The Carnivorous Carnival by [livejournal.com profile] bewilde
It's a few chapters in, but he's there. At least in every version of the story that I've read so far.
"This, Me of the Past, is what we in the Future call Pokémon Go. (..) With this Smart Phone, which I have through a clever mixture of magic and technology enabled to speak to servers in the Future, you can catch all of the Pokémon long before anyone else on Earth even has access to the game. You, my younger self, shall be the world’s first True Pokémon Master.”

The Prompt: Write about changes in relationships (friend to enemy or vice versa), or introduce characters that have never met, or something else that fits the theme.

Party Demons by [livejournal.com profile] kantayra - The world might be ending but at least Clem’s made a new friend. Hee!

Sleeping Arrangements by [livejournal.com profile] gwynnega - given that they're drabbles, it can be hard to describe the story without ruining the surprise

Unconventional by [livejournal.com profile] glassslipper - ditto

All in the Retelling by [livejournal.com profile] xmirax - rescuing the world from Angelus as told by one who lived to tell the tale

Hubris by [livejournal.com profile] knotted_rose - I don’t want to ruin the surprise. Angel story.

Edited on 30 Oct to include author names,

1. The Very Secret Diary of Andrew Wells by deird1 - Andrew’s journal, not exactly what you’d expect

2. hearing, seeing by [livejournal.com profile] kwritten - Dawn and Spike, grieving for Buffy, take a road trip without telling anyone

3. The Twelfth Sister by rowan (littlerhymes) - just so you know, very dark, but I'm pretty sure you alreay know that.

4. All Set Down - Oh Goddess, yes!

5. devo79’s Blackout - I always cry at the end

Some of my favorite past year's long fic, arranged from shortest to longest.

signifying nothing by [livejournal.com profile] kwritten (Dawn-centric, PG-13, ~31 000 words). Season six character study. After her sister's death and resurrection, Dawn grapples with her own humanity and tenuous grasp on reality; as her depression swings her from reckless to numb, she reaches out to new friends for help and a new perspective.

Some favorite gen stories of the past year, arranged from shortest to longest.

Distractions by [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano (Giles, Xander, PG). A library horror drabble that could really give you chills.

Parent Traps by [livejournal.com profile] aliceinkinkland (Willow, Anya, Xander, Tara, G). After "The Gift," Willow, Tara, Xander, and Anya discuss how they’re going to raise Dawn without turning into their own not-so-perfect parents.

Yes, I know that everything [livejournal.com profile] sparrow2000 writes is excellent, but here are my top five picks from the past year:

1. No Lodging is probably me favorite fic of the year. It's tragic and haunting, and the language and imagery just stayed with me.

2. Words to Live By is a fascinating and original look at Xander in one of his darker moments.

3. One of These Days is a little slice of Giles' and Ethan's history. It's now head canon for me.

4. Pushing Limits is Xander/Lindsey pre-slash. Xander's living for the moment. At least, for the moment.

5. Distraction is Spike/Xander. A slice of their life together, and the voices are absolutely perfect.

I tried to pick fics that [livejournal.com profile] sparrow2000 didn't rec already but I had to mention [livejournal.com profile] aadler's awesome remix.

All the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile by cori_the_bloody: Post-Chosen. Xander’s been reeling from all the change in his life. New city, new job…it’s all a bit overwhelming. He’s still got a lot to be thankful for, though, and his friends are determined to remind him of that fact. One-shot written for a Christmas fic exchange.
More Xander goodness )

Okay, I'm pretty sure I've read Bit Parts before but I did just rediscover it.

1. Wolfling's and Wesleysgirl's All the Wrong Places. I've only read Part 1 so far but it is delightful. Doyle's trapped in a computer, about three years after he's died, talking or e-mailing actually with Wesley.

the other recs are exhausted and wondering if signing up for NaNoWriMo wasn't a mistake )

Goodbye, JustRewards.com. Farewell, spikeskat.rogue-poet.com. Au revoir, The-Sandlot.com. You still may be partially available via Wayback Machine, but I miss you in all your full-functionality.

When websites die, some excellent but not well-distributed fics die with them. Which is why I am SO EXCITED when favorite writers start to put their old stuff up on Archive of Our Own, where it will presumably gain immortality a longer life. In addition, AO3 and some other sites allow for ePub download to reading devices, something that wasn't around when the stories were originally written. Thanks to AO3, Elysian Fields, and The SpuffyRealm for keeping up with new technologies — but especially thanks to the writers who care enough to feed the fic-hungry beast*, even if they aren't active in the fandom anymore.

Here are just a few, in alphabetical order:

Five fabulous writers (and some bonuses)... )

Or at least, groups of two or more people ready to embark on plot. Mostly ensemble, mostly fics in which things happen. :)

1. Dreamchain, by [livejournal.com profile] erimthar
S5 - Scoobies, almost-OCs
Vampire plague is about to, er, plague Sunnydale, and the Scoobies are on the case -- as are the Korean Slayer of 1933 and her gumshoe sidekick Sid. Excellent character voices, but what I love most about this fic are Sid and Cho, whom I'd happily read whole fics about. Barbara Stanwyck glamour and the Slayer burden, plus Sid "cracking wise": what's not to like?

The two first ones have only one chapter for now but very promising.They're all S/B greatness.

--1.In absentia by [livejournal.com profile] erinya
PG
Post NFA. WIP
“Funny thing, he'd always thought he would be there when it happened. Dealing the blow himself, once, or later, at her side to the last. He'd never thought it would happen like this, that he'd hear the news from a Riigi demon in a bar just this side of Hell, a day late and half a world away.”


2--When the rest of heaven was blue" by [livejournal.com profile] ruuger.
R. Post series A.U. Wip
But what most of all clued her in on the whole spell-going-awry business this time was that when she had closed her eyes - just to blink, because the rain was getting into her eyes - she had been in a small back alley, fighting two vampires back-to-back with Spike, and when she opened them, she was in a stable.
With a horse.
A beautiful white horse that was looking at her curiously with its head tilted to the side in an oddly familiar angle.
