God knows we needed to get our laughs where we could last year, so here are five ficlets from 2016 that made me giggle

To kick off, try a perfect Giles, Spike drabble from [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano. Spike might just be a little bit obsessed with Buffy. No wonder Giles needs Something Stronger.


I love in fandom that while obsessed Spike can often be a fertile ground for high drama, he also can be very funny, and here’s another example. [livejournal.com profile] feliciacraft hit a home run with Blooming Obsession.

Some fandoms are just confusing with their multiple iterations and incarnations. In Who’s On First by redsrule1, the Scoobies try a little Sherlock cosplay. It should be simple, right…

In Re-Focus by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, Anya turns her attentions to Willow rather than Xander. She’s civic minded like that. *g*

And finally, as an antidote to the endless election run-up, St_Salieri wrote Mantids Are People Too, in which Willow sleeps, Andrew casts spells, Dawn explains, Xander eats popcorn and Buffy gets confused.

Let the chuckling commence.

God yes, I think humor is very welcome (as are stories of our heroes taking a stand). I had a good laugh at the disclaimer on salieri's story.

Humor was such a big part of the show, so it makes sense that it's part of our fiction. And you're right, we could all use a good laugh right now!

Great choices! I'd read three of them before but I'd forgotten them so it was just like reading a new funny story until I checked out the comments and saw that I'd left some, comments that is. ;-)

And Who's On First! Wow. I've never read anything by redsrule1 before but I'm definitely going back for more.
