As usual, I can't collect five things in a particular category and time is running out, so here are five of my favourite fandom things from 2016.

First some wonderful fan art.

Venus and Mars by [ profile] rbfvid (Restfield). This piece was inspired by one of my fics (of the same name) but that's not why I'm reccing it. I'm reccing it because it's beautiful and clever, and in all ways absolutely superb.

Next a brilliantly written fic, which takes the Amnesia!Buffy trope and turns it into something poignant and chilling.
Memorial by [ profile] lyrstzha
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: mostly gen, past Angel/Buffy
Summary: What if, when Buffy ran away to LA after killing Angel, she actually couldn't remember who she was or what she was running from?

Now, back to the art.

Someone To Watch Over Me, by [ profile] chasingdemons. Again, this is a banner for a fic I wrote, but again, I think it stands on its own merit. It's absolutely beautiful and (not that it matters) a superb interpretation of the text.

More fic, this time from the sadly now closed [ profile] sb_fag_ends community's final Halloween challenge. The prompts were episode titles of the old cartoon series, Gargoyles.
There Used To Be by [ profile] foxstarreh
Rating: PG
Setting: Post-series (comics continuity applies, though you only really need to know that one day, a long way down the line, there will be a Slayer called Fray.
Prompt: Future Tense
Summary: Spike meets Fray. They reminisce about Buffy.

And finally, something daft and fun, also from [ profile] sb_fag_ends
Skating, Figures? by [ profile] double_dutchess.
It's a vid featuring a skating Spike and Buffy, and that's all I'm going to say. Enjoy.

We'll be running for another 11 days still so no rush, but glad to see your list! I hadn't read Foxinator's story yet, thanks for that.

Great recs.

Restfield's Venus and Mars was on the list that I was looking at but I went with a couple of others instead. Touch choice though!

Eee, Spike and Fray meeting. That's brill. Thanks so much. I hadn't seen it before.

Thank you for including my silly little JibJab in this list! It does feel a bit out of place among all this brilliant stuff.* To be honest, I totally forgot I had even made it this year and failed to include it in my 2016 overview post! So, I also thank you for reminding me of its existence :-)

*I haven't read Memorial, but plan to remedy this as soon as possible (thanks for the rec). For the remaining three items on your list, I agree they're all brilliant.

Venus and Mars is gorgeous, as is Memorial. I haven't come across the others, so I love having more things to discover.

I considered it a major achievement to have made a banner for an author I think so highly of. Thanks, Deb, for highlighting my work.

The "Venus and Mars" banner is wonderful even out of context - thanks for the rec. :)
