Some are friendship and some are shippy.

1) If I Act (a Little Strange) by [livejournal.com profile] waddis: There's a difference between getting old and getting older, but neither one feels very good. Xander is turning 30 -which is approperaite seeing as he's obviously a month or a few weeks older than Buffy so his 30th birthday is either in last December or today. Happy birthday, Xander!
Check them out!! )

[livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends is a newish comm for Spuffy fics, begun last year by [livejournal.com profile] quinara, [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight, and [livejournal.com profile] bogwitch. Fics are up to 1000 words and somehow related to the prompt of the week/month.

Here's a sampling of five yummy bits of Spuffiness posted to the comm by five different authors.

Beer Bad Buffy, by [livejournal.com profile] thisficklemob
S4
Basically, what might have come next if the caveman beer hadn't worn off so quickly. Hilarious. I wish there were a whole longfic worth of this.

Time Stitches You (Spike/Willow, R)

After a long haitus, the author has continued to update this long time traveling saga featuring Spike and Willow in 2010. Spike wanted to go back and stop himself from getting chipped... He went more than a little too far back in time- 1753 to be exact.

This Is The End For Which We Are Twain Met (Willow & Angel, PG-13)

Well written in vivid description of grief and solace between Willow and Angel. Set at the end of season five/two, Willow comes to tell Angel about Buffy while carrying a grief of her own. A heartbreaking and bittersweet story about friendship.

Graham's Computer Woes (Willow/Graham, PG)

A rare fic from Graham Miller's point of view, this lighthearted story, set in season four, stays true to the canon while maintaining a hopeful tone.

Awakening (Willow/Tara, R)
 
Written in Willow speak, this fic combines prose and poetry to display the evolution of Willow in season four. Its a wonderful character study of Willow.

i burned warm and safe in your arms (Willow/Faith, NC-17)

Sexy and sweet, this fic shows a more vulnerable side of Faith and Willow as they find themselves coming together in season three.
The writing is lively to read.

I love seeing Our Heroes and Our Buffyverse from the outsiders' points of view. Here are five fics that do just that, with quite varied results.

1. Orbital Debris, by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri
post-series
AKA What the Poor Souls on the ISS Saw During Buffy Comics #34. Hilarious; unmissable.

A Lorne Thing (PG)

Pitch perfect Lorne spills his woes to a sympathetic bartender in season five. Written as if you're the bartender talking to Lorne, its a real treat to read vivicious' Lorne's story. Its set in season five and Lorne's descriptions of Angel's crew is hilarious. It also features a delightfully demonic appearance from Sweet.

My Sword Is My Song (PG-13)

Lorne is a survivor, dramatically dressed and ready with a sea breeze, but always ready to land on his feet. This fic shows in a sad yet understated way how Lorne moves on in post-NFA LA.

Same Time Next Year (Lorne/Fred, G)

A sadden Lorne completes an annual ritual to mourn Fred. This ficlet tugs at your heart strings and shows a vulnerable and romantic side of Lorne.

Lorne's List of No (PG)

Funny list of songs that Lorne never wants to hear again.

Nothing Goes Away (Lorne & Faith, PG-13)

Lorne tries to take care of Faith in New York City in this gritty fic with heart about a slayer and a demon looking to atone for their pasts in the big apple. The point of view is perfectly Faith but Lorne shines as her link to the PTB and confidante.

In no particular order:

Mechanics of the Act by [livejournal.com profile] nomelon, Spike/Illyria, NC17. Illyria is curious about her new form and enlists Spike to...well, no one instructs the God-King, but Spike does his best.

 i will love you 'til the noise has long since passed (Cordelia/Angel, PG)

Achingly lovely and wonderfully written, this quietly gorgeous fic gives Cordelia and Angel a happy ending post-NFA.

The Ones Not Kissed (Cordelia & Oz, PG)

Cordelia and Oz bond after the 'clothes fluke' and find they have more in common after all.

Dreams (the gone but not forgotten mix) (Cordelia & Doyle, PG)


Doyle may have died but he lives on with Cordelia's gift in this touching fic about the afterlife.

Salvage Mission (Cordelia, PG, Firefly crossover)


Cordelia, as a higher being runs across the crew of Serenity, while helping a slayer out. Descriptive and imaginative, the author makes Cordelia fit into the space opera while keeping with canon.

Iokaste (R)


A dark tale about Cordelia suffering under the possession of Jasmine in season four. This is a well crafted story that gives Cordelia a voice she sorely lacked in the later seasons.
