Whaddyaknow? Yesterday was my 9th fanniversary! And [personal profile] herself_nyc's birthday, not entirely coincidentally. She encouraged me to jump into this fic thing, way back when, and here I still am.

Things in RL have been super busy, so my online life has been curtailed a bit, although I'm still reading most every day. I did start a new WIP for the most recent round of [community profile] seasonal_spuffy , which means I've now got 3 WIPs over there, about which I should really do something. Anyway, here's where that is:

Title: Buffy and the Bloodmobile
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2115
Setting: During an alternate S5, after the altercation with Glory in “Blood Ties”.
Summary: Property damage has consequences.

The judge glanced at Buffy...

I've been traveling a lot, mostly for non-fandom purposes... )


Last weekend, I went WhedonCon 2017, just for meeeeeeee! )
rebcake: Spike & Buffy: happy under the carpet (btvs spuffy_carpet)
[community profile] sb_fag_ends did a Halloween challenge, which I failed to meet because of pesky timezones — not procrastination, not at all — but I still managed to post some stories:


Title: The Fun House Doors of Perception
Rating: Mature, 'cos language and S6 shenanigans
Word count: 540
Prompt: Seeing Isn't Believing
Setting: S6, around the time of "Gone"
Summary: Spike's sure he's got it all figured...

and

Title: Foxy Ladies
Rating: PG13
Word count: 650
Prompt: Outfoxed
Setting: S10-ish
Summary: Spike and Buffy go out on the town in San Francisco, at a drag bar. 

Let me know what you think!

P.S. [personal profile] thedeadlyhook  and I had a blast at the drag version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Live! Very theatrical! We'll be back for the Star Trek: Mirror Mirror presentation in a few weeks. The Oasis (bar, danceteria, cabaret) is a local treasure, sure 'nuff.
rebcake: Giles serious then laughing (btvs giles lol)
I've decided I'm going to WriterConUK next month!

It will be my very first trip to the UK, and I'm all atwitter. I've been asking all my ex-pat friends what I should do while I'm there. One said I should order a drink called a “shandy” since I am a light drinker, and another mentioned Scotch Egg, because bacon, but I am not convinced.

Now I ask you! I'll be in Edinburgh, Bath, and London, when I'm not in Coventry, Chester, and Liverpool. Give me your suggestions about things to see and do, to eat or not eat, and places to stay. I'm thinking near Paddington*/Kensington while in London, but I could be convinced otherwise.

I was notified that I've been nominated for a No Rest for the Wicked Awards, but I have no idea for which story or in what category, so it's mysterious AND exciting!

It reminded me that I haven't posted links on my journal to things I've written for comms, so here goes... )
rebcake: Joyce with Axe: Not in the brochure (btvs joyce axe)
Like many of you, I am most seriously displeased with the way the world is at the moment.

All the ways things are horrible... )

On the lighter side, let me complain, yet again, about how I fail at Tumblr. I had a little time last week, so I thought I would try to enter the BtVS conversation in a couple of places, and that I'd be able to figure it out this time. Almost immediately, I lost track of what was being said where, could not find the threads I knew I had seen someplace, and found posters leapfrogging over each other until I was completely lost. Apparently there is a vast difference between "commenting" and "reblogging" — much more than I knew. I can never find my "comments, which also post before I've edited/finished them. I give up. I can't figure out how to keep track of even my own content/contributions. I guess I'll stick to looking at pictures and following links on the Herald, but not engaging over there. That's where the BtVS conversation is, so it's frustrating.

Um, I don't think I mentioned over here that I posted the first couple of chapters of a WIP at seasonal_spuffy, back in May. If you missed it, and don't mind a bit of silliness here you go:

Title: What Happens in Canada
Rating: Mature — for language, themes, and science
Summary: For the good of her sister Slayers, Buffy participates in a study (in Canada). She's a giver.

