FF: Kids Today

Title: Kids Today
Show: BtVS
Category: Post-series, comic!verse inspired 
Rating: PG
Notes: Written for [community profile] summer_of_giles. This takes roughly place sometime after Season 10 of the comics, but be warned, this is written by someone who has only skimmed the comics. That's why I say it's comic!verse inspired, not necessarily compliant!

These kids today.... )

Rating: G
Pairings: B/G
Notes: This is a slightly different take on things for me. Normally I write discrete stories told in ether one-shots or chronologically arranged parts, but I keep coming up with ideas about this particular post-Chosen world. So, while this might be my first story in this worl, it hopefully won't be my last. Written for [community profile] summer_of_giles .This is set shortly before the Angel episode "The Girl in Question", but you don't have to watch that episode to know what's going on.

Pairings: mildly B/G (I gotta be me)
Notes: Believe it or not, this started as a 100 word drabble for [community profile] giles_shorts  that grew to epic proportions. So, it's my second day offering for [community profile] summer_of_giles  instead.

SoG Drabbles

So [community profile] summer_of_giles had a First Line/Last Line Drabble Challenge and it was excellent!! Normally, I only include three or four drabbles to one post, but I don't want to spam the majority of my friends' Reading pages with stuff they already saw. So here they all are, all at once.

Category: Post-Chosen
Rating: PG
Pairings: B/G
Notes: My first offering for this year's [community profile] summer_of_giles. This picks up right after that last closing shot of Buffy smiling. (Also, while I didn't intend them to be companion pieces, my fic In Midst of the End works as an effective prequel.) The movie that Buffy quotes is Hard Day's Night.

Notes: I've had this plot bunny for a while, but this week's theme of "Getting On" over at [community profile] giles_shorts  proved to be a rich soil to let it grow.

Shippy Giles & Buffy Drabbles

And here are the rest of my drabbles for [community profile] giles_shorts. The only question remains is if I will ever be able to write a BtVS drabbles that includes someone other than Giles or Buffy!

Non-Shippy Giles & Buffy Drabbles

So I'm normally better at keeping my journal up-to-date with my fic output, but [community profile] giles_shorts kept me busy with their first line/ last line challenge. And then there was the whole LJ thing and yeah. (I'm going to have to look into cross-posting now that I'm here on DW.)

New Home

Eleven years ago today, I started my LJ. Tonight, I ended it. And here I am. New blog. It's the end of an era, but maybe it's a start of a new one.

So Long and Thanks For All The Fish

This was the last thing I ever wrote on my LJ:

 

Eleven years ago today, I started this LJ. Today, I'm ending it. You guys all know why. You can still find me on AO3, FF.Net, Tumblr and now on DreamWith too. I hope to see you on at least one of those platforms.

I'm going to leave this LJ up for a few months or so and then I'm going to delete and purge. So, update your bookmarks accordingly.

Goodbye, my LJ. Thank you so much for all the fond memories. You were a happy place to call home.

FF: Balcony View

Title: Balcony View
Show: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Category: Post-Series
Rating: PG
Pairings: Buffy/Giles
Notes: This started as an idea for the Shakespeare Month over at [livejournal.com profile] giles_shorts, specifically for the prompt "Exit, pursued by a bear". But at 900 words, the fic got a little too long to qualify as a "Short".

More Drabbles

I asked some friends for drabble prompts.  At the same time, [livejournal.com profile] giles_shorts has offered a bunch of Shakespeare related prompts. So, here are the first few with more to come.

Some more drabbles for [livejournal.com profile] giles_shorts. While these two drabbles can be read seperately, I prefer to think of them as set in the same post-series future.

FF: Buffy and the Slayer

Title: Buffy and the Slayer
Show: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Category: Season 5 Canon Alteration for "The Replacement"
Rating: PG
Pairings: Buffy/Riley with all its flaws, background Xander/Anya, and very slightly Giles/Buffy because that's just how I roll
Notes: This takes "The Replacement" (the one with the two Xanders) and asks what would have happened if Toth's plan had actually worked. It helps if you have recently watched the episode, or at least read the recap on Wikipedia, since I don't explain the details that stayed the same as in canon (stuff about the spell, general exposition, etc).
