Who ever gets tired of icons, or amazed that we can still find new and interesting takes on images that have become very familiar over the years? Well, here are some that definitely caught my attention.

Buffy #10 by longerthanwedo. I liked the psychedelic, cosmic look of this icon. Also #14 of Willow and Tara looks particularly dreamy.

Some classic Mr. Gordo stories, because he deserves it (and also because [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll requested =)

Fuzzy Thoughts (+ additional AO3 link) by [livejournal.com profile] deird1. Mr Gordo and Mr Pointy do not get along very well. G.

Since my last list was Willow-centric, I thought I should post a list of five fics I love which don't feature her (I know... didn't think I read anything like that, did you? Surprise!)


1) For My Pain, A World of Sighs (Spike/Xander) by [livejournal.com profile] baudown: This is an exquisitely-wrought cold-chill of a tale - an AU where Spike arrives in Sunnydale earlier than we see in canon... and alone. This is the Spike who rained death and destruction in Europe in all his merciless glory and I am awed anew every time I read this story.

More of the Willow-less tales ahead )

[livejournal.com profile] indri is one of the best writers in the fandom. Here are five of her wonderful stories from the last ten years (her most recent stories can be found on LJ, but I've linked to her website)

Foreign Devils. PG-13. Written in 2002, before the character was given a name, this is the story of the Chinese Slayer.

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.

I think that is just an adorable video! The maker paced everything so well that its like the actors are singing the song. It made me want Amy Acker and J. August Richards to have a Russian singing career and make lots of cute music videos.

Her Career (or Mine) (R, Kaylee/Cordelia)
This is a ghost story (she's the haunted, haunting kind.)

Oases (PG-13, Kaylee/Kennedy)
So really, this is all Mal’s fault.

The Sea Inside (R, Kaylee/Dawn)

There's always been a sea inside of her.

Here and Now (R, Kaylee/Inara/Tara)
'Live life as it comes to you,' Kaylee said. 'It may not be coming for much longer.'

Wenches and Wormholes (PG, Kaylee/Fred)
She thought that she didn't belong there.

An Alphabet Of Fred

One-shot, PG, AtS season 5. Illyria tries to cataloguize Fred's memories to define herself. Fascinating character study.

Just a brief reminder to everyone that Top 5 will be closing next Sunday at this time. So if you're still debating a list, you've got time!

Fred and Dru by [livejournal.com profile] stawberynvanila – Worksafe - I quite liked the stylish, sophisticated look of this.

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. ;)

Babyfics are a major guilty pleasure of mine. These, however, have no guilt whatsoever associated with them. Five pairings, five different flavors ranging from sweet domesticity to character study to tear-your-heart-out angst.

Some Enchanted Evening by [livejournal.com profile] speakr2customrs
PG, During "All the Way", the Trio decided to repeat Ethan Rayne's trick with enchanted costumes. The result was quite unexpected... A brilliant and funny re-imagination of BtVS mythology; a smart culturological essay on the BtVS influences and roots; seemingly fluffy "what if" that reflects on notion of a hero and ponders how thin the line between heroes and villains is. The idea behind Andrew's transformation is particularly inspired. A must.

Here are five fics that, when I read them, made me say to myself, "That is just amazing!" I hope you enjoy them.

I think this story has been recced already, but never mind. It can't be recced too often IMO.

Of All the Wonders I Have Yet Lived, Angel/Darla R by [livejournal.com profile] girlpire. A heartbreaking look at what might have happened if a human Darla hadn't died after all when Connor was born.

This isn't a perfectly coherent group, but I think they all have something in common: taking a strong format/theme/gimmick and running with it successfully. Each one made me think 'I would never have done that - but I wish I could!' (Several are not rated, but nothing seriously over PG-13).

In no particular order:

Pentimento: 52 moments that never happened to Dawn (and one that probably will) by [livejournal.com profile] nwhepcat- an amazing run of drabbles inserting Dawn into seasons 1-4. Funny, sad and insanely clever - the best kind of fic.

Here's 5 (more or less) fics I found outstanding this year, some because I stumbled across them as a fanfic judge. See? No Good deed ever goes unpunished. Or something like that.

Blood Oranges, by theblackmare Rated FRT )

For the rest of these, I can lift from my judges comments. (There was concrit, too. If I judged you for SOTHA or Lie to Me Round 7 last year, and you never got my comments, ask and ye shall receive. Even if I was mean, concrit is concrit. Just don't hurl rocks through my window or anything. Drop by my journal later and I'll post the categories I judged on those. I won't share scores, just the comments I wished I could leave at the time.)

Talking Heads, by washaway Rated FRT )

Undercover, by lorelei_frolick Rated FRT )

Old Bronze, by D M Evans Rated FRT )

And last but not least, something I didn't judge or get around to nominating, but which I recc'ed earlier in the year on my journal:

There Should Have Been Trumpets, by rahirah Rated FRT )

And I'll slip in a bonus 6th rec: Moon Magic by lit_gal. Rated FRM, to be safe.  )

There seems to be an idea around that gen fic isn't written or read very often but this year I found that many of the fics I wanted to put on a list were gen ones.

1. Half the Pieces - by [livejournal.com profile] frimfram - All – Spike-centered spin on “A Christmas Carol.” Inventive, fun, moving, and perfect for the season. Go read!