Since then, I've been to some films at the Frameline (LGBTQ) Film Festival. It was super fun, as always, and then I went to see Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs at the Castro Theater, which is his live show. Also Dear Old Dad was visiting, and we saw the touring company performance of Cabaret (thanks, feliciacraft!), went to the new SFMOMA, and did a bunch of other art-related things. Including this really amazing stealth photography museum, called Pier 24, which has a huge, amazing, super-curated exhibition, but only allows a handful of people in at any given time. You have to make reservations online and then go through an airlock (only slightly exaggerating) to see the marvelous photos. If you are into photography and coming to or already in SF, I highly recommend it!

I am kicking around the possibility of going to the UK in September, partially to attend WriterConUK! It's all very sudden, which makes me think I'll probably not pull it off, but the temptation is fierce.

Before that, I'm going to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in years, ostensibly to flog the new Fantagraphics collection/reprint of Wimmen's Comix. There is even a panel! If you will be in San Diego, come to my panel:

The Complete Wimmen's Comix: A Her-story
Groundbreaking women cartoonists discuss the pioneering history of this comic series that covered still-taboo topics like abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Moderator: Trina Robbins.
Sunday July 24, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm , Room 29AB

Doesn't that sound like fun?

rebcake: Spike & Buffy: happy under the carpet (btvs spuffy_carpet)
I wrote something for sb_fag_ends, so in so doing I've met my 2016 resolution!

Title: Wonders Never Cease
Author: Rebcake
Word count: 980
Rating: PG13
Prompt: Crimson Tide
Setting: S6, Warning for reference to lots of kinds of fluids.
Summary: Spike finds out about something he thinks will interest the Slayer. A stake-out is required, because that always goes so well.

This way to the story:

Spike threaded the motorcycle around the “closed at dusk” sign
rebcake: spike air kiss (btvs spike_kiss)
I don't think I wrote any more (or less) fic than usual. I didn't do any drabbles or ficlets, though, which is odd for me. I promise to do more for sb_fag_ends in 2016! That seems like a manageable resolution, doesn't it?

My fic in 2015:

Time Is Tight for the Nikki Wood round of femslash_minis. (Willow/Nikki, Bernard Crowley, Ensemble, Time Travel, PG13, 5110 words) I rarely write Willow outside of her friend-of-Buffy capacity, so this was new for me.

Fire in the Soul (6a of 9) for the Spring round of seasonal_spuffy. (Spike, Buffy, Dru, OCs, PG13, 2075 words) A continuation of my San Francisco travelogue, wherein Spike and a souled Drusilla come to help Buffy with the latest big, brewin' evil. Still a WIP, alas.

Giles and the Mountain for summer_of_giles. (Giles, OCs, Pre-series, 1950 words) Young Giles and a friend attempt to scale a mountain. Spoiler: It doesn't go well.

Anniversaries Aren't For Quitters for the 10th Anniversary round of seasonal_spuffy. (Spike/Buffy, Ensemble, OCs, PG13, 2800 words) Obviously, you celebrate a 10th anniversary by writing a story about a 10th anniversary. Right? Right!

When You Wish Upon A Bar (4 of 4) for noel_of_spike. (Spike/Buffy, D'Hoffryn, Ensemble, PG13, 2125 words this chapter, 5600 for the story) Spike makes a wish to D’Hoffryn. Silly vampire. Complete, concluded, no longer a WIP! Part 1 can be found here.

I also helped Anaross put her stories up on AO3, made a few fandom discussion posts, and had a blast helping to mod seasonal_spuffy. ¡Yay, fandom!

On the personal side, there were highs and lows. Less good: minor-ish surgery (gall bladder), some annoying health things, and more memorials than I'd like to attend. I don't mind attending them, but I dislike losing loved ones. Good: work continues to go pretty well, I took lots of fun, fun trips, and got to spend time with my friends and family! This means you!
rebcake: Spike & Buffy kissing in bed (btvs spuffy_kiss)
One last story before we say goodbye to 2015. Another WIP down! The long-awaited, or perhaps long-forgotten, conclusion to a little noel_of_spike story!

