This piece is based on one of my favorite songs. I can’t help but think of Spike and Buffy and how their journey has been so powerfully influenced by their love relationships. Thanks to all who have looked at my works – Much appreciated. Again, Thanks to all who created all these wonderful works for the Spuffy fans to enjoy. The song is White Flag by Dido written by Dido Armstrong, Richard W. Jr. Nowels and Rollo Armstrong.
Here are my last two submissions for this Seasonal Spuffy round – Hope you all are having a wonderful day of Remembrance for those we have Loved and Lost this Memorial Day. Thanks for keeping the Spuffyverse strong and active to help get us through all the times of troubles in our lives. Like Buffy and Spike – we can always change our paths and that we can gain strength for all our hard life lessons. Love on this Memorial Day.
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…
Last submission for today – In advance, thanks for checking out my work and Best Wishes to all our Spuffy friends during these tragic times of Covid-19. Love, Peace and Life Blessings to all of you.
The theme of “benefits” works so well with these two characters – so much pain and suffering with all their sexual dysfunctional relationship to contrast with the spiritual and emotional growth that they brought to each other.
Thanks to everyone involved in this latest Seasonal Spuffy round – wonderful artwork and stories for all the Spuffy lovers to enjoy. Thank You all very much.
I worked on a few pieces trying to use the Frineds With Benefits theme – excellent choice of theme. I will post three of them today and some others for the final Free Day. Hope you like them.
Title: Enemies with Benefits (School Hard) banners
Creator: Double Dutchess
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.
Title: Enemies with Benefits #1, #2, #3, Comics SF, A Many Pictured Thing
For my post, I have below the cut, 5 banners, and 6 icons.
If you would like a banner personalized or resized, just ask! Enjoy!
1. Enemies with Benefits #1
Many thanks everybody for your lovely reactions to my little Spiffy story from Monday! Here’s a little bonus for free-for-all day.
To all our USA friends – wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and for all our non USA Spuffy friends – hope you have a lovely day. It’s not a Spuffy Thanksgiving without a tribute to PANGS. I’ll watch Pangs today while I work on my current painting – perfect way to spend some of my Thanksgiving Day. Link for a current looking back review of Pangs https://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3593830/revisiting-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-thanksgiving-episode-pangs/
Pangs comes in #18 this year in the WIRED Best Ever Thanksgiving Day episodes – https://www.wired.com/story/best-thanksgiving-tv-episodes/
Can’t go by without posting something for Thanksgiving Day – I have so many things to be thankful for this year but especially my good health and recovery. Some of my best Spuffy friends know I had breast cancer surgery few months ago and I’ve had awesome great results – So this is a very special celebration this year. To all my Spuffy friends and all those who participate in Seasonal Spuffy – thank you for all the wonderful years of stories, artwork and vids and Spuffy Fan Love. Plus, another super nice Thanks is for our lovely Thanksgiving Day snow – I love when we get snow as it does not happen often here in Abq.
Fan Love indeed – got these great stamps when I sent for some Buffy Stamps – wanted to share them so I kept this simple.
Hello, all! This is my first time participating in Seasonal Spuffy! And I am LATE. Wooo. My internet service isn’t working right now, so I’m throwing this post up here via mobile several minutes after my posting day. I hope that’s…kind of fine. I did try swearing at my laptop, but it didn’t help. I’ll try fixing tags etc. once I can log in on my laptop. Mobile keeps trying to eat this post!
My meager offering for you: a banner, a title, and a writing challenge prompt thingy. Totally up for grabs. Let me know if you’d like the banner personalized!
My last submission. A Great Man of Letters idea – William and Spike would have had the highest regard and love for Shakespheare. I can imagine Spike reading the poetry and plays to Buffy. I have featured the Max Reinhardt 1927 film production. You can listen to the play at the great Folger Shakespheare Library https://www.folger.edu/midsummer-nights-dream-audio-edition
Been working with one of my favorite manip formats – Faux Covers. This one features Buffy & Spike as a Spuffy version of Nick and Nora Charles by Samuel Dashiell Hammett. Still wishing someone would take up a project of creating Spuffy Nick & Nora story.
Sorry I’m so late with post – had to be gone most of the day. Working with the theme of Love Letters thought I would use the awesome Royal Mail 400 Anniversary Shakespeare Stamps – Hope you like and as always – my great big Thank You to all the mods and participants who keep Spuffy and Seasonal Spuffy a strong and wonderful fan community for all the fans to enjoy.
It’s my day! o/
