rebcake: Spike & Buffy: happy under the carpet (spuffy_carpet)
Just popping in to say I did a ficlet for [community profile] sb_fag_ends! It's for their February "My Bloody Valentine" challenge. Is it possible to do fluffy S&M? If so, I guess that's what this is.

Author: Rebcake
Word count: 570
Rating: R
Warnings: Not exactly sex, but not sweet romance, either.
Prompt: Diamond necklace cat o'nine tails
Summary: Spike has found an extreme way to help Buffy blow off steam.

Since I talked to you last, McDiva and I went to Chicago for a long weekend. It snowed! We did lots of things! Fun was had! This week is the start of her school's run of SPAMALOT, which is sure to be silly. College acceptances are coming in. Taxes are done. Work is busy. I did housework last weekend and got a blister. Dear Old Dad is coming for a visit next week. I'm hoping to be around these parts a bit more after the next couple of weeks. Woo! Oh, except for the trip to NYC in a month! Double woo!

rebcake: cake! cake! cake! (cake)
2013 marked my 5th fanniversary on LJ. Here's what I did.

Fannishness... )

Non fandom real life… )
rebcake: Buffy, pretty slayer (slayer)
I've got a new fic posted at [ profile] noel_of_spike! It's post-Christmas, but it's up!

Title: Midwinter Plunge
Author: Rebcake
Word Count: 3,300
Rating: PG13
Characters: Spike, “Doyle”, Faith, various bystanders. Any pairings are off-screen, but Spike/Buffy-ish.
Prompt: Spike, Doyle or Faith, Hot Chocolate
Summary: Spike catches a chill while helping the helpless in Angel S5, more or less circa Soul Purpose. Faith knows just how to warm him up.

Doyle grabbed a beer from the cooler and held it out to Spike...

Happy New Year, everybody!

rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (river_amy)
I actually wear comfy yoga pants (that's trousers to you) to watch television. It's usually a group activity at our place, with the TV-less neighbors coming over bearing plates of cheese and chocolate. I'm watching more stuff than usual this year. Not sure why, but I like to think it's because there are things on worth watching. Here are my TV thoughts for this fall:

All the days of the week explained... )

I got my [ profile] seasonal_spuffy story posted! It's a miracle!

Title: The Sleepless Beast Knows Best
Author: Rebcake
Characters: Buffy, Spike, and a bunch of Angel Season 5 folks.
Rating: PG
Word count: 2350
Summary: It’s the 2003 Wolfram & Hart Halloween Party, and Buffy’s been invited.
A/N: For Angel non-watchers, it’s the one where Lorne accidentally starts broadcasting destinies rather than just reading them.

Click the link for the story:

Drunk guests? Check. Disco ball? Check. Unslayable demons dancing to The Ketchup Song? Checkity check check.

I apparently can't write AT ALL unless there is a deadline, and even then, the deadline gets muffed. My posting date was the 8th, which I told myself could be pushed to the Free-For-All Day on the 10th, but then lobbied the mods to extend into yet another day, since it was a holiday, after all. I am ridiculous. The beginnings of the story stem from a prompt at [ profile] sb_fag_ends over a year ago, making it eligible for [ profile] sb_ashtray, and it was on my [ profile] letsgetitdone list. Does that mean it's a three-fer?

In trying to post to [community profile] seasonal_spuffy on Dreamwidth, I discovered that I can no longer post to communities on Dreamwidth, because my email notifications are screwed up over there and attempts at fixing them have left me locked out of various functions. I guess it's good that [ profile] seasonal_spuffy moved back to LJ. I can't be the only person with these issues, can I?
rebcake: Joyce with Axe: Not in the brochure (joyce_axe)
I think I'm starting to come up with my own way of evaluating movies, which starts with the Bechdel Test (thanks, Alison!), uses a variation on[personal profile] hello_spikey's "man candy" criteria, and adds a few more items. It doesn't necessarily correlate with how much I like a film. It isn't an indication of overall quality. It's very individual, and if a movie doesn't have at least five of these things, it's probably not a movie that I'm going to be excited about seeing:

1. Does it pass the Bechdel Test? 1 point
2. Does it show positive female relationships? 1 point
3. Does it show female characters being smart? 1 point
4. Does it show female characters being awesome AND kind? 1 point
5. Are there any gratuitous female gaze shots of scantily clad pretty men? 1 point
6. Was there any non-bashing gay content? 1 point
7. Was I at any point pleasantly surprised or amused? 1 point

I like genre, but I'm not a fan of the straight-up horror movie genre. However there are some movies with those elements that strike my fancy. In the past week I've seen Kick Ass 2 which is about one kind of horror, and Warm Bodies, which is about an entirely different kind. I have thoughts. They aren't deep, but a few of them are superficially spoilery. My evaluations below.

