Title: Now Might Be A Good Time For Something Heroic
Era/season/setting: Season 5
Notes: Two years ago I made a Playmobil Spuffy couple for Seasonal Spuffy. They lived happily on my bookshelf ever since but as of late, they have started complaining about the quietness of their lives. They really wanted to go out and fight some baddies. So, I gave them a Winnebago and some Knights of Byzantium and made a Playmobil stop motion film (with the invaluable assistance of both my sons who know more about Playmobil and video making than I do). I hope you enjoy it.
Title: Grace In This Creator: thenewbuzwuzz Rating: Like the BtVS box set, this is rated 15+ for canon-typical sex. The song is fairly sexual, though not explicit. Notes: Happy Seasonal Spuffy, folks! Can I offer you a full-length fluffy fanvid in this trying time!
Title: Spuffy Christmas diorama home video Creator: double_dutchess Form: other art Era: comics, S10/S11 Rating: worksafe
I didn’t have time to make something really new, so instead, I spruced up last year’s Christmas diorama a.k.a. peep box. I added lots of nice little presents and some other stuff, making it 5 times as Christmassy. And then I made a proper short home video of it. (You can see it’s a home video from the shakiness. A professional camera person I am not.)
Sorry, I’m having a terrible time getting the embed to work, so here is just a link to the video:
Title: Fire Creator: Double Dutchess Rating: possibly not entirely worksafe due to some Spike nudity and sexy scenes, but mostly just kissing (lots of it) Notes: this round’s theme reminded me of “Fire” by The Pointer Sisters, which to my amazement no one seemed to have used yet for a Spuffy fanvid. To me, the lyrics just scream Spuffy, and I thought it was nice to do a vid from Buffy’s pov for a change. Also, it’s just a great song!
Title: Whatever It Takes Creator: thenewbuzwuzz Rating: worksafe (some canon violence) Summary: What Spike would do for Buffy. Notes: Hello, friends! <3 I have a tiny 30-second video for you, set to the chorus of Whatever It Takes by Imagine Dragons. If the editing looks a bit rough, that’s because this time last week I thought it would be a gifset.
Title: Truth or Dare Creator: Double Dutchess Rating: R. I’ll follow thenewbuzwuzz‘s example, and say that this should be rated 15+ for “moderate sex” because it has scenes from Dead Things in it. Actually I’m not sure I’d call it “moderate” in this case — at least not in terms of quantity. I crammed quite a lot of it into this vid :-) Other notes: Many thanks to the mods for all their hard work, and to all my fellow contributors so far. If I haven’t commented on your entry yet, I will be checking it out soon, now that I’ve posted mine.
Title: Take Me Over Creator: thenewbuzwuzz Notes: Happy Seasonal Spuffy, all! I am more thankful than ever to past, present & future mods and everyone else who keeps this beautiful community alive. <3 I have for you a tiny 20-second vidlet based on a snippet of a song by the band Red. It includes part of Buffy’s dream from “Dead Things”, so, like the season 6 DVD, I guess it’s rated 15+ for “moderate sex”. :)
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.
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.
Title: Loving You Creator: Double Dutchess Setting: S10-11 (comics) Rating: safe for work
My contribution for this round is a follow-up of my vid “As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)“, that I made for last year’s Spring round of Seasonal Spuffy. Unlike that one, this one has no story; basically it’s just the Happy Ever After. Health warning: this is super schmoopy. It is so sugary sweet it will make your teeth fall out. Watch at your own risk!
Credits for the comics artwork go to Rebekah Isaacs, Megan Levens, Georges Jeanty, Steve Morris and Phil Noto. The intro with the birds is from Walt Disney’s Bambi. And the song is Loving You by Minnie Riperton.
PS: I will catch up on reading/commenting on everybody else’s contributions for this round soon, I promise!
Title: School Hard – Falling Medium: vid Creator: Double Dutchess
In the nick of time, a quickly thrown together School Hard vidlet, inspired by my current Twin Peaks rewatch :-)
UPDATE: I’m editing my post to add a note that I didn’t have the energy for last night when I posted this, after my struggle to (more or less) meet the School Hard weekend deadline.
NOTE: The song is “Falling” by Julee Cruise from the Twin Peaks soundtrack. It sounds both romantic and ominous and creepy. I think those last properties make it very suitable for School Hard, where (let’s be honest) Spike is creepily stalking Buffy. “Are we falling in love?” the song asks. (Yes, it’s a question, not a statement. The “are we” bit is just not very well audible in the lyrics.) The answer as I see it is no, not then and there. Not yet. Certainly not Buffy, although she’s clearly fascinated and intrigued by Spike. Spike, on the other hand, is definitely falling for her, but at this stage it’s lust and obsession he’s falling into, not love. And probably he would have vehemently denied this if he’d been asked at the time. Still, this is where it all starts — the Spuffy seed is being planted.
Vid: As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger) Creator: Double Dutchess Setting: Comic seasons 8-11 Rating: other (a couple of sexy images, but nothing explicit) Comics art: Georges Jeanty, Cliff Richards, Megan Levens, Rebekah Isaacs
So, my offering for this round is a vid. Not a regular one, but a comics based one. Technically, it is a slide show, but I tried to turn it into something more than that. And for those of you who haven’t kept up with the comics: yes, when Spike shows up in S8 he has a space ship…
If you’re in one of the 4 countries where the video is blocked, you can also watch it on Vimeo (hopefully it isn’t blocked there).
Title: Flames Creator: comlodge Characters: Buffy and Spike – of course Rating: R – sexual themes – explicit sexual descriptions in story. Images are worksafe. Medium: Fanvid/Podcast – Artwork – Banners and Wallpapers Disclaimer: For fun and entertainment only Summary: Yes folks. Something completly different for me. Comlodge has read her naughty little fic, a sensual Spuffy interlude during their full on S6 affair. It’s a podcast recorded as a video showing several pieces by comlodge herself that do not necessarily match the timing of the story line. They are pretty though. The music is Gympoiedia by Incompetech. The images are included after the video. The video is set to adults only on youtube. I might add, that it is dashed hard recording yourself reading even a short story, lol. Fun though. The video was uploaded in high def and is best viewed full screen if you wish to study the images. Just saying. :D
Title: Invincible Music: “Invincible” by OK Go (cut for length) Rating: PG-13 Warnings: not really; just lots of canon-typical violence, but that’s what spuffy is about, righ? Thanks to my wonderful betas , and !
Summary: Two and a half minutes of Spike’s POV on Buffy. And 5 seconds of her own.
Title:The Wait Creator: nvrbnkisst Song & Artist: Fire Escape by Matthew Mayfield Description: Buffy & Spike and the rivers of hope & denial they swim in. They are each others homes, they just don’t know to grasp that. “You know what I am, and you come to me all the same”
So, I really don’t like this video. I’ve reworked a bunch of stuff. Over and Over. and I know I say this every time, but I’m really not ok with this. In fact, the only reason I’m posting it is because I didn’t have any other videos finished to post for my day. So I’m really sorry this is not my best work.
I have a couple other artsy things to post so I hope those will make up for this.
Title: All We’re Good For Creator: Nvrbnkisst Form: Fanvid
Song: Nightwatchmen by Bell X1 Description: Buffy & Spike and all they’re good for. Notes: The song is really what had me making this video, I’d never really heard a song like it (which is surprising with the amount of music I listen to). I have a kink for good buildup in songs, and that’s all this is, it’s doesn’t have a chorus, the verses are side by side but each one that starts is a continuation of the last one. And it’s just really pretty. and speaks of Spuffy on a huge scale. This band should be more famous.
