I won an award! Whee!


I am amused that a story (still a WIP, until next month) about slayer sexual response research would win "Best Gen", but it's true that there's very little actual sex in it. Poor Buffy.

So many wonderful friends also won awards, and can I just say, "Keep it up, guys! You're doing great!"

I'm pleased that a story that I beta'd won an award in the Angst category: [personal profile] shapinglight's Third Wheel, a fascinating look at what would have happened if Darla was the "lady" Buffy became in Halloween, and what that might mean when she and Angel get together. Another fun one is the other winner in the Gen category, [personal profile] st_salieri's Desert Wonderland. Check 'em out!

Tonight, I'm headed to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, drag!

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:


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!

I did another fic! I was unable to resist the genfic_minis' minor female characters challenge and now the world has just a little bit more Harmony!

Title: Haven’t Seen Your Face For A While
Word count: 1175
Rating: PG
Characters: Harmony for [info]brutti_ma_buoni, with bonus Jonathan and Spike.
Summary: Harmony reflects on her lack of reflection circa Superstar.

Follow the link for fic and prompt details:
Dying was the scariest thing to ever happen to her, and that included the time Jonathan sang to her at her Sweet Sixteen...

Also, my fluffy Skip/D'Hoffryn story, The Gay Agenda (or, Happy Anniversary) has been nominated in a few categories at [community profile] the_hellmouth_awards , a new award site that spotlights rare pairings in the Buffyverse. Go check them out and don't be shy about nominating any of your favorites, old or new. Just click on the pretty to see all the nominees:

Thanks, kind nominator(s)! I'm especially happy to be represented in the "Unbelievably Believable" category. I mean, isn't that what this writing lark is all about?

rebcake: Spike & Buffy: happy under the carpet (btvs spuffy_carpet)
Piffle! It's never too late! Except when it is. *ponders*

I've been home with a sick kid for a few days, but there's been plenty of joy, and some of it from fandom! Can I get a woo and a hoo? 'Cos you guys are great!

First thing to celebrate is the announcement of the winners in Round Nine of the Running with Scissors Awards! There's some great stuff on the list, including a few things by some friends who happen to be excellent writers. So congratulations to brutti_ma_buoni, duh_i_read, rahirah, and moscow_watcher among others! Well done, all. My silly Giles piece won something, too! Whee! The mods haven't released the pretties yet, only the list of winners, but those are always intensely gorgeous and it just gives us something to look forward to, right?

Also, the buffyversetop5 recommendation site has been going full steam, and I've been viewing and reading tons of stuff that I missed. Which admittedly slows down the writing a bit, but I'm getting a lot out of it. Also, I just happened to luck out and make the 1,000th rec post to the site, which led to fabulous prizes! Virtual confetti, champagne, as well as a couple of months of paid LJ time, and a couple of years worth of extra icons! It brought a joyful tear to my eye, let me tell you! Thank you to the very generous mods, and thanks to all the people who are giving us such great recs! Especially those that are reccing my stories, of course. ;-} I've got a few lists still to post over there, though the more I delay, the more of my favorites get picked off highlighted by listmakers more fleet than I. Maybe I won't have to post anything more because all the good stuff will have already been recc'ed? Ha! Never happen. We could definitely use more pre-series lists, which I'm having trouble compiling from my foggy memory bank. Any suggestions?

Have a wonderful (long) weekend, my lovelies! Think not of the inevitable betrayals of (some of) our fellow men, but the promised land we make of our existence here on earth through kindness, thoughtfulness, and the act of creation.

If you're like me, you may have trouble making decisions — especially when all the choices are good ones! Still somebody's got to do it, right? You have a few more days to let your voice be heard at the Running With Scissors Awards. There is a rather painless little poll going, one question for art, one for short fic. They are calling it the Peeper's Choice and the Hairy Eyeball Awards (Viewer and Reader's choice). Go check it out and make the mods and the creative folks who are nominated feel the love! It isn't difficult or time-consuming, I swear.

Full disclosure: One of my stories is nominated in one of the categories, but so are several far more worthy selections. A couple of really amazing pieces I hadn't seen/read before are included, so finding more of the good stuff made me happy.

Welcome to December, my lovelies! I have a feeling we're going to have a ball!

rebcake: Spike & Giles: drinking tea (btvs spiles tea)
Happy Nigel Tufnel Day to [personal profile] beer_good_foamy . Turn it up to eleven, babe!

Of course, it's also Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, and Veterans' Day. The name may change, but the sentiment is constant. I continue to be amazed that we can commemorate our fallen — everybody's fallen, actually — with a poppy or a minute of silence, and then turn around and throw more precious young humans into the charnel house. Don't mind me. Maybe I'm the crazy one.

On that note, here's a bit of mayhem I posted in honor of the 90th anniversary of the the end of The War to End All Wars(TM):

Tipperary (1916) Spike/Drusilla
At loose ends in war time, Spike and Dru decide to check out the big show.

I wish you and yours a peaceful holiday.

A bit of fandom stuff: )

I succumbed to [ profile] clawofcat's offer. So, now I must make my dubious skills available for your pleasure.

The first FIVE people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/characters (from Buffy). If you'd rather have a limerick than a drabble, that'll work. It would be swell if, in return, those five people post this in their journals, and offer drabbles or icons or something. Haiku? You get the drift. You don't have to, though. Anyway, requests of rare-ish characters would be especially fun for me to do, but it's not required.

In other news, I got a pretty pretty for my little awards show fic:

They've gone to monthly voting over at [ profile] still_grrr, so it's a slightly larger pool these days. I was really surprised to get this, especially as I was pretty sure that [ profile] deird1 was going to sweep the field in February! Her absolutely brilliant fic, Bureaucracy, finished out of the money, through some weird fluke, but that's no reason not to immediately run over to her journal and read it now.
Linkety link to "Bureaucracy"!

Things have been hopping for me on LJ. My [ profile] seasonal_spuffy day went by, and not without comment, thank you all very much! ETA: I just found out that With This Ring is nominated in Round 9 of the Rogue Poet Awards!

It's in both the Short and Lighthearted categories. Lighthearted? I inserted actual angst, I'm sure I did. Once or twice, anyway. Once again, thank you to whichever of you did this! I'm so excited.

This weekend, I've got a [ profile] seasonal_sd (Spike/Dru) post to do, but have I started? No, I have not. I guess it'll be another historical, because they're fun to do. Does anybody know of anything really cool that happened in the late 19th century or the 20th century? Anyone?
