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...")

Thought I'd better get this in quick before the comm closes. Again, no unifying theme, just five Buffyverse things I enjoyed in 2012.

Redemption - Scattered Thoughts by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy. Meta that I don't think has been recced yet, but even if it has, can't be recced often enough IMO (which also applies to BGF's masterful Buffy, the Vampire Slayer vs Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Halfway There by [livejournal.com profile] indri - PG-13 – Wonderfully spare account of Giles' journeys to rescue the Potentials in S7. She gives these many near nameless and faceless girls (and the ones who didn't make it) some real meaning, and makes Giles' life's work resonant.

1. Moist and Delicious, by [livejournal.com profile] rebcake
pre-series; Darla
In which Darla meets Jonathan Swift and inspires him to write a certain very famous essay. One of those cases where one of our vampires slides so neatly into history I can hardly believe she wasn't there.

Three Spuffy, two not, all things that had new chapters this year and that I'll be really excited to see finished!

1. The Vampire in the Basement, by [livejournal.com profile] beneficia - (7/16? chapters)
post-BtVS, AU Sherlock
Dawn Summers, latest vampire with a soul, wants 221A Baker Street for her very own. Only there's this obnoxious guy from upstairs who will not quit snooping, and damn if Dawn's going to let that slide. I would never in a million years have thought that the world needed a Dawn/Sherlock crossover, but I am so glad there is. If anyone's going to put Sherlock in his place, it's Dawn.

In March, Andy Hallett, the talented actor that portrayed Lorne on AtS, died at age 33. Here are some views of everybody’s favorite green demon with a throat (and heart) of gold:

There's no proper title for this (I also had it down as 'Where's there's a skill', and other cheesy headings). The topic here is poems and fics which draw on something bigger than fandom, weaving Jossverse motifs into wider cultural themes, but never losing sight of the fandom audience. (In other words, they are very, very clever, but also hugely fun for fans).

[livejournal.com profile] quinara, Spikeid II and III. Because it's in epic iambic pentameter, and based on the Aeneid, and yet it's accessible, funny, touching and in-voice. They're heroes, dammit. They deserve this poem.

Sometimes despair is conveyed so beautifully that you’re irresistibly drawn and in the end happy to have been. Dark S/B is good when it is luscious dark.
We're entering deeply moving territories , with some sparks of hope here and there,of course. ;)


1--When she kept showing up by [livejournal.com profile] pennydrdful.
PG. Post The Gift.
Part of him wanted badly, so very badly, to stop the car and turn in his seat, and just look at her. Soak her all in. But he didn’t. Partly because he was afraid if he did, she would simply disappear. Like Orpheus leading his girl out of the underworld, so very desperate, but forbidden to look back at her.


2. The Widening Gyre by [livejournal.com profile] cindergal.
R . Post series
Death has been a part of her life for almost as long as she can remember, and people she has loved have died before. But this is different. Everyday she sees more horror than she could have ever imagined, and that's saying a lot.Read more... )

I read a wide range of fic and pairings, and I enjoy teh angst and meaningful meditations on our beloved characters as much as the next gal. If I'm honest with myself, though, what delights me the most is laughing at those same characters when I find them in unexpected situations. (And if they fall down, literally or metaphorically, so much the better. I'm cruel that way.) With this self-awareness firmly in mind, I looked back over the year to the creative offerings that not only left me with a big smile on my face but that I return to when I need a little pick-me-up. Here they are, in order of discovery:
--

1. The Caseus Prize by [livejournal.com profile] philips
Diabolically hilarious Spuffy ficlet, R for "sexual wackiness." A tale of cheese voodoo gone wrong that makes Spike do things that would mortify even an (un)dead man. Combine a Big Bad who's fallen into a vat of curds n' bad!fic and the long-suffering Slayer who struggles to save his bacon while fending off his confused advances, and you have a recipe for some grade-A dairy-based comedy.

The Buffyverse fandom is getting on a bit now, but in spite of that it still attracts new writers and still inspires them to try new and different ideas - not just plotwise but structure/formatwise too. Here are five fics from 2008 told in innovative ways that I particularly enjoyed.

Dial N for Nancy-Boy by [livejournal.com profile] deird1 Spike and Angel, rating G. This hilarious and touching story by one of our best new writers reports a series of phone calls between Spike and Angel over a period of four years, from season 1 of AtS on, told in 28 drabbles. Wonderful stuff.

I thought I'd take a shot at fulfilling some Wish List requests. Don't know if these fit the bill but they're certainly worth the read.

(1) Connor!
I recced AtS No Limits back on Day 1 which contains quite a bit of Connor. However I also like this look at him very much.

Second Hand by [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 - R – Post-NFA, Spike has a final duty to perform, and it’s not unlike when he was last left behind. Just loved the rhythm of this whole thing, the look at Spike and Connor, where does each go from here. This is a pair I want to read more about because the few bits I have read are so good. It does contain a slash scene and I don’t know if that really fits the request but I think it’s an interesting look at the two.
