Five favorite Giles-centric stories of the past year, arranged from shortest to longest. Well, five and a bonus.

Reluctant Masquerade by [livejournal.com profile] xspike4evax. A bit of Giles POV on Wesley circa BtVS season 3, perfectly spot-on.

Déjà vu by [livejournal.com profile] darkheartwalsh (DHW). There is a dead woman in his bed. It isn't the first time.
Stunning and absolutely heartbreaking portrayal of Giles soon after "The Gift". Also, it's probably the most efficient parallel I've ever seen used in buffyverse fics.

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,

Small Spaces by [livejournal.com profile] deird1. Dawn and Wesley slowly become friends. Starts from season 3. G-rated.

I'd love to say I'm so nice that I deliberately fulfilled [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll's request, but I just happend to have the same idea. Still, here you go.

1. A Nice Little Business by Lilachigh - Alice Pringle. Sounds like an OC, doesn’t she, but no, technically she fits this category. In the author’s words: the vampire lady referred to by Spike in The Replacement, when, sarcastically, he tells the Scoobies that he has been having a cup of tea with the lady who runs a tea-stall in the local garbage dump.
The rest of the recs went to The Bronze for Disco Night )

1) Giles Wallpapers by angelus2hot. A variety of Giles pairings in black and white. I particularly like the Giles/Buffy one with the clock for both its relaxed tone and the watch reminiscent of both Giles and their age difference. Read more... )

Another fanvids that I can't leave un-recced:

When I'm Up, I Can't Get Down (Firefly, Wash) by [livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl. Tribute to 'Wash', pilot extraordinaire, husband, friend and dinosaur wrangler.

What A Wonderful World (AtS & BtVS) by robinsrevenge. If anybody asks me what’s so special about Buffyverse, I could just show them this vid. There is everything.

Some favorite angsty shortfics from the past year.
Any bad English in summaries is mine and shouldn't be blamed on fic authors.

Diner at the end of the apocalypse (Spike, Willow, Wesley, PG) by [livejournal.com profile] lilithbint. A witch, a watcher and a vampire meet in a diner, and - as you already guess - this isn't a funny story...

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 )
[identity profile] spikesjojo.livejournal.com
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.
http://velvetwhip.livejournal.com/tag/fic%3A%20ats%3A%20pity%20us%20we%20wakeful

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

I love all these images of our beloved characters. They have a clarity and directness that appeals to me. [livejournal.com profile] chasingdemons is always careful to list sources too.

Vengeance is Mine by hufflepuffsneak (PG, gen, crossover with Marvel's Avengers, mentions of child abuse) - “Hey, I’m Natalie.” Natasha gave a name close to the truth, the child deserved that, but she hadn’t been a successful vengeance demon for the past six decades by handing out her true name to just anyone. (EDIT: Yay, the link is now working properly!)
-
Natasha as a vengeance demon! *_* Full disclosure: this ficlet was written for me as an Halloween treat (and at such it hits all my weak points... :D)

Just five 100-word flashes of brilliance.

Escape by [livejournal.com profile] garnigal. A Slayer and a Watcher, as things have always been.

Learning Curve by [livejournal.com profile] gilescandy. There really are no controlled circumstances in Sunnydale.

(Not) In Her Element by [livejournal.com profile] readerjane. In Sunnydale, the jump-rope songs teach self-defense.

Someone by [livejournal.com profile] a2zmom. She is no one.

In Which Owl Discovers An Office Key In His File by [livejournal.com profile] graycardinal. Come on. It's a Winnie The Pooh crossover, what else do you want?

And a bonus, since I'm partly responsible for it but didn't actually write it:
Substitute by [livejournal.com profile] speakr2customrs. Well, it's one way to fix "The Gift"...
[identity profile] zanthinegirl.livejournal.com
Time's Fool by Lady Jane at the Bloodshedverse, or at Elysian fields (may need to register to read at EF) Spike/ Buffy "eventually NC17" though it hasn't gotten there yet.

Future fic. Decades down the road Spike and Buffy meet up again for the first time since Sunnydale. Plotty goodness. A really interesting and believable future for Our Heroes. Great characterizations, and believable motivations. Also, the author gets the medical details right. I appreciate that! Warning: still a WIP

long, plotty, spuffy goodness! )

The Monsters of 54th Street by staringiscaring - "Because I'm the god-damned Slayer, that's why" (PG, gen, Nikki Wood-centric)
My Heart Was Never Pure by smellslikecorruption - Hard things/soft things. (K+, gen, Wesly-centric)
Life, Continuing by bruttimabuoni - An AU from mid-Not Fade Away, in which Wesley goes onwards, somehow. (Teen And Up Audiences, Wesley/Illyria)
Seasons Keep On Marching by bruttimabuoni - Just before Chosen, someone offers Giles a choice. He tries to choose wisely. But taking anything from Wolfram & Hart has consequences, no matter how wisely you choose. More people than just Giles will share those consequences, for good or ill. (Teen And Up Audiences, Giles/Lilah)
Memory has left me with that name alone by tigriswolf - Not everyone is born with a name on their hand – only the lucky ones. (PG, Spike/Xander)

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?

Howl by Shoopdancer (Angel/Darla) - Ah, Florence and the Machine! Another perfect, powerful song choice.

Dean having a thing for Wes speaking Latin; Wes being protective over Dean.
[Unfortunately, the fic is currently friendlocked, to read it you can ask the author to add you.]

- Favour Returned by eloise_bright

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

- Untitled Crossover Snippet by vaznetti

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. ;)

These are five fics (not that there are just 5 for me, but in the spirit of the comm...) that crawled inside my brain when I first entered fandom, my C/A Classics that I revisit when I want to be just a reader and not a reader/writer:

~~

As The Page Turns, by Evan Como. Giles visits LA right after Doyle's death to help catalog Angel's books. He brings with him questions he can't quite ask, and Jenny-shaped anger he can't let go of. What he finds is Angel and Cordelia with a new layering of grief, and maybe some new insight into two people he thought he knew.

This was too fun, and I'm probably going to do more, so....prepare yourselves? :D

My top five stories of 2008 that were in some way unexpected. My criteria include unexpectedness, in-character voices, breezy writing skills and memorable happenings. There are stories I might not otherwise have read but was incredibly glad I did.

Item Title or Description: Spill
Creator’s Name: [livejournal.com profile] miriam_heddy
Pairing: Xander/Spike, Harry/Bob (Dresden Files)
Rating: Adult
Why: I haven't read Dresden Files but seeing an imperfect Spike and Xander through the eyes of a stranger who has a pretty intriguing pairing in the works himself with a ghost was compelling. The story itself? Pure fun. And fantastic Spike and Xander voices and snarky relationship all the while saving the world of course. Or at least Cleveland. From sex. Seriously.

Here are five entries that illustrate why I love my fandom, in no particular order, though the first one is very important to me personally.

For the last two years, I've been writing a long (oh boy, is it long!) fic called Age of Unreason, and I've had the very good fortune to have [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003 as a collaborator. This first entry is another of the superb illustrations she's made for the story, without which it just wouldn't be the same at all.
