One More With Feeling (and another, and another…)

I have an art piece I was working on for this round, but it’s taking a lot longer than I expected. So instead, have a short one-shot from the Fancy Archives, and keep an eye out for that art during the solstice free-for-all!

Era/season/setting: Season 6

Summary: Buffy deals with Spike’s song in OMWF a little bit differently. AKA Spuffy, now with communication!

Fic: Glimpses [1 – 3 / ?]

Hi! *waves*
I didn’t sign up this time because I wasn’t sure if I was going to have something done until now, and I wasn’t so wrong. I didn’t write a word until – yeah, until Seasonal Spuffy started (YAY!) and really lured my muse out. It’s not much yet, but it’s a start, and since it’s now exactly (almost to the minute!) 1 year that I posted here for the first time, and its a Free-For-All day, I thought I should celebrate it with a post…

I’m afraid it’s not Spuffy yet. It will be eventually,

Also, due to my fickle muse waking up so late, it’s unbeta-ed. So, in case you find a mistake or any weird expression (not a native speaker, so it’s not unlikely…), please tell me.

Title: Glimpses
Author: freecat15
Era: Season 1 – 7 (these chapters: S1 and S2)
Rating: PG13
Summary: Glimpses into the story of a Slayer and a Vampire. A series of drabbles along the series, each of which can be read as stand-alone; sometimes two build a unit.
Word Count: 8 x 100  Continue Reading

Free for all day: blackout poems from shooting scripts

Good morning! *beams* It’s a beautiful day to ship Spuffy.

The idea: Because any Buffy script can be Spuffy if you read between the lines. ;)
Thanks: to the mods for making the whole thing happen; freecat15 for encouraging me; the absent tumblr user alightintheswamp for betaing the “Welcome to the Hellmouth” poem.
Explanations & excuses: The poems are NOT set during the episodes that the words are from. I’ve included text versions and two kinds of clickable image versions, so if you want you can try and read the classic blackout way, or look at where the words came from. I ignore capitalization for the text versions, and I messed with the unused parts of the text a little so that the images wouldn’t be too huge.
Rating Tagging NC-17 in case, for mentions of sex.
Medium: blackout poetry.
Other pairings: not intentionally. I’ve stretched the name “Will” to mean William the Bloody in one line, so if that doesn’t work for you, it’s a Willow/Buffy poem. I hope it does work for you.
Disclaimer: All the words were written by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt. I merely selected the ones I like best. The only pay I’m after is attention.

Fic: Blood

I still have a few more minutes left before free-for-all day is over? :D (In my time zone, anyway?)

Title: Blood

Medium: fic

Author/creator: tei_lj

Era/season/setting: A series of vignettes spanning pre-S1 (1994) to post-S6 (2006).

Rating: NC-17 for sex, violence, and, obviously, blood.

Word count: ~2800

Notes: So, this fic was inspired by an offhand remark made on the Female Gaze Podcast about how even in fanfic, let alone most canons, there isn’t enough acknowledgement of menstruation and how it would realistically affect characters’ lives. Menstruation, not Spuffy, is the main theme of this fic, but it is plenty Spuffy by volume ;)

Warnings: Uh, basically, if you think you are going to find this gross, you’re probably right.

Season 1 Drabbles (1/3)

Today is my and spikesdeb‘s day to post. In keeping with the theme “New Beginnings”, we decided to take each episode of Buffy and create a drabble that will incorporate our favorite vamp, Spike. (A huge undertaking, we know. I blame Debs, btw.) We’ve finished the first two seasons, so those will be posted here at the comm. The remaining seasons we’ll post in our respective ljs and update our last post with the links.

Mucho thanks to always_jbj  for lending an extra set of eyes.  Continue Reading
