Running on Empty: by Cas –Spike/Dean - Dean is a broken man who is plagued not only by memories of the horrific things he's done, but also by lingering dark needs that he can't control. For him, there is no hope, until he meets the vampire Spike under circumstances that could finish them both. http://www.tthfanfic.org/story.php?no=24235

The Other Bloody Ring: by Mabel Marsters - since I seem to be doing crossovers, here is a Spike/Damon story. Sorter and fluffier than the rest, it is definitely worth reading. Thwarted in his efforts to hold on to the Gem of Amara, Spike opts to go visit with an old friend, leading to some unsettling discoveries. The slash is not explicit, but it makes you wish the story had gone on longer! http://mabel-marsters.livejournal.com/105183.html

Pity Us We Wakeful– Angel/Willow/Spike from Velvetwhip (Gabrielle) I believe that this is the one story in all of fandom that had the greatest affect on me. Bleak, tragic and beautifully written, it’s about the compromises we make, and how painful they can be. It’s greatest impact is that nothing really bad happens – no tragic event – it all takes place in choices people make and the half-life they live because of them.

A Sire’s Family – The first story of a trilogy. While this is definitely Spike/Angel, there is so much more going on in this wonderful AU. Angel calls his family to him very early in the series because Giles asks him to. Then this story takes a wonderful turn into a excellent created universe. featuring all of Angel's childer. http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=theladymerlin&keyword=A%20Sire%27s%20Call%20~%20Angel%2FSpike&filter=all

The Blind Man and a Fool to Lead Him by Cave Canem - Spike & Wesley - Post NFA. Spike is charged with taking Wesley to England, beneath the radar of the Senior partners. Brought back by Illyria, Wesley is permanently damaged by a complete inability to read. This story is funny, sad, and at times profound. http://wesleyfanfiction.net/archive/viewstory.php?sid=846

gen, PG13
It’s fun to watch it unfold in front of him.

- Untitled Crossover Snippet by vaznetti
gen, PG13
The man on the front porch reminded Bobby of a dog he had, maybe twenty, twenty-five years back, lean and watchful, and careful not to show how hungry he really was.

I loves me some cowboy lawyer, so here are five great fics with Lindsey McDonald in them for the year:

Hand Job by Celtic-forest
Lindsey/Spike - Lindsey has hand issues. Spike helps.

Bon Jovi Rocks by Ash-Carpenter
Lindsey/Dean Winchester (SPN crossover). Mostly cracky, but good good fun. Because who knows more about the rock-country ballad than Lindsey??

In the Interests of Science by Ash-Carpenter - Lindsey/Spike, dash of Fred. Also cute.

Nothing to Lose by Ash, again. This one is long, and although you may think it, it's not AU. Lindsey/Riley - Iowa and Texas meet before the series. Started in 2008 but finished in 2009, so it counts, right?

Arrangement by RockstarPeach - Lindsey/Giles, humanAU, some Wes and Spike in there. This is a long fic. Giles is a wealthy man and Lindsey is his kept boy. But then that hot young bartender, Spike, starts making trouble. ;)

1)  Everything Changes ([livejournal.com profile] starshine24mc , crossover with Torchwood, Giles/Jack Harkness, PG13)

Absolutely stunning little fic that goes with a lovely premise that Giles and Jack would totally run into each other in a dark alley one night.  You don't really have to know Torchwood to read this, just know that while the Btvs verse is about monsters, the Torchwood verse is all about aliens instead.

narrowing down to five was *much* harder than i thought it was going to be )

Though I've enjoyed lots of shows I get into few of the fandoms. So my favorite thing ever to come across are crossovers among the Buffyverse, Firefly and Supernatural. Crossovers are so often hard to get right but it's a real joy when they do.

1. Territory by [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature - All – Cordelia, Wesley and Angel run into someone else having a vision.

I think (and someday this may actually turn into an essay) that some of the most interesting fanfic can be metafiction, self-reflexively commenting on it's own genre while at the same time telling compelling, fun, beautiful stories.  Not heavy handed, not weird, just lovely. So, here are 5 fics that illustrated some aspect of metafiction for me this year....

1. Minutes of the Watchers' Council, Cleveland Branch (Selected Highlights) (Gunn/Xander, FRT)
by [livejournal.com profile] mireille719
Summary: Report from holiday committee: There will be absolutely no mistletoe included in the holiday decorations. Anyone found hanging mistletoe in an attempt to embarrass the Watchers will be summarily executed reprimanded.
How does it fit? Mir plays with style here, turning meeting minutes into something kind of adorable, definitely hugely funny, and establishes narrative without traditional narrative techniques.

this way for the rest. )

Sumary:  Written for obsessedmuch who requested a future setting, happy couple, and a puppy. This is set rather vaguely in a future where evil is still being fought by our heroes; Riley heads up a demon-hunting/Slayer-supporting military-type unit under the control of the Council rather than the government.
Why should you read it?  PUPPY!!  Besides, Xander/Riley, in my reading experience, is an awfully cute pairing anyway ;)

And since I'm awfully fond of the "X somethings Y Z'ed"-type fics, here's five I enjoyed in 2007 – some of them made me laugh, others ripped my heart out and stomped on it (y'know, in a good way), some of them managed both before they were over. Some are porny, others are completely non-porny, all of them make perfect sense for the characters.

In total, fifty ways somebody did something in the Buffyverse )

School Hard Re-examined, by [livejournal.com profile] peasant_. In this essay, the author makes what is to me a very convincing argument confounding the widely held fanon belief that Spike was bad at planning.

I must admit to a secret love of Angelus. The darker and naughtier, the better, IMO. Below are 5 Angelus fics in which the author gives me my Angelus fix.

Why?  OMG.  I hit refresh on her journal page every day just to see if Tabaqui has put up anything new, until I discovered the notify function!  This is a dark and fairly haunting retelling of the Peter Pan tale, but with Spike and Xander involved (and it may sound farfetched, but Tabaqui inserts them both into the story so seemlessly that you don't feel pushed or pulled or jolted with the crossover).  But be warned - this is NOT the Pan Disney captured.  Oh no, this Pan is the stuff of nightmares, a darkling child you would never want to show up at your window.  I love when people take a darker look at fairy takes, and Tabaqui is the perfect woman to do it.

Of all the lists I've made for this community, I think this is my favourite one... hee hee. All of these fics are waay AU long, majorly, plot-driven fantasy lands, which incorporate a ton of 'ships each. Of course there are het 'ships within each of the fics *if you squint hard enough*, but the main parings are all slash (and I'm not even going to try to be anal and list every 'ship within, 'cuz I know I'll miss some), so that's what I called the list slash multi-ship. I think most of thse fics are underappreciated, so give 'em a chance, check-em out and send lots of positive feedback to their authors, cuz, well, they deserve it!

So many ships so little time )