Warm Bodies was pretty much great... )

Kick Ass 2 is absolutely ridiculous... )

I just got back from my annual Gal's Weekend with a bunch of pals from college, for which I am the designated film fest curator. That means that I show up with a dozen choices and the group whittles it down to maybe two for Saturday night viewing. It came down to Bride & Prejudice and Whip It this year.

Bride & Prejudice, no surprise, follows a familiar and beloved story, plus so very pretty! )

Whip It is a delightful trifle about alt-roller derby. )

Bonus Attack the Block... )
rebcake: cake! cake! cake! (cake)
Someone — and I have my suspicions — nominated some of my fics in Round 10 of the Running With Scissors Awards! Woo hoo! Thanks, kind nominator(s)!

Defenseless (Spike, Joyce, Buffy, Giles, Faith; alt S4) in the Rigor {Over 10,000 words} category.
No Regrets (Mr. Gordo/Miss Edith; S2) in the Who's Huh with What?! {Unconventional Couple} category.
Rules and Customs (vamp!Xander/Spike/Angel; Wishverse) in the Stakes and Chains {Slash} category. This one is nasty and bleak. NC17.
Love Me, Love My Dog (Spike, Buffy, Xander, Angel, Cordelia, Dru; Halloween S2) in the Fanged Midget {501 - 1000 words} category.

Summer is nice... )

rebcake: Joyce with Axe: Not in the brochure (joyce_axe)
I know everybody likes to rag on LiveJournal, and rightly so, but I'm a little miffed at Dreamwidth right now. Apparently, if you don't have a paid account, you can't get notifications of a response to a comment you made in another person's journal. How is that okay? Doesn't that negate the whole point of people talking to each other? I bite my nail at you, Dreamwidth. I also apologize for not responding to people who thought they were having a conversation with me on DW.

This is on top of my discontent with the way they decide willy-nilly which icons you will be left with when your paid account expires. Essentially I'm unhappy with my FREE STUFF not being how I want it. Gosh. What's wrong with people?

In other news, as soon as I get out from under this mountain of work, I'm going to McDiva's art show, the Death of DOMA rally in the Castro, a Frameline (LGBT, etc) Film Festival film, and more partying in the street! Whatever shall I wear to the Pride Celebration?
rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (river_amy)
Just a quick check-in to say: computer/phone/tech upgrades suck. But I'm getting there. Look, ma! Internet browsing: go! Moving on.

Best thing about yesterday was McDiva announcing that she now has the perfect comeback to the "why don't you smile, sweetheart" question to which females are so often subjected. "The patriarchy." Of course! Why didn't all of us think of that a million years ago?

Vacation time! College tour time! Two travel treats in one! )

The death part... )

In fandom news, I fluffed my [community profile] seasonal_spuffy day, which was the day after we got back from our trip. But the story is about 2/3 of the way done, I promise. I might've finished it in time for free-for-all day, but spent all day Saturday with a new friend who just finished watching Buffy for the first time. We went to Much Ado About Nothing, watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, the Shakespeare Retold version of Taming of the Shrew, had dinner and then watched the Firefly pilot. It was a bit much, but she's young. Heh. I'm going to get back to the story writing...between tech support calls, work, jury duty, doctor's appointments, etc. We all need moar fic, amirite?

rebcake: cake! cake! cake! (cake)
Forgive me, friends list. It has been a week since my last post. In that time, so much has happened, the non-fannish high points being:

1. Bela Fleck at the new SF Jazz Center. Banjo fun! (Also, dinner beforehand with dear friends.)
2. Gershwin and Ravel at the SF Symphony with Dear Old Dad, who was in town for....
3. McDiva's Third Annual Fashion Show! Big doings! A triumph! One of these days, I'll post pictures.
4. A whole bunch of school-related stuff, and also work related, well, work.
5. Huge flurry of getting ready for vacation/college tour week. Still on-going. Why else would I be making a post?

