Five favorite shippy shorts from the past year, and one vid as a bonus.

very good bad thing by spangel. Cordelia's POV on Buffy. So accurate that it hurts.

Waylaid by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy (or AO3 link). Faith/Tara in the Wishverse, and it's surely the lightest and most hopeful Wishverse story I've ever read.

There are so many awesome videos in Youtube! I've discovered all these wonderful gems recently, but they were created before 2016.

I forgot to bookmark things I wanted to rec this time around, which was stupid of me. So I'm just going from memory here and have probably forgotten loads of great things. But anyway, here are five random fandom things I enjoyed in 2015.

First some fic.

Ipseity by [livejournal.com profile] spuffy_luvr. Buffy/Spike, Teen and up. A wonderful long, plotty fic, featuring an amnesiac post-Chosen Buffy and her friends', and Dawn's, attempts to help and restore her. Lots of angst ensues.

Bobby, Roger and Eileen by [livejournal.com profile] double_dutchess (Angel/Buffy/Spike). The most adorable resolution for those pesky Bangel vs Spuffy wars, that never cease in Buffyverse fandom. No one have to cry tonight, right?

Some of my favorite AU fanvids.
Cut by [livejournal.com profile] spikesredqueen - (Faith, Willow; R for drug use and blood). Dark all-human AU where Faith and Willow experienced pretty much the same things as in 'Buffy' canon. But in all-human 'verse it's even more painful.

Alphabetically by vidders' names. I'm listing the music tracks here because even the most accomplished vidders often fail to do so.*

"Red" by Afterthebattle - (Buffy/Spike) Spike POV S5-7. "Losing her is blue like I've never known/ Missing her is dark grey all alone..."  Set to Tyler Ward's down-tempo 2012 cover of Taylor Swift's "Red" from his 3-song CD Covers From the Road.


"Light 'em Up" by Afterthebattle -  (btvs, gen) A "vidlet" that packs an incredible emotional wallop in just 1:23 minutes.  Set to Fall Out Boy's "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'em Up)".

"He's Not My Boyfriend [Humor]" by Afterthebattle - (Buffy/Spike, S4 -6) Reminder: Every once in a blue moon I actually do come across a funny fanvid in this 'verse I enjoy. It's not that I am all about the angst or I lack a sense of humor *ahem*; it's that drama is hard and tragedy is harder, but comedy is damn near impossible to get right. Song: "Hey Na Na" by Katie Herzig.

"O' Death" by Jana (Kayenaatic) - (Buffy) a "high lonesome" Buffy character study on par with  "Suburbia" by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny , "Deeds That Have Made Me" and "Under Stars" by [livejournal.com profile] fray_adjacent12. The haunting title song by Jen Titus is perfect for Buffy but feels timeless: the slow beat of a funeral dirge. BTW - I didn't have to look up the song credits in this case because Jana listed them at the end of the video. Can we get a MAJOR ROUND OF APPLAUSE for this?

"Who Are You, Really?" by xxIrisHaloxx - (Faith, Buffy) Episodic of "Who Are You", one of my all-time favorite episodes. Focusing entirely on Faith in Buffy's body, the beginning has a fun, kicky feel with playful editing of the "making faces" scene in front of the bathroom mirror; and then slowly becomes something darker as Faith's growing discomfort within her stolen skin becomes unbearable. Title track by Mikky Eiko. (Credit goes to [livejournal.com profile] blackie_da_minx for rec'ing it on her LJ.)


* I looked them up on ITunes as needed. You're welcome.

FANVIDS:
Changes by thedothatgirl (Worksafe, gen) - A great ensemble overview of BtVS Season 4, thedothatgirl's vids are always gorgeous.
Mah Na Mah Na by kallysten & lynnenne (Worksafe, Angel/Spike) - The vid is so funny and it masterfully highlights the parallels between Spike and Angel.
Maybe Sparrow by fray-adjacent12 (Worksafe, Wesley/Fred) - So epic and moving! :)

PODFICS:
The Future, Soon by tieleen - read by reena_jenkins (Worksafe, gen) - An imaginative and haunting look at the slayers future, read by the talented reena_jenkins.
A Buffyverse Alphabet by shadowscast - read by reena_jenkins (Worksafe, gen) - "A Buffyverse Alphabet" is a great classic and it's fantastic to be able to enjoy it in podfic form, too.

