I want to thank the mods for keeping this comm open for all of us to look back and celebrate the wonderful works and people in our beloved fandom. It's all too easy to dwell on the negative, and forget all the amazing things happening all around us.

So, may I have your attention a little longer for some awesome fanwork creators worthy of wider celebration and special mention:

From [livejournal.com profile] thenewbuzwuzz: Blackout Spuffy poetry made from shooting scripts. Such creativity!

1. Fool for Love (VAMPIRE...)
2. "Angel", "Doppelgängland" and "Welcome to the Hellmouth" ("what's it like where you are?...", "good girls...", "past SHATTERS...")
3. "Hush" and "Some Assembly Required" ("- CONTINUING - MORNING...", "at the graveyard...")

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.

There were so many amazing fanworks in 2016 that I wish I'd taken better notes! Off the top of my head, I give you five fantastic pieces of artwork from five artists:

Artwork: Mr. Trick
By [livejournal.com profile] chasingdemons
The hardest part was picking only one image by the amazing Danna. But! I don't think I've ever seen another artwork of Mr. Trick! I couldn't be happier seeing this fashionable, retro glamor shot of Mr. Trick, a minor yet memorable BtVS demon. (Who alone, as a bonus, commented on the unnatural lack of POC in this supposedly SoCal town. Joss, was that your conscience speaking?) Anyway, this artwork is just gorgeous! (Also, whatever skincare regimen Mr. Trick's using to get that glowing-from-within look, I want it.) ;)

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.

So while I was sorting through files for my previous post in order to include one of my favorite of [livejournal.com profile] teragramm's icons I realized "Oh but she also produced this one....and hey, what about this one....and I really loved this banner...."   So the only sensible thing to do was make another post: 4 icons and one banner. Icons are listed chronologically.  This is an artist I tend to associate with clear, bright colors (especially "teragramm blue"), but obviously she is every bit as skilled with muted tones and deeply saturated effects. Once again, I'll let the images do the talking:



1) Drusilla retro (Center Crop) for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 Round 10 (June)



2) Faith #2 for [livejournal.com profile] whedon_elite Challenge 123 (July) we123b_iconbyteragrammaugust2015_BMC.jpg


3) Buffy "Happiness" for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 Round 12 (August) teragrammhappinessicon20in20rd12august2015.jpg

 
4) Tara #3 for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 Challenge 58 (November) teragrammSS58-5_2015.jpg


no title

5) Winged Buffy Banner (February)
Speaks to my soul, my Buffy-loving heart, and my Winged Buffy kink all at once. Dean Jackson's quote suits the character beautifully as do the ethereal, almost abstract wings that resemble extensions of her gown fluttering in the breeze, rather than literal feathered wings.

A continuation of sorts from my previous post: more icons, all from various [livejournal.com profile] slayerstillness challenges during the year excluding Challenge 39 covered in my previous post. Once again, verbiage will be kept to a minimum so the art can do the talking; and artists listed in alphabetical order by name.  (Otherwise I'd never get done here.)

I have set a restriction on myself for these posts: To list the artists only once within each post (so no duplicates, This was a helluva lot harder than I realized when you've got artists so fantastically talented and prolific like [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri, [livejournal.com profile] teragramm and [livejournal.com profile] tempertemper.  Complicating things is the fact that [livejournal.com profile] slayerstillness seems to have a smaller pool of regular participants than some other comms. (But don't quote me on that):





1) Drusilla by [livejournal.com profile] emmatheslayer for Challenge 57 (November)
BTW, I've seen other icons use this framing device and even this exact texture since then, but none so effectively.


2) Buffy IWRY (It Hurts Every Day) by [livejournal.com profile] muirthemne for Challenge 47 (June)
One of her only icons that round that did not take home a prize is the one that is my favorite. Go figure


3) Dawn by [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri for Challenge 40 (March)
Her Dawn set for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 was also superb. It's a departure from the style she's established this year of deep shadows.


4) Angel heart graffiti by [livejournal.com profile] tempertemper for Challenge 38 (January)
Sinister, witty and visually striking.


