Because nothing takes my mind off things like combinations of crack, fluff, smut, and Spuffy. When I think of every one of these fics, one of the first summaries that come to mind is "everything is happiness, and nothing hurts". None of the stories take themselves too seriously. Most of them are full of smut. All of them make me smile and laugh. (It's late. Sorry! I somehow thought the end time was midnight local.)

1. 10 Ways to Defrost Your Vampire Boyfriend by TerrusDacktellus (DactylGirl, [livejournal.com profile] lady_sybyl). I think the title says it all.

1. Dead!Giles 'verse by [livejournal.com profile] thea_bromine. Spike helps a dying Giles. Things get strange.

2. Of Old Mystics by Omphalos and [livejournal.com profile] wolfling. After the Council has fallen, Giles rescues Ethan from the Initiative only to learn that together they have a destiny. One of my long-time faves.

3. Responsible Adults by mydiera and [livejournal.com profile] sadbhyl. Giles/Ethan/Joyce. On the night Ethan would have pulled that Fyarl transformation spell on Giles, Joyce joins them. Things change from there.
Note: Sadbhyl wrote an essay: When You Girls Are Older You'll Understand (Rupert Giles/Joyce Summers/Ethan Rayne)

4. Bookends by [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano. Buffy/Giles. Mmm, a story that brightens my day when a new chapter is posted.

5. In the Morning of the Magicians by [livejournal.com profile] indri. Ripper/Ethan back in the day. On of my favorite BtVS stories.

Five Dark and Creepy Classics for Halloween


1) Twitch (Spike/Xander) by The Spuzz:

This is one of the creepiest Spander tales you’ll ever read, with Spike at his most dark and obsessive. I’ve been haunted by it since the first time I ever read it and I am sure you will be too. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

Some favorite year 2014 stories that - in one way or another - are about point of view. (Or at least I consider them to be.)
Any bad English in summaries is mine and shouldn't be blamed on fic authors.

Illusions (Angel, Spike, OC, PG-13) by [livejournal.com profile] ash_carpenter. Brilliant outsider POV story, showing that in Sunnydale getting it almost right is never enough. (And you read it right - ash wrote PG-13 gen story, her hand slipped.)

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 tend to go for stories where the victim's/slaves'/whatever-you-want-to-call-it thought-patterns are being changed; largely, I think, because there is a parallel to how we are molded by job/society. However, not all of these are dark.
But ... not worksafe. None of them. Don't even think of opening them at the office unless you work at this place (see last strip).
Edited: I now know where the last story is.

1) Ash Carpenter's The Show: Angel, to better infiltrate the Black Thorn, presents Spike as his slave. This one is very dark.

These are five stories I revisit whenever I need cheering up.

1) The Key to Her...Heart? by [livejournal.com profile] purplefeen:
What do you get when you mix a pretty girl, a chastity belt with a missing key, and two sexy vampires? A delightful Willow/Spike/Angel romp filled with romance, smut, and a lot of humour. Feen outdoes herself here.This one is adults only, so bear that in mind.

The description kinda says it all. Each of these fics had really ridiculous premises that worked on so many levels. Much laughter ensued.

1. Nicollette Says Jump by Kalima
Spike/Nicollette/Xander, NC-17, Season 4
Summary: Spike has a yen for a big girl. Xander eats too many brownies. Hijinks ensue.

Review: Oh my Lord, how I love this fic. This is the penultimate Spike/Xander buddy fic for me. Strapped with having to babysit Spike, Xander accompanies him to the Bronze where Spike sets his sights on picking up a hefty chick with tons of spunk. Nicollette is a wonderfully realized OC. She's got confidence, sex appeal and a fun-loving spirit that proves to be too infectious for Xander to ignore. The ridiculous antics they get up to at Nicollette's apartment followed by the pickle they find themselves in afterward is just too good. The characterizations are amazing, the plot is delightfully funny, and I just couldn't stop laughing the whole way through. This fic is a total joy. Also nice to see Spike diversifying his taste in women beyond emotionally unstable waifs!

I love a good, plotty fic. I'm also partial to a well-written piece of erotica. If it has some semblance of plot, great, but of course it doesn't have to. Not really the point.

Erotica, of course, is very much in the eye of the beholder (as it were), and these five fics won't appeal to everyone, but they're all well-written, (and hot IMO). Having said which, please heed ratings/warnings etc posted here, as well as on the fics themselves.

Empty Rooms, Shuttered and Dank, by [livejournal.com profile] nomelon, Angel/Spike/Riley, Hard R/NC17. The author makes this rather unlikely threesome all too believable, with her trademark gritty prose. I swear you can almost smell the sweat.

Ah the abandoned WIP. Some of them are already epics, some only 5 or 6 chapters but chances are most of them had readers still waiting for an ending (or sometimes a middle). Finished or not though, many of them are worth reading anyway for the great stories or character moments they did have.

1.Season Noir by Anna S. - NC-17 – An ambitious attempt at a Buffy S8 that had one of the most fascinating final chapters I’ve ever read. A pity it’ll never get to its intended conclusion but I’m not too unhappy it ended on the note that it did.

You know how you can read some stories and yes, they're good, but you don't think about them again after you've read them? And then there are some that you can't get out of your head and you go back to again and again? The following are five from 2005 of those that fall into the second category for me. I've only mentioned completed stories, though there are some WIPs that may well be in my list for 2006.
