Have tried to catch up on stuff and last night finally had time to read [livejournal.com profile] lillianmorgan's [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy fic... and I don't think I've ever fallen for a fic so hard before. It's Spuffy, but not like any other Spuffy fic I've read before. The writing is incredibly rich and lush, conjuring up the most wonderful images, which fits the narrative's dreamlike qualities. I even made this very, very simple little thing - clicking will take you straight to the story:
LM story.

The gorgeous icons I used are by the talented [livejournal.com profile] earth_vexer who has also just posted in [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy: lots of wonderful S6 and S7 icons! Do go have a look! You can find them all here.

Feeling very sleepy and my house resembles an obstacle course (sigh), but I just wanted to point you in the direction of a couple of things:

[livejournal.com profile] lateseasonlove has just opened its first challenge. Details here.

And [livejournal.com profile] earth_vexer has started a new community: [livejournal.com profile] librumincendere: Librum Incendere is a place for fans of the Whedonverse to discuss their favourite books. It's not a book club per se - there will be no reading assignments - just discussions about books that we love.

Oh and it's [livejournal.com profile] lillianmorgan's day at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy! Go read her fic asap: Your Face Appears in Mine.

It's nine years since Buffy first aired! :)

And [livejournal.com profile] molly_may has a lovely post where you can show your love for underappreciated episodes. :)

ETA: Feeling very listless at the moment and my internet is *still* wonky. Thank goodness it's the weekend!

I changed my default icon for the day - isn't it cute?

Anyway, I *will* come bearing fic later, but I thought that it'd be nice to make a round-up post of all the nice things people are posting today! (I will try to update during the day if possible, but I might be too busy. We'll see.)

So, what's happened so far?

[livejournal.com profile] stir_of_echoes has made a laugh-out-loud (seriously! Do not drink whilst reading!!!) Spike and Angel scrapbook with a few 'missing scenes' from TGiQ. Um, if you are *completely* allergic to slash you should probably stay away... *g*

[livejournal.com profile] kathyh has posted 3 utterly stunning Spuffy wallpapers. (S5, S6 and S7.)

[livejournal.com profile] femmenerd has written S/B/A - Three utopian!drabbles that you should really, really go read asap! :)

[livejournal.com profile] hesadevil wrote 2 Spuffy drabbles. *happy sigh*

[livejournal.com profile] poshcat has had one of the best ideas ever and given us all a chance to post a goopy classified ad on LJ! Yay! :)

[livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight has organised a Valentine's Fluffyton. There should be something for everyone! :)

~~~~~~~~~

If your reaction to all this soppiness is 'Bah! Humbug!' then [livejournal.com profile] bogwitch's anti-Valentine's drabble might be for you!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] mbangel10 has posted 10 Ways Dick Cheney Can Kill You. Nothing to do with Valentine's but very, very funny!

My head is crammed to overflowing, so I pimp! But seriously, this is top-notch stuff - we have such clever people on LJ!

First [livejournal.com profile] avrelia wrote an essay: Character Study: Anya, life and death of. Very insightful and intriguing, she really manages to get under the skin of the character, highlighting flaws and strengths and the odd path her life took. For anyone who loves Anya, this is a must-read!

Then [livejournal.com profile] frenchani posted one an essay containing one of the most fascinating theories I've ever read: The mystery that is The First Evil. I have never come across this way of looking at TFE before and I am hugely impressed with the whole thing. *And* it makes an awful lot of sense, showing S7 in a completely new light! I love it!

(There's more good stuff being posted on [livejournal.com profile] lateseasonlove so do have a look if you have some spare time! :) )

::re-does post because of earlier stupidity::

Still not feeling very well, so I've spent longer than usual in front of the computer, procrastinating. The upshoot is that the last part of the Christmas fic is just about ready to post (like, more than a month after the event... ah well, it has nothing to do with Christmas anyway). Also I had a sudden and very interesting insight, and will be posting an essay on The First Evil as soon as it's finished.

Now I remembered writing something about 'Amends' and 'Never Leave Me' once upon a time, but I could not find it! So I re-did it. The fabulous [livejournal.com profile] crackers4jenn pointed out that she'd written something v. similar a while ago. After about an hour it suddenly dawned on me that what I'd written wasn't a post - it was a comment!!! ::facepalm:: Soooo I'm going to copy out the essence of that comment, since I'd like to have it in my own LJ, but if you're curious you can find c4j's very brilliant post here and my comment here.

Soooo, here it is, again! )

But before getting to the recs, I must do a little whining because it has turned COLD!!!! No snow of course, just chill that freezes you slowly! Also I am all aches and pains... I absolutely cannot wait for tonight and a big warm bath!

Anyway, I can now point you towards another reason I've been absent: [livejournal.com profile] buttersideup's Essay on Season 7 (it's also our first post in [livejournal.com profile] lateseasonlove - and yes that does mean that posting is open). She'd written tonnes of notes, but was all fed up with trying to knock them into shape, so I begged asked her very nicely to send them my way. I had loads of fun sorting it out - it was like getting a big jigsaw puzzle and carefully building it (rather than having to make all the pieces myself!). Of course my brain then went off on a tangent and I added a couple of Spuffy thoughts. Yes I am a sad obsessive fangirl...

Oh and the other thing I wanted to mention was that [livejournal.com profile] eyesthatslay has posted a batch of Chosen icons. Beautiful, heartbreaking and fabulous! ::points to new icon::

There was other stuff I was going to talk about, but I'd better go be useful for a while since the baby is asleep.

Actually the baby's got a cold and has been yelling/sleeping all dsy poor thing. But trying to calm her I've spent a good while sitting in front of the computer. So I give you:

[livejournal.com profile] yourlibrarian has written a very insightful essay on Restless, wondering what it says about Spike and the characters' interactions with him. And, since it 'predicts' so much of the future, why is Spike not in Buffy's dream... ?

Also [livejournal.com profile] deborahmm is continuing her S7 re-watch and has now got as far as Sleeper. Many good points and much Spike-love! :)

I can't believe that I'm only getting round to pimping this now - why can't I afford a cleaning lady?

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] mbangel10 is very kindly providing links to Arbitrar Of Quality's reviews of the Buffyverse. He has only just started on Season 2 (wasn't all that impressed with S1, but usually managed to find something worthwhile, even in the worst episodes!).

He really liked eps like 'The Pack' and 'Prophecy Girl', and is obviously a perceptive guy - from 'Prophecy Girl': The sequence [Xander fetching Angel to get him to help] makes one wonder what it says about Angel, that he was willing to sit around until someone came along to coax him into helping.
Heeeeee!! ::loves Angel::

He's just finished 'When She Was Bad' and has this to say re. baddies: BTVS has been one of those shows where the heroes are invariably more interesting than the villains anyway.
Which just makes me squee, because he is only one ep. away from Spike and Dru. Not to mention Angelus...

So, if first-time viewers' reviews are your crack (like they are mine), do check him out. Oh and he is COMPLETELY UNSPOILED! So enjoy. :)

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] kathyh posted some very interesting thoughts on 'Anne', amongst other things drawing parallels to S6.

[livejournal.com profile] deborahmm is re-watching S7 and posting her thoughts. All very good, and today's post on 'Him' were especially fascinating, since she found so much to like in a much-disliked episode.

And [livejournal.com profile] stoney321 has posted a rant about a certain breed of fic writers. Go look. :)

Oh - and I nearly forgot - [livejournal.com profile] femmenerd has written a wonderful essay about Buffy.
