Introductory note: on Buffyforums, there's a season three rewatch and I'm writing a bit about Dead Man's Party. To try to get into the POVs of the Sunnydale characters, I wrote this.

I'm doing well in general, but I'm still fragile -- so if you don't like it, well, you know, be gentle! I include this disclaimer (and would prefer not to link to *this* version, though linking to the AO3 version is okay should I post it there) because I know how divisive this episode is, even if I'm only talking about it glancingly.

The POV style is somewhat inspired by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy's excellent Building Character, which is also of a much higher level of artistry and is strongly recommended.

Disclaimer: Not mine.
Takes place: Sunnydale, around the first week of school in s3, before "Dead Man's Party."
Characters: Giles, Xander, Willow, Cordelia, Joyce.
Word count: ~2500

So, I've been nominated at the Willowy Goodness Awards!



The nominations are for "The Magicless Bullet," and also my Willow/Faith fic, "Keeping Each Other," which I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] tiny_white_hats' Tenth Anniversary Ficathon and which I never posted here.  That's totally weird, right?  Each is up in several categories; you can click the nominations and check out all the other excellent fics nominated too.

(I didn't vote in the nominations rounds, so I'm especially sorry to see that no one voted for [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy's wonderful stuff.)

Which reminds me in general that I've been meaning at some point to mention that I opened an AO3 account in which I've posted several fics that I wrote only at ficathons.  Since I figure it's probably worth having a copy of them on my lj, I will now include four stories I've written previously but have never posted here, all at different comment ficathons.

Keeping Each Other, my as-of-just-now WGA-nominated fic, based on [livejournal.com profile] daria234's prompt "Willow/Faith or Willow&Faith, post-series they work together well, but she doesn't know what she would do if the other woman went dark."
Keeping Each Other: Willow/Faith, post-series, 488 words )




For [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42's Not My Ship comment ficathon back in 2012, based on [livejournal.com profile] pocochina's same-titled prompt, Lindsey/Darla "that old time rock 'n' roll," came:

That Old Time Rock and Roll, Lindsey/Darla, PG, 769 words, early s2 )

Going way back, two fics written for [livejournal.com profile] catbirdfish's Women On Top Kink meme back in 2011, both based on [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral's prompts.  One is a black-comedy Spike/Anya s7 pairing, the other a slightly sombrer Cordelia/Wesley post-"Graduation Day" fic.  I left them untiltled at the time and only have titles now.

An Acceptable Substitute: Spike/Anya, PG-13 or so, s7, 560 words )

Post-Graduation Blues, Cordelia/Wesley, shortly post-"Graudation Day," PG-13, 605 words )

ETA: It went so much without saying that I forgot to say it, but THANK YOU to whoever nominated me!  It is very much appreciated. :)

So my lovely gf Rosemary and I started watching Angel a few months ago.  I've seen the whole thing many times, but this is her first time; she's watched all of BtVS, on my suggestion, though only once.  (We weren't dating when she watched it, and were living in different cities, so I didn't watch it with her except a few episodes here and there and about half of season seven.)  We're actually fairly far into it--midway through season two--but I've had all these thoughts and some of them I think are maybe worth sharing.  In principle I'd like to go through episode-by-episode, as I already have some notes I've made on most of the shows, but we'll see where this takes me/us (and also: many of the episodes are boring!).  So I'm not quite sure where I'm going with this, and plus my life is getting busy and stressful these days.  But you know, hopefully this is a fun outlet for me and hopefully someone enjoys reading it.

These are admittedly somewhat culled together from lots of other sources; this is me absorbing, not me trying to copy, but I should admit a debt right away to the dozens of great pieces of meta I've read over the years.  I think a lot of my view of Angel the character comes from macha at Tea at the Ford and her writing on the "three protagonists of the verse," though, and so I'm going to give a special shout-out.

So let's talk season one.  Not my favourite year: in fact it's my least favourite televised Buffyverse season.  But it has a pretty good pilot (and it also has the Faith episodes and the emergence of Tim Minear as a creative force-to-be-reckoned with), so I (hopefully) have a few things to say.  SPOILERS FOR ALL OF ATS AND BTVS TV SERIES.