Title: When You Wish Upon A Bar (4 of 4)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2125
Characters: Spike/Buffy, Dawn, D'Hoffryn
Setting: BtVS Season 6, after Wrecked, but before Older and Far Away. Also after AtS S3 The Vision Thing.
Summary: Spike isn’t getting what he really wants out of his secret “relationship” with Buffy, though things could be worse. Just his luck, D’Hoffryn has decided to celebrate Gurnenthar's Ascendance on the Hellmouth after a romantic disappointment of his own.

Part 1 here / Part 2 here / Part 3 here

A cuckoo in the Christmas tree...
For those of you who'd like to know why it took so long... )
rebcake: Buffy, pretty slayer (btvs buffy slayer)
I hope everybody is having a lovely holiday weekend or a lovely just-plain-old weekend. Earlier in the week was my [community profile] seasonal_spuffy posting day! If you missed it and are interested in such things, here's the scoop:

Title
: Anniversaries Aren't For Quitters
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2800
Genre: Semi-spicy domestic fluff. Contented Spike alert.
Summary: Ten years after their rush job of a wedding, Buffy and Spike try to find time to celebrate. It's harder than it sounds.

A/N: Although it's not necessary to read the previous stories, this is the next installment in the Ring On It 'Verse series. It began with a small wardrobe change on the morning of the final battle of the Hellmouth, and led to an un-sought-for transformation, namely that Spike has a heartbeat. AU from Chosen. The whole series can be found here on AO3. Previous [community profile] seasonal_spuffy posts are With This Ring, Under My Skin Prologue, and Under My Skin.

This way to the story...

rebcake: Giles serious then laughing (btvs giles lol)
I wrote a story for summer_of_giles! Click on the link below to go read it, if you wish!

Title: Giles and the Mountain
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG
Word count: 1950
Summary: Young Giles and a friend attempt to scale a mountain. Spoiler: It doesn't go well.

Coma Pedrosa

The summer before the start of university Giles and his friend were looking for adventure...
rebcake: cake! cake! cake! (cake)
It's my fanniversary today!

Back in 2008, at the urging of [livejournal.com profile] herself_nyc — whose birthday it is! — I posted my first fic, Becoming Anne. This "urging" is no reflection on her estimation of my storytelling. (I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm too easy on Spike.) At that point, all she'd ever read from me were comments on her work. But she pointed me at LiveJournal and I'll be forever grateful.

What's going on in my corner of the fandom... )

New fic!

For [community profile] seasonal_spuffy I did a short update to my WIP, Fire in the Soul:

Title: Fire in the Soul (6a/9)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2075
Pairing: Spike/Buffy, with Dru and OCs.
A/N: Thanks for the quickie beta by MiAmor. 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.

6a — In which our heroes get closer to the source of the big, brewin' evil, if not each other.

To start at the beginning: Chapter 1 on LJ / Chapter 1 on DW / On AO3

How my writing is going… )
rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (dw river_amy)
Title: Time Is Tight
Author: Rebcake
Characters: Willow Rosenberg, Nikki Wood, Bernard Crowley (and the gang)
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 5110
Summary: The final fight with Glorificus takes Willow to a place she’s only read about.

A/N:
For Round 114 of femslash_minis, the Nikki Wood round. Ended up not so mini. Aaronlisa requested time travel, subway, and waiting but no Robin (mentions okay) or either of the girls dying and no comics canon preferred. I consulted BtVS Season 9 #6 for background on Nikki and her Watcher, but this story isn’t based on the comics.