5) Buffy (A Father's Love) by [livejournal.com profile] teragramm for Challenge 51 (August)
In all honesty and with all due respect to the other wonderful artists I adore, this icon is probably in my top 5 for the entire year, if I was really truly forced to pare it down.

[identity profile] red-satin-doll.livejournal.com
I was trying to cull through all the 2015 [livejournal.com profile] slayerstillness entries when I realized that nearly half of the "top 5" from that comm actually came Challenge 39 "Love is in the Air" (the Valentine's challenge). So why fight it?  This was one of my favorite challenges/prompts from any of the icontests this year, in a completely "Can we do it again? Can we do it again?" way. Artists made icons of canon and non-canon pairings and everybody brought their A-game. So, herewith are 5 of my favorites from that round (with kudos to moderator [livejournal.com profile] starry_night for her inspired prompts:)

Once again, the list is ins alphabetical order of artists' names) and as with my previous post, I'll eschew my usual verbosity and let the images speak for themselves:



1) Buffy/Tara #3 (Please may I make a home in you?) by [livejournal.com profile] kwritten


2) Willow/Oz by [livejournal.com profile] rua1412


3) Cordy/Xander by [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri


4) Spuffy #2 by [livejournal.com profile] teragramm


 5) Fred/Gunn by [livejournal.com profile] tempertemper

I wanted to do an icon post inspired by [livejournal.com profile] kikimay's post one year ago but found it impossible to narrow the hundred of icons I've seen this year to just five, so I decided in the interest of fairness - and spreading the love to as many talented folks as I could - to divide the posts up by icontests. This first one is for [livejournal.com profile] whedon_elite The icons are listed in alphabetical order of artist's name (not preference).




1) Faith 5x5 (brighter version) by [livejournal.com profile] double_dutchess for Challenge 123 (July)


2) Illyria #1 by [livejournal.com profile] julie_izumi for Challenge 112 (March) 


3) Beneath You (Spuffy) by [livejournal.com profile] sandy_s for Challenge 128  
In fairness this entire post could have been five icons from this challenge alone.


4) Eskimo Willow by [livejournal.com profile] xclaire_delunex for Challenge 133 (Dec) 
This one is also a tiny "cheat" in that it was an alt rather than an entry.

5) Tara Family Golden Glow by [livejournal.com profile] xlittledreams for Challenge 115 (April)

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... )

I love seasonal coms, don’t you? It gives everyone a reason to show off their best work. Here are five of my favorite seasonal com posts in 2015:


Lies My Lover Told Me
fiction posted by [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight at [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles
Post-Chosen, Giles and Olivia meet and talk about then and now. The conversation goes in a direction that is not what Giles expected. As usual with shapinglight’s work, the characters are realistic and the dialogue is searing and brilliant.

See my pics below the cut )

Hi, guys! I'm here too and this is a post about my TOP 5 Buffy icons.

But do you know how difficult it is to make a post about favorite icons and actually pick just 5 of them? I have SO MANY! So I tried to use a criterion to facilitate my task: all these icons are about the ladies in the Buffyverse - especially Buffy herself and Dawn - and the dominant color is pink. The great thing about this choice is that it allows me to eventually make more posts (Favorite icons in Black, in Red and so on) and share all my love for these awesome and mini works of genius.


(The order is not about best or less best, it's just to facilitate myself)


IMPORTANT! EDIT: I forgot about the rules - because I'm actually the worst - so I'm making some edits with other choices. All icons totally made in 2014.

When I Ruled the World by kallysten. Pretty apt choice for the Fanged Four, and a nice "story of us" to remember them by.

Faith by [livejournal.com profile] valyssia - #18 - There are a number of nice pairing icons in this post of Faith and Buffy or Willow and Buffy but this solo one of Faith is a stunner.

Also, I can kill you with my brain by [livejournal.com profile] ale_skyz - Worksafe – I also liked the Zoe one under Artist Choice #4, but this one under Artist Choice 10 was a nice juxtaposition of cap and quote.
