This really is all nonchop's fault.

nonchop was all "woe as me, oh horror" and then she was like, read *this*, and then I tried to scoop my eyes out with spoons because of that thing with the oreos that we will never, ever speak of again. I mean, seriously, ever. Just the eww.

So she's like, write for me! And then she's like, making it porn! And she's like, I want a castle in Spain! And the porn, frankly, seemed a lot easier, don't you think?

Here's what I've discovered. Threesomes with three males are nightmares. You decide to randomly not let one poor guy have a name? It's a whole world of wondering what hand is where and why and pronoun confusion. Everyone who has pulled this off well, I'm just in awe, because I read mine and start getting a headache. I need, like, action figures or something to keep up.

I suffer in ways that people just can't comprehend sometimes for my art. Porn. What have you.

Buffy Things

Just a random rhetorical question. I'm not coming out of watching this season without scars, am I?

I forgot a lot of things. How incredibly hot Giles is. Just. Incredibly hot. I realized I forgot how much I loved Buffy and want to feed her like, hugely fattening cookies and tuck her into bed with most of the cast. At this point, I want to feed her brownies by the box and tuck her in with Spike and Giles, which I know in theory is very, very wrong. Very very wrong. A whole world of delicious wrongness. *happy sigh*

And for random question of recs, did anyone besides rivkat and MustangSally write good Spike/Buffy? Yes, I'm aware there's a universe of it out there. Just, if you happen to have fallen across some and have to share, feel free. I'm feeling all vaguely het-ish today. Possibly the penis overload from the snippeting for nonchop.

DVD Players Hell

I don't *need* a five hundred disc DVD changer. I can't *afford* a five hundred disk DVD changer. I don't even own five hundred DVDs. I'm not sure I own a hundred DVDs. Yet I stare at it in a kind of wonder, imagining putting eveything I own in there and being able to flip around randomly, perhaps programming it to just hit QaF scenes that I like. You know, the porny ones. Which I'm not even sure it could do, but imagine three seasons of QaF's B/J sex scenes all at once.

It could acutally lead to hemmoraging.

I'm looking at a five (seven?) disc Pioneer from Best Buy and trying this thing called research to see what it does. Ideally, it would telepathically interpret my mood, pick something for me to watch, and then deliver chocolate chip fudge brownies, extra chewy, but that may be beyond current technology. *sighs*

Recs

Achilles Heel by beatperfume. Um. Lessee.

Ben might know something; he seemed the type. But Brian wasn’t about to ask him. Besides, when Ben had squeezed his shoulder at the wake and told him that the ones we love never truly leave us, he was pretty sure he hadn’t meant it literally.

It's *different*. Feel your way through. Amazingly good, but when isn't this author?

Okay, going to stare blankly at snippets and wonder if it can grow up into a whole fic on its own.

You really wouldn't believe how many posts start out just like yours!

God, you are so... bubbly(?) today! That was too much fun to read. Can only hope you'll be sharing the porn. heh. Oh, and if you do find that DVD player, I'd be in the market as well. *mmmm, brownies*

And thanks, so much for the 'Achilles Heel' recc. What an amazing story!

*giggle*

Agree with fabu ... eliade and herself are prolly the best ficcers out there for S/B, as well as (occasionally) other pairings.

Just a random rhetorical question. I'm not coming out of watching this season without scars, am I?

Of course not. *crosses fingers behind back*

I realized I forgot how much I loved Buffy and want to feed her like, hugely fattening cookies and tuck her into bed with most of the cast.

Ditto, exept for wanting to relationship her up with other people. I was more into the premise and the characters than who was sleeping with who. Love the actress and the way she portrays a range of emotions, but sometimes I want to reach into the screen, and go, "Stop dieting! You looked more attractive before," but I rationalize that Buffy has a hard life, and killing things and almost being killed burns up a lot of calories.

And for random question of recs, did anyone besides rivkat and MustangSally write good Spike/Buffy?

Check out my BTVS/Angel site: http://www.impisheyes.com
You'll find tons of recs....all of them good.... :-)

*has really good taste*

[/self pimp]


How much do you hate that we can't fucking edit our LJ comments? Not as much as *I* do...

Good Spike/Buffy is also written by: anniesj, herself_nyc, and eliade. You'll want to read eliade's Demon Noir AU season; it's better than crack.

I have recs here although I am way behind on updating.

Have you ever tried Maleficient's Only 'The Truth' was ever completed, but I remember enjoying it a great deal. And even if you're not interested in the read, that pic of Willow on the main page is worth the visit.

It is official. You are cute. I should mention that none of us were surprised.

As to the porn...That's exactly why I'm keeping away from writing threesomes in any way shape or form, if I want one, I sic it on my girlfriend *g*. But if you can pull it off? Make sure to put up a link so I can read it, because I love to read them.

As for Buffy? Hrm maybe you should already save up for aesthetic surgery? Lots and Lots of scars ahead for you until the bitter end. And recs? well if you still want them *cracks knuckles* (have I mentioned before I knew SV I was an addicted spuffy shipper?)

The long ones:

The Game Series just go back to here because I am too lazy to put up all four links for all the parts. (Warning, scrolling involved!)

Beneath Masks Not a happy happy joy joy story, but well written and it got me


The Short ones:

That Thing... mostly porn and fun to read

Make a Wish that one's actually pg-13, but funny *g*

other than that, there's one huge, giant, long and I mean really really long, twisted, developing, work in progress, several novel length story that you should read when you got hmm a month or so vacation.

Dancing Lessons not a quick read, but definitely worth it.

That's about it. Other than that, how humongous does a DVD player have to be to fit 500 disks? But that program that telepathically senses your mood and gives you the right music for it definitely sounds like something I'd like to have....

Grah, look at me procrestinating while I should be writing on my story! *runs*


For superb Spike/Buffy, or just good all-around BtVS/A:ts fic-writing, try these three British writers.

If you want a much longer list of good Spike/Buffy sites, let me know you genuinely want me to dump it on you by replying to this. I have the list at home but keep forgetting to consult it when I'm there.


You might want to try www.allaboutspike.com - this site is Spike/Anybody, but you can just look at the S/B stories if you wanna.

I agree with the suggestions above, though. You should read eliade and herself_nyc's stuff first. ;)

How incredibly hot Giles is. Just. Incredibly hot.

So true!!! No matter how much I like or dislike any individual episode, just seeing a little bit of Giles makes it worthwhile. Are you watching season 6? My least favorite thing about that season is the way he leaves for so many episodes in the middle! ;)