New fic, and it's a departure for rebcake! To read the story, click the link:

Caught in the cold crackle of Glory's portal, Willow kept her head...


rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (dw river_amy)
I'm working on a time-travel fic, so naturally my mind has turned to thoughts of Rome Spring other time-travel fics. Because what better way to procrastinate? It’s a trope that Buffyverse fic writers have thoroughly explored to good effect. That makes it tough to choose! I'll probably have a whole other list or two, perhaps one just for Our Heroes Go Back in Time: To War! But first off: Classic Buffyverse Time travel! This list contains mostly het, some slash, and Buffy or Spike. Usually both. AO3 links, where possible. In alphabetical order:

rebcake: Dawn: sqeeeeeee (btvs dawneeeee)
Hey everybody! I am poking my head out of my burrow with some fandom news! No Rest for the Wicked Awards has announced the winners of Round 11 and several of my f-listies are on the list! Congratulations, all you talented people! I got this little beauty:

nrwa_11_showtime

It's very cool and warm and fuzzy, but the main thing is to keep on ficcing, amirite? There is no better proof of this than an excellent new story, posted just today by one of the winners, [personal profile] beer_good_foamy . Go, read The Queen, The Soldier as soon as you possibly can. No need to thank me.

Also, sb_fag_ends is inspiring an outpouring of seasonal Poe-themed Spuffy, and if you are inclined to enjoy such things you won't be disappointed. Because there are so many stories going up, comments are few, so if you find something you like, let the author know! I've put up a few things, and have a few more in the pipeline, although this week is really far too busy in real life for me to do as much as I'd like. All are on the lighter side, but that is apparently how I'm rolling nowadays. Here they are:

The Other Half (prompt: The Masque of the Red Death)
Sing It Out (prompt: Spiritual Song)
Spare Me (prompt: The Spectacles)

Have a great Halloween Week, my darlings! I'll be thinking of you!
rebcake: Joyce with Axe: Not in the brochure (btvs joyce axe)
Happy Mothers Day, my dears. Rarewomen 2014 is unveiled, so you should all go see the lady gifts. I wrote some Dollhouse Adelle DeWitt backstory, so if you're into that sort of thing, here it is:

Title: Construct of Paradise
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 1130
Characters: Adelle, Roger, OFC
Summary: Adelle didn’t regret the good old days. Even well-educated, well-ordered women like herself should have their period of experimentation.

I requested some Harmony fic, and lo! A most excellent AtS S5 Harmony fic appeared!

L.A. Confidential by [personal profile] selena
Harmony decides on a new career. After all, if Angel can be a detective, anyone can.

It's a hoot, with great Harmony voice and even a little bit of plot. Check it out!

It looks like I'm still firmly in the Jossverse, folks. Wish me fic!
rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (dw river_amy)
I finished my [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen assignment! Woo! It will be unveiled with the others sometime this weekend over on AO3.

I wrote a drabble to celebrate. That hasn't happened in a while.

Title: Conundrum
Characters: William & Drusilla in 1880
Prompt: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Click here to go to the story.

Yeah, babes! I'm back! To stay! All the multitude of projects that have been eating my time and my brain are back to the normal simmer, rather than a rolling boil. Rather an unpleasant mix of metaphors there, isn't it? Oh well.

This is what's been going on with me: )

2013 marked my 5th fanniversary on LJ. Here's what I did.

rebcake: Buffy, pretty slayer (btvs buffy slayer)
I've got a new fic posted at [livejournal.com 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: spike air kiss (Default)
I got my [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends over a year ago, making it eligible for [livejournal.com profile] sb_ashtray, and it was on my [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy moved back to LJ. I can't be the only person with these issues, can I?
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. (btvs spuffy omwf_finale)
I've got a new, finished fic posted over at [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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.

CHAPTER 1 / CHAPTER 2 / CHAPTER 3

Inspiration for this came from [livejournal.com 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: Buffy and Spike about to kiss during OMWF finale. (btvs spuffy 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 [livejournal.com 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.

Previously:
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? (ats 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 [livejournal.com 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.
