Sweet Surrender (gifs)

Title: Sweet Surrender (gifs)
Creator: Double Dutchess
Form: other art
Era: S3, S5, S6, S7
Rating: possibly not quite safe for work

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”.

Sunrise manips

Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Title: Sunrise manips
Setting: The first screencap is, I believe, of Spike right before he says, “So you’ll give me what I want. Make me what I was. So Buffy can get what she deserves.” But I think it looks similar to Spike in the final scene of “Intervention” too, and upon reflection I don’t mind. The second screencap is of Buffy as she’s about to say, “What you did, for me, and Dawn … that was real.”

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.

Fic: Faithful Will (Part 1 of 3)

banner shows Buffy with a sword, Spike smiling in her general direction, fairytale castle

Title: Faithful Will
Author: the_wiggins
Rating: PG
Era/Season/Setting: Once Upon A Time (or maybe Season 5)
Warnings: Some Buffy/Riley.
Author’s Note: OK, so here’s the fusion fic no one ever asked for: BtVS with the very obscure Grimm’s fairy tale (at least, I’d never heard of it) “Faithful John.”
This originated in an extended brainstorming session with thenewbuzwuzz, so I owe them a lot of credit for the inspiration. But of course, anything that is weird or doesn’t quite work is probably my fault. Buzwuzz is also responsible for the lovely banner and for the last-minute beta, so applause and confetti for them!

Fic: Apology for Declining an Invitation to Dine (Part 1 of 2)

It is technically still the 23rd here in California, so I’m coming in under the wire for my second posting day. I had all these plans about the one-shot I wanted to post today, but, as it happens, things didn’t work out the way I wanted. So, what I’ve got is the first half of the one-shot. I’m going to post the second half on Sunday’s Free-for-all Day.

But to make up for only having half of this now, I have a little treat at the end.

Title: Apology for Declining an Invitation to Dine
Author: Eurydice
Era/season/setting: S5, set immediately after my story, Charms of the Clarion
Rating: R
Author’s Note: The one thing I get comments on the most, even after all these years, is the chocolate sauce story from Charms of the Clarion. Way back in the day (I wrote/posted it in January-May 2003; gah, I’m old), I deliberately chose to fade to black at the end as Spike was telling Buffy what happened, because I figured that anything I came up with wouldn’t be nearly as good as what the reader might imagine. They had a tendency to disagree with me, so the requests for the chocolate sauce story have come in like clockwork ever since. Since this is a special anniversary for Seasonal Spuffy, I decided to get it out there, once and for all.

In the original spirit of Charms, the title is courtesy of Robert Burns.

Yes, here I’m again! I wanted to share a wallpaper I made for this round, I skipped the standard format because I adjusted it to my preferences but I think there will be no problems with that. I’ve never made one to share so I hope you like it. Well now I see here and I think it was a little dark, maybe I should increase the light a bit. Btw, here are those banners for the round too and some icons. If you want any let me know, I don’t have any problem if you want to customize. *hugs*

Happy Anniversary! Omg how old am I?

First of all, happy anniversary to everyone! Omg fifteen years! I know it’s a difficult year but you are in the right place. You could travel back in time with those posts and relive it all again, the effort you dedicated, all your creative work, every message of support, all that fun we share every round, there’s so much love around, you have been extraordinary. I really believe it, thank you so much I think after all, we’ve been immensely happy here and I can only be grateful.

And of course if you have been going backwards in that great orgy full of love, happy 20th anniversary of Fool for Love too! It’s a perfect time to stop for a moment because we only had one episode like this in the whole show and we can’t let it go so fast. Please don’t get me wrong, I love too many episodes for different reasons, I can’t decide which one I prefer, I have a natural tendency to contradict myself but maybe it’s the exception. I didn’t have time yesterday but it’s my posting day and I’m going to take advantage of it. Yes please, you can do it with me right here. After all, you actually do it all the time. In fact, I think we have been talking about Fool for Love for years without thinking it. So under the cut I will not try to wash your mind, it’s not necessary, we’ve been doing it ever since we saw it.

Two Spuffy Drawings

Title: Two Spuffy Drawings
Creator: Fra_Apples (MaggieLaFey)
Warnings: One of the two is slightly NSFW.

Hello all!
I’ve recently practiced with a bit of drawing and of course I chose Spuffy as my subject. I hope you like the results, and yes, I do consider them complete even though some parts may seem unfinished… I can only copy pictures when I draw, and in this case the original pics were just a bit too shadowy. (*coff coff* Buffy’s hand *coff coff*)
I apologise if the picture quality isn’t ideal but I hope you can still like them! And if you feel like it isn’t NSFW please let me know and I’ll remove the warning.
Last but not least: I ALWAYS love and welcome critiques and tips to improve. If you have any, do feel free to let me know :) and if you feel like suggesting scenes/pictures to draw, suggest away!

Fic: Calliope Unsheathed – Chapter Three

Title: Calliope Unsheathed
Author: eurydice72
Era/season/setting: Set between S4 and S5, canon divergent AU
Rating: Eventually NC17, but only R for language and violence for what gets posted here
Summary: When a carnival comes to town, Spike gets wind of a plot that doesn’t sound good for Sunnydale…or the Slayer.
Warnings: None
Author’s Note: Thank goodness for free-for-all days! I meant to get this up last night, but time is not my friend right now.

Fic: Calliope Unsheathed – Chapter Two

Title: Calliope Unsheathed
Author: eurydice72

Rating: Eventually NC17, but only R for language and violence for what gets posted here
Summary: When a carnival comes to town, Spike gets wind of a plot that doesn’t sound good for Sunnydale…or the Slayer.
Warnings: None
Author’s Note: This is my first Seasonal Spuffy in YEARS so to say I’m nervous is an understatement. I went for something comfortable for me which means adventure time for Spike and Buffy. I had originally hoped to have five chapters to post today, but it looks like it’s only going to be three at most. Those will come later today. My outline for this puts it at 12 chapters, though I reserve the right to have that change if the story decides to take its own path. :)
