Dawn Meets Cordy by onegirlinalltheworld. So this isn't a fic about pre-series Dawn but I thought it was a nifty idea about how Dawn and Cordelia might have bonded in S2.

1. Samantha Winning’s Asylum - Buffy, Faith, and Cordelia are in a mental institution and something’s really wrong in a horror movie kind of a way. I’m very, very disappointed this isn’t a real movie even though it’d be too scary for me to watch with the sound on.
the recs are wondering if they could live in a Barbie world )

Some favorite crossover stories of the past year, arranged form shortest to longest.

All In A Day's Work by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy (Buffy-centric, crossover with the song "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots", PG-13).
To be fair, Buffy wasn't entirely sure how she was supposed to stop a giant robot about to attack Tokyo. But still, being told that someone else would handle it felt a bit weird.
Yes, it's crossover with a song. Yes, it works. Go read it!

Dead Girls' Party by Erimthar (Post-series - Tara, Cordelia, Anya)
In the Buffyverse, being dead doesn't mean you don't have important work to do. Ever wonder why vampires don't simply kill Slayers in their sleep? This is why.

Oh dear, another year where I read a lot of good fic and completely forgot to tag it so I could find it again, but here goes:

[livejournal.com profile] local_max's Making a Good Entrance and [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni's Connected both take on "Chosen", from very different perspectives, and both end up giving me a huge smile while still making some interesting commentary on the show. We critique because we love.

Originally, I was going to include one story by [livejournal.com profile] elviswhataguy in the fanfiction.net list, but I realized that there was so much great work it deserved its own post.

[livejournal.com profile] elviswhataguy writes thoughtful, subtle Buffyverse stories that offer fascinating insights into the character's minds. I love all of the little details about what demon-fighting tasks they're working on, the books they read, the odd little incidents that they remember.

1. Let It Bleed Willow/Faith, Rated M.
The first story in the Wickedgeekyverse trilogy. There's an intriguing plot, and along the way both Willow and Faith are struggling through the hard work of redemption--and find themselves unexpected allies, friends, and eventually lovers.

The way we see the relationship through the point of view of the other characters (Kennedy, Buffy, Dawn and Xander) is also terrific. Nobody is in the story just to be a one-dimensional cheerleader for the relationship, or a jerk about it. Xander in particular is well-drawn in this story; the story explores both his worst qualities and his best. He's a complex person who has his reasons to be less-than-thrilled about a Willow/Faith relationship.

The thing that takes it over the top for me is Faith: she is alternately hilarious, idiotic, aggravating, endearing, and insightful, and her journey to something approaching a real relationship is a joy to read. The sequel, Beggar's Banquet, is less plotty, and includes a Giles point-of-view chapter where Faith and Giles hunt a dragon in Cleveland.

Okay, I had a bunch of stories left over and no great way to group them! They are still awesome stories.

1) Amnesia!Spike by Mahaliem
Whenever I rec it I get a bunch of people agreeing it's wonderful but I hardly ever see it recced

Spike nodded in agreement. He was just getting used to hearing his name. Whatever had happened earlier in the evening had wiped his memory clean. He didn’t know who he was, and to hear the lot of them talk, he didn’t know what he was, either. In fact, he only knew one thing about himself. Luckily it was a very important thing.

He had a really cool coat.


the other recs are busy agreeing that Spike's coat really is cool )

These are five stories which don't feature popular ships and so might have flown under your radar. Give them a chance, because they're really worth reading!

1) Le Petit Mort (First Slayer/OFC; NC-17) by [livejournal.com profile] snogged - I realize that the First Slayer isn't the most well known of Buffyverse denizens, but this ficlet features her in the most intriguing way. An angsty-sexy take on the beginnings of a primal battle that will surely satisfy.

Darla goes on safari! I love the portrayal of Darla here, that she will dare the hazardous African sun for the sheer experience of the thing. The writing is gorgeous, the whole thing is suffused with sunshine, the setting is beautifully evoked (and we all know how I am about setting). This fic reminds me anew just how much I love Darla.

There's always been a sea inside of her.

 i will love you 'til the noise has long since passed (Cordelia/Angel, PG)

Achingly lovely and wonderfully written, this quietly gorgeous fic gives Cordelia and Angel a happy ending post-NFA.

The Ones Not Kissed (Cordelia & Oz, PG)

Cordelia and Oz bond after the 'clothes fluke' and find they have more in common after all.

Dreams (the gone but not forgotten mix) (Cordelia & Doyle, PG)


Doyle may have died but he lives on with Cordelia's gift in this touching fic about the afterlife.

Salvage Mission (Cordelia, PG, Firefly crossover)


Cordelia, as a higher being runs across the crew of Serenity, while helping a slayer out. Descriptive and imaginative, the author makes Cordelia fit into the space opera while keeping with canon.

Iokaste (R)


A dark tale about Cordelia suffering under the possession of Jasmine in season four. This is a well crafted story that gives Cordelia a voice she sorely lacked in the later seasons.
