Summer, now it is winter — so I decided to make a Christmas version. Here it is, with a Merry Christmas to all!

This is an entry I had planned but didn’t have time for during the last round of Seasonal Spuffy. It’s a gifset I made for my last buffyversebingo  prompt, “Surrender”.

Fool for Love: complicated gifs

Title: Fool for Love complicated gifs
Creator: Double Dutchess
Rating: all worksafe

So these gifs were originally meant for last week’s Fool for Love anniversary, but I didn’t make it before the deadline then. (And in fact, I didn’t quite make it before the deadline today either, but I reckon it’s close enough.)

I call them complicated (not just animated) gifs because I wanted to do something extra with them. As a result of their complicatednes, the first four gifs have pretty big file sizes, so they may take some time to load; my apologies for that. Only the last one is uncomplicated and relatively small in size.

Wallpaper and banners: shirtless woodcutter Spike (and fairy Buffy)

Title: Shirtless woodcutter Spike + fairy Buffy wallpaper and banners
Creator: Double Dutchess
Rating: all worksafe

Here is my prompt fill for justwriter2, who wanted shirtless woodcutter Spike. In my interpretation of the prompt, he meets wood fairy Buffy, who seems to have taken a shine to him. I’ve also made a banner, in a daytime and a nighttime version. Wallpaper and banners are customizable in case anyone is interested in that.

Wallpaper: Storyteller — Sleeping Beauty

Title: Storyteller: Sleeping Beauty (wallpaper)
Creator: Double Dutchess
Rating: worksafe

Oops, a little bit over time, but here it is: my main contribution for the day. This is already the third fourth Sleeping Beauty entry for this round, and like titti  I had the idea of making Spike the sleeper in this case. The full size of the wallpaper is 1920×1080, and you can see it in its full glory HERE.

I’ll be back on the free for all days with some more stuff!

Fairytales story banners

As my first post today, here’s a little warming-up in the form of some variations of the banners I made for this round’s banner poll. They are all 900 px wide.

The first banner has Spike as a loyal knight, offering his sword to Buffy. If anyone is interested in having this as a story banner, I’d be happy to customize it.

Buffy and Spike’s bedroom peep box

Title: Buffy and Spike’s bedroom peep box
Creator: Double Dutchess
Form: other art

Rating: safe for work

It’s lucky that it was (almost) the longest day today, because I needed all of it for the Spuffy project I got myself into! The original idea I had was to make a peep box (the shoe box kind) of Buffy and Spike in their bedroom from the comics; it ended up as a mix between a peep box and a cardboard model.

Manip: Beeped

Title: Beeped

Era: post-series

Note: based on a suggestion by flowspuffy! Also, inspired by SMG joking around on her instagram.

It’s early 2020. Buffy and Spike Summers-Pratt are happily married. He has shanshued; she has retired from slaying. Then they get a call…

Fic (kinda): It’s a great story, don’t

Title: It’s a great story, don’t
Author: GPT-2, with some small input from Double Dutchess
Season: all over the place
Word count: 1271 words
Rating: general audiences
Warning: Buffy/Other and some suggested Spike/Other
Note: What do you get when you try to let a neural network write Spuffy fan fiction? Here you see one of many possible results. Some highlights: Spike losing his virginity while on LSD; an upsetting Buffy/Spike kiss leads to Spike’s arrest; some Riley bashing for those who like that sort of thing; and Angelus owning a comics shop.

Vid: Please, please, please

Title: Please, please, please (let me get what I want)
Creator: Double Dutchess
Format: video
WARNING: contains clips from Seeing Red. Also, references to “Spike/Other”.

This is Spike’s very own “pity ditty”, set to a song by The Smiths. (A lovely song, but most importantly, a short one!)
Not related to the theme, but made specifically for this round of Seasonal Spuffy.

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.

Wallpaper: Quiet

My last entry for this round! Sorry for posting again so early, but it’s already 30 November where I am,and I don’t know if I’ll get the chance to post later today. And I need to do it today because again, this entry doubles as a fill for my buffyversebingo   card and this is the last day (and my last entry) to get my bingo!
Anyway, here it is. Nothing to do with Something Blue, but it is blue, so that also counts for something, right?

Gifs: Something Blue

With many thanks to thenewbuzwuzz, who pointed me the way to gifcam, I made these gifs made to celebrate the 20th years anniversary of Something Blue on Seasonal Spuffy, AND to fill the “pulse” prompt on my buffyversebingo card.Unfortunately I didn’t manage to figure out how to add text yet, otherwise the texts on the gifs in the third row would have been “Look at my poor neck. All bare and tender and exposed…” and “All that blood just… pumping away…”

Video/artwork: Biffy and Spikey

Welcome to the Biffyverse! Those of you who tuned in for this year’s summer_of_giles  already had a little preview.This video was inspired by Tribel from BuffyForums, who wanted a Miffy style fanvid. I had no time to make a fully animated video, so instead I tried to recreate the children’s picture book experience. The other inspiration was the “flavour” prompt on my card.

I hope you enjoy my little “Spiffy” picture story.
