So, I come bearing fic. I've been working on this like crazy (if it's bad, that's why) these last few days since Valentine's kinda snuck up on me... and what with being so busy, my muse decided that a schmoopy piece of fluff was not going to be the order of the day. Well there *is* fluff and schmoop, but somehow I also managed to turn this into a set-up to a sequel to 'Maybe Someday' (for which I still don't have a plot, but give it time...).

Anyway, it is a stand-alone of sorts, but more like a FitB from this as yet unwritten sequel. ::facepalm:: But I will write it, don't worry. I just have to get a few other things out of the way first.

Many red roses to my fabulous beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh.

And feedback is better than chocolate! :)

ETA: This is set in 2007, so two and a half years after the end of 'Maybe Someday'!

Finally here! It could probably be better, but I'd like to post before Easter, and overall I'm quite happy with it. Anyway, this really has nothing to do with Christmas - dunno why I'm writing Riley centric stuff, but I can only hope that it'll appeal to both those who like the character and those who do not - mostly I tried to tie up a few lose ends. ::crosses fingers::

If anyone wants to play catch-up, here's Part 1. (The story is set within my 'Maybe Someday' verse, but is pretty much a stand-alone. There is a second part, but it is an interlude full of Spuffy schmoop that isn't really important to the main story.)

As always many smooches to my ever fabulous beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh!

Feedback makes me do the Snoopy dance. :)

So, my day has been rushed and stressful and all sorts of annoying things that I'm trying to purge my mind of, and that I'm certainly not going to inflict on you. Instead I come bearing Christmas (or Holiday/Hanukkah/Solstice etc) fic: Something warm and snuggly to help you all de-stress.

This also happens to be the second part of 'Not Quite a Christmas Carol' (Part 1 here), but if anyone has actually read Dickens' marvellous tale, they might recall that the first ghost is melancholy, the second jolly and the third creepy. Soooo, this fic is all about the warm and happy (see icon) - a sort of stand-alone within a stand-alone. Or, more precisely, an interlude. All you need to know is that Spike and Buffy are dating, he's come to Rome for Christmas and the resident Watcher is called Johnson (and his wife's pregnant). Let the schmoop commence. :)

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kathyh for the beta and feedback is the best present there is! ;)

Look I wrote something! It's taken forever, and part 3 will probably not be done until Easter, but there you go. This isn't really a sequel to 'Maybe Someday', just a little sort of extra story that's been sat in my head almost since I got the idea for the original story, and set a few months later. I hope you like. ::crosses fingers::

This can be read independently I guess, but most of it will only make sense if you've read Maybe Someday.

As usual loads of smooches to my lovely beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh!

Feedback stops the baby crying! *g*

I know that Saturday night is probably not a very good time for posting fic, but - I finished it!!!!!!!!

::does the Numfar Dance of Joy::

The muse finally decided to pay me a visit, so I've been busy for days now and it paid off! I wrote 'The End' and everything! :D I also did a word count, and the whole thing is 48000 words long! I cannot believe I wrote that much! But then I've been working on it since... January? I can't really remember anymore.

Anyway, thank you so much to all of you lovely people out there who've been reading (and leaving feedback). You have no idea how much I've appreciated it! ::hugs you all::

Also many, many thank you's and choc-chip cookies to my fabulous beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh. Don't know what I'd have done without you! ::smooches::

If anyone needs to catch up - or feels like starting from the beginning - previous chapters can be found here.

So, here it is. I hope you like! :)

I know I only posted Chapter 18 a few days ago, but hey - trying to get this ‘out of the way’! ;)

So I give you the penultimate chapter - rather darker in tone than the rest of the story I’m afraid (it is after all the sequel to ‘The Summer After’). Anyway, I’ll go away and concentrate on finishing the last chapter. (Work brain! Work!...)

Previous Chapters here.

My heartfelt thank you’s to my ever-lovely beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh!

And feedback makes me write quicker! It’s true! ::nods::

elisi: (Maybe Someday by buttersideup. All Mine!)
Hello all! Normality is slowly returning. All guests have left and school started again today, so I'm enjoying the relative peace (the 4-year old doesn't start until Monday, but still). And I'm happy to say that the writing is going well. I have a chapter for you now and I finished Chapter 19 (the penultimate one) yesterday. So hopefully I should be able to finish the fic before the baby arrives (22 Sept). ::crosses fingers::

Anyway, here's Chapter 18 for your enjoyment. I'm afraid it has minimal plot and huge amounts of self-indulgence. So, um, I hope you enjoy, since I enjoyed writing it! As usual many thanks to my lovely beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh. :)

Previous chapters can be found here.

(And feedback is a very neat thing, isn't it?)

OK, here goes. What with the parental invasion tomorrow and all, I thought it would be good to post a bit of fic before I turn back into a lurker. I think this is mostly alright, at least that's what [livejournal.com profile] kathyh and [livejournal.com profile] lillianmorgan have told me. So I'll cross my fingers and hope you like!

Oh - and feedback makes my world go round! ;)

We're going off to Wales on Sunday (for a one week holiday - I'll MIIIIIIIIIIISS you all! *wah!*), so I thought I'd post this before we left. Not sure I'm perfectly happy with it, but I really don't have much more time for fiddling about with it, so I hope you like anyway. And I know it isn't nice to leave people with a cliffhanger for too long. Thank you so much all of you for reading and for your lovely feedback... funny how I never tire of it! ;)

Since [livejournal.com profile] kathyh is still away, the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] lillianmorgan stepped in and beta'd this for me! Don't worry LM - I won't forget about the dragon! ;)

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] kathyh was able to beta this v. quickly, so I'm posting already! :) I hope you enjoy although it is short! (You like cliff hangers, right?)

Previous Chapters.

Feedback feeds my muse - and right now I'm afraid that she really needs a good meal! I have most of the rest of the story planned out and I know what's going to happen next. I just don't know *how*. Blank wall. So the next chapter might be a while...