But I had to note that today is the fifth anniversary of posting my first fanfic on LJ! Just five years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Late to the party, but very happy to be here. [personal profile] herself_nyc  encouraged me to try my hand, and I posted without knowing it was her birthday! So, now it's a milestone day for two reasons. Happy birthday to you, darling, and happy fanniversary to me. I hoped to have some fic to post today, but that's not happening. I am working on my Seasonal Spuffy story, though, so there will be something soon!

Love to you all!

rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (river_amy)
I’ve been bad about posting, because, well, in addition to my computer being balky, I have a new obsession. One that I am obsessed enough about to put before you now. At the end, there will be fandom thoughts, I promise.


It's her life, I'm just visiting... )

Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, Byzantium, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Elementary... )


Have a terrific weekend!


rebcake: Joss is the employee of the month. (joss)
Last night MiAmor, McDiva, and I attended the San Francisco International Film Festival screening of Much Ado About Nothing. I will attempt to contain myself but it was freaking awesome!!! quite good.

The review-ish part... )

The Behind the Scenes part... )

rebcake: Spike: What? (Spike: what?)
Today is the last day to contribute to [ profile] buffyversetop5's look at excellent Buffyverse fanworks of 2012. There are lots. Even if you are pretty involved in fandom, I can guarantee you will find something cool that is new to you. Go! Check it out! Add a list if you can!

Here are links to my "Top 5" lists, because I have this weird thing about lists:

5 Excellent Short Gen Fics
5 Funny Odd Couple Fics (Slash Edition)
5 Terrific Vampire Tales (Some Historical)
5 Short Spuffy Charmers
5 Spuffy Shorts With Varying Degrees of Sad
5 Mostly Unromantic Short Fics

[ profile] fantas_magoria and [ profile] spuffy_recs.

Don't say I never gave you anything! \o/
rebcake: Joss is the employee of the month. (joss)
Hey, look! It's January! My fic output continued apace last year. I never feel like I do much, and compared to many of you, I don’t. I wrote fewer stories, but because they were longer (for me) stories, the total word output is about the same as it's ever been since I began this whirlygig of fun nearly five years ago.

What I did last year in fandom... )

rebcake: Buffy and Spike about to kiss during OMWF finale. (omwf_finale)
I've got a new, finished fic posted over at [ profile] noel_of_spike! Complete in 3 chapters!

Title: The Vamp Around the Corner
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 7850 in 3 chapters
Characters: Buffy, Spike, Joyce, Dawn, Willow, Tara
A/N: Takes place in an AR wherein Buffy was called to Slayerhood according to schedule, but did not move to the Hellmouth until her freshman year of college. NOT a Wishverse fic. Many thanks to [ profile] shapinglight for betaing, though she can't be blamed for changes that happened after her read-through. Contains dialogue swipes from BtVS. I do not own…yada…strictly not for profit…yada…
Summary: When the Slayer's family moves house in her second year of college, a new neighbor swiftly becomes all she wants for Christmas. His wants are decidedly more complicated.


Inspiration for this came from [ profile] lutamira, who put up a list of tropes and asked for characters and pairings to go with them. I decided I wanted to see Spike and Buffy in a "next door neighbor AU", while retaining their vamp/slayer natures. One shower later, I had what I deemed to be a workable idea. You may judge for yourself whether you agree.
rebcake: Dawn: sqeeeeeee (dawneeeee)
The winners were announced over at the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards! Many people on my flist were honored, including fandom stalwarts [ profile] beer_good_foamy, [ profile] bogwitch, [ profile] lilachigh, [ profile] lit_gal, and [ profile] rahirah (Barb_C), one who has moved on to other fandoms [ profile] goldenusagi, and relative newcomers [ profile] red_satin_doll and [ profile] spuffy_luvr! Congratulations to all! Alas, some excellent stories and authors did not receive their due, as sometimes happens. I voted for you, sweeties!

