It’s a known fact that I have a mild predilection for young Mr Harris, so I challenged myself that I would do at least one list where Xander is nowhere in sight! *g*

Arrhizal by [livejournal.com profile] sunnyd_lite is a terrific look inside River’s head as she thinks about Simon and the rest of the crew. Beautiful evocative use of imagery makes this one a keeper.

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.

Amazing trailer which makes me want to see the movie... which, of course, doesn't exist. WHYYYYYYY?! Is there at least a fic? Anyone?

The Girl Who Falls Down Stairs by kaydeefalls – Work caution advised – A study of women in the Whedonverse and how they come into their various powers. An interesting take that shows a consistent storyline across the different properties of fear and reluctance, followed by a maturity and confidence after the transition.

I’m a sucker for a good BTVS crossover, so here are five that I come back to again and again.

Out of the Shadows by [livejournal.com profile] twilightofmagic is a gem of a Torchwood crossover and I’d recommend it even if you’ve never watched Torchwood, because it really doesn’t matter. Xander takes a walk to get away from the estrogen-heavy castle in Scotland and runs into someone who looks kind of familiar... I wish all my walks were this productive!

Lures you down the rabbit hole to the rest of the fics… )

5 Stories I Wasn't Able to Find
I asked and was told it was okay to post recs for stories I couldn't find the links to. Anyone know where any of these are?
Edited: I'm posting links to the stories as I learn what they are.

1) AtS, a short story I believe. A plague, created by humans I think, has been unleashed on the world. The Hyperion has become something of a safe house, keeping people physically safe from demons if not the plague virus. I think Lorn and some witches hightailed it out of there but were unable to take non-magical humans who wouldn't have survived in the other dimension. Cordelia and two others are sitting on the roof, looking at the sunset maybe. The other two go back in and, once they are out of sight, Cordelia starts showing signs of the plague (coughing?). Then she gets up, squares her shoulders, and goes back down to do the work of the day. Basically hiding the disease from everyone and getting on with the work.

So, this is a completely gratuitous list, but here are 5 prompts that were either requested by moi, or were requested by others but caught my eye. Note the rating/warnings, as I lean towards the dark side.



Title: Fractured Mirror
Author: [livejournal.com profile] shakensilence
Fandom: BtVS
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairing: Dark!Willow/Vamp!Willow
Summary: Halfrek grants Xander a wish in the episode “Two to Go.”
A/N: These are just a couple deleted scenes... in theory they could fit right into the episode without changing anything.
Warnings: dub-con, bloodplay, breath play, character death
Prompts: threading a needle, broken glass, bootlaces, "every me in every you", candle wax, spanking, pain/pleasure. I fit in what I could.

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.

Backwards, and in Heels by sobsister (PG13)
Crossover with Better Off Ted (highly recommended, btw) in which Adelle and Veronica (think Sue Sylvester in a power suit) are after the same pair of Manolo Blaniks.
