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.

As usual, I can't collect five things in a particular category and time is running out, so here are five of my favourite fandom things from 2016.

First some wonderful fan art.

Venus and Mars by [livejournal.com profile] rbfvid (Restfield). This piece was inspired by one of my fics (of the same name) but that's not why I'm reccing it. I'm reccing it because it's beautiful and clever, and in all ways absolutely superb.

You didn't think I could stop at 5, did you?

Here are 5 more amazingly fab stories starring Willow.

1) Home is Where Your Heart Is (Willow, Xander, Sheila, Ira) by [livejournal.com profile] sandy_s: Another Spuffy legend tries her hand at Willow and once again does it exceedingly well. [livejournal.com profile] sandy_s gives us Willow's last visit with her parents but she also gives us a lovely evocation of the enduring friendship of Willow and Xander. A twofer that's twice as nice for that. This one has a core of sadness and resignation that really resonates. Oh, this one was written for [livejournal.com profile] whichwillow, as are the next two (and The Killer in Me, from my earlier list). That fest really inspires wonderful stories.

Some vids about characters who don't get the spotlight often.
Any bad English and awkward phrasing in summaries is mine and shouldn't be blamed on vid authors.

Don't Forget Me by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 (Buffy/Riley) "But she doesn’t love me." Riley as defined by Buffy.

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.

Apologies if any of these have been recced before, I have a lousy memory!

Serenity, Nevada by Christina K.
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4552093/1/Serenity_Nevada
Summary: Oz's summer road trip takes him to a sleepy little town in Nevada- one that just woke up with a big new problem, and the local sheriff and citizens may have to face a reality they never expected before the closing credits. Crossover with Firefly.

It's a lovely AU romp in which Sheriff Malcolm Reynolds and his team have to deal with a sudden incursion of the supernatural. Fortunately they have a little help from a familiar Buffyverse character...

Hope you'll like them.

I know I always am full of squee when I see a banner accompany a story, act as a beautiful header, or exist purely for our viewing pleasure. It's also safe to say that not everyone is interested in manipping and banner making is definately a graphic outlet that allows for a fair amount of flexibility. Really great at working with screencaps? Then banner making might be the righth choice for you. Here are a few beautiful contributions that really took my breath away this year. These are also all worksafe.

1. Frozen Memories by [livejournal.com profile] alwaysjbj    [Giles/Jenny]
There's not a lot of art dedicated to Giles & Jenny, and why not? This is a beautiful piece with some dramatic textures. The haunted look on Giles' face in contrast to the placid serenity of Jenny's reminds us of how gutting her death was.

Prepare for lift off )

R, post-Grave. Spike wishes that he "never got the bleeding chip in the first place," - and discovers the world dominated by Adam and his minions, where Giles, Gunn and Lindsey do underground work and chipped Buffy is kept in a cell for zombified Riley Finn's distraction.

My top 5 favorites in various categories.

We ain’t going anywhere but got suits and cases

1. Favorite Vid
Jesus Walks by [livejournal.com profile] mimesere – All – I haven’t seen many Gunn vids around but I have to admit, after seeing this one I have a hard time imagining someone’s done it better. Just gripping. I think it brings out the separateness and struggle of this character’s arc really well.

If I had to name a theme to these it would probably be diversity. Different genres, different styles, different subjects but then difference has always been a great strength of the Buffyverse. In no particular order:

1. Five on the Dime by [livejournal.com profile] shati

Dark and complex Buffy POV. This vid is the still small voice that whispers she’s a killer, the drip, drip, drip of the Slayer death wish that might be eroding her humanity.

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 )

My problem is that out of my fic-reading-time-pie the biggest slices are S/X, which leaves a lot smaller slices for everything else. Personally I’d like to solve this by having a bigger pie but RL isn’t very cooperative in this respect. So I ended up having one big slash category because I probably don’t have enough items for the various individual characters. But each one of these fascinated me in some way and just had to be recced.

(1) Bent Justice by [livejournal.com profile] toobusytowrite - NC-17 – This was that rarest of birds – a slashfest with plot. This story has a variety of threads that are wound about each other until the last 4 chapters or so. It’s a long fic compared to most and I was very impressed that the author could keep it interesting for that length of time. It’s Spangel but there are a whole host of characters who make an appearance in this human AU, and it was downright fun for me to see them appearing one by one in this universe. I’m glad I came across it as a WIP because taking on a long story can be a hard thing to squeeze into a busy schedule. But as soon as I read it, I was eagerly awaiting the updates to this as they spilled out.