I was thrilled that my story Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? received recognition in a few categories. Winner for Best Post-Series Finale, Runner up for Best Characterization — Female (Buffy) and Best Romance! )
rebcake: Buffy, pretty slayer (slayer)
Who knew? Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards has extended it's voting window until this Friday, Dec. 14th! I understand there are several ties at the moment. Go! Vote! Make some deserving author happy for the holidays! Rules are here, nominees are here, and voting is here.

Full disclosure: My story Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? is nominated in several categories, due to some kind person(s). I am also nominated in the "Best Author, Spuffy" category. *wipes tears* (I can't tell if they are tears of joy or mirth, but either way it's all good.)

Several excellent writers from my friend list and beyond are on the ballot this round. Good luck, everybody!
rebcake: Joyce with Axe: Not in the brochure (joyce_axe)
I was touched to see the outpouring of appreciation for IDW artist Franco Urru upon his death a few weeks back. Unfortunately, I was in the emergency room with MiAmor at the time, so didn't really get to comment. Hoo boy, was that ever NOT fun... )

rebcake: Buffy and Spike about to kiss during OMWF finale. (omwf_finale)
A new chapter of that Buffyverse San Francisco story/travelogue for my [community profile] seasonal_spuffy posting day! For reals!

Title: Fire in the Soul (5/?)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 4100
Pairing: Spike/Buffy, with Dru and OCs.
A/N: Thanks for the quickie betas by [ profile] shapinglight and MiAmor. Some photos contained herein are copyrighted as noted. NOT comics compliant.
Summary: A few years after Sunnydale’s spectacular demise, Buffy and her crew are getting on with their lives in San Francisco. A not entirely unwelcome blast from her past (Spike! It's Spike!) blows into town, but he’s brought more than the generally allowable amount of baggage with him.

Chapter 1 on LJ / Chapter 1 on DW — In which a "chance" encounter leads to strong language and less-than-adult behavior. Also: animal magnetism.
Chapter 2a on LJ / Chapter 2a on DW — In which Dawn makes her feelings known and Buffy tries not to.
Chapter 2bc on LJ / Chapter 2bc on DW— In which Buffy gets on with her Sunday, which naturally ends up being weird.
Chapter 3 on LJ / Chapter 3 on DW — In which Buffy checks in with Giles and has another bizarre vampire meet up.
Chapter 4 on LJ / Chapter 4 on DW — In which Buffy possibly overthinks things before she and Spike try that new-fangled “communication” thing.

New today:
Chapter 5 on LJ / Chapter 5 on DW — In which Spike and Buffy lick their respective wounds after a communication breakdown.

Spike watched the plastic bottles from the overturned recycling bin bounce anemically down the street... )

rebcake: Spike: What? (Spike: what?)
Heh. Was inspired to jot off a little Halloween fic. Tis the season!

Title: Love Me, Love My Dog
Author: Rebcake
Prompt: Very Beast Friends for [ profile] sb_fag_ends
Word count: 985
Rating: PG
Characters: Spike, Lady!Buffy, Pirate!Larry, Soldier!Xander, Angel, Cordelia, Demon!Kids, Dru
Summary: Spike picks up a few things at Ethan’s Costume Shop, and is dragged by the collar into chaos.

Follow the link to the story:

Spike fingered the collar hanging in the shop. Made him a bit nostalgic...

rebcake: Joss is the employee of the month. (joss)
First, thank you to whoever nominated Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? for the 27th round of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards!

That is pretty darned sweet, lemme tell you.

I watched some old movies this weekend and went off the range a bit. I wrote a drabble, see, but it's not of the Buffyverse. That hardly ever happens. Anyway, here it is, my first (and last?) The Avengers/Pulp Fiction crossover! It's still ostensibly Jossverse, hence the icon. Also, my Dreamwidth subscription ran out, so I'm always surprised at which icons survive!

Title: A Transitional Period
Author: Rebcake
Fandoms: The Avengers (movie) / Pulp Fiction
Characters: Nick Fury, Steve Rogers
Rating: PG13, but Language
Word count: 100
Summary: Nick Fury has walked a long road to get to this point.