Dizzy by [livejournal.com profile] astartexx - Worksafe – Interesting result from a remix challenge, this vid takes a look at the Willow and Spike relationship that could have been. One thing I liked about it is that it suggests a Spike whose arc took a rather different, even oppositional turn, with a Willow whose increasing dangerousness becomes even more obvious.

In no particular order :

Batwitaba by Whoisnorml?. Buffy at her butt kicking best.

Coin Operated Boy by [livejournal.com profile] sdwolfpup. What does Buffy really want in a boy? Not even she knows for sure.

One Last Time by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny. Who is Buffy more worried about controlling--Spike or herself?

Black, Black Heart by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny. Spike and that coat.

Smile by Charmax.

There are so many great videos and video creators that just aren't available anymore "sighs".

If You Can Reach Me by SpuffyProductions (Buffy/Angel, Buffy/Spike) - And, boy, I'm not even a Spuffy fan. It's just that great...

Gift by Bisclaveret (gen, ensemble) - Because... is there a more perfect song for the buffyverse? I don't think so.

Howl by Shoopdancer (Angel/Darla) - Ah, Florence and the Machine! Another perfect, powerful song choice.

The Fiddle and the Drum by Gwendolyn's flight (gen, Wesley-centric) - Ah, Wesley... So moving and perfect...

Fragments by E^y (gen, Wesley and Illyria centric) - A perfect gem. 00:22 always stoles my breath away.

I just realised that there might be people who've never seen 'Black Black Heart', and then I felt obliged to remedy this. After that I had to attempt to only choose four more vids... (RL is being insistent that I step away from the computer now, but I'm sure my selection will make you hunt down all the other vids these talented ladies have created!)

The first three are by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny, whose vid tag is here.

Black Black Heart. Spike/duster. You MUST watch this! MUST, you hear me!

Spanish Doll. Dru vid. A quite astonishingly brilliant attempt at getting inside Dru's head.

Suburbia. From the vidder's notes: This is my poor tiny Buffy vid. I always think of her as the one that overcomes everything in the end. I wanted to play with what happens before the end. And I thought the sound of this song, and the inevitable flowing quality of the lead singer's voice, lent itself well to the notion of evil seeping into places and lulling you into both a false sense of security and eventual disenchantment. Buffy's been fighting a hopeless battle since the start. The First Evil is just the most recent in a long line of evils, waiting to finally break her down.


The last two are by [livejournal.com profile] charmax. Her masterlist is here.

Still Breathing. Spike's redemption song. (I love this vid to absolute distraction!)

Your Woman. Spike kidnaps Angel to find out why he never loved him. This vid is like the bastard son of “The picture of Dorian Gray” and “Reservoir dogs”. (There are no words to describe it. The editing is pure genius!)

Bonus rec (because I HAVE to run, or I'd totally make another post):

All vids by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24, but especially 'Bachelorette'. (In the shape of a girl. Difficult to describe, but it's about feminism in the Buffy verse.)

Cost/Benefit Analysis by [livejournal.com profile] dessert_first - R – "The question is not if a missing eye is really worth it. The question is, what wouldn't you pay if you had the chance to make someone whole again?" Spike/Xander.

Lucky Me by [livejournal.com profile] millylicious - All – We all know Buffy's had a rather unfortunate love life, but it's never been so funny as it is here! Milly puts the vid together so cleverly you hardly notice all the work that went into it, because you're too busy alternately laughing and shaking your head at Buffy's, well, luck. Wonderful framing, lots of fun.

1. Girl Anachronism by [livejournal.com profile] rae1013 - All – I thought that the frenetic, disjointed pace of the song and vid did well in presenting River as a confused, frightened and yet funny character. Given the level of angst in her storyline I rather liked this approach to looking at the lighter side of things without overlooking her problems.
