It's been a bountiful year. :)

1. Illustration for Zabjade’s fanfic “Thursday’s Child” by [livejournal.com profile] bewilde
Rating: R? He's only wearing a kilt and some rope. *g*

I think my favorite thing about this image is how comfortable Spike looks. I adore the fic and its sequels, but most of it wasn't written in 2016, while the illustration is definitely 2016 and very nice. See the cute, symbolic butterfly there in the corner? :)

2. Banner 16 for Elysian Fields Artistic Anniversary Challenge by RESPICE FINEM
Rating: R? That kilt might slip off any second...

It's so strange, wondrous, and imagination-stimulating in every way. :) The banner was claimed by [livejournal.com profile] eurydice72 for her awesome WIP Razing the Veil, which [livejournal.com profile] lusciousxander already recced with good reason. The kilt has yet to make an appearance in the fic (I look forward to it).

On to purely verbal skirts (in Spuffy fic).

3. The kilt in Chapter 5 of Attainathon by Sigyn (note: currently still Elysian Fields member-locked, but ought to be available under TheSigyn on AO3 after it's complete)
A sweet, fluffy, NC-17 delight in the string of sweet, fluffy, NC-17 delights that is this fic.

4. Leather miniskirt for gladiatoring in Strange Land by [livejournal.com profile] zabjade
I think Spike kicking butt in a short skirt is a very nice idea. It's also the least of what goes on in this fic in terms of gender role exploration/subversion.

5. A plaid schoolgirl skirt in Buffy Noir by [livejournal.com profile] zabjade
Part of his customary outfit as Buffy's smoking hot secretary. Again, the skirt is just the tip of the iceberg. The fic is a WIP with only one chapter so far, but what a chapter!

5.5 Pretend loincloth in A Certain Amount of Connecting by Sigyn.
Not exactly a skirt, but, unlike "Attainathon", this story can already be accessed by anyone. It's as smutty as the description sounds, but and the depth of characterization is MINDBLOWING. As for role ambiguity, it's all there. (Who teaches, and who learns? Who sees whom as less than human? Who's corrupting whom, or is it redeeming?) There's also a strap-on poetry, mythology, AND history. The only drawback I can think of is some Angel-bashing (though Spike does it for a good cause).
